|Bio and Links|
I spend most of my days with my dead ancestors, learning about the lives they lived. Even though I've never met them, I feel like they are with me.|
I am very interested in the history of people and cemeteries. I enjoy visiting cemeteries and looking at gravestones, and trying to find out what the people were like and where they came from. I think it would be fascinating to know where they lived and where their descendents are now. I have a passion for genealogy and I am currently looking for my own ancestors from Chicago and upstate New York, as well as Norway. :)
If you are related to anyone listed in the memorials that I have created(if I'm not related to them), especially those in Oregon, I will be happy to transfer them to you. I am also willing to add or correct any information you may have about the people in these memorials.

My name is Charles Kimes and Paul Vincent Kimes was my great uncle. I am trying to find family members to share some information. I am in Oregon from today 6/14 until 6/17 and would love to try to meet some but most of the information is unavailable. I noticed you had posted pictures of the grave and wondered if you may be a cousin?
|Lynne ||RE: Relations|
Hi, nice to contact you too. I have an old family bible printed in 1825 Cooperstown NY. Writing barely visable on the first page says Zacheus May 1849. That was my 5x great grandfather your Lucinda Carpenters Father. Samuel Thompson Curtis and Mary Curtis Foote were her siblings. Zacheus and Lucinda Curtis had 5 girls and one boy. I am trying to find information on the other 3 girls. Do you have any information?

Are you related to Anson and Lucinda Carpenter from Columbia Co. NY? They are my many time great aunt and uncle. Lucinda was my 4x great grandfather's sister.

|Linda Magley||RE: Mary Waldmann|
I'm very happy this helps you ! Did you happen to notice there is an Otto Olson in Rose Hill, I don't know if he is the brother. I have a Grand Uncle at Rose Hill, so I have to post when I see things from there. Good Luck to you!
|Thomas Van Tassel||RE: Carpenters|
You're very welcome. I have some others you were looking for but the pictures aren't so good. The sun was at a bad angle. I'll put them in for now but I'm determined get back there soon and get better ones. It's a pretty interesting place.
|Ace||Cregar & Bachman Photos|
Hi! Photos posted for them, but there was no individual marker for them, and their names are not on the Cregar monument.
On the back side of the Cregar monument is the following:
1. In the center of the monument the word "SIMMONS."
2. Harry I. Cregar, 1899 - 1964 and "DAD"
3. J. Odell, 1887 - 1939 and "FATHER"
If you would like photos of these, please post the photos requests and I will add the photos.
