|Bio and Links|
I am a retired engineer after working at GE for 32 years. I was widowed after a 58 year marriage. |
Thankfully, I am still very active and healthy at the age of 85. Most of my life I have ridden bicycles. I rode over 78,000 miles between 1980-1990 and I have walked over a million steps (yes, I kept track!) That explains the right hip replacement!
I volunteer two days a week at our local museum photographing items for archiving. I also volunteer two hours a week at our hospice thrift store and, of course, spend endless hours on FAG!
I became interested in Find A Grave when I was working in genealogy with my significant other, Joyce Larsen, and we discovered this site.
When I take photographs, I take a broom, a knife for trimming around the edges and often get down on my knees and sometimes my stomach to get a good photo. I really hate to see photos with mud or leaves and grass on the headstone (especially the military ones!)
I will be happy to transfer a relative to you, or make corrections/additions. Please use the EDIT BUTTON on "Correction Requests" for any changes and on transfers please INCLUDE YOUR ID NUMBER.

|Brian Tabor||Grace Crooks|
Hello, you added a photo to the grave of Grace Crooks, buried Prosser, WA. (#43344654). First of all, the original submitter has confused the wives of Samuel Crooks and I've just sent a message to that person. His first wife was Grace Putnam (who died in Portland, OR in 1931, they were divorced). His second wife was Grace Swalley who is buried with him in Prosser. The photo you submitted shows a lady who would be much older than someone born in the 1870s or 1880s. Can you identify the exact identity? I am a Putnam researcher. Thank you.

Your edit request to add a middle name was declined because I could not verify its accuracy and you did not provide a document proving it to be accurate when asked. I will be happy to reconsider if you can provide a document such as a birth or death certificate with his middle name.

|Patrick Quinn||Back again RE: Gowen|
I am still a little confused. As far as I know, Thomas Jefferson Gowen was married only once to Lucinda Floyd in 1875 and had Mary, John, and Pearl.
|Patrick Quinn||Back from Lloker RE: Gowen -|
Yes it is.
|Patrick Quinn||RE: Gowen -|
I am talking about Memorial# 80385009. I say this because you left a message on my great great grandmother Pearl Gowen's profile saying she was your great aunt. Apparently you are descended from one William Gowen Sr who is supposed to be the son of Thomas Jefferson Gowen and Lucinda Floyd and I have no proof that this is the case.

There is no proof that William Gowen is the child of Thomas and Lucinda. He is in no family pictures I have or have seen. Can you provide some documentation? Thanks.
Thank you for your edit request. I would greatly appreciate it if you would send me documentation that Wesley is his middle name as I have been unable to verify that.

Would you please transfer this memorial to me? This is my husband's great grandfather and I have more information to add.

According to my family notes, Susan Amelia Lanchester was the wife of Homer A Van Amburg, Eli Ramsbottom, and Nathaniel Griffin. Her parents were Robert Preston Lanchester and Susan Sophia Lewis. The family notes also say that she died from burns at farm. I do not know where she is buried, but maybe these notes will help. Good luck in your search.
