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: Please use the appropriate "edit" tab that can be accessed from each memorial page. If unsure, use the "Suggest any other correction or addition" tab.

Transfer requests: Using the "Suggest any other correction or addition" tab, please request a transfer of a Memorial according to the guidelines of FAG. I will not transfer Memorials for those I am directly related to. And DO NOT FORGET TO INCLUDE YOUR MEMBER #.

Obituaries: I will add obituaries to memorials only if you include a proper citation -- both the date and the name of the newspaper. I reserve the right to edit out living relatives.

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.

Thank you for the note on my mistake. The 26th was the day of her memorial. My husband's cousin attended the memorial so I had that date stuck in my head. A new picture of the stone will be needed when it is updated, a double with her husband. My husband has a smith aunt married a Barnes man.

Hi Merrily,

Hello Merrily,

Your memorial for Ronald Zwicher looks like a duplicate memorial for # 129849746, which was created first. ... They might appreciate having your photo of the headstone though.

Best regards,
Kathy B.

Thank you so much for including Mary's stone on her Find A Grave Site.

I have found her husband, Allie A. Woodring # 5980348 also.

Mary was our neighbor & friend when I was a child. She was a widow with no children and gave us a lot of her time. If you could, would you link Mary with her husband Allie A. Woodring? I never got to meet Allie as he had passed away, but she spoke of him often...I just want them together now.

Thank you so much

For posting a photo on my Great grandfather's memorial, I am grateful.
Funny thing, about 20 years ago when my Grandmother died I had the occasion to visit Woodlawn and the sexton was able to locate the marker and I took a photo; pre digital so buried in a box of genealogy where our fire prone state makes fleeing easier; not so the scanning and letting go.
Much appreciated

Didn't do through the edit feature :/ because I don't know how to make a note there; am not certain there is an error, and have nothing yet to substantiate / verify there is one. The date might be perfectly correct as is !! But...

His dates are exactly the same as a Robert Seally Rawls, who seems to have died in / near Ferndale - EXCEPT the birth year is 1874, not 1894. People with same/similar names are born and die on the same dates all over the world, but, with the location, and them being so exact except for the " 9 " I was thinking maybe, if you go to the cemetery again, you might note it down and double check to see if maybe the headstone really says 1874 instead of 1894. Please don't feel you need to make an extra trip, but I thought possibly might be worth a look?

Except for it being 20 years off, the B and D dates are exact:
B 7 November 1894
D 24 March 1974
