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

Any photos I add are from public sites, with no known restrictions on publication. 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. See this website for pointers for headstone pointers.

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.

Byingtons in Plymouth, IA
A couple of years ago I took some pictures of some Byingtons in Plymouth IA and was wondering if you would want the hard copies of these pictures. If so, send me your address @ and I will mail them to you. Please let me know as soon as possible.

Nellie Baker was my fathers aunt. I am trying to locate where she is buried. I am very new to this tracing family history. Thanks, Alvin Baker

RE: George V O'Bryan 107072750 and Erna O'Bryan
You are welcome. Don't remember if I submited the following info to you (I did send it to the person who had requested the photo but the request remains for Forest Lawn Long Beach).

I confirmed that George V. O'Bryan is in fact buried at Inglewood Park Cemetery and NOT at Forest Lawn Long Beach. He is buried in the Hansen Family Plot, Grave #3, Lot 199, Iona Plot on 11/9/1935. This plot has 12 graves and only 4 people interred there. George does NOT have a marker on his grave.

Erna O'Bryan (his wife ?) is not buried at Forest Lawn Long Beach OR at Inglewood Park Cemetery. Sorry cannot locate her. You might check her Death Certificate to find where her final resting place is.

FYI - don't know if the O'Bryans were Catholic, but there is All Soul's Catholic Cemetery in Long Beach (directly across the street from Forest Lawn Long Beach). And I see by the OBIT that Dilday's mortuary handled the funeral/burial. They are a local Long Beach mortuary - just a thought.

Calvary Cemetery in Louisville
I saw all of your photo requests at Calvary in Louisville. This is a massive cemetery so finding anyone without the plot location will be impossible. If you call the Catholic Cemeteries office at (502) 451-7710, they can give you the plot information. Send it to me and I'll look for them.

Luckily some cemetery lists explained some abbreviations. I've since seen an alternative, but it essentially means the same thing:
SSW="same stone with" or "shares stone with." And I think in some newer cemeteries where all the markers are flat bronze ones instead of actual stones you might find SMW (or s/m/w).

Catherine Drew in Westview
I see your request for a photo on findagrave for Westview Cemetery. I am familiar with that cemetery and would be happy to look for you. Would you please call the cemetery office at 404-755-6611 to find out the section and lot numbers for your request? The office is reluctant to give me that information and in fact has threatened to charge me for it. They do however give it easily to relatives. The cemetery is massive and that section/lot information will help me narrow the search.
