Regarding SUNNYSIDE on Signal Hill - - Photo requests posted without location data are suspect since they might be for Forest Lawn on San Antonio at Cherry (which was called Sunnyside prior to 1978). I have a liaison position with management, and they are good about giving me sites. This arrangement is necessary because of past abuses of good will. I will post locations for the requests in the "problem notice," and maintain currency. Your cooperation assures accurate data and a satisfactory conclusion.|

I'll transfer anybody but close family if you have a good story - or even a bad lie. You can be adopted, or the ex; I don't care.
íLa vida es demasiado corta como para objetar - Life's too short to quibble!
Please use any photos associated with your loved ones' sites as you desire; they belong to you. If you ask for permission I'll know you can't read.
A note on why some 'souls' evade discovery: Think about it; there's little entertainment for the majority. One game everyone really gets into is to hide while we seek. They hold real still, and don't give each other up; hilarious watching us bumble about with growing frustration. Using nicknames instead of real ones, omitting dates, or the ultimate - not paying for their marker!

Earliest ancestors Philadelphia 1697 on my father's side - My mother's side arrives in 1749 & 1751. Latest kin here by 1777.
In 1685 a Strode grandfather helped Monmouth's attempt to overthrow James II; and in 1745 another grandpa, this time a Grant, marched with Charles Stuart against George II - both causes failed utterly. Strode's son lost his purchase in England and fled eventually to Philadelphia (aboard a misnamed vessel in which he and his wife perished and his orphans prospered).
The strappan Sawney was transported, indentured, got a pass - then joined the opportunistic hoards flooding through Cumberland Gap.
Or not. That whole pack has enough romantic burnishing to fill several Janice Holt Giles novels.
I'm NOT related to Daniel Boone of pioneer fame - I'm related to two of his sisters (5th great-grandmothers - Mary's grandson, Luke, wed Elizabeth's granddaughter, Mary Sanders).
I'm NOT related to Gen. John J. Pershing - but his uncle, J.S. Pershing (by another wife of our common sire, J.M. Pershing) is my great-grandfather.
NOT connected to Wm. Jennings Bryan at all - former Secretary of State and thrice Presidential candidate, a dedicated public servant and son of a dedicated public servant, who once lent law books to the aforementioned Mr. Pershing.
My direct lineage seems to have had an aversion to military service but for a maternal great-grandpapa who got himself wounded by the defenders of Vicksburg.
Well, too, there was that earlier trouble in the late mid-1700s; a few grandpas mixed it up in the Ohio Valley, rode with Geo. Rogers Clark and the boys - other scuffles with the Tories in the Carolina and Kentucky hills. Most got pensions for their efforts (them who weren't Loyalists). Myself - I spent three years in the US Army working for the Security Agency.

Thank you for taking the photo so quickly. Your photo proves he did add the e to his name, while his parents did not. The Calif death index has it with an e as well.
|Melanie Mann||Clell H Besgrove|

Thank you for your persistence in locating James' grave. I was actually going by a record that I found on ancestry.com. Canada, War Graves Registers that listed the location as I indicated. Of course the record was from 1929, so maybe the location numbering system has changed since then?? Anyway, I do thank you.
|Suzanne Grace Gossman Tanenbaum||Gavlick & Merrill|
Thank you, thank you, thank you for the photos of Gavlick and Merrill. They are fantastic. Much appreciated.
Thank you so much for the images of Alta Franklin's final resting place. I appreciate you taking time to help me learn more about an ancestor.

Thank you for finding my great grandmother! The pictures are great, and helpful for when I visit.
|God bless you & your loved ones, Cindy||Grace Templeton|
Thank you so much for your incredibly fast response to my photo request. I was astonished to find it filled so quickly. I would like to request your permission to use the close up of Aunt Grace's marker in my Family Tree database that syncs with ancestry.com. I would be very pleased to give you credit for the photo of course.
|Corine Hardman||Alfred Turner|
