Bio and Links
Bio Photo I completely see the value in Find A Grave. I am a family researcher, and love this site! I view Find A Grave as another tool to maintain information on those who have gone before us for future generations to enjoy. If you see that I have any information that is incorrect, please let me know. Also if you have additional information you want added, just let me know!
My purpose in Find A Grave is to give a connection and personality to our ancestors. So as time permits, if I know of a neat story that sheds light on the person, I will put it in their BIO. I encourage any appropriate and kind story to be sent to me, and I will update their BIO.
Blessings to all

And Finally, if you find that a persons memorial I manage is more closely related to you than myself, please reach out to me with your relationship if you wish to manage the memorial. My worth is not determined by the number of memorials I manage (though to-date the ones I manage are mostly related to me in some way or so), or by the rules that govern the technicalities as to who has a right to manage the graves, and who does not. These are memorials for real people who have died, and living family members, at times, uniquely identify with these family members that have passed FAR MORE than the contributor who built the memorials from a spreadsheet etc.
Our experiences with Find A Grave should be informative, fact-bearing, and FUN.

Thank you for stopping at our son's site, James Henry "Tank" Dowling and leaving a token. Please continue to pray for our family as we try to heal. We will see James again in God's time. God bless, Saundra & Alton Dowling

The photo was placed in the newspaper by the family. I have no problem with you using it. There may be a better one at the funeral home website.

RE: Goins in Mount Vernon Cemetery Sacramento
I try to find newspaper obit in the city and state the person died.

If a Veteran I use US Dept of Veterans Affairs web site (Nationwide Gravesite Locator)

I use Bing for looking up by name

Thanks Cuz-in-law for linking James to his mother. Isn't it sad how they mispelled her last name on her grave marker. They also have her date of death incorrect. That's the date she was buried. I thin that her whole story was very sad.

Glad you found the photo posted for Mr.Lyons. Without going back out there to double check, if memory serves, he is in the correct section as given in the cemetery map, however-plot numbers are more of a "suggestion". There are so many unmarked/unused plots, and there are not "rows" per se-so you wander a section to find someone. The marker sits a few steps into the cemetery via a walk-in gate,on the west side.

I don't want to seem rude, or anything. Just note that Minnie is actually directly related to me. And the information that I am posting is coming DIRECTLY from the family information that we have. I know you are referring to her husband. Understand that Minnie's Father is a Grandparent (Direct Line). And the information on the memorial for Minnie spouse is the information that the rest of the family is wanting on there. We are waiting until one of us can get the headstone and get it posted to the memorial. Again this is not meant to be rude or anything. But the family didn't have any issues with finding her or her husband. As we are direct line family members to her.

I found his full dates from his Arizona death certificate. I put a link to it on his memorial page & you can view it there.

Hello Donna,
I am unrelated to William and his wife Virgie, so I felt that you should have management of the memorials since you are family.

Hope you have a marvelous Happy Thanksgiving!!
