Oscar & Marie Petterson memorials
I cannot thank you enough for the information about my great great grandparents!
Our family has been in Idaho for five generations now. To learn the whereabouts of our ancestors' resting place, even to the exact location of their graves, is very gratifying. I have a daughter living in Portland who is anxious to find them in the cemetery. To my knowledge, it may be the first time a descendant has visited their graves in all those years.
May God bless you for your kindness in serving so many people unknown to you.
Sincere Thanks,

9/3/2015: Dear INvenio: Did I understand that you have the old burial record book for Mult. Park cementery, on S. E. 82nd & Holgate?? I'm looking for a father and son, that are in the second or third row from 82nd. I don't think they have stones? Would like to know their dates & places;
The father, Efim/Mikey/Mickie, Nicoloff, Nikoloff, or Nicholoff, was abt. 30-35 years old when he died,
in Oregon someplace, probably the industrial area;
He was bn. 7/April/1887, in Chita, Russia, according to his 1917--1918 Draft Card. I've seen the death record and news clipping years ago, when he worked at the Shipyards, for Northwest Steel, in west Portland, and died from a hot electric wire. His son,Vladimere/Walter, bn in San Fran,CA;
about 1912, and died about 1914--1916, in Portland,OR, as a result of being hit by a large truck, on S.W. Hooker & Barber Blvd. There was a death certificate and news article I saw of this, a long time ago,too. I printed out the plot map from the metro site. The wife/mother is their, too. She was Vera Williams, who died in 1940; Another son/brother, Alex/Allan, born, 1910, in Kapaa, Kaauai, Hawaii, died near Aberdeen or Cosmopolis, Washington in the Grays Harbor County, drown while fishing with another young child who, died, too. He was one month from his 8th birthday,(8/1918) and the other boy was only 5 years old. I'm a member of the Oregon Archives, here in Salem, if we can share or trade our findings??? We can help each other if possible. Let me know what you know that can help both of us. Please contact me with any names,
dates, places, or where I might go to get more facts, if you can. Thank you for any help.

Thank both of you so very much for all you do for others through this work with Find A Grave. I have been on my genealogy journey since the 1980's and because of age and health can no longer visit cemeteries. It means a lot to me to see the graves and markers. I hope you won't mind my making copies of your photos for my family files. I am fighting so hard trying to get all of my family history verified and on Ancestry and Family Tree Maker so that my descendants and others who may be connected may be able to see their heritage. It is a continuing effort to verify the things that I already have on my file. God bless you both in every effort you make to help others. I hope everybody appreciates you as much as I do.

Hi Guys,

Someone has uploaded 5 incorrect photos of grave memorials to her posting. I have left him a public message requesting that these be removed so I can upload the correct one. I have no idea what this guy was doing, uploading the Palmers that he could find?

I first want to say thank you. I was so happy to find and see a memorial for my uncle, Thomas Henry Blencoe # 47369798. I have his parents and siblings and would love to add him to my memorials. Would you please consider in making a transfer to me?

Thank you Debbie Blencoe-Lund

Thank you very much for the picture of my birth mothers last husband.I was hoping she may have been buried beside him. She has been an extreme challenge to locate her final resting place. I really appreciate your work finding memorials! Thanks again and may God bless You.

RE: IOOF photos
Dear Eric & David,
Sorry, but I forgot that those photos are on my other cell phone that I had to use temporarily while waiting for my "new" cell phone to be fixed (needed a new charger). I'm hoping to hire my friend's son to take the "old" phone to Verizon to get all pictures downloaded so I can keep them. Will try to get IOOF pictures, such as they are, sent to you at that time. So much for progress in the computer age.

RE: Infant DeBiddle
Dear Eric,
Thanks so much for your good wishes. I was discharged on March 23rd so have been home just over a month, now, return to see my surgeon to see if I'm healed enough for a walking cast instead of a "non wgt. bearing" cast (have had five so far). He cuts the cast off, takes x-rays to see how well I'm healing, then puts on another cast. It's been 7 wks. since my surgery so am hoping for a walking cast this time around (for 4 wks.), then a support boot for @ a month. I'll never look at people in wheelchairs the same way again; so many things I take for granted are so difficult for people on wheelchairs. I'll be setting off metal detectors for the rest of my life. I'm going to try to send copies of the photos I took (from a chair) of the exhibits at the care center. Want to go back once I'm mobile again to retake the pictures. Take care and Thanks for everything you guys do.
With All Sincerity, Kathie L. Webb Blair, Portland, Oregon

Hey There,
On Aug 1, 2012, you sent me information to update for Thor Skogset. During 2012 - 13, I was ill on and off. I put requests in a file, "Findagrave Not Done," for those I couldn't get to at any given time. I found this file today. I do apologize for taking years to complete such an easy task.

Ella Hampton
Dave and Eric, My name is Dan Smith and I have been looking for my great grandmother. It turns out you had my grand uncle, William J. Hampton on Find A Grave and I received all his information From the funeral home that cared for him. The funeral home that cared for my great grandmother(if this is her)went out of business many years ago and the information is lost. She was married to Henry A. Hampton when she died and he worked for Portland city as a blacksmith. She was born 1876 in Kentucky and died in 1923 in Oregon. I believe you have her on Find A Grave(if this is her) and another grand uncle(I never new his name) who died in 1916 that I believe may be buried in the same cemetery with her. If there is anyway you could help me, I would be greatly!!!! Ella Hampton's maiden name was Lawson and her daughter(my grandmother, Marita K. (Hampton) Aleshire) only remembers her being in a wheelchair. Thankyou, Dan Smith.

Is there somewhere I can look for the information on this grave to find out who this LAURA B SMITH is? I am looking for a Laura B Smith Adam born Aug 1886 and died April 10, 1948. She was married to John Adam, who ran a printing shop in Portland, OR.

Dear David and Eric,
My apologies for sending you on a wild goose chase. I submitted the request on behalf on another person, but the information is at home on my desk top; will need to get to it when I can. Since my accident on Feb 17th, except for being at Kaiser from March 2nd to 5th (surgery), I've been at the Friendship Care Center on SE Holgate (Portland) which is operated by IOOF. They have some really great exhibits of antiques and photos regarding Portland history. I took pictures while "free wheeling" around in a wheelchair last week. They didn't turn out very well, will need to come back in a few months and take better ones. I've found it interesting that I am being cared for at an IOOF care center, considering so many of my relatives belonged to it in the past and many are buried at IOOF Cemeteries thru out the U.S. Coincidence? I think it's God working anonymously.
