Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born & live in Central Washington State. I had thought that my family was small but that has not been the case. Genealogy has taken me places that I could never have imagined. My family line includes Kobernik, Daily/Dailey, Bishop, Krider/Crider, Monninger, Foutz, Southward/Southwood, Swearingen, Hainline/Hanlein, Miller/Mueller, Guy, Waggoner, Ralls, Hart, Drews/Drefs & Griep. My Kobernik line comes from Germany (now Poland) and the others mostly from Fulton Co, IL; PA; MD; & VA.
I enjoy working on my family but also helping others to locate their ancestors. In 2012 I took photos of most of the graves at Terrace Heights Memorial Park, Yakima, WA. (A few of the temps cannot be read).
Please let me know if anything needs to be corrected, transferred (if not my family) or removed. You have permission to use any grave stone that I have posted. Happy Genealogy Hunting!
P S - If you are trying to find someone that is at Terrace Heights Memorial Park in Yakima you can now go to
and type in the name, etc. One thing I noticed, however, that a number of them have the same month and day on the birth and death day. It is probably either the birth or death date but not both. The years are probably correct.

Richard Hayes photo--thank you!
Hello Joan,
Thank you so much for the photo of Richard (and George) Hayes' markers.
Your photo confirmed that I was looking for the correct Richard Hayes.

It certainly looks like George and Richard were brothers--I have to confirm that.

I was out today taking photos for people also. I had just uploaded all of them when your photos came in!
Thanks again,
Dan Phelan

Thank you
Thank you for the photos of the Alfred and Alma Murphy headstones. It helps a lot to be able to verify the text info with the info on the stones themselves. Thanks again!
