Bio and Links
Bio Photo Greetings, fellow Find a Graver! Thanks for your support of this site by your hard work posting, editing, adding photos AND using Find a Grave! Many members have helped me make connections and knowing I have helped someone brings a bit of joy to my heart.

Have a question about a memorial or need help finding info? Contact me using the EDIT button and click "suggest any other correction or addition" (quickest way and private) or leave a public message.

Am related to maybe 80% of the ones I've posted and may have more info. I leave flowers when I visit a memorial while doing research & during the past few months, have been trying to remember to add my relationship in the notes...

Questions and/or corrections are welcome. If I've made an error...let me know, politely. If I ask the source of info, don't be offended, I want to add the source to my database. (To err is human and I'm a little more human than most...)

Feel absolutely FREE to use the tombstone photos I have taken!!


Please ask before using personal/family photos that I own/have taken. I will most likely allow it and have yet to refuse a request. I only ask proper attribution is given, i.e. "posted by Cherie in OC on Find A Grave" and that it's not on a site where someone has to pay to see it. I ask for attribution in case someone would like more info.

Someone asked why I post someone had committed suicide. This subject is difficult. I lost two close family members to suicide. Many families refuse to talk about this. Talking about it BEFORE it gets to that stage is what's most important to try to help prevent it. This is also why I have no problem posting death certificates. Besides "family history" family medical history is very important. I have also been working with a gen society to post the DCs.

Life is too short to be a stick in the mud. Be that little singing bird on the sunny end of the stick!

Byron Miller
Hi Cherie,

Are you related to the family? Byron's correct birth date is 19 Feb 1904, we have proof of that as I'm sure you do. Because of a sensitive family issue he changed his birth date and they always kept it that way. Byron is Bob's grandfather and doesn't want too much info given out about it.

Lorenzo Finout
Do you happen to know Betty Jane Finout from Michigan? Her husband is Lorenzo Finout's descendent: Guy E Finout Jr. She is doing her family history. I'm trying to help her with the family tree. We saw your flower on Lorenzo's memorial page!! Hope to hear from you.

You wouldn't happen to know where she is actually buried, I have called all over and thought she would be where her brother is but I can't find her grave at all, I even called who took care of the funeral and they never got back to me, just thought maybe you might know

Thank you for the help with her connections.
As a non-relative this can take ages for me to sort out for a very large family like the Howlands.
You've help me link several of my "orphans" in the past and I do appreciate it.

David Hilton
Hi Cherie,

I've removed the memorial that i created for David Hilton. No big deal. Not sure how that happened. My picture is on both. Maybe i meant to remove mine long ago because i see the other has my name mentioned in it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention....
