Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Northern CA and have been interested in Genealogy research for several years now. What an amazing adventure it's been. I was told about Find A Grave to search for more clues to my ancestors. It was one of the best places I've come across. So I decided to become a volunteer and help others if I could.

My "Home" cemetery I work on is Redding Memorial. I've been on a quest to document this Redding Cemetery since the first month I joined FAG.

So now that I'm hooked, every trip or vacation we go on, I'm looking for a cemetery, what photos can I find and who else is looking for their family..


Family I'm looking for; Clary, Jones & Sherwood Family in Joplin, MO.
Oates, Owens & Guy; LA, OK, AR, AL and Tenn.
Happy Hunting..

Interesting that it is only his nickname on the headstone. Wish I knew the story. Thank you for your work.

Thank you for your time and hard work. Because of you I was able to find the headstone of my grandfather. He passed away before I was born and I do not recall any conversations about him growing. Thank you for opening the door for hopefully and entire side of a family I never knew.

This should make it easier to add Loda's parents -

Thanks so very much for adding Loda's maiden name. Now if her parents names could be added everything would be complete.
Thanks so much for your work. It's greatly appreciated.

Just recently found out Loda is in Redding Memorial. I'm hoping to get her maiden name and parents added so she will be linked to the rest of the family. Thank you.

May I use the photo that you contributed to the Find A Grave memorial for Calvin Dustin, to post on the Vermont Civil War site? (

You will receive credit for this.
