Bio Photo I am an archaeologist by trade but genealogy, history and cemeteries are my passions. I live in rural Clark County Washington and travel throughout Oregon and Washington, and would love to take any photos for other researchers and family members.

Everyone may use my photos and documents however you wish. I take & post these photos for families to enjoy and to help with ancestry research, so please do make use of them!

RE: Canby Cemetery - Abbott
You are welcome. No James name was not on this stone. I looked around the stone, but there were no other stones nearby with that last name. I walked a little over half of the cemetery. I started on the other side. I will try to get back there soon to finish this cemetery. Maybe he is in the part that I have not done yet.

RE: Fountain Cemetery
Nice idea Morgan! Would have to find out if the state will allow me to use goats! I already know a goat owner or two. Also there is a F.A.G. member you should contact. Larry COOL. He has access to the platt map of the cemetery, as he runs a funeral home in the area & also is a part of the Brookings County Genealogical Society. He told me he has the Fountain cemetery listing of everyone buried there (including those without markers). Your post reminded me I need to hook up with him to get that list so I can begin figuring out who needs artian crafted markers. If I have to make them out of whatever and refurbish the cemetery myself I'm willing as others are doing for my relatives in the NW and in Kansas. My relatives are in Washingtonb & Oregon. I I can relate to being far from my relations' graves.

RE: A C Stevens - Fountain Cemetery
Hello Morgan, I go out each spring before the grass gets waist high, to monitor the Fountain Cemetery. I will go out this coming spring, once the snow is gone & the dirt path/road is open to see if I can get a better image of the bottom of the stone. Many have sunken into the soil or perhaps its the plant matter has turned to soil and thus raised the soil levels since the original burials. The cemetery is SUPPOSED to be maintained by the State of SOuth Dakota, but the state hasn't maintained it due to the fact no one is filing complaints. The more complaints, the more they get their butts in gear & their budgets get allocated to the proper county people so the cemetery can be properly maintained. This coming spring, I plan on planting some flowers at all the identified graves. To help mark them. Also wanting to rebuild the cemetery's sign which is now rotted away. I need to find a way to get a bush cutting machine into the cemetery to cut back an evasive brush that is taking over the cemetery and preventing viewing of the few stones present.

RE: Kerr Memorials
Malcom (Martin) and his wife, Helena (Lena) are buried in Mount Wollaston Cemetery. I've posted memorials for both of them. Let me know if you want the memorials transferred to you. Also, I have a copy of the cemetery lot card (20 graves) in case you have any questions about who else is buried there.

Helena "Lena" Kerr
According to the Massachusetts Marriage Index, Lena Kerr married John William Mitchell of Quincy in 1924. Helena "Lena" Belle (Mathieson) Kerr Mitchell died 25 Apr 1934 in Quincy, according to an Ancestry.com search reference to a Mass. Death Certificate posted privately by "mckjenk." A couple of other sources confirm the 1934 date-of-death, but one of them (Quincy City Directory) puts it at 25 Aug 1934. It will be interesting to see if Lena is buried with husband #1 or #2. My maternal grandfather had a similar situation and he's buried with both wives!

Malcom John Kerr
I didn't see Malcom John Kerr's grave at Mount Wollaston Cemetery, but there's still a very good chance he's there. Next time I'm at the cemetery I'll check it out and let you know. Here's his death notice from the Boston Globe:

QUINCY -- There was another death from smallpox today (1 Mar 1902). The victim was Malcom J. Kerr. He was taken down one week ago today. He was 43 years of age, a granite worker by trade, and is survived by a wife and seven children.
