Bio Photo I'm happy to make corrections and additions on anything I put in; however, PLEASE USE THE "EDIT" BUTTON and "SUGGEST A CORRECTION"

I'am Retired and I enjoy taking Photo's to help People find their family. If I don't send A reply to all of you I still am glad that I could help and everyone have a wonderful day.

I only place the memorials on Find A Grave for the info of others and will add to or transfer the owner ship to anyone that has the need to care for the person.

If we can help each other with the info I will be glad to assist in any way I can.

I'am in the process of doing the entire Tahoma Cemetery in Yakima, WA, so they can have a complete data base on record of all their Memorials. I will also supply the local Genalogy Library with a copy for there records and then I will start on another Cemetery.

I'am retired U.S. Air Force (E-5) and a Vietnam Vet who enjoy's helping fellow Americans, and posting their Memorials is one of the best ways to keep their memory's alive and not forgotten because photo's live forever.

You have my permission to use any pictures I take for you in any way you wish, with my blessing.

RE: Mary L Bebout Headstone
Thank you for the plot location info. I am learning about using Find A Grave the hard way, I guess, I hit the process button before I clicked on the "Accept" button and couldn't get back to the edit request you sent to hit the "Accept". So, if it came to you with a decline message, that was not intended but my mistake. I've not used this before so I don't have a clue as to how the reply arrived to you. Maybe the "Accept" turns to "Decline" if I click on it and everything is okay. I'll find out next time I have an edit come in.

Did you have any luck with locating the name "Georgia Ruth Bebout" in any of the records to see if this is who the initials stand for on Mary Bebout's grave marker? If not, is there someone I could call at the cemetery that might have that information? Thank you for all your help.

We are searching for my Great Grandfather, we've tracked him to Yakima WA, and believe this his grave site. I also have found documentation that his birth year was 1884, and find it very possible that his grave is marked with the wrong birth year for him. We know from the 1940 census report he married a Burlah Carey Foster born in 1894.
Thank you so much for this picture!

RE: Mary L Bebout Headstone
Thank you Jerry. I have been in contact with my cousin, Lisa, she had some information I didn't so there might be another possibility. Mary had a daughter, Georgia Ruth Bebout Legg who died of Black Pox sometime after the 1920 census and before her husband was remarried and had a child by the 2nd marriage in 1928. Assuming of course that they didn't divorce. Georgia and her husband James were both working at the Firland Sanitorium, Richmond Highlands, King County, Washington where their daughter was a patient and where Josephine, the daughter died in 1926.

If the initials are G. R. B. there is a very good chance that this is Georgia Ruth Bebout.

Thank you very much for responding to me about this. If you have access to any information about the possibility of this being Georgia Ruth, please let me know.

Mary L Bebout Headstone
Jerry, Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you again for taking this photo of my Great Grandmother's monument. I'm not able to clearly read the inscription above her name, were you able to tell what it says by looking at the stone itself? The best I can tell from the photo appears to possibly be a G R B____. Is there any chance it is the initials for George Bebout? There is also a birth record for an unnamed Baby Bebout 26 Dec 1913, if not George maybe this baby.

I read in your Bio that you are undertaking the task of listing all the monuments in the Tahoma Cemetery in Yakima. Yeah....for you. If it turns out that this monument is not shared with Mary and George then if you have or do come across a monument for Mary's husband, George M Bebout I would love to know about it. At this time I don't have a record of where he is buried.

Thank you again for being so kind, quick and doing this wonderful work for our families.

Cheers to you for being a retired USAF man, my father was also. Thank you for serving our country in so many ways.
