Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy goes back to the days where information had to be gleaned from dusty books found in the corners of libraries. The Internet has greatly expanded my searching capabilities.

The family names that I am primarily interested in are Sanders, Kirkpatrick, Hunt, Froman, Gist, Taylor, Combs, McPherson, Adams & Haddock.

Feel free to use headstone or personal pictures that I've posted on memorials -- no royalties required.

If you have any additional information that you would like added, let me know. I generally process edits within 1-2 days. You will be cited as the source of the additional info. If you would rather not be cited, please provide me with an independent source that I can include. Thank you for your cooperation.

I'm not interested in "collecting memorials." I take pictures and create memorials to make sure that everyone in my corner of the world is remembered in some small way. I'm happy to transfer memorials to relatives/friends who want to manage them, so please ask if I've created a memorial for someone you'd like to take care of. Your relationship to them isn't an important factor to me.


Greenwood Cemetery (Renton) in progress. I took a sample batch of a thousand or so photos and discovered many, many undocumented memorials so I'm attacking it systematically. If I've created a memorial, I have the photo. If you need it sooner rather than later, just send me an edit and I will attach it immediately. Thanks for your patience.


Completed Cemetery Projects:
-- Cedar Lawns (Redmond)
-- Kirkland Cemetery (Many unmarked graves in this cemetery. Many stones very deteriorated.)
-- Redmond Community Cemetery
-- Sunset Hills (Bellevue)
-- Hillside (Issaquah)
-- Upper Hillside (Issaquah)

Note re Kirkland Cemetery: This is a heavily treed cemetery and many of the stones are covered in moss. If there is a particular stone that you would like re-photographed, feel free to let me know and I will see what I can do to get the best possible picture.

Although I have marked a cemetery as done, new graves have most likely been added and I may have missed a few, despite my best efforts to be organized. If you need a photo, just ask and I'll do my best.

RE: Thorson
Hi Mary. Yes, we are fortunate indeed to have the vast majority of old photos labeled. Mom is 92, and over the years, even some names that slipped her mind came back to her over time, so we're in really good shape. And Mom's father's family took lots and lots of photos. Take care.

Thank you!

The note on the memorial says information from certificate of death ... which I have found is not any more reliable than any other document so I am taking him out of the cemetery and will put a note on the memorial as to what we have found, Thank you.
