Bio and Links
Bio Photo I just had my 66th birthday, <-----updated 2013. I like genealogy,and the many visits to cemeteries that I have done in my research of family history. I love photography, and have thousands of photos on Flickr.com. I like true mysteries when they have some chance of being solved. Like right now I have a picture of a headstone for Owen Masterson, but I don't know where the headstone is. Someday I will find out I bet. Note Added a couple of hours later: I found it right away! I added two pictures to it. It was the 2nd name I looked for and I found both people's headstones within a couple of hours. How cool is that?
My thousands of photos I mentioned are not all of cemeteries and headstones. They include family, horses, dogs, cats, scenery, particularly waterfalls and woods, flowers, sunrises, sunsets, and nearly anything that is legal, interesting, pretty or all three.
I have a granddaughter, and I love her to pieces, as well as her mother, my daughter. I also have a son.
I like sightseeing, exploring old roads. I like Crime Shows, both the fictional and the true ones. I live in Oregon.

RE: Christina Wellsher
Many thanks for making the change. As far as I can tell, the grave marker is the only place where the name is spelled "Christena." Maybe you could change the name on the Find A Grave memorial but add a note to the effect that the name as inscribed on the stone differs from most other sources. It's too bad a family member can't be contacted to help resolve the mystery.

RE: Christena Wellsher
Hello:

In doing supplementary research on this person in connection with one of my memorials, I discovered that virtually every source used "Christina" except the headstone. You are right, of course, that errors creep into every place where the name is recorded (including grave markers), but in my opinion the preponderance of evidence in this case supports the use of Christina. As the memorial's manager you can examine the existing documentation and decide whether to change the spelling or keep it as is. I'm happy with whatever you decide. Many thanks!

RE: FindAGraveUser that is a BULLY
Thank you! My jaw totally dropped years ago on his first communication with me as I couldn't believe how rude, demanding & mean he was. I have never run into anyone on Find A Grave like him. Everyone else is so nice, helpful & appreciative of the volunteer hours I put in. He criticized that I didn't put "MRS" in front of a ladies name once because 'she deserves that' - even though it wasn't on the stone! He has criticized pictures, my not taking care of his edits fast enough, etc. And asked me 'to explain myself!" All in a mean tone & spirit! Your word is right - he definitely is a BULLY. I just am grateful I don't know him personally or related! Because of him I don't put my name or photo any longer on Find A Grave. Glad I am not overly sensitive & you feel the same way!

Reeves Cemetery, Re: Nancy Slagle
My mother was from the Slagle family line from Polk County, MO. Part of that family line travelled the Oregon trail in 1852 to Oregon.

This Nancy Slagle was married to a descendent from that line. I only wanted to post on this Nancy Slagle profile because so little is posted, but then if the originator of the profile is deceased it probably won't post. It was such a beautiful photo. Evelyn, Liberty, MO
