Bio and Links
I am a Canadian American, with extensive family in both countries. My ancestry in both countries extends back to the early 17th century (and in Canada I also have a native ancestry, which extends back to pre-history).

My mothers family is almost exclusively English in ancestry (with a little French, Dutch and Spanish about 400 years ago). My fathers side is Scots, English and Native American (Swampy Cree from Manitoba).

I have one direct ancestor, my 3rd Great Grandfather on the Maternal side, Wait Wright, who qualifies me for membership in the "Sons of the American Revolution", and in the "United Empire Loyalists", because he fought on BOTH sides during the American Revolution.

My primary family lines are Wright, Cooke/Cook, Penfield, Green, Wanton, Burrows, Rogers, and a lot more in the USA.

In Canada they are Stewart,Thompson, Moore, Peers in Nova Scotia; and Black, Foulds, Johnston in Manitoba, and Wright/Provorse in Ontario. My father was an illegal alien in the USA, which gave all of his children both US and Canadian citizenship.

My Wright's fought on BOTH sides in the American Revolution. My Peers and Teeds were Loyalists who went to Nova Scotia after the Revolution.

My Cook's, Greene's and several other families fought strictly on the American side.

My family has served in every war that this country has been involved it. It was strictly Union during the Civil War (nobody went South till the 20th Century). I lost cousins in the American Revolution, The War of 1812, The Mexican War, the Civil War, the Indian Campaigns, The First and 2nd World Wars, Korean and in Vietnam.

I also lost cousins from Canada in the American Revolution, the War of 1812, in World War I and World War II, as well as in Korea.

You might say that I come from an almost prototypical American family.

RE: Photo Request
You are very welcome. I'm sorry it's such a strange looking photo but the stone faces away from the sun and makes it hard to read. I took one of the pics on a slant trying to get the wording. Hope it works for you. Jane

RE: Truman Adonis Williams
Sorry that I do not know where Don Williams is buried. I left a few memorial flowers on his page as I try to do for all family members. Have not had as much time lately to do all the visiting to these memorials. I do try to do a few every day. I hope you every your weekend.

RE: Stewart - Elmwood Cemetery
There was a stone nearby with only the name CHESLYN. Does this name mean something?

Stewart - Elmwood Cemetery
We searched Section 10 Grave #114 and the only marker we could locate was for John Hector Stewart. It was completely covered with sod.

Hi...there is an online genealogy request form... or you can call the office...their index cards usually tell death date, cause of death, church and funeral home...surprisingly not birthdates...hope that helps

James O. and Minerva (Cook) Elrod
Today I posted photos to your memorials for James Orville Cook and Minerva (Cook) Elrod, who are buried in Riverview Cemetery, Portland, Oregon. You will note that Minerva's year of birth is given as 1875 on her grave marker.

RE: Thank you
Note I added memorials for other Burrow family members who had stones in that family plot. One was named John A Burrows -- died in infancy.

RE: Truman Williams

I am not related. My granddaughter is by marriage on her father's side. I was doing family history. I left a candle on his death date as I try to do for many that are related to my family in some way.

If there is a issue with this please let me know why.

RE: Octavia Conley
You are so welcome! What do you think about the picture of the tree covering her headstone? I placed it on their memorial pages so the family can contact the cemetery and have it cut back. I found so many Conley headstones and was determined to locate Octavia. Trying to hold the tree branches back and take a picture was a little tricky to say the least but was well worth the struggle!! Enjoy! Sherri
