If you would like me to transfer these memorials to you to manage let me know and I will gladly do that -- since they are your family.

Just let me know.

RE: Re: Eleanor Foster
Dear Ellen,
Many apologies for not getting back to you three months ago regarding the Fosters, who are related with the Burkharts (my family) a number of times. R & H Foster were Robert and Hannah Foster who came from Ohio (Robert) and Illinois (Hannah) and were in Oregon by 1860, in time for the census. However, a daughter, Emily, was b.1852 in Oregon, and a brother of Robert's, James E.Foster, d.1848 in Albany, so I am betting they arrived in 1848 with many of the earliest families, just one yr. after mine settled in Albany. All I know about Eleanor Graham Foster is what you know, at this point, that she was born in Pennsylvania in 1829. She was a sister of James Hearst Foster, whose 1st wife was Martha J.(Gray) Foster. After her death, he married my's sister, John Burkhart's daughter, Louesa Matilda (Burkhart) Thompson, who was a widow. They married in 1882, but James Hearst Foster died in 1888 and he was buried with Martha. Louesa went to Portland to live with her daughter, Hettie Templeton, who was married to a dentist, Dr. Charles Ritchey Templeton. She died in Jan.1907 and her remains were sent back to Albany so she could be buried by her husband, David M.Thompson in the Masonic Cemetery in Albany. Another child of Robert & Hannah (Froman) Foster, James Edwin Foster, married Plessa Caroline "Carrie" Burkhart, a great granddaughter of John Burkhart. They had 3 children. Isaac Rand Froman and his wife had a daughter named Lola Amelia who married Crill Davidson Burkhart, a grandson of John Burkhart, and were blessed with 3 children. So you see the Foster/Burkhart connection goes way back and I don't think I've mentioned all of them, just the main ones I can readily remember. I know I still have searching to do which involves searching for death certs., when time and health permit, but I'm still loving it. All of these people are related to me, some more than others, and we were lucky to find a photo album so I could include many pictures of my family members (although the only one that I have found of John Burkhart, my, looks so stern and severe! He was in his later years when it was taken, his hair had turned white, etc.). So, happy graving and thanks for the info. I keep hoping something else will pop up. You never know.
With all Sincerity, Kathie L.Webb Blair

Eleanor J.Gray Hearst
Dear Ellen,
I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you! I've been taking care of my sister who has, unfortunatelly, another surgery coming up pretty soon. Have also had my own health & financial issues to deal with. Anyway, I found Eleanor on Find A Grave under Eleanor J Gray & just sent David an email asking him to trn her to me, as I have a number of Foster connections w/the Burkhart family, my ancestors on my mother's side, along with the Davidsons. Eleanor was James Hearst Foster's 1st wife, just as you wrote to me from her headstone back last month. After Eleanor died, James remarried. His 2nd wife was the 2nd husband of Loueasa M. Burkhart Thompson, whose 1st husband, David M.Thompson, had died in 1879. (I hope that makes sense.) Their marriage lasted until James passed in 1888. Loueasa then went to live with her daughter in Portland, OR until her death in early 1907. Her remains were transported back to Albany and she was buried at the Masonic Cemetery next to her 1st husband, David Thompson, under the name Loueasa M. Thompson. I couldn't find her for quite a while as someone had noted in error she had died in 1907 at age 21, when she was actually age 71. I've gotten alot of help from so many people at Find A Grave, incl. you!, and have been able to find so many relatives that have been missing for so long. I just wanted to thank you for the information that has helped me to close another chapter in my family history.
With all sincerity, Kathie L.Webb Blair, Portland

RE: Julia Miller
Abraham Miller Jr is buried on his homestead, in Antelope Creek. Julia MAY also be there. There are six graves. Abraham's is marked as you noted with a metal foot marker only. Another grave is that of his son Philip who died a month after he did. We think one of the unmarked graves belongs to one of Abraham's brothers, Thomas M. Miller. One is Abraham's second wife, Elizabeth Crowley Dagley who was previously married to Joseph Turnage. Abraham and Elizabeth are the uppermost graves on the slope.

RE: Raymond Kirk
No worries, you did the right thing. I don't create memorials for "no-DOD" folks until they're 100 years old (sometimes they just don't get put on the stone) or unless I know of their actual DOD.

RE: Also confused
Sorry, What happen is that I knew the where buried around that area but could find them so I wrote an ask if they could look and find them since most of the cemeteries have no phone's so maryca went and found them and claimed the photo request. She let me know she found them and where and then I made memorials it was a few days before she was able to get the photos. I guess you should claim the photos then check the rest and if there is a problem ler the requester know, thanks for your trouble. Geri

RE: Julia Miller
Abraham's Uncle (Brother of George) was known as Abraham Miller, Sr. and the younger one was Jr. This was common when two people of the same name were in the same town. (Junior is a Germanic alliteration of "The Younger", and Senior means "elder" Like in "Senor" the Spanish term for Mister.)

The Miller Cemetery you visited, was it the one in Albany? (Millersburg)

Abraham, husband of Julia is buried on his homestead on Antelope Creek in Lane County (Near Chimney Rock), the Abraham in Miller Cemetery in Albany is Abraham Miller, Sr. George's Brother.

Yes, definitely interested. Annie was David's wife, I'm not sure about Vinitta but I'll sure try to find out. She may be a daughter. Thanks again!

Re: Eleanor Foster
Dear Family Finder,
I'd like to thank you very much for going out in early Winter to take the photo of Eleanor Foster's headstone. You're right. Parts have worn away and I also see no visible date of birth. I am interested in what can be seen, though, because this means she is someone totally different than I thought she was. I'd been harboring the impression she was someone's wife when she may most likely was instead someone's daughter. From what I can read, She was the daughter of R & I Foster. It then says "Born Columbia T?........ were you able to read any of the rest? Anything at all that you could discern would be greatly appreciated at this point. And again, thank you so much for the photo that has put an entirely different slant on things. Also, do you know what the note at the top of the headstone said? Thanks so much again.
With all sincerity, Kathie L.Webb Blair, Portland,OR.

Yes, Annie was David's wife. They were my husband's great-grandparents. I don't know anything about Vernitta but if you could post the photo I will certainly research to see if she was their daughter. Thanks again!
