Feel free to use my photos and biographical comments to enhance your genealogical projects. Crediting me as a source is a nice touch but not necessary.
Find-A-Grave is a wonderful site and it keeps getting better, aside from a few cranky old individuals who rigidly adhere to their notions of right and wrong. It has evolved from a simple registry into a valuable genealogical resource. The links are especially helpful in following families and the biographical notes and photos are often invaluable resources. I give a hearty "thank you" to all who contribute.
I'm a native of Colorado, growing-up in the suburbs west of Denver (Lakewood, Golden), but I've lived in San Francisco, California for many years. I enjoy creating memorials and photographing stones, especially for veterans, being a Vietnam veteran myself.
I've spent countless tranquil hours at San Francisco National Cemetery and Golden Gate National Cemetery (both very close to my home), thinking about all those poor old veterans who gave their all, and a trip to Crown Hill Cemetery in Jefferson County, Colorado is always a treat. All 4 of my grandparents and 6 of my 8 great-grandparents are buried there, providing lots of pleasant nostalgia.
William Eugene Santer You have posted a memorial for William # 141360538, with his second wife, Nina. And memorial # 143145163 is posted with his first wife, Elizabeth Schultz in Mount Olivet Cemetery. Do you know for sure at which site he was buried? Death dates have been added to both markers.
RE: Earl F. Shaughnessy @ GGNC That is correct, Earl was my step-dad and a good man. He took all my mom's kids under his wing and considered us as his own. He died of diabetes at age 61 and my mom never remarried. She died in 2005, still missing him.
RE: Raymond N. LeBlow and Lawrence V. LeBlow Thank you very much for the correction on the Leblow listing.....I'm not sure how I made such a huge error on it but I think I transposed it from another listing I was working on.....Cheers! Steward
