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. Please, also, used the "edit" tab from each memorial that you wish to have transferred and include your contributor ID# in your request under "Suggest any other correction or addition."

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 much for the picture of his grave! I can't wait until the rest of the snow melts here so I can add some grave photos myself again. :D

Hi Merrily,

Velna Marie Gilfilen Bowen was my mother's sister. Please correct the spelling of her first name. It is Velna, not Velma.

Thank you for getting that picture put up. On his wife,Leila. You sound tenacious to walk all over the cemetery looking for a stone. I found a phone number and left a message asking if she is buried there. Her family had the record on Ancestry. So I will try again when the answer comes. But thank you. If the answer comes back 'yes' with no stone then the empty spot would work or nothing there.

Thank you again for your work.

Hi Merrily,
Thank you so much for posting Arthur Morse's gravestone. Means a lot to this family to find all of it's lost family, now I can join them all up again! Just wish my father could have been alive to his cousin's gravestone, but now they will have fun in heaven together again.
Thanks so much for your help!
