Bio and Links
Bio Photo Been into genealogy since about 2000. Love cemeteries and am an occasional RV traveler.

I am a "no-dispositions-unknown" contributor. This means that not only will I not create Burials Unknown (except as permitted), I will not link memorials to BUs.

Concentrating my efforts now to Cowlitz and Lewis Counties. Currently (2010-2014) working on Winlock Cemetery, Winlock, WA: trying to decipher my last 100 photos of deteriorating stones. Little Falls Cemetery & Vader Catholic Cemetery, Vader, WA are done!!(9/2010)

2014: Continuing row-mowing work at Whittle&Hubbard Cemetery, Castle Rock, WA.

Also inputting cemetery records in IOWA from transcriptions published by members of the IA Genealogical Society.

From the Find A Grave FAQ's: "The copyright of all photos posted to Find A Grave remains with the original submitter. No use of photos for any other website or personal use is given without prior consent of the original submitter."

[NOTE: With attribution, MY photos may be used for your personal, not-for-profit use. Please enjoy them!]

Another note: I will gladly transfer memorials *within* the FindAGrave guidelines (see FAQs) only. I will be happy to add links and bio info for any memorial I manage (please use the 'Edit' tab and the 'Suggest-A-Correction SAC' feature); the recent spate of deletions, dupes, and widespread name-collecting of persons trying to build their family tree on this site is a misuse of the site's original intent.

Lloyd Ray Blanchard
hace sent edits for his father and mother; his mother remarried Fred C Blanchard and I assume Fred adopted Lloyd, thus the name change.

Gertrude M Waranka memorial
I am looking for a Gertrude M. nee Drake born September 2,1909 in Lewis County, Washington, daughter of Norman Drake and Ethel nee Homan, had at least three known husbands, 1st Max R Pollard, 2nd Marshall Ray Phillips, 3rd Fred C. Blanchard- she did not die under any of those names. She was living with 3rd husband Fred C Blanchard in Cowlitz County, WA in 1940. I find no marriage records at all for George Waranka and a Gertrude. Are you aware of any local resources for an obituary for Gertrude, or any other records?

Thanks for any help

I am the inexperienced volunteer that was unable to fulfill your photo requests. I am out there taking photos weekly and would be glad to try again. Maybe if you would try giving the office a call, you might have better luck. When I called the office, I was put on hold for a long while. They came back and double checked spelling of last name and I held for a while again. They stated they cannot find any record of them being buried there. Of course, that could be totally wrong. Maybe put the plot in the memorial and I will go again.

Regarding the burial site of this entry (#82491311), I visited the cemetery in December of 2011, recorded the info (even marker inscription). Not sure why the cemetery office "states" they are not buried there. Is it possible that I have the couple in the wrong cemetery? Yes, but very unlikely...because I usually work just one cemetery in a day. Perhaps you can find an obit. Questions? You might wish to email me. Thank you.

I'm hoping you can find the grave of my grandfathers brother as I'm trying to connect the family. I looked through the Winlock listings. He's Charles Orbin Williams

BIRTH 30 JAN 1893 Benton County, Arkansas

Thankyou for any help you can give.
