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.

Since 2014 I have been researching people whose unclaimed cremains are being stored at the Oregon State Hospital. After researching their lives I try to find living relatives to let them know where their family member's ashes are. I have been lucky to make many connections.

Hi Phyllis,

Thanks for the edit. I put the obit on the page, so if you can take the one you posted off, that would be great.

Best Regards,

You are welcome & thank you for what you do! If you run across the cremation remains of George Dunaway d 1916 or his wife Sarah/Sally Jane Dunaway d 1918, please let me know. They were from The Dalles, Wasco, Oregon.

Phyllis, thank you for the information. I deleted my site as per request as yours has so much more. No problem. She is not directly related to me. It is so sad that no one has claimed her ashes.
Thank you again for the heads up on her.

RE: Maude (Deeds) Barlow #66987322
Sounds good. I passed the information on to you since you spearhead the effort to find homes for the forgotten folks from OSH. I wasn't sure if you needed this information for OSH records.
