Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy began 66 years ago when I listened to my mother and grandmother trace relationships of their friends and family.

As a Find A Grave photo volunteer for Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery, I sometimes stumble 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?

Use the "edit" tab to request additions, changes, transfers. Do not burden me with the task of searching for the memorial.

RE: Martin Thorsen in Lone Fir
Thanks Linda for the prompt reply. Sorry, still learning stuff about Find A Grave and I missed the "unmarked" note. Please photograph the daughter's marker and area. Thanks a million!

RE: Anna Sundberg in Lone Fir
Thank you so much for checking! It is much appreciated. I guess her marker has been lost to time.

Have a great day,
