Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a late bloomer as far as genealogy goes. I didn't start researching until 2009. So I'm still learning. My interest in Genealogy started with a visit to my niece's family tree. Then I was hooked. There was so much I didn't know about my family and a lot I still don't know. My family research includes the Smith, Pearce, Morgan, Riley, Fletcher and I think maybe the Peppers and Kincheloe.

RE: McKee
I'm surprised that Bernita McKee Young has not requested them.
If you want to transfer them to me, I'll not stop you.
I've found that when you have a short biography on the find-a-grave, you know whether of not you've found the right one.
Can't believe how many have the same names and the same birthdays.
I've only been doing this stuff a couple of months. It started out as just merging 2 lists together and then it became fun and now it's addicting.
Appreciate your assistance.

RE: Orben Yocum
You are so welcome. If you go to family they have a picture of the wedding certificate and more details on there. Like they were married at the Allen home and C.W. Yocum signs for Orben and they were married in the presence of George Allen and C.W. Yocum. is great and its also free. I use them and together.

Stephen H. Waldon
I have visited the office of Union Cemetery twice now to search for Steve, and they have no record of him at all, including in their cremation records. There is a Waldon family buried at Union, but Stephen seems to have no relationship to them. I will continue to search for him - I have checked with a couple local cemeteries to see if he was buried there with no luck. I will keep looking.

RE: John A Pearce #124991848
I have checked with the cemetery and I am sorry to say that your aunt and uncle are not buried in Palo Verde Cemetery. I would try Coachella cemetery. If they died in Indio that would likely be the place.
Sorry I couldn't help more.
Good luck

RE: Troy Chatman
Yes, Lois. My great-grandfather is buried there in Shafter and they don't even have him listed. Even though he has a marker. His name is Ross Greenwood Chatman. He has a marker there. I wonder why they don't have the people listed that just has those small markers like for unmarked graves listed on there site? Who is doing the grave listing I wonder.

Troy Chatman
You said there was a problem with getting a photo of Troy Chatman's grave? They said there was no record of him being buried there right? Well, then why is his memorial on their site under number #47160965. Troy Lane Chatman. He was born 12/12/1966 to 3/18/2011. If you check the Shafter Memorial Park site you will see it yourself. That makes me wonder how well they keep their records.

Horace Manley memorial
I made the additions to his memorial that you sent me.
Since you're a family member of his, would you like me to transfer his memorial to you? It wouldn't be a problem to do it if you'd like. All I would need is your Find A Grave number.
