Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing genealogy since 1976. This has been a fun hobby looking up my ancestors and finding out who and where they are buried. It shows me what stock I come from my heritage.

Plus this is a great source for finding others in my tree to fill in the gap of blanks in my family history.

I use this as a training place for helping others trying to find their ancestors to learn where they come from and who they may be related to.

Researching surnames on Boelling, Gardner,
Ungry, Wert, McLaughlin, Gustin, Brinkmann, Black,
Henry and others.

Been known to be a Gravestone whisperer.

Has the cemetery been renamed?

This is the information I use to place him in Woodland Cemetery.

Family says she and her son are buried in the same plot but it is does not have a stone.

*Family gave me this info so I do know they are there no matter what the office says. This has happened several times to me and I did find their actual plots. Thanks so very much for trying~~

Hi Tom,

Called Inglewood Cemetery for a location and the only person by that name they have died in 1939. Checked the CA Death Records for 1940 - 1997 (you listed his death in LA Co.) and there is also no one listed by that name who died in CA. Is it possible that 1958 was mistakenly entered for 1939? I did get that location.

Hi, I was looking for a John Hinton when I came across the document I posted on John Hinson's memorial page. It shows him dying in 1884 instead of 1890.
