Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in family history for over 45 years and doing genealogical research and documentation since 2001. I live in Lane County, Oregon. Contact me if I can be of help in this geographic area. I am willing to pull obituraries or other research.

One of my maternal great grandmothers lived to be 106 years old and was a great historian. I can remember as a child sitting next to her rocking chair listening to stories about her life or an historical event that she witnessed. She passed away in 1976 without a hint of dementia. In 1969 my mother interviewed her over a two day period and she captured it all on the old reel to reel tapes. I took the tapes to a sound studio and had them transferred to CD. What a family treasure!

I have been blessed by so many who have helped me in my quest to discover more about my family. Joining Find A Grave as a photo volunteer is one way of giving back to the genealogical community for the blessings that I have received.

Debbie in Oregon

Smith-Weyerhauser Cemetery

Sorry, I don't have information on how to reach the Smith-Weyerhauser Cemetery. My understanding is that it was on private Weyerhauser land, around 65th Street in Springfield, and is lost to the elements. If I do come up with further information, I will let you know!

RE: Gates Family - Dayton, Washington
Hi, Debra.

Nope, no relation. Charles Gates and his wife, Ida, are buried in the same cemetery as my parents. Another contributor messaged me today with some information for Charles, including his children's names, so I was just searching to see whether I could link them up.

Thank you for your contributions to Find A Grave!

Dear Debra, Thankyou so much for taking the pictures of my grandparents grave stones. This is the 80th year anniversary of them leaving New York State and traveling to Cottage Grove Oregon. I know very little about them my grandfather died before I was born,and I had no idea my grandmother was called the Buckaroo. My hope is these memorials will help their decendants know what they looked like and who they were.Once again I am very grateful for you contribution to their memorials. Sincerely yours Greg Dunlevy.

RE: Churchills at Cottage Grove
While you were last at the Fir Grove cemetery, did you happen to notice if there were any Bradfords there? I suspect that Elbert and Annie Bradford (parents of Laura (Bradford) Bogard/Churchill/Blanchard) are there, but I have not gotten their DC's yet. They both died at Cottage Grove, but their obits did not mention burial location. :-(
