|Bio and Links|
I started looking for identity of these strangers in a box....a box of photos belonging to my father who passed when I was a litle girl...(Reynolds, Lee, Baker, Bate, Carrithers, Strickland, Rogers, Potter, Stone)He was a wonderful man adventurous and loved the out doors and he would have loved this technology and I so wish he was here to tell me the family stories again now that I am old enough to pay attention to the details. I am grateful to learn anything I can about our family history of those now gone and to find and chat with a distant cousin is such a blessing. So I have worked on our entire family tree for almost two decades now.|
My mother-in-law who has now passed also entrusted me with her family information (Frantz, Davis) and photos which I think should be available to all.
My Aunts and Uncles have also given me old photos of my mother's family (Gerling, Huot, Barrett, Ferguson, Hoffman) and so want to share them. I love my family and hope to help preserve the memories of those gone. I am thrilled to learn stories about them and sometimes even get a glimpse of a photo or drawing or painting of them.
I know I am not the only one curious about their heritage and am willing to photograph any headstones in my area. I do work full time as a nurse, so give me plenty of time for your requests. Please feel free to use my photos for your family records. I am not a glutton for needing my hard work recognized but if you copy them it is nice to post where you copied the photos for a reference to others... I only post a few on here and I might have more for you... so cousins, please contact me I would love to swap info. If I have your family member on here please write me as I would love to transfer them to you or if you prefer for me to watch over them please give me advice as to what you might like written on their biography page or send me an obituary for them. I truly want their memorials to be available to those interested. God Bless.

Do you know if there are any pictures of John's first wife, Edith?
|Dave Hansen||RE: Joseph EA Ryan|
Hello, can you give me the memorial number you are referencing? I do not have a Ryan in my managed memorials so I am guessing you are referencing a photo I added to a current memorial. Since I have added about 7500 and I cannot search them easily I will need a reference number to make any correction.
|Billie Jasper||DNA testing|
Hi Kristi, It is so good to hear from you. I am so excited about this and will contact you soon.
|Mr. Jean Coston||RE: Mary Huot and Lloyd Barrett|
I'm just doing "clean up."
|Mr. Jean Coston||Mary Hilda Barrett|
One other thing to fix, her husband's name.
Its Lloyd Lemuel Barett.
|Mr. Jean Coston||Mary Hilda Barrett|
In your bio for Mary their two errors, the name of
Goldendale cemetery is Mountain View.
In Hoquiam it's Sunset Memorial Park.
|Dunwandrin 1||Cleva Burrows "Dollie" Chamberlin|
The following, is information I have/had (prior to seeing your message), regarding Cleva "Dollie" (Burrows) Chamberlin. Thought it might interest you.
Dollie (as she was called) may have had as many as seven husbands in all! She eventually came to Ferndale, WA also. Here she married Samuel Rockwell who lived in the house in Ferndale that had belonged to Dollie's mother, Emeline. It is thought by some kin, that she married "Sam" just to get that house! Looking at the obits of her siblings, may give us an idea of some of her husbands.
-Mrs. Minnie Stevens,
Former Resident of
Ferndale, Dies here
Mrs. Minnie Stevens died at her home, 2530 Yew Street, early today,aged 63 years. She was a former Ferndale resident and had lived in Bellingham eight years.
Relatives surviving are the husband, W. H. Stevens; three daughters, Mrs. Henry Hansen, Mrs. Paul Sorenson, Bellingham, and Mrs Fred Thednes, Iowa; three sisters, Mrs. B. Bockover and Mrs. J. Keller, Ferndale, and Mrs. William ZIMMERMAN, Portland; four brothers, C. M. Burrous, Drue Burrous, and Douglas Burrous, Ferndale, and John Burrous, living in the East.
Funeral announcments will be made by the Monroe mortuary, Ferndale.
