RE: Re: Eleanor Foster
Dear Ellen,
Many apologies for not getting back to you three months ago regarding the Fosters, who are related with the Burkharts (my family) a number of times. R & H Foster were Robert and Hannah Foster who came from Ohio (Robert) and Illinois (Hannah) and were in Oregon by 1860, in time for the census. However, a daughter, Emily, was b.1852 in Oregon, and a brother of Robert's, James E.Foster, d.1848 in Albany, so I am betting they arrived in 1848 with many of the earliest families, just one yr. after mine settled in Albany. All I know about Eleanor Graham Foster is what you know, at this point, that she was born in Pennsylvania in 1829. She was a sister of James Hearst Foster, whose 1st wife was Martha J.(Gray) Foster. After her death, he married my gt.gt.grandfather's sister, John Burkhart's daughter, Louesa Matilda (Burkhart) Thompson, who was a widow. They married in 1882, but James Hearst Foster died in 1888 and he was buried with Martha. Louesa went to Portland to live with her daughter, Hettie Templeton, who was married to a dentist, Dr. Charles Ritchey Templeton. She died in Jan.1907 and her remains were sent back to Albany so she could be buried by her husband, David M.Thompson in the Masonic Cemetery in Albany. Another child of Robert & Hannah (Froman) Foster, James Edwin Foster, married Plessa Caroline "Carrie" Burkhart, a great granddaughter of John Burkhart. They had 3 children. Isaac Rand Froman and his wife had a daughter named Lola Amelia who married Crill Davidson Burkhart, a grandson of John Burkhart, and were blessed with 3 children. So you see the Foster/Burkhart connection goes way back and I don't think I've mentioned all of them, just the main ones I can readily remember. I know I still have searching to do which involves searching for death certs., when time and health permit, but I'm still loving it. All of these people are related to me, some more than others, and we were lucky to find a photo album so I could include many pictures of my family members (although the only one that I have found of John Burkhart, my gt.gt.gt.grandfather, looks so stern and severe! He was in his later years when it was taken, his hair had turned white, etc.). So, happy graving and thanks for the info. I keep hoping something else will pop up. You never know.
With all Sincerity, Kathie L.Webb Blair

Eleanor J.Gray Hearst
Dear Ellen,
I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you! I've been taking care of my sister who has, unfortunatelly, another surgery coming up pretty soon. Have also had my own health & financial issues to deal with. Anyway, I found Eleanor on Find A Grave under Eleanor J Gray & just sent David an email asking him to trn her to me, as I have a number of Foster connections w/the Burkhart family, my ancestors on my mother's side, along with the Davidsons. Eleanor was James Hearst Foster's 1st wife, just as you wrote to me from her headstone back last month. After Eleanor died, James remarried. His 2nd wife was the 2nd husband of Loueasa M. Burkhart Thompson, whose 1st husband, David M.Thompson, had died in 1879. (I hope that makes sense.) Their marriage lasted until James passed in 1888. Loueasa then went to live with her daughter in Portland, OR until her death in early 1907. Her remains were transported back to Albany and she was buried at the Masonic Cemetery next to her 1st husband, David Thompson, under the name Loueasa M. Thompson. I couldn't find her for quite a while as someone had noted in error she had died in 1907 at age 21, when she was actually age 71. I've gotten alot of help from so many people at Find A Grave, incl. you!, and have been able to find so many relatives that have been missing for so long. I just wanted to thank you for the information that has helped me to close another chapter in my family history.
With all sincerity, Kathie L.Webb Blair, Portland

RE: Julia Miller
Abraham Miller Jr is buried on his homestead, in Antelope Creek. Julia MAY also be there. There are six graves. Abraham's is marked as you noted with a metal foot marker only. Another grave is that of his son Philip who died a month after he did. We think one of the unmarked graves belongs to one of Abraham's brothers, Thomas M. Miller. One is Abraham's second wife, Elizabeth Crowley Dagley who was previously married to Joseph Turnage. Abraham and Elizabeth are the uppermost graves on the slope.

RE: Raymond Kirk
No worries, you did the right thing. I don't create memorials for "no-DOD" folks until they're 100 years old (sometimes they just don't get put on the stone) or unless I know of their actual DOD.

Thanks!
Carrie
