Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy and appreciation of cemeteries came from my maternal grandmother. I belong to the Society of Mayflower Descendants through her ancestors. These ancestors, to date, are Henry Samson (and the aunt who raised him, Ann Cooper Tilley, who had no children of her own), Edward Fuller, James Chilton and his daughter Mary (who married John Winslow), and Richard Warren. More to come, possibly.

I thought Grandma's genealogy was well researched and documented, but I only knew a fraction of it.

Very little is known about Grandpa's ancestry and that continues to be the challenge. His Bunting and Murphy ancestry, however, is known and documented in Livingston and Washtenaw County MI.

I have met many friends and relatives in the process of unraveling my family's past, and it's become a terrific hobby. I don't know what I did in my spare time before.

Some of the names I research are Gardner, Bunting, Murphy, Eastman, Sprout, Damon, Scovill, Collins, Reed, Hinchey, Lassen, and last but not least, Rasmussen.

Good luck in all your genealogy travels.

RE: Mary June Hall-Old Tacoma
I haven't heard back from Chris, not sure why that is... he's done so in the past but only because I gave him too many names. If I'm able to get him to reply or find out where her parents are I'll be in touch.

Max Bonter
Hi Raleigh - I just transferred Max Bonter to you. I'm cleaning up my managed graves and I thought you might like to have him. I'm still waiting to take a newer photo of Max and Mary Solis's crypt but they're using the corridor for storage longer than I thought they would. take care, Jim

RE: Mary June Hall-Old Tacoma
I see Rosa Hall (born in Michigan, 54 yo) listed with a Leroy G Hall (born in Colorado, 50 yo, working in City Hall) in the 1930 Orting census.

I also see Rose Hall (45 yo born in Michigan) listed with Malcolmb Hall (38 yo born in Kansas, occupation District Manager in Insurance) in 1920 in Tacoma census with a Mark A Bunting (listed as stepson to Head of Household, 20 yo, born in Michigan, occupation Boilermaker in Railroad) and a Mary M Hall (listed as Mother to Head of Household; 67 yo, born in Michigan).

For him there's a age difference plus different state and slight variation in name from what's reported from the 1920 census versus 1930 census. Makes me ponder if he was actually born in 1881 or there was a brother born after him by the name of Leroy G.

Sent a message to Chris to check his records, I'll let you know what he has to say.

RE: Mary June Hall-Old Tacoma
I checked the scans I took of the handwritten internment records for Old Tacoma and I do not see Rose Hall listed. I'll see if Chris will double check for both parents.

RE: Mary June Hall-Old Tacoma
I photographed most of section 8 so if they were there, they either have a buried marker, no marker at all, or in the part of the section I didn't photograph. Do you happen to know their dates of death?

RE: Delzie Rasmussen
You're very welcome, Raleigh. I also posted a new picture of her husband's headstone. Feel free to use the pictures anyway you like.

Crowley updates
Hi! Thanks for the updates to the Crowley memorials! If you are in any way related to them, I'd be happy to transfer them to your care! I'm not related at all.. just happened to photograph them one day when I visited the cemetery. Just let me know! Dana

Alban and Harriet Bunting
I uploaded a photo of the Bunting monument where these two are buried with several other family members. However, neither of them has an individual marker.

Hope this helps.
