Bio and Links
Bio Photo We gladly transfer memorials to family and friends and are happy to share photos with family members for personal, non-commercial use.

Please let us know of any corrections, additional information or transfer requests by using the options under the [Edit] tab located in the top right corner of each memorial page.

Most edits can be done via their own link.
Per the FAQs, please use the sixth option for transfer requests.

Please read the FAQs and the Terms of Service to find out what can and cannot be added to this site. We will not add anything to a memorial that might violate these terms or link to Burial Unknown memorials.

Three members asked if we would manage the memorials they created in the Odd Fellows Cemetery and Masonic Memorial Park in Tumwater, WA., and Forest Memorial in Olympia, WA. That accounts for the difference in our added and managed numbers.

We are not related to anyone in these three cemeteries-just maintaining the memorials.

RE: Edward Burdette Buhrmester
Holy cow your a Renfro! I keep seeing this name come up in family tree's. Is there anyway to get in touch with Bessie? The info I have is scanned copies of various military documents that would have to be sent as an attachment over email. There's letters from his mom, wife, different burial forms, personal effects that he had when he was killed, as well as his Silver Star citation. Edwards mother was my grandmothers aunt! My grandma's maiden name was Lyons.

Edward Burdette Buhrmester

I see that you added a photo to Edward Burdette Buhrmester's page and I was just wondering where you got it? I recently found out that he is a relative of mine being my grandma's cousin. This makes him my 1st cousin twice removed. Anyway I hired someone to find information regarding his military service that is not available online and I found ALOT of information. Are you related to Edward? I'd be glad to share some of the stuff I have.

Regard, Alex Selig
P.S. thank you so much for doing what you guys do otherwise he may have been forgotten.

Amanda and Vern Smith
Dear Elaine and Bill,

I am doing some searching in my family tree and have an Everett LaVern Smith 1886-1976, #104019520 he had a wife named as Hilma Amanda Ogren, not linked to his memorial, and I found your memorial #104019534 for Amanda Smith with a Vern on the same headstone, the year of birth for Vern matches (same cemetery too)
Can you look at other headstones the next time you go to this cemetery for his siblings and parents. I think this is the couple I'm looking for.

Would you have any additional info on this Amanda Smith aka Hilma Amanda Ogren ?
