Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been active in genealogy for 32 years. I will do my best to locate and take photos of grave sites upon request.

The Find a Grave site has given me the opportunity to help others connect with their deceased family and friends. To me seeing the resting place of my ancestors is comforting, they are not forgotten. On some memorials we can find very interesting facts about the person and their life, I appreciate those that share the information with us.

I feel that our ancestors are very important and when we share our finds and research it helps us all. My ancestry site has helped me connect with family that I have never met or knew about. It's so fun to find cousins and learn more about the family history.

Happy hunting to all of us.

P.S. If your are a photo volunteer PLEASE take a decent photo. I have been noticing that some photos look very hurried, and don't show the entire stone, or a lop-sided photo. It must be very disappointing for the requestor to receive a partial headstone photo.

I like to take an extra photo of the view from the headstone, it really helps to see the surroundings and gives a person a feeling of visiting the graves themselves.

Feel free to use my Find a Grave photos for your ancestry.

Holly, Will you transfer rights to update Glen Papworths information. He is my fathers brother. Glen took his stepfathers last name of Papworth.

Hi Holly! I hope you are doing well. When ever I go to Pilot Butte Cemetery I think of you. Maybe one of these weekends we can meet and cruise the cemetery.

Hi Holly,

The memorials in Masonic Memorial Park have been transferred to us to manage so I fixed Tillie's name and will be transferring her to you as soon as I send this message. Just wanted you to know what was going on.

RE: The Willards and Eleanor Duff (Smith) Willard
Thanks for doing all the linking, re: the family of Dr. G.K. Willard.

I'm actually not related to the Willards - I believe I'm (distantly) related to Dr. Willard's wife, Eleanor Duff (Smith) Willard. I believe her parents were Henry Green Smith and Nancy (Mosby) Smith (neither is in Find-a-Grave, currently, AFAICT).

And I agree that Eleanor likely died in Thurston co., so I'd be tempted to just add that. Also, I'm nearly certain she was born in Boone co., Kentucky (based on Census records for what I believe was her father).

Finally, she married G.K. Willard on July 02, 1834 in Edgar co., Illinois, if you want to add in that somewhere.

Thanks again!

RE: Vesta Barnard , Greenwood cem. Bend OR
She was 16 years old when my father was born in 1906, she had 3 siblings and I only have the date of birth on one. I have had a very hard time tracing down this side of my family tree I think because of various spelling of the Strait name. Thank you for all your help.

Vesta Barnard , Greenwood cem. Bend OR
Re Vesta Barnard I think you left the pic of her stone I would like to tell you she was born in 1890. I do not know the date, she was my paternal grandmother.
