Bio Photo April 11, 2014:

Historic Oregon Newspapers has added more newspapers. Today there are 100. Check out this site:)

*There is a new modification/feature on FindAGrave that I've just discovered by accident and that FindAGrave did not individually notify contributors about. Please check out this feature because when it works, it is a great feature:)

Go to the FindAGrave website at this link for their directions and "read everything" under "Editing and Correcting Memorial Information".

and also look under this title in the directions: "What if I suggest a correction and the contributor doesn't respond?"

On another subject:
*Recently I received an email from another contributor who told me of finding stories in Hawaiian newspapers for his relative on the Library of Congress - Chronicling America - Historic American Newspapers website. His relative was my memorial in Oahu Cemetery in Honolulu. So I searched the Library of Congress website and found numerous articles for his relative in newspapers in Hawaii and I also found numerous articles in Tennessee newspapers where I am working on a family tree for a friend. Here is the link to the Library of Congress site:

July 14, 2013:
I am currently working on a project that you might be interested in. I am searching Historic Oregon Newspapers and the Grant County News (in particular), Canyon City, Oregon (1879-1908) online for marriages, births, deaths/obits, and stories of interest and putting them on FindAGrave memorials and sometimes creating new memorials. These old newspapers are frequently difficult to read and therefore the news clips may be difficult, but not impossible, to read. I don't have time to attempt to Photoshop them to make them easier to read but I wouldn't put them on the memorials if they weren't readable. There are approximately 50 newspapers on this website (70 newspapers as of July 2013 so 20 more have been added) and they seemed to share news stories probably because some of the newspapers were owned by the same person. There is so much history "hiding" in these old newspapers - you would be amazed! If you want to search yourself - go to this link:

"The Historical Oregonian (newspaper) 1861-1987" is also a good place to search and is free "if" you live in Clackamas, Washington, or Multnomah Counties in Oregon. You have to go to the Multnomah County Library website and sign up. Or you can request a librarian do a search for you or you may need to get a library card to sign up.

Here is a link to the California Digital Newspaper Collection which is free but you have to sign up:

Please DON'T use the Virtual Flowers feature to post corrections as I get no notice when a VF is posted and therefore can't add or make corrections. Use the VFs only for tributes and condolences as per F.A.G. guidelines.


When you photograph in a cemetery, please take photos of the cemetery entrance and a picturesque view(s) of the cemetery in the event the home page for the cemetery does not have a photo(s) of the cemetery. Then you can post your photo(s) to the home page. ALSO, please don't take photos looking down on a headstone unless there is engraving on top of the headstone. If possible, squat to take a photo as it will be a much better photo.

I am willing to consider transfering ownership to you if you have a family member among my records. PLEASE use the "Edit" tab on the memorial you want transferred and then "Suggest any other correction…". This is the "correct way" to request a transfer. I may not transfer to you if the number of memorials that you manage is significantly greater than the number that you have contributed OR if you are only working on your own family and not contributing to the FAG community as a whole.

NOTICE: If you want to use any of my photos that I have posted on FAG you are welcome to do so as long as it is for genealogical research and is neither immoral or illegal!

I liked going to cemeteries as a child, looking at headstones and listening to my relatives talk about deceased family members. Most years, I went with my grandparents, Arch and Manila Jones, to the Monument Cemetery, Grant County, Oregon which was a weed patch except for Memorial Day when family would get together and bring flowers and clean off the graves and visit.

I hope to help others by posting memorials and photos of pioneer cemeteries in Central and Eastern Oregon and the Willamette Valley, Oregon.

Hi, In case you don't get the usual notification, I added the picture you requested for Patrick Foley in L.I.N.C. I also added a picture and link to his wife Mary buried next to him.
Have a good one...Glenn

John Ray b Aug. 6, 1765
Do you mind saying where you found the exact birthdate for John Ray? The date you give is certainly right, because the Warren County KY US Census for 1810 has him born between 1765 and 1784. But I have studied John Ray and his family for years, and have never seen an exact date before. Please share!

Frank "Fritz" Fleischman
Pam, this I believe is Julia Fleischman's nephew. "Fritz" would be the son of Julia's brother Frank, making this her nephew.The families were living in Canyon City, OR. I have a photo of the Hose Team (formed to fight fires) with a young Henry Clay and a Frank Fleischman among its members.
Will look into this further and I want to thank you so much for such a professional page of his information. I will request a photo.
I will provide the info on Julia's son (yougest) Stanford Todhunter . I have wonderful pictures of he and his wife Doris, their 3 daughters etc. Will follow up with you on this as able...still not moving forward on Mary Elizabeth Oliver and John/Jasper.
Can we agree that Fleischman is the correct spelling?
Maybe, there was an error with the name of "Sarah" as the name of Frank Todhunter's wife. It was Alice and that is what is on their grave stone.

Goldie Evans.
I am so sorry I did not receive this email from you. But, I linked Goldie to her parents.

Thank you for you understanding. I take this very serious and I always do updates within a couple of days after I verify the info.

Blessings Jo

In my first email to you, I sent you Goldie's parents' names and their memorial
#s and asked you to link her to them. Here are their names and memorial #s
again. Please use these #s to link Goldie to her parents. Thanks:)

Henry Clay Todhunter
The following is the information I've obtained re the Todhunter family. My father was Ashford William Todhunter.
These are the children of Henry Clay and Julia Todhunter:
Laura 1882-1891
Frank 1883-1941
Walter 1885-1906
Agnes 1888-1972
Blanche 1889-1974
Henry Clay Jr. 1896-1946
Grace 1898-1991
Ashford 1902-1982
Stanford 1903-1986

I've added a photo of Henry and Julia. Henry was the son of John and Mary Elizabeth (Jouett). The man found guilty of John's murder lived out his life in San Quentin Prison. That would be William Williams. His widow Mary remarried and lived the rest of her life, remarried in Seattle, WA.Henry, my grandfather was involved in many professions over the years. He passed away before I was born.

RE: Hugh McLeod

You are welcome. It is sad to see how their markers have shifted. The cemetery is on a steep hill and many of the markers have fallen over.--Storres

Their suggestion:
Goldie's parents' names do not have the actual links to them. Would you mind
adding those? Thanks so much:)

As of today I did not find any memorials for the parents. Blessings Jo
