Bio and Links
Bio Photo Unless I have some way to contact you to verify, I won't make changes to memorial pages.

I got involved with genealogy in 1982 when my parents were celebrating their 50th anniversary and wanted a family reunion campout with cousins they hadn't seen for many years. Mother's father was one of 13 children who had been close while growing up, but had drifted apart. My job was to "connect the dots" as to how we were related. As many of you know, it has exploded from there.

I have been a Find a Grave member for several years, but have recently become involved in picture taking. When I get a request, I can't just take that picture, but surrounding ones.
Thank you to those who have taken pictures for me. Let me know if I can help you.
Family names I'm working with are Wallace, Isenberg, Merrell(Merrill), Berry, Scheuffele, Crowley as well as some others.

Mamie Wyckoff/Wykoff
There are two pages for Mamie Wyckoff/Wykoff. One created by Corky C. in 2012 with little information (#88098277) and one by Carrie Bayless Sibley in 2014 with more information and a picture. May I suggest that the two of you make contact and merge the pages?

Error on Date of Death for Douglas Kent Penner
Hi Corky,
There has been a typo on the memorial page for Douglas Kent Penner (Link to page:

You have typed in Death: Sep. 6, 2010 when the actual date (as shown on the headstone photo) is Sep. 26, 2010.

When you can find the time, please fix this to reflect the correct date of death.

Thank you.

Martha Larson
As far as I know Martha is still living..... in fact, I know she was as of two weeks ago. Her stepson told she was fine and still living in Friday Harbor, WA. He talks to her fairly often.

Martha was my husband's second wife, before he and I married in 1980. He's now gone.

Memorial for Earl Frederick Vail
Regarding my previous message, I have learned that I should have also given you my contributor ID, which seems to be 48179774. It would mean a great deal to have the management of Dad's grave transferred over to me. Memorial # provided in previous message left 8-30-14 Thank you so much.

Earl Frederick Vail 1910-1985
This man was my father. My parents suffered a bitter divorce in 1951, I had almost no contact with Dad, through Mom, from then on. I finally found his death certificate and was going to try to find his grave via that. But in doing a general search in, today, 8-30-2014, I found Dad's grave at last. I sat and cried for awhile. It has been a long journey. We have/had genetic linked medical problems, which I have also just learned about in the last few years. I completely understand now why thing went so wrong for my parents and him because I suffer the same problems. If possible, would you please transfer ownership of his grave to me? I would be most grateful. I'm 71 and truly feel like I have reached the end of a very long journey and am at peace at last. Shirley Jean Vail, e-mail Memorial #87797278. If you were related to him in some way, I would love to know about it, as I know zero about his life after the divorce.
