Sheila White Moore
Barbara Steen
She is not listed in the Vadhon Beachcomber newspaper'so obituaries. But I found this that might help. She might have moved to Hawaii after her husband died.
Steen, Max Monday, 21 Dec 2009 Vashon-Maury Island Beachcomber Vashon-Maury Island
Max Allan Steen, born on Vashon Island on Aug. 2, 1929, to Lola Jane and Garner Steen, died Dec. 21, 2009, on Vashon, where he had lived his 80 years.
At age 14, he began working for the Beall Greenhouse Company and stayed there for 38 years. When the company closed, he worked for the Bacchus Lumber Company until 1990 when he retired. He never moved from Vashon and lived in the same house all but five years of his life. He graduated from Vashon High School in 1947 and married his school sweetheart in 1950.
A charter member of Vashon Island Golf & Country Club, he enjoyed golf and making new friends. Steen was a member of Vashon Sportsmen’s Club, Teamster Union 117 and Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Association.
His friends remember him as a very quiet, easygoing, methodical, hard-working man who had a good sense of humor.
During his last five days he was cared for at Island Elder Care, along with the “angels” of Providence Hospice of Seattle.
He is survived by his family: Barbara, his wife of 59 years, son Gordon of Kailua, Hawaii, daughter Marsha (Alan) Berry of Palm Springs, Calif., grandsons Justin (Kelly) Berry, Christopher (Michelle) Steen, granddaughter Kayla Berry and two great-grandchildren, Joseph and Lillian. He leaves a sister, Marjorie Lou Andersen of Bainbridge Island, and brother Gordon (Peg) Steen of Vashon and extended family Rex and Trish Hilderman, Nali Hilderman, Emily (Joshua) Merchant and Andy Hilderman, as well as nieces Jenny Donohue and Lisa Steen and nephews David and Morgan Andersen.
A private graveside service was held Dec. 29, 2009, followed by a public memorial service at Vashon United Methodist Church.

Hi. I've never run across any evidence that John was born in Guilford. Can you tell me the source of your evidence before I change it? I know he was born in Jo Daviess County but have never seen a city name. Thanks!

RE: William Dunstan 119148373
I would love photos of Lavinia & William Dunstan's gravestones if you remember. You can just add them to their memorials if it's no trouble.
It is really difficult to find burials in England compared to the US. They don't usually even put the burial location on the Death certificates over there in ENG. :-( And very few newspapers with obit.s. Bummer...

RE: Perkins in Johnsville

I've been tracing all the descendants - male and female - of a Captain Henry Hunter of Bristol, Maine, right down to the present. Edward Warren Perkins was a great-grandson, the only surviving child of Margaret More (Hunter) Perkins.

I notice several contributors on ancestry have suggested Edward's father, John Warren Perkins, died after 1910, but haven't found anyone with the date yet. His obituary, with a nice write-up says he died in New Rochelle, N.Y., 30 Oct 1911. I can send it to you if you like (and send your snail or e-mail address) or can send a link to it (the obit) on-line.

Are you related?

Brethren cemetery
Barry -
Glad to help with the headstone photos. I didn't help with the remounting and cleaning of the headstones - that was a project started in 2011 by friends of the cemetery, and continues to this day. Due to a foot injury in 2012 I'm only now getting out to some of the rural cemeteries to work on getting photos. Brethren-Dunkard was near the top of my list for this summer. I need to go back out this weekend to spot some headstones that I missed the past few days, but otherwise most everyone with known headstones will be accounted for.

Hi Barry,

Many thanks for the great Hocking/Champion headstone photos you added !!! I'm going to copy them to my family tree, as well as send the Hocking ones to my cousin Bill Hocking in Sacramento - he'll be delighted.

Jeff :)

RE: Leife Farmer
Many thanks Barry for the informative note - really appreciate you getting back with me and for the updates on Life's first two wives.

As I'm not related to the family, everything I have on Life Farmer is on his memorial that I maintain in the Cloverdale Cemetery - memorial 16226995.

When you have a chance, please take a look. Then I'll be eager to hear what you might find on your home computer.

In the meantime, enjoy safe travels!
