|Bio and Links|
Hi, I'm Katie! I'm 32 and live in Lyons, Oregon. I love everything history related, especially old cemeteries, houses, barns, books and photos.|
I work full-time and am stepmom to two teens and mommy to a feisty 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 Ancestry.com. It's so much fun to unexpectedly add something to someone else's search and I hope someday the favor will be returned!
I transcribed several cemeteries in the Silverton and Gervais areas in 2002-2003. I have also used Ancestry.com to find additional information about these people. 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.

Thanks so much for creating the memorial for my brother-in-law "Oliver Thomas Harvey"
I'm wondering if you are a related to Oliver. Oliver was my oldest sister 1st husband.
If you are not relation, would you mind transferring to me.
Thanks so much,

Thank you for the transfer of my cousin's memorial!
|Lynn Della||Wrong name|
Hi, Katie. I am writing regarding Find A Grave Memorial #111910377, which you added in 2013. The name of the decedent (according to the gravestone and family history) is Jacqueline June Needham but the spelling on the record is Jackyline. Would you please change it so it is correct?
Just curious -- are you a relation (and, if so, how?) or just a helpful Find A Grave person? Ms. Needham would have been my mother's first cousin.
|Edgar Bryant||Mountain View Cemetery|
I noticed you posted Ella Bryant on Find a Grave.
My great uncle George Washington Bryant was buried there in 1930 Do you have any information about him that could share with me. He was born in Cleveland county in 1868. any information would be greatfully appreciated. Edgar Bryant
|Valerie Schmelzer||FAG #125284494|
I have been researching my family for many years and having very hard time with locating my great uncle Herman Schmelzer. The above noted memorial could possibly be a clue. Is there any further information you have on this memorial. Or any suggestions where I could get more info.

|Carol Harmon||Florence Dawson|
At the Silverton Cemetery you have a memorial for Florence Dawson. I have been trying to locate a Florence Dawson b. in Michigan about the same year , 1890 who just kind of disappeared after the 1900 census while living with her uncle's family in Douglas Co. Oregon. Are you related to this Florence in your memorial? She left Michigan with her mother who had divorced because of bad abuse by the husband and were kind of hiding from him. So if you are related to her somehow,
would you let me know?
|Marcie Clark||Masonic Cemetery Gervais|
Hi there. I am now the full time caretaker at the Gervais cemetary and I wanted you to know just how much your research has helped us in our work there. You have listed headstones that were no longer visible and with your records we have been able to find 8 out of 14 unaccounted for. We have also found a couple that are not on your record. Would you like pictures of the headstone? I can send them to you if you want them.
Sincerely, Marcie Clark

Good day Katie,
This is a missing link in my family's lineage. I would be very grateful if you would transfer them to my care. They will be looked after with the same vigilance that you have given them. Family belongs with family.
