I am pleased to announce that Mt Pleasant has been completely photographed. That is those stones that are visible. The photos are not posted on FAG but I check the request list against my database.|
All those photo requests are most likely unmarked or illegible grave sites.
Any memorial page I have created I have a picture of the headstone.
If you want a photo officially request one, don't bury your request in a spouse or another family members photo request.
Too many volunteers are now asking for other volunteers to do their research, please try and do your own on your time.
I take responsibility ONLY for the information obtained from the headstone unless otherwise specified by me. There are very few exceptions.
Due to the changes and procedures for adding addition information it is very time consuming to include the source. Find A Grave DOES NOT provide a way to show where the information comes from.
In light of these changes and the automated edit system, which makes it almost impossible to deny acceptance of changes and addition, I have been transferring all memorial pages to those wishing to make edits. This too has become too time consuming.
Therefore, in order to include the changes whether the information is CORRECT OR NOT I feel I am being forced to accept all edits. I hate this part because I have had quite a few people send edits only to resend two or three times in order to make corrections.
If you find errors send corrections but do not, I repeat DO NOT ask me about the information posted or hold me responsible for the additions. This goes against all genealogical best practices, but the only other solution would be to take down all the memorials and pictures I have posted.
If you find an error,double listing or double picture please let me know so I can correct the problem.
I have in the past used a picture of the cemetery gate/sign with "Office couldn't locate a burial for this person" imprinted on it. If you get this posting and do find a picture of you persons tombstone, let me know and I will remove it.
SHOULD YOU WISH TO MANAGE A MEMORIAL PAGE, PLEASE JUST ASK FOR A TRANSFER.

I had the photo request on find a grave for very long time.....over year. But since no response I deleted the request today and then resubmitted the request moments later. Its been so long since I posted the initial request, I'm trying to remember the post and how connected to my family.

Are you a member of the Horne family? Winnie was my Aunt. Did her headstone ever get completed? Please let me know as I am in touch with a family member.
|Stacy Wolfe||Gayman Farm Graveyard|

|LaDonna Bicknell||RE: George W Plummer|
This may be quite lengthy but want you to have some background. In 2003 I talked with the Florence Gruchy of Colorado, my great-grandmother Sarah Adda, wife of George W. Plummer had lived with her parents in Denver at time of Addie's breast cancer and death. At this time in 2003 Florence was 90 years old but still had all of her facilities. She remembered that George Plummer, husband of Addie had been on a selling trip out west and had died out there. She said she had the information stored somewhere at the ranch but was not able to look for it. She died a few years later and we were not able to get anything from her children except that all those old papers had been destroyed after Florence died. In the meantime Nelson Plummer from Groton, VT. contacted me in reply to a request I had sent to their town library. He was also a Plummer descendant and he stated that family information said George Plummer had died January 28, 1899 to information that had come back to relatives in Groton....again no documentation. I know that George W. Plummer was born October 4, 1843 in Groton, Caledonia, VT. to John Weston and Emily (Roberts) Plummer. per the announcement of his death in the Nonpareil Newspaper of Central City, Merrick Co., Nebraska which was dated February 2, 1899 advising of his death. This date was only 4 days after death date we use of January 28, 1899. We know George was a member of the Woodesmen Lodge although the newspaper article says Workman's Lodge. The AOUW Lodge was the one who received the notice in Central City. I thought it unusual that great-grandma Addie received a check of $2,000.00 from the lodge which was a great amount in those days.
Yesterday I did find the death certrificate for his sister Finetta W. Smith who lived in Baker County, Oregon and was probably family that was notified. She died Dec. 6, 1919 in Halfway, Orgeon. George may have been traveling in Washington, selling his goods and died there and she was notified?
Sorry this was so long but info may help. LaDonna Plummer Bicknell
|LaDonna Bicknell||RE: Geo W. Plummer|
I understand your reasoning. Here is the notice in the Nonpareil Newspaper, Central City, Merrick Co., NEbraska.
"Died far from home. A dispatch was received Saturday by the officers of the local A.O.U.W. Lodge announcing that G.W. Plummer, whose home is in Central City, had died at Baker City, Oregon, on that day. Mrs. Plumer was immediately apprised of her bereavement. The lodge extended substantial assistance to the bereaved wo man and her family. Mr. Plummer was a traveling man, selling school supplies, and while his family and home was in this city he has been on the road most of the time and has spent but little of his time here. Mrs. Plummer will receive $2,000.00 insurance money from the Workman's Lodge."
I will keep trying to locate his actual death. The records for that part of Oregon are missing several years from 1897 thru 1905 at the University of Oregon archives. He did have a sister and family living in Baker City at the time of his death. Guess my next move is calling every cemetery in that county. Thank you for your kindness. LaDonna Plummer Bicknell

Re: Geo. W. Plummer, Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, Seattle, King, WA.
George Plummer was my great-grandfather. We know he died on one of his selling trips (he was a traveling salesman selling school supplies) per item in newspaper advising his death, payment of $2,000 to widow and children from this lodge. His body was not returned to Nebraska where wife and children lived, but buried out west. He had a sister who lived in Baker City, Oregon so we think he may have been buried there but were unable to locate any records, although still searching. I would like you to transfer this grave to me as it would mean a lot to the remaining family to know what little is available and that there is a stone commemorating his life. Thank you.
