Thank you very much for adding the photo for Lucille Inez Rigby Warner Turner Hawk Caskey. She dropped her final last name. Do you mind if I put the picture on my Ancestry.com family tree? It would be greatly appreciated.

|lygeia ferragallo||My grandfathers memorial|
Thank you so very much Chelsea. I had been searching for my grandfather. Confirmation of his death (date/place) brought me here. A lovely surprise!
My grandfather passed when my father was only three. And now that I know where his memorial is, I will visit it the next time I'm in the Bay Area. Lay a flower at his site and give my respects.
Sending much love,
|Jason Hebert||RE: Etienne Hebert|
My Grandfather is Antoine Hebert. I visited Port Royal some years ago. I look to visit there again soon. The first time I was there I stayed at a bed and breakfast that was a block away from the Acadian Cemetery.
I am sorry to say it is nothing but a grassy field. But the locals there now are seeking to put a large grave marker on the land. I do not know if they were successful or not. I can not tell you what a pleasure and honor it was to visit the land of our grandfathers. it is very pretty.
I just sorry that land was stolen from us. I do not know what information you seek. Nor do I know a lot I know a little but not too much. I guess the one thing I always wanted to know where did out grandfathers live when they lived in france. And who was their grandfathers.
I sort of got some leads but nothing can be confirmed. I also suspect Louis Hebert was their great uncle. but of course I can not verify anything. i know Antoine was a cooper, blacksmith and farmer.
but I guess what I really like to know what kind of a man he was personally. Was he funny? Did he have any hobbies? Was he a good father and law man? You know things like that. I guess I will never know. but I like to think both of our grandfathers were noble, hardworking men, salt of the earth.
An inspiration to us all. I can not go into detail just yet but I am currently working on a project I think all acadians Past, Present and future will enjoy. I do have a tree but do not know where it is. I can tell you my family moved to the isle of saint jean and where expelled in 1758.
Who know we very well could be cousins.

|Michael A Collins||RE: Thomas Collins|
Thank you for your time...now, that you tell me you cannot find a marker, I am, unfortunately, not surprised. Thomas Collins was my paternal grandfather who was born in 1894 or 1895 in Chicago. He married my grandmother in San Francisco around 1918 and they had three children, my father, uncle, and an aunt. Even though he had many supportive friends in important positions in Marin County, Thomas lost his career during the depression and his alcoholism basically kept him from re-building his life as an accountant and bookkeeper. This led to my Grandmother divorcing him and the resulting family alienation continued for the rest of his life, until he died in 1968, I believe. To make the story short, both my father and grandfather resented how he treated their mother and they turned their backs on him and I never met him. So, when he died, he pretty much died without family around him. For some reason, my father and Uncle kept that bitterness against him and subsequently he was buried in an unmarked grave apparently near his home in a rooming house in San Rafael at Mt. Olivet. One of these days soon I hope to come back to the Bay Area and find the plot and pay my respects. I forgive all of them, because, what else can we do? Thanks again for your efforts as I sincerely appreciate it very much...I wanted you to know more of the story since you care...
Thank you so much for the pictures of the Panigati graves. Great photos!
