Bio and Links
Bio Photo "I will show you fear in a handful of dust." T.S. Eliot

We are not so much afraid of dying, as we are of no one remembering we existed at all.

We only walk this earth because of the people before us. Every name is a memory to a life, not just a branch in a tree. Sometimes all that echoes through time is a name, a date, a relationship, a headstone. But bringing those things together here is remembering the person who lived, and I am proud to be a part of this community of volunteers who spend their free time to send the message "you have not been forgotten"

Still active as of November 2014. If you have any information to add to any memorials I have created please let me know but use the EDIT- SUGGEST A CORRECTION feature. Please also use this feature when inquiring about a specific memorial, the comments section below is not helpful in directing me with a link to see what you are talking about.

PROCESSING EDITS: I know about the feature, but I don't blindly click all. Have patience, I will get to it, but I do check- I will also look for an obituary for you if its here in Oregon. So have patience, check back when you get the email, it might be worth a look.

DO YOU KNOW? Find A Grave will automatically process all untouched edits after 3 weeks. Yep. that contributor who's been ignoring your requests for years didn't just finally get with the program.

DO YOU KNOW? if you mess up a submission you can go to your own edits page, use the drop down menu to find edits you have submitted, find the edit you did and delete and redo if it hasn't been processed. Pretty Nifty if you ask me. Edits on Find A Grave are finally happening and they have fixed some of the flaws from the initial launch.

PHOTOS: I took the photo to help you! If you would like any of the photos I have taken for your own family tree, you are welcome to them. If its a family photo I added though, please contact me! I don't mind sharing, I have a public tree on that I will give you directions to for more photos (if I have them). Our ancestors should be remembered by all who want to preserve a piece of who they were. My collection is the work of many who believed in saving photos of cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents they never knew and then taking the time to share them with me. As we pass through this world, I feel better knowing my ancestors wont disappear and pictures forgotten if multiple people from all over have the key.

RE: Jonathan & Mary Bartholomew
Yes you may use the photos in your tree. FYI In Auburn Twp there is a Bartholomew Road.

Eveline Wheeler (part 2)
The darn message got sent before I was done! Anyway, I was going to say that you also have her listed as Evaline, but the headstone says Eveline. You can e-mail me directly at so I can e-mail you the picture if you'd like.

Eveline Wheeler
Hello! In my volunteering to search for the headstone of someone, I took a picture of Eveline Wheeler's to narrow down that I was in the right area. Unfortunately, it helped to prove my belief that the person I was looking for was in an unmarked grave.

However, I do have a picture of Eveline's marker that you can use if you'd like.

Could you transfer this memorial to Linda and Allen
DeHart. I'm also looking for a copy of his obituary. He was born in Enterprise, Oregon and died in Portland, Oregon. Thank-you very much for your help.

Alexander Parks - Woodland Cemetery
I went back to Block 22, Section 113, only the Raisbeck headstone is there. None for Alexander Parks.

RE: Alexander Parks- Woodland Cemetery
My apologies. When I went to Block 22, Section 113, all I saw was the Raisbeck headstone. I looked at the City of Des Moines database and entered Alexander Parks and it only came up with the one located at Block 21, Lot 50. After your message, I did some more research and see that there is ALEX Parks listed as being at Block 22, Section 113. I didn't see any Parks when I was there today. I will go back on Saturday and see if I can find a headstone for Alex Parks.
