June, 2015
I will have limited computer access during June. 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.

I did move his memorial to Belcrest based on the marker.

Salem Pioneer's website still lists him as being there; they normally say if the person was moved but it does not say that.

We took all the photos in Salem Pioneer a number of years ago and apparently did not find a stone for him at that time. I did find out later that we had missed a few. It was the 2nd cemetery we did so we were still new at taking photos. I suspect we may have got off course somehow. It never hurts to look again just in case it got missed.

RE: Horace Eldriedge
I think I agree with your finding. Just finished some tracking down. I think my mistake was putting the marriage date for his father and mother on the wrong mother. (Got it from One of the documents I looked at had a date of 1924 for Lola's marriage which makes sense. Trying to track down if Lola and Clarence are buried beside each other. They are in the same cemetery where as Lelia is buried in Newburg Friends cemetery.
Thanks for the push to do some further diffing.

Thank you for your reply concerning Horace Elderidge.
I got most of my information from concerning parents (We all know how accurate they are, ha ha). I will indeed check out your leads. Thanks again for filling me in. I'm working on the Ruble family and it is almost impossible to keep up.
