RE: Martha Emily Little Nicholson
Hi Martin:
I have put the transcription for Martha's headstone on Find A Grave - as best as I can read it. There are two words in the poem at the end that I can't make out entirely though. I was trying to locate the original photo, but wasn't able to - I'll keep looking in my photo files though.

Thomas W. Porter
I will gladly add any information to Thomas's memorial that you can find!

Was he an Early Oregonian [arrived before 1854]. Where did he live before arriving here? Did he have an Oregon Donation Land Claim? If so what do those records show? What was his occupation?

You sound like you know more than you are willing to write about. I want to hear more about him. Please, add to his bio. Let us get to know a little about him. Have you checked for an obit. You can search online in old Oregon newspapers. Sometimes you can strike gold in the old newspapers.

Thank you, Martin Burrell

Please read the information about John's mother in her memorial, and you will see how & why the family was in captivity.

RE: Ganger Family Cemetery
Hello Mr Burrell,
Looks like you have crossed paths with me once again.
I have never heard of it being called the Burt Cemetery before. I think it was called that before it was changed to Ganger family cemetery?
Did you know the Carus Cemetery started out as the Graham Cemetery. The Carus cemetery is not going to be changed to Graham Cemetery as it was first called. It is going to stay the Carus Cemetery. I am sure you know that Lincoln Memorial Cemetery started out as Mt. Scott Cemetery, right? It is not going to be changed back. It is most surely going to stay Lincoln Memorial probably until the world comes to an end?!
Did you know that there is not one single solitary person in the State of Oregon death index with the name Genger? There are a whole bunch of Ganger's though. I did a whole bunch of research on that family for fun. One of the Ganger's lived just down the road from where I was born and grew up in Canby, OR. He was most surely John Ganger and not Genger. His daughter lived in Canby as well.
You did find a funeral notice for a Lester Genger. That was a nice find for you but does that one funeral notice give reason for all the rest of the Ganger's to be changed to Genger as well? His notice did not say what the name of the cemetery he was being buried in was though. It just said where the cemetery was.
I really did not need another research project right now as if I don't have enough of them already! I am going to work on it though. I sent a message to someone in Roseburg to ask them about this cemetery and what they know about it and what records if any there are on it.
I would love to change it to Burt Cemetery because one set of my Great Grandparent's from Scotland were Burts. They moved to Oregon City and never lived in Roseburg area, ever.
I am sure you know what a pain it is for there to be more than one spelling of a name in the very same family and people argue and argue over which is right and often times there are several different spellings of a name in the same family.
You want me to just change Mary Ganger's name to Mary Genger. Why do you want me to do that? Did you know she is listed on the 1850, the 1860, the 1870 AND the 1880 censuses as Mary Ganger and then on the 1900 census she is listed as Mary Genger. Did you ever think that maybe somebody made a mistake on that 1900 census and spelled her name wrong? To me the "majority rules" often times and 4 censuses against one, the 4 censuses win and the one different census loses. :-]
I will see what I can find out about it though but I won't promise anything, yet.

Martin - I added her middle name from the info you sent (Oregon Marriage record) = "Miss Edith Elora Lyster was married at the age of 18 years, on *** etc". Now you send edit changing back to "E" - care to explain or do I reject?

RE: James Stephenson Gray
I have connected James Stephenson Gray to his parents. I thought you would be interested in knowing that there is a photograph of James Gray and his wife at the White Clover Grange in Nehalem, Oregon. One of these days I'll get over and photograph it and put it with the his grave memorial.

Hey Martin,

Could you please remove the scanned obit from the memorial I have supplied the number for?
