I will always gladly provide proof on any corrections I suggest, just ask by leaving me a message below.

RE: Lulu Frances Parker Dryer Bennett
I am just sorry I didn't find it. If there is a headstone it must be very worn and difficult to read. The cemetery itself isn't very large so I was able to walk all over it this afternoon and search for headstones.

RE: Hello
I don't find any Louisa Wade. I think you have her confused with Luretha Wade Graybill, who died in Toledo, Ohio and is listed on this site. She and Matilda both married Graybills, but I don't find a Louisa who did. I think we are back to 9 children, once you add Lewis. I am tying to get them linked and have sent edits but it might take awhile. Pam

RE: Hello
I don't have Louisa, and you forgot Lewis. So that's ten kids.

I am helping Lois on the John Wade and Mary Hudson Wade memorials. I came up with 9 pretty definite kids so far born to them. I think at least the first 3 she has listed are suspect, or the dates are wrong for their births. Does that fit with your research? Thanks, Pam

RE: George L McDonald 56124930
Carol: Yes he was my uncle, he died before I was born. I lost two uncles in the war and always heard the stories. I also was also a journalist and I live in Alaska where George died.

He was on his way home from being stationed in the Aleutians. A small group of about 16 solders from Fort Rich in Alaska went to Seward to catch the SS Yukon to Seattle. Most of the passengers were civilians. It was a large storm and not far from Seward the steamship ran aground on a rocky cliff. The solders, including my uncle strung ropes to shore and started offloading the crew and passengers to the beach. The waves were crashing on the ship. Through the night, they got everyone off the ship, and right then the ship broke in half and most of the solders were lost into the sea, including uncle George. They were heroes. At day break the rescue ships arrived and rescued the people off the small beach.

(note: my other uncle, Alfred August Schafer was also lost at sea when his sub, the Dorado was accidentally sunk by friendly forces near Cuba, it was never found)

photo request for Ocean View
Ocean View Burial Park, owned by Diginity Memorial, is a privately owned cemetery. Dignity Memorial will not give information to a third party, you must be a relative. They feel that they could be sued for release of private information. I have the email to prove this!!!!!
If you contact their office (through email) and request their location I would take a photo for you. They would be willing to do a lookup if the request came from a family member. If you cannot figure out your connection, say you are a cousin.
Once you have the location just enter it into the memorial page and it will show on the photo request.
Thank you,

George Hirth
I went to Woodland Cemetery today and could not find George Hirth anywhere. Is there a chance that George's name is George Jacob Hirth? If so then there is a large Stone for him and his wife Catherine. the Birthdate for him is Mar.2,1827 died Apr. 7, 1911. Dates are so close that's why I think it is George Jacob Hirth. Let me know if it is and I will post the stone. Ken Benner
