Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my own family tree since about the Fall of 1999. I started this project by doing transcripts of my own family's cemeteries and taking photos of the stones. I am sure this is how most folks get started doing this kind of thing.

On my father's side, I am researching these names; Campbell, Clouse, Donalson, Edwards, Elam, Engle, Faris/Farris, Gillum/Gilliam, Harris, Hodge/Hodges, Hutton, Keck, Owsley and Riddle at this time. These surnames are from Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Texas, with ties to England, Germany and Scotland.

On my mother's side, I am researching these names; Cantley, Clay, Gibbs, Rorrer/Rohrer and Turner at this time. These surnames are from Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, with ties to Switzerland, Germany and England.

You have my permission to use any photos posted here as long as it used for research and not for profit.

RE: 15418520-Oscar McWilliams
I need a closeup pic of his headstone. The inscription should be there. Tawny gave me a partial of the inscription.

You are welcome. Familes should be kept together whenever possible.

I think you will have to link him to his father since I transferred him to you.

I have entered another child of Alfred & Rachel Keck, Sarah and her husband William who are buried at Terrace Heights here in Yakima, WA. Would you like me to transfer them to you?

RE: Ransom & Celia Elam
Hi Ed -
You are most welcome! They aren't much better than the first ones that were posted, but the light colored marker and the direction of the sun, make it difficult to get a good picture.
Have a good one!

I have transferred him over to you.

Thank you very much for your help. I do appreciate it. I wanted to let you know that I have been working on this cemetery for a while now. The lady who made most of these memorials is now deceased and I'm doing my best to fix the mistakes and duplicates. It's an ongoing process, made easier by help from careful researchers like yourself. If you don't see a correction that you suggested made immediately, I just wanted to let you know that I'm not ignoring you, just being careful and diligent in making sure I don't compound mistakes. Thanks again for your help.
