Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am pleased to announce that Mt Pleasant has been completely photographed. That is those stones that are visible. The photos are not posted on FAG but I check the request list against my database.

All those photo requests are most likely unmarked or illegible grave sites.

Any memorial page I have created I have a picture of the headstone.

If you want a photo officially request one, don't bury your request in a spouse or another family members photo request.

Too many volunteers are now asking for other volunteers to do their research, please try and do your own on your time.

I take responsibility ONLY for the information obtained from the headstone unless otherwise specified by me. There are very few exceptions.

Due to the changes and procedures for adding addition information it is very time consuming to include the source. Find A Grave DOES NOT provide a way to show where the information comes from.

In light of these changes and the automated edit system, which makes it almost impossible to deny acceptance of changes and addition, I have been transferring all memorial pages to those wishing to make edits. This too has become too time consuming.

Therefore, in order to include the changes whether the information is CORRECT OR NOT I feel I am being forced to accept all edits. I hate this part because I have had quite a few people send edits only to resend two or three times in order to make corrections.

If you find errors send corrections but do not, I repeat DO NOT ask me about the information posted or hold me responsible for the additions. This goes against all genealogical best practices, but the only other solution would be to take down all the memorials and pictures I have posted.

If you find an error,double listing or double picture please let me know so I can correct the problem.

I have in the past used a picture of the cemetery gate/sign with "Office couldn't locate a burial for this person" imprinted on it. If you get this posting and do find a picture of you persons tombstone, let me know and I will remove it.

James Joseph Thompson, Sr. #24675450
Hello Karen,
Thank you on behalf of so many, for doing this huge amount of photography and creating all of these memorials. I certainly understand your frustration with all of the requests.

On one of them, as in the subject line above, James Joseph Thompson Sr., #24675450,(Veterans Memorial section of Evergreen-Washelli, Seattle) may I ask that you transfer management of the memorial to me? He was my uncle, and I would like to add a bio and sponsor the memorial.

I log into Find-a-Grave as CKinney, and my email address is

Thanks so much,

Clair K.

Roscoe Powers
Thanks for the photo of the marker for Roscoe Powers! Interestingly, the date of death is ten years apart from that shown on the memorial page, so I will look for further proof of that date. Thanks again.

Harriet Worster
Thank you so much Karen, for taking your own time into snapping a pic of Harriet. You know she died the same year I was born, 1951. I can tell you I'm looking about the same as her headstone is looking....aged! Ha ha ha.
Thanks again for a job well done!
