Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born & live in Central Washington State. I had thought that my family was small but that has not been the case. Genealogy has taken me places that I could never have imagined. My family line includes Kobernik, Daily/Dailey, Bishop, Krider/Crider, Monninger, Foutz, Southward/Southwood, Swearingen, Hainline/Hanlein, Miller/Mueller, Guy, Waggoner, Ralls, Hart, Drews/Drefs & Griep. My Kobernik line comes from Germany (now Poland) and the others mostly from Fulton Co, IL; PA; MD; & VA.
I enjoy working on my family but also helping others to locate their ancestors. In 2012 I took photos of most of the graves at Terrace Heights Memorial Park, Yakima, WA. (A few of the temps cannot be read).
Please let me know if anything needs to be corrected, transferred (if not my family) or removed. You have permission to use any grave stone that I have posted. Happy Genealogy Hunting!
P S - If you are trying to find if someone is at Terrace Heights Memorial Park in Yakima you can now go to
and type in the name, etc. One thing I noticed, however, that a number of them have the same month and day on the birth and death day. It is probably either the birth or death date but not both. The years are probably correct.

Thanks for beautiful photos on the above sites--I have updated the dates of birth--this family had alot of birth dates that couldn't be identified correctly even with cemetery records. Thanks again, R.

Joan, Thanks so much for the beautiful photos on the above memorials. Your work is outstanding & I appreciate your time in locating these sites. I have been adding memorials for the past few days and the memorials are being linked to their families all over the United States. I see that Blk 82 appears to be the mausoleum & columbarium--I have added alot of memorials for Blk 82. I started a virtual cemetery for all my additions to the cemetery & will be opening the cemetery soon. Many of the sites here will link to families I research in other locations. Again, thanks for your help. Richard
