That is great, about the Winner cemetery. This is spooky I was just thinking about the Winner cemetery today. I was day dreaming about prettying it up and planting flowers here and there and putting in a nice stone garden bench!
Your timing is impeccable! haha
A lady in a group I was in had suggested the local boy scouts might help but I never acted on that. I figured maybe she had done. Well that is very nice of her, if you want to send me more details, you can.
|Cathy||RE: Rathburns and Stewart Cemetery|
Thank you for the transfers. I will delete the memorial I have for Johanna and add my information to your memorial. Please send me the contact info - how wonderful that someone is taking care of the cemetery. If you prefer, you can contact me at email@example.com. I really appreciate your creating all these Rathbun memorials - has been a great help in researching the family.

Thank you for taking the time to get the photos of headstone in the Winner Cemetery for the McClain family
|Tree Leaf||RE: Thank you!!!|
Thank you for the great message. It is really great to hear that the Winner cemetery has been cleared and is not the tangle of brambles I had read about! I have at least several ancestors buried there. There are similar small cemeteries that were once on family farms, in which state they currently are I have no idea. That to me is a worry and a pity. But being thousands of miles away I don't know what I can do. Maybe some day.
I agree it would be nice to find out who did this amazing kindness and to thank them. I'd sure take them out for a fine meal (your family included) if I could and thank in person and yes I'd offer to pay for them to keep it up if I could afford it. We are in tough times here been laid off three plus years now. But yes, I would pitch in anyway. And happily!
The random act of kindness might've been a local LDS chapter, I had told one person about the cemetery some time back and they said they might let them know...but I don't really know for sure.
Hope you got a bushel full of great raspberries! =)
I didn't get the pix aside from what's on Richard's page, I will try to find the cemetery home page and thank you.

Thanks so very much for the fantastic pictures you took of the graves of the Rathbun family graves.
I appreciate the photos from the Stewart Cemetery you provided for me on the McClain family.
|Tree Leaf||Thank you!!!|
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, for your photos of Winner cemetery. I have many family, ancestors, buried there. I had heard it was overgrown and the stones fallen down or in disrepair, and it breaks my heart. It is a project dear to my heart to somehow get that cemetery cleaned up, and possibly erect a stone memorial there, to reflect all who are resting there. From death certificates, obituaries, and other newspaper articles and cemetery records, there is a list of people who are there but most no longer have a marker.
Thank you so much, again, I can't possibly say how much this particular one meant to me, considering his tragic death. He was my great grand uncle.
I am all ears if you should have any ideas how the cemetery could be restored. Thank you again for braving those thickets!
