First of all, if you are looking for a family members grave and find a picture here, please contact me for permission to use it. Whether or not you were directed here by Ancestry or Billion graves.com. Please ask me first. Thank you|
Unknown we are to each other...through time our paths have crossed...so as we visit one to another...know as family you shall never be lost.
I consider Cemeteries to be outdoor museums.
I am proud to be referred to as "The Family Historian."
THE CEMETERY PHOTOGRAPHER
Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born
I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on
So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain
I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere
The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair
The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!
And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone

|PJH / Angelbird||RE: Samuel McCrory|
Hi - Cataloging an entire cemetery...that's an amazing amount of work. You deserve a gold star. I'm sure there are plenty of grateful researchers & family members, even if they haven't told you so. Have a good one. Regards, Phyllis
|PJH / Angelbird||RE: Samuel McCrory|
Hi - I found the info in the Marriage Column of the "Wide West" which can be accessed on the Calif Digital Newspaper website http://cdnc.ucr.edu
The site includes, LA, San Francisco, Sacramento, Marysville, etc. papers. I wasn't able to find an obit for a McCrory in 1859 on that site, which isn't surprising as about 80% of the site is in need of correcting. I'm currently working on correcting 1856 birth, marriage and death columns. That's how I found Samuel's marriage. Since it took place in Suisun Valley, pretty good assumption it's the same Samuel.
If he's related and you have the time, you can enter the word "died" and search through 1859 died columns. It's a job, but you might find some good info.

Thank you for all the work you have done. Brian had a rare form of lymphoma that progressed into leukemia. He was allergic to the chemotherapy drug that would have been most helpful to him. Thank you for caring.
|cathy adams||Wendy Joan Strickland #11196139|
On the memorial it says Wendy is the granddaughter of Ralph C. Strickland and Marjorie Jean Hewes Strickland. She is my sister and they are our parents. The grave next to Wendy is that of Brian Wesley Adams. He is my son and their grandson. Wendy is his aunt.

|Jane Marie Morrison||RE: Mary Stegall removed|
This is my husband's line, too.
NOW, before I accept any changes to memorials I have created, I am doing research to make sure the info is correct.
The worst edit I ever received was for a man buried in Los Angeles. They said he was born and died in Kansas. That brought up a red flag. I did the research - found out the guy was born in Illinois and died in Los Angeles. Found an obituary for him. Since then, I do NOT accept edits at face value. Especially if they are family.
Glad I could correct her memorial. And glad you caught it!
|Jane Marie Morrison||Mary Stegall removed|
Sorry. I was the one who added her. Someone asked me to link them. They are unlinked.
|Jane Marie Morrison||Please remove Mary Stegall Thomas as his mother. She is his sister. Thank you.|
I am not the creator/manager of this memorial. I can't change anything.
Thanks for being such a dedicated volunteer on Find A Grave, I appreciate the transfers.
