Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got seriously involved in my geneology when my father passed in March 2009. I am still a newbee to all of this but I am trying hard and making many new friends traversing the many avenues of research.

I have many, many ancestors in Mower Co, Goodhue Co, and Olmsted Co, Minnesota; Charleston, S.C.; the state of Iowa and Ohio. I am trying to advance my family research in the state of Pennsylvania & Massachusetts but the going is very slow.

Living in Southern California I have to rely on others for alot of my information for which I am eternally greatful.

Surnames : Gee, Rupe, Shaw, Leason, Eggleston, Kraft, Wohlers, Hawkins, Ryan, Cunningham.

Any photo taken and posted by myself is free to use. No need to ask for permission to reuse nor is acknowledgment required to reuse. Once anything hits the internet it is out in the world much like our journey thru life and it is just as hard to control. So feel free to enhance your family trees and records with what I have.

RE: Harry Fallon
Yes, the inscription book says he is there but when I look where the grave is supposed to be he isn't there. It is supposedly in the same row with the Fallon grave photo you posted but on the south side of the cemetery. Inscriptions were read in 1979 so maybe there was something there right after he was buried but not now? It is a mystery.

RE: Aleta Myers
Dear Laura: Yes, I have Aleta's location from the day I claimed your photograph request, but Section 1 is large, so I am waiting for a map with a curb pointer from the cemetery office. On 8/5, I emailed them for several locations, but it can take a few weeks before I hear back because they have a very busy office. There are several others on my list for cemeteries in Eureka and I consolidate to make just one trip. Don't worry, I will find your Aleta! Do you have any idea why she is buried at Sunset Memorial Park and not Ocean View Cemetery with your other two Myerses? Kind regards, BL

RE: Stokes family
You're very welcome. I covered a lot of Stokes over there. Don't think I have all of them yet. Clara Jane Stokes Schultz is my gg grandmother, so I have an affinity for Stokes name.
Have a great day!

Guy and Alta Myers
You are so very welcome for the photographs of Guy and Alta Myers's grave markers. Your loved ones were very easy to find, with the help of the grave locations you had obtained from Ocean View Cemetery. It was a brilliantly sunny day and my yellow Labrador and I enjoyed our time walking amongst the silent residents. Kind regards, Bridey Light

RE: Louis & Kate Eggleston
Ms Hawkins,
I sent a reply to your email address
Didnt see that I could respond direct here,
this is what I sent to your email

Yes, I can take care of Louis and Catherine Anna's memorials on Find A Grave if you would like.

I was very interested to hear from you that George R Eggleston 1806-1886 was your GGG Grandfather....he is mine as well. I have been trying to find where he may have been buried in Hand County, South Dakota, and where his parents may have come from, but have had no luck. I have tried all the usual sources, including the Courthouse in Hand County.
Also, I cannot find burial information on his son George R., Jr. either ( 1834-1878) who died in Iowa County, Iowa.

Do you happen to have any information on George,Sr or George Jr burials and George Sr's parents ?

Thank you so much !

Ron Eggleston
Phoenix, AZ
formerly from St Joseph Mo, where my Great Grandfather Louis H, Grandfather Louis G, and Father Louis J. were from.
