Bio and Links
Bio Photo In the last few years, I have been creating memorials for my family, as I discover where they are buried. This is still an on going project.

Recently (Aug 2011), I transcribed The Bay City IOOF Cemetery. I have created a spreadsheet of this Cemetery, taken photos of all of the headstones and put this information on FindaGrave. I have tried to research something about the person and link them with their family members.

I have completed photographing all of the headstones at the Fairview Pioneer Cemetery. I have also received from the Tillamook Pioneer Museum a listing of all of the graves that are in This Cemetery, along with a map. It is quite a small cemetery and it is quite overgrown, there are not many headstones left that are readable.

My next goal is to transcribe the cemetery at the Sunset Heights Memorial Gardens. Thank you to everyone who helps me out on this journey.

I found your memorial and am curious if you are related? I'm searching for my 3rd Great Grandfather, Shubal Starkweather who was born in 1779 in New London, CT according to his US Army enlistment info. I'm not finding much online and am curious if I can find a descendant. Thank you for your assistance!

Alice, are you able to call the cem. there (I see all the work you do!) Could would or can you call them for yourself to make sure she is not there? Also thinking only other way is to find the funeral home and contact for burial.....

Da....gee Alice, was in the back of my mind, kept thinking I knew who make the memorial... but did not recognize the owl nic. I kept thinking if you knew me would be a response :) so when you just said a friend told you and nothing more, I didn't think it was you.

Sorry, please ignore and delete my messages below, was good to hear from you, you are the only one that helped me, so double sorry, pls forgive my impatience.

Find A Grave Memorial# 106781837

This is my grandmother's sister and when I found her memorial (a long time ago) I requested a photo of her headstone. I live in Kansas City Mo. and will never be able to travel to see it.

I received this response in regard to the request.
The general problem they reported is:
Cemetery office has no record of this person

They also reported, specifically:
The Grand Army of the Republic cemetery office, in Snohomish, WA, informed me
that there is no record available.

Due to this problem, we believe that this photo request can not be fulfilled. As
a result, we are removing it.

I read your profile Owlisnapp... how did you post a memorial for her here? And where is she, why is there no cem.record for her? How did you make a memorial for her? I have a copy of the Death Index and only says who her parents are etc. does not say where she is buried.

RE: lillian v. taylor
OK, thanks, I am just clutching at straws. He must have been locally famous to have had the airport named for him, even though it has not lasted, so I should try the papers and local government.

I am trying to locate Moulton B. Taylor, the aero engineer who invented the Aerocar. he has no memorial so I trying to find him through his wife, Lillian Vermeil Taylor. In 1955 they lived in Longview, Cowlitz County WA, where the Kelso-Longview Airport is named Molt Taylor field. Have you any helpful info regarding this Lillisn V Taylor?
