Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been so fortunate to find people, along my journey, that have helped me with ancestry information, tips, leads to new places to look, corrections where I have erroneous information , etc. that I feel taking photos for Find A Grave is a tiny way that I can say THANK YOU and pay it forward.

I urge you to use ANY photos that I have taken on your tree or anyway you wish. I believe they are YOUR relatives and I have just been the messenger to connect you. Add the photos anytime and anywhere!

RE: Oatfield, Pomeroy, Gaines
Oatfields at PM? Yes, a list would be great. Thanks!

Oatfield, Pomeroy, Gaines
Outstanding photos, as always, Carolyn. The Oatfield memorials have particular meaning to Milwaukie researchers and I was glad, with your help, to add to that family's Find A Grave presence. I'm sure they're also represented in MPC.

What to say about the Pomeroy urn? My goodness, it looks as though it's in a remote, forgotten corner of the mausoleum! Cobwebs galore, etc. It must have been a challenge to get to it.

Thank you so much, Carolyn. I always look forward to your pictures with genuine anticipation.

Huntington, Goodwin
Thank you for the terrific pictures, Carolyn. One of Elmer Goodwin's granddaughters asked me to do some research on the family, and she'll be pleased to see the photo. The interment location was previously unknown to the heirs.

I'm afraid all the info I have on Wilson & Betsy is from Find A Grave itself. I have been trying to extend some lines for distant cousins. I will keep an eye out for any additional info, but for now I have nothing more than what others have reported on here.

Schenz, Viganego, Pope

My apologies for sending you on a wild goose chase with the Pope markers --- the words "vault interment" on death certificates can usually be relied on to indicate actual burials, so I'm not sure what happened. Sorry!

Schenz and Viganego look terrific. The gold embossing on the crypt markers is quite beautiful, but I imagine it's challenging to get good images when the marker face is polished. Much appreciated.

Hugs to you, and give your trusty camera a little well-deserved smooch from me!

Woodcock, Couch
The Woodcock crypt marker is one of the more unusual ones I've seen for awhile. It's very artistically rendered, and quite beautiful. I must visit that section of the mausoleum during the next Open House.

Your photos spoil us ---- you make it seem so effortless. Never a mention of the aching back, twisted ankles, bone-chilling cold, sweltering heat, and other conditions that present challenges to your work. Now THAT'S devotion to duty!
