You've done a marvelous write up for Sylvia and Florence. I've added a few pictures to them and their siblings. They're from the group photo in their father's memorial.

Thank you for sponsoring her memorial. I am not a relative either but I really like the marker. She was the wife of the first mayor of Syracuse and died much too young.

Gayle Lewis retired from California to Oregon in 1986. He attended Oregon State in Corvalis. He served in the Navy during WWII. He lived many years in Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
His Obituary does not list those people in his family that he outlived. It only lists three children and the existence of one grandchild. Their is no indication of any burial -- only that he wished for no ceremony.
They are sons Jack Arthur and Edmond Allen, both of Kirkland, Washington. His daughter was Pamela Lewis Cosgrove of Delaware.
Florence's father had two wives. With those two women they produced 17 children. Florence's mother Bertha Zimmerman had five of those children. Florence's full siblings were
Andrew Zimmerman Allen
Clarence Edward Allen
Sylvania Lucy Allen
Ora Theresa Allen

Hi Katie, I have info on his second wife that I'd be happy to share with you. Her maiden name was Bishop and she was a sister to my great grandmother, Eleanora. They were from Dawsonville, Ga. very close to Dahlonega. Contact me and I'll share what I have. Jane Harper

HAPPY TO REPORT NO RATTLESNAKES, THOUGH I WAS A BIT JUMPY WITH THE DRY GRASS MAKING NOISES IN THE HIGH WINDS. BEAUTIFUL DAY IN SUNDANCE WYOMING.
I POSTED SOME NEW PICTURES TO GO ALONG WITH SOME LEO HAD TAKEN, AND SOME THAT HAD NONE. I ALSO POSTED PICTURES OF THE HEADSTONES TOGETHER WITH A CAPTION OF WHO IS WHERE IF YOU OPEN UP THE PICTURE.
NOT SURE HOW THOMAS HARMON FITS IN BUT HE IS BURIED WITH JEAN AND SHIRLEY.
THERE WAS NOTHING LISTED FOR EITHER SUNDANCE CEMETERY FOR TRUMAN J. TIBBITS OR FRANCES (HARMON) TIBBITS. I ACTUALLY TALKED TO THE RECORD KEEPER FOR BOTH SO FAIRLY COMFORTABLE THAT THEY ARE NOT THERE.
130398389 DID FIND TRUMAN, HE IS BURIED IN IDAHO
HOPE THIS HELPS AND HAVE A GREAT EVENING.

Sorry Kathie. I have no knowledge of any of this family. I merely took photos of the cemetery and posted info. Would help if I could.

It's available through ancestry.com. Are you a subscriber? If not, you could also contact the area libraries and museums, as they often will have all the local yearbook annuals, though not online.

I know you are thrilled to get hot water back, Kathie! As many showers as I take a day, I'll go into panic mode if my hot water heater ever goes out.
I know how home maintenance goes. While my Craig was living, I never realized how much actually goes wrong. It seems like every week that dawns I have something else go haywire. Mercy!
It's a honor to place your grandfather on my featured veterans for BD and AD, so no thanks is necessary.
I never met my grandfather, Roy Savage. He had begged and begged my mother to bring me to him, but she had some petty grudge going on with him and Grandma Ella and refused. He passed away when I was 3 months old without ever getting to see me. My step-grandmother, Ella, always said that rebuffing his request broke his heart. I was his second grandchild, but first granddaughter.
Have a great first day of Spring tomorrow and a wonderful weekend. Headbonks to your kitties, love and huggles to you and Nan, Suse

Jeez, sweet Kathie, your 2016 sounds like my 2015. I had so much on my plate with one catastrophe after another that I ended up taking a 7 month LOA from the site.
Hoping all goes much better for you and Nan very soon. ❤
Thanks for your visits and loving sentiments you leave on my memorials. Love and huggles, Suse

Hi dear Kathie,
I'm so sorry to hear about your internet woes. It's so maddening when you don't have access. I was having some major issues for several weeks around here once I came back at the first of January from a 7 month LOA from the site. Finally, my ISP sent me a new wireless modem at no charge last month, which was pretty awesome in itself. Haven't had a single problem getting online since.
I'm so sorry, too, for the loss of your precious father. I'll be back to visit him again soon. My thoughts and prayers are with you. ❤
Thanks for your sweet sentiments you leave on my loved ones' memorials. Your words truly touch my heart.
Hope 2016 will bring fewer migraines. I have a younger brother who suffers from them and has most of his adult life. Sending many healing vibes your way! Much love and huggles, Suse

I just transferred another bunch of Kosiers. And, guess what? In doing the research, I found that Andy Kosier lived about 5 blocks from me on a street called Henrietta. I delivered newspapers on his street in the 1960s, so I was probably his paperboy!!! Now, ain't the world small? Tommy Wood

|EGF||RE: Marguerite (Alderson) Burkhart|
I was glad I was able to assist with correcting this very understandable error. What a coincidence that these "other" Aldersons were close by in Linn County. Maybe there's a family connection. It's worth looking into.
I locate and photograph death certificates at the State Archives in Salem for my Find A Grave memorials. I'd be more than happy to obtain and e-mail copies for you. Just send me a list with the names and dates of the deceased (prior to 1966) and I'll add them to my list for my next Archives visit in February.
When I was at the Archives last Friday I ran into Diana Greb and had a nice visit with her. She's a very nice person and she's doing terrific work with her death certificate project. She has imaged a truly mind-boggling number of dc's over the last five or more years. She's an inspiration.
For the record, I became aware of the discrepancy in the Alderson records when I created a Find A Grave memorial for Marguerite Burkhart's sister, Edith Ruth Alderson, who is entombed at Riverview Abbey Mausoleum in Portland. Once you've added the correct parent links to Marguerite's memorial page, you will see Edith's name in the sibling list. Marguerite is listed as one of Edith's survivors in her funeral notice.
Thanks for your nice note, and best wishes in your research.
Added by EGF on Jan 17, 2016 3:58 AM
|EGF||Marguerite (Alderson) Burkhart|
I've posted a copy of the death certificate to the memorial offering additional proof that her parents were Christopher and Mary (Royal) Alderson and not Thomas and Anna (McLeod) Alderson, as is currently indicated. I've also submitted an edit to correct the parent links.
It's possible that Thomas Alderson was a relative of Marguerite (an uncle, perhaps?), but he wasn't her father, as is clearly shown by multiple record sources.
