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.

RE: Susan Annie Hoppes Jenkins Jump
My husband is a relative. Hoppes is her maiden name. Someone who is searching for her may not find her the way it is currently listed.

RE: Isabella Cook in Lone Fir photo request
Thanks so much for this information. I am going to see if I can get more information from the cemetery.

Mary Becker was buried in Omaha
If you will Edit your cemetery (go to Edit Cemetery, choose Calvary, Douglas, Nebraska, and dot that cemetery), all your links and flowers and everything will transfer over. If you will kindly let me know, I will then delete my dupe (it will show up when you click "all Beckers")

Thank you for all the hard work you did with the links. Because yours was done earlier, mine is the one that has to go.

RE: Myrtle McCarty in Lone Fir
Apparently you accepted the edit before I wrote to explain. In any case, the links now look good. Thanks!

RE: Myrtle McCarty in Lone Fir

I've added the year of marriage to Myrtle's link with Albert Guy McCarty so she'll appear in the correct chronological sequence in the links to his two wives. At present Myrtle is listed as his first wife when she actually was his second. Adding the year of marriage will fix this. As with all edits, your approval is needed for the correction to occur.

I've run into this problem before and have come to the conclusion it's a flaw --- or omission --- in the editing feature. I wish they'd fix it!

I hope my explanation helps. Many site users wouldn't bother with such a detail, but as a genealogist I'm fussy about such things. I hope you understand.

Best wishes!

Hi Linda,
Thank you so much for letting me know that his grave is unmarked. I have removed the request and let the gal know who created the memorial so she can add that info.

Thanks so much for all your help! Your time spent on behalf of our family is much appreciated!

Kindest regards, Valerie (48178542)
