Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy began 65 years ago when I followed my mother's and grandmother's conversations as they traced relationships of their friends and family.

As a Find A Grave photo volunteer for Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery, I sometimes stumble - literally - over a neglected or forgotten grave marker. I add information or create memorials for the lives I discover in this way.

I've lived in Portland since 1985. Do not presume to lecture me on the city of today or yesterday, the history or current status of Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery.

If you have rules and procedures and requirements for memorials and photos, don't expect me to follow them. As far as cleaning headstones? Don't be silly. I clean off the bird ****, wipe the dust, pull the weeds, rinse the mud. What good is a photo where the name can't be seen or the dates visible?

Agnes Pace Cline
Thanks for your efforts to locate Agnes P. Cline's grave. I had concluded she probably had no headstone, but did not know that she is interred with her brother Augustus. I appreciate your taking the time to look, and for doing it so quickly!

RE: Oscar Kiser input
No, Linda, I wasn't aware of his photographic prowess. Until now, I just have a skeletal view of the Kiser family (and their relationship with the H. B. Hall family. This is great info and I'll definitely do more work in this area. Thanks for the update.
