Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired engineer after working at GE for 32 years. I was widowed after a 58 year marriage.

Thankfully, I am still very active and healthy at the age of 84. Most of my life I have ridden bicycles. I rode over 78,000 miles between 1980-1990 and I have walked over a million steps (yes, I kept track!) That explains the right hip replacement!

I volunteer two days a week at our local museum photographing items for archiving. I also volunteer two hours a week at our hospice thrift store and, of course, spend endless hours on FAG!

I became interested in Find A Grave when I was working in genealogy with my significant other, Joyce Larsen, and we discovered this site.

When I take photographs, I take a broom, a knife for trimming around the edges and often get down on my knees and sometimes my stomach to get a good photo. I really hate to see photos of mud or leaves and grass on the headstone (especially the military ones!)

I will be happy to transfer a relative to you, or make corrections/additions. Please use the EDIT BUTTON on "Correction Requests" for any changes and on transfers please INCLUDE YOUR ID NUMBER.

RE: Fred W. Unfried
Interesting !!

lawyer Mack Gose, Washington State Supreme Court Judge 1909-1915 was a Pomeroy native. He married Lelah Seeley... Lelah's sister Katherine "Kate" (Seeley) Allen was my step grandpa;, Robert "Seeley" Allen's mother..

His grandmother was the one behind the building of the Seeley Theatre in Pomeroy.. story about it on Gramp's findagrave page.. Robert Seeley Allen, Pomeroy City Cemetery.

Mack and Lelah built a grand 3 story Victorian on a corner lot on Pomeroy..sadly, it is no longer there.. we would love to someday come across a picture of it. As far as we or the Garfield County Museum knows, there isn't one.

Looks like you found more info on him ! Thanks!

I have found many times that when one spouse goes first they are creamated, then put in when the remaining spouse passes..

We may never know.. it's interesting though.

I am working on Normal Hill Cemetery in Lewiston, ID and there are tons of burials that aren't in their records. (although they are all on findagrave) seems people, even now days, bury ashes with another family member, and never notify the cemetery, or pay the fee... according to the city, if the fee isn't paid, they officially aren't there, and they won't add them to their records, even if they have a marker.

RE: Not this cemetery
One of the things I have discovered in working with cemetery records is that more often times, there is no record of a burial. Obit, death cert, BT permit, etc.. all say they are buried in a certain cemetery, but the cemetery has no record of it...But there they are, marker and all.

One cemetery I am currently working, in Whitman County, WA has 3 pages, single spaced, of unknown burials. They have the plot info, they know that someone is buried there, but no idea of who or when.

I would be curious to see the plot map, as there is more than one family member buried there.

Are you local ? What is the name of the newspaper that was in business 1900-1970 ?

When someone says someone isn't buried some there, I like to research further and make sure.

As an example, We (2 of us) searched and search for Ben Wilson, through 3 states and a 3rd marriage...he had 2 wives and several children all buried in the same cemetery,.. he died in CA... we finally found him...our last resort, the local newspaper... a blurb in the Colfax Gazette... Ben Wilson passed away in Santa Cruz, his body was shipped home to Albion for burial. there he was buried with his wives and children, no marker for him...and no record of it in the cemetery records..

Hi there. I am the granddaughter of Theophilus Monroe Faulkner.

I need to point out that you have a few discrepancies in the children. There is no Wilbur at all. My grandfather's name is spelled as above.

If you would like a complete list of children (there were 11 in total, please let me know.)

I can be reached at calikamm@gmail.com

Thanks in advance

RE: New EDIT procedures
Thanks for your note. I do use the edit button process, but I am not able to check Find A Grave daily. Also, please refer to my contributor profile; if source information is not provided, I often need to fact check, and that takes much more time. I do this because I've received too many edits that proved incorrect, or were merely guesses. You are welcome to contact me via email anytime you have a concern about my memorials, or have further information to offer.
