January, 2015
I will have limited computer access during January. I will make all updates as time allows.
* * * * *

When I walk a cemetery, I make a note of other nearby relatives, the section/area I am in and include it in my transcriptions. When you are researching a 'John Smith', it helps to know if there are other 'Smith' names next to him. It is very helpful having any plot information.
Some cemeteries restrict photo taking by non-family members. Having any plot information helps all of the photo volunteers.
When I first started, I just wrote down names without photos. Now I take photos of all of the headstones.

Quite often I find myself researching the folks that I create memorials for, adding additional information and linking as many as I can locate.

As time allows, I am willing to do some Oregon obituary research for others. This is my form of 'Pay It Forward'.

* * * * *
I will make corrections/additions to any memorial that I have created.

All requests are verified before I change the memorial.

RE: Obituary Citation - Lottie Martin
Hi Ann -
So glad you are interested in adding this information to her memorial.
"Late resident of 5253 NE 16th St, Portland, ..." - she passed "at a local hospital" on 23 Nov 1942 (no indication if it was a Portland or Salem hospital. Her Oregon death certificate at the Oregon State Archives will provide the actual place of death. I moved out of state in September so I am sorry to say I cannot volunteer to check that for you.

Daughters: Mrs. L. D. Lambeth (Salem), Mrs. Frances O'Conner (San Francisco), Mrs. Lottie Wagnon (Portland)
Son: A. E. Martin (Timber, Oregon)
Six grandchildren not named

Services with Clough-Barrick Chapel on 25 Nov 1942.

Burial: Mr. Crest Abbey Mausoleum

If this does not cover everything, please do let me know.

Best wishes.

RE: Spencer buried with Hannon
Ann, thanks for the prompt response. Yes...I do have a tree under called Pedersen family tree. Also, Minnie was married to Arthur R Spencer (1870-1926). There is no Hannon in my family that I am aware of. The circumstances of Minnie have been quite mysterious and the fact that she is in the plot with Philip Hannon increases the mystery.

Spencer buried with Hannon
Ann, I just learned about the Lugnet/Hannon virtual cemetery. I wonder if you know why Minnie Riordan Spencer is buried in the same plot with Philip Hanon and Sarah Kenny. Philip Hanon bought the family plot in which Minnie was the first to be buried. Minnie is my great-grandmother so I'm curious if there's a potential relationship with the Hannon family.
