I am glad to share any information about the memorials that I manage. I have personal knowledge about many of them and welcome questions and correspondence.

My intent is to share family history (not just mine) so that it's not forgotten. Often I will ask for a transfer, add information and links and then transfer it back. I love it when bio's and obit's are included and families are linked!

I LOVE my old photos of relatives. I share them freely to help keep their memory alive for future generations. If you use any of my family photos, acknowledging the source isn't necessary, but it would be appreciated and keeps us all in touch.

Thank you to the Find-A-Grave folks who are responsible managers and take good care of their memorials with pleasure. A big thank you to the folks who accidentally make a duplicate and correct it when brought to their attention.


Here's an email excerpt from fellow graver, Alicia Roundy Houston. I love this! She nailed a trait that so many of us share:

...after a couple of attempts (and subsequent diversions that kept me sidetracked for hours and hours)

Hi Jen. I am distantly related to Anne Wardrope Nott Brigman and your December 1st, 2013 comment intrigues me. You said "Your bohemian spirit is still admired...long after you probably expected. What did you mean by that--or, can you tell me more about her and her family?

My mother is a Scott and some of her family are buried here. My father has done extensive geneology research into her family. Are you related somehow I see where you have updated some of that info. I have a link to William Earl Scott's obituary. He was my Uncle and is now buried there.

Re: Lottie Stinchacum
Your sweet Lottie appears to have "adopted" John Edward Boswell. I would be very interested to know if you have docs for this from Shasta County?

I meant Lee S Dunn, Sr., not Irven Dunn. I was thinking of Irven Oliver Lewis, who was Monny's son-in-law.

RE: Harry B Dunn
I arrived at Irven Dunn Sr b/c I discovered that his wife, Jeannette Lewis Dunn, is the grandchild of Monny Johnson and Roszena John's Johnson, whose belongs I found. Roszena's daughter's death certificate listed a Mrs. Irven Dunn and I saw that Jeannette was coming up in searches for the address that her mother died at - completely lucky find!! I actually spoke with Jeannette Dunn's daughter, Sandra Dunn Keffer, this morning. (We were both soooo excited about my finding in her family!!) I never saw a mention of Harry Dunn in my research, but then again, the Dunn's weren't who I was originally looking for either. =/ I think I am hooked on this genealogy stuff now though, so I will look up more about the Dunn's and let you know if I find anything!!

Looking for family of Lee Sanders "Buddy" Dunn, Sr.
Do you have his obituary? I found some personal items from the early 1940's in the attic of a vacant house I was repairing and have managed to track the owner of the item's family from 1893 to today and it appears his LAST living relative is his grandchild - Lee Dunn's wife! I have her name and phone number, as well as their son's name and number, but I am having trouble reaching them. I'm hoping the obituary can give me more family names to research so that I can return the items to the family. =)

Thank you for any help you can provide!
