Bio and Links
Bio Photo At this point in time, regretfully, I will only claim requests for (Old) Tacoma Cemetery (not New Tacoma) or Mountain View (Lakewood) Pierce County, WA.

NOTE: I do not automatically approve corrections as I have found that some that are suggested are not correct.

A REQUEST - if you would call and get the location, it would be appreciated and add it to your message when requesting or ask the owner of the site to post it in the plot field.

If you find any errors, duplications or bad photos (covered with debris or moss) that I have taken, please let me know and I will do what is appropriate. Some memorials don't photograph well but I try to get the best shot of them.

My family tree includes the Ritchey (Richey,Ritchie?), Temperley, Molinder and Stenborg lines and has expanded from there to include to many to mention here. The Ritchey history begins with Memorial 58729129. At this point the Temperley line begins with Memorial 18962125 but hopefully more to come. And the Molinder history begins with 66797509. If anyone has any additional information about these lines, please feel free to contact me.

If you are a relative of any of the names I have entered other than my own family line and would like them transferred to you for maintenance, make the request through the EDIT button on their site then the Suggest A Correction link and copy your site ID into the message as it makes it much easier for me to then transfer.

Thank you....and enjoy this addicting site.

RE: Jacob Karn
Thx for the response,

Jacob was one of four children to Johann Adam Karn and Maria Regina Karn both born in Germany. The children were Catherine, John Adam, Jacob, and Christian. John Adam Karn is my GGrandfather and is buried in Waynesburg, Ohio along with his wife Harriett Edleman. The Karns migrated to the USA in the 1850's from Bavaria Germany. All the children were born in Germany. John Adams son George was my Grandfather and is buried in Sunset Hills, Canton, Ohio. I have found Christian who died in 1925 in PA.

All the dates for Jacob match with what I show in my tree including his spouse Mary Gould Karn. Jacob and Mary were married in 1862. Their children were Julia, Daisy, and John.

Not sure what else you may need but this is what I have in my tree.

Jacob Karn
Hello, Jacob Karn was my 2nd Great Uncle born to John Adam Karn and Maria Regina Rilling Karn. Jacob was born in Germany, NOT Ohio. His family migrated to the USA in the 1850's. His brother John Karn was my Great Grandfather and is buried in Waynesburg, Ohio where the family located upon arrival to the USA. His siblings were Christian, John, and Catherine.

If you would like to contact me to verify please do.

Kathryn Hall Jackson & Kent W. Jackson Memorials
I would like to start managing Kathryn Hall Jackson # 162825091 and Kent W. Jackson # 162663423 memorials if you would please transfer them over over to me.
They are the parents of my best friend. I am trying to get all of his family together in one place. If you could transfer them to me I would really appreciate it a lot.
Thank You so much

RE: Hick, Harriet/Harriett
Thanks so much for all you did!! I appreciate it. It sounds like the section I'm working on too. I'm going thru an initial run of it and THEN will have to do some "digging" to bring out more stones. Thanks again!

RE: Kaminsky at High Valley
The memorial stating that the location of ashes was unknown was deleted so your memorial should be fine now.

Thanks again for working with me. Can I do anything more for you from Ellensburg?
