Bio and Links
I've always been fascinated with grave sites, visited cemeteries, made rubbings, took photos, etc. and must say that find-a-grave is an ideal site.

I've worked on family history projects for over 35 years and will for as long as I can. I'm more than happy to share family history with anyone interested.

The primary names I research are STROOPE, KEA, Pitts, Howton, Trammel, Hopper, Hale, Thetford, CARPER, BARTON, Lyon, Phipps, Griffith, Ellison, Shumate and many allied lines.

When I document a grave site, I try to include some information on the parents, siblings, marriage, etc. hoping this will help someone idendify their relative. In some cases, when recording my line, or lines, I've created memorials for as much of the cemetery as I've had access to.

I'll be glad to transfer your family member to you. Always remember the FAG # for the memorial page and, of course, your FAG #. PLEASE do not send me a big list of names with no numbers included... thanks

If I have grave site information in error, please contact me so that corrections can be made.

Recent projects include:

--Gig Harbor and Haven of Rest Cemeteries, Gig Harbor, Pierce County, Washington

--JCC Smith Cemetery in Texas

--Knight of Pythias and Sunset Lane Memorial Park, Port Orchard, Kitsap County, Washington

--Lovington and Resthaven Cemeteries, Lovington, Lea County, New Mexico

--Mountain View Memorial Park, Lakewood, Pierce County, Washington

--Mount Calvary Cemetery (Santa Barbara Cemetery) , Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, New Mexico

--Calvary, Old Pioneer and Tacoma Cemeteries, Tacoma, Pierce County, Washington

--Riverside Cemetery in Vassar, Tuscola County, Michigan

Oops hit enter there. I went up to Cromwell today. Couldn't find a stone for her, so I guess its not been placed as of yet. I checked where the other Pearsons were buried, then the rest of the cemetery, so pretty sure I didn't somehow miss it. I'll check for it when then do the annual clean up in April/May.

Donaldson, Clarissa #66227200
Hi Kathy,

Haven't had the pleasure of conversing with you for awhile. Had some time, so I am trying to catch a few of the names on this list. Donaldson's marker has suffered quite a bit of damage, broken, dirty & covered with pine needles. I used some washable chalk to verify it. Although Clarissa's name is not showing, the other information matches. Hope this a is enough proof for your memorial.

RE: Shield
Thank you so much for the wonderful compliment. I took the photo sort of at an angel because straight on there was glare and reflection from the rain.
Speaking of rain....wasn't today nuts?

Elnora B Dale, Memorial 108459474
Kathy, I see you have a entry for an Elnora B. DALE Memorial 108459474 who died in 1971 in Tacoma, WA. The memorial says she married Donnie Reo DALE and child Wauntea P. DALE. This is the incorrect Elnora DALE. I do not know who this person is, but she is not the wife of Donnie DALE of South Dakota and not the mother of my cousin Wauneta. Please see Memorial 104161185 for the correct Elnora Belle STAGE DALE. Donnie was only married once, on 20 Jul 1904 in Mitchell, SD to Elnora Bell STAGE who born on 13 Dec 1882 in Centerville, Lincoln, SD and she died 28 Dec 1955 in Mitchell, South Dakota. Death Certificate 288756. The burial in Graceland Cemetery is the correct wife. I am also the custodian of the records left by my deceased cousin, Wauneta DALE POE, Elnora and Donnie's only child. Thanks, Pam B.

RE: Old Tacoma
Or she can check her files if she still has them. Take care.

UPDATE - Old Tacoma....your request
For Barwell. I called and got the location. I sent the correction to Liane. She may have a photo as she said all of Section 3 had been done. You might want to check with her.

Old Tacoma
Hi Kathy, You have a request in at OTC for Lillias F Edwards Barwell with a location of Section 8? Block D etc. There is no Block D in Section 8. Do you think it might be Block B? Should I ask LIane as she is the one that might have put the location in from funeral records. Thanks.
