Bio and Links
I live in Whatcom Co, Washington, and have been actively doing genealogy since 1978. I became a FAG member shortly finding my 5th great-grandfather's gravestone photo and knew I had to create memorial pages and post the numerous photos and records that I had collected. My surnames of interest include Gilbert, Glover, Gowdy, Brown, Packard, Wakely and Jennings.

Additions and corrections to FAG Memorials: I will add additional information and make corrections to the memorials I have created. Please use the "edit" tab that can be accessed from each memorial page and choose the correct option.

Transfer requests: Please request the transfer of a Memorial according to the guidelines of FAG. I will not transfer Memorials for those that I am directly related to. Please, also, used the "edit" tab from each memorial that you wish to have transferred and include your contributor ID# in your request under "Suggest any other correction or addition."

Obituaries: I will add obituaries to memorials only if the death of the individual occurred over 20 years ago. I do not post newspaper obits without a proper citation which includes both the date and the name of the newspaper.

Photos: You have my permission to use any photo that I have taken and posted to a Memorial. Please remember to give my name and where you found the photo. Also note that I believe it is more important to capture the data on the headstone and provide the best possible photo. Please contact me should you desire a scenic photo of the area where the headstone is located.

Ross Leavell
Could you double-check the death date of Ross Leavell in Greenacres Memorial Park? I think there's a typo. You have it as 10 May 1911, but here's the Social Security record:

SOCIAL SECURITY DEATH INDEX
Name: Ross W. Leavell
SSN: 538-26-3600
Born: 3 Sep 1900
Died: 10 May 1991
State (Year) SSN issued: Washington (Before 1951

His name was Ross Willard Leavell, husband of Lois Howton, son of Charles Elwood Leavell and Gertrude Mutchler.

Norma L Elsner
Merrily, I had placed a photo request for Norma L Elsner (memorial number 130249114). Beth Marsau accepted the request and was notified by Greenacres Memorial Park that "Norma L. Elsner Born 2/16/27 Died 2/5/89 was cremated and returned to family. I do not have any other information on her". Since you added the memorial page, I thought I should notify you.

I've added the information to the memorial I manage and then realized it was a duplicate. So I've sent a message to the owner of the other memorial and offered to delete mine after the information you provided is placed on theirs.
