I have been researching my family history for many years now, with no end in sight! I hope to be able to leave my children and grandchildren with a well documented record of their ancestry. I would love to help others in the search for their family while I continue the search for my own. In addition to photos I am also willing to look up and copy documents at the Oregon State Archives.|

|S. W.||Eva Heim|
This is concerning Eva Heim (Find A Grave Memorial #52477671) I realize you did not create it, but because you manage it, I hope you can help me. You have the Landry family stone as an additional picture on the memorial, and I have been looking for Eva Landry for a long time. I am hoping this is her. The date of birth on the stone says 1890, but my Eva was born Sept. of 1889. Is her little stone together with the big Landry stone? I'd love to communicate with you about this family.

|Jan Fenter||Also found Lyman C. & Ida Cottrell|
While taking the photo of Audrey Cottrell's gravestone in Lincoln Memorial Park, I also found the gravestone for Lyman C. & Ida Cottrell. I looked for the memorials for them but didn't find any on Find A Grave, in Lincoln Memorial. If and when you create the memorials for them, let me know and I'll post the photo for their gravestone too. The gravestone has the following information:
Lyman C. Cottrell, 1894 - 1959, Father.
Ida Cottrell, 1894 - 1979, Mother.
|R. Mark Brown||RE: John Galbraith's photo|
Hi Donna -I grew up and still own a house just a couple of miles from Willard. I guess I could have taken the photo except I didn't know he was there. I have been there but I didn't spend a lot of time there - several years ago.
Everyone worked at Willard at one time - it seemed to be the thing to do graduate from HS and go to work at Willard. Not my thing I went to college and became a music teacher. My mother was a self employed beautician who decided to go to Willard to work when I was between 12 to 14. This was difficult because she was seen by those who worked there kind of as an outsider coming in.
My neighbor - a boy my age - worked there and he just retired from the Prison. He was first hand involved in caring for the cemetery. I know that he cared very deeply about the site. Some f the markers that are set off to the side from my understanding were replaced with other markers so it's not the case that bodies were just lost. They remarked them. Another cousin of mine - who is related to William Trim said that some graves were moved. She says that William was moved and her cousin who happened to the same name - William Trim - helped move the person with the stone you see. He did not know at the time that he was related to that person. My neighbor friend helped salvage the articles from the cemetery (markers) that are a part of the suitcases exhibit. The local undertaker tells me that there is a person left from the hospital days - who is still to be buried there when the time comes. ( I guess it's possible that has happened since my discussion with him about 3 years ago)
The illusion of lack of care and attention is not necessarily the case when it comes to a couple of the people I know first hand with a - hand in the works so to speak. BUT - it is possible that the limitations as to what they can do makes it appear so.
William younger days is a very sad story. I'm so happy to have found the stone. His brothers and sisters where scattered all over the place and it's exciting to bring about some closure with him and his brother Samuel who's cemetery stone I just got a photo of in Wisconsin. None of the rest of the family knew he was still alive. They believed he died after the Civil War. There is a greater story here and that is the story of Williams Grandfather Melvin Brown who is one of the two central characters in the PD Manville 1806 book Lucinda, or the Mountain Mourner. The book was a curse that brought misery to the children and grandchildren of Melvin Brown.

When we were at the cemetery today we found Zita headstone it had sunk alittle so we were digging around it to get the picture and found her brother his name was buried in the dirt. The pictures not the best but it was hard to take because of the angel. Right next to them was Verne and Lillie I took a picture of there stone. Do you need it? Lisa Davis
|Judi Armstrong-Skyles||RE: shearer|
Let me know when you get the memorial made for his wife and I will attach the photo to it as well. I noticed in my snooping around that you took volunteer photos of Elmer Tracy Mctimmonds and his wife. May I have your permmission to use the pictures on Ancestry? He was my husband's great-uncle. Small world huh? Thanks, Judi
|Judi Armstrong-Skyles||RE: shearer|
You are very welcome.
|Vita Brevis||Re: Mary and James Bentley's memorials|
LH... I would be glad to add any additional info you have for these memorials. John
|MRM||RE: Dorothy and Naomi Ledford|
I just transferred both memorials over to you. I saw in your bio your willingness to help regarding the Oregon State Archives - I may take you up on that offer at some point :-) its one place I need to definitely visit but haven't had a trip.
