Bio Photo If you have a edit on a memorial that I have, please go through the "edit" button on the memorial and I'd be more than happy to do any edits you may have.

I'm new to all of this, but I do enjoy getting out and getting photo's for other people.

I am spending some time at the Douglass Cemetery adding in the different people and their headstones.

Thank you so much for adding my relative Charlotte Ott to findagrave. I just learned that you can tranfer a person to another member. Would you be willing to tranfer Charlotte Ott's care to me?


Thank you for considering this.

transfer please
Hi Gary, I think you've helped me before. Could I please get the transfer for the following memorial. She was my Great-aunt, I was with her when she died. I'm glad to see there is a memorial & flowers for her.

Is it possible to have you transfer ownership of #75091813 and #75091855 over to me, these are my husband's grandparents. My ID is #46931758, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you,

Chuck Ylsworth, 79395199
Hello Gary,
The first letter in Chuck's last name came unglued from the crypt and the staff hasn't replaced it yet. It should read "Aylsworth."

I found the following information regarding him:

The Oregonian, Portland, Oregon, January 14, 1982, Funeral Notice:
AYLSWORTH--Clarence C., of Portland; brother of Eleanor M. Sites; uncle of Laurence E. Sites. Services 1 pm Friday, Jacobson-Cascade Funeral Home, 9775 SE Mt Scott blvd. Lifetime member, Hilo, Hawaii Elks Club.

Oregon, Death Index, 1898-2008
Name: Clarence Cha Aylsworth
Age: 58
Birth Date: 6 Dec. 1923
Death Date: 13 Jan. 1982
Death Place: Clackamas [County]
Certificate: 82-00104

1930 US Federal Census, Portland, Multnomah County, Oregon.
Charlie R. Aylsworth, Head, age 66, Married, born in Illinois, father born in Rhode Island, mother born in USA, Bookkeeper and Manager, Fuel Company.
His wife was listed as Nanna M. Alysworth, age 39, born in Norway.
- - - -
His middle name was probably Charles and he was called Chuck.

John Blowers
Hi Gary

Could you add this obituary, yours had a lot of missed spelled words.

Thanks you

John Wesley Blowers, 79 March 18, 1933 Jan. 11, 2013 John died Jan. 11 in Longview, Wash. He was born in Portland to Norval and Lucille Blowers and was a life-long resident. John attended Joseph Lane Grade School and Benson Tech. In 1949, he won the Oregonian's "Young Writers Award". John initially drove buses for Rose City Transit. He was later employed in grocery warehousing with Hudson House, Wadams and Flemming Foods. John was a big fan of Johnny Cash and Portland Beaver baseball. John is survived by his ex-wife, Rachael; brother, David; sons, Laurence and Lloyd; grandsons, Curtis, Stephen and Brett; great-grandchildren, Anthony, Genesis and Kylie; nieces, Calina and Leslie; and daughter-in-law, Aileen. He was preceded in death by his brother Norval Jr. Interment will be at Wilhelm Portland Memorial with no service per John's wishes. His outgoing, very honest personality will be missed.

Thanks so much for adding this headstone. Ray and Marie Baylink were my ex's grandparents. I did add a correction for Marie's year of death which was taken from a certified copy of her death certificate. Will also add additional details for Ray. Bea

I actually live in Pittsburgh so I don't think that would be possible. But thank you for offering.

Elmer J. Hedler and his father, Johann Hedler
Hi, I found Elmer J. Hedler (1910-1988), but am looking for his father, Johann Hedler, who I think died 17 Feb 1937 or 1938 in Portland, Oregon. Would you know how to find his father's (Johann) grave? I noticed two other Hedlers buried in Portland, another in Lincoln Memorial Park, where Elmer is buried: Mamie G. Hedler (1887- 1982) and I wondered if that was his mother. The other person was John H. Hedler (1924 - 1991). I don't know if he is related to Elmer.

RE: Daniel T Michael # 50653679
That's awesome information! I'm just getting started and decided to do the michaels first since they're the side I know the least about. I'd always been told we were German but didn't know when the family came over. I truly appreciate this info.
If you have any suggestions on researching family history I'd love any tips you have.

Daniel T Michael # 50653679
I was researching some of my ancestors and came upon Daniel T. Michael. I saw that you had posted some information on him and his wife, Elizabeth. I wondered if you had any information on his parents, Henry and Christina (Karges) or her parents.
