I am updating the Family history and I absolutely love this site. It is a wonderful way to honour those that have gone before. I appreciate all feedback or corrections to the Memorials that I maintain, and I would add that I will transfer the management of Memorials if the request falls within the Find a Grave guidelines *(Within Reason!) I believe that Family should have Family. ONE PET PEEVE: I heartily dislike it when I take the time and trouble to research vital information and others will not post this information in the proper areas on the Memorials. I would NOT offer information without first checking its veracity. I take an enormous amount of pride in making these Memorials as accurate and concise as I possibly can, and that goes for Memorials that I do not manage as well. I also appreciate beauty, and pictures and documents in my opinion only add to the aesthetics of the Memorials. This site and its mission have become very important to me, and I hope that my contributions reflect that sentiment.
Blessed Be. _________________________________________________
Note* I do not list living Children or Relatives on Memorials unless it is part of a genuine, published Obituary.
Special Note* It is my intention to turn these Memorials over to someone I can trust should I be unable in the future to care for them. Please do not freeze this account.
Samuel R. Dunlap Oops, I meant John Dunlap, not Thomas Dunlap. FYI, I'm married to a Dunlap and am trying to get the timing right for James Carnachan Dunlap cuz she is of that lineage, and am trying to establish the Irish and Scottish lineages, and it's tough going.
RE: The Doyle's in The Dalles Hi again, Your GGGGF Abel had 2 children with Mary Ellen Doyle...William and Harold. He had 3-4 children with Sally Sarah Lyle (his first marriage). So do you descend from the marriage with Sallie Sarah OR Mary Ellen. Just wondering if we may be cousins ?? Have a great day!! Patty Doyle Hughes
The Doyle's in The Dalles Hi, I see that you manage a number of Doyle memorials in The Dalles in Oregon. Michael Doyle (b. 1842 d. 1907) shared a common grandfather. His grandfather, my 4th GGF. Wondering if you are related. Patty Doyle Hughes
Gladys Marie Eakin I was browsing around a newspaper database (now I can't remember if it was my new subscription to newspapers.com or the free one called Historic Oregon Newspapers]. The Eugene Guard, 28 Aug 1918, page 3: "Child is Adopted - Papers were issued on Tuesday to Annie A. Ames legalizing the adoption of Gladys Marie Eakin, the daughter of Mrs. Margaret Savage. The mother filed her consent to the adoption and the child is now named Gladys Ames." Even though it doesn't look like she stayed with the Ames family, I'm so happy to see her on findagrave looking like she had a good life. I can't imagine what transpired to cause Margaret to give up her child after she married Jesse Lee Savage (my grandfather's brother). -Jackie
