Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband and I enjoy finding monuments for other people and am extremely grateful to the volunteers who have found my own people for me. We've been working on finding the little pioneer cemeteries in the area and putting their inhabitants online. Four of our memorial pages even helped to catch a gravestone thief. Cemeteries are extremely vulnerable to vandalism, theft, and the damage of time and weather. We appreciate all of the volunteers out there who are working so hard to document them before they are lost to history. Lately we're working hard to upload GPS coordinates with the Findagrave App-- WE LOVE IT!

Please note that I adhere to Findagrave policy, whether or not you may agree with it:

◊Find A Grave's primary purpose is a graves registration website.

◊Find A Grave's secondary purpose is a memorialization/remembrance site.

◊Find A Grave's tertiary purpose is a genealogical resource.

If a listing or contribution corresponds with only the primary purpose, it has fulfilled its part of Find A Grave's mission and is not required to correspond with the secondary and tertiary purposes. Fulfilling the other two is welcomed, encouraged and deeply appreciated, but as far as Find A Grave's purpose goes, a memorial page isn't lacking if it does not.

Transfers are only made within the guidelines set up by Find A Grave. These guidelines are in place for a reason - whether one cares to accept them or not. I am not going to debate what the owner has deemed acceptable for his site with members who choose not to agree with the guidelines. "The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it." I am willing to consider transferring ownership to you if you have a close family member among my records. I rarely transfer relationships more distant than first cousin... just having someone "in my family tree" or "a relative" will not elicit a transfer.

If you want information added to a memorial, go to the memorial and use the "Edit" tab to send me the information-- including family links. I will add information to the memorial, I do not transfer just because someone wants to add links or other information. Bottom line: what are you planning on doing with the entry that I haven't already done or am unable to do?

I may not transfer to you if the number of memorials that you manage is significantly greater than the number that you have contributed. Also, I hesitate to transfer memorials to those who do sloppy work, so emails laden with misspellings or other inaccuracies generally are ignored. Bad spelling is a pet peeve of mine.

On the other hand, I will always transfer if a memorial is sponsored. And if you upload family photos or in some other way add value to the memorial, I am much more willing to transfer.

I welcome all corrections to my own work. Some records were imported using OCR so have inevitable errors, both from the original records and from machine interpretation. I am only human and make mistakes, too, but will always make it priority to correct them.

RE: Keithline photo
You're welcome. Time has taken its toll on that stone. Plus, I'm a rookie at photography.

Penelton Heith Rogers
When Penelton died his body was shipped to Portland from California, so I guess I assumed that they were going to burying him with family. I'm not sure why I also put his brother in the same cemetery. I have removed them and will research further.

Susanna Boehm-Ochs
Hello Carrie and Allen, I just noticed that in your memorial for Susanna,# 37953375, you have son Philip Ochs listed twice. No big deal. Thanks very much for all your hard work and dedication!

Thank you so much for entering the information on Mr. Brown and Mrs. Rook and stating they were brother and sister. I was able to enter the complete name birth and death information for each. I have more information on each. Clarissa had two children by her first husband Charles H. Caswell and their son John is in Wasco Co., WWI registration and also the 1920 census. She also had 1 daughter by Mr. Rook(s)
Do I send it to you to add to their memorial?
Thanks again Rosemary Brown Harris
