RE: Memorial 16795348
Hi Dennis,
Sorry for taking so long to respond and just now able to read the messages sent from Find A Grave members to me. Unfortunately I am not related - just a volunteer. However, I do a quick research when I can to note with a record to make it easier for those who are seeking family tree members. If you would like me to transfer her record to you, just send me a request through the edit button. Marie

My experience with two names in a searchable for Find a Grave has been that if anybody searches for ether, it will not be included in the findings.
I'm willing to go with either name. Please advise. Grace is currently in the attic at View Crest Abbey. If you are family you could request remains and do something with them. Grace seems to have had a most difficult time of it.
I am heading up our Genealogy Society Committee to find funding for unmarked graves in the county. There is over a thousand like Grace in the "Community Vaults" at View Crest Abbey. The laws are such, we can't do anything for them because we are not family.
Many Blessings!
Rev. Larry

My name is Charles Edward Jones. I am the grandson of Edwin Larson. It's nice you've found some of the family artifacts. My parents have a copy of that large family photo. I can try and fill in some gaps.

"Edits" tab on home page
HI - I'm doing a quick survey of about 400 people on my friends list just to see how many are aware of the new "Edits" tab on their home page. If you could just shoot me back a brief response, either way that would be great. Thanks.

RE: Bio information
Hello Dennis,

Col. N. H. Gates was an attorney and business owner in Marysville, California in 1848. He earned a law degree from a college in Chillicothe, Ohio in the late 1820's- early 1830's. He went to Fort Vancouver to meet his family in 1852 and then settled in Portland, Oregon for 18 months, owning a hotel. He then moved to Cascade (now Cascade Locks) on the Washington side of the Columbia. He moved his family to The Dalles, Oregon in 1855 due to the Indian uprising in the area. He practiced law, owned a wagon building business, a bar, and a hotel. The hotel and his home still stand. Mary "Polly" Gates died in Sept. 1868. Sarah died in 1862 and Lydia died in 1864. Bill Gates died in 1925. Col. Gates was Speaker of tne House for Oregon Territory in 1857. He was very involved politically in The Dalles, Wasco County, And the state of Oregon. My husband is from the "2nd" family of Col. Gates by way of his last child, Nathanial Holley Gates, Jr. My information is from my own research and what has been passed down through the generations.

Best, Cheryl Gates

RE: Bio information
Thank you so much for this info. My husband is the gr-gr-grandson of Col. N. H. Gates who was married to Mary Koontz at the time. He came west a few years earlier. I would like to know where I can purchase a copy of this book. Again, thank you.

Best, Cheryl Gates

David Koontz additions
Hello Dennis. You sent me two emails regarding updates for David Koontz, of which I have attempted to add. I am fairly new to the findagrave project so I hope you will find they have worked correctly.

I was excited to see your email, knowing that someone has linked David to his family. I have known of this grave since I was a child. While I was just beginning to use this website, and finding some very helpful information in my own genealogy lines, I decided to add this local grave. I feared no one would ever think to add it, being somewhat forgotten and in a very small town.

Thanks for taking the time to email me and keep up the good work.
