Bio and Links
I've always been fascinated with grave sites, visited cemeteries, made rubbings, took photos, etc. and must say that find-a-grave is an ideal site.

I've worked on family history projects for over 35 years and will for as long as I can. I'm more than happy to share family history with anyone interested.

The primary names I research are STROOPE, KEA, Pitts, Howton, Trammel, Hopper, Hale, Thetford, CARPER, BARTON, Lyon, Phipps, Griffith, Ellison, Shumate and many allied lines.

When I document a grave site, I try to include some information on the parents, siblings, marriage, etc. hoping this will help someone identify their relative. In some cases, when recording my line, or lines, I've created memorials for as much of the cemetery as I've had access to.

I'm not likely to post obits. I prefer to glean information from any I receive.

I'll be glad to transfer your family member to you. Always remember the FAG # for the memorial page and, of course, your FAG #. PLEASE do not send me a big list of names with no numbers included... thanks... I really liberal with transfers, would like to see family manage their ancestors.

If I have grave site information in error, please contact me so that corrections can be made.

Recent projects include:

--Gig Harbor and Haven of Rest Cemeteries, Gig Harbor, Pierce County, Washington

--JCC Smith Cemetery in Texas

--Knight of Pythias and Sunset Lane Memorial Park, Port Orchard, Kitsap County, Washington

--Lovington and Resthaven Cemeteries, Lovington, Lea County, New Mexico

--Mountain View Memorial Park, Lakewood, Pierce County, Washington

--Mount Calvary Cemetery (Santa Barbara Cemetery) , Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, New Mexico

--Calvary, Old Pioneer and Tacoma Cemeteries, Tacoma, Pierce County, Washington

--Riverside Cemetery in Vassar, Tuscola County, Michigan

Thank you for making such a beautiful memorial for my brother Nestor. I was just about to when I discovered he already had one.

Information on family gravesites.
Hello Kathy,

I was surfing today and looked up my son's ancestors (ex spouse's) and I see unknown info. :(

I would like to fill in the blanks.

For Ole and Karrin Anderson, buried on Hartstine Island and their daughter Mathie, buried in Mt. View Cemetery, Lakewood, Both in Washington State. These are me ex's grandparents and her parents/grandparents. Makes me sad do see the relationships are lost so I'd like to give information. All of them dead, gone, and forgotten.

Eleanor M. Broedahl Gillispie Stueby
Please correct Eleanor's listing. Correct information:

Eleanor M. Broedahl Gillispie Stueby was married to Louis L. Gillispie until his death in 1966. Eleanor and Louis Gillispie had three children together.

Eleanor later married Elmo Stueby.
Eleanor and Elmo Stueby had no children together.

Elmo had two daughters from a previous marriage.

Find A Grave Memorial# 74691950 Elvin Cleo Martin
You may want to reverse the transfers of Elvin Cleo Martin & his wife - I was just wondering if you knew him.
I found out that he is NOT the Elvie Martin I was looking for. The man I was looking for is Elvie J Martin & is alive & well in SLC, UT.
Thanks anyway,
Ruth L Glass

Find A Grave Memorial# 74691950 Elvin Cleo Martin
I was wondering if you are related to or knew Elvin Cleo Martin. Do you know if he went by "Elvie"? I'm trying to find out if he knew my father in the Navy or perhaps my mother. An Elvie Martin came to my mother's viewing & funeral in 2005 and I have 2 old Navy pictures of "Elvie Martin" from my mother's things.
The obit for the Elvin @ this memorial says he did not join the Navy until 1944 - do you know if this is correct for this Elvin? My Navy pictures are dated 1942.
Thank you for any info you can share,
Ruth L Glass

Roger Marocco
I knew Roger personally, you 25,000 postings, I have 50 seems like you could be a little less protective especially when they are a complete stranger with incomplete or no bio information.
By the way what two " pieces " are you referring to. Maybe you have his memorial mixed up with one of the other 25,000 you have. thanks
