Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am new to A portion of my ancestry research focuses on the Hale and Sebastian families from Tennessee and Kentucky who moved to California. The Needham family is connected to the Sebastian family through marriage.

Another area I am looking into is the Kempf lineage starting back in Alsace in the mid 1800s, immigrating to Texas and next California. Connected to the Kempf lineage are the Donsbach family from Nassau, and through marriage to the Vawters.

Most recently I am exploring the ancestry of the Clemons family lineage related to Phineas Harrison Clemons and his wife Alice Eugenia Douglass. Also, the lineage of Eugene Aloysius Marx.

Please help yourself to any of my photos. I don't know if Old Barry Cemetery has a restoration fund, however. I will ask around and see what I can find out. If you are interested in getting an individual's tombstone fixed, I can help with that. Thank you for your kind words and for your concern for our old cemeteries here in Pike county.

Its against the law in ILL to restore tombstones without a state certificate. I agree with the law its to easy to really ruin an older stone. We can however set one upright that has fallen. well meaning people can shorten the life of a stone.

RE: William H Ferris & Nancy V Hudson Ferris
Hello MarshaHale,
Thank you for asking for permission to use my grave marker photos on Find A Grave for William H Ferris & Nancy V Hudson Ferris, 118546899, 117284314, in Lincoln Memorial Park, Portland, Oregon.

If you give me credit as the photographer, include that the original photo is on Find A Grave, and give the name and location of the cemetery, you have my permission to post the grave marker photos I took on your family site at Anyone else who wants to use these photos needs to contact me for permission.

I noticed you have a photo of Nancy, on her memorial page, and it is the 3rd photo displayed. You may or may not realize that when you add a photo there are 4 types of photos to choose from. The default is Grave, but you can choose Person, Family or Other. If you choose "Person" for Nancy's photo, her photo will be displayed first on her memorial page. Grave marker photos are displayed after those of a person. You might also be able to change the "Sort Order" of the photos since you created the memorial page.Use the "Photo" tab at the top of the memorial page to access the Sort Order change.

It is too soon for her to have a tablet. May I suggest you post another photo request next September? She is buried next to Nathan who I assume is her husband. I posted to his memorial as well. James
