Bio Photo First of all, if you are looking for a family members grave and find a picture here, please contact me for permission to use it. Whether or not you were directed here by Ancestry or Billion graves.com. Please ask me first. Thank you

Unknown we are to each other...through time our paths have crossed...so as we visit one to another...know as family you shall never be lost.

I consider Cemeteries to be outdoor museums.
I am proud to be referred to as "The Family Historian."


THE CEMETERY PHOTOGRAPHER

Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born

I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on

So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain

I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere

The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair

The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!

And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone

There must be a story, but we will probably never know.

Thank You again, Donna

PVT Raphurl M. Smith

Around 1904 there was still a cemetery in Vacaville on the hill at the west edge of what is now Andrews Park. It was shortly after that time that all burial activity was performed at the site between Marshall Road and Elmira Road (the current cemetery).

I haven't located any burial records for the Andrews Park site. If they could be located, we could create a cemetery for that defunct location.

Diane, in the current cemetery office, told me that about fifty people were moved from the Andrews Park site into individual graves at Vacaville-Elmira.

I doubt that all the graves were moved at that time, as some were probably unmarked.

Maybe the best we can do for Mr. Smith is put a note in his bio saying that he does not show in the Vacaville-Elmira cemetery record. If someone comes up with better information later, you will be able to adjust.

Blackwell Stegall Descendant
I believe Blackwell is my husband's GGG Grandfather. Blackwell Stegall -> Emsley Stegall -> Robert B Stegall -> Nannie J. Stegall -> Private -> Private (my husband)

Looks like we'll have to plan a road trip soon to visit all of the Stegalls.

Thanks for posting grave information!
