Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in my Family History for most of my life; My Father's side of the family came primarily from Scotland and England (although many remain there still), with some of them settling in Ontario, Canada, a few on to Michigan, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and many to California. My Mother's maternal side of the family gave us those who came from Germany and settled in Wisconsin; her paternal side gave us the people who came from Scotland and Ireland and settled mostly in Virginia. With time, many found their way across the United States and ended up staying in California, with others remaining in States along the way. Now, my children are researching their Father's side, who are mainly from Ireland, with many who settled in Connecticut. So, as with most people, we are scattered all over the World.

Wallace, Armstrong, Newman, Brown, Jameson, Youell, McCutcheon, Boyd, Hodge, Porterfield, McCreary, Crawford, Callison, Graham, Nelson, Young, Hobson, Stone, Hannagan, Parker, Allan, Ogilvie, Colleby, White, Place, Gilders, Graf, Netcher, Schuster, Schultz, Keller, Debrey, Board, McCann, Phelon, Gregan, Hayes…...

and, of course, all of the families who joined ours by marriages.....Binford, Coffman, Craig, Devenny, Steptoe, Yancey, Glass, Glover, Guerrant, Shiflett, Chewning, Fry, Via, Sitlington, Gorman, Campbell, Dyche, Sherman, Bretschneider, Fassett, Moore, Thompson, Duarte, Correia.....

The more I find, the more there is yet to find.

RE: Pvt Charles Samuel Place
Dear Sandra,
I try to leave "flowers" for every veteran as they all have done so much for our country, especially those we have lost in the wars, which is always so very sad. My dad is a WWII Vet who will be 90 next month, is wheelchair bound and says he is "older than dirt", but I have tried to let him know how much it meant to me that he served in the Army Air Corps in WWII. He was shot down in the South Pacific in 1945, only one of two men who survived and doesn't like to discuss it, but I want him to know how proud I am of him for all he has done. They are all going to be gone much too soon; I try to at least give them & the others from past wars (and wars that came after) acknowledgement for their service for we wouldn't be America without them. I appreciate your kind email. Thanks so much. Take care.
With All Sincerity, Kathie L. Webb Blair, Portland, OR

RE: Lewis L Dyche Headstone Photos
I would be happy to fulfill your request. There is no need for a "Photo requests" I do it to help as others have helped me with my own genealogical pursuits. I have checked my photos and I am not satisfied with what I have. The cemetery is not far I will make a trip and get better photos.

Capt. Alfred Goddin
Hi Diane,

I finally got a reply back from Hollywood concerning Alfred Goddin. They have record of his interment as July 15, 1940.

I'm not sure if they mean his ashes, body, or the erection of the cenotaph?

I'll contact them again to see if they can clarify.

You mentioned that you have more information on him. These Goddins in this section of Hollywood are my cousins. I am very interested in learning what you have.

All the best,
Sandy
P.S.
I also plan to go out there very soon and get a picture of his stone.

Hi Diane, I posted a little better, less blurry photo of her grave marker to your memorial (93437381). With the lovely photos you posted of her and her bio, maybe re-arrange the photos so the the picture I posted is not at the front of her memorial? If you would prefer that I just remove the photo, let me know and I will.

Mary Abbott
That's a great bio! Thank you for sending it to me. I added all of it to her memorial. I'm going to the cemetery in a few weeks and will try to find their headstones.
Thanks again!

Mary Miller Abbott 50071018
Are you sure it's the correct Mary Miller Abbott? That would make her mother, Mary Miller 90597474, about 46 or 47 when Mary had her daughter Mary. And her siblings 19 and 22 years older than Mary the daughter.
