Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been so fortunate to find people, along my journey, that have helped me with ancestry information, tips, leads to new places to look, corrections where I have erroneous information , etc. that I feel taking photos for Find A Grave is a tiny way that I can say THANK YOU and pay it forward.

I urge you to use ANY photos that I have taken on your tree or anyway you wish. I believe they are YOUR relatives and I have just been the messenger to connect you. Add the photos anytime and anywhere!

RE: Grave locations
Wish I could be of help. My mind is full of the memories of our family trips walking from our home in Sellwood and alond Milwaukie Ave. to the cemetery. The hours spent as a family caring for the graves of my Dad's sister and Grandmother. Then the times later in life with my wife after we had placed the permanent markers there. I remember the times when delivering papers of riding my bike on the road behind the cemetery and stopping to place a token rememberance.
Yes, you might sometime when you are there pay a short sisit to my young aunt Mary and great Grandmother Sarah just to let them know I still remember my Dad's labor of love with his family.

Thank You so so much for you time. I really appreciate you.

Many thanks for taking time out of your hectic schedule of activities to get the pictures, Carolyn. They are terrific, as always.

By the way, Nathan makes a good point. When we see a woman's name on a grave marker that says "Beatrice Forbes Perkins" or some such, we're conditioned to almost assume that her maiden name was Forbes. Yet, there are several other plausible scenarios, including the possibility that Forbes was her birth middle name, or that Forbes was a surname from a previous marriage.

But, in dealing with such a dizzying array of possibilities, we are johnny-on-the-spot and must make the best, most educated guess we can. If we're proven wrong, there's no harm and no foul because we gave it out best shot. And, of course, these errors are easy to fix when corrective edits are submitted.
