Bio and Links
Bio Photo FINDAGRAVE is a COLLABORATIVE website; Collaboration is working with each other to do a task and to achieve shared goals. It is a recursive process where two or more people or organizations work together to realize shared goals.

IF you can't or won't collaborate and all you can do is harass those of us that do, perhaps you should find another sandbox to play in ?

There are several of us in the local area working together to document our area cemeteries. This includes burials with no markers. If you would like to work with us, just let us know, or check with us to see where, what, when etc we are working on. The purpose of working together is to avoid duplication of efforts and share the work. We are working on cemeteries in Whitman, Garfield, Asotin Counties in WA, and Latah, Nez Perce, Clearwater, Idaho and Lewis Counties in ID.

Please request edits, corrections and transfers by clicking the "EDIT" tab on the memorial page, select the category of your edit and submit. For bios, obits and transfers use "suggest other corrections". Type your request for transfer in the box, be sure to include your member number. There is no separate transfer tab.
Please abide by the findagrave faqs as they pertain to transfers:

How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Second, Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Feel free to copy any pic/info I have posted. You do not need to give me credit. If you have taken a picture of a headstone that is better than the one I posted, please post it to the memorial and let me know so I can remove mine.

If you add a marker pic to a memorial in my care,(or anyone else's) please either send me/them a sac so we know you added a marker pic, or do the edits, if needed, so we can make sure the page gets updated with any info from the marker. Thanks ! There are getting to be way too many with marker pics that the info hasn't been added to the memorial page.

Plot Info: Please include it when creating memorials. How can anyone possibly FIND A GRAVE, (for a photo request or a family member visiting a cemetery), if you don't add the plot info ?????? I made the mistake of not doing this on my first cemetery. It was a good lesson to learn.

I document entire cemeteries. I upload the pics to findagrave, then pass them on to others that are working on other cemetery projects and database websites like: and

You do not need to give me credit for any info I may pass on to you. I don't do this for the credit or the numbers, I do it to help others find and connect to their people, which is how I discovered findagrave myself.

IF you feel you do need to make a notation that I contributed info, please DO NOT put my name at the top of someone's bio.. it looks tacky and takes the focus away from the person who the page is about.. please put your notation at the bottom, below the newspaper notation.

If I have sent you an obit it's up to you whether you want to include it or not. Everyone seems to want proof of any and all edits now, so many times I send along the obit, if I can find it, when I send edits.

I am not responsible for duplication of burial unknowns or memorials placed in the wrong cemetery, that were not placed in a cemetery, or the correct cemetery.

The site rules clearly state that burial unknown, where the cemetery has not been located after 30 days are not subject to the normal seniority rules on resolving duplicates. A contributor who has posted a memorial with a known burial location may as a courtesy remove their memorial if an older unknown burial memorial is edited and moved into the correct cemetery but the contributor who found the burial location first is under no obligation to do so.

An Unknown Burial is a burial you know is there, but you don't know WHO it is..Burial Unknown is you don't know where they are buried.
I am descended, on my father's side, from Smith/Hickman; Penawawa/Colfax, Whitman County, WA and McLeod/Peterson; Anatone/Asotin, Asotin County, WA.

my dad's side; Moser/Wieber; Colton, Whitman, WA.

My Mother's side, Myers/Bowles; Myers: Flora, Wallowa, OR and Asotin County, WA. and Bowles/McKorkell, Lewis County, ID and Umatilla County, OR.

Koontz photo request
I was at the IOOF cemetery in M-F for the first time yesterday and got about half the photo requests there filled. I was lucky enough to encounter the caretaker who had a list of burials and took the time to explain the layout and give me as many locations (by block and row) as he had time for. I asked him for a location on Carl Koontz and if he had other Koontzes listed. The only Koontz on his list was George, and I did not find his marker in the indicated row or while walking through most of that section, so he may not be marked. I plan to return there when I can (but it may be awhile), and I will ask how complete their records are and if they have a birth and burial date for George to help confirm if he is Carl's son mentioned in Carl's memorial. Is there a possibility the spelling might be different? I saw a number of "Koon" monuments-- or could it be spelled with a "C"? There are at least 3 Yardleys buried there. I found and photographed two but have not yet located the requested one--George. Might they be relatives of Carl's wife?

Thanks so much for the obituary for Carl Cox. I've posted it and it enabled me to make connections to his parents. I appreciate it very much.

Ed McConville
Hi Kerry, Please remove your addition to Ed McConville's memorial page. This man's page is a special memorial to me. I am an honored contributor by The United States Museum of Military History in Mr. McConville's honor. I plan to do a write up on him and post it. I know many details about his life.

Thanks in advance.

RE: Christian Weisgerber
Only thing I could think of was that Christian would not fit and Christ was the acceptable abbreviation. I have seen Christ listed in some church record transcriptions that I have done.

Christian Weisgerber
My father-in-law briefly knew him. But heard his father talk of him and refer to him as Chris, not Christ. Also heard him referred to as Christopher.

RE: Tabitha Ackles
I wasn't trying to lambaste you on this subject and if you feel offended then I am sorry that you do. I also feel that if you are not a relative to whom you are referring to then it should not be a problem for you. Brenda and I have been trying to figure this out for the last year or so because it bothers me as well not knowing, not knowing if she even has a headstone marker gets to me. I know that my gr-grandfather was not a wealthy man but he could have at least put a small marker on both of his parents burial places, which apparently he didn't. And maybe because they were Jewish they didn't want their graves marked, could be!
I will go back and edit in a referral as to where or should I say what name of the cemetery she is in. It isn't my fault that someone changed the name of the cemetery, as our paperwork only states "Fraternal Cemetery" Palouse, WA. I couldn't even find her there as no one is ever around to help with questions like that and certainly never a grounds keeper there everyday.
I think with this so called lambasted thing Kerry is that on your note to me you used exclamation marks, those are only used when someone demands something from someone else and that's why you got back what you did. But until we know for sure what is going on and from Brenda and I figuring this out my gr-gr-grandmother will stay where she is at for the time being. My problem is that I do not care what other's think of her being where she is, at one time there was a cemetery called that, so if we take all that away then no one will ever even know that Fraternal Cemetery ever existed, that isn't right either. And how many other families of Palouse own lots in Fraternal that have never been filled because they have moved on? So you see that is another reason to keep this exactly the way that it is. So I am only assuming (shame on me for doing that too!) that the Fraternal section of Greenwood was actually the first cemetery who all who lost their lives there in Palouse during the same time frame or before. Greenwood doesn't state that it was Fraternal before it was Greenwood either so there is a problem with that as well. And if we just put my gr-gr-grandmother in Greenwood that to is the wrong place for her. So now do you understand why we have such a difference here? I sure hope so.
PS: I hope that you will accept my apology as I really did not want to offend you in anyway. I needed to make my self clear to you not upset you.

Hi. Saw the new photo of his marker.Nice photo. For some reason, the new one was added twice. Could you please delete one of them? That way more photos can be added later. Findagrave won't let me delete the extra one. Thanks.
