Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a genealogy junkie for the last 40+ years. Got hooked when my Dad showed me the parchment family tree that my Grandfather had created on our Swedish ancestors. My mother's side is mostly German and ?Irish/English? If anyone has a link to Butlers in Rochester, Monroe Co., NY around 1850 I would like to hear from them. Thanx to all you contributors out there!

Donald Richard Anderson, 119696868
Hello Vita,
You created a Find A Grave memorial page for Donald Richard Anderson, birth unknown, death Oct., 2013. I have found a Don R. Anderson 1924-2013 listed on a crypt in Lincoln Memorial mausoleun. On the same crypt are:
Rose M. Anderson, 1895-1998.
Margaret M. Renoud, 1926-2001.

I've also found a memorial page for a Donald Richard Anderson, born Jul. 24, 1924, died Oct. 24, 2013, burial in Mount Calvary Cemetery, in Portland. 120115195.

I'm wondering if all three of these burial memorials are for the same person? I have a couple of photos of the crypt I found at Lincoln Memorial Park.

I've contacted all three cemeteries, they all checked their records and all three said they don't have Donald's remains. Therefore, I'm wondering if his name was added to the crypt at Lincoln just as a memorial only notation? His Obituary in the Oregonian didn't list the name of the funeral home or his burial location. [The Oregonian, Nov. 3, 2013.]

Are you related to Donald? Do you have documentation or a source showing his burial at Willamette? The Find A Grave member who created the memorial page in Mount Calvary Cemetery was Nicole, 8 days after you created yours.

I would like to post the photos I have on either your memorial page or the one created by Nicole.

Thanks! I've sent a message to the creator to delete the memorial I maintain. If he does not reply, I shall request the edit through Find A Grave.

Vita, I added the picture for Jim to your memorial but could you put his memorial in the Plentywood Memorial Cemetery instead of no cemetery. Thank you, Leann

Next time I am over at Willamette I will get a photo of Mr. Cuffs stone. It might be "to the memory of" stone. Appreciate your help & made a note on Calvary entry.

RE: Larry Todd Murphy, 146294579
Hello John,
Thank you for answering and for doing the additional research, finding the obit that confirms the birth location to what I have, Longview, WA.

Larry Todd Murphy, 146294579
Hello Vita,
You sent an EDIT regarding the birthplace of Larry being Kelso, Washington. This is different than the information I have that he was born in Longview, Washington. The family lived in both places, and they are about 5 miles apart. Please advise as to the documentation you have for Kelso being Larry's birthplace [newspaper, family Bible, certificate]. Are you a family member, and if yes, what is your relationship.
