Bio and Links
I live in Whatcom Co, Washington, and have been actively doing genealogy since 1978. I became a FAG member shortly finding my 5th great-grandfather's gravestone photo and knew I had to create memorial pages and post the numerous photos and records that I had collected. My surnames of interest include Gilbert, Glover, Gowdy, Brown, Packard, Wakely and Jennings.

Additions and corrections to FAG Memorials: I will add additional information and make corrections to the memorials I have created. Please use the "edit" tab that can be accessed from each memorial page and choose the correct option.

Transfer requests: Please request the transfer of a Memorial according to the guidelines of FAG. I will not transfer Memorials for those that I am directly related to.

Obituaries: I will add obituaries to memorials only if the death of the individual occurred over 20 years ago. I do not post newspaper obits without a proper citation which includes both the date and the name of the newspaper.

Photos: You have my permission to use any photo that I have taken and posted to a Memorial. Please remember to give my name and where you found the photo. Also note that I believe it is more important to capture the data on the headstone and provide the best possible photo. Please contact me should you desire a scenic photo of the area where the headstone is located.

Thank you so very much for all the effort's of you and your husband in fulfilling my request. People who do not volunteer to search for grave sight's do not realize how hard it can be sometimes, I do. The picture is really "GREAT". It is so greatly appreciated, more than you know. Thanks again, Vera

RE: Arfsten photos
Your vey welcome.
I think it's great that I found the headstone for the babies.
Good luck with your research. I'm curious to know how it turns out.

Robert Arfsten
Along with the photos for Robert I have also added pictures for his wife, Johanna.
You will see that there is a small white headstone with them. It is inscribed "Our Darling Babies" with the Arfsten family name also inscribe. There were no names or dates on the headstone. What a neat little "mystery".
Thank you for the request. This was my first trip to Riverside Cemetery. I really enjoyed the trip.
