I was born Ella Jane Allison, in Aberdeen, WA, raised on the George Allison family farm on Frost Rd., Lewis Co., WA, moved to Moses Lake, WA where I graduated from High School. Attended WSU, married, had a family, worked and now retired.
My Aunt Nettie Allison Bickell got me interested in Family research and history and I have been a addict for about 20 years.
My Gt. Grandparents who settled their donation land claim on Cowlitz Prarie both came over the Oregon Trail.
Brumbach-heistand Hi, Jayne I noticed you mentioned that Maria was your 5th great grandmother on her Find A Grave Memorial. My family tree also shows her as my 5th great grandmother as well. I follow the Garman and Priest line from Ohio.
Matilda Beckum Decious Hi, Jayne. Her date of death is mistyped--should be 1839, not 1939. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=decious&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GSsr=41&GRid=73753170&df=all&
Salmon Creek Cemetery Thanks for the recent e.mail about the Salmon Creek Cemetery near Vancouver, Washington. I have transferred all of the sites that we entered for this cemetery. My son, Patrick Melroy, once worked as the Youth Director for the Salmon Creek Methodist Church. I trust you will take good care of this cemetery's Find.a.Grave people. Kay Douglass
Della L Limonyain Hamilton I just noted that you recently added her memorial #125801311 in Salmon Creek. What is the possiblity that is the same Della Hamilton listed in St Johns Cemetery #320999932, with a grave marker, with identical vital dates. The information that you added to her bio is taken from her Washington Death Certificate. We have a Della Hamilton, b. 1849 either Ohio or NY, married to a Charles E Hamilton (1861-1953) and I haven't been able to find her parents with the names provided in her Death Certificate. Our Charles and Della were in the 1910 Pollock, Clark County, WA US Census. Charles apparently remarried in 1920, suggesting that Della died between 1910 and 1920. Do you have anything to add to this?
Sarah McGuire Stotts Kennedy Hello Jayne, I just e mailed you also. Thanks so much for linking Sarah to her parents Solomon McGuire and Susannah Garrett McGuire. It has been a long research project to find all the information that confirms the children that were born to Solomon and Susannah. A total of 7 in all, that lived past infancy. I am now working on completing the last daughter Cassanna (4 oldest child,in my research.) This week I have found more information, to be added to ancestry. Find a Grave is and added research blessing for all of us.
George Bickell Hello, went to Old Union Cemetery in Dundas, Ontario today. There is really almost nothing left. There is a cairn which has been boarded up on all sides so there is nothing to be seen, and then the memorial I put on George's page. The grass is completely smooth over the rest of the area, you can't tell if/where the graves were.
I looked at every stone that was used to put together the memorial, and George's isn't there. His must have been in such rough shape that it could not be used.
I have no idea why they placed the memorial where they did. I'm not sure if you can tell from the picture, but it's maybe 2 feet from the edge of the ravine. I was holding onto those bars tightly when I was checking the stones on that side!
