I have the Orphan Train book which is where I got my reference source. Unless Find A Grave has a category for adopted or foster children to make linking possible, I don't see how you can link non-biological children and keep the facts accurate. One day his REAL parents might be reveiled. Slim chance though.

How does Find A Grave handle orphan train riders? Annias Stelly was his foster father not his biological father. From what I've read, he was never formally adopted either. The names of his biological parents are (and probably always will be) unknown.

Shiner cemeteries
I thought there were only 2 also, then SPJST made 3 but I've discovered here on Find A Grave there is also Shiner Brethren, Shiner Sons of Hermann plus Bluebonnet the black cemetery and another Hispanic somewhere. There might be even more I don't know about. There also could be unlisted country cemeteries I'm unaware of.

Hi,
I did a quick look yesterday for the grave. I didn't find anything and she is defintely not with the Bertha Grossman linked to her memorial in that family plot or 2 other Grossman family plots. I saw no Jurek at all. Are you sure she's in Shiner SPJST?

Deleted my entry. Thanks. I don't know how you keep up with that stuff. I am almost finished with what I can do with the family for this 'round.' Am working on the father's instead of the mother's side now. At least I can pronounce the names. Judy

Worthington obit - burial in Rock Creek Cemetery DC
Hi -

I have passed this obit for Rebecca Britton Worthington onto the memorial owner, but thought you might be interested:

Date: Thursday, January 12, 1939 Paper: Evening Star (Washington (DC), District of Columbia) Page: 12

Mrs. Worthington, 97, Widow of District Leader, Dead - Daughter of Classmate Of Grant Recalled Lincoln's Death
---
Mrs. Rebecca Britton Worthington, widow of Charles Worthington, a member of one of the city's oldest families, died yesterday at her home in the Toronto Apartments in her 97th year.
Mrs. Worthington had been a resident of Washington since the Civil War, and one of the keenest pleasures of her later years was to describe the historic events she had witnessed here during a long and active life to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Mrs. Worthington was born at Tampa, Fla., while her father Capt. Forbes Britton, a classmate of Gen. Grant, was in Florida with an Army unit helping to put down an uprising of the Seminole Indians.
The former Miss Britton was living in Texas, where her father was stationed, when she met Mr. Worthington while he was on a hunting trip. Mr. Worthington married her in 1860. The couple planned to live in the West, but changed their minds when the Civil War broke out.
Planning to return to Washington, Mr. Worthington found the usual routes blocked by the embattled armies. He took his bride to Mexico. Later they sailed for New York from Tampico in a small sailing vessel, which was four weeks at sea.
The couple arrived in Washington just before the assassination of President Lincoln. Mrs. Worthington retained a clear memory of this tragedy and other momentous events in the history of the young and growing Capital.
Mr. Worthington died about 20 years age. His family came here from Annapolis and settled in Georgetown before the District of Columbia was laid out as a Capital City.
Mrs. Worthington is survived by two daughters, Miss Eliza P. Worthington and Mrs. Elizabeth Trescott, both of Washington; two grandchildren, Mrs. Philip Torrey of Philadelphia and Mrs. G. Wade Martin of Washington and three great-grandchildren.

Waters S. Davis
Thank you for the update on Water S. Davis' memorial. I added the update and have transferred his memorial to your care. My aunt married his grandson, Wymond Davis in El Paso in 1948. I see you've done alot of work on findagrave for the Davis Family and thought you would like to maintain his memorial as well. Thank you again for sending the update.

RE: Saint John Berchman, Cankton, Louisiana.
Thanks. I posted 4 pictures and I love all of them. This is such a unique little church. The first picture is a wonderful place just to sit on the bench and offer up a prayer for all who are buried in this cemetery.

I had to piece that one together. A wreck wiped out a few graves and destroyed a crypt. mos t of the markers were scattered around the ground. Glad I could find it for you
