Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am married and live out west, near Seattle, WA. My two daughters are grown now, so I have more time for genealogy, which has been my lifelong interest.

I want to share the information I have with anyone who is interested in having it. The images & text I post have the copyright info with them & if they're mine as long as you keep the citation and notice with them and share alike the "commercial use" limitation does not apply to republishing for genealogical, educational, or family history purposes (such as on, or in a published article or book).

If you have a question or suggestion, please click on the "edit" tab on the memorial, then click on "Suggest a correction or provide additional information", and use the message box. That will send me an email & I'll get back to you.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 66588444 for John Franklin Martin
Oh Jere, that would be amazing. I love seeing my ancestors handwriting! If you wouldn't mind sending the photo also? I think it would be interesting to see if it matches any of the dozens of unidentified family photos that people have uncovered over the years? JPEG format is fine. My personal email is

Thank you SO much!!

Hi Jere,
I wish I could be of some help. I don't have either one of those names in my database or know how my great-grandfather might have known either of the ladies. I find it very interesting and definitely wish I could be the recipient of that wonderful photo. I wish you the best in your search.

RE: Memorial #77717494 Margaret Hunter Christy
Thank you, Jere. I have written to Lois and we'll see if she can help solve the puzzle.

Memorial #77717494
Hi Jere,

Memorial #77717494, which you maintain, is for Margaret Christy, born Nov 22, 1822 and died Apr 4, 1894, buried in Kinsman, Trumbull County, Ohio. Oddly, another Margaret Christy with the exact same birth and death dates is buried in Old Annandale Cemetery, Butler Co, PA, memorial #61466754. Neither memorial shows a photo of the inscription. Do you have a photo of the inscription? I am also asking the person who is maintaining the other memorial.

RE: Julia Simmons Hunter # 38061325
You're very welcome. Sorry for the delay, but I was on the road and had to wait till I got home to check. Sorry I couldn't have been more help.

RE: Julia Simmons Hunter # 38061325
No. I'm sorry. That's all I have. Years ago Find a Grave would only accept very small photos so that's how I took them. Happily they now accept more useable ones.

He is not a relative of mine but if you transfer ownership I would make sure that his memorial is properly maintained. He is a hero to me and many other people here in Southern California.
