Bio and Links
I live in Whatcom Co, Washington, and have been actively doing genealogy since 1978. I became a FAG member shortly finding my 5th great-grandfather's gravestone photo and knew I had to create memorial pages and post the numerous photos and records that I had collected. My surnames of interest include Gilbert, Glover, Gowdy, Brown, Packard, Wakely and Jennings.

Additions and corrections to FAG Memorials: Please use the "edit" tab that can be accessed from each memorial page and choose the correct option.

Transfer requests: Please request the transfer of a Memorial according to the guidelines of FAG. I will not transfer Memorials for those that I am directly related to. Please, also, use the "edit" tab from each memorial that you wish to have transferred and include your contributor ID# in your request under "Suggest any other correction or addition."

Obituaries: I will add obituaries to memorials only if the death of the individual occurred over 20 years ago. I DO NOT POST newspaper obits without a proper citation which includes both the date and the name of the newspaper.

Photos: You have my permission to use any photo that I have taken and posted to a Memorial. Please remember to give my name and where you found the photo. Also note that I believe it is more important to capture the data on the headstone and provide the best possible photo. Please contact me should you desire a scenic photo of the area where the headstone is located.

John Herman Baldwin (1909-1979)
I see that you created the page for John H. Baldwin (124224773). I've had our family genealogy worked passed onto me and have a few mysteries I'm trying to solve. In doing so, I see that in your memorial page for John that you have his son Jack and James. He had a daughter who is still living. She is Marion May (Baldwin) Dekoekkoek (B: 1937), and there was a still-born son in 1940. I have a hunch that the baby was buried in John's father, Martin's plot with him at Blaine. I have yet to corroborate that.

Thank you for creating the Bud Baldwin memorial for me too.

RE: Martin Baldwin
Thank you. I added his photo a few days (or so) back. I appreciate the note. Unfortunately Carolyn Farnum (#10411580) - does not accept messages on the find a grave system it appears. What avenue does that leave me for correcting my G-Grandfather's memorial page?

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart I know the family thanks you so much. I am working on this for a very close friend. I am sending him an email as soon as I send your thank you. You put forth so much of an effort that I am forwarding the email to him from find a grave. His last name is Sheveland so you might get a thank you note from him as well.

Thank you for helping so much
