Bio and Links
I've always been fascinated with grave sites, visited cemeteries, made rubbings, took photos, etc. and must say that find-a-grave is an ideal site.

I've worked on family history projects for over 35 years and will for as long as I can. I'm more than happy to share family history with anyone interested.

The primary names I research are STROOPE, KEA, Pitts, Howton, Trammel, Hopper, Hale, Thetford, CARPER, BARTON, Lyon, Phipps, Griffith, Ellison, Shumate and many allied lines.

When I document a grave site, I try to include some information on the parents, siblings, marriage, etc. hoping this will help someone idendify their relative. In some cases, when recording my line, or lines, I've created memorials for as much of the cemetery as I've had access to.

I'll be glad to transfer your family member to you. Always remember the FAG # for the memorial page and, of course, your FAG #. PLEASE do not send me a big list of names with no numbers included... thanks

If I have grave site information in error, please contact me so that corrections can be made.

Recent projects include:

--Gig Harbor and Haven of Rest Cemeteries, Gig Harbor, Pierce County, Washington

--JCC Smith Cemetery in Texas

--Knight of Pythias and Sunset Lane Memorial Park, Port Orchard, Kitsap County, Washington

--Lovington and Resthaven Cemeteries, Lovington, Lea County, New Mexico

--Mountain View Memorial Park, Lakewood, Pierce County, Washington

--Mount Calvary Cemetery (Santa Barbara Cemetery) , Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, New Mexico

--Calvary, Old Pioneer and Tacoma Cemeteries, Tacoma, Pierce County, Washington

--Riverside Cemetery in Vassar, Tuscola County, Michigan

Dear Kathy,

Thanks so very much for transferring John and Hilda to our account.

The Strauman family is an important part of my Wife's ancestry.

Best Regards,

Jonathan Howton question response
Hi Kathy! About Jonathan Howton's middle name being Curtis is speculation. I came a cross a person's family tree listing his middle name as Curtis but it seems highly unlikely. During that time in history middle names were not common so I do not believe his middle name was Curtis. I didn't want to rule it out and seems to be causing quite the confusion. I have omitted the Curtis out of Jonathan's name on Find a Grave website memorial. I will need to remove that name from all the work I have done online. I cannot remember who's family tree it was but I wish I knew for sure. I am terribly sorry for any confusion. Thank you so much for you're question.

RE: Enouse Francis McDonald - # 74932871
Hi Kathy, thanks for your quick response. If you don't mind, I would like to request a transfer for this family member. I'll dig around more to see if I can verify parentage (Angus Mark vs. Michael); I won't make any changes until I'm certain. Happy Holidays! Linda
