Bio and Links
Bio Photo These pages include listings of interments at Grand View Memorial Park in Glendale, CA.

You can read about some of the history and challenges at Grand View at

Initial records available for upload to FindAGrave contained only names and plot locations. Updating birth/death dates continue to be done based on inquiries, photo requests, and ongoing research. >99% of all Grand View interments have been added as of 12/31/2010.

Updates to information or transfers to direct family members will happily be made, once the person/page is confirmed to be correctly identified. Since the original list used to upload did not have birth/death dates, transfers can only be made once those dates have been confirmed. If you are requesting transfer of a page that has not yet been updated, please provide the dates you believe are correct with your request. Those dates will then be cross-checked against Lot Sheets for interment date consistency, as well as other online records.

To provide information or request a transfer, please use the "Suggest A Correction (SAC)" link, located on the Edit Tab (upper right corner) of the page in question.

NOTE: By using the new tools to add or edit information for the following items will ensure faster edits!

* Birth/death date, birth/death place
* Relationship (parent and spouse links)
* Name

Using the "Suggest other Corrections" option will send an email message that includes links to both the memorial page as well as your Contributor ID so there will be no errors in updating or transferring the correct page. Don't forget to specify your relationship!

In fairness to those who may have closer ties to a memorial, transfer requests for pages that are outside FAQ Guidelines for required transfers will be considered on an individual basis.

RE: Forrest & Wanita Brewer
Thank you for your information about Wanita and Forrest. I am glad that Wanita (or Juanita) now has a listing. I am only distantly related to them, so I would prefer not to be the editor of their pages.

George F Butcher
Looking for George F Butcher h/o Willie Virginia Amos Butcher Memorial#47483705. My research shows he was born Oct 28 1899 and passed Mar 1 1971 and was buried in Grand View Memorial Park, do you have any decimation of this? Your help would be very appreciated.

RE: Isaiah Lynn Klingensmith
How disappointing. There are Patriots that served our nation that we may never know the burial location and yet to refuse a link because a burial was not established makes no sense to me and doesn't help towards preservation. But rules are rules. I will make a non burial memorial when reasons such as cemetery records being destroyed by fire and all my resources indicate we may never know the burial. These memorials are just as important as those who have burial information. just for the sake of being recognized as existing.
By doing so it also opens the memorial up to other descendants that may have more information on the family.

#47537796 I have requested a link for Isiah to parents twice and both times declined. You mention them in biography but refuse to link them so they can be clickable on the memorial page just like the spouse and child are. I would greatly appreciate it if you can link the parents Seth Klingensmith 151425998 and Sarah Steelsmith Klingensmith 151426044. By doing so it will connect him to his siblings and further generations.

Thanks for adding relationship links. If our efforts help a future researcher, it's all worth it!

RE: Jack Davison #47485440 Edward C Copeland
Thanks for the clarification. I wondered at finding what I thought to be a cemetery site for my former neighbor and fellow Naval Academy grad, as his obituary says that he was cremated by the Neptune Society, which I understand scatters ashes at sea. "Sdda" is a total stranger to me.

I did find an obituary and submitted it as additional information. I submitted a photo trquest but the Find A Grave response says that there are no photo volunteers in your neighborhood. I hope that it reaches you since you say that you take photos. I am asking Ed's USNA classmates and the Alumni Association for a scan of his 1954 Lucky Bag photo.

I got his dates from the SS Death Index, but submitted before I could enterhis death place as San Jose,Santa Clara County, California. I am still looking for his birth plsce and his obituary as a source for details. I am asking his USNA classmates for their help.
