Tualatin woman helps rehab Civil War veteran’s grave in Stafford

This past summer Tualatin resident Shirley Herrick embarked on what might seem like an unusual project: photographing every grave at the Robert Bird Cemetery in the Stafford area. Yet anyone who has visited the website Find a Grave would understand exactly what Herrick was up to. In keeping with its namesake, the site serves as a virtual database for gravesites around the world and relies on volunteers like Herrick to keep that archive growing.
