Bio Photo If you have a edit on a memorial that I have, please go through the "edit" button on the memorial and I'd be more than happy to do any edits you may have.

I'm new to all of this, but I do enjoy getting out and getting photo's for other people.

I am spending some time at the Douglass Cemetery adding in the different people and their headstones.

Elmer J. Hedler and his father, Johann Hedler
Hi, I found Elmer J. Hedler (1910-1988), but am looking for his father, Johann Hedler, who I think died 17 Feb 1937 or 1938 in Portland, Oregon. Would you know how to find his father's (Johann) grave? I noticed two other Hedlers buried in Portland, another in Lincoln Memorial Park, where Elmer is buried: Mamie G. Hedler (1887- 1982) and I wondered if that was his mother. The other person was John H. Hedler (1924 - 1991). I don't know if he is related to Elmer.

RE: Daniel T Michael # 50653679
That's awesome information! I'm just getting started and decided to do the michaels first since they're the side I know the least about. I'd always been told we were German but didn't know when the family came over. I truly appreciate this info.
If you have any suggestions on researching family history I'd love any tips you have.

Daniel T Michael # 50653679
I was researching some of my ancestors and came upon Daniel T. Michael. I saw that you had posted some information on him and his wife, Elizabeth. I wondered if you had any information on his parents, Henry and Christina (Karges) or her parents.

Kellum, Earl and Ada
I am not sure who you are but I just searched on here for my grandparents, Earl and Ada. Thank you, so much, for posting a picture of their plot. I have been to Memorial Gardens to look for it and have never been able to locate it. It was a shock to see but I so appreciate you taking the time to take the photo.

I'm not sure how you would do it but my Mother (Donna R. Kellum) and Brother (Robert E. Petersen) are buried at Memorial Gardens, also. I have photos of their name plaques on their pictures. Is there a way to link them to my grandparents?

Ok, now we have a mystery. Albert F Spalding is one of the 5 supposedly in the Spalding plot in section D. I took a (bad) picture of his headstone - but I know there are no Spaldings there - therefore his headstone is somewhere else, and perhaps the others are with him, the plot thickens. It will be another couple of weeks before I start on the 2000+ mysteries, but the Spa(u)ldings just hit the top of that list.

Vera Pickett was my father's cousin. I remember Vera fondly when I was a child on our jaunts up North to visit family. Would you consider transferring her memorial to me? I Thank You for your time. Vera Wilcox #69386853
