Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born & live in Central Washington State. I had thought that my family was small but that has not been the case. Genealogy has taken me places that I could never have imagined. My family line includes Kobernik, Daily/Dailey, Bishop, Krider/Crider, Monninger, Foutz, Southward/Southwood, Swearingen, Hainline/Hanlein, Miller/Mueller, Guy, Waggoner, Ralls, Hart, Drews/Drefs & Griep. My Kobernik line comes from Germany (now Poland) and the others mostly from Fulton Co, IL; PA; MD; & VA.
I enjoy working on my family but also helping others to locate their ancestors. In 2012 I took photos of most of the graves at Terrace Heights Memorial Park, Yakima, WA. (A few of the temps cannot be read).
Please let me know if anything needs to be corrected, transferred (if not my family) or removed. You have permission to use any grave stone that I have posted. Happy Genealogy Hunting!

Joan, it has been brought to my attention that the Sarah Curtis I edited as their mother is not the correct Sarah Curtis. I have sent new edits correcting this and removing her. I'm sorry for the mistake.

Thank-you for all the Great photos!!
Thank-you doesn't seem enough! I so appreciate the gravestone pictures you took of Charles Johnson Jr and wife Edna Johnson, and Woodrow Smith Sr, and Woody Jr. You always add such a nice clear close-up of the names/dates, and show the proximity of the graves. I didn't realize Woody Jr. was so close to his grandparents. It's like I got to visit the gravesite myself. Your volunteer time in going to the cemetery, finding and photographing the graves, and adding them all to their memorials is truly appreciated!. May Karma treat you royally!
Thank-you! LaVon Yuill

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the wonderful photos of the full grave and the individual headstone photos.
Their daughter, Lora Lee (Dawson) Mowrey is my aunt.

I have been waiting so long for where they were buried and the photos of the headstones.

Your time and volunteer service to help others is greatly appreciated.

(They are the mother and father in-law of my uncle Kenneth Mowrey)
