Bio Photo My Names in my Ancestry circle are: Hill, Berry, Day, Kuykendall, Sims, Stone, Athey, Gloyd, McNaughton, Langworthy, Porter just to name a few. I do have a Ancestry Tree, My Oak Leafs.

My love for Genealogy started back when my mother had been doing research on Genealogy before there was computers. My mother has been doing OUR TREE since I was a teenager. I finally got the bug to do Genealogy when Ancestry.com came out. I just love the history and seeing the pictures of people in my family. I do have a TREE on Ancestry.com and Find A Grave has helped me soooo much. The Memorials that I do have on my page, I am related to most of them and what a blessing it has been able to find them on Find A Grave.
If you would like to use any of my pictures for your Tree, please feel free to do so.
Thank you, Karen

Dear Karen,

You do not know me and I just registered to this site because I finally found a grave I have been looking for for 8 years now! I'm writing you from Norway. I'm sorry, but this turned out to become a pretty long mail (I'm rotten at writing short in English!)... I hope you have time to read it and get it in time as well...

You see, my grand aunt, Esther L. Fosse, who went to America in the early 1970's, suddenly disappeared for our family, a short while after her husband, our uncle Alf C., died in 2002 (phone # did not work etc.). She/they had been in contact with our family, especially one of my aunts, regularly all the time. They also visited regularly, the last time was when she was 86 though. There was a big family reunion party for them, so they could see each and every one of us. It was an emotional visit, as she told us that this was the last time we would be able to see each other, they could no longer travel. So when she disappeared, my aunt even utilized channels like the Salvation Army and the Red Cross to do searches for her in the US (her last address was in La Mesa, San Diego County, CA). We were afraid that either she had died without us being notified or that she was in some nursing home. The last time she visited us, at 86, she had started becoming a bit forgetful (but uncle Alf was still in great shape). Uncle Alf had one son, who as far as I know is a reverend somewhere in the US, but aunt Esther had no children of her own. So you can probably understand the worry for her. I tried to find uncle Alf's son online too, since maybe he knew what was going on with his step mother, but couldn't find him. I started searching for aunt Esther online soon after I started using the net around 1995, but found no clues until I finally found out that she had died in 2007. At least we finally got to know that, but it was really sad too knowing that we missed many years when she was alive, probably in a nursing home (still do not know anything about that part). Had we only found out where she was, some in the family could have stayed in touch at least with the home. I have promised my aunt to keep searching regularly, but as time passed, it became a yearly thing. I did my search last year, but didn't find out then either where she was buried (together with uncle Alf). I must have searched early march though, because when I did this year's search, I found the grave had been added here and one more place (picture of the grave only the other place). I clicked the comments though and through that I saw that you had commented on going to San Diego later this month. I don't know if it is too late now or... But maybe you are going to that certain cemetary? I hope you don't mind me asking, even if I know it is a lot to ask... The Cemetary is Greenwood Memorial Park, and the grave is listed on here as #127016133. But it is only a pic of the cemetary entrance, not their actual grave (Esther L. 1907-2005 and Alf C. Fosse 1913-2002). Could you please take a photo and upload it?

I've been sitting here thinking for a while, if I dare to ask you to do even more. Please, but just know that it is more than OK to say no, OK?

It would have been fantastic, if you are going there and will take a photo anyway, if I could transfer a suitable amount to you, and you could get a nice bouquet of flowers from our family and put them down on the grave before you take the photo...

I am so happy that I at least got to see a picture of the grave at billiongraves (I think that was the site name) but it was real sad to see it all bare, not even a little plant or anything. A photo here with flowers would be so great (not just add virtual, but real, flowers)

It would have been something I think would really help family members get closure. I would love being able to print the photo to give to my aunts (my dad and some of his other siblings have now passed away).

If it is not too late (and you've already been there), and you would be able to do either one or both of my wishes, could you contact me directly at my e-mail if/when you see this? My e-mail is peapeam at yahoo dot com (if you could get flowers, I would need to know how you want me to send you the funds for it and to cover your costs for doing this for me). :)

Thank you VERY, VERY much or to put it as we say here in Norway: TUSEN TAKK (A Thousand Thanks)! :)

Sincerely,
Aase Marit :)

RE: Allens buried at Jacksonville Cemetery
Karen, that would be fine with me, however, please give credit for photos to Joseph Sparks Family Tree Maker, and Jacksonville sign photo to Brian Fuller. I forget now how & why I entered these memorials, probably thru distant relative. I have 2 brothers here, and my ashes will be interred here also.

RE: Amy Lee Stanford Young # 6297875
Thank you....appreciate it. I will email you the last address I have for her. I have not seen her for a long time but I know she still lives in the Dallas area and this was where she and Adon lived and raised the kids.

RE: Amy Lee Stanford Young # 6297875
I know for sure she and Uncle Luther had only 2 children.. their daughter never married but son, Adon, married and had 6 children. I did find a family tree of a Luther and Emma in Abilene Tx. but they never lived there. In 1940 Upshur Co. TX. census shows Luther, Amy, Adon and Fontene living in Upshur Co. It will be okay with me if you put it on her memorial. Thank you for this. I will try to get her daughter- in- law's address for you.
