Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began genealogy research in 1986. It's been a fun, exciting, stimulating, challenging experience with many strange and wonderful adventures, along with numerous twists and turns. I have met many wonderful people in the search for my ancestors. I have family who came West to Oregon Country on the Oregon Trail in 1843, 1852, and 1853. Some later migrated West by train. Some of the family lines I'm researching are: Bloyd, Brooks, Byron, Cox, Cullen, Darneille, DeCosta, Dixon, Graham, Gray, Hedick, Hempstead, Hilts, Janes, Johns, Larimore, McGee, Mee, Pleasants, Poteet, Rynbergen, Smith, Stafford, Willis & Young.

NOTE: If you contact me by personal message on this page about any of my memorials, pls mention the person's name, memorial number, and cemetery. Otherwise, don't be surprised if I don't respond. Likewise, if you contact me via email (preferred), pls give me the same data. In all cases, editing suggestions should be transmitted via Findagrave's usual procedure. Thank you.

Thank you very much for processing the info on my classmate Bonnie and her younger brother. It is always good to unite a family - especially when they are so far removed from their roots and not in a location where family or friends might be looking for them. That is the beauty of Findagrave - it allows us to connect family and friends those many miles apart. People often ask me why I support Findagrave so much and finding Bonnie is one of the reasons. You and your friend entered the info that allowed me to find her. Since finding Findagrave almost 6 yrs ago I have devoted many hours to adding the info that I have accumulated in over 60yrs of genealogy research in hopes that it would help others find their loved ones. I find it rewarding and I thank both you and Doug for the work you are doing. I'm sure there will be others on down the road thanking you, too.

Mary Jane Thomas Owens
Why does her memorial now look like someone ran over it with a bulldozer. It is not in a proper state for public viewing.

Please, do not do this to anyone's relatives.

Thank you

This message is in reference to Donald W. Ingwerson Sr. Could you please delete the generic photo from Roseburg Memorial Gardens? I would like to replace it with another photo of my grandfather.
Thank You,

Jane unknown Hart
Buried near, George Washington Hart. Is there any way to know if this is his missing wife, Amanda Jane [Slice] Hart. She died in about 1912. While he died in about 1883.

They were farming for awhile in the Vancouver, Clark, Washington area as seen in the, 1860 US Fed. Census for the Vancouver-Washougal area. Before they moved to Wheeler County, OR

George Washington Hart, Jr. was born in Wheeler County, Oregon on 24 Jun 1896. There is a Oregon State Archives record of his birth.

Thank you, Martin S Burrell

Hello from So California
I too have no connection to this family, but found it fascinating to start making the links and connections. We've got a great bunch of independent volunteers, doing photos, updating links, and researching for edit requests here at the "local" cemetery. Love to read the detailed obits like the ones you've posted. They are such a treasure trove of information. Small world incidents keep occurring too. Was helping a friend with her family tree, who we thought were all at quite a distance away. Then, one day, while updating grave photos for Find A Grave project, I came across one that had a link to her family. My two unrelated projects suddenly crossed paths, and we found where the disappeared 2nd cousin went!
