RE: Photo Source of Ann Barker Brochard
Hello Old Bwana!
Thank you so much for replying! I'm thrilled you have the original photo and more info. Nice to meet you, relative :) I just sent an email to you, just look for one from HeatherEgan1
I'm currently in Utah - my mom moved here from New York years ago because she wanted to be in the mountains. I have yet to visit the old family areas in New York but hope to do so in the coming years.

Thanks so much again!

Photo Source of Ann Barker Brochard
My name is Heather Barnes Egan. Ann Barker Brochard is my 2nd Great Grandmother. She died of appendicitis when my Grandpa was only 10. You have posted a photo of her here on her memorial, #18695622.
I am so very happy about the photo you posted. Unfortunately we have no photos of her, and so this is the first time any of my grandpa's kids and grandkids have been able to see what she looked like. I am amazed that she looks exactly like my mom! Anyway, I am wondering if you could give me more information on the source of the photo. It looks like it is cropped from a larger photo, and so I am also wondering if you have access to the entire photo. Thank you so much for all of your help. I will be forever thankful to you for posting this photo. It is so amazing to see.
- Heather

RE: Brook Family at Donald Cemetery
I would very much like to see the Confederate memorial ceremony pictures if you would please e-mail them. I will try to send you some of the items about the Brook family sometime in the near future. As I mentioned they are mostly "who visited who" items but are interesting as you can pinpoint an actual time when ancestors were doing certain things.

I had some sort of brain fart when taking the photo for your request. A picture of Mr Fuller's marker was salvaged, but a better one will take its place the next time I'm at Cave Hill.

RE: Brook Transfers from Donald Cemetery
You are most welcome. I kept Josie Brook McGregor and Emma Peal Brook Wood as I am related to their husbands. I may have some more information to post on them later.

Brook Family at Donald Cemetery
Would you like me to transfer the Brook memorials at Donald Cemetery to you? I am only related by marriage to one of them, Josie Brook. She was married to my great-great uncle, William Jefferson Roberts. W J wrote a community news column for the New Decatur Advertiser newspaper about the Neel area of Morgan County and the Brook family is mentioned in some of the columns that I have copied from the old newspapers. It concerns Brook family members who visited them, etc.
