Bio and Links
Addie Rickey has an abiding interest in family history and cemetery preservation, especially for Marion and Polk Counties in Oregon.
In tracing my maiden name SMITHSON, I was having trouble making the connections to England, so began a newsletter called SMITHSON FAMILY EXCHANGE in 1988. In the process of gathering information, I have amassed a large amount of data on the surname and connecting data to other families. Also had a mailing list of over 500 addresses. Mark Smithson of Florida has taken over the Newsletter and now sends it to those who have signed in to receive the electronic version. Check the website for how to subscribe and additional data on SMITHSON death certificates, photos, tombstones, etc. Let us know if you have a connection to a SMITHSON.

Virginia Mason obit
Hi Addie,

I've noticed that many, many Find A Grave volunteers copy obits without publisher and/or family permission. It's strictly against Find A Grave policy.

I've been busy trying to get Find A Grave to stop those volunteers. I have nothing against posting obits; but I would need written permission from whoever wrote the obit. Otherwise I'd be in violation of copyright laws.

Please send me the permission as soon as you get it.

RE: Luther Akers Smithson
I think what you are interrupting as Luthy, is actually the letter r, and then the loop of what you think is the letter y, is actually the top of the initial B for Tonnie.
