Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, I'm Katie! I live in Lyons, Oregon. I love everything history related, especially old cemeteries, houses, barns, books and photos.

I work full-time and am mom to a teen, tween, and a busy toddler. Please be patient with me! I will get to edits as soon as I can, but am unfortunately not able to process them every day.

My own family names includes the surnames Baptiste, Reid, Bennett, Bales, Fiester, Densford, and Hampton. I am also researching my husband and children's lines, including the surnames Garrison, Follis, Kirsch, Phillips, Mitchell, and Imlah.

I collect antique photographs, particularly those with names on them, and try to match them up with other researchers on Find a Grave or It's so much fun to unexpectedly add something to someone else's search and I hope someday karma will return the favor!

On memorials I manage, if myself or my son (Reid) are related I have stated our relationship in the notes section. I would be happy to transfer all others to a member of their family. Please request the transfer through the edit tab and state your relation.

If I add information to a non-related memorial, I state my source. If no source is given, info is from edits from other contributors. Any and all information that I have is already listed on the memorial.

Please feel free to use any gravestone photos that I have posted for your personal genealogical use.

Re. Birthdate for Alice Emerine Oliver
Regarding the birthdate on the tombstone of Alice Emerine Porter in the Mountain View Cemetery in Walla Walla, Washington:

The tombstone does indeed read "1882," but Alice Porter's correct birthdate is 1862, not 1882. The tombstone is incorrect. I am Alice Porter's great-granddaughter, and heard the story many times from my grandmother and Alice's only child, Wilma Porter Yoder, about the distress this caused the family, and their efforts to make the stone mason correct his error.

Perhaps a note could be added? I would be willing to take over this listing, if she is not your family member.

Thank you very much, Katie, for your work!

Charles Fiester
I do not remember where I found the reference as to where he was buried. Yes, I am related; I have worked quite a bit on the Fiester family tree.

Another transfer please.
Could you also transfer the memorial for Glenn W. Harvey #119186992 to me. He is another relative of my husbands. Apparently he was adopted which makes links very difficult. Hoping you will transfer his memorial to me so I can link him to both his biological parents and his adoptive father. Thanks for creating his memorial and for considering my request for a transfer. My contributor number is: 47142793.

Transfer please.
I cannot send "other" edits since I have sent out so many that Find A Grave's system thinks I am a robot so I hope you won't mind me leaving a transfer request here. Would you consider transfering the memorial for Seba L. Harvey #119187642 to me. She was married to my husband's great uncle and I have more info., links etc. that I would love to add to her memorial. Hope to hear from you soon. My contributor numer is #47142793.
