My father's family (Fred and Myrtle Boyd) moved from Drakes Creek, Madison County,Arkansas during the Great Depression, picking crops, ended up in California and Oregon. Fred and Myrtle lived In a small house on my parents' property. Together with my parents they raised a large vegetable garden. They raised chickens for eggs and meat. We had rabbits for a while. I remember many fond memories with my grandparents. I spent many nights overnight, roasting marshmallows, hotdogs in the fireplace. Grandma Boyd would make root beer floats. Many uncles, aunts, cousins would come to visit and as a child, I would play with them.My paternal grandfather, Fred Boyd, trained dogs for hunting, search and rescue and seeing eye dogs for the blind. My cousins would play hide and seek and have the dogs find us in the woods using a scent from our clothes, etc.

My mother's family (Karjala), immigrated from Finland, owned a working farm in Quincy, Oregon, outside Clatskanie, OR. The family also fished in the nearby Columbia River. There is a nearby community graveyard, that was largely neglected, at last time I visited. I visited there with my mother's family on "Decoration Day",(aka Memorial Day), bringing flowers we grew and wild flowers. My mother, Elvie Sophie Karjala Boyd always grew beautiful flowers.

Hi, I am going to fix

I am not sure what you were trying to do, but, her maiden name was correct, Rumbough, her maiden name is NOT Bessie. Please be careful that the changes you make to profiles are correct.

Welcome, Kristine. Once you figure out your way around Wikitree, please consider joining the cemetery project. You could just take photographs if you like, but it would be even better if you have the time to set up a cemetery free space page and make profiles for the people you find, attaching their grave photo. I'd be happy to help if and when you decide to do it. You can find the project under the Find tab (upper right) - Projects- Global cemeteries - then to whatever country you are in. Have fun!
Welcome to Wikitree! Thank you for offering to volunteer building the world's largest family tree!
