Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband and I enjoy being photo volunteers. I use Find-A-Grave to research my family's genealogy and maintain and/or create their sites when possible. I like to include biographical sketches, family links and photos in hopes that will help others who are researching the same lines. I am researching Porter, VanPatten, Starns, Lewis, Hogg, Lawson, Kolp, Proctor, Childs, McCoy, Aplington, Bruner and more. If you see errors please let me know.

Christina McCoy
have talked to the caretaker at IOOF. Christina is buried between large headstone and Elihu McCoy (No Stone). Thomas McCoy is in the middle on the backside of the tombstone. He has no record of Jeffie. He says that doesnt mean shes not there. that just means he has no record.

Joseph Welch Cremains
I was wondering if you are near the Oregon State Hospital or if you have any info about contacting them that is different than what is on their website. I am willing to claim Joseph's cremains and I have left multiple message and even tried the e-mail listed (my server says not a valid e-mail). No one responds to my messages at all.
Also, I was wondering where the name George came from. Everything I find on him just lists his name as Joseph Welch.

RE: John Baller at OSH memorial
I posted 30 pictures, most from the 1939 to 1940 death dates part of one wall a few from 1954, I have 7 others I have not posted. No plans to post anymore, these are all I have. I will not be visiting Oregon again until next year, so will not be taking photos of the rest of the memorial.

I was interested in the tie in to Morgan Savage whose homestead the hospital was built on.

Although there were 2 pioneers named Morgan Savages in Oregon, this one is reported to be the brother of Major James D Savage killed where Reedley, Fresno County, California is now. Another tie in to history I had researched was the Penitentiary next door, the first Superintendent was Alva Shaw, who is buried in Selma, California in Fresno County.

I can delete my copies if you plan on posting better ones, a few I posted ware low resolution, so lots of room for improvement, and you have done a great job of researching these people and finding who they were before and after being committed.

RE: Earl Dotson
I have posted the copy of death record on our family facebook page, to see if any knows if this Earl is related. I don't have him listed in my Ancestry tree, but we do have Dotson's in the Oregon area.
I try and always leave flowers on all the Dotson memorials that I look at. Just for respect to them.
I am sorry that we are not a connection, that I am aware of. I hope that your memorial gets a lead so Earl can be reunited with family members.

Hello
Hi, Phyllis,

My name is Mari Summers and we are distant cousins through the Van Patten line. From what I can determine from a bio on Find A Grave, our common ancestor is Myndert Van Patten. Myndert's son, Aaron, is my great-great grandfather. I have just recently signed up with Ancestry.com and am trying to establish my relationship with Claes "Niclaes" Van Petten. I've gotten as far as Nicholaes Van Petten (1716-1790), but can't determine his direct lineage to Claes (1641-1728). Can you help me figure this out?

Thank you for any help, and have a great day!
Kind regards,
Mari Summers
