Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an avid amateur genealogist, researching many different lines for both family and friends. I include all collateral lines, so my area of interest is extensive.

I have added many memorials in the hope of helping a fellow researcher. Permission is granted for personal use of any of the photos I have added, please just cite the F.A.G. memorial number giving me credit for having taken them.

I decline to give permission to use my photos for resale, for profit, or to upload to a different web site. Do not copy them to other grave related sites such as


I will transfer ownership of memorials to family members provided the memorial is unrelated to my own genealogy research.

*** PLEASE send edit requests, transfer requests, or any other message about a memorial from the edit link on the memorial. The easier you make it for me, the more quickly I will attend to your request. Please include your FAG member number so I can give the source of added data. ***

Our greatest treasure is our family, not only the warm circle around the Christmas tree, but all those whose lives gave us life, and those who will carry our love into the future. ~ Anonymous

It avails not, neither time or place—distance avails not;
I am with you, you men and women of a generation, or ever so
many generations hence;
I project myself—also I return—I am with you, and know how it is.

Just as you feel when you look on the river and sky, so I felt;
Just as any of you is one of a living crowd, I was one of a crowd;
Just as you are refresh'd by the gladness of the river and the bright flow,
I was refresh'd... ~ "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry" by Walt Whitman

Perform, then, this one act of remembrance before this Day passes - Remember there is an army of defense and advance that never dies and never surrenders, but is increasingly recruited from the eternal sources of the American spirit and from the generations of American youth. -W.J. Cameron

For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity. ~William Penn

Those we hold closest to our hearts never truly leave us. They live on in the kindness they have shared and the love they brought into our lives. -Author Unknown

Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy. -Anonymous

Thomas & Bertha Gatzman
Thomas is buried next to Bertha. Would you like him transferred to you. I am sorry to say they have no markers. I added the cemetery's plot map along with a photo of their grave site.

My great grandparents and uncles are buried here. I got to go there on a solo road trip! I was surprised to see your name too in Wilsonville!

Memorial 7818387 Fred McMillian
You left a correction note on this memorial when the previous unavailable volunteer owned it. I have updated the memorial so you can remove the correction in the flower section now.
Thanks, Eileen

Dexter Family
I have transferred the Dexter Family to you. You can add the updates and corrections. Like you, I enter them to help other genealogist with their family research. I also work full time so it is a relief to transfer non-family memorials to others who have time to keep them updated.
Thank you and keep up the good work.
