Hi Jim,

We just launched the Elements Team within the Global Cemeteries Project and we noted that you were interested in joining. Could you look over the Ground and Data Team pages and let me know which one you would like to help with?

Hi Jim

Merge of Duncan-1983 into Dunkin-495 appears to be appropriate but other Mgrs on Dunkin-495 should be messaged because of (attached children) and who is willing to take on the cleanup work and other merges. (beware of FAG info) https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Welborn-548 https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Snell-2717 9 children were listed in his Will to wit, Betsy Laughlin, John Dunken, Peggy Laughlin, Joseph Dunkin, Polly Hignite, Sally Laughlin, Ann Martin, Faithful Lock and Elenor Campbell.

Hi Jim,

I sent you a message a week ago about the new-look Global Cemeteries Project but have not yet heard back from you. If you would like to continue in the project, please can you PM me your team(s) selections and your e-mail address for the Google group.

If I don’t hear back from you by this time next week I’ll assume you no longer wish to be in the project at this time.

Many thanks,

Susie :-)

Leader, Global Cemeteries Project

Hi Jim,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,


Leader, Global Cemeteries

How do I join and add photos and surveys of Mount Hebron Cemetery and other cemeteries? I saw you started the Cemetery Project for Mount Hebron.

The name of Daisy Dean is given in a Ewbank genealogy as a daughter of Dora Ewbank. An obituary of Clara Dean Berry also includes the "Dean" name. This was sent to me by Barbee Hodgkins of The Dalles, Oregon; she received it from Anne M. Ward of Husum, WA who collected it from the White Salmon (Wash.) "Enterprise".
I notice that you grew up in White Salmon, WA and belong to a Berry family.

My GGrandfather, George Ewbank, had a daughter, Dora Belle Ewbank (Ewbank-19). Dora and her family lived in White Salmon and elsewhere north of the Columbia. I wonder whether you knew these people.

Thanks for adding all the great info on https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Berry-10074
