Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was 10 years old my mom told me a family secret. She was adopted, and that we were to meet her birth family. Her natural mom died and the state of California took mom and her twin brother away from her father and five other siblings. This began a 40+ of family research going from cemetery to cemetery. Meeting these really old people, who I'm grateful to have met. And my mom telling me these outrageous tails I thought she made-up. Then when my mom died in 2009 I inherited all of her research, and to my shock those tales were true. And I continue her journey and finding the clues she didn't have a chance to discover.
My camera recently broke, but when I get a new one, I can take grave photos.
My maiden name is Haskins.

RE: Maud Hensley Photo
Congratulations! Do you mind sharing the process you took? Did you have to get permission, etc.?

I live in the area, have commuted on that road, many, many times.

Reason why I ask, is in the event anyone else requests, I may help them. :)

By the way, did you find Maud Hensley? Or was she one of the ones moved to Arbor Vitae in Madera?

Maud Hensley Photo

Did you ever get this photo? Did you write to the Madera, CA, address and request permission?

If you've had no luck, I can try and give this a shot (pun intended). :)

Let me know.

I am not related.

I am a volunteer transcriber with the Family Search Indexing project, and often utilize their FREE source documents to preform these little random acts of genealogical kindness.

You can sign up for free on their website at and you do NOT need to volunteer to transcribe for them to be able to use their website to look up and view their images of source documents. They have census images, birth and death certificates, marriage licenses & certificates, divorce information and other goodies too! Although several of their databases do not include images of the source documents, enough of them do to make it worth a visit to their website.

Happy hunting for your ancestors,

RE: Carrie Shelly possible typo?
I received the dates from the burial records from the office and I really cannot read the stone. Do you want ownership of the memorial? Let me know. Anne
