RE: Eles Ann Vorhies
Thank you again!

I have added the plot information to their memorials, and also removed the photo request for Nathan's. I put a note on his that it is apparently unmarked.

RE: Eles Ann Vorhies
Does the map happen to indicate plot numbers for Nathan and Ellice which could be added to their memorials, to make it easier for other researchers to find them?

Thanks again!

Ellice Voorhees photo request
Darcy,

Thank you very much for your work on this request! I'm sure that you have found the right person, since the date of birth is exactly what is given in a listing of Oregon pioneers compiled by the Oregon State archives. I think the death date I gave was someone's guess posted at RootsWeb.

As for the spelling of her name, that is all over the map on the records that I have found also. Since her first name was out of the ordinary, people often would spell it phonetically, which may have been the case with the stone carver. And I don't think that the family had agreed upon a standardized spelling of the surname by that time -- even a simple name like mine (Wilson) had variant spellings during that era, most commonly "Willson".

Thanks again, and have a great weekend!

Hi, Darcy. I just created a memorial for Melanie at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=121878413 if you're interested.
