Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my Van Riper-Lake-Whitmore tree for over 15 years. About 10 years ago, I started on my husbands Wilkinson-Christman tree. New Jersey is my prime research area. I have 2 grandmothers who came over from Sweden in the late 1800s. I have been spending a lot of time searching for their roots as well.

RE: Julia Ann Casperson
You're very welcome. I got all the Caspersons I could find. Unfortunately, the person who created all the memorials at St. Pauls (and a couple of other cemeteries in my area)made a LOT of mistakes and she doesn't appear to be an active volunteer any longer. I requested edits to the memorials, but I don't think they'll get corrected, so please check your records (dates) of your family members with the photo's I took.
Ira died in '98 at 66 years old
Julia Ann died in '84
Mary, was born in 1805
Rosanna died in 1928
Thomas (I think) died in '74
Also, I forgot to look for Wilkinsons (sorry) I'll check the next time I go there. Have a great weekend!

Harold christman
I sent you a text regarding his middle name and DOB. If you add the state of Oregon into the mix on ancestry you can pull up the wwi draft registration clearer on ancestry. Looks like this is your guy. Harold Rufus Christman. Ancestry has been adding new data, found some of my missing family a couple of months ago by the military stone records. Anything else I can help with just let me know, been doing this stuff for my family for over 30 years

RE: Harold R. Christman
Under the word Oregon are the letters PVT for military rank. The stone seems to be similar to others I have seen for military people from that era. I tried digging down lowered to see if any info there but nothing there.

Graves at Glendale
The photo of Harold is on his site. You can see weathering damage since the previous one done. There is no other info on stone. And there are no other Christman stone in this area. The stone for Oliver I will be posting too. I checked my email right before I left the cemetery and saw your clarification.

Graves at Glendale
You included a request for any Olivers that may be by the Christman grave. The Christman family are all listed in same row so most likely in same plot. I will be checking in morning if possible. Please do specific request for what Olivers you want. There are 52 listed as per the Glendale directory. I will look for them but I only do request specific and don't do row "mowing". Sorry
