Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.
You are welcome to use my photos, please let me know if you wish to use one and please give photo credit whether they are mine, my mother's (Frances Brindley) or from a collection which I have specified.
My Sherriff ancestors came from England; my Brindley ancestors from Kentucky, England, Ireland, and Germany by way of Canada. The Voices came from England, some settled in the brand new city of Chicago, some moved from there up to Michigan, including my great-great grandfather, some stayed in thatgrowing city. The Sherriffs and their in-laws/parents, the Grays/Greys, also came from England and stayed in New York for a couple years but eventually settled in Empire, Michigan. The Brindleys came down from Ontario, Canada and were among the pioneer families of Pickford, Michigan.
I have been working on locating or completing memorials for their descendants on both my maternal and my paternal sides. Some of the names I want to memorialize are Brindley; Sherriff; Rowley; Scarberry; Voice; Cryderman; Couturier; Ames; Anderson; Ball; Elliott; Fry; Gray/Grey; Smith; Van Wormer; and so many more.
Blessings to you all.
The business my husband and I run is for vinyl record collectors. We publish record price guides for the collector and dealer in vintage vinyl music. That is so far removed from grave memorials, unless you consider that we are helping to memorialize vinyl music as much as you and I choose to memorialize our ancestors and their grave markers.
Contact me at my alternate address.
For the record-collector, check out our website at and read more about vinyl; you can also read the Ask Mr. Music column, written by my Jerry.@

RE: Darrell M. Wallen
Barbara, I'm trying to remember if I ever answered your question about Darrell. It's been quite a while since you asked but just in case I didn't answer...yes, Darrell was married to Donna Voice. Did you have other questions about him or his family?

RE: Thanks again
Well - - I can't find Roslyn in the records to go back and get a better photo. No good deed goes . . . . . . . as they say. I'll try again. But I don't need any credit - please.

I did some checking and deleted the incorrect information. The automated corrections are nice, but I don't have time to check every correction that is sent to me. So thanks for the information.

Sorry, no. I can scan in his death certificate, though.
