Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been into genealogy for some 50 years and have never lost interest in helping myself and others find their roots. I find it a huge mystery game with many surprises discovered.

TRANSFER REQUESTS: Please!!! follow Find A Grave guidelines-direct relative within four generations (siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents, aunts and uncles).
CORRECTIONS: additions, & family links when asked but no promises if you just send me an email instead of using the edit link. Use the Edit tab at the top right of memorial, then the Suggest A Correction option. You can upload your pictures directly to the memorials, but PLEASE take pride on what you enter. Photos should be carefully composed and submitted with the highest resolution that FAG will accept.

I transferred Alma to you. Do you want Phelps also?

Joshua Hadley (1783-1847)
Thank You for requesting a photo of the stone! Joshua's stone evidently is one of those difficult to read. The Quaker Minutes of Mill Creek Monthly Meeting state this Joshua was 'Bur Mill Creek Mtg. ["Abstracts of the Society of Friends in Indiana", Part 6, page 156.]

I put a note that the stone couldn't be located and added the citation.

I fulfilled your requests for Alma and Frank Crikelair. I also added Alma Kaminski Phelps (probably a daughter), Henry Kaminski & John Phelps who were on the same plot. If you'd like me to transfer them let me know and I will do so.

RE: Curtis P. Drake || Charles Cadman Drake
Howdy Dick! I forgot to add that Ocean View Cemetery and Sunset Memorial Park in Eureka are the largest two, and most common, cemeteries in this area. Blue Lake Cemetery is a smaller cemetery, and it also is under the same administration as OVC and SMP. So, if your guy is anywhere in those three, Don will find them. We are lucky to have such an intelligent and capable man in the cemeteries' wheelhouse! I would also recommend connecting with Thomas Lamar Farnum, Jr., as he is an excellent researcher of the Drake family line, as well as other lines.
Just for fun, if you go to David Henery Drake's memorial and click on the GPS link, then select for 'satellite' view, you will be able to view OVC in an aerial view (and David's exact final resting place). Sunset Memorial Park is ~ .5 mile south, along Highway 101 and you can select any of the memorials on my managed list which has SMP listed to see an aerial view. Kind regards, BL

thanks for trying, at least I know where they are buried. An odd thing, my grandfather was born in Hydesville, CA, Marshall Fell, Ellen Caroline Drake m Howard M Fell and he was their son.

Curtis P. Drake || Charles Cadman Drake
Dear Dick: I did search the area for any other Drake individuals when I took Curtis's photographs, but there were none. However, if you have a death date for Charles Cadman Drake, you might wish to give Ocean View Cemetery's office administrator a call. His name is Don and his office is in the mausoleum building where Curtis is resting. Don's number is (707) 445.3188. I think the office is open M-F 9AM to 5PM, and they also are the caretakers of Sunset Memorial Park, which is about .5 mile south of Ocean View Cemetery.
If you find Charles, please leave me another message on my message board with his location (probably resting within the same mausoleum as Curtis), and I would be happy to take photographs for you the next time I visit Ocean View. I usually go once every two weeks or so. The day I took Curtis's photographs, I was at Ocean View to photograph David Henery Drake, who was the grandfather of a fellow who lives about 2.5 hours inland in Redding, CA. As the crow flies, David Drake is resting outside the Ocean View mausoleum, and only about a 30 second walk from where Curtis is resting. Curtis will be yours in a few minutes; I am glad to have him cared for by family! Kind regards, Bridey Light, Humboldt County, CA

I meant to write that I have created a memorial for Curtis P. Drake, and will transfer it to you if you are family. :) ~ BL

Curtis P. Drake -- Is he from your family line?
Find A Grave Memorial # 126104894. I see the names Drake and Curtis both appear on the memorial # 61719419 which you maintain for Horace H. Drake. I took grave marker photographs and created a memorial for him. Would be glad to transfer to you if you are within Find A Grave's guidelines for family. I was one of the volunteers who searched (unsuccessfully but thoroughly!) for Horace and Harriet Drake's graves in Hydesville, CA. Kind regards, Bridey Light, Humboldt County, CA
