Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love family Geneology and have created an extensive family tree using My family lines are in the surnames: Dutton, Slade, Dudley, Daccus (all from England), La Motte, Byrne (Canada), Johnson (Norway), Schaaf (Germany), Pfister, Oenning, Whetstone, Kidder and others.

If you need assistance searching your family geneology, please contact me. I have many resources and have had great success tracing back my family.

Also, I live in Bend, Oregon and if there are any connections to your family and need pictures of local burials/cemeteries, please feel free to contact me. I'd be happy to locate for you.

RE: Byrne
I've transferred these two memorials to you. Do you want the other BYRNE memorials located near Georgina? She's in Section 10 (with two others, perhaps her children), and James is in Section 11. I believe these are located near each other in the cemetery.

RE: Minnie Archer Wall
Thank you very much for Buck's contact info. I'll drop him a note. Congrats on the new addition to the family! My wife and I of 40 years never had children so we aren't quiet that busy. We are just waiting for Fall weather to come to Phoenix so we can get on with more outdoor projects.
Thanks again Leslie, that was my mom's name too.

RE: Minnie Archer Wall
Hi Leslie,
Yes, I "spoke" to Buck often by e-mail. I sort of lost contact with him after getting no replies at his address. Last I heard he was still in Missouri. I had wanted to know about Archer family reunions but found out they had been discontinued.

Minnie Archer Wall
Hi Miss Leslie,
My name is Tom Boyte, I'm the grandson of Minnie Francis Archer Wall and J.C. Wall. I believe she was the sister of Earl Archer. I always remember hearing of Uncle Earl and Aunt Lola and did visit them a few times.My grandmother was always known to all of us kids as Big Momma. I recently went to Beulah cemetery, the first time since the 1960's and the only stone I could find in the portion of the cemetery where I remember her being buried was marked "Big Momma". Do you happen to know for sure if that's her? I don't want to adopt someone else's grandma with their permission!

Highland Park Cemetery request
Lee's steps for Highland Park Photo requests:
1. You find out where they are buried—this is very easily done by going to You may find other helpful info there about your ancestor, as well.
2. Add this burial information to their memorial so it shows up on the photo request list.
3. Write, call or e-mail the cemetery office to confirm that a marker actually exists—about 60% of requests for this cemetery will have no marker.
4. Send me a message letting me know that this stone is now ready to be found and I will look for it, weather permitting. If you discover that there is no marker, please go to the request, choose "report problem" and from the drop down, "cemetery office confirms that no marker exists for this burial"

Edward Lamotte

There was no individual stone for Edward. In the records I noted that the dates are wrong in find-a grave and have submitted an edit. The records I have indicate that Edward Walter Lamotte died December 9, 1907 at the age of 2 months and 16 days. He ws the son of Frank and Eva Lamotte and the grandson of Louis Lamotte.

Highland Park photo request
Hillary S informs me that you can actually look up the Highland Park burial records at
I'm still asking people to call the cemetery office to confirm that there is actually a stone there, however. More than 60% of the requests I've checked out have not had stones, they will only look up a limited number for me at a time and the cemetery is enormous (over 130,000 burials) with a numbering system that at times defies logic.

photo request
I was at Highland Park Cemetery fulfilling photo requests today. It is a huge cemetery and there is no way anyone could find a tombstone without the Section and Lot or Tier number. I will, as I am able, look for the stones that have this information. There are 121 photo requests for this cemetery so I cannot request lookups for all of them. This is the link:
Please also ask them to check if there is actually a stone there
