RE: W.I Stinnett Farm reshoot request
I was just out talking to Mr Stinnett yesterday. It was pretty late in the evening so I have to double check the photo's. I was invited back anytime to shoot them. Surprisingly neither of the stones were crooked. There are chunks missing from the top just due to age related weather problems and weak areas in the stone. I could make out part of William and Bourne. The dates are good for both. The photos I took were mainly so I could get a better look at them in the light. The old log cabin was there since he was 10, so 60 years. He started renovations on it and had the roof off to be replaced and had to have open heart surgery. By the time he could get back to work on it there was too much wood rot. That was the photo you saw. He had to tear it down and rebuilt his new house on the same spot. Very beautiful place. When I'm out there next I'll see if he knows how far back the cabin was dated. He's a wonderful man and the little garden where the stones are has been redone. He may have actually straightened it himself. I'll keep you updated on it.

RE: W.I Stinnett Farm reshoot request
Of course I'll send you copies and I'm not going to accept any money for them, or gas. I think it's wonderful she went out to do the photos and I believe I know exactly who it was :) There are times photos just need to be re-shot, it happens. I'm going to try and get in touch with the people who used to own it and hopefully still do, this week. I'm on my way out to the National Cemetery to take some shots for a couple of families as a holiday surprise. One loved one was just lost in December and I'm hoping the headstone was put on rush to have the spouse engraved and the stone replaced before the holidays.

Happy Holidays,

Michelle

RE: Thank you
Dear Alice,

Thank you so much for your lovely message. The poem that I have named "William's Wish" is a poem that was inspired by a dream I had of William. The poem reads like a conversation we are having with William. The part sent to You is William's message to us. We felt it was a message that Edmund would surely send to You with much Love ♥ so please look upon it as a message sent from Edmund's heart, to yours.

Our Wish to You is one of Peace and Love this Christmas and always. Thank you for being so loving towards William this year and we'd also like to thank you for your lovely message on William's Smile Train guest book. ツ We are quite sure William feels your prayers and good wishes.

Love,
Jennifer and Jimmy

Dear Alice, Thank you ever so much for adding my beloved grandmother, Julia Dowling, to your Angel Day list. I see that my mother-in-law, Isabelle Roddenbery (whose Angel Day is tomorrow), is on your list as well. With gratitude, Cousin Janice

A favor to ask
Dear Cousin Alice, Would you be kind enough to add to your list the December 17 Angel Day of my beautiful grandmother Julia Mitchell Dowling? Her site is Memorial# 49175055. She wasn't a Stultz, but her daughter (my mother) married into "our" family. She was such a kind, loving person, worthy of tributes from Find A Grave members. I hope that you, your family and friends are enjoying a beautiful Christmas season. Fondly, Janice

Moe Family
Hello, I am pretty new to genealogy and I have recently found this site. I noticed that you are doing research for the Moe family. I am a descendant of William and Edna Moe through Gertrude. I was wondering if there was information on their family that you were willing to share. Thank you so much.

RE: Hi Debbie
Lorell was a bachelor but his brother William was his informant on the document. William is buried at the IOOF Cemetery and one of William's wives is located at Lane Memorial. Is the Veatch funeral home still in business? If so, could you shoot me a phone number?

Alice, I am a descendant of Arbraham Issacson VerPlanck. I am interested to know your line. Maybe we are distant cousins. Who knows. My great grandmother was Mary Newlin VerPlanck. She married my great grandfather Samuel William Johnson.
My VerPlanck family settled in Duchess County, NY. And, there is a town named VerPlanck in New York.

I just added another picture to give you an overall view of the family. The three stones are on the east fence line and George was broken off and laying on the ground so I stood it up for the picture. Alan

RE: [Send Reply] info about where grave is for Gott fanily
Alice, Thank you for arranging to have Roy meet us at the cemetary Tuesday the 24th. He was very helpful in helping us find Violet Gott's headstone.

We have one more small favor to ask: Could you please respond and provide us with the lot #of her headstone? We do remember that she is in section 2.

We were wondering if we could meet with you briefly the beginning of this week as your previous email you mentioned you had some paperwork on the Gott family.

Warm regards,
LeAnne

RE: Hi again Jan
Benjamin Morton (b 1761) is my 1st cousin 6 times removed. His parents were John Morton and Sarah Hawkins - I think. I would be glad to send you info on my Mortons if you will send me your e-mail address. I am Janhickey1@comcast.net

My family database is online at Rootsweb but I haven't yet added recent additions (like the Benjamin Morton descendants.

RE: Stella Williams
Maiden name is Williams, but would like to find all the descendants of Washington Williams and their spouses. Just a shirt tail relative as Lloyds grandfather William Henry Williams is my Great Great grandfather's Richard's brother. Just like you I find the Find A Grave web page a wonderful way to connect all the relatives and not let anyone have to do the same work we have done. Have talked to stella and lloyds grandson (Gary) and hope he will add some pictures for us, they always add a personal touch to the memoials. I live here in The Dalles. Thanks again for all your hard work. Jean and Jane

HI Alice, I was looking up the Jones girls in the Cambridge Cemetery, and noticed Mrs. Morton's name. I have wonderful memories of sweet Mrs Morton. She attended the church my father pastored in Cambridge. I think it was around 1949 or 1950. I was in the 2nd grade, and she would have cookies waiting for me almost everyday as I walked home past her house. She had a little black dog named Hooley, short for Hooligan. She loved to make hats and flowers out of chenille and wanted us to wear them to church. lol I also remember playing her big old pump organ. She seemed lonesome and would beg us to come back the next day. She taught me how to make May baskets. My most wonderful childhood memories were of Mrs. Morton.

Alva H. Moe
I noticed you added some photos of Alva H. Moe to his memorial page. I am the administrator of the Klickitat GenWeb page in Goldendale, Washington and looking for a photo of his son, Alva Jr. who was killed in action in the Phillipines in 1945. I also noted that Alva Jr's (Find A Grave Memorial# 56784315) has no photos. I was wondering if you happen to have a photo of Alva Jr.? I found one on a newspaper online, but it is at the crease of a newspaper and is quite poor. I would be glad to send you the newspaper reports if you don't have them.

Hi Alice, thank you for leaving a token on my mother's memorial.

You know, the "Bourne" name that you are researching may come from Massachusetts, near where I live. On Cape Cod, there is "Bourne Bridge", and I am also related to the Bourne's.

I just wanted to give you info so you can at least look in New England on that line for that surname.

They may have gone west during the gold rush.

Many sincere thanks,
~ Darlene
