My goal is to help others and photograph cemeteries that I visit. Due to Mother Nature and the elements of time, even stone can erode. Why not preserve what we can for others to share in the future? If I am fulfilling a request, I will try to add memorials for all people I find with the same last name or all that are interred in the same general area - this little detail can be a jackpot to someone's family tree.|
Please feel free to contact me if you would like to manage your relative's memorial. I am not related to most and would like to see memorials in the hands of family - please use the edit tab on the top of the memorial. I am human so if you find an error on a memorial, please let me know so I can get it corrected. Most of my work is done later in the evening and my eyes can overlook things.

|CryptoGram||RE: Patterson Bush|
Ironically, Lynn, just this week, a man was helping me AGAIN with the first ancestors I ever cared about: my Swedes in Door County, Wisconsin. Unfortunately, it was to confirm that we'd probably never find their exact graves as records for their cemetery are lost...even ones as recently as the 1950s. A 3rd-cousin and I tracked them...read (as well as I could) many Swedish records back when the Internet was dial-up...to the right cemetery (later got death records to confirm)...then PICTURES ~ of them and their home, which is still standing in awesome shape.
Also this week, someone posted pix of others in this same family...in Chicago...for officer whom, with his partner, where first policemen to arrive at scene of St. Valentine's Day Massacre (got pic of that, too, some years ago). We'd been previously told that records for HIM were not located in cemetery, either...but now here finally came confirmation!
BUT 20 years ago, I did not even know their names.
The historic side of Fairview of Albuquerque is mostly in poor shape with lots of vandalism and stickers for "grass," but has MANY "celebrity" people...most well-known is probably Sen/Gov Edmund G. Ross who cast the deciding vote not to oust President Andrew Johnson, and was later governor of New Mexico.
I have a friend who's writing a book on historic Fairview. When I met her, she was into learning exactly who was buried where, while I considered (still do) old Fairview more of a community as so many interred there knew each other when living.
Must be VERY careful digging there, tho, as many who came here because of TB and died where put there, and TB remains in the soil nearly indefinitely.
Anyway, it was a privilege to get to the bottom of where your Bush/Patterson people here are, and may you continue to have successes finding your family...never give up; the answers are yet to be found!
Some from GA told me about it.

Hi Lynn! I don't really bother with calling the cemetery offices to locate a particular grave, especially since I don't think Highland Home Cemetery has an office. Also I wouldn't know who to call! George Barron has wrote a cemetery transcript for Highland Home Cemetery along with the plot coordinates for each grave. It was last revised in 2007. That's how I was able to locate the gravestones you wanted photographed. Anna and Lucille's husband are not buried in that cemetery. Since you gave me Anna's death year, I looked up to see if she had an obituary in the Jamestown Sun Obituary Index. She has a very short obit. It gave her country of origin (Russia), the number of children left behind (4), where she died (Gackle Hospital), and where she was interred (Gackle Cemetery). I created her memorial and transferred that over to you. As for John Doone, from Lucille's obit he must have preceded her in death. Since you didn't give me a death year, I looked him up in the obit indexes and cemetery transcript indexes here at the library and came up with nothing. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful in finding his final resting place.

I cannot express adequately my gratitude for your efforts "above and beyond" to find and clarify the burial location for this pair. The original researcher got it wrong, and I appreciate your efforts to help me get it right.
