Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband and I enjoy being photo volunteers. I use Find-A-Grave to research my family's genealogy and maintain and/or create their sites when possible. I like to include biographical sketches, family links and photos in hopes that will help others who are researching the same lines. I am researching Porter, VanPatten, Starns, Lewis, Hogg, Lawson, Kolp, Proctor, Childs, McCoy, Aplington, Bruner and more. If you see errors please let me know.

moving Findagrave memorials
You have moved many Findagrave memorials from another cemetery into Williamette National Cemetery. Memorials already existed in Williamette. The memorial that is kept is the first memorial in the correct cemetery. We do have a policy where a memorial can be moved from a burial unknown to a correct cemetery within thirty days, on recent death memorials. Please remove these memorials and add any updates via the edit tab. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

RE: Henry Ferguson
Thanks so much for adding the death certificate. Based on the age on the death certificate (79) he would have been born around 1853. That likely rules him out as the husband of Isabelle, since she was born in 1885. She "fibbed" several times about her age when she married, but always younger. LOL!

Henry Ferguson
I wondered how you came up with a birth year for Henry Ferguson Find A Grave Memorial# 86704084. The Oregon record I saw didn't give a date for his birth. I have been trying to figure out if he was the Henry Ferguson who married my grandfather's cousin in 1930. By the 1940 census she was married to someone else, so I think this might be the Henry Ferguson she married. If there is a death certificate does it give the spouse's name? She went by the nickname "Hazel", her Find A Grave memorial is # 146772930. I'd really appreciate any help I can get to answer the question about what happened to her third husband.
Thanks, Debi Lowe Myers

Alice Grace Anderson Ratcliff
Thank you for all the information concerning Alice Grace. She may be a sister to my husband's grandfather, William 'Willie' Anderson. Since William Anderson was supposedly dropped off at a Children's Home in Lancaster, Oh, the family knows almost nothing about him. If you have more information or a source where we could do some family research that you can share, we would be enternally grateful! Again thank you for your hard work and precious information that you share with families. God Bless!

Good morning. I agree that your memorial was better, so I deleted the one I had even though mine was posted first.

OSH Memorials
Hello Phyllis, I'm so pleased to see the various memorials that you've researched and added to. They add life to these folks who were unfortunately left at the hospital. I would like to help research them further and find family members who may want to take them back into their families. Can you please respond as to how I can work with you to accomplish this? Thank you, Janet Johanson
