Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been collecting family stories for many years and am finally at a place where the threads of the quilt have come together; ready for assembly and display. Honored by my oft' times 'crazy' family, I continue chasing 'white rabbits' and have made more than one error in my conclusions. I ask only that people let me know if a perceived error is discovered. I am always pleased to correct family records. It is as important for me as I trust it is for each of you.


I decline to give permission to use my photos for resale, for profit, or to upload to a different web site.


I will happily transfer ownership of memorials to family members provided the memorial is unrelated to my own genealogy research.

*** PLEASE send any requests for edits or transfers from the edit link on the memorial you want me to look at. Remember to include your F.A.G. member number. ***

Thank you for your understanding.

RE: Arthur Marion Elam
When Mary and I went to the Museum at the Fair Grounds there was only a list of internments. I never remember Mom and Dad ever saying anything about the grave being moved. Perhaps your Dad has some memory.

Arthur Marion Elam
I have Arthur's Death Cert and he died of Bronchial pneumonia and Acute Enteritis. He was buried at the Smith Flat Cemetery on 4/8/1948. You are correct that there is no marker. That cemetery went through several upheavals including the construction of the Freeway. I have no idea what happened to the original marker. I am not opposed to helping with the placement of a marker. Perhaps we could all chip in.

Mom and Dad's FAG memorials

Have left some family connections on both sites for you to approve. Trying to put all the families that I have together.
So that there is a link to siblings, parents and spouses.

RE: bradfords
Thank you for your prompt response, I am very interested in the Bradford/Miller/Ohio connection you spoke of. I do not use Ancestry. I am searching for Lydia Bradfords
grave and date of death. I believe that she
died before her second husband, John F Bradford (1906) The 1900 census said he was a widower. I am also interested in seeing if there are other descendants. I have not found any yet. She had 1 son with her first husband, Thomas Miller, I would also like to find his grave. I think he died in 1869 or so in Missouri. The family came from Brown County, Ohio around 1868. I descend from the son of Lydia and Thomas. Lydia had several other children with John Bradford. Can find no traces of some of them. Would love to know. thanks Donna

My name is Donna Zeller. I am researching
my great great grandmother, Lydia Jane Bradford, she was born around 1845-1850, in Ohio, she married Thomas Miller, he died, around 1869, and she married John Fletcher Bradford, he (bradford) is buried at Shafer Cemetery, Texas county, Mo. I wish to find her, and have had no success. They had several children, I can't find any descendants of her other than my family. It would be great to find out what happened to her. I am a descendant of Lydia and husband number 1. They had a son named Charles E. Miller. Any info you may have would be greatly appreciated. I believe in 1900 census John is listed as a widower. Can you help?

Olivet requests
this is an easy cemetery to do photos at.
I will be happy to go out and take photos for you but you need to call the office to get the grave location.
post to the memorial and send me a message and I will get it done.

I transferred the memorial to Frank and Mattie Green to you. I have a lot of information on the Bolt's and would be glad to share with you. My Grandmother was a Bolt and told me some of her family was Cherokee but I have never been able to find any Native Americans in her family. My email is

RE: Benjamin Trobaugh Roos

I don't know what the name change is about but I had Benjamin as a son of John Trobaugh from the census and other sources I don't recall at this time. His brother's obit (see 50884258) mentions brother Benjamin Ross living in CA. Must mean ROOS.

RE: Kenneth E Green
Happy to help. It was one in my stock pile of pictures I had already taken a while back. When I go I try to take a bunch in case somebody requests them, I have them available. I know how much I appreciate others who fill my requests and a quick response is always a special nice. :)
