I am in Oregon off grid and we love it. Life in the simple lane after 40 years working is a nice change to retire too.
If you have a request in the local Christmas Valley, Oregon area you may make a request.

Other interests
16 years with rootsweb running 34 groups
16 years with Us Gen web 5 Oregon Co's
16 years having several Ancestry message boards.
16 years Oregon State Grange 6 th degree.
I Have over 60 years of Matney genealogy collections from many historians.
I really give the FAG volunteers a great hand for all they do. I know what it is to drive many miles and picture cemeteries and upload them. I have also done this over the years and pictured many for people who could net get to those locations. Good work find a grave people ;)
I don't need to make requests for transfers to help sites, only the few I did request are either direct family or a family I have spent 16 years in research and had planed to upload that. Some of those requests were refused. But it wont hurt the data I have, its still available to those direct relations.
I am enjoying my retirement as a sort of new age pioneer, off grid, hey - its a 25 round trip drive just to check the mail.

Ron Rogers
William Henry Rogers
Dan, I was at the memorial rededication ceremony when the civil war reenactors were there to redidicate the memorial for William Henry Rogers.
Today, I went back to the cemetery and found that the base of his monument is falling apart.
It doesn't appear to be vanalisim, but perhaps the wrong choice in mortar or concrete.
Regardless, I didn't know who to notify so I'm sending you this message. If you want photos, I will be happy to take some and email them to you so you can see what I'm talking about. My email is

The picture you added to this grave, is a picture of his daughter and her husband. It is a picture of my Great-Grandparents, Elizabeth [Lizzie] Dora [Miller] Harris and Clement Laird Harris. Amza Clovis Harris [grandfather] was one of thier sons, born April 24, 1901. Thank you for all your research and time... Can I ask you where you found the picture and your information on who it might be. There may be more photos that I have not seen. Thank you, Kitty Harris Fairview, MO.

Michael Miller
I am a relative, but not a descendant (Michael's brother Jacob was my ancestor). If you are a direct descendent, I would be happy to transfer. With such a common name, the Miller family can be difficult to research. You can find all the information from findagrave plus more at the Miller Family website run by Eric Davis. All my information is posted there as well. The direct website for Michael Miller is:

and you can navigate around from there by clicking on ancestors at the top or children at the bottom.

Erbaugh Cemetery
Dan and Cindy,
I forgot to mention to you that I surveyed the Erbaugh Cemetery back in the early 2001-2003 time period. If you would like, I could send you my survey of the cemetery which includes locations of all of the stones in the cemetery. Please let me know if you would like a copy and I will send it to your email.

Dan and Cindy, I transferred Mary Hull's Memorial to you. If you have any questions about cemeteries here in Ohio, please let me know.
Thank you for your kind comments about my work.

Dan, I transferred the David Hull Memorial to you. Do you wish for me to transfer his wife Mary Hull (71245575), to you as well? Just let me know.

Got it Done
This is my son-in-law's great uncle and when I was researching this family I was at this cemetery with his family to see where 4 generations are buried. Will be interested in what you add.
