Bio Photo Someone remembers, someone cares.
Your name is whispered in someone's prayers.
Do you want a memorial transferred to your care? I transfer freely, (and out of guidelines,) as long as I have no connection to the memorial.

If I take a volunteer photo for you, it is yours to do with as you wish. Volunteers are doing you a favor! Please remember to acknowledge every volunteer who helps you out.

Note to folks who use this site as a genealogy source:
Many memorials I post have been thoroughly researched. Always check your sources, take nothing at face value, and don't believe anything unless you can prove it yourself.
Thank you.
Please visit my parents,
Our beloved dog and cat,

Hi, Pam-- thanks for the note. The two are the same: Boothill and the Virginia City Cemetery are the same thing. I'll see if I can figure out how to merge the two memorials.

I am Agnes and Jabez's great great granddaughter. I've written a novel based on their lives: AGNES CANON'S WAR. It's available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble, if you're interested. How are you related?

Also see my website: for more info. There's an email link there, too.

Thank you for the email about the Barna Hadley.

I am on the Board for both Pine Grove and Laurel Hill Cemeteries ... I photographed every stone in Pine Grove Cemetery personally and the Hadley Family is not buried there. Even the background of the photograph is not like Pine Grove Cemetery in Deposit, NY ... you can see pavement in the picture. There is no road, dirt or paved in the cemetery.

I suggested that they might have been buried in Pine Grove Cemetery in Meredith, Delaware Co, New York, since they were insisting the cemetery was named Pine Grove ... and that sits on a hill and has paved roads through it.

When I return to Deposit in October, I will look into the Laurel Hill Cemetery claim to the Hadley Family.

RE: Thank you!
I was up here in the Portland area
Visiting my son. Thought I would visit the Willamette National Cemetery, and spent two days taking photos. Couldn't get all of them done. A lot of demand. I took over 50 photos includ
ing your request. A very enjoyable experience for me as a veteram.

William Nickerson
Sure thing! I will transfer him to you! I wish there was a stone for him but this cemetery is quite old and so many of the stones have tumbled or crumbled and and been covered by earth, or can't be read anymore. I've spent a long time walking the cemetery to try and preserve the memories of those who have gone before us!

RE: Minerva
Danke... appreciate your passion/"due diligence" re: this set of memorials. It's nice to have a collaborator like you who REALLY wants to get it right. I'll put some "caveat comments" on my memorial... as we continue to find new data. ;o)

Hello again
I just checked the Oregon Death Index and it shows that Anna S. Nickerson died on the 23 of August 1912 in Lane County. We have no record of her at Laurel Grove but sometimes the records just don't exist, Maybe one of her children buried her elsewhere.

Hi Pam
I just transferred Serenas Nickerson to you. He belongs with his family.

I am the historian, genealogist for Laurel Grove cemetery and since I have all of the records at my house I have put many people on findagrave that have not got stones. Originally the DAR walked the cemetery and had a book with the names and where they were buried. My friend and I took two years and walked the cemetery, checked every record and every scrap of paper, went to Salem, our state capital and got death records etc,etc. We then published a new book adding the folks that didn't have stones. Your Serenas was one of them. Could the other Nickersons also be related to you, they are buried one row over from him.

Our records state that $15 was paid 17 March 1904 by Mrs Serenas Nickerson. I wonder why.Do you know what happened to her?

I am sorry to hear of the dead of your ex husband.

Mary Binns
Seifert Family
Hello. My name is Mary Binns and I have been corresponding with a wonderful gentleman from Germany who has been helping me with my family genealogy. I told him that I would try and reciprocate. I saw that you had written to Cindy about the Seifert family and was wondering if you had any information on a Josef(ph) Seifert born in 1852 and is wife Berta Cramer who lived in Marion, Indiana. Thank you so much, Mary

P.S. This lovely couple is in their 80s and I accidentally found them.
