Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started hanging out in cemeteries while doing family research. Currently, I'm focusing on Myers and Owen/Owens mostly in Callaway, Audrain and Atchison County, Missouri and Bertels in Stark and Summit County, Ohio.

When I take a photo for my memorials or as a volunteer, I usually take photos of nearby headstones and add them also. When requested and as time allows, I will also check for obits at the local library if the specific death or burial date is known. My library is happily located in the block between my job and my parking spot.

The state of Washington has a fantastic digital archive online. If you are looking in Washington, you should definitely check here:

The picture you posted does not belong to Emil. See the 2 other photos members posted. Would you please remove it. Thank you.

Believe you made a typo on this memorial. Elmo's surname is Most, not Barber. Thanks for updating.

Awesome photo!
Thanks so much for posting the photo of Otha Caldwell. I am so glad to get her data and know more about her. Her mother, Amanda Emeline Wood was a sister of my James William Curtis Wood. My branch of the family has been DNA tested and trying to learn more about the ancestry of our Woods. Thanks again. :-)

Dear Vera Marie,
I just found the memorial for my great Aunt Beatrice Simplot Ederer #107209916 and I would very much like to have her grave transferred to me if you are not a relative and there is not another closer relative. She is the sister of my Grandmother, Ethel Simplot. My Find a Grave number is #47823537 for Mary Months. Thanks!

I posted Mary's obit as a caption under the headstone photo.

RE: Mary Jo Biddle
Hi Vera - You are probably correct that it is a office error. I knew Mary and Bill (Quentin). Mary did die in March of 1985. I will try and find an obit at the library. Her creamains are on top of Grave 7, which is Shirley. Her birthdate, according to Social Security is October 23, 1929. If I am able to find an obit I will forward it to you. Earl

RE: Eva Weston
Hello Vera,
Thank you so much for the information and the pictures you took!!! It meant soooo much to me since I will probably never get to visit out there!!
Vera I seen where you posted that George Weston was buried in the Nooksack Cemetary. He IS the husband to Eva Weston and I would love to see any pictures of his grave or ANY information you can find on him. I am stuck at a brick wall with him and can't find any of his family (mother, father, sisters or brothers.
Thank you so much Vera!!! All you do is sooo appreciated!!!
