Bio and Links
Bio Photo Just your average retired man, looking for something to do to keep my mind active.

In 1981-1982, I researched, compiled and published a 306-page book on my ancestor Benjamin West from Penistone, Yorkshire, England.

In 1983, I helped research, compile and edit the Zion Mennonite Cemetery Records by Margaret Shetler. This cemetery is located east of Hubbard, Oregon in south Clackamas county. Finished updating the Zion Mennonite Cemetery book in February 2013. No publication will be printed...all information can be found on FIND A GRAVE for this cemetery.

Currently, I am researching my ancestor Peter Troyer hoping to compile and publish his family descendants.

Completed (2015) my 1985-1986 research and compilation of the Hopewell Mennonite Cemetery in Hubbard OREGON, although I have found a 1998 compilation for this cemetery. Used this compilation to update and improved the FIND A GRAVE memorials.

Now (2015) working on Pratum Cemetery near Salem OREGON.

Your memorial in Zion cemetery has a duplicate.
Her headstone which has just had a photo added,is listed as Nannie V. Adkins.
I would suggest a merge to save the photo and information.Winnie will need to be changed to Nannie V. before that can be done.
Could you let me know if this is o.k.
Thank you,

RE: memorial 86110044 B Greenwood
Hi Royce!

I've fixed the picture. I was using the Find A Grave app on my phone and didn't realize it uploaded my shoe!

Aside from the name difference of Beatrice vs Blanche and Grenwood vs Greenwood, (both with the same maiden name and death date), I noticed there are two different listings:

There is this listing for Beatrice Cahow Grenwood:

There is also this listing for Blanche Cahow Greenwood:

I hope this helps,

Katie Lehman
Hi Royce,

I added that information on Katie Lehman. Based on their dates of death, I suspect that Katie's parents may be John J. Lehman (1831-1863), and Elizabeth J. Gerber Lehman (1829-1911) buried in Sonnenberg Cemetery near Kidron, Ohio, just down the road from Salem Cemetery. Do you have any more information on them?

In regard to Hazel Mary Cox Kauffman Williams above Memorial number. I am wondering if you are related to Hazel? She is my 1st cousin on my father's side of family.

I am so excited to have found her grave as I have often wondered where she was buried.

Thank You,
