They are buried at the Ballard Schoolhouse Cemetery about a mile down below my house. I've always asked my mother if she knew anyone by that name and she didn't. Glad to know I've found out who they are. I have cleaned off the cemetery the last two years and always make sure all of the graves have flowers on them. Thanks for your messages. Karen

Hester Elizabeth Williams Hughes
Kathie - you've made a mistake regarding the parents for Hester Elizabeth Williams Hughes in the note left with memorial flowers. She is buried at Moon Cemetery in Madison County, Alabama.

Her parents were William Richard Lewellen Williams #12272849 and Virginia Ann Carpenter Williams #12272834 and they are buried at Byrd Cemetery in Madison County, Alabama.

Hester is my 1st cousin 1x removed, and I was well acquainted with her and her siblings when I was a child. Thanks in advance for correcting your memorial flower note.

I have added R.B. and S.C. Tierce tombstones to findagrave if you would like to see them. I found where you commented and maintain their sons grave sites on there. My email is and I am on fb for the time being. Karen Manasco

RE: Fred Oliver Baker
Hello Kathie,

I am no related. I have been working with the City of Sumas trying to organize and verify their cemetery records. Unfortunately there are no early records so we are are relying on Ancestry, obituaries and some older residents for clarification.

With regards to the Baker family, we have the headstones for

Alfred Baker Jun 14 1903-Oct 14 1982
Frances S "Jensen" Baker Mar 3 1911- June 11 1999

Carrie Jane "Christenson" Baker Mar 27 1871-Aug 5 1958
Frank R Baker 1871- May 13 1958

Alfred Baker Jul 30 1843-Aug 12 1911

What we are trying to figure out is Frank has a headstone "Mother" above his headstone and who is mother? His mother Sarah I think died in De Moine Iowa but there is another Christenson Mattie buried in this lot and is it could be his and Carrie's mother?

If you have any insight I'd really appreciate any help. In the meantime
we will continue to pursue our research into who this could be.

This started out as taking a few photos for people and has turned into a full time project , but it very fulfilling when people like you can fill in your family histories. Gone but not forgotten.

Kathie, I am aware it was Elijah Barton Davidson, Jr who discovered the Oregon caves. Had I implied otherwise somewhere?

Good news! Glad to hear it...thanks!

RE: Archie Sherrill
No problem.
I only saw this when trying to determine a "most likely cemetery in the area" for someone else. I look at the numbers so when I see only 1, or 2 memorials in a cemetery with a very similar name to another cemetery with many more, I stop and first search for duplicates...then for same surname...and go from there if I have time.

Glad to know Archie will soon be joining others...maybe family. :)

RE: Sponsoring Corintha Lewis
You are very welcome. I try to sponsor all of my direct ancestors, when they are not already being sponsored. It is my way of honoring those who came before us and made us what we are today. Regards, Linne

RE: photo of Karen Paschell Gamble
Thank you for your nice note, Kathie. I wish I had known Karen personally; actually she was a third cousin -- her great-grandmother, Emma Brackenbury Flanders, was the sister of my great-grandfather, Lester Brackenbury -- and almost exactly my age. I have a lot of family ties to Independence, Missouri, and have traced a lot of my Brackenbury kinfolk to Oregon, but have never had the chance to meet as many as I'd like. It sounds as though you were a very good friend to Karen.

Sponsoring Richard Pough's page

That was very nice of you to sponsor the founder of the Nature Conservancy, Richard Pough's Find A Grave memorial page.

He was an amazing guy, who saw a need, and took action to help preserve vast amounts of natural habitat, helping innumerable plant and animal species survive.

Best regards, Frank

RE: Thank You!

You are very welcome. Your Dad and mine had a lot in common. They were close in age, fought in WW II in the Pacific theater, were Fire Fighters and both retired around 1982.

I also agree with your feeling about the Find A Grave site; it is cathartic, and allows us to visit our loved ones' memorial pages and leave notes to them and others' loved ones out of respect for lives well lived.

I'm sure our Dad's have looked each other up, and are reliving their shared memories of WW II and their Fire Department service.

You take care as well.

My best regards, Frank

Charles Webb Born 1767 VA
Hi Katie,
I am researching my Webb ancestors and traced them back to Cyrus who's father is supposed to be Abel in TN that only notes my cousin has is he married Jane in Union SC in 1802. Anyways it's uncanny that Charles married Catherine Stribling at the same place in 1802. I just wondered what your ID is on to see if my DNA matches yours. My email is if you are willing to share that ID with me. Thanks, Connie Oh, my GGrandmother is Martha Ann Webb daughter of Elisha from AK, married Frederick Joyner and moved to TN. I know that family has an Abel and Elisha but my GGGrandfather Elisha was Elisha A not Elisha B. And with Abel married to a Jane it doesn't exactly match.

Hi Kathie,
Thank you very much for sponsoring some of the memorials I'm taking care of.
The Echo 2/3 Marines Virtual Cemetery is where I remember several of my friends that died in Vietnam.

I'm so glad to hear you are on the mend. Any surgery these days is worrisome due to hospital borne infections! Take care and get back to the piles of paper when you can. We ALL have them.

I added a photo of Elliott Gay on his memorial and noticed your notes that you are a relative of his. His wife Edna Allenbach's mother, Bertha Maurer Allenbach was a half sister of my great grandfather, Paul Rolland Maurer. So we are shirt tail cousins. Have you read Elliott Gay's book of the history of the Palouse country "Yesterday and the Day Before"?
