Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Omaha Nebraska in 1940, and relocated to Monterey California in 1959 with the U. S Navy where I still live today. In 1962 I married Carolyn of Monterey, a seven generation native Californian, and we have two daughters. I retired from a local utility company in 1993, and have operated my own business since 1994. I have been pursuing both mine and my wife's ancestors for the past 20 years. In that time I have located over 17,000 family members to which we are related. I currently do volunteer geneaolgy research in CA & OH counties.

RE: Lisle Williams Transfer
Thank you! That would be very nice to have the obits, and I knew his children were with a wife previous to Olive, and that her first name was Margaret, but I couldn't find a maiden name, so thank you for that, big help!

Lisle M Williams
Hi! Thank you so much for adding this memorial. I just wanted to say that there is another memorial created for Lisle Williams in the San Carlos Cemetery in Monterey County. It's the same man, same birth and death dates, and you both have a photo of the same headstone. Could you please check to make sure you have Lisle Williams in the correct cemetery and that yours is not the duplicate?

I wrote the other person with the other Lisle Williams memorial to ask him to check also.

I was wanting to connect Mr. Williams to the memorials of his parents who are buried in San Jose.

Thank you for your time,

Veronica J

You are entirely welcome for the transfer. I am always glad when someone 'claims' one of my memorials as a friend or relative. Have a great day.

Hi Gary....I thank you for creating the memorial of my great grandfather, Leopold Ferdinand Cosky's wife, Ethel L. Cosky! If you would, could you please transfer her memorial to me? I have many of my family members to link to her and would like her memorial to be in our family. Her Find A Grave Memorial #117275359. Many thanks!
