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.

Infant Son Roberts
I was wondering if you would consider the transfer of Infant Son Roberts to me. My Find A Grave # is 47565987 and his Find A Grave is 104635942 so that I can place his info and put him with his parents and 5 siblings. Thank you Fillmore

Gold Rush Cherokee
Hi, I am a member of the Calaveras Historical Society. I contributed some info on Clem Vann McNair. I am a relative of McNair, Blythe etc.

I am a historian/ researcher of Cherokee History and I have been working on the Gold Rush Cherokee for a long time. It may take me 2 more years to finish.

I live in L.A. County. My email is teachersunion@roadrunner.com

RE: Sarah Prutzman Murphy
Well Maureen, we are family, that's great. Thanks for sharing your information with me. Dad (age 92 1/2)said the last contact he had with your uncle Jack was in 1936, at that time he was known as A J Murphy or Al. Your uncle worked at the Pennsylvania Hotel in NYC in 1935 as a transportation clerk. Shortly after Sally's death he lost contact with her family, around August of 1936. Hope we can put the missing piece together.

RE: Sarah Prutzman Murphy
Thanks for your prompt reply. I'm visiting my father in PA and will be returning home to CA tomorrow. My father is Sally's brother, he was 13 when she died. Dad said your uncle Jack came to my grandmother's house for a while after Sally died then went his own way. Sadly, we have no information about his second wife and daughter.

I've contacted the Marcy cemetery in hopes of locating the exact location of Sally's grave. My grandmother, Elise, died in 1962 and was buried on top of Sally. Apparently there's some family history and my grandmother was moved to another location in Marcy cemetery. My father may still know members of your uncle Jack's family.

RE: marker for George Robert Love
Right. If the funeral bill has survived, then
there is a fair chance that any stonemasons
bill would have survived as well.
The chances are that any stonemason would have
been Hoare as they are also in Gloucester Rd.

I suspect that your mother would have
had very little money at that time.

It might be worth while you emailing Bournemouth
Council and checking that there plot records match
the N4 71 from your receipt.

Otherwise I think we have had.

RE: marker for George Robert Love
So where did you get N4 71 from ??

RE: marker for George Robert Love
Are you sure N4 71 is the right location ? I started
off in N5 and there are a lot of 1946 / 1947 graves
there, as well as N4.

It looks as though Percy Finnís headstone, from the inscription, may have been installed some years after his death.
I wonder if any headstone from N4 71 got cleared away at that time. I am coming across an increasing trend for churches and some local authorities to disregard our feelings and wishes. Making no real effort to trace relatives and making it difficult for families to know what is going on.

If you think this is the wrong location and you can
pin down another one let me know.

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.
Thanks,
Sam Kessler
