There is what appears to be a flush
stone in the pictures for this memorial.
Frederick married Sarah Caroline Lauer
around 1879. Does this flush stone have
Lauer on it?

Do you know who if any might hold the records for Clatsop Plains Cemetery? Do you know if any still exist? I see you did a lot of the photos. Thanks.

I'm working on the Mudd Family history and I was wondering if I can print the gravestone photo of B. C. and use it in the family book since he is the father of Mary and Sarah Mudd wives of Willis and Frank.

Lewis Presswood
Here is the email she sent me.
Lewis Presswood

Hi Robert,

This is just not true that Lewis is a son of the Augustine buried in the Presswood cemetery in Monroe County, nor is he directly related. He is probably the son of the 'Austin' (Augustine) who was in Alabama in 1830 or so.

I have fought Sharon Presswood, the Fifes, and those who use Newell & Fay Presswood's research for years telling her I have researched this family practically back to the Garden of Eden and can find no proof that Lewis is in it, but the erroneous info they have posted has spread like water out of a faucet and is impossible to put back in.

If you will, please remove the link that has him as a son of Augustine until you can furnish proof, or I can have a Findagrave administrator to do so and will furnish all the Presswood research I have collected for the past 40 years as proof. Besides, Martha 'Patsy Bowman' and Augustine married in1853 after his first wife Mary Harper died, and being in their old age did not have children, so that link is absolutely ridiculous.

What you can do is put him in a virtual cemetery and connect his children, but I can almost assure you that Lewis R. Presswood is NOT a son of this Augustine.

Just think abut it, why would he be in Alabama as an 18 year old, hundreds of miles away in 1850 when all the rest of Augustine's family is right here in Polk and Monroe. Do you see a single name ever in Lewis' family that reflects his being a son of Augustine whose children have names such as Leander, Matthew, William I., Absalom, Josiah, and all of them have children with similar names - and Lewis does NOT.

Thanks Robert, and good luck with your Presswood research, hopefully you can find Lewis 'real' parents. If I were looking for his family I'd check out those Alabama Presswoods who seem to go right back to an earlier Augustine who lived in the Cheraw District of SC, same as our line. I know they're related back in SC, but Lewis is just not through Jonathan and Augustine.

Photo, please?
Hi, Kara.

I'm desperately searching for the graves of my great grandparents, and the results of a search on led me to you. I'd like a photo, please, of the graves of Hans and Anna Mamm, in the Lewis and Clark Cemetery in Clatsop County, Oregon. I can't be 100% sure at this point that the names are correct, but my grandfather, August Mamm, his brothers John and Richard, and their sister Pauline all lived in the Oregon area for many years, and we've never been able to track down their parents. Brother Richard is listed as a resident of Astoria, Oregon in 1909, at age 18. Can you help me? My email address is

Clatsop Plains Cemetery - Caroline Ward
Hi, Kara ~ I found your record of a headstone for Caroline Ward (1822-1879) in the Clatsop Plains Cemetery, along with her husband Charles (1823-1900). Caroline was the sister of my ggg-grandmother Catherine Burgon.

Would it be possible for you to re-visit the headstone at some point to double-check the date of death?

The 1880 Clatsop County census lists Caroline living with husband Charles, which would be impossible if she died in 1879...

Thank you very much for your assistance!

Joakim Larsson
The Kaarle Family
Hi Kara,

my name is Joakim, and I'm trying to help my mother find the name of some relative of our family that emigrated from Sweden in the early 1900's.

My great great grandmothers name was Anna Larson, and we believe she changed her name to Kaarle when she married Ralph R Kaarle in Michigan in 1917. Through find a grave, we have found that they both seem to be buried at Lewis and Clark Cemetery, along with what we assume is their son Einar.

It would really be of great help to us if you could help us with pictures of their gravestones. We would love to find out more about them but for now, the trail ends here.

Thank you for your help!

Flavel House
Hi Kara:
I found a very early photo of the Flavel house taken when it was in pristine condition, I would say circa 1905. I would be glad to send you a scan. Email me back at my regular email if you would like to see it.

Hi Kara, I'm wondering if you have any info on the Carnahan's of Clatsop Plains Cemetery? In particular, Hiram Carnahan. He came to Oregon in 1852 by wagon train via the Oregon Trail. He travelled with his wife and perhaps a child or two. His mother travelled along as well but died en route on Christmas day, 1851. I have been looking for her grave as well as any other information about this family. I am a decendant of one of Hiram's brothers who stayed in Missouri. Just wondering if you know anything from your end. Thanks, David Ramsey

Mary Lou McCormick
Oceanview Cemetery
Hi Kara, I just read your bio and see you are helping to transcribe records for the Oceanview Cemetery, is this the cemetery that is in Warrenton, Clatsop County? I have been looking for Spicer's in an Ocean View Cemetery Clatsop County so far I have only found 3 and know there should be a few more. If this is the same cemetery I was wondering if you have come across any? Thank you
