Bio Photo Merry Christmas everyone! I look forward to helping you all out here in Washington State. Let me know if you would like some helps! I have a few weeks off work at the school, and am ready to help you on my days off. I am back photographing local graves for you. Thanks for your kind thoughts and prayers concerning my family. Hugs to you all!

My love for family history came from my parents and my grandmothers. Both of my grandmothers wrote down birth dates and death dates, and kept detailed family letters. And Mother loved to stop by every country cemetery she saw, while on their camping travels. They traveled around the country looking for family graves and new relatives. And had many exciting stories to share, and met wonderful families!

When we discovered that the Oregon Trail went through our Stockham family farm in Idaho, my love of history grew. And with it, sharing stories of my family and how they came west. What brave families to pioneer West!

I continue to hunt for family lines and fill in the blank spaces. Some of the families I am researching are Allen, Rodig, Franklin, Stabbal, Morgel, Stockham, Jones, Lynch, Follon/Fallon, Sherrill, Spangler, Quick, Smith, Johnson, Ferguson, Hamilton, Davis, Crawford, Gardiner, Blick (deBlieck) and Hensley.

Tami.. I am ever grateful for you and your friend(s) for taking the time and effort to preserve & photograph the burials in this large cemetery. I understand just how much effort and time this indeed takes. The photos you posted to his memorial are wonderful. I was able to enhance them to read the full data I needed for genealogical documentation and have given you credit for the photography. They work well as they are. Again, Thank you.

I meant to say God Bless You! Bet you know I really meant to say that, right? Take care.

RE: Rosanna Thompson
THANK YOU, Tami! I am thrilled that you found the grave of Rosanna "Anna" Thompson. This news just made my day! I had previously requested a photo for Anna and her son, John. The one for John was found but apparently the one for Anna was overlooked and I was told a marker could not be found. Thankfully, one of my cousins recently a photo for Anna and thankfully, YOU found the marker. We had been told a long time ago that Anna was buried next to her son, John, and now, thanks to you, we KNOW that she is.

Thanks for all of the additional information, too. I added the plot information to the memorial. S.E. (Samuel Emmet) Barlow, owner of the lot, is another of Anna's sons. He is buried in Oregon and is linked to his mother. John Barlow that is buried next to Anna is also her son.

I would love to have any pictures that you don't mind sharing. I'll send you an email with this request.

Thanks again, Tami, your time and your kindness is very much appreciated!

Hi Cousin Tami!
I was just thinking about you and thought that I would send you Holiday Greetings (even if a little late). I hope you and your family are well.

I don't have any new information to offer you, but I did add photos to the Morgels and Mogors, and Lamms. I have more photos somewhere but I still need to scan them.

I was right about the old photo of Frank, Sr. I do have what looks like an old original of it. I have no photos of his first wife Mary, whom you descend from, but only Magdalena, whom I came down from. I think I may have photos of her as a younger person, however I cannot identify some of my mom's very old photos. She isn't much help to me, either. She has been in a nursing home for two years now, ever since she fell and broke her hip. Her dementia is getting worse all the time.

I am hoping to someday find out more about Frank, Sr. and trace him into Austria. That is not the only stumbling block in my mother's ancestry, but it is the one I've been looking at the longest. I cannot find any passenger lists that establish any good information. If you ever come across anything, I would appreciate you passing it along to me.

Take care for now. Good bless you.

RE: Anna-Rosanna Thompson
WOW!!! Thank you so much!!! Mystery solved!! I can't wait to see!! The SE was probably her son Emmett and the 1941 possibly my grandpa. I could never get out there to do this. Greatly appreciated....

RE: Evans family in Baker Co. OR
Hi Tami -

You are welcome. Yes, I'm related to the Hartley side of the family Distant, but still blood line. As an example, Melissa Jane Hartley Evans was my 5th cousin, once removed. Actually, I didn't take the photo of her headstone. If you click on the photo, you'll see that I gave the credit to the one that took the photo.
