Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a volunteer for several local organizations, and I have found that I get a great deal of pleasure in helping others.

I do put my heart into every picture I take, just like my new friend Rev Kev says. And if there's anything I can help you with here in southern Oregon, please ask; I'm happy to do what I can.

Here's the coolest poem I just found:

Dear Ancestor,
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date have worn
carved in that weathered marble stone.

It reaches out to all who care;
Though now too late to mourn.
You did not know that I'd exist;
You died…then I was born.

My daughter and I are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone;
Our hearts contract, and beat a pulse
Entirely NOT our own.

Dear Ancestor,
The place you filled some hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder how you lived and loved;
I wonder if you knew;
That someday I would find this place
And come to visit you.

Hello Kathryn,

I have honored your request to maintain your 2nd GGrandmother's memorial page. I appologize for the long delay. Your email somehow made its way into a seldom used file.

Rachel Parkes Musick
Hello I saw a flower you had left stating that Rachel Musick was your great grandmother. I was hoping you could answer a few questions. Do you know if she has a headstone ? And do you also happen to have any info on her siblings and her half siblings ? Thank you :)

DISTANT cousin
Hi there! I saw the picture you posted of the memorial for William Burgess (thank you), and saw that you listed him as your 8th Great Grandfather... well, we are distantly related then because he is my 10th Great Grandfather :)

Merry Christmas,

Rachel C.

Walter Devereux
Hi Kathryn, you had asked me to correct the date of birth from 1539 to 16 Sept 1541. If you go to the church web site where he's buried, you'll see that my year is correct.,&name=SAINT%20PETER%27S%20CHURCH,%20CARMARTHEN,%20WALES%20-%20ITS%20HISTORY&city=CARMARTHEN

"Also buried in the chancel is Walter Devereux, First Earl of Essex (1539 - 1576), father of one of Queen Elizabeth I's courtiers."

Also from

At this time, I'll keep his birth year as is but thank you for your time.

RE: Thank you SO MUCH!!!
I'm happy to report to you that the Oak Grove Cemetery looks really good. There is a man named Leonard Campbell , who is taking care of the cemetery. He not only mows but has replaced a lot of the very old stones with new ones. at his own expence. He doesn't remove the old stones just put a new one next to it. Unheard of, isn't it? There is also recent burials. The lane from Seals Rd. to the cemetery looks good also. The Baptist Church no longer stands. I think it is safe to say, that the cemetery will be looking good for a long time. I have added two photo's for the Cemetery page, waiting approval from Find-A-Grave. Also more photo's of stones if you need them.
