Hello, I am a retired military Veteran. I served in the 60's, 70's and 80's, twice in Vietnam. I was very proud to serve my Country, and it bothers me to see the way our Government Leaders are leaning in the treatment of our wounded Veterans today. I worked for the Boeing Co,(after retiring from the military) until forced to retire on disability in early 2000. I have and enjoy classic cars, it has become my passion.
I would like to let anyone know that you may use any photo's I post on Find-A-Grave, can be used as you see needed. John
Herrick Graves Thank you so much for the photographs of the Herrick graves in the Woodbine cemetery. These three all died within days of each other in 1924 - mother and two daughters. What I did not realize until after I submitted the photo request is that there are two more Herricks in that same row, Muriel and Edna, that also died in that same time period in 1924. There are five of them spread out from grave 1 through grave 8 so there are likely three others with them from that same time period. Sounds like a real tragedy happened in that family. I will probably be calling the cemetery to see if they have records of what happened. Thanks again.
Sadie Lawerence I found her parents listed in the Grant County Oregon Cemeteries Book II Canyon City Cemetery on page 72. The cemetery books were compiled by the Grant County Genealogical Society. The Society may have had access to her death certificate which is likely at the Oregon State Archives.
I am not related, so I have no other information:)
RE: Re: Hazel Pittsley You're welcome. We were on a road trip this Spring and spent a few days in the area. Came home with over 2000 photos. It's taking me a while to get them posted. We noticed a lot of buried and partially buried markers in that cemetery. I believe a local girl got a group together a few years ago to clean up around the markers as her Senior project but a lot of them are becoming covered with sod again.
