|Bio and Links|
I first caught the "genealogy bug" at age 13 and have been searching for and finding my early Californio ancestors for the past 52 years! I am a direct descendant of some who came as early as 1769 with Portola, and of many of the 240 who came with Juan Bautista de Anza to settle California in 1775-76...and of those who arrived a bit later with Rivera in 1781.|
More recently I've discovered my New Mexico ancestors, those near Santa Fe and on the San Ildefonso Indian Reservation...and I'm having a wonderful time with this research!
Now that my grandsons are interested in learning of their ancestors we're adding families who arrived in CA for the Gold Rush!
My family knows I'm obsessed and addicted
... I just call it my passion!

You are so welcome. The cemetery is really close to my house so I keep a list in my wallet of recent additions. There are so many faded and forgotten markers there that the new markers are easy to spot.

Sheila, you are so very welcome.
I remember When he passed away, it is such an honor to do that in his Memory.
Gods blessings to you and yours.
Love always, Liberty
Sheila, Linda and I had a love for genealogy! Since she was bed bound, I would go out to the cemetery and take pictures and offer her the memory card. Almost all of her entries were from my camera. We worked on research together as pictures were added. This is why she transferred them to me before her passing. Rest in Peace Linda Furr! She used to say "It is not the quantity of memorials to build but the Quality of the memorial!" Each memorial needs their family, I will transfer as requested unless they are my own and many times I transfer even if they are! Don't forget to build a virtual cemetery for those that you cannot maintain.

I transferred him to you

Glad I could help. It is so important to try to link families together. It helps others to learn about their families.
|Gail Campbell Schulte||Ana "Loca Mariana" Andrada|
My Suggest A Correction for Ana "Loca Mariana" Andrada was only to ask you to move her surname from the Maiden Name field to the Last Name field so she will be easier to find in a Find A Grave search. She was an interesting person.
|N Wickam||RE: Watson, James Joseph #87372983|
You are most certainly welcome.

|Ed Smith||Manuel Garcia|
Oh, DUH, me too. Just got to your follow up email on Manuel. Keep up the good work and dig, dig, dig....

|Ed Smith||Manuel Garcia #39197573|
I checked the cemetery records and there are no other Garcia's near where this Manuel is buried. I'm not sure if this is the Manuel you seek as you said he and his wife had divorced by 1940 and he was with his daughter in the 1940 census. This Manuel died in 1935. There are a lot of Manuel Garcia's out there (just like us Smith's) and there are five in Hills Ferry Cemetery. Sorry I can't help more, but I would hate to see you spend your efforts just to learn this isn't the person you are looking for.
All the best.

Yes, I have to dig them out of my recycle bin.
Looked once but will look again. HM
