Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, I'm Katie! I'm 32 and live in Lyons, Oregon. I love everything history related, especially old cemeteries, houses, barns, books and photos.

I work full-time and am stepmom to two teens and mommy to a feisty toddler. Please be patient with me! I will get to edits as soon as I can, but am unfortunately not able to process them every day.

My own family names includes the surnames Baptiste, Reid, Bennett, Bales, Fiester, Densford, and Hampton. I am also researching my husband and children's lines, including the surnames Garrison, Follis, Kirsch, Phillips, Mitchell, and Imlah.

I collect antique photographs, particularly those with names on them, and try to match them up with other researchers on Find a Grave or It's so much fun to unexpectedly add something to someone else's search and I hope someday the favor will be returned!

I transcribed several cemeteries in the Silverton and Gervais areas in 2002-2003. I have also used to find additional information about these people. Any and ALL information that I have is already listed on the memorial.

Please feel free to use any gravestone photos that I have posted for your personal genealogical use.

Katie, you are sure a wordsmith! Good detective work I might add. The name carved on this old stone is indeed SANFORD STROUT. I don't know how to get it changed on the city computer records, but this is not the first one I've come across that differs from the gravestone in the short time I have been a volunteer photographer!

Thank you for the notification of the duplicate for my great great aunt. I was given the transfer from the ladies who read the cemetery.
They did not know how to delete their posting for my gg aunt. Cassandra had used many spelling of her first name in her life time. This created then a double post. I have left it as was so other family can find her information.
I had made the memorial for her already under McGuire as she was a lost aunt.
Later through my ancestry. com research, more research etc. I finally found my aunt under Stubblefield, which is on her cemetery, she married at an old age to Mr. Stubblefield.
Thank you again.

Thank you for the transfer! I really appreciate it! I also wanted to tell you how much I appreciate what you're doing with old photographs! I had a sweet lady contact me, who had found a photograph with my ancestor's name on the back. She let me purchase it back for the price she paid. She also directed me to the antique shop where she had found it. I discovered over 100 photographs and postcards which had ended up there after an estate had been sold off. Many had no names, but I recognized my great grandmother, and a couple other relatives, in some of them. I can't even express how much joy it brought me. You are really giving people an incomparable gift!

Hi Katie,

Thanks so much for creating the memorial for my brother-in-law "Oliver Thomas Harvey"
I'm wondering if you are a related to Oliver. Oliver was my oldest sister 1st husband.
If you are not relation, would you mind transferring to me.

Thanks so much,

Wrong name
Hi, Katie. I am writing regarding Find A Grave Memorial #111910377, which you added in 2013. The name of the decedent (according to the gravestone and family history) is Jacqueline June Needham but the spelling on the record is Jackyline. Would you please change it so it is correct?

Just curious -- are you a relation (and, if so, how?) or just a helpful Find A Grave person? Ms. Needham would have been my mother's first cousin.

Thanks! Lynn
