Gravestone Photo Permission
Thank you for photographing the gravestone of Frances Alford in Saint Marys Episcopal Churchyard. I appreciate it, especially since she was the aunt of one of our members.

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of Rhode Island Obituaries, where her obituary is included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, GPoppa [or your name if you prefer]

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)

RE: Amanda (Bird) Grant
She is listed as Amanda L. Bird at the Oxford Index online:

If the link does not work, the preview text they show is:
"...founder of the retail store chain named for him, was born William Thomas Grant in Stevensville, Pennsylvania, the son of William T. Grant and Amanda L. Bird. After failing as the owner of a small flour mill there, his father moved the family back to his native Massachusetts when Grant was about five years old. After the tea shop he owned in Fall River also failed, he supported his family with jobs as a salesman around the Boston area. Despite the family’s meager income, Grant’s thrifty mother managed to keep her three children in school."

RE: Evelyn Borden Read
I hear you but it was not unusual for woman to have late age births. Remember there was no birth control and even though women would go through menopause, pregnancy was a fact. So do not rule out the possibility of late age pregnancy. Some day I will gather the evidence of this family and share with you. Thank you for answering my message. Betty

Evelyn Borden Read
Not sure what is not matching with this person, Evelyn Borden Read 111123843, but I have her parents as Joseph Borden 1762-1843 and Susannah Church 1765-1848. Evelyn is married to George W. Read 1808-1887 married on 21 Dec 1841.

Does this not coincide with your material?

Patrick Rankin # 72188845
I believe that Ellen K Rankin, # 148319307 who is listed on Patrick Rankin's grave stone is another spouse of his and not his daughter. Her name was Ellen Kirkwood Rankin. This is why there is a dividing line above her name. Source: Patrick married Ellen Kirkwood on 10 Nov 1896 in Fall River, Bristol, Massachusetts about 2 years after the death of his first spouse. Please let me know if you agree. Richard Soto
