Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love genealogy and am attempting to locate and link all of our family members and any others that I come across on Also tryng to add photos, vital records, census records and any other family photos that someone might enjoy.

I would like to thank all the people that have put my family on findagrave and have been kind enough to transfer my family memorials to me for management. Corrections are welcomed. Please use the edit tab on the memorial for suggestions.

If you copy pictures, markers or obituaries, etc. from my memorials, it is much appreciated and expected to include my memorial and findagrave name and number as the source.

"The Chosen"

We are the chosen. In each family there is one (or more) who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again. To tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe. All tribes (hopefully) have at least one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: Tell our story. So, we do. In finding them, we somehow find ourselves.

Cynthia Gallagher
Sacramento Hospital Cemetary & Charles Hinckley
Thank you for following through with information about the remains of Charles Hinckley (i.e., Charles Briggs Hinckley) (1865-1926). The UC Davis Medical Center moved the Sac Hospital plots in 1973 to St. Mary's Carholic Cemetary. Charles is my G Grandfather; therefore, I must search those grounds, which coincidentally are located nearby.

Charles H and Ida M. Forman
Me: New name/account, but 8 year Find A Grave member.
Cemetery office records show in exact plot location these unnamed Mother and Father markers to be Charles and Ida Mary Forman. (Records also show her name as Ida M. Forman).
Plot: Block J, Lot 55.

RE: john gallagher
The cemetery does not allow individual markers in the poor section because there are several people buried in each grave.
They are in the process of "fixing up" that section and I hope they put the row markers back so that people are able to guesstimate where their love ones are located.
You would have to call the office for the actual grave site.
That picture is all I can do for now.

RE: Simon Palmer
Your very welcome. Now this poses a question for me. Are you related to this Simon Palmer? My family name is Palmer also. I need to do some research.

Fayette Manchester photo request
Hi Barbara,
I was excited to see a request that I thought I would be to fulfill. However, after posting all the photos I thought were correct, I found another Find a Grave for Fayette Jones Manchester with much more to back it up:

Find a Grave # 33556682, Fayette Jones Manchester.

In short, the marker to Fayette's south is that of James DeVoe, husband of Samantha Manchester, daughter of Fayette Jones Manchester.

So I removed the photographs and notes that I had posted.

Unfortunately there is no other known headstone for another Fayette Manchester in Lake County.

Sorry for the confusion and I hope you connect the dots in this case. I thought for sure there would be only ONE Fayette Manchester. Silly me.
