|Bio and Links|
Currently I am working in the Mt. View Cemetery (Oregon City) in the County Park #1 section (paupers). It has been neglected for many many years. I have unearthed and photographed some 62 headstones and marked their rows. These folks deserve to have their graves maintained as much as anyone else in the cemetery.|
I am a 6 generation Oregonian and have been doing my family genealogy since the early 70's. Back then it took months to find out one fact, today with the computer that information can be found in the blink of an eye.
Only now it seems more confusing the first thing I learned back then was to document all my information and make sure the facts were correct. Now a day's people just put anything on the internet only guessing or by family stories, making things more confusing. I am now trying to set apart family fact from fiction to keep the information correct for future generations to come.
I love doing genealogy it's a real life story..like a good book you can't put down the only thing is I will probably never know the ending or the beginning.
DO NOT COPY OR TAKE MY PHOTOS WITHOUT ASKING.
DO NOT ADD THEM TO YOUR ANCESTRY TREE.
I will not transfer my family memorials...sorry.
My memorials are family and a work in progress, adding to each one as I find family material and photos. I have traveled to Washington, California, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Kentucky doing my family research in cemeteries and historical societies. If you are family I would love to hear from you.
I do photo requests and take photos while I am in the cemetery. I like to take more than one photo of the headstone, to give you the feeling of being there and seeing the surrounding area. If you would like me to remove any of my photos just ask.
One more thing.. if I find an error on any memorial I will ask for the mistake to be corrected. If it is a duplicate that needs to be removed or the addition of the plot location. I would like all memorials to be the best they can be.

|Baxter B. Fite III||The Charles Hallams of Woodford County, Illinois|
Penny, I got your email about Charles Hallam. He obviously isn't your grandfather, but may be a great great great grandfather or perhaps even a 4th Great.
Interestly when I started working on the Hallam history 30 years ago, I found there were two Charles Hallams living in Woodford County in the later half of the 1800's. I was sure they must be related, but have never been able to prove it.
The older Charles Hallam, who was born c. 1800, was the father of William W. Hallam, who served in Co. A of the 86th Illinois. The younger Charles Hallam, who was born c 1807, I have found little information about.
Could you tell me how you are related to him? Looking forward to hearing from you again and in perhaps learning a little more about the younger Charles Hallam myself. Sincerely, Baxter

HI - For whatever reason some of the photos I have taken there I cannot turn, even though they are taken correctly upright. If you know anyone who can figure this out let me know. Karen

You are welcome for the link. I am happy you found out where her father was buried.
|Bee_Charmer||Corinna Sofranko 146819809|
Thank you for the edit suggestion to link Corinna with her father. I do not link to "burial unknown," as this negates the purpose of Find a Grave.
Once you know the final disposition of Mr. Sofrankos' remains, please update his memorial and resubmit your edit suggestion. I would be happy to process it at that time.

Thank you so much Penny for the excellent quality headstone photos, William Nefzger, Sherman Hart, Ernestine Hart, Nelle and Howard Brownwell. I especially appreciate the closeups on the dates.
