Bio and Links
Bio Photo As my wife and I travel we try to fulfill requests where ever we are. We enjoy walks through different cemeteries. We find there is a lot of history, culture, and art to be seen in them as well as some very interesting inscriptions.
The discrepancy between our added and managed memorials result from taken over some memorials from a fallen graver.

If we have management of your relatives site and you would like to have it transferred to you please let us know and we will transfer it to you. Please also include your relationship to the person you are requesting transferred.
Also note that if your request is abrupt, demanding or in any way construed to be unpleasant, you will not hear from us.. We have grown very tired of this type of request.
The exception of course to a transfer is that if it is our direct relative we would be inclined to keep it ourselves.

As far as the pictures and information we enter on Find A Grave, feel free to use it for any Non Commercial purpose. We have no desire to try to control its usage or be credited for it. If it is for a commercial purpose, please contact us first.
I photo document large areas and do not strive for quality when I am just gathering pictures to make memorials from... I do post some of these photos, but will willingly remove them for a better photo if you have one...

PLEASE use the Edit tab located at the top right for corrections, additional information or to request transfers.

Ida L. Coffman's grave
JD, thank you so very much for getting a photo of my grandmother's grave. I had 11 years to know her, but we haven't been back to visit her grave since the funeral 24 years ago, as we live in Idaho. This will please my parents, too. Thank you, again. Have a very Merry Christmas.

Thank you JD for these wonderful photos. You must have gotten a break in the weather. I hope it wasn't too cold and wet.

Merry Christmas.
Terrill Parrish.

I'll have to send it in chunks as there's a 25 mb limit off gmail.

RE: Mt View
There is a LDS Family History Center in Tacoma at the corner of S 12th St and Pearl St. The Center is the building that's exactly on the corner. Door is on the side facing the rest of the church. Go inside and you'll see a 4' tall steel cabinet that's about 3' across. Inside that are microfilms. The top drawer is where I found a microfilm for Mountain View as well as Old Tacoma cemeteries. Both were apparently projects done by Mormons, probably older teens doing their mission work. Anyway, the photographed the actual internment books. Mind you the writing in the books for Old Tacoma can be hard to read. Mountain View's starts in 1916 gos through part of 1957. Old Tacoma's stars in 1880 and goes up to part of 1957. For some reason I missed 1912-1927 for Old Tacoma, not sure if I skipped them or they just didn't get a hold of those books.

If you want, I could email you what I have on my computer since I already did the work. Mind you my Old Tacoma stuff is a bit iffy. I will have to redo some or all of it one of these days. Just let me know if you want to get them from me or if you'll get your own scans done.

Thank you very much for the photo of Ralph's memorial. The military information ties together conflicting records and solves a mystery.
