|Bio and Links|
I live in Oregon with my wife Loretta to whom I have been married to since 1978. My interest in genealogy started about 6 years ago and I am tracing my family tree. My great grandmother, Delia McNeal was a pioneer and a genealogist. It is important to honor those in your family from the past so they will not be forgotten. |

Hi Bill, you are welcome. I am not related. She is a Sister-in-law of spouse of brother-in-law of 1st cousin 2x removed. I go off on tangents making connections. LOL

More Than Welcome Bill, This Is One Almost Lost Cemetery. The More Information We Can Share The Better Chance Of Their Memories Living On. :)
|Twilight||Mary married a servant?|
I am not discounting the connections, I am just curious to know if there is a story to Mary North and her husband John Musgrave. I found a census image for Mary's mom Minerva North and it has John Musgrave listed as Servant. I find it interesting to see the daughter and the servant married. The Musgrave name is new to me; so I don't know a whole lot about this family line so I hope you can maybe shed some light on this.

Bill, I'm glad I found her. She was my first find and that cemetery almost defeated me! But now I've done it once, I'll do it again.
Sorry I couldn't get a clearer shot of the inscription. It is very foggy here today so the sun didn't help, and it is pretty eroded. When I'm back next year, if I can spend more time in the cemetery, I'll try to get a better look at it.

Instructions for using Picasa by Goggle
I do hope this answers alot of your questions.
The import button in Picasa is often the place to start. When I press mine I see another Picasa page that has an 'Import' tab at the top next of page and next to the 'Library' tab. Below this tab should be the bold letters... 'Import from' .... next to that is a 'drop down arrow'... press on the arrow....on my computer it shows my scanner, camera [if it is plugged in], or SD Cards that my camera stores images on [when they are plugged in to the computer]....select which device you want to use and press on it... it may start downloading all the pictures on the camera or SD Card. Wait until the down load is done and double click on the image you want to use or i the case of a printer it will ask if you are ready to scan an image into Picasa
When you import a picture into Picasa ... if you see a button [when you are using a scanner] that asks if you want to increase the image size of a small obit or photo image....2nd step after completing basic scan] press it and it will make the image much easier to read in Find A Grave...don't use that button when you do not want image to be enlarged.
the next step is to name a folder into which you want to place it... Folder title... I give each one it's own title using the surname first... example, Burrell, Martin S. df... notice I gave it two unique lower case letters [it could be anything.. a...b...c etc. These separate the photos into their own folder [three folders for the same person]. Later, I discard the folders I don't want after I placed the photo on Find A Grave. If I kept everything I would be keeping too much waste and overload my storage.... the next step.... click on... Import Selected .... button as see on the bottom right corner of page... caution you can't use button until a new folder name is installed with a unique name.... after the button has been pressed the image goes into a image storage area .... you can see the image you just worked with.... double click o it .... this allows you want to work on the image .... this page shows a much larger single image ..... look at the upper left section of the page... these are the control functions you can use to alter your image... they are crop, straighten, I'm feeling lucky, retouch, text, etc. .... it is here that you can do almost all of the work to fix a photo to be used on Find A Grave. Almost everything can be reversed. Example #1, to crop image press crop button and then move mouse over photo image to one corner where you want to start cropping and depress left mouse button and hold move mouse to oposite corner of cropping box and release mouse button. If your satisfied press the 'Apply' button. If you want to change one side... move the mouse to that side and grab the line with the mouse and move it until you like it. Or, you do not like cropping... press 'Cancel' button. Then try each button...play with them. Another button that is very important is the 'Reset' button. It allows you to fix or remove things like bird poop from a grave marker; remove blades of grass from a photo; words you do not like in an obit; dirt, ink spots or scratches from an old newspaper article. Start by pressing the 'Retouch' button then select the size of brush circle you want move it over a dirt spot and click on it and rlease. Then move mouse to another place with a clean background and click again. The program will take that clean spot and fillin the dirty spot. You can remove an ugly mole from Aunt Mollie's nose, ink splatter. or bird poop from grandpa grave marker. Or, press cancel and everything is right back where you first started. I have been known to spend 6 hours fixing one image full of ink splatter.... it was worth it.
It works wonders on newspaper obits...cleaning them up to look much better. Step 1 back a ways should have been the button....'Strenght'. You are looking at a cemetery grave marker and think why is it so crooked...terrible. Use this button as the first step in fixing your photo. Try it you will like it.

Please call the cemetery office and ask for the grave location. Photo requests cannot be fulfilled without Section, Range/Row and Lot numbers as cemetery is too big. Thank you!
