Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love cemeteries!! That might sound strange to some people, but it is true! When I was a young girl not only did we visit our family cemeteries, my Dad would take us into a random cemetery when we were on vacation. He would teach us to read the headstones and get a picture of the history.
Now when I travel I do the same. I am also hunting for my people! My maternal families are Smith, Addy, Belew, Caraway, Joiner, Johnson. Locations are VA, NC, SC, GA, AL & MS. My paternal families are Lesak, Viduna, Broz, Vesely. Locations are Chicago, IL & Czech Republic.
I have no problem sharing my photos of graves, feel free to use them in your family tree and research. If I have created a memorial and you are a relative...let me know, would be glad to transfer, unless I am also a family member.

Headstone Details
In Section 25 Lot 232 Grave 1
There is a obelisk marker for the Cejka Family
I was there in 2000 visiting - I live in California - and was using an old 35 mm film camera. Thought I took good photos, but when they were developed I was unable to read the inscriptions on the marker.
Any possible way on your next visit you could photograph the various inscriptions and photo plaques?
Just e-mail to me?
It would be appreciated very much

Sydney (Sidney) Jane H. Nickell Drummond
Ginny, Correct information regarding Sydney Drummond is in the profile I created for her in the Auberry Grove/ Hayes Cemetery in Daviess Cty, MO. #91834234

I personally took the photos of her full-length body stone covering her grave.

My family members and I first located Auberry Grove in 2012 and then I once again visited the cemetery this summer (2014). In just the two short years, time and weather has taken a toll on the headstones and markers located in the cemetery.

I made note of her second memorial #74688947.

I believe that when her husband died - James Patrick Drummond, family members buried him in the Jamesport Masonic Cemetery and added her dates on his stone. I don't believe there was any possible way to remove the body stone covering her grave and moving her body to Jamesport.

Thanks for the interest.

Say, Thanks Ginny for finding Paul & Charlotte in Riverview in South Bend and providing those photographs !!! I've updated their sites.
I should have guessed they might be in the Family Plots there, as some other of the family is there. But they had lived in Michigan for so many years I was assuming their burial was there.
Paul was a direct 3rd Cousin to my Father (a Third once removed form me). I hadn't seen them or been in contact for many years, since the 70s.
Thanks for clearing up the mystery.
You're a Super Lady !!

Hi Ginny,
You, being a distant cousin to my grandma Winnie Gulley Hawkins, makes you a distant cousin to me also. I accept and love all cousins no matter how far distant that they are. Thanks for letting me know that you have read my memories.

Mary Specht Memorial
Hi Ginny,

The edit you suggested is done.

Would you like me to transfer Mary Specht to you?

I note that you are generous about transfers. (I am too!) But I am not requesting one. I'm not related, just curious, and transfer is not necessary, esp. if you don't mind making any updates or links I come across as I research. :-)

George Blaiklock
Ginny, I just emailed you a burial record via from
"Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967" for George Blaiklock 96795195, so you could judge for yourself. I think this death/burial record must be for the George Blaiklock, architect, and a few sites online recording his work and/or biography also give it. And yet the stone is different. Well, you can do as you think best. I am not related to these people--just became kind of fascinated with the names and lives of those buried in this cemetery when we vacationed in Quebec last year. You're a cemetery lover too, so I'm sure you understand my interest.

Good luck in your own research!

Thanks! I just noticed I forgot to give your her maiden name, so I just put in another edit!
