Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello, I am a retired military Veteran. I served in the 60's, 70's and 80's, twice in Vietnam. I was very proud to serve my Country, and it bothers me to see the way our Government Leaders are leaning in the treatment of our wounded Veterans today.
I worked for the Boeing Co,(after retiring from the military) until forced to retire on disability in early 2000.
I have and enjoy classic cars, it has become my passion.

I would like to let anyone know that you may use any photo's I post on Find-A-Grave, can be used as you see needed. John

Picture of Grave and a Marker

Thank you so much for the Picture of John and Muriel Kallas and the Picture of the Marker for Earl and Laura (South) Filkins-Kalles.

I really do appreciate the time and effort you've put into these findings and now have a mystery solved-as I'd been searching for Laura' Place of Burial and nothing seemed to pan out for quite some time. I'm so grateful for this information.

May be some day I'll find out who that Frank Minnick is that's Buried near Laura.

Thanks so much,

Betty (South) Young

RE: George Laurance Dye 116095790

Thank you for contacting me regarding George L.Dye's first wife. I know of her. I met her 3 daughters and even some of their children. Unfortunately, I know only what I have found on-line for her. I have possessions of George's that I would like to pass to his descendants, but have had no luck finding them.
Good Luck in your research.

Hello: Thank you so much for your photos of Carries headstone. They add so much to the site, and I particularly appreciate the two exposures. Although it is etched in stone that she was born in 1840, it was actually 1843! Best, Jeanne.

Thank you so very much for the photo of the headstone, especially for cleaning it. It looks lovely.
Hopefully Cora's will look better after the rain.

I did remove the note of using photos. I had written that when first starting up four years ago and had forgotten all about it.

Thank you again.
