Remember this is a team effort. Other great contributions have added headstones to these sections.

BEFORE requesting a transfer please read the FAG guidelines. I will transfer, but you must state your relationship!

If I have accidentally added a duplicate record please let me know and I will promptly remove it.

If you have a better headstone photo, please add it.

RE: Thomas Edward Thompson
I took the photos and created memorials which I can transfer to you if you like. They are:

Halvor Holden
Tillie T (likely Thompson) Holden

Alice Thompson

Irvin Thompson

Ludvig Thompson
Julia Thompson

They are buried in or next to the plot for Johan and Aaste Thompson.

The stones are hard to read!

Thomas Edward Thompson's stone has already been photoed and uploaded. The four other stones I saw are older and covered with moss. I will let you know.

RE: John Thompson
You are very welcome. There are two more stones that I am quite sure are related to yours. They need to be cleaned though, so I will be going back to clean them and then take pictures.

There are also two more stones in the same lot which has a short wall around it. Their last names appear to be Holden or Helden, but I am not sure. I will be cleaning them too.

Hi there - as I was searching for Ida Ness I see you have her name as Ida K. Ness, however on the headstone it says Ida K NASS. I was wondering if you knew about a mix-up with the grave site headstone. Thanks so much! Memorial# 93322151

Thank you!
Thank you, Diane, for posting photos from the
Evergreen-Washelli cemetery. I found my grandfather's half brother's grave and those of his wife and children. I live in Ohio, so I'm very appreciative that you took the time to do this.

RE: D. Harvey
No problem Diane, it was probably when Find A Grave was having problems one day, remember when you would send out one edit & the person would get ten! I had noticed during that time on memorials I was adding that there were multiples created & I deleted them. I am sure some people didn't catch that. Have a great day!!
