Hi...there is an online genealogy request form... or you can call the office...their index cards usually tell death date, cause of death, church and funeral home...surprisingly not birthdates...hope that helps

James O. and Minerva (Cook) Elrod
Today I posted photos to your memorials for James Orville Cook and Minerva (Cook) Elrod, who are buried in Riverview Cemetery, Portland, Oregon. You will note that Minerva's year of birth is given as 1875 on her grave marker.

RE: Thank you
Note I added memorials for other Burrow family members who had stones in that family plot. One was named John A Burrows -- died in infancy.

RE: Truman Williams

I am not related. My granddaughter is by marriage on her father's side. I was doing family history. I left a candle on his death date as I try to do for many that are related to my family in some way.

If there is a issue with this please let me know why.

RE: Octavia Conley
You are so welcome! What do you think about the picture of the tree covering her headstone? I placed it on their memorial pages so the family can contact the cemetery and have it cut back. I found so many Conley headstones and was determined to locate Octavia. Trying to hold the tree branches back and take a picture was a little tricky to say the least but was well worth the struggle!! Enjoy! Sherri

RE: George Hillman Black Photo
Alas, we searched diligently, but there is no marker. My sister and I have just begun finding all the local family plots to photograph the headstones and try to do some volunteer photos while at any given cemetery...and often there are no headstones to document. We asked at Ocean View why so many people do not have a marker (in the old sections we were in, I don't think even half the plots have a headstone). They replied that many families can't bear to go through the process of picking one out when the loss is fresh, and think they may get around to it, but never do. And I think expense certainly has an impact as well...during times of hardship or if there was never a lot of money, but plenty of mouths to feed, a headstone may be simply unaffordable.

That said, it is strangely disappointing to stand at a plot location and find no marker. For me, seeing the stone helps me feel a connection, and also gives me the sense the loved ones are properly tucked in. I will be sure to pre-pay for my resting spot and marker, and make all the decisions that my children may struggle with, having just lost me!

RE: Mary Leigh
When it stops raining (Yes, we finally are receiving rain!) I will take photos of other headstones with Charles Leigh (d. Feb 12, 1892 age 77 yr 1 mo, ?days) on one side, Susan (sister?) Amelia (d. 1863 age 7 yr 10 mo 2? days)and Sara H.M. Leigh (1825? - 1906?) on third side. It is sort of difficult to read since very worn, which is next to John Leigh (1849-1932) and Ida Leigh (1847-1924).

RE: Rausch family
For the Veteran's Headstone...Talk to the VA reguarding this in how to get it placed; as it should be a Free Issued's part of his burial.

Added by Syl on May 14, 2012 10:09 PM

RE: Rausch family
When you get the headstones ordered, put me on your list of friends and let me know; so I can go back and get your headstone pictures. You don't have to re-request headstone picture for this family...I'll be more than happy to get those for you.

Rausch at All Souls Cemet
I'm sorry to say-Francis, Joseph, Theodore & Salva are all Unmarked Graves. I had three people on grounds to verify my finding just to make sure I did the navagation of headstone search right; what I did do is take pictures of their location markers; before I proceed; I ask, would you like these pictures on their Memorial site?

I am sorry but the town of Carlton is not available in the Findagrave drop down list. It must be considered a "defunct" place.

RE: I sent a message to the WRONG perons
I have made the links of all the Cooks that I have added to Find-A-Grave. I do not have information to link other Cooks/etc. beyond those that I have added. As I asked previously, please e-mail me a list of anything else you have or if you notice anything that I might have accidentally done incorrectly. If you don't want to e-mail me then please respond back to this message with the list as I am not currently receiving any other messages.

Thank you,

RE: Adding Information or Transferring Memorials
Bill (right?),
Please accept my appoligies. I have had some problems due to viruses (related to this website) and have not received any of the requests that you mentioned. I just logged in tonight and saw your message and wanted to touch base with you.

I am excited to here of all of the connections you state that have been identified.

Please bare with me as I think out loud.

Although I trust that you know what you are talking about and are confident with the information that you have compilied I have not to date made the same connections and feel reluctantance to make changes without having gathered the support. I am sure you can understand this as you have obviously been doing this research for a while yourself (and a lot longer then me, I am sure). I also would have concerns about being able to support the conections if someone else argues that they are incorrect. At the same time, I do not want to turnover anything that I have identified and created as it is my work and my relatives too and I want to identify and make the appropriate connections wether they are what you have identified of something different. Please understand, I have been doing this for a short time and am learning my way through the process. I have worked through another website and "taken" other people's identified relationships and had people subsequentally copy me but later learned that they were wrong and I feel guilty for having been part of the chain of mistakes. I have also learned more, although not enough, about proper sourcing, a.k.a. primary vs. secondaery etc.

Having said/thought all of this, and still "thinking out loud", I am not sure where this leaves us. I am not comfortable with out and out asking you to prove everything. I would like to remain friends/relatives and would welcome the opportunity to share information if you would be willing.

Alright, I have been thinking in circles (faster then I can type my thoughts) and am going back to an earlier comment. I trust you know more then I do and am willing therefore to make some connections as I do not want to hold you/others up. Can you send me a list, preferrably to my e-mail: and give me some time to do so (give me about a week). I don't believe it will take that long but just so I can make a commitment to you as I do have guests from out of town for several more days. If I do find connections to be different based on my research then I reserve the right to make changes at that time though. If you are comfortable with sending me some of the support/documentation/etc. then that would hopefully aleviate my concerns and would be greatly appreciated. As I said before, I would be willing to reciprocate if I have anything of interest to you (obviously acknowledging that you are further along then I am but maybe I have something now or in the future?). I also am interested in building relationships with relatives over time and have had success with some like minded family.

Again Bill (I hope I have your name correct), please accept my appoligies for any delays and thanks for "listening"/understanding my concerns.

I have added some info to the Cooke family members buried at Mount Hope Cemetery, Topeka. I will look for an obit for Clarence Cooke, who died in 1904, tomorrow.

I made corrections and added the information you provided. I also transferred them both to you (as I have no relationship to them at all)- I hope that's okay. Good luck with you research!

RE: Anson and Katie Cooke, Mount Hope Cemetery, Topeka
I have added the info from the cemetery records to the pages of Anson & Katie Cooke.

There are other Cooke family members in the cemetery:
Charles L. Cooke, 1885-1963
Clarence Edwin Cooke, died 1904
Wilbur Walter Cooke, died 1956

When Clarence died in 1904, his place of residence was given as Mitchell County, Kansas.

I would bet your marriage place for Anson and Katie is really Beloit, Mitchell County, Kansas.
