Hi Everyone

Sometimes a cemetery piques my interest and if it's small enough and I have enough time I will try to take headstone photos of all the headstones there or as many as I am able to.

Sept 8, 2013 -- St Gertrude's Cemetery, Lebanon, PA. This is my very special project. As of this date every name on every headstone there is posted along with photos of all headstones.

May 29 & 30, 2009 -- headstone photos taken at Sacred Heart Cemetery, Corbeil, Ontario, Canada; if note says north side then that would be the graves located to the left of the gate & I did finish all the stones on this side; if note says south side then that would be the graves located to the right side of the gate & I didn't get this side completed.

Sept 9, 2009 -- headstone photos taken along the Blue River, AZ; no photos taken at the main Blue Cemetery because it is on private property & access was denied by the landowner.

RE: Anna Hightower & Rex Bourne
After my research today, Ada Elizabeth, "Anna" Hightower was William Stephen Bourne's first wife who he married in Lincoln County, New Mexico on Jan 27, 1901.

Together they had the two boys Creed Curren Bourne and Reginald Jennings (Rex) Bourne. They are both born in Lincoln, New Mexico.

I do not believe that William and Anna ever lived together in Arizona. She Married Thomas Allen Hightower in New Mexico on May 5, 1909 together they had one girl Myrtle Maxine Hightower. They moved to Tucson Az in 1935. The Boys were living in Tucson Arizona also at this time.

William appeared not to have any children with Eulalia or at least I can not find any children at this time.

After reading articles on APCRP website, the two twin boy's may have been William's by James McCurrin's wife, which may have been the purpose for the gun fight that took both men's lives. Please do not hesitate to email me at if you have any other questions. I did a family tree on William Stephen Bourne's family and found lots of pictures which I will post up on their individual sites. Joe

RE: Anna Hightower & Rex Bourne
I am not related, Don't change anything yet my email is I have been researching William Stephen Bourne, and there are definitely some discrimination's in the records. Both boys Creed and Rex were born before William married Eulalia in 1910.

My issue is you have both boys Creed and Rex on both wives Eulalia and Anne's findagrave. They both can't be the mother. I will do more research and you check your records. Also to make this even more interesting at the Tussock Springs Arizona site there are graves for two twin boys, the grave stone says Bourne twins 8-22-22. This is the same death date on the graves for William Stephen Bourne, and James McClure. It appears they had a gun fight and killed each other the same day the boys were born. Like I said very interesting place and people.

RE: Melvin Dingman photo request
You're welcome. Sorry there wasn't a marker. Paul Dingman and wife are just two rows directly below with a beautiful marker. There are several unmarked in this particular plot. I located Melvin's by using the plot record with the names surrounding him. If you get a marker, let me know and I will photograph it for you.

Take care, Laura Hoke

Your mother
Hello Pat,

Back in the 1980s perhaps, your mother and I corresponded and she provided me with quite a bit of information about your part of the family. It is nice to meet you.
If you go to:
and search for "Ryland" you will several references to her.

There is info also at:
