Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, I'm Katie! I'm 31 and live in Lyons, Oregon. I love everything history related, especially old cemeteries, houses, barns, books and photos.

I work full-time, am a full-time stepmom, and now a new mom! My first baby boy, Reid, was born 20 Sep 2014. Please be patient with me! I will get to edits as soon as I can, but am unfortunately not able to process them every day.

My own family names includes the surnames Baptiste, Reid, Bennett, Bales, Fiester, Densford, and Hampton. I am also researching my husband's lines, including the surnames Garrison, Follis, Kirsch, Fiester, and Phillips.

I collect antique photographs, particularly those with names on them, and try to match them up with other researchers on Find a Grave or Ancestry.com. It's so much fun to unexpectedly add something to someone else's search and I hope someday the favor will be returned!

I transcribed several cemeteries in the Silverton and Gervais areas in 2002-2003. I have also used Ancestry.com to find additional information about these people. Any and ALL information that I have is already listed on the memorial.

Please feel free to use any gravestone photos that I have posted for your personal genealogical use.

Myerl and Lydia Rimpler
I want to thank you for creating memorials for my grandparents, Myerl and Lydia Rimpler, from Walla Walla, WA. I was thrilled to find them here, and am in the process of adding to them. God bless you for your love and concern for the dead, and your passion for keeping their memories alive!

You have contributed info on two graves. You might want to add a little more information.

Find A Grave Memorial# 125229471
Find A Grave Memorial# 120966239

Susan Savage, 22, and Patrick Oliver (local Walla Walla boy), 21 were the first victims of the serial killer Robert Yates (now on death row at Walla Walla Petitionary).
In 1975 the young couple were picnicking on Mill Creek, near Walla Walla, when Yates happened upon them while practicing his target shooting in the same area.
Patrick Oliver was shot three times in the head before Yates turned on Susan and shot her twice.
Yates buried the couple's bodies under a pile of brush where they were found within days. Yet it took a further 25 years before the families of the couple would find out they were the first victims of a serial killer, when Yates admitted he was responsible for the murders.

Thank you very much for the transfer.
This will go a long way in getting some other memorials corrected.

BTW: I like your profile. It sounds like you enjoy your work and are easy to deal with.
So many folks cite FAQ's and why they WILL NOT do some thing.
Keep up the good work.
Mucho Gracias.

#6319265 Matt Baker
Matt Baker was my grandfather, Faye Baker (Jarmin) my grandmother. They had 7 children: Forrest A. Baker about 1919, Lynn Clayton Baker 1921 (my father), LLoyd G. Baker about 1923, Anna Helena Baker, About 1925, Vera F. Baker, about 1928, Lola Ruth Baker 1933, and Roy Elmo Baker 1935. All deceased except Lola. Faye was previously married to Long and had two additional children Harry Long and Ester Long. I have not traced this info yet.
Thank you for your work. Faye was indeed alive in the 1940 census in Silverton. I believe you are correct that she died 1941. The Baker homestead was just out of town. I have a hand written deed for the property.
