Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am Betty Smith Romick Boustead. I am retired. I was born in Des Moines, Iowa. Graduated from East High in June 1950. I married Charles Earl Romick and moved to Bremerton, Wasnington in 1975. We had 5 children. My husband C.Earl died in 1988.

I met Douglas Boustead in 1993 and married him in 1996. I have 3 step-children. Lots of grandchildren and gr. grandchildren including step-grandchildren.

I lost my husband Douglas last November 20,2012. He was cremated and buried in Miller-Woodlawn Cemetery in Kitsap County, Bremerton, WA. I now live in Kennewick. WA. with my daughter.

I enjoy exploring the Find A Grave and adding flowers and messages to them. And finding new friends along the way.
I enjoy placing flowers on as many memorials as possible. Everyone needs to be remembered.

If you find relatives that I have entered and you are a Find A Grave member and would like for me to transfer a memorial page of that person I will be more then happy to do that. It is good to keep families together.

RE: Beverly May Harker
What will happen to the memorials that I created after I pass on? Can I set up a caretaker or steward to preside over the memorials that I created? What is the process?

Right now, you can email if you have someone who has accepted stewardship (usually a family member) over the memorials you added. Please send in their member number. We will add a note to your member page stating the identity of the steward. You can have them email in after your passing and we will make sure that they have access to update the memorials.
If you do not have a steward, then the management of your memorials may be passed on to close family members of the memorials that you have created. The family members can email the memorial numbers in (no more than five at a time) along with their close relationship to the deceased and their member number, asking for a transfer of management.

Are you taking over her memorials? Have you let Find A Grave know she has passed away? They like to know it.

I was sorry to hear of your sister's passing. I have interacted with her on some of the Find A Grave posts for some time. Then learning we had several mutual friends not on Find A Grave. She will be missed.

Mary Luella Romick Dates?
Hello Betty,

This is a little out of the blue, but I wanted to contact you to clear up a little mystery and authentication issue I've run into. In trying to authenticate a set of journals written by a Mary Selzer of Des Moines from 1909 to 1918, I've come across a reference to a Miss Luella Romick who was buried in Evergreen Cemetery in 1912. She may have been a friend of Ms. Selzer's, I'm not sure, but she speaks fondly of her and talks about a few details of her service, namely that they were performed in part by a Mr. Younge. My question is however, Mary Selzer wrote about these services on April 23, 1912 - incidentally in a journal entry directly following one detailing the events of the Titanic disaster one week before, hence my interest in authenticating these journals. She states clearly that Miss Romick died on the 20th of April at the age of 32. Is it possible that the date of death on Miss Romick's stone is incorrect in saying she died in November? I can send photos of the page in question if you like.

Thank you for your time,

Will Kindler

RE: James Vernon and Joanna Tinsley
I don't see anything that resembles proof--just that somebody said it. In all the years I have researched James and Anna, I have never seen anybody document their dates or their birth places.

The b est I can say is James died between 13 Dec. 1825 when he sold land to his son, Nehemiah, and
2 Nov. 1829. when an advertisement was written advertising a proposed settlement The ad was published on 9 December 1829.

I would be interested if anyone could prove Anna died in Jefferson County as that is the year James moved to Indiana. The best I can say is there is no older female in his household in 1820.

I would be skeptical of Lunenburg County as it exists today as a birth place. The Vernon family in general is said to be associated with the Cub Creek Quaker meeting. That is in neighboring Charlotte County, which was carved from Lunenburg in 1756. But this is all a guess since the Vernon family in general was in this area.

I see a bunch of Family trees on Ancestry that give his birth as 1745 in Lunenburg and his death as 1829 in Jefferson. Some call him James Richard. It looks like they have generally copied from each other.

Many have "sources" but most of these are only general records that prove nothing

I remain to be convinced.

James and Anna Tinsley Vernon
I am curious as to the sources of birth and death dates for James and Anna Tinsley Vernon and any authority placing James' birthplace specifically in Lunenburg County.

Hiram Baker, Lean V. Baker
Hi! I'm just getting ready to post gravestone photos for Hiram Baker and Lean V. Baker from Canby Cemetery. I wanted to let you know that there seems be some disagreement about dates involving them. For Hiram Baker, the Find A Grave listing says 1870-1914. The listing at the entrance of Canby Cemetery says 1872-1918. But the stone seems to say October 13, 1870-September 5,1913. Regarding Lean V. Baker, the Find A Grave listing has her name as LeeAnn, but both the cemetery listing and the stone spell it Lean V. Baker. And regarding dates, the Find a Grave listing says 1876-1911, the cemetery listing says 1878-1911, and the stone seems to say July 24, 1878-January 22, 1911. It doesn't show up well in the photos because the stones are rather worn, but their first names are on the angled tops of the stones.

Hope this helps!
