Bio and Links
Bio Photo My McEwan grandparents divorced when my Mother was 2 in the 1920s. She never knew her father, even though there were only two McEwans in the telephone book. My own father made connections with him and we met. He died shortly after that. I was so curious about him, as he was an unknown and I started rooting around the library in college. Never did find any particular reason for the divorce, but it certainly gave me the "itch" to learn more and do research.

I am glad to make changes, corrections and transfers. Please follow the guidelines of Findagrave and use the edit tab at the memorial.

Happy Hunting!

RE: Edith Mellum
Hmmm... that is interesting that you would say that....

When I sent the edit to you you had two names in her last name field... Lilleby Mellum.

Both names were there.

I still have a copy of the original edit that I sent you. I am looking right at it. It shows that you had two names in that field.

I sent you an edit through the edit system for you to approve and process.

Then, I followed that up with a narrative message to you explaining why I submitted the edit to remove the name "Lilleby" from her last name field.

So, either you fixed it by accepting the edit without looking at it (using the edit processing tool), or someone else has access to your account and accepted the edit, because it is fixed now, but there were indeed two names in that field when I sent it to you. If they hadn't been, I would not have gone to such lengths to submit the edit and then send you a courtesy explanation of why I was suggesting you remove one of the names from her last name field.

Oh, well, whatever works.

Thanks.

Do you want to copy the obit I have before I delete my Memorial? No relationship. Linda

You state "His parents were James Bogie and Jane Wirt both of Kentucky". Where did this come from? All the evidence I have seen makes his parents George W Bogie and Minerva Jane "Fanny" West so now I'm confused.

RE: Alta Smith/Starks
It looks like you choose to delete the one of Alta Starks. I'm glad you moved the obit to the Alta Smith page. I think that was the best choice.

Alta M Smith/Starks
Your memorials for Alta Smith and Alta Starks
#80057362 and #145740267 are the same person. They are both nice pages. She lived a mile from my house.
Some of the neighbors around here knew her as Alta Smith and others knew her as Alta Starks.

Lakeview Rolette County
In Rolette county there are two Lakeview cemeteries.
The north one is abandoned and in poor shape. the one on the county line for Pierce and Rolette is the one with a photo of the gate. When I went there I see someone thinks they are the same. One burial was #123129957 Amos Graber which is a Duplicate of
19832630 in the proper cemetery. How did the TWO Lakeviews get so messed up?? There are several other ones also.

Burger's- PS
I forgot to mention something. I know nothing about these Burgers. I have a few names of the graves all around them. None of them are probably related in any way but thought I would run them by you just in case you might know since family relations often times get buried near each other, and if they don't have the name of Burger I would have no idea if they were or not.

Wesley Franklin Burger
Hi,
I finally got pics for the Burger grave site. I put captions on the area shots as usual.
Wesley's stone is sunken into the ground pretty bad. The whole bottom of the stone including part of the numbers and from there down were all covered over with wet dirt. I got the dirt all dug out and cleaned up. Later on, this summer, the sun will be up high enough that I think his stone would get full sun and make the picture look better that way.
You can see downtown Portland from his grave.

RE: Infant Son Hurst
Greetings

Thank you. Most often with old monuments your dealing with marble and it develops bacterial stains and so turns the surface black. water and a stiff rag cleans it off.

Also, plant growth like material turns it black. Granite holds up much, much better.

I have cleaned many a marker. Many are beautiful underneath.

Infant son of Amy and Ezra Hurst
Greeting, [Find A Grave Memorial# 112311502]

His grave marker is located in the Aurora Cemetery.

The image that you posted does not qualify as a proper image. What were you thinking to leave such a worthless black box. It is more a black hole in space.

Please, remove it at once. It stands as an embarrassment to the spirit of Find A Grave.

No image is better than this one.

Good day, Martin Burrell
