Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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

Oregon Historical Records Index
Oregon State Archives in Salem has copies of each county's death certificates that are 50+ years old, dating from 1903 to December 1964 at the present time. Email contact the Oregon State Archives and provide them with the deceased person's name, date of death and the county of death. Also provide them with your mailing address. They will email you your requested copies within a day or two. Then within a month, they will send you an invoice to pay. The fee is $5 per copy if you are an Oregon state resident or $10 if you are out of state. If you are near Salem, you can visit the Archives and obtain death certificates for the cost of the copy machine, about 35 cents each. (Bring your I.D. with you and you can take nothing inside except paper and pencils, no notebooks or bags, etc.) They also have an incredible amount of really interesting records of all kinds, dating back to the early 1840s. It is worth a visit if you can make it there. Good luck, Jan

RE: Re: Anna (Foreman)(Mercer) Pittsley
Sure, I will tonight. Also I took many Bellingham stones around Emil for other Bellins. I can't remember if I posted them all, will check tonight. We are in a road trip across country and need my laptop. I also want to crop all stones to get rid of extra area but thought it more imprtant just to get them up.

I went looking for Anna and Wilford Ankerson today. They are listed as being in this cemetery but I couldn't find them. Will try again another day. I did find a stone for Clarence (1902 - 1914). Do you want that pic in the meantime?

Emelie Williamson #90100532

Thank you for the compliment, and my goodness, yes, you can use the headstone photo of Emelie Williamson, Memorial #90100532 in your family tree on If you would like, I can transfer her memorial to you; just let me know. Also, if you find any other headstone pictures you would like to put on, please feel free to do so.

I found one of my great-grandfathers on, and wanted to give someone else the opportunity to find theirs. The few that Iíve added to Findagrave so far, have been very successful and Iíve heard from a lot of friends and relatives of the deceased at this cemetery; some wanting to take care of the memorial themselves, which is great because they have all their information to add that I wouldnít know, and others making suggestions or changes in some fashion or another.

Iím also retired, and at the present time Iím traveling around the US visiting friends and relations. Iíve stopped at a couple small country cemeteries to check and see if the interred had been added to Findagrave, but/and so far they have. I think itís great that folks can find friends and relations this way, and if and when I find a cemetery that hasnít been cataloged, it will tickle me to death to do it.
