|Bio and Links|
I live in Oregon east of Portland and at the mouth of the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. My husband and I live across the street from and old Douglass Pioneer Cemetery and that's where we enjoy taking a lot of our walks. We have some of our family, some neighbors and church friends buried there.|
I am enjoying working on our family trees, its hard not to take pictures of other graves, I know what a blessing it is to have help from others as I search to put the pieces together.
I received a picture request and it was a real "Find A Grave".
The person was buried in 1935, I don't know how many years this tree has been growing and still is growing, or if it was planted there or not, but this is something to think about. The tree is about 50-60 feet tall.

|Bob Wilson||RE: Bates|
Thanks so much for your hard work on locating my Bates clan! I really appreciate it!
I don't recognize any of the Bates' at the Stark cemetery as being part of our family tree. I noticed Sutliff Bates appears to be the patriarch; I don't think he is connected to our bunch.

Thank you for taking pictures of the McGreer family-can I have permission to copy the photo for my family tree. Sincerely, Donna

Hi Janice...I am standing very near her burial site and looking to the north as I took this photo. The tree really isn't very far away. It is a beautiful Cemetery. I love fulfilling the requests such as yours. Family is so special no matter how long they have been gone from us.
Sincerity yours, Gail
thanks so much for the transfers.

I took pictures of all little stones around the big stone. Lucy H. Herman Alice A. Emily Hubert Oran, there was a stone for an Ernest with 1898 as the only date, but no Margaret. I have more requests for Moravian so will look elsewhere for her as she died in 1961 and may not be buried next to them.

Janice, I've added the information for Jim White. He isn't a relative of mine, so let me know if you would like his memorial transferred to you. I transcribed that section of the cemetery last summer, and it makes me happy when a family member finds the memorial that I set up. I see that Nathan took pictures for you....he does such a great job. Regards, Juelette Fadness
|Nathan Haines||RE: James R. White|
I just looked at your profile page. You live not far away so you are well aware of the weather. Oops. Way to go Nathan! :-]
|Nathan Haines||RE: James R. White|
Yeah, they do not water the grass at Lincoln Memorial Cemetery. They are trying to survive in our messed up economy. Right across the street from there is Willamette National Cemetery which is funded by federal tax dollars and there is no dry grass there. They water that place until it is like a swamp with water pouring down the roadways like a creek. It looks really nice though.
I'll get a pic when the grass gets green in a few weeks. :-] His stone is right next to a roadway and is in real good shape. I go there a lot. It is not like I have to make a specil trip up there. I might have to go maybe 50 feet out of my way? I don't think that will kill me or anything like that. We have had a very nice warm summer here this year with almost no rain which is a wonderful treat for us Oregonians. The weather is changing now and we have had rain several times in the past few days and are supposed to have more for the next week or so. That means the grass will start greening right back up soon.
