Bio Photo Dear family and friends,

I have ancestors in Clackamas Co., OR; (Gibson, Drake, Douglass; Palmateer, Tucker, Mayfield, Closner); Wasco Co., OR, (Mayfield, Ledford, Driver, Pratt, Palmateer); Washington Co.; Multnomah Co.; Clark Co.; WA; ND and MN (Humes, Thompson); IA (Scott), other countries, Switzerland and Scotland.

My Oregon ancestors have pioneered from the Barlow and Oregon Trail. I have been collecting genealogy for years. Enjoy helping others with their family lines.

My collection of obituaries are from my family, extended families, and others who should be remembered. Also on file are obituaries from families of the family book, East Goes West, by Alta Kraft. The descendant reunion is held every year from the book, East Goes West.

When time allows I like to add family photos to my blog. Sometimes I will add interests that I find amusing. Yes, some of these photos will be of cemeteries.

Hope this note finds you well,

Craig (Tucker) Humes

La Croy vs. LaCroy and Mr. Burrell
Hi Craig,
I am related through Horner and Weddle and I am a cultural anthropologist. I specialize in this type of research.

I just want you to know about a message I left for Mr. Burrell about LaCroy versus La Croy. From research experience, I know spelling variations like this can mean success or failure. The first memorial created does not mean it is THE correct one. Until one spelling is actually proven (with primary citable source) over the other, both should stand. Please keep your memorials intact.

Here is the message I left for Mr. Burrell:
Hi Martin,
While I agree wholeheartedly with the duplicate memorial rule and I appreciate your attempts to eliminate duplicate memorials, I have to disagree with your statement to another contributor about the LaCroy/La Croy name by virture of which one was created first. One spelling is correct and the other is incorrect so until someone figures out which one is the RIGHT one and proves it (with a preponderance of citable records), both memorial spellings should stand.

Greetings, [Redland Pioneer Cemetery]

I wrote this to another graver, Craig. You are doing OK.
You have created at least four duplicates of the LaCroy family. Your dates are later than the existing dates for the very same memorials by others.

Duplicates are never allowed. The problem that you faced was adding a space in the surname ... La Croy. This does not compute as a new name.

Please remove the following names

(1) La Croy, Baby
(2) La Croy, George
(3) La Croy, Joel E
(4) La Croy, Melissa

Thank you, Martin

Welcome back
I'm glad to hear from you, I was concerned. You have always responded so quickly. Just wanted to let you know, you were missed.
Have a great weekend.
