Bio and Links
I'm a 6th generation Oregonian. Currently live near Houston. Family History researcher since I was 13. My grandpa told us we were related to Queen Victoria and that hooked me in. However, that was a good family story only!
Social History is a passion of mine. Tromping through cemeteries, digging in the dirt for arrowheads, old photos, etc. I'm just hooked!

Hi Joyce,

I saw where you had posted flowers on my great-grandmother Calla Jane Maxwell Furnish memorial that we share the same great-grandparents. Ludlow Maxwell and Delilah Marshall are my great-great-grandparents. Who are you related to in this family line? I would love to learn more about them.

Your distant cousin from Texas, Dixie

RE: Wilson Cemetery
Hello Joyce,

Very happy to meet you.

Would love more info so I can add you to my tree, if that is ok with you.

Your question:
Where did you get that picture of the fieldstone/headstones?

I am not 100% sure what memorial you are asking about, maybe you could post the Memorial number.

I have a cousin .. well my Husbands cousin who has helped me with the Wilson name. With information provided by him I made memorials and was able to add to existing pages.

This webpage:
http://www.walthertree.com/AnnRuddellWilson.html

Has information... I can't remember where I got the Wilson Memorial. And a lot of the pics are provided by of course other wonderful Find A Grave members.

Look forward to sharing with you.

cousin Robin.

RE: add on
Joyce, I do not own the Lona Bernice Hathaway Gillett memorial so cannot link it to her mother. Go to that memorial and select edit on the top of the page and request the link to the owner of the memorial. Wish I could help more.
Thanks,
Kelly

RE: Thanks
I may have close ups already... I do closer ones for myself to help read the stones when I get home. If not, ill be going back and get them for you. If you have a email listed on ur profile I'll email you the pictures. It's just the Baldwin's you where looking for out of the Palmer Center Cemetery correct? All I have to take pictures with unfortunately is a cell phone that doesn't take great pictures...but it works! :)

Moses Baldwin
I am soo sorry! I just realized tonight I posted pictures for the wrong Moses Baldwin. Apparently there are 2 of them in this cemetery! I didn't know. I am removing the wrong one and replacing it with the right Moses headstone. I also found Rebecca with him. Was Moses a reverend? I found 4 children of Rev.Moses and Becca I will be posting too. I don't have all of them my camera died and the childrens stones are in a very difficult location to take pictures of... right on a wooded tree line. But those will be going up soon. The 4 children are also located in a different area from their parents too. Not very far away though...

RE: thanks
I just noticed you have a few requests for the Palmer center cemetery...I still have more photos to upload not sure who I have. Next time I go out there I'm going to have my list with me of who to look for. I'm hoping to get back there this week. but we will see where life takes me! lol. I will also try the Monson location for you too.

RE: Thanks
No problem!! I just found out I live like 5 minutes away! Lived here over 5 years and didn't even know the cemetery was there! It's well hidden. Unfortunatly there are quite a few stones that are damaged/broken in this cemetery. There are a few that have been repaired and there is a section that received newer plagues so you know who's grave is there, but even with those too, there are are lot missing from that part too...I was going to talk to the cemetery department about it when I contact them. So we will see what can be done. That is the first/oldest cemetery in town. If I notice in the years to come he gets a new headstone I will post it if I'm able.

RE: Thanks
Joyce,

You asked about dates on a grave marker in Aspen Grove. I took a number of photos in the past few days, but I presume you're referring to the Gearhart marker.

The marker is in deteriorating condition. A gravestone survey done in the late 1970's recorded:

Gearhart, Fannie H., wif of S.W., no dates
Amanda, dau of S.W. & F.M., no dates

I presume the S.W. & F.M. should be F.H.

Israel E. Sayre
Yes, you are confusing Israel (the son of Mercer) with Mercer's brother Israel (son of Samuel [and Israel's uncle] 1791-1827) who married Hannah Barnhart. Irena was indeed about 13 years or so older than her husband. Please let me know if I can provide any further clarification.
