Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born & live in Central Washington State. I had thought that my family was small but that has not been the case. Genealogy has taken me places that I could never have imagined. My family line includes Kobernik, Daily/Dailey, Bishop, Krider/Crider, Monninger, Foutz, Southward/Southwood, Swearingen, Hainline/Hanlein, Miller/Mueller, Guy, Waggoner, Ralls, Hart, Drews/Drefs & Griep. My Kobernik line comes from Germany (now Poland) and the others mostly from Fulton Co, IL; PA; MD; & VA.
I enjoy working on my family but also helping others to locate their ancestors. In 2012 I took photos of most of the graves at Terrace Heights Memorial Park, Yakima, WA. (A few of the temps cannot be read).
Please let me know if anything needs to be corrected, transferred (if not my family) or removed. You have permission to use any grave stone that I have posted. Happy Genealogy Hunting!
P S - If you are trying to find someone that is at Terrace Heights Memorial Park in Yakima you can now go to
and type in the name, etc. One thing I noticed, however, that a number of them have the same month and day on the birth and death day. It is probably either the birth or death date but not both. The years are probably correct.

Hough & Houghton Sites
Joan, Thanks for the beautiful photos on the above sites. They look great--I'm getting so many more updates on the sites in Terrace Heights since I started this last October, 2016. To date, my records indicate that I have added over 6,100 sites in the last year. I am happy to report that Administration has deleted the sites for Mont Chambers & his wife that were moved into Terrace Heights after seeing my sites there. I am constantly looking for duplicates moved in after seeing our sites there. All these people have to do is delete their sites & ask for a transfer of my sites before moving their sites in. I guess they just don't get the message. Have a great weekend, Richard.

Thank you!
Thank you for taking the photos of my grandparents headstones. I live in Poulsbo, WA and I don't get over to Yakima very often any more. I really appreciate you taking the time and effort to do this.

Thank you so much for the headstone photo for Ruth Paquin and also getting one of Leonard. Now I can create a memorial for him. They were the aunt and uncle of my late husband.
