RE: Koops
I have just posted Roger Koops' grave stone photo.

Added by BB on Feb 25, 2016 5:05 PM

I just fulfilled your photo request for Harold Koops and found a ROGER KOOPS (1966-2006) buried near him. There does not appear to be a memorial for him at Artesia Cemetery. If he is family and you would like to create one, I would be happy to post the grave photo on it. No need to do another photo request as I have already taken the photo. Just send me a message telling me you have created it and I will post the picture.

Broersma DNA
Hello, Luke. I believe we may be related thru the Broersma/Haitsma line. Am sending an email via Ancestry to kaybroersma who administers the DNA test I'm looking at. Would love to compare notes, thanks!

Just added the headstone photo for Blanche. HOWEVER--the stone is damaged and most of what's written is now worn off.

Also added the headstone photo for her husband Theodore, who is buried next to her.

Isak Edward Swanson
Hi Luke,
I see you are trying again to find Isak Edward Swanson at Oakmount Cemetery, Lafayette, Contra Costa, California.
I wrote you June 2010 - a couple of times on this board as I couldn't find him thru the cemetery office.
Remember, I only saw Mary Swanson when I took the photo shot. I also returned and besides myself and 2 of my kids, we searched the area, but nothing came up.
I just jointed our Public Library and called them to see if they have newspapers online. I can only get access to the later 1996 and up papers on internet thru my library card.
So I will have to visit the library in the next 2 wks or so as I am gone this week. I don't know if you have their obits yet...Isak or Mary's.
I will look up the obits for Isak if he is in the local papers and see if the obit/death notice shows the place of his burial. This should be on their microfilms per the library.

I have claimed your photo request for Julian Broersma. I will photo and post tomorrow.
I wanted you to know that I also located another Broersma at the same cemetery, and have transferred ownership of that memorial to you. No need to request a photo though, as I will also photo and post to that marker tomorrow.
Just wanted you to know.
Thanks :-)

On Hendrick Dengerink's memorial (25593642) you have noted "s/w Willemken Dengerink". What does s/w mean? Who is Willemken & is he related to Hendrick?If yes, how? Thanks.

Etje photo
Hello -
I claimed your photo request for Etje and am sorry to report there is no headstone or marker for her. I will mark the request as necessary and add a "flower" stating there is no headstone. By a sheer chance - do you happen to have any photos of her brother Pieter / his family?? I believe they are buried in the Netherlands - Friesland. Thanks! Megan

RE: Sierra View Memorial Park
that is rather odd since I have documentation. Is there possibly another cemetery with similar name around Marysville and/or the other city? Martha

Luke I'm transfering these Bates over to you since they are related to your family. I should put that in my bio that if anyone wants the management of their relatives I can transfer. If you need any more pics let me know

other names in the plot
The other names in the Bates plot are a Frank C Jr, Mertie Bates Loomis married to a Chester K Loomis but his grave isn't there. Elmer Bates 1887-1943 and his wife Florence E Turner Bates 1885-1986 she was a 101 when she died, Frank Clifford Bates 1923-1972, Marlene Bates(married name maybe Frank Clifford Bates wife they were both in the military during WWII and possibly their son Philip Clifford Bates 1959-1972 also in the military and there is also an infants grave with the name Tewksbury but I'm not sure if that's where the infant was born or a name. I have to retake the photo because I can't find it.
