Researching my own family history and try to capture photos whenever I'm near a cemetery in my tree, but most of what I need is on the East Coast. Any pictures of headstones I have photographed have no copyrights attached and are free to be used as desired.

RE: Herbert Baker
Hi, your message is very confusing regarding, Herbie Baker. "Duplicate" but I have the right parents?? Please clarify, I go by the Cemetery Records and I'm confused as to your reference. Esther

Sarah Jane "Jennie" Binnington
For a friend and neighbour, Iram Robert Smith, I am researching the Smith, Crosbie and Buchanan families and now the Binnington and Banks.

His grandmother was Ida Buchanan, the daughter of Robert Thomas Buchanan and Sarah Jane Binnington, which I have found under the name of Bennington ... which brought me to your page in Find a Grave.

I welcome all the ancestral facts you have posted on this site.

If you would like further information on Ida and her family, please contact me.

Ida and her husband, William Henry Crosbie were married on 17 Dec 1924 in Alliston, Tecumseth Twp., Simcoe Co., Ontario and are the parents of Agnes Ann Crosbie, Iram's mother. Through his great-aunt, Irene (Orillia, Onario), I am learning, bit by bit, more info, and hopefully, I will soon have the full picture.

Thank you for all you have provided.

Hi Ralph:
I was going to put up a photo for Charles,but I noticed the dates on the marker are different than the one in the memorial,but the spouses are the same.

The baby Rebecca is listed at the bottom of the mother's stone - near the grass line.

Hi Ralph - acc. to OR death index, Paul C. Thatcher, Jr. died in Portland. no county was listed. were you aware not all of Portland is in Multnomah Co.? part of the city is in Washington Co. that is why I only listed location as Oregon.

You are very welcome! Whenever I visit a cemetery, for my own photos, I try to look for requests like yours. Thanks for the plot number for location. It helped a lot, since the cemetery office was closed that day.
