|Bio and Links|
My paternal family moved to Washington State in the late 19th century from Ohio, Iowa, and Pennsylvania, while my maternal family came from Iowa and North Dakota (originally from Ireland) and Minnesota (from Germany).|
I enjoy searching in these states for my relatives and their relatives and friends.
In real life I have been a librarian for over 30 years and a politician for 20, currently a port commissioner, and formerly a state legislator, a city councilman, and mayor.
Moak, Good, Mielke, Stender, and Redmond are some of the lines I follow.

No matter how distant I think family always takes care of the memorials better. I transferred Carrie and her husband. I also have an Alice Vadney. Is she also a relation? Possibly Carrie's mother?
Are you related to Carrie Vadney? If so would you like her memorial transferred to you?

Mr. Moak, I meant to say I'll never get to Washington but was thinking of Aunt Helen's birthplace and typed it instead. I also want to thank you for the edits. It's much appreciated! Linda
|Linda Lemming Couchman||Thank you!|
I was so pleased that you took the time and effort to add photographs of the gravesite of my aunt and uncle, Roy and Helen Lemming. I'm sure I will never get to North Dakota -- this is the next best thing! Warmest Regards -- Linda.
|Martin Burrell||RE: Hazel Moyer Guggenbickler|
I know this is a very big favor. Maybe too big for me to ask of someone that I have never met. The Guggenbickler family is very important to me. They are some of my closest family. There were 12 children. Two were born in Germany-Austria. At least two or three were born in Oregon before they moved to the home place in Frances, Washington. Their parent's are buried their in a little Catholic cemetery. At one time the town had about a thousand residents.
I always thought that one day I would spend a week or two researching all their obituaries, wedding announcements, etc. Would you be in a position to help me find their obits? It would be wonderful to discover that you lived in the area.
Do you have access to a newspaper index? I would be willing to pay any fees. I hate to leave my wife. She would have a very hard time getting up if she fell. She had polio at 5 years old and now it's really taking a lot of starch out of her life.
Sorry, I just had to ask. My grandmother was Theresa [Guggenbickler] Dick. Her husband was a Northwest Mounted Policeman that was with the first group to enter the Klondike during the gold rush. One winter, he was ordered to chase after a murderer who led him 1500 miles north up the Klondike River by dog sled. They almost starved to death on the way back to his station.
Thank you, Martin Burrell, Ch3555@comcast.net
Please erease after reading.
|Mr. Jean Coston||John Linsbeck|
I love what I do for you,
no matter how long it takes.
