Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hooray for summer! I look forward to helping you all out here in Washington State. Let me know if you would like some helps! I have summer off work, except for helping my folks along with their severe medical conditions. My long period of awayness (is that a word?)is over and I am back researching family graves and photographing local graves. 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 Rodig, Franklin, Stabbal, Morgel, Stockham, Jones, Lynch, Follon/Fallon, Sherrill, Spangler, Quick, Smith, Johnson, Ferguson, Hamilton, Davis, Crawford, Gardiner, Blick (deBlieck) and Hensley.

RE: Eberly in Iowa
Hi, I'm glad that you were able to connect the families.
I just went ahead and transferred the parents to you so the family can stay together.
Thanks for letting me know you found them.

Have a great day!!

RE: Johannah Moe Dean
Also in block 39 you have found a temp marker for Anna Olson (memorial 133759779). I think this may be Johannah's sister, Anna Moe Olson (see memorial 38913925)1879-1936. The John Olson temp marker (133652281) might be Anna's husband (calc 5 Jan 1866 - 28 Oct 1938). This would be the couple that raised Louise Moe Timpe's daughter, Lydia, that we discussed earlier. I can send Anna's death cert. if you wish it. I don't have John's.

RE: Showalter memorials
you asked:
Are you in touch with family, and do we know for sure they have been given the ashes?

Yes, and yes :-)

RE: Edgar and Lola Phelps in Evergreen, Everett
Thanks Tami,
You do good work.
Vera Smith Lent was born at Osage, MN Becker, county. I believe her dad was James Smith from Canada.
After her husband was killed, I believe that she was living with her brother, Earl Smith, along with her two children.
I was born just one mile east of their home, to a different Smith family. My uncle, Guy Smith dated widow Vera, and uncle Gerald married her sis, Buryle Smith.
So that's how we're related.
Gerald ran the newspaper at Clarkston, WA., and Gerald and Beryl are buried there.

Thanks for the search for Vera Lent. I would think that she would remarry. I found a Vera marker in that area, said, mother of six. She left one son, Morris, 84329710. Her first husband was Wm. Lent.
I have my cousins phone number, he's 96 and knew Vera. He's in your area.

Well, now I just read Lola's memorial, and it looks like my work. This is however the first time I've seen such a nice pic of the marker. Thank you. Nice work.

RE: Edgar and Lola Phelps in Evergreen, Everett
I'm going to look at that Lola grave.
I'm searching for Vera Lent. She was born at Osage, MN. about 1910, sis to Earl Smith of Osage.
She married Lent and had two children. Lent ran from a moonshine still raid, and was shot in the back and killed. Leaving widow and kids. He's buried at Linnell cem in Becker County, MN.
Vera went to Everett, WA area, and was last know, by my cousin, to be in a rest home in WA.
I see more then one "Vera" buried in that area, but don't know which one she would be. Help

RE: Edgar and Lola Phelps in Evergreen, Everett
Thanks for the tip on Lola Phelps grave. I don't believe that I've ever seen it. Lola was sis to my grandma , Mae Colgrove Smith, in Osage, MN. Both girls were born in NY. I stayed overnite in Lola's house in 1951. Had a great time with her grdchildren.
Thanks for the care.
