Bio and Links
Bio Photo We gladly transfer memorials to family and friends and, when asked, are happy to share photos with family members for personal, non-commercial use.

Please let us know of any corrections, additional information or transfer requests by using the new options under the [Edit] tab located in the top right corner of each memorial page.

Most edits can be done via their own link.

Use the sixth option for transfer requests.

We won't link our memorials to those listed without the correct disposition (Burial Unknown, for example) so please don't ask. There is a specific rule in the FAQ's about the use of Burial Unknown, please read it before using it.


Three members asked if we would manage their memorials in the Odd Fellows Cemetery and Masonic Memorial Park in Tumwater, WA., and Forest Memorial in Olympia, WA. That accounts for the difference in our added and managed numbers.

We are not related to anyone in these three cemeteries-just maintaining the memorials.

Jean Pennington
Thank You!
Dear Bill & Elaine, Thank You ever so much for signing so many of the Pennington & Grove family members to me! It was such a special surprise to Steve & me! We will be going there tomorrow & visit our families. I was so excited about letting Steve know! He had no idea there were so many family members buried there, from both sides of his family & they didn't even know each other. I called the office today & they are expecting us tomorrow. Thank you so much!!! Jean Pennington

RE: Prushey's - Done :)
Thanks for adding the extra info. Glad you like the photos. I'm not that happy with them as Anna's is wet and Thomas is sloped down from a tree root. I have a lot of transcribing to do in that section so I'll see if I can get better ones when I do that.

Take care.

RE: Ella (Prushey) Erickson
Excellent on Ella's husband. In regards to OTC and photos, I would say guess that maybe 85 to 90% of visible markers have been done by Liane and Kathy. But there are some sections that aren't totally done yet and I'm hoping to get to those this summer or over the next year or so. It's my passion but have to do them at my pace (old body). I'll call and see where Anna is and then see if I can find her as I'm going to go back probably this weekend to do some that I want to find that haven't been requested. If she's on one of the big hills, then they probably don't have one as Liane said she had done all the big hills. I'll let you know what I find out. Not need to request photo.

Kate Zink #70380478
Hi Elaine,
This memorial has me puzzled. I am so glad you contacted me about Sarah. I have researched this family quite extensively, however it appears I have overlooked several details. I am amazed at finding, just today, Thomas J Ireland's pension record applied for by Widow Sarah E Kate Zink. In the past, I have ordered pension records and found several affidavits had to be signed and notarized before the person could receive the pension benefits. I then located Rose M Ireland's Washington Death Notice indicating her mother was Kate Michael. Sarah's name was obviously Kate Michael. Why I did not catch that before is beyond me.

Again, thank you for correcting my error.

Manage 2 memorials
Good morning,
I wonder if you would consider taking over the management of two more memorials, one for an individual in Woodlawn Cemetery, Thurston Co., WA. and the other for his wife whose remains were donated to medical science. I have created a small number of memorials, but I am returning to work full-time and will not be able to manage them diligently. You may reply to this site, or e-mail me at Thank you.

Correction on name
May I have you make a correction on the name of Rose Plamer grave sit Find A Grave Memorial# 38293056.
Her mother's name was Marie Florine(D'Avignon)Gareau who married Fulgence Antoine Gareau and her name was Roselind De Lima Angélique(Gareau,Barry)Plamer. She was married to my grandfather Victor J. Barry then she married Bill Plamer. She was born 12 Jul 1896 in Connecticut.
I'd thank you for changing the information for her.

Rose Etta Stockham
Thank you, thank you for adding information and updating the memorial for my Rose Etta Stockham! I am most appreciative to see the family links and her complete name. I will send a small bio soon, which reviews her life and the tragedy of losing her first two children and first husband.

Thank you again!

Thank you so much for adding her parents. This makes the family more complete, not only for those searching, but makes me feel better as well. It is sad because she was so young, but you've assisted her and other researchers with your kindness by adding her information. My heartfelt thank you!
