Bio and Links
Bio Photo The very first thing I want to say is THANK YOU to all of you who send me edits for the memorials I manage. I check Find A Grave almost every day and absolutely love it when edits come my way. I use the edit feature often, and it always lifts my spirits when I see them go through. It reinforces that this site is a community effort and we are all working together to make it as complete and accurate as possible.

I have been interested in genealogy for 30 years and have written over a dozen family history books, the first one in 1979. The majority of our family vacations in the 1980s & 1990s revolved around cemeteries and visiting relatives. (Our kids ask why there are so many photos of them posing on headstones!)

When I joined FindAGrave, I kept busy adding our own family members. I knew where most were buried but some had to be searched for. In 2013, my husband and I took a trip through Montana, North Dakota and Minnesota and, in the process, found lots of folks to whom we were not related. I've created memorials for them adding as much additional information as I could find. We were able to fill dozens of photo requests; it felt good being able to pay forward all of the requests that volunteers have filled for us.

I endeavor to make memorials as complete as possible, including headstone photos, bios and links. (I have received permission for obits unless the newspapers are out of print or the copyrights have expired.)

Most of my memorials are family members, but I'll happily consider transfers if you are more closely related.

You are welcome to use any of the photos I have posted but I would enjoy hearing from you if you do use any.

FindAGrave has added so much to my life. I love being a part of it!

Conrad Faust
The Rose City Cemetery looked up all the information that they had on Conrad and it wasn't much? Their records indicate that Conrad died January 27th, 1930 in Portland. I think that I put his burial plot information on the photo but if not it is:
Section A Row 111 Grave # 28. Conrad is not in the Oregon Death Index? I do have his passport application if you would like it?

I found a marker (via Geocache) for John Edmunds Pickernell. I did not take the photo so cannot post it but will send it to you via email. Maybe you can take a photo of the marker? Inscription is:

(DAR Insignia)
John Edmund Pickernell
New Hampshire 1818
Washington Terr 1877
Wife Tonwah
Settled this site 1842
Champoeg Convention 1843

The marker is located at 6801 Ortelius Dr. Ilwaco, just off Stringtown Rd and Capt Robert Gray Dr., a triangle of land. I have the gps code also if you want it.

But I also found some evidence that he is buried in the Ilwaco Cemetery, moved from the original site (??):
Ilwaco Cemetery Pacific County, Washington
"Pickernell, John Edmons, b. 1818, d. 1877, (death by drowing in Meriweather shipwreck, previously bur on C. CHRISTENSEN farm)"
I wonder if he also has a marker at the Ilwaco cemetery?

Cora Love
I have documentary proof that Cora's birth name was Ina Corella Adams, and that Agnes is incorrect. Would be happy to e-mail it to you.

Harry Edward Wakefield, # 155267746
Hello Nancy,
I'm doing a photo project in the mausoleum at Lincoln Memorial, Portland, Oregon. I found the crypt for Harry and wife Harriet, took photos and placed them Harry's memorial page. If you have photos you would rather place on the memorial, or don't like the ones I did, please contact me and I'll remove mine.

RE: Annie Bunch
Fantastic!! Yes, sounds like you solved the name mystery. You're a good researcher!! Won't be necessary to send their marriage record. Sometime this weekend I'll see if I can locate what you did. That way I don't get rusty :O Thanks for sorting it out. Hope you have a great weekend.

RE: Edith Tirrell
I just transferred her to you. I think family no matter how distant can always take care of the memorials best.
