Bio

Just your average retired man, looking for something to do to keep my mind active.

In 1981-1982, I researched, compiled and published a 306-page book on my ancestor Benjamin West from Penistone, Yorkshire, England.

In 1983, I helped research, compile and edit the Zion Mennonite Cemetery Records by Margaret Shetler. This cemetery is located east of Hubbard, Oregon in south Clackamas county. Updates for this cemetery are completed through 2022 as of FEB 2023. No publication will be printed...all information can be found on FIND A GRAVE for this cemetery.

Completed in 2019, my 1985-1986 research and compilation of the Hopewell Mennonite Cemetery in Hubbard OREGON, although I have found a 1998 compilation for this cemetery. Used this compilation to update and improved the FIND A GRAVE memorials.

In 2020 working on Pratum Cemetery near Salem OREGON. Finished working with the sexton of Nisley Cemetery in Goshen Indiana to update the plot numbers for all the interments since 1980.

February 2023 started working the Rock Creek Cemetery near Needy, OREGON. Working with my cousin, who is the acting sexton, and another GRAVER who is a neighbor to the cemetery, we are documenting each grave, linking to parents, adding biographical information, plot information including the GPS location of the gravestones, cross-referencing this back to the SEXTON's records. Finding death certificates, death notices and obituaries and also help from living family members, this cemetery is 'blossoming' with information about the early pioneers who settled around NEEDY.

Currently, I am researching my ancestor Peter Troyer hoping to compile and publish his family descendants.
