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.

Emmett Wilhite - 88140561
Corky,

I am new to Find a grave. I found my uncle Emmett and noticed no information on his site. I filled in his Birth and Death information and thank you so much for taking care of that.

Is there any way to put in his parents names and dates. They are not in Find A Grave system.

Father: Charles Alexander Wilhite 1868-1935
Mother: Della May Casey 1878-1970

He is one of 14 children. He was a sheep herder in Idaho when he died.

My Mother was his sister: Jennie Wilhite Martin.

Thank you so much.
Carolyn Martin Douglas

Blakeway - Capay Cemetery
Hi, Corky. The Blakeways are my mother's father's family. I went to the Capay Cemetery a couple of times last year but was unable to locate any of the Blakeway graves featured here on the website. I believe you photographed a few of them. If you recall, could you please narrow my search by telling me which part of the cemetery to look in?

Thank you very much,
Kurt

Earle Wilson
Memorial # 87673264

I think that is my grandfather Earle A Wilson (not H)
My uncle Earle A Wilson (Memorial # 87673263) is his son.
A recent addition to the cemetery is my grandmother
(memorial ## 139639700)

Could you please change the H to an A and add references to spouse and son?

Thanks,
Kim

Hi. I hope you don't mind if I send you this additional obit information - it predates your cited obituary by 1 day. I just completed an academic research project and Mrs. Parmenter's obituary was captured during my work. Because of copyright issues, I am unable to send a full transcript.
