Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Oregon and started my genealogy hobby in 1976. That lasted for less than a year, and then I started again in the winter of 1998. I'm not a professional, but monitor, and have volunteered to answer some easy questions and requests for Multnomah County, Oregon, at GenForum and RootsWeb. I'm a member of the Genealogical Forum of Oregon, in Portland.

Family direct lines:
Paternal: Fenter, Hardage (Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri), 1800's.
Maternal: Campbell, Steele (Kansas, Missouri, North & South Carolina, Pennsylvania), 1800's.
Some Collateral lines of interest, Paternal: Allen, Bray, Cain, Doudy/Dawdy, Hardage, Hughes, Tanner.
Some Collateral lines of interest, Maternal: Anderson, Bailey, Chamberlin, Cook/Koch, Cordon, Drake, Duff, Hart, Hillhouse, Holmes, Montgomery, Myers, Stanley, Williams.

I treat each headstone photo with the same care as mom did for the annual family Christmas card for relatives and friends. We all had to look our best, had several photos taken, and she chose the best photo for the card. I try to give you the best photo possible. I know how important it is to be able to read all the text on the headstone, especially if you are the family genealogist, looking for a name for an initial, a date you don't have, or the name of a spouse or child.

Find A Grave allows space for 5 photos to be loaded on each memorial for free. Therefore, I try not to upload more than 2-3 grave marker photos so there is room for you to load photos of family and documents. If you need more room for photos, please contact me and ask me to remove a photo so you have more room.

If anyone would like to use any of my grave marker photos, please contact me for permission.

Regarding requests for transferring memorials I've created, but are not in my family, please contact me, and include your member name and member number.

RE: Re: McFarland info
She was 18 & he 20 when they married according the census.

No, I found a Sall Family Tree that gave her maiden name.

I have contacted the lady and hope to hear back from her today.

RE: Re: McFarland info
Yes, I got it. Sorry I didn't let you know. Some of the info I had, Some of I didn't.

I knows Oscar was in his fathers household in Stephens, Ouachita Co. Ark 1920 Census. Didn't indicate he was married.

RE: Dolly Burns McFarland
Jan, I see that you live in Oregon.

I have been trying to find the marriages of Vernon(Vernie) Lexia McFarland & his 4th wife Lena Cleater. All I have is married in 1940 in Skamania Wash. Not sure how close to Portland Oregon but would appreciate any help if possible. Will be happy to pay costs.

Also Oscar T. McFarland who died in 1933, married a Nina J. Not sure date or location. Would appreciate any help with this if possible.

I live in Pasadena, TX.
