Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 84. 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.

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 of 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.

RE: Mayme Alexander
I know that Mayme(Mamie)Pearl was the first wife of CJ, and that she predeceased him - she is also buried in Prosser - I don't have any info on a Rose Pearl. I wonder if Margene is Mayme's birth name! Chester Pearl is the name on Mayme's death record.

unmarked graves
I understand your reason for adding those notes as photos--but there is a much better solution: add a picture of the actual, unmarked plot, as well as the marker(s) next to it, with a note in the caption that there is no marker. Unfortunately, some people apparently just add a random shot of green grass...but since you are really there photographing what is there, yours would be genuine.

George Bender in Mountview Cemetery
I've added the info you sent and a note that the grave is unmarked. Please remove your "photo" as it is inappropriate. You should just send SACs (Suggest A Corrections) to people asking them to add that as a note--there have been many discussions in the Find A Grave Forums about those and other types of inappropriate photos. Thank you.

RE: Mayme Alexander
Hi,
Mamie Pearl Alexander (or Mayme) was the daughter of Charles H. Pearl and Marcia E. Hammand - I have a tentative marriage date of 1910 in the state of Washington. Birth date of 09 Nov 1890 in ND and death date of 11 Feb 1942 Yakima, Yakima WA - that info is from Washington Death Certificates 1907 -1960 - which shows her father as Chester.

RE: Clifford Van Horn.
I am pretty certain he is at Oakwood Cemetery. Everything I have as far as records show him to be there. Hopefully this summer I will be able to do an absolute ID on him and others by inventorying the cans at Oakbrook.

Clifford Van Horn.
Yes it is a dupe... but the one at Western State Cemetery is in fact in error and I have not been able to get it, or for that matter several others in the same situation, corrected as of yet.
I have tried working with the original creator of the memorial(s) but they are inactive. I am trying to work it out through Admin, but it is a slow process and I only have so much time to devote to the problem. This has been a project of mine for the last 2 years and it looks like it will keep me occupied for some time to come...
Let me know if you have any other questions about it..