MRS. STEVENS PASSES AWAY EARLY ON MONDAY
Mrs. Minnie Stevens, better known to many Ferndale residents and friends as Mrs. William Meekins, for several years a resident here, passed away early Monday morning at her home in Bellingham. Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at two o'clock at the bellingham Pentacostal church, with Rev. Copley officiating. Interment was made in the Woodlawn cemetery under the direction of the Monroe Mortuary.
Surviving relatives are her husband, W. H. Stevens; four brothers, Charles Burrous, Dru Burrous, Douglas Burrous, all of Ferndale and John Burrous, in the east; three daughters, Mrs. Mary Hansen, Mrs Paul Sorenson, Bellingham; Mrs. Fred Thednes, Iowa; three sisters, Mrs. B. Bockover, Mrs. J. Keller, Ferndale; Mrs. William ZIMMERMAN, Portland.
- According to Lewis N.'s newspaper memorial (oldest brother of Cleva), Cleva (Mrs. Dollie CHAMBERLAIN) lived in Portland, OR. Lewis died Feb 1937.
- According to the obit of her brother (Douglas) Sept. 17, 1940, Douglas was survived by "....three sisters; Mrs. J. M. Keller, of Bellingham; Mrs. B. F. Bockover and Mrs. Sam ROCKWELL, both of Ferndale."
- According to the obit of her sister (Hattie Bockover) Feb. 11, 1941, Cleva ROCKWELL lived in Ferndale, WA........." two sisters, Sarah Keller, Bellingham, and Mrs. Sam Rockwell, Ferndale" survived.
- About 1954, C. M. Burrous had a visit from his brother, John Burrous of Bronson, Kansas. A dinner was held at the home of Mr. & Mrs. James Roberts. Other guests were: Mr. and Mrs. S. Drue Burrous; and their sister, Mrs. Dollie ROCKWELL.
- According to John Henry's (brother of Cleva) newspaper obit, Cleva CHAMBERLAIN lived in Ferndale, WA, in 1963.
- According to Samuel Drury Burrous' obit (brother of Cleva) July 25, 1967, Samuel was survived by ".....1 sister, Mrs. Cleve Chamberlain of Portland; 1 brother, Charles of Ferndale.....".
Apparently Cleva Chamberlain was a resident of the Columbia Manor Nursing Home, located in Portland, OR. I have located a letter postmarked Oct 23, 1976 (Portland, OK), with a letter from Cleva to Oscar & Beulah Burrows, that has a post card from THIS nursing home in it. The letter itself was signed 'Aunt Dollie'. However, I've contacted the nursing home that's at that address (as of 2002), and it's since changed hands, and they kept no records of the previous owners.
Some say......William's brother (Bert) married Dollie's sistor (Mary). I have not been able to prove or disprove that.
(Susan J. Wick, has indicated that Cleva's name is 'Cleva Susan Burrows.)
|Dunwandrin 1||RE: Burrows Family via Cleva Burrows aka Dollie Chamberlin|
Thank you for the information regarding Cleva (Dollie) Chamberlin. She's been rather difficult for me to obtain information on. I had also heard she was called 'Dollie'. One of her brothers, was my great grandfather (John Henry Burrows - whom I remember while I was a child). John's only child (Oscar Madestis Burrows) was a wealth of knowledge regarding the Burrows family/ancestors.....and I myself have accomplished a lot of research on my ancestors. Thank you again....for the additional information (some, of which I wasn't aware of)!
|Valarie Vine||Henry Jory|
I connected Henry to his mother and father, Stephan and Barbara Jory. If you like, I can transfer Henry's memorial to you. You have added wonderful old family photos! A picture of Henry with his parents would be a nice addition to his memoral.
|Linda Gose Rieck||RE: Is your Anna (Reynolds) Gose my Noah Reynolds b. 1808's sister?|
Kristie, it would allow us to fit a piece of the puzzle together very nicely if Anna and Noah were siblings, but we can't prove anything yet. We struck out once again at the Lebanon courthouse and also at the library. We have searched several times for a will and once again, nothing found. We are looking for the "Holy Grail" and will have to keep searching! The Reynolds family is proving to be our greatest challenge.. Good thing that we like a challenge!!
