Thanks for the picture of burial location
Thank you for taking the picture of John and Margaret Loney's final resting place. That is one massive tree that has taken over their plots. Still very good to have the photo. Very much appreciated. All the Best, Bryan

RE: C.P. Elwert
I got his date of death from the California Death Index on

California, Death Index, 1940-1997 about Charles P Elwert

Name: Charles P Elwert
Gender: Male
Birth Date: 18 Oct 1862
Birth Place: Oregon
Death Date: 20 Oct 1949
Death Place: Alameda


Bill read the information in an old brochure he found in the county building that was on site before demolition in 2002. I'm slowly adding to the memorial as I find references in the Historical Oregonian. Where did you find the 1862 date?

RE: C.P. Elwert
Thanks for the information. I don't know why someone added him to that cemetery when there seems to be no proof he was buried there.

RE: McMonies transfer Lone Fir
Thanks, I was sort of hoping you would. Be a shame to waste good photos. I'm working a-z, so it could be a couple of days before I get to the others. I hope there were others. My memory says there are, but it's not always the most reliable :D

The pamphlet had no other info than what I entered on his memorial.

Dr C P Elwert
His name was in a pamphlet of old burials I picked up at the Lone Fir office some years ago. I will transfer and you can do what you want with him.

Thank you for getting the photo. I thought there might be an error and the photo shows the name to be different. Thanks again!

Thanks for taking Evelyn Westrum's tombstone and the work it looks like you had to do with the stone sinking. Thanks again.

Thank you for looking.

Thanks so much for finding the location where young Hazel Hoard was buried and photographing it. It's volunteers like you that just make this world a nicer place!

I wish that I were in Portland to see all the beautiful flowers in bloom!

RE: Robert Lapke
You are welcome.
The stone couldn't have been more than a day or two old as it still had the dust on it from the engraving. Will get a better photo of it now that we have had a couple of rainy days.

Will let you know when I put it on.

Hi Linda
I am the current Baker Camp Commander of the Son's of the Union Veterans. Not sure who you contacted but we will get his headstone reset this year.

RE: Isreal Culpan
Hello... Odd.. Warley was a place in West Yorkshire, England yesterday.

Today, findagrave wants you to select England -> West Yorkshire -> Metropolitan Borough of Calderdale -> Warley

RE: John Bateman
Oh how wonderful! I have already left but I can relay the information to my family there. They would be interested in that.

Thank you,

Hi Linda
Haven't set a date to reset his headstone but we have located the headstone. Hope to get it reset in the next month before Memorial Day.

RE: John Bateman
Hello Linda,
Thank you for writing me.

I am incredibly new to Find A Grave. I have recently discovered it, and taking the photograph at John Bateman's resting place was my first activity.

To tell you the truth, I'm not sure how I was able to take and upload a photo with out it removing the photo request. I wanted to take and upload more pictures and the app on my phone didn't allow it, and I'm glad you took and uploaded more images. I am clumsy and new to the apps interface.

I am not familiar nor a relative to John Bateman, and I do not know the person who submitted the request. I found this "quest' as I've been calling it, using the GPS feature on the app. It was just a nice way for me and the family I am visiting in Portland to spend some time together and be a little active.

I took the photograph on friday the 18th of this month, seemingly just 2 days prior to when you took yours. I am surprised by the description of the condition to the marker, because it was relatively clean when I found it. I blew off some dirt and gave it a quick dusting before I took the photograph but that was it. There were heavy rains and wind during the day between our photographs, could that have caused the condition you found it in?

I hope my rookie answers give you the information you are seeking. I am new to this but would like to continue and any input is welcome.

Caroline Jenson / Lone Fir Cemetery

I was wondering if you could fix the spelling of Caroline's last name (I know that the records are incorrect). It is actually Jensen. Also, she was born 14 Dec 1857 in Sweden.

Let me know if you'd considering turning over the memorial to me, I'd appreciate it. Caroline is my husband's family.

Thanks, Beth LaGrone

I am starting to think that maybe Charles Webster Anderson is under that base, and for some reason is not recorded on their website. I need to make some calls to see what I can come up with. Thank you for the photos.

Mrs. Evans' gravestone
Dear Linda,
Thank you for your time and efforts in trying to find a gravestone for Mrs. Evans. I really appreciate it.

Christina Guild
Thank you so much for photographing Christina Guild's marker. I really appreciate your efforts. I have recently volunteered to take photos. I'm learning how much work goes into finding cemeteries and the headstones, photographing, cropping, and up-loadings, etc. Looks like this one was hiding and you had to pull the grass as well. Again thanks.

Thank you very much for the area photo of his gravesite. Your time and efforts are very much appreciated.

Take care.
