Bio and Links
Bio Photo Single mother of two sons ~ 1 has 2 legs the other has 4.

Spent my adult life working in customer service and as a caregiver to terminally ill friends and family. I have watched dementia and Alzheimers destroy memories that can never be recovered. It is for that reason I feel that each and every memorial should include as much information as possible. I have been told that this site is merely a database for locations of graves. And it is my opinion that if that were true we wouldn't be posting flowers & messages. We wouldn't be adding photos and bios. We would have nothing more than John Smith row 4 plot 7 Sunny Acres Cemetery.

~~~~~ABOUT PHOTOS~~~~~

Most of my memorials are created from grave photos. I search the site before I create the memorial. If I find that I have created a memorial and subsequently find that it is a duplicate of a BU memorial I send an Edit to the contributor advising them of the grave location and that I have a photo of the grave. If the location is added to the memorial I will post the grave photo and delete the memorial I created.

If the contributor does not respond or update the location within 30 days then I will keep my memorial and it's photo in place. As per the site guidelines the contributor is supposed to update the location within 30 days of creating it.

If I have posted a picture of a grave marker it is a picture that I have taken myself. I place no monetary value on these photos. I took the pictures to create or complete memorials and provide photo documentation of the grave site. If family or friends would like a copy of the grave site photos they are welcome to them.

RE: Biorn and Welge Photos
Thank you so much for photographing and posting! There is something almost settling about having them documented on this site.

I had forgotten that my cousin Michael was buried at that same cemetery! Thank you for transferring it to me so I can add information. His brother Glenn died this summer. I can do a memorial for him (different cemetery). I'll have to see if I can get photographs of them to add to their memorials.

Can you also transfer a couple of other memorials at that cemetery? 129012656, Joshua Steven Lynch (my cousin Gordon's baby) and 13053564A, Alathea Faulk (cousin Diane's baby). Both of these babies died from heart problems and very close together.

Were you able to find my cousin Susan Lynch(or Altop)? She should have been by my grandparents. (Maybe there is no marker.)

Della Hanlon at Sacramento County Cemetery
Hi Mary, thanks for your report on Della Hanlon's marker--or lack thereof! I am just trying to establish once and for all whether it's "Hanlon" or "Hanlan". Would you have any way to know that, from your knowledge of the cemetery and its records?
Thanks for all you do for F-A-G!

MaryK4d4 re: Wm M Wilson
Thank you very much MaryK4d4 for the photo of the stone with William's name.

Is this Wm M Wilson for sure? I don't see the middle initial.
Are there any burial records available to relatives from the State of California?

I'm most grateful; I guess with such a common name, I'm just wondering if there is more than one Wm Wilson buried there?

Thanking you again

William Wilson (1891-1957)
He is listed on the Sacramento City Burial log (which can be accessed on the main page of the Sac City Cemetery page). He is on Page 42 (of the W section), the second name down: listed is his name, dates, Section 162 (which is one of the Veteran's Sections) and with the letter V for Veteran. The photo is a general perspective photo of the Veteran's section (161, 162,163). Although I've walked the entire Sac City Cemetery, including the veteran's section, and taken quite a few photos there, I did not get a photo of his marker. Hope this helps answer the inquiry.

Hi Mary,
I sent a second request for III to change the cemetery to Sac City. I hope you also sent a request. Maybe between the two of us, the cemetery will be changed. Lin

RE: 123563795 Robinson
Yes, you're right. The plot information is from the City Cemetery and the City Cemetery records also have Wayne Robinson. I'm assuming you're just asking if I took the photo in the City Cemetery. I did since I have not been to the County Cemetery. Unfortunately, it is not my memorial but I'll request that the owner to change the cemetery. It might help if you do also. Thanks for the catch. Wish I had caught it when I took the photo.

Thank you so much for the cemetery update and the very nice headstone photo for this memorial page. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

Thank You!
Thank you for taking the photo of the community grave. I didn't know for sure that John Gmeiner was buried there until your photo posted!

RE: 28400649 Photos
I tried to look up the memorial # #34244144) and the name, and he is not in Gilliam or in Green Valley cemeteries.
please let me know if I need to do anything for you.

Really LIKED your comments about moving graves for a new hwy, byway, strip mall, etc!! They do that plenty here in SO CAL. Unfortunately they call it "Progress" and then call the sites Defunct, so go figure, as I wish it would Stop also. Happy Graving! m
