Hi fellow grave-hunters. We aren't morbid, are we? No, we just want to find our relatives. I used to think that I didn't want to take up a piece of earth to place my bones and leave a marker to memorialize my life in birth and death years. But now that I'm doing family histories and research like my great Aunt Olive did for years, I'm reconsidering and wonder if 50 years from now someone may want to know where my bones are resting. hhhmmmm. My aunt spent most of her adult life conducting genealogy research and teaching it and I was very intrigued by her studies and the results. Now she's gone and I'm off on my own tangent doing genealogy and the great partner that goes with that is grave-hunting. I live on the Washington Olympic Peninsula in Port Townsend, a quaint little Victorian seaport and we have lovely old cemeteries here. I am willing to photograph anyone near me.|
Blessings to you all.

You should be VERY proud of Arvilla and the good Reverend George Nelson Smith!
I am not related to any of the Smith family but several years ago, after finding the grave of 3 of their children at Pilgrim Home Cemetery, http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=59363451 --- I became fascinated with the family and began researching them at the local library and Hope College archives. It led me to the history of the Old Wing Mission as well. It's all fascinating! I even wrote out this huge family tree because I just loved the work.
As far as I'm concerned, they were more likeable and open towards the Indians that settled in and around Allegan/Ottawa County and the city of Holland than our very own founder Rev. VanRaalte who seemed determined to chase them out. Sad really. The work they did was amazing.
I was able to visit Northport in 2012 to pay my respect and I respectfully transfer Arvilla to you :)
Hi Barbara can you tell me which person in the photo for Lyle Doolittle 69664754 is Lyle ? Can I use the photo for my family tree ? Thanks

Thank you so much for the headstone photo you took at Laurel Grove Cemetery of my ancestor, Herman Lloyd HANSBERRY. I truly appreciate your time and willingness to help others :o)

I have exchanged Christmas cards with my mom's, Helen Fry,cousin in Michigan, and some messages on FB for years. When I noticed his FB page was gone and no Christmas letter came, I googled his name and Chuck Taghon died in September. He was Evelyn Sherriff Taghon's son.
I just went back and reread your biography. It seems we are neighbors! I lived in Chimacum!, Lorrie
My grandmother was a sister of Evelyn, Clinton, Elaine, Althea Sherriff. >Her name was Arvilla Helen Sherriff Fry. She was born December 12, 1899 and died April 18, 1968.
She is buried in Priest River Idaho, Bonner County, with her husband Ellis Fry and son Lewis Fry.
The last of their children died about a year ago. Andrew, Earl, Lawrence, Clifford, Edward, Lewis, Helen.
I have begun a Sherriff- Fry Facebook page, and now cousins and distance relatives are joining our page, posting photos and family records. I can get you the names.
I think there might be another missing sister, but will need to go back and check. There was a sister named Jane.
|Joyce Chalmers||RE: Clinton V. Sherriff|
You are very welcome and yes you may use the picture in your tree. I do not know if there are other Sherriff's at Sunset/Ocean memorials. The Cemetery's number is 541-267-7182. They are open Monday thru Friday 9 to 5 pm. Give them a call to see, they are very helpful.
