Bio and Links
Bio Photo I don't know about you, but I love to see a face on a memorial. However, I am being scolded about copyright laws and have had to remove some very nice photos of our loved ones. What a shame. Most of these folks have been gone for so long, as well as their photographer's for sure.

I'm especially annoyed with people who rant about their copyrights to grave marker photos.

I love what another volunteer had to say, "those members of the family who are deceased deserve to have their images remembered".

YOU ARE WELCOME TO ANYTHING I HAVE AND COPY IT TO WHEREVER YOU WISH. You need not ask for my permission. And although it may be polite, you need not give me the original credit. Whatever I post, whatever site I post it on, I do it so you will find it, love it, and use it for your own. Free of charge. It's a gift.

I will TRANSFER a memorial without giving you the third degree about whether you are worthy or not. (Unless of course they are of my direct line, please understand.) Just ask me, go ahead. I'm pretty easy to get along with. :0)

* ORIGINALLY from Redding, SHASTA COUNTY, Centerville Cemetery is my family's plot still today. Today, I'm in Nevada County, CA. If you need something looked up here, just ask, I'll see what I can do. My Virtual Cemetery is Greenwood Block 1, check it out.

Life's short. Play nice. Practice random acts of kindness. Stress is optional.

Thank you all you other Find-A-Grave volunteers! You are so awesome!!!

Well I just did a quick look into Mr. Rickard. Yes I agree with you that this James Rickard was married to Ethel, and I see he was born Jan 13 1886 and died in 1946. A World War II registration showed him living in Grass Valley age 56 and has Ethel as a contact. There is definitely a marker at Pine Grove, but it doesn't mean he isn't buried at Greenwood, as he lived in the Grass Valley area. Thank you again for the information. Since there is a marker at Pine Grove, i am going to leave up my memorial, but I can reference Greenwood if you want.

Hi There,
thanks for the information, but i can guarantee the marker I photographed was in Pine Grove cemetery, as I have walked and photographed all markers as of a year or so ago. Perhaps there is another Rickard, or Richard, at Greenwood. It also can happen that a marker or headstone is at two different locations. This marker at Pine Grove definitely had the name Rickard, when closely examined you can see the letters, and a k is most evident. I wonder if there was also a James Richard, could be possible. I do appreciate you bringing this other to my attention. I also research at the Foley library, so maybe i can look into it more when I am there. Thanks again,

Yesterday, I reviewed the cemetery and had a wonderful time but didn't spot the location. I'm not certain if you were the relative that needed location of the gravesite, but that cemetery is associated with the Holy Cross Church (831-423-4182) in Santa Cruz. Today, I inspected two books at the Santa Cruz library and found information that may be helpful, yet not definitive as to the location of the interment. Please insoect my photos, down load them and let me know if this was a duplication of previous efforts on your behalf.

Best regards,

Joe Rooney

Thank you Deanna for transferring my grandparents to me! That was very kind of you.

And thank you for adding the recent picture of Loice's grave. We were in Grass Valley early April and searched for her grave. I didn't know until recently she was there. My 10 year old is the one that created the heart shape on her grave. Love that it is still there!
