Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please feel free to use any of the information I have posted on this website including photographs.

I will transfer memorials to anyone with a closer relationship or greater interest in any of the memorials that I manage. I appreciate receiving corrections and information which I'm happy to add.

If you have photos related to any of these memorials, please add them - and drop me a line to let me know - as far as I can tell, findagrave doesn't have a feature to let you know when someone has added anything to a memorial you manage, it would be nice if they did.

I'm interested in many families including: Speckman, Brogan, Smith - all from Ireland; Hake originally Höck from Germany; Spaulding, Beach, Doolittle and Prescott along with many other early New England families and Icelanders in and out of Iceland.

RE: Alfred A. Bynon
You're very welcome. His birthdate is probably correct. Death records are often inaccurate depending who was giving information at the time it was filled out. The date and year were correct, they were just a month off on the month which was just probably a miscalculation on their part. I also found his wife's death record in the register and put in an edit for it. Not sure if you are familiar with the change findagrave made on edits last year. If you check your bio page, and click on the edit tab in the upper right hand area, you will see the edit for her and can accept it from there. Chris

Alfred A. Bynon
I was going through an old online death register for Orange County CA 1904-1918 Reg Vol 2 and noted an death entry for Alfred A. Bynon of Feb 12 1906 born in Canada. Age at time of death 76 yrs, 9 mos, 2 dys. This conflicts with the information you have on his memorial. However, if you figure the birthdate from this death date it matches except being off by 1 month. Something to think about. Hope this information is helpful to you. Chris

RE: Frank Plympton Young
You're welcome. Thanks for taking care of them.
Somebody put in a request for pictures of Frank's grave. That is when I noticed the death date you entered so I checked into it to make sure what was right.
The cemetery will only allow me a very few requests for grave locations per week so I do some checking on people's requests to try and ensure I don't waste one of my requests on info that is in error.
I will be getting a picture of Frank's grave in about a week at which time they say we should get a break in the rain. We had the all time hottest and driest summer in history here in Portland and now it is like the weather is trying to make up for lost time raining and raining every day. I am sure it will stop sooner or later.

Frank Plympton Young
You made a page for Frank Young in Lincoln Memorial Cemetery here in Portland. You put that he died in Nov. 1945.
Guess what? He died March 19, 1945 in Portland, Multnomah County, OR.
He had a funeral notice in the paper March 22nd that listed a couple of his sisters as survivors.
I sent you an edit to correct the date.

Thanks for the info on Virgie. I dug a little deeper and found Emma's middle and last names to be Lorraine Isaac. Can you confirm? Will be looking for parent and husband at Union next week.
