Bio and Links
In most cases, memorials I have created are either for a direct relation, the spouse of a relation, or the parent(s) of that spouse. There are some exceptions, feel free to ask if you have questions.

I was born and raised in western New York, just outside of Buffalo. I have been tracing my family history since 1988. I have a lot of ancestry in NY and the New England states; Canada, the United Kingdom, and Germany. I have been a resident of San Diego, CA since 1999.

Some family names that I am interested in:
Spencer, Bradley, Bates, Dutton, Alderman, Stewart, Rogers, Fladie, Munger, Adams, Jordan, Reuter, Griffin, Dennison, Carl.

I am also the creator and keeper of the Genweb page for the town of Middlebury, Wyoming co, NY.

RE: Hollywood Forever photo request - Reuben Littlefield
Hey D. R.,

I am sorry about the unconventionality of this request. I now see a memorial for the same person also listed in Glendale's Forest Lawn, photographed with relatives there (link-edits still pending) with plot Victory:1-392 #1-6.

It is also duplicated there, with a name typo, no dates, no photo, but the same plot. I have sent a delete request email to the contributor.

Do these two cemeteries abutt or overlap? I will call the cemetery later in the day for details on its location.

Reuben's daughter Mildred has a father-in-law, Gideon Rowell, same lot as her father, also has a memorial back east at Walnut Grove in Danvers MA. I find nothing online at ancestry for him, so I suspect he was buried in CA, although his wife was probably buried here, so I am unsure. Any suggestions on figuring this out?

Anyway, I'll call Forever today and see if I can get a plot.

I also just sent an email to Romper... who actually added the other cemetery's records too, interestingly.

RE: Hollywood Forever photo request - Charles Polk
Charles and Helen Polk are in Section 6, Lot 604. The person who created Charles's memorial had him listed in Garden of Memory, which is perhaps the same as Section 6. Thanks! -Joe

RE: Hollywood Forever photo request - Lincoln
Thank you so much for locating her burial site for me, and then taking the photo. I appreciate the info on where she would be, though it is unmarked. That way it can be located by myself and others. (I added your note to her page). She is my gr-gr-grandmother. Many thanks!

RE: Hollywood Forever photo request - Bullock
I talked to a woman last week who said to give her a couple of days. No return call from CAL.

So I called today. The lady (while I was on hold) got the info for me. She said "Sec 13, Lot 850" and said you would need to come into the office to get a map (and I believe she added "That's the way we do it") Seems like me calling them twice won't do it...will you check and see what is going on?

Thanks for all the effort.

TTFN Margaret

Thank you so much. She is my direct line on my Mom's side, so it will be nice to have her page complete with a photo. I appreciate it.
