Bio and Links
I am able to send photos of grave markers in the Buena Vista Cemetery in Murphys, CA if you need them. I also will do genealogical look-ups for people searching for ancestors who were in Calaveras County in the 1800s or later.
I follow the Findagrave rule on transferring memorials so please make sure you are a direct descendant, within 4 generations, before making the request.

RE: Joseph and Agnes Storms
Right. My mistake. I still need you to delete and re-enter Joseph Storms on a new number and transfer back to me. Otherwise there will remain a non-functioning link to his wife.

Joseph and Agnes Storms
You have had to replace photos for Agnes Storms in Molelumne Hill Cemetery twice now, and I am embarrassed to ask you to do it again. But Find A Grave really messed up my account and have not been able to fix completely.
Apparently the only way to get it right is for me to transfer Joseph Norman Storms back to you so you can delete him, re-enter him on a new number, and transfer back to me. Then I need you to place your photos once again on his wife Agnes's site, #130886464. I hope you still have them, because Find A Grave deleted them and they are now lost to me.
So sorry for all the trouble, but this should be the last time.
Thank you so much and best wishes,
Sam Kessler

Hi Goldrush,
I just entered information on Myrtle's daughter who recently passed and linked the two pages. I found out from Myrtle's other daughter that her middle name is Inez if you would like to add that to her page.

RE: 95127647
Hello Goldrush,

I don't have a firm date. I would think the pregnancy would have occurred early in the marriage (1/16/1895)- maybe the end of 1895, early 1896? She was so ill - she probably would have been pregnant soon after marriage and not later. Just a guess.

John Manuel and Mary Malspina Manuel had an infant daughter who only lived for two days, according to her niece, my main source of family information. She recorded that Mary almost died of typhoid fever following this event.

I wonder if there is any record in the local newspaper or any way to tie the gravesite with their infant.

Joseph Bright Wiles - Memorial# 108540382
Hello - I've been looking for this family without luck for awhile now. Can you please tell me how you determined Joseph was buried here? I've been to the cemetery and thought I got to all the tombstones, but I might be thinking of a different cemetery or I just missed a stone.

I know there are a lot of burials in Vallecito #1 that relate to the Wiles family. Have you had any luck finding information on his wife? I must not be looking in the right places, but I keep trying.

Thank you for telling me your source for the burial. I've known he was most likely there but wouldn't enter it in my database without some kind of support. - Nancy

George Oliver Swenson
Here is what I have on Ella Mill, if this might help. She married Frank Taaffe, July 29, 1903 in Tehama County. I do not know if they divorced or he died. She second married Louis Elfers, July 16, 1913 in San Rafael. He died in 1929 in Madera County. Because her name when she died was Swenson, I just figured her third husband was George O. Swenson. They are listed together in the 1940 census living in Tuolumne county. Thanks, Steve (I have a distant and indirect connection to Louis Elfers, so do not have any additional information.)

Sadly I've never been able to find any document with his name on it after 1896. No census or anything
