Bio and Links
Bio Photo My paternal family moved to Washington State in the late 19th century from Ohio, Iowa, and Pennsylvania, while my maternal family came from Iowa and North Dakota (originally from Ireland) and Minnesota (from Germany).

I enjoy searching in these states for my relatives and their relatives and friends.

In real life I have been a librarian for over 30 years and a politician for 20, currently a port commissioner, and formerly a state legislator, a city councilman, and mayor.

Moak, Good, Mielke, Stender, and Redmond are some of the lines I follow.

RE: Hazel Moyer Guggenbickler

I know this is a very big favor. Maybe too big for me to ask of someone that I have never met. The Guggenbickler family is very important to me. They are some of my closest family. There were 12 children. Two were born in Germany-Austria. At least two or three were born in Oregon before they moved to the home place in Frances, Washington. Their parent's are buried their in a little Catholic cemetery. At one time the town had about a thousand residents.

I always thought that one day I would spend a week or two researching all their obituaries, wedding announcements, etc. Would you be in a position to help me find their obits? It would be wonderful to discover that you lived in the area.

Do you have access to a newspaper index? I would be willing to pay any fees. I hate to leave my wife. She would have a very hard time getting up if she fell. She had polio at 5 years old and now it's really taking a lot of starch out of her life.

Sorry, I just had to ask. My grandmother was Theresa [Guggenbickler] Dick. Her husband was a Northwest Mounted Policeman that was with the first group to enter the Klondike during the gold rush. One winter, he was ordered to chase after a murderer who led him 1500 miles north up the Klondike River by dog sled. They almost starved to death on the way back to his station.

Thank you, Martin Burrell,
Please erease after reading.

Hi! Are you able to photograph graves in the Woodlawn Cemetery, Lovilia, Monroe County, Iowa? I see that you took the picture of the front gate and am hoping that you are close by.

I have at least two relatives in this cemetery and would love to have their gravestone pictures. I have two requests out there and they have the location of the graves as well.

However, if you are able to get to this cemetery, I would love to have any photos of family that is surrounding the two graves of Pearce/Pierce & Mary Jones.

Thank you! Linda

Ebert "Bert' Giberson
The nickname for Ebert is "Bert". The obit does
show that his full name is Eert Murphy Giberson
and the stone in the picture shows Ebert M.
Giberson thus they are one and the same.

Wendell Giberson obit.
Thank you for providing the obit. I have added it to the site and credited you as the provider. If he is a relative of yours, let me know and I'll gladly transfer him to you.

Query re: Quimby family
Hi Thomas, I see that you have created and linked memorials for the John Oliver & Cordelia Quimby family. Do you know much about their daughter Charlotte A? She is noted at Family.Search marrying a George Boyd Fjellman in California on 7 May 1946. It is unclear as to how many years they were married as George re-married 1954. I am working on the Fjellman family history for some memorials. Thanks so much, Helen
