Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have loved recording my family history for about 40 years and teaching the last 15.

My Children's PATERNAL: Byington, Carr, Molland, Holkins, Gallaway, Norton, Terry, Williams, Hall, Frisbie, Swetland, Butler, Donaldson, Piper, Little, Burdick, Munsee, Moore Also: Kofoed, Bell, Jensen, Munch, Christensen, Booth, Panting, Crook, Madsen, Larsen, Garwood, Davies, Kerby, Lane

My Children's MATERNAL: O'Bryan, Whitworth, Kochendarfer, Schluneger, Mize, Robinson, Hall, Copeland, Rogers, Philips, Baer, King, Pratz, Lebo, Nooner, Reynolds Also: Harper, Gowan, Smith, Putnam, Brock, King, Boniface, Pitcher, Spooner, Griffin, Brassell, Allen, Dolby, Robbins, Murray

Some of the memorials I manage are family, but it never hurts to ask to have a memorial transferred. Please include your relationship to the deceased when you make your request by using the EDIT button on the memorial you wish to have transferred. If you are related in any way it will probably be yours, unless it has been promised to another (or my family), in which case, the closest related person will get it. In my opinion, the Golden Rule trumps the guidelines, and hoarding is just stingy and small. I firmly believe family should be with family. Thanks for understanding.

Mistakes happen, I'm famous for finger errors and welcome any additions or corrections. When asking for a memorial correction, addition, or transfer, PLEASE use "Edit" then "Suggest A Correction" on the memorial you wish to have updated instead of posting message's on this page. Thanks

Most photos I add have been sent to me with permission from others over the last 40 years and will try to credit them when possible. If you find a photo that you claim as your property I will remove it at your request. My objective in adding photos is to honor these people and to aid fellow researchers with their genealogy, never for profit. You may use my personal photos as long as you give me credit and you are in no way profiting from them.

See this website for pointers for taking headstone photos.

I am very thankful for all the work those who create memorials have done on the behalf of others, like myself, so we may pay respect to our deceased family members, no matter how far.

I would also like to thank all of the wonderful volunteer photographers. You are doing a great service to digitally preserve these cemeteries, helping to preserve the memory of those that have gone before us.

"Thank you" seems such small words, considering the time, effort, and personal sacrifice that goes into making this great site.

Slack photos

I've added the photos, but there is a problem with tagging and adding a title to the photos. I contacted support, they are working on it. I'll try to remember to go back to it tomorrow.

RE: Thomas Leonard Lamb 78298262
Thanks for letting me know I had posted the same photo twice. The one that is wrong was posted on someone elses memorial, not mine. In addition the incorrect one has the wrong middle initial. I checked the California Death Index and the correct initial for the wrong one should be the letter L not P. The middle name of the correct one is Patrick and Ive made the change, including getting the vital for the death dates and place. I also deleted the photo of the wrong one.

RE: Caroline Boynton
Oh good, there you are. The other sides of the monument may be of interest as well. I posted the one which showed the lineage from the original immigrant, the other two sides - look for Richard F Somes (15689133) then George Harriman (15689036). Not perfect lighting on George, they are both on the list to re-take, there was nice diffuse light this morning, but the cemetery is a skating rink.

Happy New Year

Aubrey O'Bryan photos
I uploaded 5 photos for Aubrey, partly because the marker is a little difficult to read in photographs. I tried to get low angled sunlight, but the marker is below the level of the lawn in that area, so it wasn't as successful as I had hoped. Anyway, if you would like to post other photographs (portraits, etc.), just let me know which photos you would like me to delete. I would prefer to leave at least one close up and one "view" shot, but I'm not sure which ones you would prefer.

Redick O'Bryan
Hi Janice,
I see you've posted a great deal of information on Redick O'Bryan (b. 1820 d. 1893) and I have a question I wanted to see if you could answer. His first wife was Mary Allie Bell but I've yet to find out anything more than her name. Do you happen to know her birth/death information or who her parents were?
I'm descended from their son William Fountain and the second William Fountain; my mother is an O'Bryan.
Thanks in advance!

Zerze M O'bryan
My name is Don West, we met in Salt Lake Family History Library years ago. I started working on the O'bryans again.Find A Grave Memorial# 75058079. In family search I posted Zerze's Obituary in the Life Sketch,and Doctuments , it shows the cemetery where he was buried, Mount Pleasant cemetery. We probably need to meet again, but give me some time I am collecting pictures from relatives and adding sources to many O'bryan's.

Hi, the above is at least one of the photo requests you have in Sts. Peter and Paul Cemetery in Springfield, PA. If you would call the cemetery office and post the locations, we volunteers would be happy to fulfill it. Thank you!
