Bio and Links
Bio Photo Unless I have some way to contact you to verify, I won't make changes to memorial pages.

I got involved with genealogy in 1982 when my parents were celebrating their 50th anniversary and wanted a family reunion campout with cousins they hadn't seen for many years. Mother's father was one of 13 children who had been close while growing up, but had drifted apart. My job was to "connect the dots" as to how we were related. As many of you know, it has exploded from there.

I have been a Find a Grave member for several years, but have recently become involved in picture taking. When I get a request, I can't just take that picture, but surrounding ones.
Thank you to those who have taken pictures for me. Let me know if I can help you.
Family names I'm working with are Wallace, Isenberg, Merrell(Merrill), Berry, Scheuffele, Crowley as well as some others.

William Wishart, Woodland Cemetery
There are two pages for William Wishart that I think are for the same person. 87673380 created by Corky C on 3-30-2012 and 125729556 created by Marcialyn on 2-28-2014. Both have different amounts of information, neither has the plot, Blk-19 Lt-21 Gr-4. I am posting a picture on both, but it is only a site photo, there is no marker.

May I suggest that the two of you get together and merge the pages?

2nd wife of Otto Tod Kuhn
Corky C:

We're trying to locate the grave of Hazel Hopkins-Dunbar-Ryan-Kuhn, the second wife of Otto Tod Kuhn who is buried in Woodland Cemetery in Yolo County.

They died within 12 days of each other, so I guess I'm assuming she is buried under the name Hazel Kuhn. We know she died in Woodland because of Social Security records.

She was my wife's natural great-grandmother, and an aunt believes she photographed the site many years ago in Woodland.

Anything you might know or find would be be greatly appreciated.

E Mail Me Please
Corky thanks for the message. Could you e mail me at

If we can privately e mail it will keep it easier to see/respond and a bit more private.

We are seeking next of kin on Marion Johnson and Charles Everett Merrell and I believe you are possibly related to both. E mailing directly and/or speaking by phone will be MOST helpful.

RE: Millard Merrell
Hi Corky, How wonderful to hear from you. Yes, I believe we are cousins. My dad was Charles E Merrell, brother of Louise Barmore, and his father was Millard Clinton Merrell. Actually, I recently began genealogy and am scanning and documenting old family photos. I even have the Hood River High School graduation class photo including both Millard and of my favorites. Anyway, I will be unavailable for a couple of weeks but would love to keep in touch. I have unidentified photos. Perhaps you know some of the subjects. Feel free to contact me at Here are grave ID's for the following: Charles E Merrell (my dad) #160265947: My paternal grandmother, Edith Reisinger Merrell Downey Law Hilliard #128799410: My paternal aunt: Mildred Merrell Stocker #73761508. Hope to visit soon!

Fannie Johnson
I note on Fannie Johnson's Find A Grave memorial that you left a note calling her "grandma" I am a part of a small group of volunteers in the Portland metro area that works to upgrade/add to and correct pioneer cemetery records to the end that we find USA military veterans that do not have a grave marker. MARION JOHNSON father of Fannie Johnson Merrell is buried in Clackamas Pioneer Cemetery without a grave marker. I am working to rectify that situation BUT need contact with a next of kin. I read your Find A Grave bio and you seem the PERFECT person who might be able to help us with this task. I would very much appreciate hearing from you. My e mail is IF you would send me your phone number (I swear I am not a robot nor a scammer:) I need a NOK to move forward as it is a requirement of the Veterans Administration. I can explain all this if you'd feel comfortable sharing e mail or phone number.
