I transfered Mrs. McDonald to you, Mary Lou...the cemetery called me this morning to say she's not anywhere in Fairview so now we don't know where she is other than "ashes returned to New Mexico." Hope your Christmas ~ New Year's season is going happy...with healthy and calm soon catching up!

RE: Brown's
I didn't transfer Anna McDonald yet as I'm waiting for Fairview Cemetery to let me know if her ashes are actually there. I know she's not next to Glenn Burchard as there is someone else on each side of him, but her ashes could've been put into their Rose Garden. I'll transfer her to you as soon as I know one way or the other.

RE: Family
I'll get up your family memorials, Mary Lou...and pray for your family as I've had similar health issues in my own...hugs to you!

RE: AnnaLightObit
Mary Lou ~ I did find an obituary for Anna Light and emailed it to you...seems all four children we knew about combined must've been her grandkids: John, Julia, Jeremy, & Jason; also found one for Alice Light Brown's husband with a specific cemetery so I can set up a memorial for him/them and transfer to you, but I know you already are great at doing same ~ :D

RE: Anna Light
wow about John Paul Burchard as that's the name of the witness when Joann Burchard married Donald Saucier in 1989. I have a not-very-good picture of John Burchard who lives in Hawaii and will email it to you. This seems like the same guy with two more sons by 2nd wife Diane?

RE: JohnBurchard
...still lives in Hawaii, graduated from University of New Mexico 1987 after starting there more like 1974. Has sons Jeremy in Texas and Jason in connected to Diane, but no sign of Joann.

RE: Anna Light
Are you sure John & Joann (exact spelling in marriage record and elsewhere) stayed together, Mary Lou?

I can find that John C. (Charles) Burchard, age 65, of Lubbock, Texas and Hawaii is listed as living with people named Diane (age 56), Jeremy, & Jason Burchard.

Also found a John & Joann Burchard divorced in Santa Clara, California is 1981...and then a Joann M. Burchard, born 14MAY1948, married Donald J. Saucier on 15JUN1989 in the state of Washington. One witness was named John Paul Burchard.

There is a John & Joan (spelled like that) Burchard in Connecicut.

Any of this sound familiar? I wish I could locate an obituary for Anna Light McDonald, but she died in a year and place that is not included in online records.

RE: Anna Light
Mr. Burchard's obit did not list any kin...just that a fraternal group (Elks, I think) would be in charge of his funeral and who the pallbearers would be. Do you know about how old John Burchard would be...70ish maybe?

Thomas E Legg
The birth date of 1836 for Thomas E Legg can not be correct. This would make him many years younger than his wife, Nancy Ann Purchase Legg. More likely he was born about 1785 according to census records. His daughter Mary Ann Legg Sanderson was born in 1815. All buried in the same cemetery. The grave marker is very difficult to read but it appears that it might have been misread leading to the wrong birthdate.
