RE: Dolly & Charlie Wade Jr.
Hi Jean, I linked Dolly to Charles as requested and added the obit you sent, though I edited out the survivor names. I do that with all obits of a certain age in order respect the privacy of living relatives.

Small request to be made from me to you, please make use of the 'edit' tab for such things as relationship linkage. That particular function is the 8th down on the edit list. All you need to do is plug in the memorial numbers and send it along. All I do then is 'accept' and we are all good.

Have a great day!

RE: Helen Tessin
You are very welcome. Thanks for the kind words. Would you like a transfer of Helen's husband, Jules', F-A-G memorial which I input yesterday? That way they could both be "under the same roof."

I checked today and no DOD yet. I have 30 or so that I keep checking back on. Hopefully, it will be there soon.

My Mt view collection
I live in Seattle, but I could see on various sights a need for some help at Mt. View. 2 friends and I made 3 trips and did a 1/3 of it. Since then I have seen others step up.
He could be there with Elizabeth ? And wife. There is no good sexton report at my last check 2 yrs ago. Many we swept off where temp markers or homemade and where unreadable. Other spots where clearly occupied graves with no marker at all.
The obit is good evidence. I would check wa state digital archives for a death record. Bottom corner says who or where he went.
Even with the obit alone I would make a memorial, link them as it describes and if family surfaces, you can transfer the package of them.
I could not find plot markings of any kind. I am sure as you enter the cemetery, it is somewhere to the left, but that is a giant area. We did do the ones I cased in the ivy.
Hope you place them all.

RE: James & Mary Barbee
I will add James to my on-going list of rechecks. Hopefully, his DOD will be added to the stone and I can add it to his memorial.

Thanks for the update.

RE: Frank F. Esquibel
Jean, there is no record in the National Gravesite Locator that Frank is buried in Willamette National Cemetery. Unless you have a site number, it appears that his grave is not there.
