Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am 47 years old and found findagrave while researching my ancestry. Now I am enjoying volunteering and taking photos of the ancestors of others.
I live near the NE Oregon and SE Washington border, so I have access to gravesites in both states. My dog, Tasha, goes with me to nearly every cemetery.
On weekends, my mother and I partner up, covering some of the cemeteries in half the time for the places that don't have a list.
If anyone can take photos of my ancestors, many of them are buried in or near Clayworks, Webster Co. Iowa, as my great great grandfather and his brother were the founders of Johnston Clayworks and never left the area.

Thank you for the info !!!!
I would have never noticed that the two graves are close to each other. Plot #450 joins #484 but I hadn't noticed. Thank you
We gladly make transfers to family.

James' headstone
Peggy - Thank you so much for the great photo of James' headstone! Sorry it was so difficult to find. James was one of the last of my mom's relatives that I needed to locate.

Yes, it is an unusual last name to say the least. But they were a very historical family for they were a part of the famous Meek cut-off of 1845. A terrible mix up for they were told by Mr. Meek that he knew of a shorter route to get to The Dalles and indeed he and the wagon train got lost. A lot of people died and in fact Cathrine Bonnett Butts died on the way down to the Deshutes river. There is a wonderful tribute to her outside of the Dalles area. Here are the names I am looking for? John Butts, Cathrine's husband, Annis, Jacob, Louis or Lewis, Mary, Melva and Sarah Butts, but the girls of course got married and I have their names also. I bet there was a lot on that family for they owned property there in Baker for a long time. I wish I could go there, but it is so far away, I live on the Oregon coast.

Eliza was once a Butts and she is buried in Baker City Cemetery. So, I assume there are more Butts buried there. So, maybe in the spring you could go there if you wish. Thanks
