Where did the time go?|
Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.
Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me.
Still glides the Stream and shall forever glide;
We Men, who in our morn of youth defied
The elements, must vanish; - be it so!
Life must go on;
I forget just why.

|Gwynhwyfar ||RE: Edith Fowler|
Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. Although I never knew her, I inherited a couple pieces of her antique furniture so she's always had a fond place in my heart.
This site is terrific--and if you ever need anything from southern MD or northern VA, let me know and I'll do my best to help.
|Emily||RE: Griffith Headstones Photos|
Glad to help. Hoping to keep adding more.

8 Mile Grove Cemetery
I do not keep copies of stones after I post them.
This was from 6 years ago and I don't have any immediate plans for going to the cemetery in the future. I can no longer walk thru cemeteries.
I have her parents as Samuel and Mary E. I maybe I got it from the initials on the stone. If you believe this is incorrect I can change it. This is no relation to me. I took pictures because I don have relatives buried in this cemetery.

I was looking at Sylvie Bjerke buried in Forest Hill in Owatonna; in the comment, it mentions that Sylvie was married twice. I'm not aware of this (he was my dad's cousin) - Sylvie's brother, Alvin was married twice (Alma and Clara); After Sylvie's death, his wife Faye remarried. I thought maybe if you had a little more information I could do a little more digging. Thank you - glen

|As Time Goes By||RE: James Cowman|
You are most welcome. I ended up going a second time as the stone was hard to read (debris on the stone). I washed it off with water and a rag and it came to life.
As far as his wife, Elizabeth, I could not find a readable stone next to his. There is an unreadable one there that I assume is hers but will try to confirm it soon with the sextons office there.
If there was a long delay between when you requested the memorial be posted and now I am sorry. I have just come on board as a volunteer (again)and seems no one has bothered doing the requests for several years. I am getting caught up
with them. Thankfully the cemetery isn't all that big.

Hey! Thanks for letting me know! Unfortunately, I looked for the correct photo and cannot find it. I have photos on flash drives going back several years, but for some reason I can't find the Tryons. I will get another photo soon. I can't believe it took nearly 2 1/2 years for someone to notice this error!

Not a problem :) I'd never stopped at St Elizabeth's before. From there now I have 38 photos I'll have to find time to upload :D
|E. Bennett||RE: John Wilson|
My pleasure - happy to help.
