Bio and Links
January, 2016
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.
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.

Have A Heart
RE: Stonehocker
1st) I have been trying to search the Washington State Archives for an Esther D Leiper. She was born 07 Sep 1924 and died 03 Jul 1972. Per her Washington State Death Index, she died at Dayton, Columbia, WA. I can't find a Columbia County listed on the Washington archives. I am try to find her maiden name. She was married to Elmer H Leiper.
2nd) I am also looking for Elmer's mother, Lilias Ethel Huffman Leiper. Again, the Washington Death Index states that she died 30 Jan 1978 in Walla Walla County, WA.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, Ann
Thanks for the photo. Ida D. Richardson is my great grandmother's daughter and I stem from her brother, Felix Duke. I am surprised that this picture was posted a little over a week ago!!

FAG photo Jesse & Nellie Kamery
Hi Ann

I'm writing to ask permission to use your photo of Jesse & Nellie Kamery in Mount Crest Abbey Mausoleum for my Ancestry tree. My credit will read: Find A Grave photo taken by 'Ann'. I've found my photos on both Ancestry and Find A Grave with someone else taking credit, so I know how you feel.

Thank you
