Bio Photo Hi! I grew up in Portland, OR and now live in Hood River, OR. I am so excited for the opportunity to research gravesites for my family. One of the first things I located was my great-great-great Grandparents, across the country that I know I most likely will never get to see the gravesites in person, but to find that some kind person has posted photos to this webpage is amazing.

10/26/16 I have been very busy with my 4 year old and family illness. I will do updates as I have time so please be patient.

Thank You!
Thank you TONS
Its folk like you that brighten up days for people like myself, so far from where the family came from, so long ago. The images you have given me (and the world) for genealogy,for tracing family steps is GREAT. There is a dimension added by your work- memorials and images- that can not be replaced nor underestimated.
Good luck with your ill child, and I hope your 2017 is FANTASTIC.

Hi Heidi -
I see that you left a flower on Mary Hawk's page some time ago. I'm looking for proof that Barnabus Valentine was her father. Do you have even a shred of information that could point me in that direction?

RE: mininger
nice to hear from you.

Think we have a John Wm. in the list of minsinger sibs., but will check for sure.
Where did your Minsingers live? And do you know of any other names of Minsingers farther back than Gotlieb?

just two days ago I rec'd info from a Peggy McClure Gordon
from Wisconsin who found me on Find a Grave.
this is her info.
Grandmother hazel Minsinger, daughter of Elmer Minsinger,
and his mother Frances Winzler.

I too have been busy and haven"t been on ancestry or Find a grave in a few months. currently in the process of moving to a new house.
Will keep in touch later in the summer.

Caroline Eichley Minsinger
HI, Heidi

I have been working on my tree on ancestry , the John Eichley branch .My problem is that I can only link 8 children to him, Mary 1835,Jacob 1837,Rebecca 1839,Daniel 1841,Fredrick 1843,Conrad 1844, Elizabeth 1847 and Ellen

I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIND ANY TIE TO Caroline Eichley Minsinger in my cemetery books or History Of MARSHALL TOWNSHIP which includes a section on the Eichley (Ickley) family
I would appreciate any info you can provide on where the link (Find A Grave) that appears comes from.

Charles Edwin Minsinger (1878-1959)
Back in August of 2011 you posted an amazing photo of Charles Edwin Minsinger. I was hoping you would be able to read what each of his medals are as that is history too. I tried to enlarge but it was just too grainy.

I you are related to the Minsinger family then we are related. I am down the Fowler line, Harriet Blaine Minsinger Fowler (1884-1932) was married to John L Fowler (1880 - 1956). Their son Allen Cordell Fowler (1906-1982) is my Great-Grandfather.

Thank you for all the time you have taken to photograph so many graves.

Hey Heidi, my great, great, great, great grandfather is Gottlieb Min singer. I am just beginning this journey into the past and would love to get any info you have on our family.

Also, it's a small world my sister in law lives in Hood River. I just signed up on here to reach out to you so I'm not too sure how this works.
