Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy began 65 years ago when I followed my mother's and grandmother's conversations as they traced relationships of their friends and family.

As a Find A Grave photo volunteer for Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery, I sometimes stumble - literally - over a neglected or forgotten grave marker. I add information or create memorials for the lives I discover in this way.

I've lived in Portland since 1985. Do not presume to lecture me on the city of today or yesterday, the history or current status of Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery.

If you have rules and procedures and requirements for memorials and photos, don't expect me to follow them. As far as cleaning headstones? Don't be silly. I clean off the bird ****, wipe the dust, pull the weeds, rinse the mud. What good is a photo where the name can't be seen or the dates visible?

RE: Simone Carolyn Shel Upshaw #118436648
Hi Linda,

Thank you for clearing up where she is buried. What I meant by getting it corrected was just her burial location updated. A merge is done by Find A Grave when a person has two or more memorials..these are known as duplicates or may have a cemetery listed while one might be listed as burial location unknown. Thank you for your time and taking the photos of Simone's resting place.

Hi Linda, Do you remember where the grave photo was taken? Looks like a merge and the burial location left out. I would like to get it corrected. Thank you.

Please, consider removing a duplicate image that was installed on this memorial. The cemetery would like to install other material ... about 3-4 pages of other materials that they have been given... I gave it to them.

Thank you, Martin

RE: Norma Campbell Mahoney
It's my understanding she was cremated and there will be a memorial service for her in St. Ed sometime this spring. I'm assuming her ashes will be buried beside Ray at that time. I'll let you know when I know for sure.
