Bio and Links
Bio Photo Originally a Downeaster from Maine, I married a Montanan and transplanted my roots to Washington State. (How does a girl from Maine meet a guy from Montana? --in the British West Indies, of course. We were both Peace Corps Volunteers.)

As a "Maineac" I claim Acadian heritage from the Landry branch of my tree but am also interested in the following families of Washington and Hancock Counties, Maine: Huntley, McDevitt, Hodgkins, Wakefield, Sinclair, Cochran, Bailey, Higgins, Messer, Drew, Smith, Shaw, Young, Booth, Cook and Carnon/Carmon/Carman (to name just a few families of my bloodline.)

My husband is directly related to West Virginian Carters and Ashleys, Swedish Petersons who homesteaded in Ontario and Norwegian Paulsons from Minnesota.

My maternal grandparents settled in Woodland (Baileyville) in 1912, my mother and uncles were born there, and I was raised less than a mile from my grandmother's home. Most of my research has centered on cemeteries in Codyville, Topsfield, Princeton, Woodland, Alexander, Crawford and Wesley. Although my research began with family, I have created many memorials to honor classmates and friends, including people who worked with my father in the mill, people my mother cared for as a nurse, my parents' extensive Grange connections, and, occasionally, someone who was once simply nice to me. It's been a sentimental journey, sometimes bittersweet.

Whenever possible, I add family links, genealogy, and photos to the memorials I have created. My mother saved her mother's photo albums and I have saved Mom's. I also have Mom's collection of obituaries. You may copy any photos I have posted but please give me the courtesy of crediting them to me. Credit rewards my efforts and also allows people who view your work to track back to me and perhaps share corrections or updates, which I welcome.

Please remember that people who create memorials for Find A Grave are volunteers. Our efforts cost time and money. I have spent hundreds of hours researching genealogy and hours of vacation time photographing headstones. Gas costs as does the subscription to an ancestry site. Find A Grave is a free resource and that fact was very important in my decision to become involved. It pleases me to think that my efforts are viewable by anyone with Internet access and from any part of the world. If Find A Grave has been helpful to you, I encourage you to reciprocate the favor by committing to create memorials or photograph headstones in your own community.

Great job on your memorials. Your investment of yourself in the memorials you create will always be a great asset to others.

Thanks for the dedication!

RE: Vernal Steen
I would love one! Thank you! I cannot find a burial record for Vernal on Find A Grave. I believe he is buried in the same cemetary. Any idea on how I can find out and get a record added? He passed in 1959 and I was never able to meet him since I wasn't born until 1962.

Thank you so much for your help!

RE: cemetery changed
You're welcome! Please let me know if there are any family memorials that I've created that you'd like me to transfer to your care. I'd be more than happy to do it.

RE: Raymond B Dinsmore # 93051469
D there was a 1st marriage (16 Mar 1935) but I also found the Arlene Freda Denbow marriage 27 Jun 1953. Seems the 1st wife~Edith Wright remarried, too. Thanks for getting me to research it. See, Raymond & Edith had a son~George Raymond Dinsmore. I was worried i might have the wrong family. =)

Raymond B Dinsmore # 93051469
Hey, D. I got a question regarding Raymond. On his memorial his wife is listed as Arlene Dinsmore. I have him married to Edith Wright on 16 Mar 1935 in Maine, Marriages, 1892-1996 records. Could the Arlene be an error?
