Please, remember that even if the person in charge of the memorial won't add your edit, that you are not allowed to post in the flower section. I think this sucks

Finding Sarah Catherine Reed
Dear Lavender;
I can't thank you enough for posting the resting site for Sarah Catherine Swisher Reed. She is my great-grandmother. We knew she was resting in Portland but a cousin couldn't remember where. Now we know and I am very grateful.

Her maiden name was Swisher, her parents were Abraham Swisher and Edith Fairman Swisher.

When she and her husband retired from the ranch they moved to Portland, Oregon. Her husband George Nelson Reed died in 1921 and is buried in the Reed-Hill Cemetery in Wilbur, Oregon.

Her children are: Harriett E. Reed, married John S. Sloan; Valeria E. Reed, married Clarence Lee Spaugh; Anna Catherine Reed (my grandmother), married George Michael Moody; Abraham Dwight Reed, married Ida Phelina Maley; Calvin Madison Reed, married Lottie Viola Eveland; Donnie Evelyn Reed, married Oscar Ingle and Gladys Hortense Reed, married Frank Adams Robinson.

And yes she had a brother named Haymon.

Thank you again for taking the time to make this entry on Find A Grave, I greatly appreciate it.

My name is P Kristine Hurd, I have been researching Kira's family for the last 5 years. I noticed that you left a note on her mother's Memorial that you wanted to transfer her Memorial to her daughter. Kira does not have a Find A Grave account. I is very interested in her family history, just does not have time to research at this time. I would be very happy if you would transfer, Marilyn Lisa Allen Tarabochia's Memorial page to me. I would like to be able to link her other family members to her page.
Thank you for your consideration.

RE: Edward Gray # 86763810
Sorry but I don't. Believe it or not my source came from a member of the Serle family now living in Australia. This person found a connection between Serle and Nash families in England and contacted me so I set out to search Oregon records. I found two other EKGs who died in Oregon. Thanks you very much for responding.

RE: Edward Gray # 86763810
Unfortunately not my Edward Kidder Gray. Wrong parents and the DC shows birth 1843, not 1848. Or at least that is the way I read the document. thank you for responding. I'll keep searching. One hint I received indicated a daughter born Lake Oswego, Oregon. Merry Christmas and have a great New Year.

Hi Lavender!
This was my first time taking pictures for Find A Grave and I used my phone to take them. Then when I was uploading them to the website, a popup ad kept messing up my upload, so I uploaded the picture twice accidentally. When it was brought to my attention, I went ahead and deleted the extra pic.
Merry Christmas to you as well!

RE: Robert Redpath
Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner... I've been in hospital and rehab since the end of September. I'm not sure which Robert Redpath you are looking for. Who were his parents?
