Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find A Grave was very useful to me in my past family research, it may be time to give back to this site. Find A Grave is where we find and add our memorials to our loved ones. It's wonderful to have this place where we are able to see the headstone, maybe their picture, and add their life story, and link them to their parents, spouse and children. It broke my heart to find someone dear to me here, after visiting the grave for such a long time and running out of conversation with the headstone, so began the taking of pictures of the markers next to the grave. If you stand at the grave, name all the children on the stone, and tell them what the grandchildren have been up to lately, you get to the sad part of the grandchildren they never got to know. Should our grandchildren ever want to know where they came from this may be one place to look in the future. If there is a memorial added and it is your friend or relative my loved ones are probably near by. It is surprising how many contact me about the names that have been added with more links and information. If you show interest in a name there will be more research done, so look again at it later. My renewed interest is in family history and plan to enter information for family and friends in the southwestern Idaho area. Will try to help you with requests, have had good luck finding local obituaries on microfilm.

You are correct. Most of the dates I received from Merchant FH has the burial dates not the date of death. But I figure they are better than nothing. You bio has been added too.

Thank you

Ann Hofmann
Frank Hillyard
Hi Mr. Fowler,
My name is Ann Hofmann. My father, James D. Bowles, was in WWII with Frank Hillyard. We have been unable to find any of Frank's family. My dad and Frank were best buddies and in fact, were the only 2 members of their troop to survive the war. Frank and his wife were going to come and visit my family but Frank was killed in a tractor accident just before the visit was to take place. I was not born yet but I have been told that my father took the news very badly.

I would like to contact Mr. Hillyards family if any exist. We know that he had a step-son named Rene. We do not know Rene's last name. Any help would be appreciated. Is anyone else buried with Mr. Hillyard?

Ernesto Arredondo
Hi Dan -- you added a gravestone photo for Mr. Arredondo yesterday. For that I thank you. Could you verify what cemetery you found his stone in? I have him in Hillcrest (Caldwell), but not sure that is correct. I have not been able to find a more complete obit for him.

Thank you,
