|Claire||RE: Margaret Reid|
Hi Wendy, I am trying to find more information about a Margaret Reid that was born in Augusta County Virginia in 1754 and married Hugh Reid in Abbeville District, SC in 1778 and died in Abbeville, in 1818. She was the mother of another Rebecca Reid that married a Presbyterian minister in 1812 named Dr. William Hampden Barr. Should this information sound familiar to you I'd be pleased to discuss this line.

You are welcome very much. Lincoln Memorial has about 250,000 people interred in it. And, it is quite a beautiful cemetery. We get lots of rain here but the flip side is it keeps Oregon green and beautiful.
Nebraska huh? That is neat you got to come out here. I have not been over to the Coast in quite a few years. My ex-wife loved going down the Nehalem River. It is a gorgeous drive along the river before it ends in the town of Nehalem.
I will have to check out that cemetery sometime. I was not completely fanatical about family research the last time I went to the Coast years ago. Now I am, and I would be slamming on my brakes for every cemetery I see over there. :-]
I went through Nebraska when I was a teenager. I believe it was in 1966. I was in a drum and bugle corps with all the large number of girls doing the baton twirling. I played trumpet. We won state champion drum and bugle corps two out of the tree years I was in it. One year the corps got up the money to go to the National Drum and Bugle Corps Championships in Grand Rapids, MI! That was an amazing experience. We went on a charter bus and went through WY and NE and IA. I was amazed. I have never seen so much land as flat as a pancake in my life! Coming from OR where there is hardly ANY flat ground it seems, that was something to see. There were wheat fields that would stretch from horizon to horizon in all directions as far as the eye could see and beyond! And corn fields the same way!! On the way back we missed a tornado by one day. Whew! There was a lightning storm that shot huge pitchfork bolts of lightening clear down to the ground!
I added pics per your request for the Harrington graves. Their stone is sunken quite a bit and the sun is not up very high, at its highest point this time of year. In the summer this stone would be in full sun at the time I took these pictures.
But, this is thee best time of year to get pictures here with the Fall leaves out. The Fall leaves come and go so quickly. Most days are rainy and dreary which makes it harder to enjoy the beautiful colors. Yesterday was one of those days we actually got some sun for about half the day anyway. So you got lucky on this request. You should go buy a lottery ticket. Hah. :-]

You put in a request for pictures of Francis W. "Frank" Harrington's grave. He is buried next to his wife Florence. You did not put in a request for pics of her grave.
Could you do me a favor and put in a request for her too?

to the best of my knowledge, I am not related. But the name is close to mine (Redmond).
A couple gals and I took pics of all Platte County Cemetery a couple of years ago. (Even abandoned cemetery) weeds got pretty high on some. We did some in Colfax County, Nance County, Burtler County etc. Kind of gets in your blood to take these cemetery especial the abandoned because someday the stone might be around any more. Before we took the pics (back in the 1980) a group of ladies canvas the cemetery and wrote each and every stone down on paper and if they could, they would get the list from the churches.
|JoAnn Schwartz||Thank you!|
Wendy, thanks so much for all your work at the Arborville Cemetery. It means a lot to so many.
|jan colbert||RE: Garling - Arborville|
Wendy, Thanks for your note and for all your work at the Arborville Rural Cemetery!
William Garling is my 2nd great uncle.
I have deleted the memorial I made for him.
I have been working diligently on trying to figure out how to delete the cemetery; do you know how I can accomplish this? (I have only recently begun Find A Grave, so I am just learning all the functionalities!)
Yes, I would appreciate managing my great-great uncle's memorial! Thank you.
Again, thank you for all your work. I will keep working on how to delete the cemetery!
|Jeanne K.||RE: Daniel Walker|
