Hi Dawn,

I posted a picture of her gravestone. It has since fallen over. Are you a descendant of this person? Friends of Northfield Cemetery has recently been established and we are slowly organizing to restore the stones, one by one.

Her and Mary are buried side by side. Our society has made the first ever map of the cemetery, each stone mapped has a reference number to a book that has the name and genealogical data of that person buried there. Would you like me to email you the map and reference list? Take care.

Dawn, thank you so much for the excellent photo of my aunt Dorothy's gravestone. It is much appreciated. Some contributors post photos of very poor quality, but yours is top notch!

I wouldn't. The person who submitted that request couldn't be bothered to acknowledge it when I fulfilled it the first time. You're welcome to move the photo over, though. I don't mind.

Hi Dawn... no relation.. I happen to live close to the cemetery in Port Orchard, WA and did a complete transcription a year or so ago.

This is Paul, I was good friends with Owen. I had put in a request to get a picture of his grave marker and if his dad Orvile's is nearby to get one of his too. I never met Owen's dad thou.

When I did the cemetery, I took a photo of every grave that was legible. There are more that I did not input- just so you know.
The transfer is complete for all legible Usher's.
I used to live north of Seattle for 4 years- the NW is a great place.

RE: Blaisdell Cemetery location
As far as I know it is Find A Grave that determines what pics are on the main cemetery. I believe there were 2. Some cemeteries have more of course. So I don't understand unless Find A Grave has decided 2 is enough.
I will be glad to transfer- I will need your Find A Grave number.
