Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy began 64 years ago when I followed my mother's and grandmother's conversations as they traced relationships of their friends and family.

My memorials are family members, then relatives of relatives. My childhood piano teacher and other early settlers, friends of my parents and grandparents were next. Being from a small Nebraska town, this can be quite involved. But interesting. Very interesting.

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.

RE: Mary Stansbury Dufur in Lone Fir
AS I indicated I can only be as sure as the information I find in my research. The information I have found indicates they were buried there. Keeping in mind death certificates are not always accurate. (For example my own mothers death certificate from Florida states cremated, however my mother is buried in Williamstown, Village Cemetery in Williamstown Vermont.) I appreciate that you have gone the extra mile to determine if she is buried where the death certificate states, it is people like you that make it better for those of us that cannot always verify the accuracy of the information found in the research. I will continue to research so that I can prove or disprove the location of her grave. Again thank you for all your time, trouble and hard work...

Baby Wegstiein
The baby's father is Franklin "Frank" P. Wegstein who married both the Davis girls, sisters.
His Find A Grave # is 81716959.

I got called away from my computer for a bit and didn't get his # in.
I believe that the baby's mother died in child birth, but can't find any record for it yet.

Thank you for adding them.

Mary Frances Griswold children
You posted grave information about Charles A Griswold, burried in Lone Fir in Portland.

It appears that his wife was Mary Frances Young Griswold. Mary was married to Frederick Gordon Young who died Portland 18 Dec 1885 and is burried in the same cemetary. Her Find-A-Grave information lists her name as Mary Frances Young Griswold. Her son from marriage to Frederick is my grand-father, Walter Woods Young.

Mary had 3 children when Fred died in 1885, Walter, Frederick V and sister Alice Alberta Young. All 3 were minors. If you have knowledge of Charles Griswold, have you heard of these children, especially since they were orphaned after the death of Mary Frances in June 1888 when she would have still been married to Charles Griswold.
