Wish we had gotten your edit first. Since we hadn't posted a photo nor was there one it, we weren't sure if we had the right info or not. She made a big deal about maybe he was cremated, blah, blah so decided didn't want to argue & just deleted ours. (Which is probably what she wanted us to do so she could move hers over. lol)
But thanks anyway...

Thank you for posting this, it was a pleasant surprise with this anniversary being harder than the rest. I do feel like I need to answer any questions the public might have about the "drug paraphernalia" found at my home. First read the articles on how devastatingly hot the fire burned, why would any thing of that nature still be in tact?? The answer to that is simple I kept my marijuana pipe and any lighters that did not have a childproof device on them in a fireproof safe. In my opinion, that information--minus the fact of it being locked in a safe--was given to the public after months of media pressure on Salem FD and the police to determine a cause for the blaze. I found it rather tacky and lacking integrity personally. The reason I still feel obligated to the public to respond to such information is because it was the public that came forward and helped my family both emotionally and financially and for that I will never be able to be grateful enough. Thank you! Jeremy Arendt

I am searching for information about my husband's aunts. His mother says that their names were Isabella and Isadora Neill, that they were born in Oregon in the early 1900s, and that they both died in Oregon as babies. Is there any indication that this grave might belong to one or both of them? Their parents were George James Neill and Jennie Isabel Craig.

I have cleaned grave markers all over the state.
I use cold water and rags. I do not do damage. But, I have found many mistakes made because of all the filth.
This is not an art project. My own mother would not want dirt on her grave marker. Rembrandt's get a cleaning why can't a grave marker. I once had a lady tell me that they were more beautiful with all the dirt. She is still mad at me for discovering all the error she made on Find A Grave. I'm sure she still has many an error. I just checked one cemetery. She claimed that the heavy moss and grass growing on them was beautiful. It was just dirty. She had to guess at who was buried and where.
I have relatives buried at this cemetery and have been coming for years. I stop by to make sure the lichens and moss have not took control.
I called the North West Eegional church office to get some answers. So far people believe that the location given does not exsist. The moruary did not keep a record. Someone is looking. But, it will take time.
My best, Martin Burrell

Hi Patty, On Se. 9, 2012 you made a memorial 96755123 for John Earnest Lydall and you also took a photo of his headstone. His wife has also died now. There is a memorial #68364859 for her but no grave site is known. Are you where you could take another photo of his headstone to see if her death 4-14-2009 has been added to the stone. Thank you for your time and trouble.

I spent apart of two days, at the cemetery, trying to locate their headstones . I've spoken to three people that are connected with the cemetery. So far no one has come up with an answer as to their plot location.
The three sets of cemetery maps, I have seen, shed no light on where the mix-up is. Or, where they are actually buried.
It is becoming very exspensive for me.
Thank you, Martin Burrell

The page for Jordan has been moved to Memorial Park. The original page was created by Ldybug and another dupe was created by Milliebelle. I sent a SAC to Milliebelle that hers was a dupe and somehow the original page was merged into hers even tho' the original had a lower number. How that happened, I don't know but it has been placed in the correct cemetery.

Town of....Willapa. At South Bend the Willapa River flows into Willapa Bay. The bay is mostly too shallow with mud flatts except for clams, oysters and other shell fish. It is a big business for the few that own the mud flats.

Greetings. [This is also for his wife]
I have added two more photos to his memorial and at least two to add for hers. You may have an interest in seeing them. There is one big favor...please remove the photo of the grave marker for both husband and wife.
1) They will not enlarge, as they are too small in pixel count. Her relatives requested to see this done in the near future.
2) It is totally unreadable and so could be for President Abe Lincoln, or, anyone else for that matter.
3) I will replace them shortly. It wil take alot of work with a scrub brush to remove the crud. I know the place well and have the cemetery index.
4) If you want to replace the photos yourself let me know. It is a project that I don't need.
We have several relatives with graves their.
5) On his wife, Emma's memorial fourth paragraph down, there is an error that I made and just found. The family farm was and is still near the Wiliapa River. The town, by the same name, does not exsist anymore. But, please fix the spelling of it. My grandmother had eight brother's and four sister's. All the young men worked in the woods in the early days. They dairy farmed too. But, logging paid the big bills and made life confortable. I have photos of trees eight and ten feet across. They were everywhere in the coastal woods of Pacific County. When they were cut it changed the whole areas weather. It had all been a rain forest down the coast to Lincoln County, Oregon. I can't imagine cedar trees eight feet across. Now, there is little work and the farms are too small. The families was 160 acres with the train running by the front yard. As a little boy what fun to wake up every morning to the sound of a steam engine stopping at every dairy farm in the valley to pickup the full milk cans and drop off the empties. The sound bouncing off the hills was of dairy cows each with a bell around it's neck. Ding, dong, ding all day long. It was tradition from the old county. Then we would go fishing for the rest of the day during the warm summer. Playing along the little creeks and drinking water right out of the streams. I can remember catching my very first trout there. I was amazed at how shiny it was; my brother and I were use to catching mude suckers to feed the cats. Then my whole fishing life changed when I caught my very first 4 inch sparkling silver trout. Wow!
Thanks for your good work. It is so needed to capture history in the form of peoples lives. Real good, hard working, living men and women that dreamed dreams of better lives for their families.
I don't do this work for the numbers. I like to think it is for the memory of the people now dead
and many forgotten.
Thanks, Martin Burrell
