Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Diana (Sturgis) Greb. My husband, Richard, and I celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary April 4, 2014. We have 2 daughters and three grandsons.
I have a copy of The Jefferson Cemetery (1861-1990) published by the Willamette Valley Genealogical Society--I am taking the bio information from that book. If anyone wants a complete copy of the infomation, I will be happy to send it to you.
The family names I research are Sturgis, Sturges, Ritter, Spencer, Carnaby, Greb and Schwindt.
I had to add this sunset picture that I took at Maui on August 29, 2009--I love to take sunset pictures--I did NOT do anything to the picture!

You can see copies of the Linn County DCs on the Linn Genealogical Society web site--www.lgsoregon.org

NOTE--I have taken digital pictures of all the DCs that I have added to findagrave. I have taken the DCs (1903-1963) for the following counties--Benton, Crook, Curry, Gilliam, Grant, Harney, Jefferson, Lake, Linn, Morrow, Sherman, Wallowa and Wheeler. If you want a DC for someone in those counties, let me know and I will look and see if I can find them for you.

I also give Find a Grave Staff full permission to transfer any of my Memorials to who ever wants them upon my death. Hopefully this will help eliminate What I call Dead Memorials.

Want me to transfer a memorial to you?
I would like to give away every non-related memorial to people who have more information to add, so if you would like me to transfer a memorial to you, don't hesitate to ask; in your request, please include the memorial number (or a link to it) and your own Find-a-Grave member number.

John Bailey Yarbrough
Hi Diana,
That John Bailey is going to be the grandson of the one I'm looking for. His father was James M (1820-1894) and I'm wanting John B born in 1792. He was the dad who brought the family out in 1845 and settled in the southern Willamette Valley. He was a brick mason by trade and I'm not sure what happened but he sold his property to a guy whose name I dont remember at the moment who is now referred to as Oregon's first potter. I'm assuming the clay in the soil was better suited for pottery than bricks. Thanks for the transfers also. I'll get them all linked together and take care of them until closer family asks for them.

RE: Epley Transfers
Diana,
You are a genealogy research angel. Thank you so much for all of your work. I'm not sure about transfers yet. When I started, I had no idea that this project would get this big. What I need to do is start at the beginning again with John Bailey Yarbrough which means I should probably bring my files to Linn County and start researching the genealogy society files on him and his children. I'd like to get more of an idea about them as people instead of just names. Jen

Thank you for the death cert. It will just help family genealogy. I do not know this lady, but any info that can be added is a help to those searching. Some contributors are overly strict with what they will allow. Don't put this on here, don't put that on here. Think most of us just want to further the searches. Thanks for all you do.

I was so grateful to find the DC of my father's brother, Charles Alfred Flanary. If you would like you can transfer them to me? I have tried to attach as many relatives as I can find and adding new ones. Thanks for you time and efforts!

Thanks for this. I have mixed feelings about these postings though I myself post photos of newspaper obituaries. The bottom line is that I'm glad for the info.

OK, neat. Looks good. Thanks for telling me.
I found these Haines as I was looking for somebody else. I checked in the past and did not get very far on this family.
I just gave it another whirl and as it turns out this guy does not look to be related that I know of.
This Russell Haines' tree goes clear back into the 1600's where his ancestor was a Haynes. It was always Haines from that point on.
This branch first settled in VA. My branch came in the 1600's and were nowhere near VA until the 1800's.
