Bio and Links
Bio Photo At this point in time, regretfully, I will only claim requests for (Old) Tacoma Cemetery (not New Tacoma) or Mountain View (Lakewood) Pierce County, WA.

If you find any errors, duplications or bad photos (covered with debris or moss) that I have taken, please let me know and I will do what is appropriate. Some memorials don't photograph well but I try to get the best shot of them.

My family tree includes the Ritchey (Richey,Ritchie?), Temperley, Molinder and Stenborg lines and has expanded from there to include to many to mention here. The Ritchey history begins with Memorial 58729129. At this point the Temperley line begins with Memorial 18962125 but hopefully more to come. And the Molinder history begins with 66797509. If anyone has any additional information about these lines, please feel free to contact me.

If you are a relative of any of the names I have entered other than my own family line and would like them transferred to you for maintenance, make the request through the EDIT button on their site then the Suggest A Correction link and copy your site ID into the message as it makes it much easier for me to then transfer.

Thank you....and enjoy this addicting site.

Frederick ruled out
He passed away in 1946, and I have Sadie still with John Thompson in Sacramento in 1947.

RE: Weis, Sarah?
Where is this record from? It looks promising and it makes more sense than Ohio. I was fortunate enough to receive communication from one of Georgie's family members, and he confirmed that the family moved from Washington to California and back multiple times. It appears that once they left the midwest, they stayed on the West Coast - even if that was as far north as Alaska.

I am just drawing blank after blank on this one. The death index is the straw that's breaking my back. "Weis" is thrown in there almost as an afterthought. I may have to spring for actual records on this one!

RE: Weis, Sarah?
Boy, that's tempting. It's tempting because Sadie, as she, too, was called, was known to pick up and take off for parts unknown (like Alaska and from Cali to Washington multiple times). But if she were in Ohio at the time of her death, would California have put her in the death index?

I'm going to work on Weis to see if he fits in.

Thanks! :)

Dear Klass
I think I'll create a memorial for Ellen J.

place to be put.

RE: The Brown's - Old Tacoma
Hi, Thanks for agreeing to photo another grave marker. Marcus Brown died Jan. 13, 1893. I have no additional information about the grave site. I presumed the person who posted the Memorial would have obtained that it possible. I don't even know if his grave is marked. Marcus was my Great Grandmother's older brother. Find A Grave did add his parents and his sister at my request. Thank you for your work. Mary Lou Stefanko

Thank you so much! Dennis was the brother I never had, having died before I was born. Ironically, if he had not died I would not have been adopted by my wonderful parents. Interestingly, my wife's uncle was born on the same day, and my mother remembered sharing the room with a lady from (Fife, WA) where her uncle was born. Years later she realized it was the same lady.

The boy who was flying the plane in the adjacent field that he wanted to play with before the car hit him, eventually grew up and was drafted into the Army and sent off to Vietnam. He had a tough time over there, and his troubles caught up with him that affected his marriage and employment. Eventually he moved out and was not to long ago found living homeless. I wonder how much seeing his childhood friend killed affected him.

I appreciate all your help and service you give to others by doing this. thanks -Rob Wenman
