Bio and Links
Bio Photo I so enjoy family history work. What first got me hooked was a cemetery in Louisiana. That cemetery was a gold mine of information! Since then I find myself looking for the cemeteries first thing in hopes of finding tidbits of information that aren't always available anywhere else.

Hopefully we can all help each other in our endeavors to find our family members! I wish you much success in your search for your ancestors.

By the way, I feel family members should have the first choice in maintaining memorials for their own family. I'm glad there are guidelines set up by F.A.G. but think it's a nice offering to give it back to the family. Please just let me know how you are related and I will gladly transfer them to you.

A side note...if you are interested in a transfer or adding information, please use the edit key on the memorial and not the message board. Thanks!

Hi Diane

I was wandering if you would give me the management of Cleo and Glen Calkina?

I was attempting to send you the obituaries for both and my computer acted up and I lost the page.

Thank you

The story of one little leaf

I know I thanked you already for the transfer of Bertha Seiffert's find a grave memorial# 120767983, but today I left work early to go to the cemetery office get the location of the headstone, clean it and photograph it.

I get to the cemetery office, the gal comes out of a back room asked me what I want. I tell her I need the location of a grave, she tells me, she is with clients and it will be a little bit. I ask how long is a little bit, she replies about 4 or 5 hours. I tell her oh man, thank you anyway, but I am not going to hang around Everett that long to get the location of one grave.

I get back into my vehicle about to leave and go home when I remembered that I saved a copy of the her headstone picture you took. As I am looking at it I see a there is half a leaf at the very top of the picture. I realize that it is a Rhododendron, so thinking to myself how many of them can there be in the cemetery and the headstone has to be fairly close to the Rhododendron plant. So I canvas the cemetery and start going from each area that has a Rhododendron, about to give up and leave I find a small tiny triangle section of the cemetery near the office. Where do you ask about 30 feet from where I originally parked when I first got to the cemetery, low and behold, this is where Bertha's headstone is.

I know you didn't deliberately put that leaf into the photo you shot, but if it weren't for that little leaf I would have had to make another trip out to the cemetery. All in all it took me about 40 minutes from start to finish at the cemetery to find that headstone with no cemetery section plot information just your picture and that isn't a small cemetery, there is what 17,000 plus graves there.

Thank you again

RE: Bertha Sieffert
Let's do the second part of what you said. I will transfer it back to you. Can you add the headstone picture to the memorial first.

Thank you again,

Otis William Marckmann
Find A Grave Memorial# 131608593

I found Otis's WWI Draft Card, which states that he was born in Hartland, Washington. Find A Grave does not have a listing for that city in any county of Washington State. In a Google search the only thing I can find is they have no information on this town and it's located in Klickitat County. Probably a small town suburb that got merged into another town.

Also you stated on the his memorial that he is buried next to a Florence Marckmann. According to the Washington State Digital Archives, Otis William Marckmann married Florence Lauraetta Patton in Seattle, Washington on 28 Jan 1917.
