Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a US Navy SKC(SW) retired and doing this just because I like to. I have received UNBELIEVABLE help with my genealogy research from several people on Find-a-Grave (and connected with long lost family) and will do the same in return, if I can. If you need any help with research in the Clark County WA or Multnomah County OR areas, just ask and I will do whatever I can to assist.

My primary surnames for research are indicated by my virtual cemeteries. If I manage a memorial and you are more closely related to the person than me, I will gladly transfer it to you upon request. However, please keep FAGs guidelines in mind:

First - Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Only request transferring of management if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Second - Transfer requests will be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Third - If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please contact the Find A Grave member who created/manages the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page.

Fourth - Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor/manager may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests must not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.

Fifth - The "Suggest a Correction" feature may also be used to submit corrections, an original biography, and family links to memorials that do not fall under the above definition. (Be sure to include the memorial ID#s for the family links and how they are related, father, mother or spouse. The original contributor/manager will make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses, provided the information is accurate.

Sixth - Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor. Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.

Fair winds and following seas, shipmate.

RE: James Reynolds marker
You are more than welcome! That cemetery is off the road, abandoned, and in the backyard of a private home! I knocked on the door but no one was home. It would be great to have that cemetery cleaned and all stone exposed that may be under the earth. It was thrilling to see the one you wanted is exposed. Enjoy! Kateri

Just got your message. I'll check out what you found. Sounds great! Meanwhile I still haven't found his photo. But I will!

You asked some time ago if his inscription could read 88 years old.

He has a civil war GAR marker, indicating he was a soldier. I don't think they would have taken an 86 year old man. Seems much more likely he was 58 when he died. Snow may never melt around here. I'll take a look when it does.

The stone has Dec. 21, 1906. This is what I will keep as find a grave has to put what is on the stone. I will put a note about the death record.

RE: Griffin Taylor
Latest news - No luck on the photo yet. I know I wouldn't have gotten rid of it and I certainly didn't give it away; it's in my house somewhere. (Things started getting really disorganized when my wife started her hospital stays 4 years ago, and I started spending more time in hospitals than at home! Hoping she can stay healthy so I can get things back to normal - that is, semi- organized instead of completely disorganized.

I did find a few photocopy images regarding the official history of the 80th OVI. Have you already seen that? I plan to share it with the owner of "ol' Griff's" (my father in law's words) site; maybe he'll post it. (I think I gave him some of what's already there, esp. the bit about being wounded in the wrist. But I don't remember for sure.)

RE: Griffin Taylor
Exactly! I'm still looking. I know it's around home somewhere!

RE: Griffin Taylor
A long time ago my father in law showed me a hamily photo of a man in uniform that he said he had been told (by whom I don't know) was Griffin Taylor. I'm looking for it!
