Bio and Links
I live in Whatcom Co, Washington, and have been actively doing genealogy since 1978. I became a FAG member shortly finding my 5th great-grandfather's gravestone photo and knew I had to create memorial pages and post the numerous photos and records that I had collected. Surnames of interest include Gilbert, Glover, Gowdy, Brown, Packard, Wakely and Jennings.

Additions and corrections to FAG Memorials: Please use the appropriate "edit" tab that can be accessed from each memorial page. If unsure, use the "Suggest any other correction or addition" tab.

Transfer requests: Using the "Suggest any other correction or addition" tab, please request a transfer of a Memorial according to the guidelines of FAG. I will not transfer Memorials for those I am directly related to. And DO NOT FORGET TO INCLUDE YOUR MEMBER #.

Obituaries: I will add obituaries to memorials only if you include a proper citation -- both the date and the name of the newspaper.

Photos: You have my permission to use any photo that I have taken and posted to a Memorial. Please remember to give my name and where you found the photo. Also note that I believe it is more important to capture the data on the headstone and provide the best possible photo. Please contact me should you desire a scenic photo of the area where the headstone is located.

I have additional records related to Abner Dunn which you will find interesting. His gravestone is in the State Archives office at WWU in Bellingham.

Please post the photo on Sallie Edythe Peeples
#5978679 to her sister Mary Emma Staton #5979630 as they share the same grave & the stone has both names on it.

Thank you for all your good work
