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.

re: Michelek
Transfer complete.

You wondered how I get new entries so early...
it's no secret...

I search the VA Nationwide Gravesite Locator for new interments. The link is on my profile page. For Roseburg National Cemetery I do this weekly. I do this for 3 other VA cemeteries weekly; and Willamette National daily.

You could do it yourself if you like...
Simply select the cemetery from the drop down menu:
ie Roseburg National Cemetery
enter month & year: ie October 2014
enter last name "begins with": "a"
Enter search.
It will then list all the burials whose surnames begin with the letter a.
Then I search the FindAGrave Roseburg National Cemetery page for each person: if a memorial does not exist, I "add a new person to this cemetery".
All the basic info is there: name, dates, PLOT SITE, branch of service or related veteran ie " wife of..."
If a memorial page does exist, I check for edits; ie add plot site, middle name etc . Entries sourced from newspaper obits almost never include plot site.
Repeat for b, c, d, etc.
Usually the listings are available the next business day after interment.
Would you like to take over RNC?

Hi J.D.
Could you please connect Glen C. Walters (3887794) to his father, Mont Walters (54720618). If you could this for me, I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

Hi, posted the photo. Thought I'd mention, she's buried next to daughter, Eleanor Cook. (Informant on Myrtle's DC listed as Mrs. Charles Cook).

RE: Columbus Byron Stafford @ West View Cem
Hi! I will have them check under Byron as well to make sure. I will be back out there this week when the office reopens and can let you know either way. I am unsure why he was buried in the Charity Row section. I don't know why it's named that either, but it's not kept up as well and doesn't have alot of headstones either. I had difficulty finding 3 others on Charity Row also, which is why I've asked them to map it out exactly! :) As soon as I hear I will let you know. I can also get the name of the funeral home for you and you can request there records to see if they share anything insightful!

Branning overview
Did the overview shot come through-if not I'll resend. Never a problem doing so.

Woodard graves
When photographing the graves of Mary & Cora Woodard at Forest Lawn Cemetery I came across two other graves in this plot. Calvin died 1941 and William died 1956.
If you would like these photos please make a photo request. Thanks

Yes, we photographed the mothers and if you just post the photo request we will add hers. We love that cemetery and will go back for the two or three other family members if you photo request. The pleasure is ours to do work in Woodlawn, even though it is a little more difficult cemetery to work than some. It's worth it. Thanks for asking.
