Bio and Links
Charles V. Waid (Chuck) born in San Francisco, California, married his 9th cousin, Barbara L. Brown. We have 100's of Massachusetts ancestors.

Lived in Oxford, Massachusetts in the early 2000's, for 3 years just to document our ancestors, and now back in Bonney Lake, Washington. Have been doing genealogy since 1979 and full time since 1996.

My wife and I both descend from Lot Conant and Experince Mitchell. Both men coming to America on the "Ann" in 1621.

I ONLY maintain our families and their family members. I will transfer members of those families if they are not direct ancestors of ours.

We are always happy to share genealogical information about our ancestors with our "cousins".

RE: Woods
Excellent. Wish cemeteries had the time to add people. I've had a terrible time contacting cemeteries in IN trying to find complete death dates.

RE: Woods
Please let me know if he is there. You might also request a headstone photo.

RE: Woods
Hi, I double checked the database in the IOOF and he is not listed there. I did hear back from the library:

"According to the Washington Birth Index, Ernest James Woods was born June 25, 1929 to Ernest M. Woods and Eva Morefield in the city of Yakima."

They did live in Yakima at the time of his death so it doubtful he is in the IOOF. If you are interested in finding him, you might try to contact the Tahoma Cemetery and see if he is there. The burials on F/A/G are posted by family and volunteers and are not all of the burials.

RE: Woods
Hi, they are distant relatives. I checked the IOOF database I have and the memorial in IOOF. There are a few WOODS in the database w/ no dates but all have names.

When Christine quit F/A/G, she turned all of the memorials over to me. I have a child listed for Ernest and Eva. My tree shows Ernest James Woods born 1930 and died Mar 1, 1933 in Yakima.

I typed an obit for Eva but the contributor hasn't added it yet. I'm related through the Morefield's.

duplicate of memorial 140358573

Usually if there's a duplicate memorial, the oldest memorial trumps the new one. I created the memorial on 6 Nov 2010, and memorial # 140358573 was created on 22 Dec 2014. BUT if the person who created the newer memorial wants to, I will be happy to transfer the memorial I created to them so they can manage it.

RE: Charles S. Dow
No, I am not related to Charles Dow.

I have been researching in the Oregon State Archives- mainly for people buried in Lewis and Clark cemetery and ran across the two listings of records for Charles S. Dow---the intent for naturalization filed in 1880 Clatsop county and the citizenship in 1885- again for Charles S. Dow.

I suppose it is possible that it could be for the son---although the son would have been only 7 or 8 years old in 1880 (wasn't he born about 1872?)and his middle initial is "R" - not "S".

Or maybe there is another Charles S. Dow in Clatsop county.

It is interesting that the census place his birth in Vermont. It must be some other Charles Dow at the Archives.

Thanks for looking at it though

Thank you for your very quick reply to my transfer request. I would very much like to hear about the Rice family as I just came upon them this week.
I tried to send you an email, but the link would not open up. You may contact me at and I will let you know what I have already found. We may be 7th cousins or so.
Thanks for your time.

RE: Marsh
Chuck - Thanks for the prompt reply. Yes, I am related to Willard P. & Althea Marsh. They are my paternal great-grandparents. My grandfather is Arthur E. Marsh. I would very much appreciate your transferring their memorials to me.
