Bio and Links
Bio Photo Currently I am working in the Mt. View Cemetery 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.

RE: RE; Fred and Alyce Bangham
You are welcome. I always check out a contributor before I transfer memorials. I have had several people join F.A.G. and have memorials transferred to them. Then they delete them or become inactive. I figure if a contributor has been a member for awhile and has other memorials they are pretty safe. I saw you have had done some great work! Love to see that! :)

The transfer was made. Are you working on the Mt. View cemetery in Ashland? I have several generations of family buried there: Werth, Ganiard, Ysunza. Thanks, Jana

Thanks for the photo
Thank you so much Penny for taking a picture of Mary Ann Graves King's grave in Mountain View Cemetary. She is my g-grandma & my mother's grandma. I have recently started doing geneaology again & have developed an obsession with the work. I read your biography & am so grateful for you doing this for others. Thanks again, Kelley
