Happy Spring everyone! I look forward to Spring and Summer, and to helping you all out here in Washington State. Let me know if you would like some helps! |
Some have asked about my father - it has been almost one year since he died and he is still missed, every day. Thank you all for your previous comments about Dad and his 14 year battle with Alzheimer's Disease. He was a great Christian man. Full of kindness, very compassionate, gentle and humble. He will be so missed by all of us four children, 14 grand children, 20 great grand children, and 3 great great grand children. Dad -- Your legacy of family, love, and compassion, will live on in our hearts forever.
Dad is now pain free. My beloved Dad was Leonard L. Rodig, #164857784.
GREAT NEWS - Our Tombstone Project has been launched. What an amazing project we have begun, with adding markers to unmarked graves in our Snohomish County, Washington cemeteries! Thank you all for your interest in our project. We are looking for donations for headstones for unmarked graves! www.stillygen.org. Wonderful community outreach and focus on historical preservation! Stay tuned for future information on our project!
My love for family history came from my parents and my grandmothers, Elsie Stockham and Minnie Rodig. Both of my Idaho grandmothers wrote down birth dates and death dates, and kept detailed family letters. And Mother loved to stop by every country cemetery she saw, while on their camping travels. They traveled around the country looking for family graves and new relatives. And had many exciting stories to share, and met wonderful families.
When we discovered that the Oregon Trail went through our Stockham family farm in Idaho, my love of history grew. And with it, sharing stories of my family and how they came west. What brave families to pioneer West!
I continue to hunt for family lines and fill in the blank spaces. Some of the families I am researching are Allen, Rodig, Franklin, Stabbal, Morgel, Stockham, Jones, Lynch, Follon/Fallon, Spangler, Quick, Smith, Johnson, Sherrill, Ferguson, Hamilton, Davis, Crawford, Gardiner, Blick (deBlieck) and Hensley.

Thanks so much!

Thank you for your reply! Yes, I'd love to see your Johnson family information. I don't yet see names or locations in your email that match with my family, but I also have lots of unknowns. Is this where you'd like what I have on Robert D's family? I'm new to Find a Grave and don't want to fill up your message board.

You're very welcome. It´s my pleasure to visit your beloved Dad on his first Angelday.
I know that it is hard to loss the Father. My Father died 12 years ago, but I miss him still very much. I´m glad to find the site of Find A Grave, so I can visit my father every day, and I´m happy to see how many members visit my father.
The loss of the husband at sea and travel alone to America with two children is very hard. She was a courageous woman.
Best wishes for you and your family

I see you left flowers for Belle Johnson, d. 1917, buried in the Gibson Cemetery near Neosho, Newton, MO. Is she a relative, or do you know about her? I'm working on my Johnsons who lived in and near Newton County, and have seen an old picture labeled "Belle Johnson," possibly my great-great grandfather, Robert D. Johnson's, sister. Belle, Robert, and Johnson are such common names, but I still hope to pin down the right family. Thank you!
|Kathleen Irwin||RE: Rainwaters|
Yes, found the family and sent the photo home where it belongs.
|Alice||RE: George Still Taylor|
I don't have his d/c but his place of burial is listed on what I posted on his page, gotten from Washington Digital Archives.

How kind of you.
Thank you very much, Tami.

You're welcome, Tami. :)
|Ruth ||RE: F. W. Gaufin|
That is fine with me in regard to the transfer. I don't know of any other memorials you have of my ancestors, but if I find some, I will let you know. Thanks for the offer!
I hope you and your family are doing well. We're okay at this time. Hope you have a great summer!
