Bio and Links
Family research brought me to Find-a-Grave in the fall of 2011. Each time I found the gravestones of family members on the website I realized what a gift it was to me from complete strangers. My second cousin, Jean, alerted me to Find-a-Grave and my paternal relatives gravestones, Trisha posted the gravestone of my paternal grandmother and Dean posted my maternal grandparents and great grandparents and other relatives. A library volunteer in Massillon, Ohio sent me gravemarkers of more paternal relatives I have added to Find-a-Grave. A lot of help from people who are total strangers. I have received such wonderful help that it's past time I "Paid it Forward". I divide my time between Vancouver, Washington and Scottsdale, Arizona.

Hi Elizabeth,
I checked the 1934 DAR census and they are not listed - anywhere - within cemetery section or addendum. I know many spouses create a grave marker after their spouse dies, and if that was the case here, it would be after the DAR. I also checked a few of my other sources and found nothing, except Samuel's obit, which doesn't list burial location. There was a census of Cypress Hill in 2006 and within the last year or so, it has been pretty much completely photographed, so if they are there, there is no actual grave marker. Mountain cemetery has been photographed, but I don't believe it was a thorough job or complete. In looking at the boulder location I would say there is a good chance they are in that spot. Is it possible they have an inscription plate and it has lichens and moss grown over it and so hasn't been found? That's all the help I can give. Good luck.

RE: Reuben MacDonald Woodworth
I own the original Sonoma County Cemetery Book but I loaned it to Colletta, you can find her name in my friends, click on it and write to her and have her look to see if the parents are buried in Mountain or any other cemetery for that matter. I will do some hunting from this end. Sorry I can't be of more help but I no longer live in CA or even near there. Eileen

I am a descendent of the Porters of Shedd, OR, and am interested in others of the family It seems to be slowly disappearing, like the former farm and ranch properties of the family. I appreciate any response.

RE: Bertie Gilbert
I thought at first that you might be referring to Gilbert C. Thomas. I always thought J.B. and Lura had just five children, but this weekend my mother told me that there was indeed a sixth child who died very young, who fitted between Clyde and Claude, who I knew nothing about until just yesterday. The little boy's name was Claire Burton Gilbert. He was born in 1877 or 1878 in Peoria, Linn County, Oregon and died in 1879 or 1882. we don't have any definite dates for him. My mom says that Claudia Gilbert Marshall (memorial # 80671643) had a photo of the child in a photo album at one time, but by the time Claudia passed away and my mother inherited the album, the photo was missing from the album.

Harris Watts was Irena Diantha (Watts) Gilbert's twin. He died of an illness in his twenties while in college. I have a poor quality photo of Irena and Harris posted at Irena's memorial. I think my mom may have a better photo of him. I would have already created a memorial for Harris, but I don't feel that I have his information solid enough yet to build a decent memorial. If you wish to take a photo of his stone, I can set up a partial memorial with the info I have, but the memorial will probably need some tweaking later on. Neither my mom nor I know who Zeruah Opp is. Might be related or might not.

Charlotte White
You're very welcome. Unfortunately, both Charlotte and her husband James' grave sites are unknown. It is believed they are buried in Evergreen Cemetery, but no records of their burials exist.

RE: Diantha Holmes
I searched for Diantha Holmes in Vermont Vital Records. Unfortunately many of the records in Swanton/St. Albans were lost during the early 1800's to mid 1800's. What was her father's name?, are you sure he maiden name was Holmes? Who did she marry. Col. Benj. Holmes and his brother Stephen Holmes family(s) lived in that area and so she may be a granddaughter.

Anna Kerstetter
I went to Newman Cemetery this morning and snapped a photo of Anna Kerstetter's marker. Then when I went to fulfill your photo request I saw that there is already a photo on her memorial. Do you want another one posted? My photo is not as good as the one you already have.
