Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy began 67 years ago when I listened to my mother and grandmother trace relationships of their friends and family.

As a Find A Grave photo volunteer for Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery, I sometimes stumble over a neglected or forgotten grave marker. I add information or create memorials for the lives I discover in this way.

I've lived in Portland since 1985. Do not presume to lecture me on the city of today or yesterday, the history or current status of Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery.

If you have rules and procedures and requirements for memorials and photos, don't expect me to follow them. As far as cleaning headstones? Don't be silly. I clean off the bird ****, wipe the dust, pull the weeds, rinse the mud. What good is a photo where the name can't be seen or the dates visible?

Use the "edit" tab to request additions, changes, transfers. Do not burden me with the task of searching for the memorial.

Permission to use photos?
The Genealogical Forum of Oregon is doing an article in our quarterly publication about the Cleaves, and I wonder if you would please let us publish the photos you have provided for:
Laura Cleave Barnett # 59406642;
Shirley Lester Barnett # 59406572;
Shirley Leonard Barnett # 59406696;
Mary Olive Kanarr Bennett # 59406773.
We'd give you credit, of course, and we could send you e-copies or hard copies if you like.
You can see some of our work at
Please let me know if this would be okay.
Thank you for your consideration.

Butler Davidson
Hi Linda. I added a bunch of memorials for the Butler Davidson cemetery a while back. If any of them are family to you and you would like to manage them, just let me know. I am not interested in keeping other people's family memorials, just don't want anyone to be forgotten. Jeanne

Pauline Drews
I haven't updated Pauline's info.
She is buried in Lone Tree as her last married name "Pauline M. Stanley". Her maiden name was Drews.

I will delete my entry and let the corrected one ride.

Thank you ever so much for Laura's headstone photo. It looks like you had to kind of uncover it, and thank you for that. Wow, it is so said when you see headstones like this, as you wonder what happened to family members or themselves. Thank you for the extra effort on this, and for what you do with God's Blessings to you, Alvin
