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.

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.

Whitington / Bjerke
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!

Thanks again.

Best regards,

RE: William Mallett
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
