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.

Blanche M. Foss
I do not know how close to the Odd Fellows Cemetery of Fresno, California you are so this may just be a flash in the dark asking this question.
I am trying to get more information on Blanche Foss' family, especially her husband, Halden Foss. Are there any other Foss' buried in this cemetery, and if so who? Has this cemetery been completed other than adding new burials? I am trying to find where Halden was buried. No one in the family seems to know.
Thank you so much for your time and any help you can give me. Thanks for all the memorials you have put up on this site.

Maria Ibarra
You have 2 identical requests for Maria, did you intend to make one of them for Santiago Ibarra Martinez who is buried next to her? If so, I have a photo for him also. Thanks!

RE: Wanda Ward transferred
Thank you for transferring my aunts memorial. Guilty as charged! I retired 2012. Between the genealogy and Find A Grave it is very addictive. Thanks again.

I'm writing a short article on the Missouri State Penitentiary, and would love to use the photo you've posted here of Mr. Reno for the article. May I please use it? Will give you full credit. Thanks!

Yes, I soon found out. That's what I get for being clumsy! :) Hope you had a great time camping, this cooler weather has been a wonderful blessing!

Marion Smith #35462586

I am trying to obtain more information about Marion Smith. I notice that you created a findagrave memorial for him and linked him to his parents and step sister. Can you help me understand how you made to connection to his parents? This may be the wrong Marion since I believe he did not have a wife or children. Thank you so much.

I accidentally bumped the unclaim word on this request and was wondering if you would mind re-entering the request so I can claim it again? Sorry to be so clumsy, maybe I'm having a senior moment? 😊
