Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Ellen Allmendinger. I am an avid cemetery visitor, as well as a historical researcher.

I have found that one of the best places to learn about people in an area is the cemeteries located within or nearby. The dates, stories, names all give clues as to what life was like in the area both in the past and the present.

I am blessed to have visited cemeteries in Yakima, other areas in Washington and Oregon state (and the Pacific Northwest), as well as Hawaii, Florida, Maryland and even recently thru out Scotland.

Every time I visit a cemetery I am amazed at the beauty of the stones and monuments, the history, the names of families and last but not least the history of the area.

I also enjoy updating Find A Grave when I have free time in order to help others learn of the area,as well as help to connect famimlies.

If you find I have entered a family member or need to revise my entries please let me know. I will be happy to transfer them to you!!!

"Cemeteries are like parks only filled with history. Stop, look around, read the names and dates. Your walking amid history. Respect it, enjoy it and learn from it. Those buried at cemeteries lived so that we can learn about the world both past and present!"

Cemeteries need to be treated with upmost respect. They are the resting places of families, friends and founders.

Research NOTES:
Simmons Cemetery: There was once a cemetery located at approximately Fruitvale Blvd. & North 6th Avenue. The bodies have been relocted to Tahoma Cemetery, but I have added it to the site for informational purposes.

Menard photo
The photo you have with Beloni Menard Jr. #32166149 should be on his father Beloni Menard Sr #22407096 (died in 1909).

Would you be able to find where she is buried? Her husband is Leonard Chouinard in Calvary, Yakima. Her maiden name is Hedberg. Thanks

RE: Hello!
You are so kind! Yes, all still continues on here - still above the grass - not under it!

Just wanted to say hi. My maternal grandmother was Caroline Pauline Allmendinger, a sister of Richard Johannes Allmendinger. I have done a lot of research on the Allmendinger and Idler ancestral lines. I have a degree in Family History from Brigham Young University. I am trying to work the descendancy lines at this time and would love to know who you descend through.

RE: Archibald Adams Montgomery
Oh my God! I just picked up your message and you made my year! I have been an avid Montgomery member for over 20 years - and you just popped up today - Archibald Montgomery - and children - he was your grandfather! I am descended from Ada Maria Montgomery - who married James Barton - she was the sister of Archibald! I must go and refresh my memory now - it has been a few years - but I am just so thankful to you for contacting me - and I guess we are cousins, aren't we! Woohoo - thank you - thank you - thank you again! I will write you later this afternoon to find out about your family!
