|Bio and Links|
My husband and I enjoy being photo volunteers. I use Find-A-Grave to research my family's genealogy and maintain and/or create their sites when possible. I like to include biographical sketches, family links and photos in hopes that will help others who are researching the same lines. I am researching Porter, VanPatten, Starns, Lewis, Hogg, Lawson, Kolp, Proctor, Childs, McCoy, Aplington, Bruner and more. If you see errors please let me know.|
Since 2014 I have been researching people whose unclaimed cremains are being stored at the Oregon State Hospital. After researching their lives I try to find living relatives to let them know where their family member's ashes are. I have been lucky to make many connections.

I just wanted to tell you thank you for posting the find a grave for Clara Z Purkapile. We went to get her ashes today and we will be sending her home to be buried by her parents and family in Kansas. It was a sad day with lots tears and at the same time it was a happy day that she will be going home. We would have never know that the Oregon State Hospital still had her ashes if it was not for you. I thank you and my family thanks you. Christie and family.

You or someone posted Clara Z Purkapile dated 1885-1961 # 4582 at the Oregon State Hospital In Salem Oregon. Does this mean that her ashes are still there? We were to understand that she was to have been sent home to family in Kansas.??? If you could please tell if she is still there or not and if she is, my husband would like to claim her. She is great Aunt and all of her family has passed. Can you help us out???
Thank you for your time.
