Not a place for negative, just a place for what makes me happy 🙂

There is allot to me so it is hard to pin it all down. Basically I love my family, history and Mother Earth. All the aspects of the previously mentioned is what makes me happy and a good person. When I stray from what makes me happy I become grumpy and hard to get along with.

Below is what is rattling inside my head every day and writing it down makes me feel better.

  • Cemetery Caretaker
    • I am the caretaker for two Masonic Cemeteries in Yamhill County Oregon. I share the day to day goings’ ons’ of these cemeteries on the below Facebook page.
    • Both of these cemeteries take up much of my time during the nice weather seasons of Oregon. Mowing, trimming, vacationing gopher and ground squirrels etc. Every year I work at receiving Grants. I have been lucky so far with being awarded close to 10k. We will what the future holds.
    • Pauper Cemetery MAIN WEBSITE
      • Plot Map of Graves
      • The Pauper Cemetery which is also called the Pottersfield Cemetery or Poor Farm Cemetery is a small cemetery within the McMinnville Masonic Cemetery. This Pauper Cemetery which I prefer to call it has around 15 known graves. Some are partially marked but all are 100% unknown.
      • St. Barnabas Episcopal Church has adopted this little cemetery and cleans it every year.

  • Masonic Research at the Grand Lodge of Oregon
    • Since 2017 I have been honored to be the Chairman of the Library and Museum. I found out my true calling later in my life. I wish I pursued the occupation as an archivist and preservationist. Unfortunately I didn’t figure that out until my early 50’s. So I call myself an ‘amateur archivist and preservationist’. I get to touch history every day and decide how to preserve its history and archive it properly using proper techniques that I learn along the way.

  • Yamhill County Cyclopedia Page – YC-Pedia
    • My YC-Pedia page is for the histories that are not widely known within the county. I have always collected these sources from articles to interviews. Sometimes I copy documents or just annotate my notes on something interesting that I have never heard of. Many interesting tid – bits on this page.

  • Oregon Commission on Historic Cemeteries OCHC
    • In 2022 I began a new path. I submitted my resumé for a commissioner position with the Oregon Commission on Historic Cemeteries for the Willamette Valley District and was offered this volunteer position. This is a very exciting new journey and I am enjoying it greatly.
