RE: Richard Stauff
Aww... it sounds like something may be happening there. If you would not mind letting him know I would love to take responsibility for the Watsonville Pioneer cemetery if he would like. It is a long story but I am finally at long last being allowed to research that side of the family. Most of my other lines go back to the 1400s but I am still struggling in the 1800s with my moms line. I just started working on it last year. And I am finding that I am related to half of that cemetery. I took a few random pictures at graves that interested me as I was being rushed along and I ended up being related to everyone I took with the exception of one. I have already asked for Carrie Tindall because I thought he was gone and she is my Ggrandmother. If he wants to release responsibility to me my number is (#48469371) but as you are photographing them you might be a likely caretaker too.

RE: Watsonville Cemetery
Okay I just tried to send him an edit (still waiting on several I put through some time ago) and it told me his account is inactive and I cannot put the requests in anymore. Most of these records are relatives of mine; many fall into the 4 generation rule, so I put in a request to the website to have his Watsonville Cemetery records transferred over to me. We will see what happens. It would be nice to see these records tied together with all of your photographs would be amazing.
Oh and I should thank you. Your photo helped me solve the mystery of my Enoch and Enock Tindall. I had Enoch coming up and Enock as the son of his father. I had some information on each but nothing that tied together. Your photo helped to prove that they are both the same person. Thank you. His is a sad story so I am glad I have him connected in right

RE: Watsonville Cemetery
Okay, I guess I will put in a request for the records that I have edits pending for. Maybe if he has left they will transfer over. Very strange

Hi! Pictures are looking great. I have made some of the connections. Richard Stauff maintains most of them. I see you have had contact with him, but when I try to look up his profile it says there is nothing there. Do you know if he is still around? Or has he deleted his account? (Sorry to bother you with this. I just do not know what the procedure is if someone leaves Find A Grave and how all the profiles they have are taken care of)

RE: Baby Phillips #120610155
That makes sense. Well at least you were able to find it. Thank you so much

Do you keep records of where the stones were? We searched with the office staff for about 30 minutes and could not find this stone. Was it in section 1?

RE: Watsonville Pioneer Cemetery
Actually my family still has part of the family homestead above Corralitos but I live in Southern California now. I was up visiting my mom and we made a trip over to get a few photographs. I usually come up once a year. I was disappointed to see the cemetery in such bad shape and it was only my second time photographing (well first since the first cemetery refused to allow me to take photographs). I am so glad you are working in there. My mom had very limited time so we were really rushing. I will try to add the family connections from where I am. And as for my 40 years a lot of that was watching my Dad research in libraries while I just spun the microfilm never finding anything, but I am proud to say that I have completed my 6 generations and found my first connection to Charlemagne within the last year and I am quickly closing in on my seventh generation (a few lines go back much further). I will load the photos I took and set up the pages and then I will focus on the family ties and sort through the family pictures I got on that visit too. Thank you so much for all your work I have wanted to do it but it is just so far (cemeteries around me are all finished)

Also, your Jane Beer is Catherine Jane (Caudill) Beer Find A Grave# 118086643. Your picture picks up a lot more of the detail than my picture did if you do not mind posting it to the other record as well

Looks like I missed you by a few days. I was there photographing my family plots to add here and as I am going through to add them I see you added them just a couple of weeks ago. Are you any relation to the Tindall line? I see you have been a genealogist for 20 years so if you are I would love to chat a little with you.
