Bio and Links
I've always been fascinated with grave sites, visited cemeteries, made rubbings, took photos, etc. and must say that find-a-grave is an ideal site.

I've worked on family history projects for over 35 years and will for as long as I can. I'm more than happy to share family history with anyone interested.

The primary names I research are STROOPE, KEA, Pitts, Howton, Trammel, Hopper, Hale, Thetford, CARPER, BARTON, Lyon, Phipps, Griffith, Ellison, Shumate and many allied lines.

When I document a grave site, I try to include some information on the parents, siblings, marriage, etc. hoping this will help someone idendify their relative. In some cases, when recording my line, or lines, I've created memorials for as much of the cemetery as I've had access to.

I'll be glad to transfer your family member to you. Always remember the FAG # for the memorial page and, of course, your FAG #. PLEASE do not send me a big list of names with no numbers included... thanks

If I have grave site information in error, please contact me so that corrections can be made.

Recent projects include:

--Gig Harbor and Haven of Rest Cemeteries, Gig Harbor, Pierce County, Washington

--JCC Smith Cemetery in Texas

--Knight of Pythias and Sunset Lane Memorial Park, Port Orchard, Kitsap County, Washington

--Lovington and Resthaven Cemeteries, Lovington, Lea County, New Mexico

--Mountain View Memorial Park, Lakewood, Pierce County, Washington

--Mount Calvary Cemetery (Santa Barbara Cemetery) , Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, New Mexico

--Calvary, Old Pioneer and Tacoma Cemeteries, Tacoma, Pierce County, Washington

--Riverside Cemetery in Vassar, Tuscola County, Michigan

Good Morning, I took a trip to the Lostine Cemetery yesterday and was looking for Roy Collins grave site. I did not find a Roy Collins but I did find a Bruce LeRoy Collins 1956/1981, and a Allen E Collins 1922/2012, and a Julie Ann Collins 1959/1996. If you would like any of these pictures just let me know. Thanks leslie I can try again next time I head up that way

Raymond & Lowell High
Kathy you wouldn't happen to be related to or actually know Raymond or Lowell or any of their 3 kids would you?

She is my aunt (my father's younger sister) and we have lost track of their kids, Sandra, Helen and Gary over the years.

Jane Ginderat Ferguson
All I have found on Jane's history is her Father's will where he mentions her as Jane Ferguson and a son Henry. Apparently his wife had already died as she was not mentioned in the will and no other children other than Jane and Henry. Her father's name was Abraham Ginderat born in Virginia abt 1715 and died shortly after Feb 1785 in Craven, now Chester, County SC. There is a copy of Abrahams will on my Ferguson/Prior tree on Abrahams page. It is on file at Chester County Probate Office and can be seen on Family Search under Chester County SC Probate records. It is in will book A1 page 270.
I have never been able to find anything on Jane's Mother. As far as Jane herself the only thing I have ever found is her tomb stone and a mention of her in Walter Brewster and Jean Agee's research.

Dorothy and Edward Sellers
My great uncle was John J Sellers and indeed he is buried in Wyoming and Find A Grave has a picture of his grave. Thank you for your help in finding the graves of Dorothy and Edward. I tried to contact the cemetery but seems there is no phone number. Gig Harbor Cemetery is also known as Crescent Valley Cemetery, as I'm sure you must know. It was my request that Jim Fargo is working on.

Kathy, That would work for me. I found it very interesting the info I found about John Jacob Sellers. He was the only boy among 6 sisters. Two sets of twins and on set of triplets. At one point they were known as the Black Hills twins and triplets. The different family trees have some great pictures of the family.
Thanks again for your help.
