Bio Photo JUNE 3, 2016
I have begun working on St. John's Cemetery again. There are many headstones that the earth has taken over and they take a lot of time to uncover. I have photographed most of the missing visible headstones.

I have added over 12,000 memorials, and am working on adding bios and linking families together. If you see "birth date is approximate", this means I calculated the date of birth on a 30 day calendar based on the information on the cemetery card or plat book.

I am happy to transfer the memorials that are not immediate members of my family tree (most added memorials are of no relation). I am also open to adding any information and making corrections since majority of my information comes from cemetery cards or headstones, which are not always accurate.

I have done family research for my father's side of the family since 2004.

I received the trouble report from Find-A-Grave that you sent to them Jul 1 of this year. The cemetery is St. Johns Cemetery. Would it help you to know the plot number is Plot: NW-2-F ?

Thank you for your help...

Thank you Stephanie, I lived in Louisville all my life, but currently reside in Texas. On my next visit home I need to go down to Portland and just visit. I never went there while in Louisville because I didn't know where his grave was or where to find the information. Thanks so much.

Stephanie, I am just seeing the photo you posted on my great uncle's memorial page back in January. I am disappointed that he doesn't have a marker, but I really appreciate the effort you gave to find his grave. I do have a question. Was the photo you posted just a general photo of the cemetery, or is it the actual area he was buried? I often have wondered who takes care of the records for Portland and if he is indeed on the books. I do know he is buried there per his death certificate. Thank you so much for your time and energy.
Warm regards,
Claudia Jansen Hartley

I appreciate all the work you have done on findagrave. Awesome.
But there is a problem with Margie Torreyson's page. She was not born in 1823, but born in 1923. I know it's just a misprint, easy to happen, but she is the sibling of Molly. and her parents were born in 1888 and 1889. This family is related to my father.
Is there anyway this could be fixed? Her Memorial number is
155991085. Thank you so much, Stephanie.

I just noticed that you transferred Peter's memorial to me several weeks ago.

Thank you! I appreciate your work on Findagrave.
