Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am proud of my family and all those that have come before me and those who will come after me.

I have been researching and putting together my family tree since 1996!

My lineage is as follows & if I created a memorial for someone noted in your family tree, please know they are in mine too.

PORTEOUS - HAVENS - KLINE & many more.
PRICE - VAN HORNE & many more.
PLUSH - BENNETT & many more.

If someone has transferred a memorial to me, please do not ask to have it transferred to you. I only request those that are in my family tree and therefore will keep those.

Any memorials I have added are for the purpose of genealogy research only. Memorials are not intended as an invasion of privacy or for disrespect towards the remaining living family members of the departed.

Keep in mind the internet allows for the ability to obtain birth, marriage, & death certificates on loved one who have passed as well as obituaries. Public records are "PUBLIC".

I will be more than happy to remove a memorial. Please use the "suggestion" edit tab. " Please remove memorial for ..." request is all that is needed - NOTHING MORE! And it will be removed immediately.

If you have any questions in regards to privacy, errors, etc. - see the "Help with Find A Grave" link on the left for further assistance.

Major Jefferson C. Rogers - Co G, 5th Texas
Ms. Price,
My name is Brent Reidenbach and I'm an amateur historian that has recently started doing research on Co G, 5th Texas (The Milam County Greys) and was wondering if you would be willing to discuss your 3x great-grandfather's involvement.

Please feel free to contact me any time at

John Bennett
Hi Michelle. Checked my photo library and did not find a photo for either of them. Not to say they are not there. Have several photos for "Bennett" but not those two. With the weather and all, no telling when someone can get out and look. If you are family perhaps you can contact the office for a location. Sometimes they are very helpful to volunteers, sometimes not. BJ

You're welcome! I was finally able to get the rest of the photos posted. Something strange kept happening last night. Everything would freeze up. Seems to be working okay now.

If you need anything else, just let me know.

Best regards,


Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukkah

You are very welcome.

Son, Johnnie Lee Beck [08/08/1933 in Oklahoma - 10/23/1965 in Contra Costa county] is next to them. Daughter, Rosella and husband have the spaces next to him. Her husband has passed, but I believe she is still living. I have the photo for Johnnie, but will have to go back and get the space numbers and photo for Rosella's.

RE: Adeline Thorton Barnard
OK, neat. I had not noticed there was a page for Kenneth. If they had linked him to his parent's I would have noticed. I was going to send an edit to link Adeline to Wendell but you beat me to it. :-]
I found obits for all three of them if you are interested in seeing them.
Kenneth's is in transcribed version. Wendell and Adeline's obits download from my library as full pages of the paper in pdf format and their obits are on the pages. That is nice since you get the name of the paper and dates and page number and all that good stuff you need for documentation as to where the obit came from.
I would have to have your email address to be able to send them to you if you want them.

Please let me know if you would like me to transfer the two Barnards that you sent the updated information on in Lincoln Memorial.

RE: Adeline Thorton Barnard
I'll be darned. You are right. In the 12 years of doing this I have never run into this problem before. Makes sense that you can't request a picture of a gravestone if they are not listed as being in a cemetery or anywhere else.

Wendell Barnard
You put in a request for pictures of Wendell Barnard's grave here in Portland, Oregon, in Lincoln Memorial Cemetery.
Are you related to this guy?
His wife is buried next to him, Adeline. Her page shows as unknown burial.
I also discovered that their son Kenneth Barnard is buried in Wendell's grave. A lot of the times kids have their ashes interred in the same grave as a parent but I don't know in this case. I believe you can bury two caskets also in the same grave. Anyway, Kenneth is interred there also.
Do you want to make the page for Kenneth since nobody has ever made a page for him as yet? Oct. 17, 1919 to May 25, 2004 are his dates.
Could you do me a favor and put in a request for pics of Adeline's grave also? I will clean up her gravestone too so it looks nice when I go back up to the cemetery.
They are expecting snow here today so it will probably be a couple days or so before I get back up there. It won't be much snow and shouldn't be around for very long.
