Bio and Links
Bio Photo A recent email led me back to this site & I decided to start adding all the photos I've taken throughout the years of my graveyard visits - mostly family lines. I hope those people visiting this site have luck finding gravestones of their ancestors. I have been researching my lines for about 25 years and of late have been assisting others. What a time-consuming - but exhilerating hobby.

I'm researching OSBURN, BRADFORD, BOGUE, CROOK and related families as well as PIERCE, O'DANIEL, DECKER, AXTELL, and their relations.

I am a volunteer photo taker for this area of Northern California and will gladly correct errors and transfer management of any photos I may take of your family.

The only thing I ask is that if you use my photographs, please credit my name. Thank you.

Happy searches to all! jop

RE: Henry Trask
Hello, Thank you for adding the article to Henry's memorial. I am not related. When I happen upon an old article/obit I hope that one day it may be of help to a family researcher. v/r Cara

Jennie Tramp
Doing some reasearch I eventually found Jennie Tramp was the wife of Milo C. Wilson. I also found this:

On September 11, 1909, Charles L. Tramp married, secondly, Mrs. Jennie (Howard) Wilson, widow of Milo C. Wilson, of Nebraska, who was born in Columbia County, Wisconsin, in 1850, the daughter of William and Adeline (Bennett) Howard, natives of Kentucky and Indiana, respectively. William Howard died in Wisconsin and his widow thereafter lived with a daughter in Nebraska, where her last days were spent.

History of Audubon County Iowa pg 535

Charles L Tramp died in 1918 and is buried in Maple Grove Cemetery in Audubon County.

Last interesting tidbit I found: despite being in the process of moving to Seattle to open a grocery store Jennie apparently stayed in Omaha and formed a business with a Miss Dunham (never got the first name) called Dunham & Wilson Millinery and had an office in the Paxton Hotel. Millinery is the trade of making womens hats.

Death of Milo C. Wilson

A dispatch received yesterday morning conveyed the sad intelligence of the death of
Milo C. Wilson, who was killed in a railroad collision at Shoshone, Idaho. Mr. Wilson was removing with his family to Seattle and was en route for that city when he met his death. His wife left last Tuesday with the family of William H. Bruner, and Mr. Wilson went by freight to look after his horse and household goods.

The deceased was for some time clerk in the freight claim department of the Union Pacific in this city and was also very prominent in Masonic circles. He was for two terms master of Capitol lodge, A.F. & A.M., and was secretary of the Cerneau bodies.

He was well known here, and the news of his death will come as a sad suprise to his many friends and Masonic brethren in this city.

Omaha Bee July 7 1890

After typing all that out I figured out how to cut and paste:

Samuel Avery
Thank you so much for the photo of Samuel Avery's grave. Now the memorial really does have a grave photo . . . just like the little icon has been saying it does. :)

Anytime you are in the cemetery, if you get a chance to add photos of graves to memorials that have the icon next to them, but just the image of that map of the cemetery, would you be so kind to add a grave photo?

Have a great week, Samantha

Kilgore Cemetery
Thank you for the closer image of Julia Erickson's name on the list of interments.

Would you please remove it from the "grave" category and put it in any of the other choices when attaching it? I generally put other images in "other".

When an image is attached to a memorial in the "grave" category it puts the little icon of a headstone next to their name in the list of interments on Find A Grave. Then when someone with a camera is going to the cemetery and they glance at the list of interments they think Kilgore is 90% photographed, when in fact, it's not even half photographed.

I just noticed the error, so I put in some photo requests to bring attention to that problem. I am not focused on one particular grave in this cemetery, I would just like to see a photo of the grave if there is an image in the "photo of the grave" category on Find A Grave. I have considered putting in photo requests for the couple hundred that are misrepresented, but I got bored and went to bed.

I heard about all the vandalism in that cemetery. If you can find Sharon's grave, would you take a photo of whatever is left on it and put that on her memorial please? Maybe families of the interred don't know new headstones are needed. A picture is worth a thousand words right?

Thank you for your help. Samantha :)
