Greetings, I thought you would connect him to his parents.

Please check your material on Early Oregon's. It lists the wrong spelling for her maiden name. Please, add their date of marriage. I have been holding onto this record for a couple of years forgetting to ask for corrections.
There are other postings on your site for James Gray, you will see that his name appears several times. Will you be able to post the location of their interment? It would appear that he was a Capt. in the Oregon Calvary as that is on his marker..
Margaret Jane Scovell and James Stephenson Gray -- their marriage license is dated 10 April 1867 and they were married at the Scovell home in Linn County, with her parents and family as witnesses. The new couple continued living in Linn County until sometime after 1880, when they all moved to Tillamook County and their remains are found in the Scovell Family Cemetery at Nehalem, Tillamook County, Oregon. Her husband and parents are all interred there.
I hope this information is an encouragement to your people that try so hard to give out the correct information. They do a great job and I am so thankful to each of them.
Sincerely, Martin Burrell
P.S. James S Gray's has two of his parents interred in Union Point Cemetery, Brownsville, Linn, Oregon.His birth mother is interred in Hopewell Cemetery, Morning Sun, Prebe Co., Ohio.

RE: Peter Wesley Shunk
The scenario you present is highly likely. It happened to another memorial page of mine where the father died in 2011, but had a daughter who died in 1966. Cemetery records indicated she was buried with her father, but there was a memorial page for her in another state, which was the place of her death. So, there were two memorial pages for her and the contributor who contacted me was not as nice as you and told me the cemetery records had to be wrong and I was spreading misinformation. A photo request provided the evidence that there was a stone for her next to that of her father.

Thanks for your message regarding his burial in Missouri in 1929. As you may already know it is not unusual to remove remains and reinter them at a different location at a later date. Per the National Cemetery Administration this individual is buried in the Post Cemetery at the United States Military Academy.

I found your memorial and am curious if you are related? I'm searching for my 3rd Great Grandfather, Shubal Starkweather who was born in 1779 in New London, CT according to his US Army enlistment info. I'm not finding much online and am curious if I can find a descendant. Thank you for your assistance!

Alice, are you able to call the cem. there (I see all the work you do!) Could would or can you call them for yourself to make sure she is not there? Also thinking only other way is to find the funeral home and contact for burial.....

Da....gee Alice, was in the back of my mind, kept thinking I knew who make the memorial... but did not recognize the owl nic. I kept thinking if you knew me would be a response :) so when you just said a friend told you and nothing more, I didn't think it was you.

Sorry, please ignore and delete my messages below, was good to hear from you, you are the only one that helped me, so double sorry, pls forgive my impatience.

Find A Grave Memorial# 106781837

This is my grandmother's sister and when I found her memorial (a long time ago) I requested a photo of her headstone. I live in Kansas City Mo. and will never be able to travel to see it.

I received this response in regard to the request.
The general problem they reported is:
Cemetery office has no record of this person

They also reported, specifically:
The Grand Army of the Republic cemetery office, in Snohomish, WA, informed me
that there is no record available.

Due to this problem, we believe that this photo request can not be fulfilled. As
a result, we are removing it.

I read your profile Owlisnapp... how did you post a memorial for her here? And where is she, why is there no cem.record for her? How did you make a memorial for her? I have a copy of the Death Index and only says who her parents are etc. does not say where she is buried.

RE: lillian v. taylor
OK, thanks, I am just clutching at straws. He must have been locally famous to have had the airport named for him, even though it has not lasted, so I should try the papers and local government.
