Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Bradley Thomas, I live in Everett Washington, just north of Seattle. I have been searching for my ancestors since 2000 and have been amazed at the kindness of others. Find a Grave is one great example of this kindness.
My Thomas line comes from Red Bank, Armstrong County, Pennsylvania moving to Isabella County, Michigan and then to Washington State. My mother's side of the family (Phillips) come from Pickens County, Alabama, then to Calhoun County, Mississippi, and then through Texas to Coleman County where my great grandfather took a cattle train to the Rosebud area of Montana.
My mother was raised in Forsyth, Montana and my dad was raised in Tacoma, Washington where I grew up. I have French Canadians (LaCross and Perrault); English (Goodales); Danish (Sorensen); German (Maier/Hoffman) all ending up in Michigan and Minnesota. I am happy to share any information and I have a family site at

RE: Laura Phillips Headstone
You are most welcome, I love to find headstones for families that may otherwise not see where there families are buried. Most of my family on my Moms side are buried in Belgium, and there are no pictures or records.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family Brad.

I filled your request yesterday, but did not like the pictures (and the omission of one) so I went back today and redid them and have posted them on the website...

Hello Brad,

I took the pictures, but the credit for figuring this mystery out goes to Jane Sommer, who kept at the research until she found some clues, which eventually, after months, led us to this finding. Many years ago, records were not required to be kept. Without Jane's knowledge, as a former records keeper, that she is now teaching me, no one would have ever figured this out, and I truly believe this.

It was a productive day Sat. as we solved a few other puzzles from this cemetery.

I am very happy that we could do this for you. It was quite a trail to follow.

Lo Marie, Monroe, Mi.

There is no burial recorded nor a grave marker in Woodland Cemetery for Ruth Cooper. (At the present time, I am the one working on searching old burials for Woodland Cemetery).

Dr Luke H. Cooper Memorial# 93488277
There is not a grave marker for Dr. Luke Cooper. (I recently assigned a burial site for Luke Cooper next to his wife (Sarah d. Oct 08 1898)
while looking for the burial sites of all Civil War Soldiers that are buried in Woodland Cemetery).

RE: thanks fr the photos
You are welcome. There is also a grave for Daniel Webster Phillips, son of D. B. & S. E. Phillips in the same row. He is a sibling to the others. I will create a monument and transfer it to you if you wish. Do you know why these children died so young? Times were hard back then. Steve
