RE: Cousins?
Okay, but where did your Bellows line come from. My husband's mother was born in Missouri, where the Bellows had been for a couple of generations. They had come from the New England states. My husband has recently found he is related to a Revolutionary War Bellows. Good stuff. He and I have been doing family history research for about 45 years, so if you are interested, email him at
Good work and thank you!

Thank you so very much for honoring Daniel, especially the Bio on his life, and transferring it to me!

Hey, my husband, Jeff Cullison, was born in Santa Monica (like me) and raised in Palos Verdes! You posted information about his grandmother, Dorothy May MacMillan Bellows. Are you related to this Bellows family. He has a LOT of information on the Bellows. His mother was Barbara Bellows Cullison, buried near her mother Dorothy May. Anyway, let me know if you would like some help with your Bellows research.

Bonnie Brown
Bonnie is buried in the same grave as her mother, Okla Marie Branch. The headstone only shows her mother's name.

Jean Rogers Grube
I am curious to know how you know that the ashes of Jean Rogers Grube were scattered over the Sequoia along with her husband, Dr. John Grube. Plus where did you get Jean's picture from?

RE:Berclaz tombstones
You have taken pictures for me of the 4 Berclaz tombstones in the Cemetery and I would like to use them on my family tree in ancestry. I would give you credit if you want your name on them. If you don't I can just put the initials on them. Thank you Jean

RE: Baileys
I know what you mean. I think people must have the new mobile app for Find A Grave and pick up messages constantly! I hardly get a chance to go to Green Hills anymore, which is a shame because I like that cemetery even though it is farther from home. I'm happy for you that work has picked up; that is always good news.

Take care,

Hi Jamie! I was thinking about you today; I was at Hillside and I wondered why I didn't see your name on claimed photo requests anymore. Have you stopped doing them?

Anyway, regarding the Baileys at Inglewood. Rose Shelton McDaniel is buried next to them and it looks like she might be LaVinia's mother. I created a memorial for you, if you'd like to check it out.
