Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing family history research since about 1971. Although I have worked on all my lines, I have especially focused on the extended Harlan family who were members of the Harlan Party that traveled to California by wagon in 1846. My "family" database is available for free through the World Connect Project at

I believe that Find-A-Grave is a wonderful collaborative tool to share and improve family history information. Therefore, I am happy to consider requests for the transfer of memorials I have added.

RE: Pratt
Glad to help out. Do you want me to find their obits for you?

I noticed that a few years back, you may have been looking for some Pratts in Rosedale cemetery in Illinois.
I just came across some old obits and there was one for Hazel L. (Pratt) Brodd - Daughter of Earl and Anna Pratt.
I created a memorial for her in Rosedale.
I am planning on going up to Rosedale next week (weather permitting) to take some photos.
I was just wondering if you would like me to try to find her headstone and get a picture of it.
Or if you would like a copy of the obit, I will be more than happy to e-mail it to you.

Steve thank you for your contributions to Find A Grave. You are helping so many people find their extended families and at the same time you are making it possible for people like me (because of age and health who can no longer visit cemeteries) be able to see their families' markers and gravesites. Thank you. I hope you won't mind my making copies of these photos for my family files on Ancestry and Family Tree Maker. I am trying very hard to get as much of my family history as I can on my files for my descendants and others connected to these same families to see their heritage. I have been on this journey since the 80's and in all that time have had a tremendous amount of help. Would you believe only two people our of over 200 have been less than gracious in extending help.
May God bless you in your endeavors to help other people.

Steve, thank you so much for your service to others through your work with Find A Grave. It especially means a lot to me because I can no longer visit cemeteries as I once did because of age and health. I too have been working on my family genealogy for many long years. I now am trying desperately to get as much as I can on Ancestry and Family Tree Maker so that my descendants and others may know their heritage. I hope you won't mind my using copies of your photos for my family files. God bless you in your work and may you continue to help others for many years to come.

Thank You So Much
I can't thank you enough for the speedy transfer of the memorial for my first cousin, Stowe Wehunt, in Henderson County, North Carolina.
Thank you for creating his memorial, and for all that you continue to do.

Re. Memorial No.76523549
I found on the Nevada Marriage Index 1951-2005 a Marian E. Garbrecht (Vester) m. James E Dixon 10 Feb 1961. California Divorce Index 1966-1984 shows that Jack E. Gibson divorced Marian E. Vester on Sep 1976.
This is a reply to your note on the Jack E Gibson memorial.

cemetery cross-reference - Big Valley
I don't know how Find a Grave identifies cemeteries that have used more than one name. Big Valley Cemetery was also known as Valley Bethel Cemetery, and some of the graves were recorded under that name in printed materials. Currently there are two records in this database for that cemetery, based on publications.

Can you help create a cross-reference for Valley Bethel to Big Valley, or pass this on to someone who can? Thank you.
