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, Pennsylvania and Kentucky doing my family research in cemeteries and historical societies. If you are family I would love to hear from you.

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.

One more thing.. if I find an error on any memorial I will ask for the mistake to be corrected. If it is a duplicate that needs to be removed or the addition of the plot location. I would like all memorials to be the best they can be.

RE: Lois Smith grave photos
I have requested a copy of Lois' Death Certificate; I want to make sure that I have the correct Lois Irene Smith. She is the correct age, but Smith is such a common name . . . . .

Lois Smith grave photos
Thank you very much for the photos, and for including the adjacent graves with the matching stones. I am not aware of the connection between Lois and the Newtons, but I will see what I can find out.

Thanks again!

Thank you for taking the time to take photos of my great uncle-aunt-cousin's monuments. I highly doubt I would have ever made it out to do so myself. You accomplished this so quickly, I am amazed. God bless you for your help. Kevin

Thank you kindly for getting the pictures of the memorials for my family. I live in PA, where all of these persons were born. Not sure if or when I could reciprocate, but if it works, let me know.
