Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Oregon east of Portland and at the mouth of the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. My husband and I live across the street from and old Douglass Pioneer Cemetery and that's where we enjoy taking a lot of our walks. We have some of our family, some neighbors and church friends buried there.

I am enjoying working on our family trees, its hard not to take pictures of other graves, I know what a blessing it is to have help from others as I search to put the pieces together.


I received a picture request and it was a real "Find A Grave".
The person was buried in 1935, I don't know how many years this tree has been growing and still is growing, or if it was planted there or not, but this is something to think about. The tree is about 50-60 feet tall.

Harold has two find a grave memorials; one by you #119062787 and one managed by Dan&Barbara #109548676. I don't know how to remedy this but I am sure the two of you can figure it out.
If I might make a suggestion, the cemetery is known as the IOOF Cemetery (International Order of Oddfellows), located in Grass Valley, Oregon.
Sincerely, Nancy Fields

RE: Norman Lowell Jones
I didn't think that they were that great. I'm just now starting Windows 10 and their photo app is hard to use. I want windows 9 back!

Orville Hall
Although I know this cemetery quite well, I was unable to find a headstone for Mr. Hall. We searched well beyond the area covered by the description of his location, so I had to conclude that there is no headstone. The foreground of the area photos I uploaded show where his marker should be based on the description. I attached a brief comment to one of the photos. El Toro Memorial Park is really lovely and visited all day long. So sorry I couldn't provide a headstone photo for you.

Clarify Request
Hi Janet

Sorry! I noticed you do not manage the memorial for Carol Sumner. I apologize for the confusion. My request would be for a transfer of Dwayne Sumner's memorial.

Many thanks for considering.
Rob Sumner

John Bowers #52636787

I've looked for his for 3 years since you've submitted a request for it and I've finally found this rascal. His headstone was very hard to read in a cemetery full of like-headstones, so I decided to rub everyone of them to see what I would find.

Transfer management?
Hello Janice

I am writing to respectfully request if you would consider transferring the management of the memorials for Dwayne Sumner and Carol McCormick Sumner to me? Dwayne and Carol are my aunt and uncle. My father Robert (Dwayne's brother and last of the Sumner siblings) died two years ago and after coming across this website, I am trying to link the family together virtually as I gather information. I appreciate your consideration.

Warm Regards,
Rob Sumner
