Hello! I am Melissa Sherry. I am a mom to 3 boys. I earned the "Grandma status" with my first granddaughter born in May 2012! I am happily married to my sweetheart hubby, Dean. We reside in Washington State.

Hobbies are Piano & Organ, Ham radio (KE7WCR), and cemetery photographing

Researching surnames of Lively (Maiden name), Blaser, Howland, Over, Carper.

Will gladly take photo's of cemetery plots of surrounding area's.

Please feel free to email me of any corrections needed of friends, Family or transfers of your Family members that are within the guidelines of Find A Grave.

(Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. I am usually willing to transfer most family members to you. I would like to know your relationship, no matter how distant, if you would like transfers. Otherwise no transfer.)

If they are just an acquaintance, someone you knew with NO RELATION to you they will not be transferred. Most of my entries here on FAG were put on here with MANY hours of MY work at the local cemeteries.. (Will consider under special circumstances only)

If anyone would like any information added just email me with a note with your name and I will be happy to add it with your name.

The Abbey...a Project
I will if need be, but thought we could work together to get several locals to go through the Abbey records and the on-ine entries and compare them. Then with the results, approach Find A Grave with a list of the transfers needed to correct the entries. I'm sure the cemeteries involved will appreciate it too with the less number of inquires on the phone and via email or snail mail they will have to reply to, taking away their time from the public they need to deal with in internments and upkeep issues...Let me know if we can get a group of South Sound Find A Grave volunteers and genealogists to assit in this? tnx

The Abbey
Guess I didn't say it right? The Abbey has a listing of 1600 people, in FIND A GRAVE... There are not enough physical spaces in the Abbey to have 1600 interned...

MANY of the memorials listed under the ABBEY have stone photos that are taken outside. So, a Sumner Cemetery interment should not be listed under an ABBEY monacher (sp), but a Sumner listing. We need to change those to reflect who's cemetery they are lying in. Sorry that I didn't come across earlier...

Sumner...we have a Problem!

I think you can help... I've been asked to take photos of grave sites, but some of them already had photos taken by you... obviously, someone is either not happy with photos taken for the memorial of the internment or they want something else. But that's not what I'm writing about...
I see that the Abbey Mausoleum has over 1600 entries for internments. Maybe you know of the other people that entered the memorials in FIND A GRAVE, that have an OUTSIDE STONE, but listed as an ABBEY cemetery entry... Well, the internees are technically in the PIONEER CEMETERY of the City of Sumner Cemetery, according to the maps. We've got a HUGE project to CHANGE all the cemeteries for the OUTSIDE STONES and leave the other entries "inside". If you go to and look for the link to the cemetery, you'll see the maps for the WEST and EAST LOOP Sections of the PIONEER Cemetery on the north side of Valley Ave, E. and the other side, the south, with the Sumner City Cemetery. I would suggest you get with Scott at 253-299-5510 and talk to him if you can't get a map. Basically, if you're friends with any of the creators, I would get off an email to them and let them help... or contact the memorial creator and get them to change the entry. The Abbey has a list of ALL that are interned, if there is no CONFIRMATION Photo of the internment, and if you eliminate those internees from the rest, then all the others could be changed to reflect which REAL Cemetery they are in. I would reflect in the "NOTES: Interned in Pioneer Cemetery of Sumner Cemetery System, etc." and pick the SUMNER CEMETERY or Pioneer Cemetery. But since they've combined all entries for those two into one, The Sumner, then it would be best to update to "SUMNER CITY CEMETERY" and then address whether on the North "PIONEER" Side or the South Side in notes for those looking for the grave.
Been fun out there for about a week trying to find a few people that weren't properly marked and that's how I found the HUGE MISTAKE. Thanks,KC

Hello Melissa,
Thanks again for all the work you do. I have determined for sure the mother of your person, Edward M. McGuire (66942676). Her name is Una Florence Corn McGuire (146536885). Would you please attach her as Edward's mother? Myself and contributor 'Gail' have been working on getting all of the children of John McGuire created and/or linked. Thank you, Richard.

possible duplicate
I think someone created a duplicate but not positive.
I hope I picked the other link. My memory is shot.
