Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi fellow gravers. Just a few thoughts:

EDITS - Really appreciate edits. If you have any corrections, links or additions, let me know through the "edit" tab which is on the top right of the memorial page. I try to be perfect, but so far....:o(

PHOTOS - Please feel free to use any of my cemetery or headstone photos for whatever purpose. No need to credit me.

TRANSFERRING MANAGEMENT - To be fair to all, I follow Find-A-Grave's guidelines.
"Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren."

Just use the "edit" tab and let me know how you are related and your FAG contributor number.

FAMILY SEARCH - I am looking for parents and/or siblings of Austin Goodwin Broton [aka Broughton, Brotton, Button, Brayton] (1856-1946). He's my great grandfather and a bit of a mystery. His mother may have been a Goodwin, born in Scotland and died in New York about 1870...we think. His father's first name may have been Bernard.

HAVE FUN - Such a great site for researching family. It can be the best treasure hunt ever. It's made me cry, laugh and swear!

Hi Phyllis,

I really appreciate you contacting me re the change Michael suggested re the date of birth for Johanna DeMartini. She was my 2X great grandmother. In your reply to Michael, you seemed to indicate that you have info on her husband John Joseph DeMartini. As I have little info on him, anything you can share would be so welcome and appreciated.

Thank you so much.

RE: Johanna DeMartini
Hi Phyllis,
Again, CADI, lists Johanna as dying at age 103 in June of 1930, as did her obituary in the Sacramento Bee. So she would have to have been born before June of 1827 for this math to work out. And since I have found hundreds of Italian immigrants to California in my family trees to have their birth dates on California records be off by exactly one year from their Italian birth records, I adjusted Johanna's to 1826. Thanks again, Michael

RE: Johanna DeMartini
Hi Phyllis,
The California Death Index CADI 1930-1939
lists Johanna Demartini's as 6/12/1930. I sent in that edit before I noticed she had 6/10/1930 carved on her headstone. Since Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma notes that the date of death on memorials there may be the interment date, I have edited many dozens of them based on the CADI or SSDI dates. But since Johanna's is literally etched in stone,please disregard my edit for her death date.

Would you have any idea where Johanna's husband,
John Joseph Demartini (b. 1828 Lorsica d. 2/17/1894 Bear Mt.) is buried?, as I would like to connect him up with the rest of the family.
Thanks so much for creating the memorials.

RE: Dr. Andrew Randal
His son is also most interesting, also not as scientifically significant, nevertheless historically significant. The story ties in with 2 direct RI relative of mine, about whom I am writing. Still have to find that person's final resting place.

RE: Herbert Calcaterra #100755050
Hi, Phyllis. Thank you for your note. Interesting that the recent edit correction also affected my memorial for Herbert. Cool! While re-visiting the memorial, I again searched for one on his mother (Gladys Stites, d Feb. 27, 1986, Stanislaus Co.), but nothing was found, unfortunately. Thanks again for all your help.
