Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi all. I've had an interest in family history since I was very young. Following my grandfather's death in 1994, my aunt gave me some of his old records, including a baptismal certificate that was written in Polish. It was then that I began doing some serious research into my Borowski, Schorer, De Lille, and Day family lines. I feel very strongly about remembering and paying tribute to those who have gone before.

Please take a moment to visit my unforgettable mother:

Marie Constance De Lille Burke

My beloved brother:

Richard Michael "Rick" Burke

My grandparents:

Henry De Lille
Elise "Elsie" Day De Lille
John Anthony Borowski
Mildred Mary Schorer Borowski Bowen,

A sincere thank you goes out to all the kind souls who leave flowers and messages on the memorials I've posted here, and also to the many wonderful people who are so willing to voluntarily post photos of my loved ones' headstones. It truly means more than I could ever say.

Thank you!
I appreciate you taking the photo's of James & Agnes Walsh for me, would've loved more info on the tombstones though, but that's okay.

Thank you so very much for finding these important people. They were the official original owners of the town of White Salmon, Washington.

"William H. Sherrett, Find A Grave# 64467626
Please. remove your duplicate grave marker image.
There is no known reason to have it. Why? Was it done to get you points?"

The above message was left for me on one of your entries. This is a 'nice' one from Mr. Burrell as he is usually much more rude, controlling, arrogant & condescending. I was shocked the first few times he gave me 'suggestions' for my entries & told him never to contact me again. I see he has left you some messages too that are not so bad. I am reporting him to Find a Grave as my blood boils every time he sends me a note. I had put a slightly better photo on William Sherrett's entry. I will delete it as I am certainly not trying to 'get points ' as Mr.Burrell insinuated.

Images for FAG
Find A Grave now allows much larger images to be posted on their site. It would be kind of you to provide images with a larger pixel count so that the image can be seen larger the fine details can be seen. A pixel count of about 200,000 and up is about right.

Thanks for your work at Mt. Calvary Cemetery.

Zelma Siemon
I tried three photos for Zelma for a clear photo. Unfortunately, the one I added is the best one. I will try again when the marker is dry. That will probably help. Lin
