Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a genealogy junkie for the last 40+ years. Got hooked when my Dad showed me the parchment family tree that my Grandfather had created on our Swedish ancestors. My mother's side is mostly German and ?Irish/English? If anyone has a link to Butlers in Rochester, Monroe Co., NY around 1850 I would like to hear from them. Thanx to all you contributors out there!

While I appreciate the work of Find a Grave, use it frequently to update my own family, I'd like you to know that a family member searched for my mother, Edith Ketcheson, was very upset and alarmed that her photo popped up. We'd like you to take it down. The rest of the information is useful and we thank you for adding it to the data base. But, could you be so kind as to take her picture down?

Hello Vita,
I'm still doing my photo project at Lincoln Memorial mausoleum in Portland, and have just added photos for Raymond and Marie YEKEL to the memorial you created. If you'd rather not have the photos, please contact me and I'll remove them.

Theodore Sheldon Hurd. I believe he was born in Cosmopolis, Grays Harbor, WA, rather than Cosmopolis, CO.

Minor, I suppose, but could lead another genealogist astray!

Mr. Hurd was my first cousin once removed. His father was my grandfather's brother.

RE: Re: Jane Nunnenkamp - 70642528
Thank you for attaching Jane's parents. I was so disappointed that I just found her and that she died in 2011. I wish I would have found her sooner and contacted her. My mother always wondered what happened to her since she was only 4 when her mother died. My mother always said how special her aunt Jessie was (Jane's mother) - graduating from Northwestern University at 37 and not marrying until 44, having her child and then dying at 48. How very sad. And it looks like Jane had no children - so I may be the last one to really remember her!

Dr David E. Weber, # 73322160
Hello Vita,
I'm doing a photo project at Lincoln Memorial Park mausoleum, Portland, Oregon. I found the crypt for David E. Weber and his wife, Frances L. Weber. I've linked these two together, and uploaded my photos. If you don't like my photos, please contact me and I'll remove them.

The Oregon Death Index and SSDI shows David as born 4 May 1901, and died 13 Feb. 1984 in Multnomah County, Oregon, and his wife as Frances. His Funeral Notice: The Oregonian, Portland, Oregon, February 15, 1984, names his wife, 4 children and siblings.
