|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.

Hello, I know a little about her. I know she married my grandfather Frank Erbert Davey in 1940.
Elizabeth "Libbie" C Meredith was her maiden name. She is listed on the 1930 census as widowed and working as a live house keeper for some rich cattle rancher in Yakima.
I believe she was was from the the upper midwest.
Her marker is a state provided marker from what I understand. I searched for and obituary but couldn't find anything open source.
Frank Davey married three times , once in 1909 Portland, which resulted in a baby girl, then to my maternal grandmother Joyce Batson in 1920 (3 girls)Wenatchee, and then "Libbie" Meredith in 1940 in Seattle. Libbie may have had family in Seattle where they married, because they didn't live there. Frank moved all over the state as he followed his work in carpentry. Either that or he just liked to roam around. Died in Spokane buried with family in Grandview.

Thank you for your edit request. Please provide birth and/or death certificates that name his parents and his wife as I have been unable to verify your request. An obituary may also have that information. There are many John and John W. Scarbroughs born in the right time period which make it difficult to identify his parents. Having those certificates would also help identify his birth and death locations which would help verify who his parents were. To link his suggested wife a marriage certificate would help especially since her death certificate and census records name her husband as Wesley or Wesley E. Scarbrough.

|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.
