William Sharwell Braunworth
It appears you're researching the Braunworth Family.

I found a William Sharwell Braunworth here on FindAGrave who died in January 2012(?) He was born in New Jersey.

RE: Sangston Memorials
Yeah, we got about 8" of snow outside my front door. Not much to do today except play around with dead people's family lines.

I hope you get some nibbles from some live people.

I love this story: Started chatting with somebody about one of the headstones I photographed. After a few e-mails between us, we discover her grandmother was my mother's Sunday School teacher - over 50 years ago! Both teacher and pupil are still living and remember each other well. :-)

And I love her family's reaction: "You found all this out from one picture of a marker?" See, ya gotta be a special kinda person to like this hobby.

RE: Sangston family
That is exactly how I feel. If you know them, whether through relations or friends, it's better for you to maintain them. Who knows who else is out there looking for them? You may find somebody who was also at the picnics. Whereas if somebody asked me about them I'd have to say "I don't know, duh uh, they are just a name on a stone to me."

That is very kind of you to offer.
I probably do have more photos and other info that I could add.
I am not a relative, but my parents were good friends with the Sangstons, we all used to go to their house every year for picnics... and I still live right here in Hopewell where both our families lived.
Transferring would make it easier for me to add info. and if any actual relatives wish to take over the memorial in the future, I will gladly do that.
Thanks again for getting in touch,
Bob Gantz

Sangston family
Looks like you added some personal photos of the Sangston family. I made entries for the three children and Elizabeth, the mother.

Would you like me to transfer these to you?

Edwin F. Small
Many thanks for the great picture you added for Edwin F. Small. I didn't realize he was a reverend. I also added the information you provided to his biography. Thanks again.

RE: Lydia Pierson #62275623
Hi-I'm willing to bet she's an Arnold, as she is on the Arnold/Pierson monument. I couldn't find any proof though to support my guess that she's an Arnold. I would imagine if you did a search for William Arnold 1808-1893, I would bet that he is Lydias brother. Just a guess. irma

Hi Bob.

I'm happy you were able to use the information I'd posted to his record on Ancestry but I would appreciate getting the credit for it. Please.
