Bio and Links
Bio Photo In February 2008, my son invited me to join his Geni Family Tree which sparked my interest in the family histories for myself and that of my wife. Since then, I have researched birth, death, and census records (Winning, Hudelson, Wilbur, Howell, Jolly, Dye, Oates, Hibbert, Poage, Clark and Krigbaum families) which have given me a wealth of information. I have walked cemeteries in and around California and Nevada as well as visited local museums which gave me some interesting family history. In May 2009, my wife and I took a road trip through several midwest states to walk some cemeteries as well as visit some family. While I am new to being a genealogy sleuth, it has become quite a hobby and I find it's like putting pieces of a puzzle together and oh so fun!

Waters at Mount Moriah
My apologies for the last "note". I wanted you to know that William J. Waters actually does not have a headstone. Like Bessie, his wife, and the second Bessie, they only have funeral home markers with names/letters in them. William's funeral marker however, has all the letters missing. I did take a photo of his marker and the whole lot with the 3 graves. I also took a close up of his marker with a couple of the letters and a number I found in the ground next to the marker. It is unfortunate his name is missing from this marker. I will post what I photographed and you can decide if you want it to remain. If you don't, I'm happy to remove it. I will add the location edits for all three graves as well. I can photograph the death certificates for you when I go back to the archives next week. I would have done it when I was there last Thursday, my volunteer day, but didn't have my camera.

Wm.J Waters and Bessie Waters
John, I have found and photographed graves at Mount Moriah Cemetery for William J. Waters - died May 9, 1923, Bessie Waters - died Nov.18,1937 and Bessie Waters - died June 18, 1907. I've checked death certificates for all three and they all died in Butte, Silver Bow Co, MT. Wm and Bessie were from England and young Bessie was born in Michigan and died in Butte. Add their memorials to Mount Moriah and I will post photos. (<:)

Well, hopefully Marjorie's shoulder troubles will keep improving.... physical discomfort/pain makes one lose sleep....and then when a body is weakened, it becomes harder to heal. ach.

Good on the watching the on their performing poorly!

Good to hear from you!

Hi John,

I am related through his wife Mary Jane (Krigbaum) Clarke. I had requested a photo of her gravestone several years ago and was looking at it again today after a volunteer gave me the Yubacounty web site and I found that you had previously entered them and also their children including some nice photos for Eliza Jane and Byron Bradley Taylor; all I had for her was her name and no spouse. I wanted to thank you for your hard work and know that I sure appreciate it, bob
