Bio and Links
Bio Photo This picture is of my Great Grandparents James William Taylor Sr. and Rachel Murray Ledgerwood. They settled in the heart of Oregon, in Stayton in the 1870's.

I am happy to tell all that the Oso slide missed me by 100'. My house did get flooded with 6' of water and I have found a new home. Take a look at the photo section of Larry Taylor's Facebook page (from Arlington, Washington) to see around my home minutes after the slide.
Many Blessings to all those we have lost.
Thank You to all those that have helped.
Love, Larry Taylor

I live in Snohomish County, Washington. I have joined the "Quest" to Photograph every headstone in the County. I am pleased and proud to say I have 10 or more individuals that have joined with me to achieve this "Quest!" Many Blessings to the "Quest" Team.

I am also looking to find my family. The Taylor clan originally came from Virginia (Possibly West Virginia 1700's). Settled in California (1850's) and then moved to Oregon (1870's) near Stayton and Sublimity. Looking for Dull, Lund, Cota, Fincher, Ledgerwood, and Taylor. I am a Vietnam Veteran and have a special spot in my heart for all Vets. USMC, 1967 to 1969.

You are welcome to use the photos I place on the site. You need not get my permission. Feel free to contact me if you need my assistance.

I am a member of the Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society in Arlington, WA. I am working with Leilani Lucrisia on the Arlington Cemetery and other local cemeteries.

I am also a member of the Marysville Historical Society and we have completed the Marysville Cemetery with the assistance of Larry Rankin and Carmen Stoops.

Currently taking pictures at GAR in Snohomish, Evergreen in Everett and Floral Hills in Lynnwood. We have about 30,000 pictures to take and upload. 09/1/2013.

Contact for more information or to obtain an obituary for the local area (Snohomish County, Washington).

To Lindsey Allen (1991-1998) My birthday Twin.
Take my hand Lindsey. Walk with me. Be that small voice in my ear to make me a better Christ. Help me bring Heaven to Earth. The Age of Aquarius, the Fourth Dimension, the end of what we call Death. Dance about me as mankind realizes his and her Godliness.
Take my hand Lindsey. Walk with me. Be that small voice in my ear to remind me to love everyone, everywhere.
Take my hand Lindsey. Walk with me. Lead me to your parents, let us heal the void in their Hearts.
Take my hand Lindsey. For you and I have a foot in Water and a foot in Fire. We dance upon the Earth and breath the Air of life. We understand the connection to the Sun and the Moon and the Earth and the Air. We speak the emotional language of the creator. I see us standing before God, being the channel of Love, to life on Earth and reflecting back to God.
Take my hand Lindsey, for we can do this!

Blessings to you and your Families.
Rev. Larry Taylor (July 21)

Blessings to all our brothers and sisters throughout this Universe!

Thank you.
Thank you for taking so much of your time to give something so meaningful for people outside the reach. It means more than you'll probably ever understand! <3

Oh, thank you so very much for BOTH those photos of the headstones! The photos are great! Something tangible just means so much more when you don't have access to family photos. Thank you, again, Reverend Larry!

RE: Jean Ledgerwood Hege
I am unable to locate any Hege in my list of memorials. Also, I did not find a "Bass-Smith" Cemetery in Catawba Co., NC??

Military Rank -Anthony M Leach -28345327
Larry please do not send me request for changes to include military rank for all the men and women I have added.

My personal preference was not to use their military designation. Many people with military headstones like my father were never really known as Sgt, Lt, Pvt, etc. I will not add anything new and do not wish to make over 8,000 transfers to you because you prefer to have their rank included in the name prefix.

Find A Grave does not provide an easy way to decline personal request for information changes.

Thank you for doing such a nice job of adding the information sent on this person. He's connected to a number of Butte County (CA) individuals, and it was great to find him - sans full name and dates - but you've fixed that! A in CA

Samuel Stanifer - 84798441 - Melvina Stanifer - 84798429
I noticed that on the sights for these two people, that they were transfered from you to them. I was wondering if you are any family to Samuel or Melvina? I have written to the sight and asked the same question. My husbands Great Great Grandparents were Sam Stanifer and Melvina Moles. There is a lot of similarities in these two. I'm just trying to make sure I get the right people with the right family. I saw also you now live in Washington. I too, live in Washington. Tacoma. Thank you for sharing all this information here. It is a lot of help to all of us.

RE: Rosemary Malakowsky
Welcome! Feels good to help others, especially with extended family. My maiden name is Nabozny, so I feel an extra connection helping with Eastern European heritage.
Take care,
