I see in your biography that you say you are a descendant of one of his daughters. He is my grandfather and I know he had only two daughters; Ida Agnes, my mother and Bertha Gladys who had no children. there was one other daughter that was Olina's when she married him. She was Johanna and had a serious illness when she was about 12. She was blind until her death about the age of 20. Otherwise the only other child he had ws Odine Christopher. He also had no natural children but did have 4 stepchildren. If you want to know more, contact me at

RE: Charles Millering Angel Day
Hello Kathy, Thank you for the lovely sentiment on Chucks memorial page. It has been almost 6 years since I quit those hollow tubes! And about 4 years since the doctor cut that little bit of cancer out of my chest. I'm doing great. I still have to work 4 nights a week, it can sure take it's toll on the physical well being. It's Chucks birthday today not his Angel day but I'm sure Chuck doesn't mind.I saw his son on the bus awhile back and his daughter sent me some photos. I hope you are doing okay do you still have shadow cat? I have 2 beautiful grandsons which I can visit and buy toys for. Trevor is 2 1/2 & Tegan is 1 1/2. Take care and stay strong. Love from Jeannie.

I would be greatly honored for you to share with me your obviously amazing amount of research and attention to detail. Thank you for clarifying his information for me. My mom was pretty confused when I told her he was a mortician. She grew up in the Toppenish area and remembers stories of our family being farmers. My email is Thank you so much for caring enough to work through the night to find the answers. You ROCK!!

RE: Sunset View Cemetery
Hi Kathie, Thanks for your kind words. The headstones that were removed are now in SF Bay.

I came across the SF death index before 1905 and thought I'd add some names to the Sunset Cemetery. It hasn't been much, so far, but I will be doing a little at a time.

The dead do need to be remembered.

I'm of Russian descent and I have been following the various lines in Los Angeles and San Francisco. I found many death certs on Family Search and many are young children. Since they died between census years, their name is not mentioned anywhere. So that is one of my many quests is to link these children to family. Sadly, some of the certificates do not mention a parent; however, sometimes I can link the address to another child who died and the child is linked up. I can't find them all, but I've made a dent.

So sad that the dead are forgotten and covered over. Family members can't even pay their respects. I say shame on those companies who have no feelings or guilt.

That's my soapbox message.

Marysville, CA

RE: Elie Wiesel memorial

Dear Kathie,

Thank you for the kind words regarding our tribute for the incomparable Elie Wiesel; we were humbled in attempting to define his life within given parameters. As the descendants of immigrant Holocaust survivors, we believe this world mourns the loss of a profound voice whose legacy is our conscience.

Best regards and "shalom aleichem".

RE: Burkhart - Hale Connection
Hi again Kathie. I noticed you placed some flowers and messages on David J Lewis who died in Montana. The bio suggested he may have had more children. I can confirm he did as I am one of the descendants of an unlisted child. My great grandmother Ada Ann Lewis-Hannon-Sanders was the daughter of David Lewis and Mary Ann Layton-Lewis. Ada was a twin to Ida May Lewis. If you are interested in more info I might be able to help. I am currently working on biographical info of those buried at the Simison/Hale Cemetery in Linn Co. and Ada Ann is buried there with her first husband Lawrence Elijah Hannon.

RE: Virginia Burkhart
I was happy to do it. I enjoy sharing local history with others, especially Linn County history. I am descended from William Hale Sr & Sarah Borders-Hale through their daughter Sarah Ann. I know the Hales and Burkharts are connected by marriage so it kind of felt as though I was helping a distant relative.

RE: Clarissa Linville
THANKS Kathie --- You are right! It would be Benton County. I shall change that in my records right away.

I volunteer at the POLK COUNTY MUSEUM in Rickreall and have been in contact with Alice Eicholz who is the LINVILLE genealogist and historian, so have been finding a lot of data for her. She is interested in ALL Linvilles and hopefully she will get in touch with you soon.

Thanks again ... Addie Rickey

Thank You

Hi Kathie,

Thank you for your Memorial Day message for my friend, Douglas Daane, who was killed in Vietnam.

You and I have many things in common -- my father also died on July 9th, although it was in 1980, I was in a severe car accident (at age 7 and broke my neck), suffer from migraines, and also had my DNA tested and we are pretty much the same!

Sincerely, Lori
