|Bio and Links|
My interest in genealogy began 66 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.

|Mark and Glorene Stevens||Maude Henderson Graham|
You asked who Maude was mentioned in William Graham's obit.
Maude was born Rose Emaline Henderson but went by Maude. Her last name gets confusing as her mother remarries a Wills and she shows up as Rosa Wills in 1870. Then in 1880 she shows up as Rosa Henderson. In the meantime her mother remarries a Spohn. So I am not really sure what her maiden name should be, but she was born as a Henderson.

|Lauren Darm||RE: Joseph Fellner in Greenwood Hills|
I was doing personal research at the Oregon Genealogical Forum when I came across "Joseph Fellner"s plot information from the Greenwood Hills archives.
Thusly I uploaded a photo of this information to his profile under the category of "other", because generally, people enjoy having any information in relation to their loved ones.
From the ground work I have done at Greenwood, many of the stones there are buried, illegible, and broken. A good many individuals there were buried without headstones, so sometimes burial records are all relatives have to verify that passed family members are even there.
If in the future I do happen across the plot where "Joseph Fellner" is buried, and a headstone is present, I will upload a photo of it accordingly.
As for now, I was merely attempting to provide you with pertinent information in regards to "Fellner".

I wondered if you know I'd Susie Hazel Mount is the daughter of William Mount and Minnie Jenkins?
|Valerie Pena||Rosie Haggett|
I received a message from you that I had duplicated a record you had made. I have checked and not sure now which one you want me to delete. #:137745033
or the record with all information about with parents link and siblings link. Yes, she is the Rosie from the records. I found her mover than 20 yrs ago in those records as I already knew she existed according to stories told to me by my Grandmother Edith Mae Haggett Harlow. Also my cousin grandson of Charles Haggett had their mother Matilda Colwell Haggett's bible with the names birth dates and death dates of her 3 young daughters who died within 3 wks of each other of diptheria.
Please let me know what I should do or since all the information is already linked to her siblings and her parents perhaps 137745033 should be deleted as she is not easy to find for family who know her as Rosie Haggett.
|Janet Personette||RE: LaFlesh|
Thanks so much. If you look up a Lawson Laflesh in Silverbrook Cemetery in Niles Michigan and read his bio it might help explain what I am doing. Thanks so much for responding.
Linda, I see that you have created find a grave ages for some of the LaFlesh family. Are you by any chance related to them? If you are please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.

Hi there - I've just added a memorial for Mary Devore in Glenwood Cemetery, Mills County, Iowa. Her record in the Mills County Cemetery Book (1983), available in the genealogy room of the Glenwood Public Library, shows she was the wife of John Devore. No such person was buried near her, so I began looking and found a John and a Mary in Cotten Cemetery, Mills County. Could be this is the real grave of Mary, who died 1873, while John buried in Cotton died 1874? The M.D. in Cotton could be only a marker for her, or she could be buried in Cotton and the marker in Glenwood Cemetery erected by later relatives. It it impossible to know for sure, but wanted you to know of the link.
Good luck in your family searches,
