Bio and Links
Bio Photo Currently I am working in the Mt. View Cemetery (Oregon City) in the County Park #1 section (paupers). It has been neglected for many many years. I have unearthed and photographed some 62 headstones and marked their rows. These folks deserve to have their graves maintained as much as anyone else in the cemetery.

I am a 6 generation Oregonian and have been doing my family genealogy since the early 70's. Back then it took months to find out one fact, today with the computer that information can be found in the blink of an eye.
Only now it seems more confusing the first thing I learned back then was to document all my information and make sure the facts were correct. Now a day's people just put anything on the internet only guessing or by family stories, making things more confusing. I am now trying to set apart family fact from fiction to keep the information correct for future generations to come.
I love doing genealogy it's a real life a good book you can't put down the only thing is I will probably never know the ending or the beginning.

My memorials are family and a work in progress, adding to each one as I find family material and photos. I have traveled to Washington, California, Ohio and Pennsylvania doing my family research in cemeteries and historical societies. If you are family I would love to hear from you.

There is nothing worse than someone stealing someone's work, not giving credit to the original poster then pretending it is their work. Please don't be one of those people, and please don't use my photos or documents without asking first.

Family names:

I do photo requests and take photos while I am in the cemetery. I like to take more than one photo of the headstone, to give you the feeling of being there and seeing the surrounding area. If you would like me to remove any of my photos just ask.

Genevieve Elsie Davey Carr marker
I was wondering if you know where Mr. Carr is buried I can't find anything. I know that Genevieve was counted in the 1940 census, she single, 29 y.o. and working keeping house for a retired man Roswell Bewley age 75 in McMinnville. Interesting story at Bewley's F.A.G. listing about his father.

I believe Genevieve is a distant genetic relative of mine.
I won't share the details in the public forum. If you would like to contact me by email at I can fill you in. I was also looking for her and her mother Ada Aurelia Gerber Howell obit w/o success.
Thanks Doug in Tacoma, WA

Yes - I have asked and hopefully will get the maintenance. Her first husband was my grandfather Ralph Smith and his son, Ray Eugene was my father. Her second husband was Peter Lucier and her third Joel Halstead. I'll work to get her parents in also if I get the maintenance.

I thank you so much for doing this!! I remember going to the gravesite with my grandmother Vera Halstead. She cried when we visited him. I am startled to read that she supposedly married "Uncle Joe" twice??? She was named Vera Lucier before they married. I'll have to ponder this...
