Bio and Links
Bio Photo ABOUT ME: I'm a first generation California native. My folks came to San Diego as young father from Pennsylvania, and my mother from Oklahoma. I am married and we have two grown children, and two grandchildren (with a third on the way!). We live in Ramona, a rural town in the mountains above San Diego. Among my interests, genealogy is number one. I can't get enough of it. When I found this site, I didn't realize it's full potential until months later. I've been able to find photos of 2nd great grandparents' graves. I've submitted corrections for names and dates. I've reconnected with long lost family members, albeit over photos of their grave markers. I've found kin that I never knew existed. I've also found markers for family that were stillborn or died in infancy or childhood that I didn't yet even know their names. Find A Grave contributors are so helpful! The thoughtful souls that go out and fulfill photo requests will never fully know the depth of my gratitude. In turn, I'd be happy to fulfill any photo requests in my area. PHOTO REQUESTS: I'd be happy to help with photo requests in all of San Diego County. Occasionally, I venture to Imperial, Orange, Riverside, and Los Angeles Counties. I love genealogy and would be thrilled to connect you with your friends or family.PHOTO CREDITS: Any photos that I've posted are from my own personal collection, or posted with the permission of the owner(s). If you would like to use any of my photos posted on memorials, please feel free to do so as long as you give the photo credit to the person that is listed as the contributor. If it is mine, I'd appreciate a "Photo courtesy of Marla Fryman". I always give a photo credit if I am able to, and apprecitate the same in return. Thank you in advance for the mutual respect. FAMILY TRANSFERS: If I have any memorials that are related to you, I'd be happy to transfer to family, as others have extended to me. If we are both related, then I'll hang on to them unless you are closer. Sound like a deal?:)

Re; Donna Beatty, South

Would like to talk to you about Donna, your friend.
Do you happen to have a picture of her?

Samuel Lightner
Hi, Marla
I went to the North Liberty Cemetery today. I did not find a stone for Samuel Lightner (1802-1886). But I did take a better picture of the tall stone you already have posted on his memorial. The dates look to be 1883-1922. I will post it and if it's not correct, we can remove it.

Dear Marla, forgive the intrusion but I saw your memorials for your great grandparents, Peter C. McWilliams and Della Lightner. I was so sad to read about what happened to your great-grandpa. But the interesting news is that you and I are related! Della is descended from the same ancestors as myself. I thought I would say hello and see if you are interested in learning more about her ancestors. I will keep this short for today, but if you feel like dropping me a line, I can be reached at michaelscaldwell (at) me (dot) com. Have a a wonderful remainder to your December and 2015! -- Best regards, Michael S. Caldwell

Just thought I would say hello. I saw you posted that you are the 5th great granddaughter of Andrew Rose, and I am his 5th great-grandson, so we are apparently cousins.

Hi Marla, Sorry to say that findagrave is having problems with sending info from the edit tab so I thought I would send you the info this way.

You may want to add the following to Ira's bio.

Ira first married Essie Opal Moose on 8 February 1918 in Monroe Co., Ohio. Ira's second wife was Mary K. (Wharton) Bates. After Mary K's death Ira married a 3rd time to Lulu Ethel (Bowmsn) Staggers Mickels on 27 May 1961 in Summit Co., Ohio

Thank you and keep up the great work you do at preserving history.
