Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born and raised in Fresno, California of Alabama born parents, got into Genealogy in 1997 when I could not figure out what else to do with this computer on-line. I have built up quite a lot of pictures of old shots of the cemeteries of Clay County and Jefferson County Alabama. I have visited most of the cemeteries of my ancestors and my Wife's ancestors in Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas. A Self-proclaimed Historian with a California Historical society (E Clampus Vitus), I am visiting places of historical interest and with my trusty Dimage , Vivitar and Olympus digital cameras have been taking pictures of headstones at whatever cemeteries we may visit and Historical Monuments in our travels in California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Washington. In Fresno, I have added the 1919 biographies of early Fresno residents from the Paul E Vandor book titled "The History of Fresno County" to as many listings as I could. If you have something you would like to have added to a Bio, just drop me a line.

I follow FindaGrave rules and usually transfer close relatives within 30 days. You can complain to the FindaGrave administrators if you want, but you will likely find they too have little patience for impatient people.

RE: Ehats
Dear Lester,

Yes, you are correct. I neglected to include my Find A Grave contributor number. My number is:


I will re-send my email (with its links) and include that contributor number this time.

Thank you so very much for responding.

Find A Grave Memorial# 40579613
Hi Lester,

Could you please make a note on Find A Grave Memorial# 41696881 Clarence Peter Hancock (1878-1956) that there is another memorial page for him @ the page in the subject page under Peter Clarence Hancock?

I have requested that his first wife be linked to your page on Clarence Peter Hancock, but hope this additional information will help prevent confusion.

Thanks for all of your great work.

Maurice Uhler
I am thinking that this is the same Maurice Uhler who was married to my father's sister. She was Vyrl Myers, and they had two children, Russell & Marcia. Do you have any other information about him?
