Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'am Retired and I enjoy taking Photo's to help People find their family. If I don't send A reply to all of you I still am glad that I could help and everyone have a wonderful day.

I only place the memorials on Find A Grave for the info of others and will add to or transfer the owner ship to anyone that has the need to care for the person.

If we can help each other with the info I will be glad to assist in any way I can.

I'am in the process of doing the entire Tahoma Cemetery in Yakima, WA, so they can have a complete data base on record of all their Memorials. I will also supply the local Genalogy Library with a copy for there records and then I will start on another Cemetery.

I'am retired U.S. Air Force (E-5) and a Vietnam Vet who enjoy's helping fellow Americans, and posting their Memorials is one of the best ways to keep their memory's alive and not forgotten because photo's live forever.

You have my permission to use any pictures I take for you in any way you wish, with my blessing.

I will be happy to transfer a relative to you, or make corrections/additions. Please use the EDIT BUTTON on "Correction Requests" for any changes and on transfers please INCLUDE YOUR ID NUMBER.

Hi Jerry,

Thank you for taking the photo of their headstone. You are very speedy, the same day that I made the request.

Hi, I forgot to ask if you happened to see Joseph Jr. near Sr. and Mary. If you took a photo, I can request it so you will get credit. If you did not, don't bother going out again. Thanks again.

Herbert Saywers & Pearl Snyder
Thank you kindly for the beautiful headstone photos! You cleared up a real mystery for me as there was quite a bit of confusion whether Herbert's name was Sawyers or Saywers--even the cemetery has the name wrong on their website! May I post the photos to my tree on I always give credit to the photographer.
With Gratitude,

Tahoma Cemetery
Thank you so much for the photo of the marker for William N. Treadwell and Emma J. Hurst Treadwell. I think pictures make the memorials so much nicer and also serve as further proof that individuals are indeed buried in that place. I appreciate your help and your dedication to those who have gone before us. Pat

Correction to Sherman Spracher's Listing
Hi Jerry,

You've done an impressive amount of work here. Thank you for adding these people.

I'd like to point out a correction to my grandfather Sherman's listing. He was not the son of Andrew and Ruth Spracher. Sherman's parents were George Michael Spracher and Buena Vista Baugh. Andrew was Sherman's brother.

I am Sherman's grand-daughter (daughter of Joe Francis Spracher). I grew up calling my great-uncle Andrew "Uncle Rayburn", although my Aunt Ruth called him "Andy". Sherman and Andrew were brothers--Andrew was my father Joe's uncle.

Sherman was a sharecropper in Texas during the Great Depression. He was married to my grandmother Bessie Lillie Bell Spracher from the time she was fifteen, until her late 30's or early 40's. It was a marriage lasting over 20 years. It would mean a lot to me if you included her full name, which was "Spracher" until her death.

Sherman and Bessie had four children, as you mentioned, Tressie, Jim and Joe, plus a child who died in Texas in infancy. He was buried in an unmarked grave in west Texas, except for a piece of blue glass. We went and looked for it in the 80's but couldn't find the exact spot.

My father, Joe, died last week on October 7, 2014. His body is preparing for cremation in Austin, Texas. He was born January 10, 1929 (although records indicate 1928 because he lied about his age to enter the Merchant Marines when he was 14). He was actually 88 when he passed. Jim died years ago. My Aunt Tressie died a few years ago. I believe all of Sherman's children have passed now.

Thank you for your dedication to this site,
Susan Spracher Macaluso
