Bio and Links
I love the history of cemeteries. Where ever I go, I love to stop at them and look around, visit, and find the history. I would like to help this site out, and now that I am in WA I may look and see what I can do to help other families find and remember their loved ones.

Western State Cemetery
Welcome to the area.
Western state cemetery can be difficult at times. If you need help let me know. I am very familiar with the cemetery.
Also you might consider helping this organization.
We are working to restore the cemetery, and add headstones to the graves. It is a volunteer organization that relies on community support and donations to accomplish its goals.

Hi there
I saw you claimed a bunch of photos for Old Tacoma and saw you just moved into the area. Glad to have another local that loves doing this volunteer work.

I've been documenting the cemetery with a few others over the summer. I still have a bunch of photos to memorialize and/or post the photos to memorials as I took a slew of photos in several sections. Therefore I may contact you in the future should you nab a photo request and I happen to have the photo that I need to post up still. Unfortunately I don't get email notifications for Old Tacoma so I have to check manually. :/

I headed up a group of local gravers last year to tackle Mountain View. It's getting there, but still has sections that need photo documention. Same for Old Tacoma. If you would like to do a section yourself, feel free to email me at and I'll give you details.

How wonderful to see these photos only two days after being told by another that it would be practically impossible to gather them due to the size of the cemetery and the $25.00 charge by those in charge to locate a grave. I cannot tell you how much your efforts are appreciated. You are a wonderful asset to the findagrave community. Thanks again for going the "extra mile"

Hello Sharron, Thank you so much for the photographs of the grave sites of Ernestine and Margaret. I really appreciate this. Another contributor try to get photo's and the cemetery told her it would be $25.00 to look up the plots. I'm really surprise that you got them. Again, "Thank You". Have a great day!
PS If you have the plots, may I have the information to add to the memorials?
