Bio and Links
Bio Photo The genealogy bug has bit me hard! At least, when I have time to do so! My mother's side of the family is fairly well researched on several lines — all the way back to John Alden on the Mayflower for one line, but my father's side of the family had never been researched. It's led me to "meeting" a second cousin, and fellow Find A Grave member, Carolyn Gardner Sturdy along with two third cousins in other states who've become my friends. Together, we've made a great team chasing one lead or another, chipping away layers of information, to make some wonderful discoveries along the way. So much fun!!

I've created virtual cemeteries of ancestors by family name to help aid anyone researching the same ancestors.

I fully give permission to use any photo I've uploaded in the spirit of sharing family genealogy.

If you wish to send me a private message, please do so via the "Suggest any other…" link under "Edit" on any memorial I manage. Please include your email address for easy reply. Thank you!

Lovisa Anderson
Hi! I believe that info must have come from someone's family tree and was apparently their approximation of his death date. I appreciate your clarifying it and I have updated Lovisa's memorial accordingly. Thanks!!

RE: Seth & Thankful Hurd
I'm totally unrelated and am happy to pass them on to you. Maybe you will be able to complete the family and make the final links. Happy trails!

Thank you for contacting me with an update on Mary Todd's (#160917915) death date. Can you provide a source for your date. Thank you.

Richard Reagan's Parents
I double checked my source for his dates - it's a transcript from 1980. Then I noticed the ages of his siblings. It's 23 years to next youngest. I suspect that someone requested this link and I didn't catch it. The link is broken now. Thanks for catching this.

Eva Todd
Hi Shannon,

I just went on Eva Todd's site and there was no husband linked, so I linked Charles to her again. Thank you.

Elizabeth & Marion Watrs
I'm not for sure whether Marion and Elizabeth are buried next to each other. I would suggest for you to call Lincoln Memorial Cemetery in Portland. They have really good records. They will be able to tell yoi.

Effie & Frank Douglas
Hi Shannon

I have received 4 emails regarding suggested corrections for Effie and Frank Douglas. Since these corrections are all about name, dates and places of birth/death and link to parent the first three choices under the "edit" tab should be used rather than the last choice "suggest any other correction or addition". The last choice is for information that can only be added that way such as biographical information.

Submitting corrections in this way allows the manager of the memorial in question to add the changes with a simple click on the "Accept" and insures the right change to the correct memorial.

RE: Crown Hill Cemetery
I also searched around but didnt find anything for Earl there either. They add newspapers quite often, so hopefully something pop up soon.
