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 site 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. Thank you.

No, you don't need to put in another pic request. I go up there a couple times a week with lots of to do notes and that grave is in my notes.
This is very unusual. In nearly 10 years of doing Find A Grave pics I have never seen a gravestone taken away without something put into its place. They never just take the stone away and leave it empty like that and remove the person from the VA data base. Weird. What the ALWAYS do is leave the stone there and put a green metal marker with a temp tag in it showing the person who is buried there and the name of the spouse who has recently died showing that a spouse will be buried there soon and the stone will be added when it is done.
The only reason I can see for this is they are not going to return Henry's cremanes to that grave location and they are going to put them together somewhere else.
Anyway, thanks for your input. I will keep an eye on things and I will find them if they put them back in there together somewhere.
It could take a while. It takes up to 6 weeks or more from the time they order a gravestone until the time they get it placed on the grave, ok?

Henry Karl Koth
You put in a pic request for the gravestone of Henry Karl Koth. I went up there today and guess what? His gravestone is gone! I took a pic of the grave that is next to where Henry was, showing the empty spot where his gravestone was. The stone on the left is in Section 1, grave 525. The next grave in that row is for Section 1, grave 526, right there where that bare dirt spot is.
For whatever reason, somebody in the family chose to have Henry removed from this cemetery just recently. Neither cemeteries, or funeral homes, are under any laws to keep track of what anyone does with cremanes nor do they keep any record of that unless they are put into a cemetery.
You could try calling the cemetery on the off chance that they may know where Henry's "ashes" went to. Their phone # is on the main Find A Grave page for this cemetery.
Henry is no longer in the VA's data base, the Nationwide Gravesite Locator they do.
I guess the idea that they are going to re-inter him into a different part of the cemetery is not entirely out of question and they just have not gotten everything processed and moved yet but I kind of doubt it in this case.
I am going to inform the guy who made this page for Henry that he needs to delete this page and wish him luck finding where Henry went, ok? Or suggest that he make the page an unknown burial page.

I have done a little research on John and Eliza Wilson-Stinson.
Was able to find 6 of the 7 children.

Thank you so much for the obituary. I added it to his memorial. You sent it a very long time ago and I finally got a round tuit!

My memorial for him has been deleted.
My main interest is in his wife Mollie Cowell. She is a member of our family tree which I have been researching for many years.
