RE: Bird Family at St Johns
When I visited the Bird plot last year I photographed all the markers that were visible in the plot and the area nearby. Sorry the remaining requests couldn't be filled.

Find A Grave Memorial# 95958574
Are you sure Andrew is buried here? I tried to get a photo for his memorial.... and received the following information

The general problem they reported is:
Cemetery office has no record of this person

They also reported, specifically:
I probed Lots 32 & 33 to a depth of 12", every four to five inches, and did not find a headstone or cemetery locator for this Andrew. The rest of the Dufurs are where they're supposed to be - except for Arabelle. Metro records of burials in Lone Fir don't have entries for Andrew or Arabelle (as Dufur or any creative misspelling). Are you sure he is in Lone Fir? This is not the first time I've claimed a photo request for this person, I remain unable to find his resting place.

Due to this problem, we believe that this photo request can not be fulfilled. As a result, we are removing it. If you can fix the problems that were reported and believe a photo can be acquired, please feel free to make a new request.

Arabelle Dufur in Lone Fir
I looked for Arabelle yesterday when I was fulfilling a photo request for Andrew Dufur. I don't find her in Metro records - if there's a headstone, it's deeper than 12", and there's no mention of her on the obelisk. Where did you find information to create a memorial? What am I missing? Thank you.

I just got confused over the two Mary Holschers, one not listed as Holscher.

Samuel Gentile
Samuel and Gerry Gentile are interred in Block 3, Lot 21/22 of the cemetery. The headstone is darkened quite a bit and was hard to read in the light of the day the photo was taken. The City of Cosmopolis has a record of their daughter, Richeelyn Mae, being buried in the cemetery but graves in that section were not found.

RE: Frieda Klann
Christoph, I noticed there were two Frieda Klanns at that cemetery, dated 1903-1926 and 1903-1962. At first I thought there was a typo until I realized there really were two Friedas. I created a memorial for the other one and added a photo for it, too. Joanne

I forgot to mention that Dottie's last name is incorrect on her tombstone photo, not on the list for the Flett cemetery.

Please correct spelling for Dottie. Her last name is Flett, not Fleet.

Got it re cremation and possibly no marker. But if you are willing, I suggest you contact Greenwood Hills Cemetery Assoc. They are volunteers so will respond to family inquiries, but discourage volunteer inquiries. Their email: Good luck!

Need More on William Kolb
Trying to fulfill your request for KOLB (1859-1930) at Greenwood Hills Cemetery. The name WILLIAM KOLB (or variations KALB, KOLE, etc) do not exist in the printed index available to the public. GHills Cemetery Assoc requests that the family contact for further info on Section, Lot, etc. Volunteers cannot do so. Here's the link:
Contact me with additional info if you get any!

Kelly Burton
Henry & Ethel Beach Photo Request
I volunteered to fulfill your photo request at the Fir Law Cemetery in Washington County, Oregon. I was denied the access to take pictures of the headstones in the cemetery by the Staff. The reason, I didn't have permission from the family, or was not a family member. So, in order to take a photo of the headstone for you. I must have a written request, printed, that I can submit to Cemetery Staff. If you will write a brief note, explaining your relationship to the deceased, and permission to photograph the headstone, I would be happy to fulfill your request.

Normally I would just wonder the cemetery, and take pictures without approaching the staff, but there are 4000 interments, so I unfortunately need their help in locating your specific headstone.

As soon as I get your message, I will go and take photos.

Thanks for YOUR help.

RE: John Garnold / Lone Fir
Apparently you didn't read the caption that I included with the photograph. There is no marker for John Garnold, but his grave is located exactly halfway between the markers in the photo that I posted. I thought that you might like to have that bit of documentation. If you don't want it, I'll remove both the photo and its caption.
FindAGrave directs photo volunteers to do nothing to a burial site beyond brushing away loose grave or leaves, so I cannot fulfill your request to dig at the site in hopes of finding a buried marker. Most of the graves in this part of the cemetery are unmarked.

Hoffmans in Coos County
Yes, I am related. I don't know who inherited Nellie Hoffman's research papers. Nellie outlived both of her husbands and all three of her children. When she passed away in a care facility, she had already disposed of most of her personal property and kept only what she thought she'd need in her room. She was close to a couple of her nieces, so that would be my best guess. Nellie was related to just about every other person in Coos County, either by blood or marriage. Nellie's health was pretty good and her mind was intact right up until the day she died. Nellie viewed the care facility as her home, where she held court. She was well-loved.

Am happy to transfer her to you. It was originally done by someone who made many errors on memorials in this cemetery. I have not been able to delete incorrect photos, but perhaps you will have more skill! Jean

RE: Doran Hougham burial site
Christoph, I just found a memorial for Mr Houghan and it is showing Masonic Memorial Park. I imagine these 2 sites need to be merged. Do you know how to do this? If not I can find help to get it done.

Christoph, I have added a photo of the Masonic Memorial Park to the site. The Odd Fellows photo is still on the site. Would you please let the family know I have added info or description to the photo's? Thank you, Gail

Doran Hougham burial site
Christoph, I just photo'd the Hougham headstone. It is not located in the Odd Fellows cemetery. It is actually located in the Masonic Memorial Park. This area has 3 cemetery's that share the same location. There are no fences separating the parks.This has occurred at the three parks quite often. Can you please share this with the family and I will see if I can add a photo of the Masonic sign to the site.
Thank you, Gail

Bolin Baker Cemetery
I wish I could help, but I live in KS. We spent a week in Linn Co. taking photos of graves throughout the county - mostly Baker & McCollum. The gentlehman who lives there now took us out to the cemetery otherwise we would never have found it. The grass is 4 or 5 ft high and the graves are in some trees. We only found a few stones which we photographed. His name was Steve, but I don't know his last name. He was wonderful to us, as was his wife Catherine. She told me she was born in the house there. Steve's mother lives near by. I think the only time one could locate all the stones would be early spring. I'm so sorry I can't be of more help. Bolin Baker was my 1st cousin 4X removed. We also met Darwin Bunch who was related to Elizabeth Bunch Baker. He an his wife also helped us a lot & took us to the G W Baker Cemetery, which we would never have found either. It was in even worse condition and the stones we found were piled up under a thorn tree. I haven't gotten those pics entered yet.
Thank you for contacting me & if you ever find your info on the cemetery I would love to have a copy.

RE: New Tacoma
The Old Tacoma Cemetery was founded in 1874 and is in Taocma and The New Tacoma Cemetery was later and is in University Place, WA. Both cemeteries are owned by the same company. But, Old Tacoma is New Tacoma's parent, basically.

It's a good thing that I'm a sleuth.....most voluneers would have stopped at 'she's not here'
