Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy began 66 years ago when I followed my mother's and grandmother's conversations as they traced relationships of their friends and family.

As a Find A Grave photo volunteer for Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery, I sometimes stumble - literally - over a neglected or forgotten grave marker. I add information or create memorials for the lives I discover in this way.

I've lived in Portland since 1985. Do not presume to lecture me on the city of today or yesterday, the history or current status of Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery.

If you have rules and procedures and requirements for memorials and photos, don't expect me to follow them. As far as cleaning headstones? Don't be silly. I clean off the bird ****, wipe the dust, pull the weeds, rinse the mud. What good is a photo where the name can't be seen or the dates visible?

Thank you for your information Linda. The Rebecca in question and the infant Frank may have been part of that family, but the burial location of Isaac's wife is now presently unknown and to be determined. Thank you again, and best. Scott

Hi Linda, please forgive me as I jumped the gun moments ago. I requested a grave marker photo only to realize after the fact that her grave is unmarked. I hope my request goes to you so that you can dismiss it out right. I do have a question however, which has to do with how the information was obtained on her Find A Grave memorial regarding her date of death if there is nothing there to read? She was my 3rd GG and she did not die until 1900, as I have her memorial card saved by her daughter, Martha Luella DAVIS//Alkire. I guess I'm trying to figure out if this is my Rebecca Davis's grave, or not. Thank you for any information you can offer. S

RE: Thank you
Yes, my research shows they are all related. I have submitted requests to link then on Find A Grave. Your comment did held in my research though.

Thank you
Thank you for Fred Erz's grave photos, our explanation of the location of his grave helped to verify his identity.

I'll send my email address to your email address. Thanks. No doubt you'll like this: I got kicked out of a cemetery this morning. LOL

RE: Hamshaw plot
Linda, you would be going above and beyond the call of duty, but if you are ever near the site, a close up and one from 2-3 ft. away in a resolution of 200 or 300 of Fannie's inscription would be wonderful. Thank you. Steve

RE: Hamshaw plot
One last question. Re: Fannie M. Hamshaw's inscription on the large monument, with a good, clear, high resolution photo, I can do a lot with Photo Shop to make out previously illegible text. On the other hand, sometimes you just have to throw in the towel...did it appear to you that the text below her name/dates was legible to the eye or was just too weathered to be deciphered? Just for the heck of it, here is a link to Fletcher and Fannie's
page on our family history website:
