RE: Dyson at Elmwood
Hi Denise, thx for your kind words. So, it appears that there are 7 Dyson family members, all interred at this one plot, including David John. Regrettably, only 2 members are shown on the headstone. I 'poked' around in the hopes of finding ground markers to no avail. I also checked the Elmwood database in the event of a findagrave error, but the database shows the same location plot for all Dyson family members. I've provided a link to the database for interest. Hope this clarifies a bit more. Perhaps contacting the office at Elmwood to inquire if a ground marker exists might shed some light, but I'm pretty sure none exist. Cheers Jim

Dyson at Elmwood
Hi Denise, I noticed your last request for David Dyson and comment on the pic not being there after being notified. I'm the one who posted this and cannot explain why the photo is not there for David. I also posted yesterday a pic for David Wesley Dyson and Evelyn and it showed up. Anyway, I wanted just to drop you a note as I'm about to repost and if it doesn't show, let me know. I've experienced a few other anomalies like pic appearing sideways to some users , yet appears perfect to me. So, sorry for the troubles. I should also say that this plot has a few (3+) individuals interred at this plot, but no ground markers. I checked the area. Cheers Jim

RE: Lindamood in Crown Hill Cemetery
Hi Denise,
I'm glad you actually read my bio. Not many do before asking volunteers for photos. I added most of my photos to memorials but ran out of steam. As my bio says, I have all the photos for every memorial I have created.
I posted them on Find A Grave for you. If you want the originals, I can email them to you. Send me an email address if you are interested.

Thanks for taking a picture of the area my grandfather, Cecil Vyvian Stevens was buried. It means a lot to me.

Mildred Wellbaum
You sent an edit to make some additions to Mildred Wellbaum's page. You put that Mildred died in Aurora, OR. I have to assume you got that from the Soc Sec death index. That is the only place I can find that detail.
I declined this request for that edit.
Did you know that the Soc Sec death index only says where the last place somebody LIVED was. It never says where somebody DIED. Often times people die in the same town they last lived in but not always by any stretch of the imagination.
I don't know why I cannot find her in the State of OR death index. I checked other states and don't find here there either.
I searched for her as every single person named Mildred who died in the state of OR in 1986 and there is nothing anywhere even remotely close to the name of Wellbaum. I checked for the name Mildred who died April 29, 1986 and there was only one single Mildred who died on that day and it was a Mildred Eve Moore. You don't know if that could be her? I kind of doubt it myself.
I looked her up in the cemetery index and that is where I got the date of her death from.
I looked her up in the Canby Herald newspaper index and it did not do that before when I made her page. That index says she died in Flora, IL., and that she died in Oregon City. A lot of people who lived near Canby, (Canby is right next to Aurora) were sent to Oregon City Hospital for illnesses for treatment and did not get better and died there. That is my best guess as to why Mildred died there unless she just went there to visit somebody or went there shopping or whatever.
There is an obit for her in the Canby Herald newspaper but I don't have access to that paper itself, just the index. The obit was in that paper May 7, 1986, page 5.
It still makes me real curious why Mildred is not in the OR death index. There are an awful lot of mistakes in the OR death index though.

Thanks very much Denise. I assume there is not a headstone. Is that correct?

Thank You Denise!
I so appreciate you, No one knew where my Grandfather was laid to rest until today, thank you so very much. My Grandfather Albert M. Smith died in 1956 I learned that he may have died in New Jersey through SSI records like 10 years ago.. (Didn't know if I had the right Albert Smith) So tonight I got on Find A Grave and found him, only because you had taken the time to upload a picture of his grave spot, which has no grave marking at all, no stone? Thank You from the bottom of my heart, Thank You Karen Holmes

RE: Hamiota
I appreciate your not doing multiple multiple edits in a day. I get at least 100 edits a day as it is. It's turning out to be a full time job. When I did the memorials I had visions of family finding them. I was not prepared for all the people who are not family who do edits.

Happy New Year!

RE: Sarah Burke
I am originally from Glenburn and have been to the cemetery many times. I have photographed the entire cemetery and added the photos to Find A Grave, and there is not a marker for her. I added her memorial, and several others, from old Glenburn newspaper clippings from the microfilm library at the ND Historical Society library. Someday I am going to find out who has burial records for the cemetery to see if I can find out the locations of some of these unmarked graves.

Best regards,

Right after I sent the message I saw that you had linked both husbands.

Thank you!

You asked to edit her last name to Vance-Kirk.

If she was married twice, I would link her to her husbands. Her marker has Vance as a last name. According to Find A Grave guidelines, the last name on the memorial should be what is on her marker.

Best wishes,
judy :)
