I see that you took photo(s) at Franklin Butte Cemetery in OR. I was wondering if it is attended. I am trying to find the complete death date of a person.

Just saw your photo request. Spelling on gravestone is different that the site you requester photo for. If you look under Beyeler rather than Beyler you will find photo of gravesite. Please let me know which spelling is correct.

RE: Margaret Vivien Gray Foulkes
I did some searching myself and got frustrated with trying to find anything on Margaret's family and moved on to other pressing matters. She is on Find A Grave and it is very possible someone will come along one of these days and find her on their and your sweet little picture you found and be overjoyed. :-]

Wow, neat picture. That is neat you found that picture and could "connect the dots". With a name like Foulkes it would be pretty hard to go wrong on that one. It is surely the right person.
Nice job on that one.

removing pictures
To remove any picture that you have added, just click on it so that it opens in the screen where you can then add or edit the caption. At the top click on "Delete Selected Photo", then OK when it asks if you're sure.

Many thanks for posting the beautiful portrait photo to the memorial. It adds a nice personal counterpoint to the marker picture. By the way, that's a terrific idea, capturing images from old photos in antique stores and matching them to folks on Find A Grave. Keep 'em coming!

How incredibly awesome. I never thought in a million years someone would discover photos of them.

I have been researching my Martin family for about 20 years. Lucinda is my 1st cousin 4 times removed.

It is really great when you can put a face to your family. Her father Isaac Martin was my third great uncle. I have photos of some of her siblings and my aunt and uncle Isaac and Mary Martin.

Thank you so much for your contribution, it is much appreciated.

Best Wishes to you and yours.
God Bless!!!

Diane, thanks so much for finding and posting the photos for Nondas Bonora Howard Simmons #53091516 and her sister Nancy Millie Howard Baker #22595365. It's amazing you found the people on findagrave and put them together. You can see the photos are taken at the same house. They are both my 4th cousins, 3x removed so they aren't very close relatives. Their father Rev. James Hayden Howard #40638081 was written up as being the first white male child born in the Oregon Territory. Have any of their ancestors contacted you about the photos?? I hope you don't mind I added the photos to my Ancestry tree. Thanks again so much, Earl

James Alfred Casswell
Quite the interesting find you made, the picture that is.
I did some studying on this. I Googled John Phillips Sousa in various ways. I also did a search in the Oregonian for 1908 about him.
I don't know if you know anything about Sousa? He was like a total "Rock star" of his era. He wrote many, many of the all time greatest Marches of all time for marching bands. His band toured the whole US for many years. He played at Worlds Fairs. His bands performed for Presidents. His bands toured Europe and played for many dignitaries, etc. etc.
I played trumpet and french horn in band and orchestra all the way through grade school and high school and am all too familiar with his marching band music having played many of his marches growing up. I think his song "Stars and Stripes Forever" was probably his most famous marching band song he ever wrote.
As for the Caswell's in the picture you found. I have no idea for sure. It appears to me that they took this as a photo posed by a backdrop like many portraits that were done in those days. The uniforms they had on were reminiscent of marching band uniforms that the Sousa bands wore. There are so many different styles the Sousa bands wore over the years that from looking at pictures on the internet it looks like they must have had more than one type of uniform they wore for different occasions each year and then had different styles each year they performed. A lot of different styles of uniforms they wore.
You said in the caption that it was written "On the cover" where the picture was taken, "with the John Sousa Band".
It is obvious the band was not in the picture with them so it is a bit misleading perhaps the way somebody wrote that note with the picture.
In stories on the internet the band did have local guests perform with them on their tours, at times anyway. I did see at least a couple mentions on the internet that Sousa's band did perform in OR and WA in the early 1900's. It could be the Caswell's were huge fans of the Sousa Band and got uniforms similar to Sousa marching band style uniforms just to wear to a performance the band did in Portland and were actually not really in the band themselves. That would be my best guess.
The 1910 census said that James was a common laborer in cement work as a profession, in Portland.
I have no reason to not believe it is them but have serious doubts they were actually in the Sousa Band.
Anyway, thanks for letting me know about the pic.

RE: 58967891 Thomas J. Hunter
You're right I put the wrong photo on his memorial. Unfortunately, I don't have that photo in my library anymore, but I know where his grave is and will get a photo next time I'm at that cemetery. I have put the photo on Bonnie's memorial. Thank you for letting me know. Chris

Hi Diane, thanks for posting the pic of the Perkins children. I have taken the time to do a search for them and found them in Walla Walla in 1870 & 1880. I found their mother Esther, just over the border in Grand Forks, BC where she died and is buried there. The children in photo are Lucy California(Louise)the oldest, Lizzie born 1865 and Clara born 1867. There were 2 more girls born later, Minna(Martha)1869 & May 1875.
One of Lucy's grandson passed away in 2014.
You never know, you might have solved a family mystery. You have done good.
Question== what are you going to do with the photo? Have you a home for it? If you are willing to part with it I can track down a relative here in Kamloops, BC.
Also= would you like me to post the info you put under the photo in the BIO on Memorial page?

I wonder if I might have permission to use your photo of the George Fristoe McCorkle tombstone for my family history website. Please check to see how I plan to use the photo.

Thank you.

Absolutely amazing that you found these photos! They are my husband's 2x grandparents! It is breath taking to see these after years of trying to find photos from distant cousins and finding nothing. Bless you for all your hard work. If there is anything we can do to help you if you have connections in the mid-west I will do what I can.

Many thanks for the additional information. It really "fleshes out" the memorial, and your wonderful old photo adds a nice human touch.

By the way, if you're a family member I would urge you to contact Riverview Abbey Mausoleum and place a repair request for the missing letters on the inscription. It seems disrespectful to the deceased to have only a partial name on their grave marker, but under the rules only a family member can ask for replacement letters.

Thanks again!
