For a loved Pet
RAINBOW BRIDGE author unknown

By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
When their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next,
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

They romp through the grass, without even a care,
Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.
For just at that instant, their eyes have met;

Together again, both person and pet.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
The time of their parting is over at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart,
Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
They embrace with a love that will last forever,
And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.

RE: re flower
Flower for Summer. Thanks! Yes she was. She had a portrait done her for our LDS Church but it was not published. Just for family. She was beautiful & very sad she left behind little Max who just turned 1 yr old! Utah is very beautiful! We have NO snow! It's been very warm! Weird weather here!

RE: Cordray
I have been unable to find Jeremiha's father so I have not been able to any farther back than him. There are a lot of Cordrey's and Cordray's from the area but I can not tie into a specific line.

Jeremiha P Cordrey
I see you have been to Hollywood. Jeremiha is my 6 th grandfather. I have not been able to go any further than that with any certainty. I was hoping you could shed some light.

John W. Davis
I wondered if you might have any information on John W. Davis buried in Denton cemetery in Caroline Co., MD, or if you are related to him. He could very well be my g-grandmother's brother who seemed to disappear from census records after 1900 in Goshen, VA. His 1st wife had died in 1901 and he re-married. He had 3 sons, Frank E., Hugh B., and Marvin G. Davis. Frank and Marvin are both buried in Maryland. I will continue to research him and see if he is the right one. In the event that he is indeed my John Davis, would it be alright to transfer him to me?

RE: transfers
Thanks very much, Gennie. You're so lucky to have actual papers from someone. My findings have been almost exclusively from research. Twenty years ago, I did have a photo or two, and names of ancestors that were unique. Then, it was off to the very slow races. Pat

RE: Edits
You're welcome.

They are relatives. I would be happy to take over the memorials.

Thank you for all your hard work. It so helps connect the "dots."

RE: McNelly, Singley and Bartolone
Wow, Gennie, that's amazing that we have those connections. Aunt Betty was my closest and dearest aunt and she spoiled me rotten. She lived most of her life with my grandparents on Glen Terrace, down the street from the PMC football fields (now dorms). Our family was united with the Singley's through Second Presbyterian Church. In fact, young Jim Singley officiated at both of my parents funerals. I went to school with John and Joanne Bartolone, starting with Parkside Elementary. I paled around with John a little bit when young but very little - he was a bit rough around the edges. They lived near Parkside Elementary on the east side (E. Chelton, I think), boarding Chester Creek. Haven't seen Joanne since school, and I stumbled across John's grave in Lawn Croft while shooting a request for someone else. Yes indeed, it's a small world after all!

RE: Slevin
You're welcome, Gennie! Glad to hear from you. FYI - The spelling of Slevin was an error due to a misspelling in the Chester history website - it is actually "Slavin" for Edward and Mary and has been corrected. As for the Chester area, it can be bad to be honest. I usually feel safe in the cemetery since the groundskeepers are usually there and there are walkers from Crozer-Chester Hospital going through a lot, especially around lunch time. But I always keep my guard up. The cemetery is only open from 8 AM to 5 PM. I wouldn't walk the streets on the Edgemont Ave side between the cemetery and the Widener campus. The more violent part of Chester is on the other side of I-95, between that and the Delaware River, which downtown is a part of. If you'd like to meet me at the cemetery the next time you're there, let me know - I'm retired now so I have days free. Take good care!
