Bio and Links
Bio Photo Unless I have some way to contact you to verify, I won't make changes to memorial pages.

I got involved with genealogy in 1982 when my parents were celebrating their 50th anniversary and wanted a family reunion campout with cousins they hadn't seen for many years. Mother's father was one of 13 children who had been close while growing up, but had drifted apart. My job was to "connect the dots" as to how we were related. As many of you know, it has exploded from there.

I have been a Find a Grave member for several years, but have recently become involved in picture taking. When I get a request, I can't just take that picture, but surrounding ones.
Thank you to those who have taken pictures for me. Let me know if I can help you.
Family names I'm working with are Wallace, Isenberg, Merrell(Merrill), Berry, Scheuffele, Crowley as well as some others.

Memorial for Earl Frederick Vail
Regarding my previous message, I have learned that I should have also given you my contributor ID, which seems to be 48179774. It would mean a great deal to have the management of Dad's grave transferred over to me. shirleyvail71@gmail.com Memorial # provided in previous message left 8-30-14 Thank you so much.

Earl Frederick Vail 1910-1985
This man was my father. My parents suffered a bitter divorce in 1951, I had almost no contact with Dad, through Mom, from then on. I finally found his death certificate and was going to try to find his grave via that. But in doing a general search in Ancestry.com, today, 8-30-2014, I found Dad's grave at last. I sat and cried for awhile. It has been a long journey. We have/had genetic linked medical problems, which I have also just learned about in the last few years. I completely understand now why thing went so wrong for my parents and him because I suffer the same problems. If possible, would you please transfer ownership of his grave to me? I would be most grateful. I'm 71 and truly feel like I have reached the end of a very long journey and am at peace at last. Shirley Jean Vail, e-mail ShirleyVail71@gmail.com. Memorial #87797278. If you were related to him in some way, I would love to know about it, as I know zero about his life after the divorce.

Memorial #87667988. This man is my 4th cousin and you have him listed as the spouse of Naomi Blodgett, she is his mother, not his spouse. His father is also Merwin A. Younger, he was born 1901 and died 1970. I have not found where he is buried. Merwin A., Jr. married Susan Reamer about 1946. Merwin A. Younger, Sr. and Naomi both died in Sacramento County, but I have not located their graves.

You can email me at wilma.norton@outlook.com. My Find A Grave ID is 46914770.

William & Jane Gordon Photos
Hello, Corky,
William Young and Jane Phelps Gordon were my great grandparents. I would like very much to get your permission to add your lovely photos of their headstone and family plot to our ancestry.com family tree. If it is alright with you, can you please tell me, also, how to go about it? This is my first such request, and I'm not sure what to do. Thank you!
