Bio and Links
Bio Photo Most of the memorials I manage are in Rest-Haven Memorial Park. The cemetery has about 17,000 graves with just over 14,590 of them on Find-A-Grave. Rest-Haven has a mausoleum in addition to the cemetery. This cemetery has no upright gravestones, only flat ground level grave marker. The cemetery does not require that a grave be marked, so many graves have no markers.

I will be happy to make additions or corrections to the memorials I manage. If you have a correction, extra information or want a transfer please use the EDIT TAB on that individual's memorial. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE A "Public Message" WHEN ASKING FOR EDITS OR TRANSFERS.

I enjoy genealogical research and spend time enhancing memorials as time permits. My primary task is adding new memorials to help people find their family and friends.

edit for Albert Pederson
Hi Rebecca, I couldn't tell from the email, can you tell me what the original edit was? It doesn't tell me. Also, do you wish a transfer? Linda

Yes, I believe that is correct.
I think I tried to make his uncle his father.

Jacob O 1838 was the son of Buckley Carl (who I can't find)
Jacob O 1840 was the son of Benjamin I

And both Buckley and Benjamin were sons of another Jacob born ~1764. And Jacob 1764 also had a son named Jacob Osborn. Must have been a good family name

Thanks for catching that mistake

Carl Hopping
My apologizes.
You are correct that that is the wrong Jacob O Hopping.
But I believe that the Mary E Hoping I listed is the correct mother

Her reference number is 30252420
If you would like to verify my findings, page 148-149 of Edward S Hopping's "History of the Hopping Family" says the Mary E Allen, wife of Jacob O Hopping, had a ranch near Three Forks until his death.

RE: Buchmeier Family
Okay. So I deleted one of the Carl Buchmeier entries. But why do I need to delete the entry when I have a photo of the marker listing Carl and his birth and death dates on a marker with three other family members at Bethania?

RE: obits
I guess I don't know what more you need to know so that it's not just "opinions", but fits the letter of the Find A Grave policy. I think if the R-G is ok with it, we should be too.

From the policy:

"Do not copy obituary notices from newspapers ... to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so "

I.E. We have permission, and Find A Grave will only respond if there is a complaint from a copyright holder. No problem exists.

I did some looking into this several years ago when I started this hobby and I found out several things:

1) Eugene Register-Guard, and other digitized (microfiche) papers have relinquished copyright to private/derivative use of their work. Effectively, they are in the public domain.

2) Findagrave only disallows obits if you do not have permission. Since I only obtain papers from the public record, we have implicit permission to post.

3) Findagrave will remove contentious obits on their own and will not ban if you cease-and-desist.

Hope that helps, as I had the same concerns.

Recently you requested that I pull down obits from 'your' memorials. While I respect your decision not to post them yourself, I will not remove obits that are already posted. Most families I deal with are happy to have original obits for their own research. If anyone has a problem with an obit that I have posted, please have them contact me & I will remove it.

RE: Dock Daughtry #74874162
Hello - a while ago you had sent me information to update the memorial. As I'm trying to transfer away all non-relative memorials, I figured since you had sent an update, you would be interested. If not, and if you really don't want the memorial, feel free to transfer it back and I'll hold it until I can find someone else to take it. Thanks.
