Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been the family genealogist for both sides of my parents' families since 1978. Doing research had used so much of my educational and work skills. I've learned so much about family, and revived so many wonderful memories, and disspelled a few family myths.

Clara Skillings
Could it been Clara Skillings you were tracking? I accidently deleted her and had to make another memorial for her. Sorry about that

RE: Theresa Holmes
I was pretty sure that is wasn't Theresa. I took the other pics just in case they were related to you. The person who helps me at Mt.Moriah is trying to update their files. She really is a big help, but she just about works by herself. If I find anything about Theresa, I'll let you know.

RE: Theresa Holmes grave
Sylvia, was glad to do it. The large marker just had the name Holmes on one side. I did take pics of Julia Holmes 1851-1918 William Holmes 1846-1926 Florence A. Holmes 1881-1928. Would you like me to post them on the Holmes grave request? Ed

Hi Sylvia,
I transfered the Find A Grave Memorial for Elphea Marie Goshorn to you to manage, and sent you an email of extracted information from newspaper articles about her and the traffic accident that caused her death.

RE: Oliver Bales and Rachel Howell Bales
You are welcome for the photos for Oliver and Rachel Bales. I was going to create a memorial for Elphea Marie Goshorn, grand-daughter of Oliver and Rachel, and daughter of Gilbert S. and Marie E. Goshorn, as I have the photo of the gravestoen for Elphea. It was in the same section and lot. I found out she was killed in a motorcycle accident in Portland. She was a passenger and the motorcycle was hit by a car. That was the reason she died so young. There was an inquest, and the grand jury found that the driver was not at blame as the accident was "unavoidable."

I will post the photo of the gravestone for Elphea Marie Goshorn on the memorial page I'm setting up. Let me know if you want me to transfer management to you after I'm done. I didn't see her listed anywhere on Find A Grave.

Dear Sylvia,

You are very welcome....when I take photos I always think about the person. The first thing I thought was "so young". It makes me sad. It was a honor taking the picture for you.

I see. That is what I am figuring is going on with a lot of other plots there as well that have spouse or another's name listed on the plot map. Have a great New Year!
