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.

re: Hernandez's
Hello Joan,

Thank you for the excellent photos of all of their headstones. Butch Hernandez was my best friend growing up in Yakima. The other Hernandez's are his brothers. I knew all of them very well.

Joan, Regarding your note on the Mausoleum, if you can't photograph the inside then just place a photo of the outside of the Mausoleum on the memorial. I don't resell photos of photographs placed on my memorials nor do I place photos on my memorials to other websites. Thanks for the Rogers photos--they look great. R.
