Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Newport, WA , but I enjoy traveling to the forgotten little cemeteries in eastern Washington state and northern Idaho to take headstone photos and enter names that were not previously entered.

If you have a legitimate reason to request the transfer and management of any of my entries, please just ask. I am more than happy to transfer ownership to you. However, if you feel a desire to complain that I did not enter all the dates or relationship links (of someone who is not even a relative of yours!) to your satisfaction, then please resist that temptation. I have a very full and busy life and it is all that I can do to get the headstones photographed and entered. I feel that it is most important to get the names "out there" and to offer photos of the headstones, which almost always shows that information, anyhow.

I am still looking for a lost half sister who is also the daughter of William Edward Givens, Jr. A few years ago I learned that she was researching her genealogy, too, claiming to be his secret daughter (like me!). If that is you, or if you know her, please email me.

You're very welcome! Just so you know, there are no other Humborgs at Bellevue.

Wow - this is a surprise. Thank you for the transfer. I very rarely ask for transfers, because I already have all my very close family placed in a memorial of my making. So, thank you very much. I will update Carl. Maybe, eventually, someone will know where his wife is - I'll just keep searching. Thank you...

OMG poor fella no nothing for him! Just a place in ground not even a marker, how did you ever find it?
I have to try to go there and leave something as I think I am related. I believe he passed thru here and he died is what happened. This is so sad.
Thanks for photo thou, happy trails.......from one Npt gal to another.

Another Civil War Veteran Buried Newport Cemetery
We spoke a few years ago in regards to Civil War Veterans buried in Newport Cemetary, Newport, WA.

In going over some Spokane Newspapers, it has been discovered that one Civil War Veteran who lived in Newport also joined the 50th Celebration in Gettysburg.

Please contact me as I believe he should be added to the Civil War Veterans buried in Newport Cemetery and the list of remembrances on Memorial Day.

Thank you,

RE: PJ Nixdorff photo, plus...
I just looked up Walter and he came from Virginia, only had a sister, and he and Aunt Amy definitely had no children. Just a coincidence, I guess.

Yes, thank you, I'd like to manage my great-grandfather's memorial. I appreciate it.
