Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm hoping to find family members. My grandmother died in 1987 and I was only 15. She took with her the family history. I've been on the hunt the last couple years to find relatives. And I'm hoping I can find people who can share stories, photos etc with me. Fred D. Harrison & Maggie (Young) Harrison, of Waurika, OK, are my great-grandparents. (Surnames: Harrison, Young, Garrett, Shirley) If you have ANY info please email me. Thank you! =)

I'm also trying to figure out who my biological grandpa is.

Surnames for my mother's side...Kluge of Norway, Turner and Wilson

Also, working on my husband's family tree. Looking for relatives with the surname Ryan of Chicago & Ireland. Along with surname Bevens, Vancouver, WA area, Matchette, Pickard, Calkin & Gibson.

(Please feel free to copy any photo I've taken or email me & I will be happy to email you a copy. Or please, request a transfer, I'm happy to transfer any NON-family members.)

Regarding photo request in Calvary cemetery located in Lakewood WA
Office staff are quoting to photo request volunteers that they will be charging them to give locations of burials. As this cemetery was fully photo documented two years ago, chances are that your request cannot be fulfilled due to: A) Illegible temporary maker or a buried marker and B) No marker at all. If you wish your request to be honored, you will have to contact the office and inquire as to location.

This will take you to the Jefferson County Index
to Cemetery Lists and you will see that Hastings Cemetery is #21. Back up one step and you can then look through the list of "H" names and see if you find her there.
Good luck.....Jean

For those looking for links all the way back to William Gager, my tree on Ancestry has info from then until the present. I am married in to the Gager clan, and have a published book written by Edmund Gager called "The Gager Family". There are probably 400-500 Gager descendants in this book,and I am laboriously transferring them to Ancestry.

The book only traces the male heirs of the Gager name, with their wives and both male and female offspring.

I have heard about the connection to Princess Diana through the Spencer line. Did you know there is a connection to four US presidents? (John Adams, John Q. Adams, Teddy Roosevelt, and FDR).

If anyone wants more info, please contact me via e-mail at

Hi Karen,

I transferred their memorials to you. For future reference, the easiest way to transfer and accomplish a transfer is to use the edit tab. This will provide a direct link to both your profile with member number and to the memorial that you want transferred. As a little extra courtesy to make it even easier for the person doing the transfer, you can include your member number in the body of the transfer request so they don't have to go to your profile to get it. It is not a big deal for me, but some people are so busy that they will ignore transfer requests unless they come via the edit tab.

I remember Speck Harrison from when I was a little boy growing up in Waurika. He owned one of the local liquor stores at the time. I went to school with his younger daughter Shirley, although she was several years older than I. I don't remember the older daughter. I guess she had graduated before I started to school.

Best wishes and good luck in your genealogical endeavors!

You're welcome.
I'm assuming that Martha is part of your family... but if you are also interested in Clifford ... I also photographed and posted his marker. He was an interesting person, Married at least 3 times... and maybe 1 more... He and his wife, Louise, had a baby that died aged 1 1/2 yrs and is buried next to Cliff & Martha...
if any of these are your relations... let me know. I'll happily transfer.

Clarke Graves - Woodlawn Cemetery
Hi Karen,
I searched for the headstones of Margaret and Royal Clarke and found a few other people (Miller's) buried in the same plot. I'm not sure if they are related, but photographed them just incase. I'm thinking they might be related since "Royal" is not a common first name (not that I know of anyway, lol) and buried next to Royal Clarke is Royal Clark Miller. Here is who I found:

Southern Garden, Lot 842,

Space 6: Margaret J. Clarke
Space 5: Royal W. Clarke
Space 4: Royal Clark Miller age 79, d. 6/22/1979
Space 3: Myra Jane Miller age 72, d. 7/2/1934
Space 2: William H. Miller age 87, d. 11/25/1937

I also looked for Norman and Mary Clarke buried in the cemetery incase they are related. They, however, did not have headstones. According to cemetery records Norman is buried in the same plot as Juana Pazo and Mary is buried to the left of that plot. I will place photos on all of the memorials. If you would like the photos emailed to you just let me know.

Have a good evening!
