Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find a Grave has been a great resource for freely sharing information among researchers. I am rather concerned that will figure out a way to screw it all up like they have with RootsWeb. I would like to think that they learned their lesson from all the negative publicity they received in that earlier takeover, but they are so focused on the Almighty Dollar that it's hard to predict -- their corporate greed overwhelms both their common sense and common decency. If they begin to charge or otherwise restrict access (mandatory registration or tracking cookies) in order to view the photos and data that have been freely donated by millions of volunteers, I know that I will immediately delete any of the items that I still have control over.

You may freely use any of the grave photos which I have taken for any legal purpose. The other items (personal photos, obits and other documents) may have copyright restrictions of which I am unaware, so use your own best judgement on those.

Minerva Warren (121379635)
You were kind enough to transfer Minerva to me. I am now trying to locate her brother who also live in Linn County Oregon and I think he might possibly be buried at this same cemetery. Do you live close enough to do some research? I am in NE, so it would be a bit of a drive!!!
His name was Elizur N. Dunbar and his birth date is listed as 05-10-1837 and death date as 02-01-1864.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

RE: Margaret Boylan
I'll stop back there and look at the back of it and see. I think I do remember seeing one that says mother but not totally sure.

Margaret Boylan
When I talked to the Patricia at the cemetery office, she mentioned that back in 1950 there was a fire that destroyed their files. I did another walk through of the section she said she was and that was the only Margaret Boylan I can find. But will continue to keep an eye out for her when I walk through each section.

RE: Margaret Boylen grave photo
That was the section that the office gave me. And it's the only Margaret Boylan that I have found in the cemetery. I can go back another time and check again, but the person I talked to in the office looked it up on the computer.

No I don't, so you may as well keep them. DKauffman

My mother was a Kropf from Oregon so I think you could say these are all distant relatives. If you want to transfer them to me I would accept but I not pressuring to do it. Thanks for the offer. DKauffman

RE: William & Esther Jones photos
Yup, hers was pretty dirty. Her stone has sunk quite a bit. The letters were all plugged full of moss and dirt too. I thought you might like to be able to actually see what it said on her stone. Cleaning them up is good exercise for me and it is the only way I can get myself to exercise. So it is a win win situation.
There was another Jones couple three rows straight down the hill from where they are. I did some checking and it does not look like they are related. There are a few Joneses here and there are there not? :-]
The names were Charles Wesley Jones 1865-1933 and his wife Mary Elizabeth 1867-1931
Nobody has added them to Find A Grave. I will probably do that tomorrow.
