Thomas Ballard 1630-1689 I believe that this Thomas is buried at the Bruton Parish Church. The guide recently (month ago) told me that they had two levels of burials there and he is on the lower lever. The plaques are inside the church on the wall to recognize their burials. John Ballard possibly is buried at the church in Yorktown.

Thomas No worries! I see your last name is Ballard, lol. If my research is correct (I actually have a ? mark after Thomas name on my data, so still unsure if he is my 9th great grandfather( Give me some time and I may be contacting you to fix my tree somewhat. Thanks so much! Gonna delete the request. Thanks for all your hard work, many people like myself are so appreciative!
The Metz Family Jason, Thanks for the memorials to your family, they are great leads for genealogists. Have been researching the Metz/Baldes families for many a year, and found Marcell Bohn, who is the son of Veronica Metz (sister of John) and Marzell Bohn. He will be 79 in July and in bad health, so he says. Have you researched any of the other Metz family members? Please reply to Bert, and again, thanks.
I have uploaded the photos of your Margaret "Mickey" Ekdahl..... the correct site!
She is buried next to Johanna Ekdahl, May 12, 1852 - July 15, 1936. I photographed her site as well, and added Memorial# 72057031 for her. I am happy to transfer any of this to you. Mary Owens at Woodlawn was most helpful, and copied the info from their file for Mickey & left it for me. If you would like the info (there are about 8-9 pages, some looks like duplicates of what you have on Mickey's page, some additional), I would be happy to scan & email, or send it to you snail-mail, at your choice. Is Johanna Mickey's Paternal Grandmother? I found some Census records that seem to indicate . Thanks for th opportunity to discover a beautiful Memorial Park at Woodlawn.
