RE: John, Clara, & Sheman Bowen Thank you so much for the info. My father wasn't one to talk about them so I never knew a thing about them until I got a phone call from my cousin Nancy Troy. I grew up in Washington State so we didn't live close enough to my father's family to know anything. It's so nice to know who they are now. I will have to travel up there and see the violin, try to find any of them who are still living, and maybe visit some of the grave sites I have found. Thank you so much.
RE: John, Clara, & Sheman Bowen Did you by chance know them personally or family members? John and Clara were my great grandparents and of course Sherman was my grand Uncle. I am so curious about them. I grew up in Washington State and never knew my father's side of the family. Any info you could pass on would be greatly appreciated.
West Burlington Village Cemetery Thank you so much for the Bennett stone photos! Tough to read, eh? Good work getting those shots. Hawkins's wife, Ruth, *may* be buried with him - did you see her name? I really appreciate your time and effort!
Hannah Overy stone You will NEVER know how exciting this is for me to see! I can't believe that it's in such good shape, just waiting to be photographed . . . and she was such a mystery for so many years. You can hardly imagine a more appreciative person. Any chance that you'd be willing to e-mail an uncompressed file to me? Any chance that you were able to take photos of the stones on either side of her? Oh, my . . . thank you SO much! You've made my year!
Henry Arnold cemetery photo Thank you for adding the photo of Henry William Arnold's gravestone to memorial #5901577. Would you please add it to his wife Lucinda's memorial as well? #5901577. I notice her name and dates are included on the same monument.
