|Bio and Links|
I was already an avid genealogist, when I attended a family reunion in 1990. It was there I saw a photo over a century old of a distant relative, taken in the town I grew up in, in a state I had moved from ten years earlier.|
While I had lived there, I had no idea any relatives had ever been in that area. That was really a catalyst for me. I soon discovered that several ancestors and many relatives were buried within thirty miles of my home town.
I am currently looking for the grave of a GG-Grandmother, who died within ten miles of another town, in another state, where I had lived prior to school age.
In this highly mobile day and age, we move around a lot. As a modern society, it's very easy to lose a sense of our roots. Yet, they are all around us. We need only to acknowledge them, and honor them.

It seems that Elizabeth has two memorials on this site. One was done in 2008 Memorial # 29585969, and the one you put up in 2009. Just an FYI

I'll be going back to Evergreen in a few weeks to continue my project there. If you have a location/plot I can do yours sooner, but I'll get to it eventually. I'm proceeding counter clockwise from the SW corner and am about 25% completed. It may get finished this year, but I won't make any promises. Most of the stones need edging before I can take a photo.
