Bio and Links
The descendants of the old settlers, those who cleared the land and first upturned the wild sod to the sun, should see that the doings of those early years are fittingly remembered and recorded.
It was once remarked by a great writer that those who take no interest in the deeds of their ancestors are not likely to do anything worthy to be remembered by their descendants.

Please leave flowers or memorials on my memorials, I believe everyone deserves flowers, and I have a great family. Thank you in advance.
A BIG thank you to those who send histories, death notices, obits and links to add to the memorials. They are wonderful additions.
You may use my pictures and information for your family trees but I do like credit. This is all put on findagrave for your family trees because so many people have helped me with mine. Thank you.

Please read Find A Grave's Transfer Requirements before requesting a transfer "THE FIND A GRAVE GUIDELINES FOR TRANSFERRING MEMORIALS ARE: Spouses, Parents, Brothers and Sisters, Children, Grand-children, Grandparents, and Great-grandparents. Please use the "EDIT" tab to ask for a transfer BUT PLEASE do no ask for a transfer that is not within these guidelines and PLEASE STATE YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO THE DECEASED.
Putting requests on this site you will be ignored, and erased. Ignorance is not bliss it is just embarrassing for you.

For extended family members you can add
Virtual Cemeteries as we have done.

PLEASE USE the "EDIT" TAB ON THE UPPER RIGHT SIDE OF THE MEMORIAL TO SEND CORRECTIONS AND REQUESTS FOR TRANSFERS. Will gladly add any obits and will add links to family members. "

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out On polished, marble stone.
It reaches out to all who care It is too late to mourn.

You did not know that I exist You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our heart contracts and beat a pulse Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled One hundred years ago Spreads out among the ones you left Who would have loved you so.I wonder if you lived and loved,I wonder if you knew That someday I would find this spot, And come to visit you.
~Walter Butler Palmer~

Iris Smith & Leonard Shidler
Hi Barbara,

I came across a picture of Iris and Leonard Shidler taken at Knottsberry Farm on February 17, 1943. I found it with my grandparents' pictures. If you would like me to email it to you let me know.

Findagrave reminder
When a memorial is correctly placed in a cemetery, a duplicate memorial cannot be moved into that cemetery. The first memorial in the correct cemetery is the memorial that is kept. There is a 30 day window to update recent death memorial to their correct disposition. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

George Wyette Martin

You have George linked to a duplicate of his father John Henry Martin. The one you are linked to was created in 2012. The correct memorial was created in 2007 and the memorial number is: 20102868.

I would appreciate it if you would connect George to the correct memorial of his father.

Harriet Bertelmann Bannister #85927758
Would there happen to be gravestones for her & her husband Andrew Tell Bannister? If there are, could you take a pic and post it PLEASE! My reason for this is, Andrew Tell Bannister with same birth & death dates is buried (w/a pic and his father) in Makiki cemetery. His wife Harriet is buried (w/a pic) in Kaahumanu Society Cemetery. Her mother Susan Titcomb Bertelmann is also buried there. Also, Walter James Bannister is not Harriet's son. He is her grandson. His father is Harriet's son Norman Bannister and wife Mary Phillips Bannister that are buried at Valley of The Temples. Do you think we good get this fixed?
Much Mahalos, Gloria
