Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been hooked on this genealogy habit since I retired in late 1999.

Becoming a contributor to FAG has reinvigorated me as I work to get each individual I research documented for the benefit of future generations. I have found the contributors here to be a great bunch of people.

The FAG editors have graciously transferred over six thousand memorials to my account from that of valued deceased contributor Superkentman. I will be updating these memorials with additional information gathered in my research and will post info received from others. I'll also gladly transfer any of these memorials for which I have no additional information or direct interest.

So far I have been able to cross reference over 17,000 individuals in my tree file to their memorials on Find A Grave.

See my tree file on RootsWeb shown below.

Hi again... I did claim Mary Gates...but the records show "Kate Stillman Gates" with those dates of 1873-1953. Mary has 1844-1932. There are other "Gates" in the plot area, so I'll photograph them all and let you sort them out! Henry 1897 -1967;Julius 1843-1928; Ora L. 1905-1974.

Hi! For some reason, I never get emails requesting photos anymore...but happened to look to see if there were outstanding requests and found that you have made several.I plan to go out there tomorrow to get what you need, but, must tell you that according to the records, Lydia Burdick (@1845-1917) does NOT have a marker.

RE: Thanks
Anytime and Not a Problem.
Now that I know I am supposed to go to my Edit Tab, you can put as much in there as you want. I am now checking periodically.
I've added a few more pictures - had hip replacement surgery in July and finally getting back to being myself again. Just have to take it slow.

Thank you so much for sending the obit along to me. I have posted it to her memorial and I am sure it will be much appreciated by her family.

I'm sorry I've been negligent in responding. Thanks for the edits for her memorial. Do you want me to transfer it to you? I'm guessing you're a relative. If so I'd be glad to do so.

RE: FAG transferrs
Thanks for your response. I do think the edit button takes a lot away from THEM having to do much.

FAG transferrs
You stated in your profile that Find A Grave transferred a lot of memorials to you and I was wondering how you got them. I asked for one only of a person who was no longer active as I wanted to add lots of info to the memorial and they wrote me back and said I could only get it if I was a relative. I have lots of time to do what you are doing but not sure If I went about asking for one memorial the right way. Thanks for any info you can give me.

RE: Caroline Elizabeth Hawkins Irons
Thank you for your reply. I'm sorry I didn't think to give you the Find-a-Grave number. My grandmother, Clara Irons Roberts, is inurned at Chapel of the Chimes, Oakland, California. My grandfather, Charles Edwin Roberts, is buried at Greenville District Cemetery, Plumas County, California, Memorial # 76856679.

Caroline Elizabeth Hawkins Irons
Hello Jom,

Caroline E. Hawkins Irons is my great grandmother. I would like to thank you for the work you have done on Find-A-Grave on the Irons family. I just have one correction. It is mentioned on her page that she has a daughter Clara, born in 1868 (died 1918). That is true but she actually was married to my grandfather, Charles Edwin Roberts Jr., rather than Charles Benjamin Roberts. Charles Edwin's dates are 1872 through 1964. Also, I am curious about Annie Burnett (1887-1928) whose name is on the same stone, and seems to be a child of Ida Irons. Would you happen to know which of Ida's husbands was the father of Annie?

Thank you.

Wendy Roberts
