|DBardes||Was Stuart Richey born 18 Oct 1744 Scotland?|
Hello Julie _____- Thank you for your work on the Richey lines via Traveling Teachers over many years. I have meant to ask you a question on Stuart Richey, my ancestor at:
In the past few years I was given an old letter by my beloved Aunt Martha. She found the letter inside the incinerator shaft at her home which was formerly occupied by my grandparents. I meant to ask you about it back then, but ... I do not have the entire letter at this point, but today I found one page which I had copied, as I am hunting in old files for a certain Hedges Cemetery 1910 Agreement (which I cant find). It is this page4 of the letter which gives the date of Oct 18, 1744, Scotland as his year (1744) and place of birth. This differs from your year so perhaps you are familiar with this early date. I think the death date reads 13th or 16th Oct 1806--I think this was from Stephen Richey Moore?? but again I dont have the whole letter and cant quite recall. If this is of any interest, please reply to my message board. I apologize for not having all my facts straight,but I have already waited too long to mention these perhaps important dates. Have you ever found a different Stuart Richey with these dates?

Thank you ever so much for this obituary. I have added it to his page. It makes all the difference in the world.
I have pictures of every stone in Atherton Cemetery, but I did not find a stone for Shirley Stevens. But here are other Steven's that I do have pictures for in the same cemetery:
These are in the Atherton Part (4 on the same stone):
Jessie W 1894-1963 (Pic #1966)
John W 1889-1963 (Pic #1966)
Ronald V 1964-1995 (Pic #1966)
Wilbur V 1915-1993 (Pic #1966)
Russell 1902-1961 (Pic #1890)
These are in the Old Atherton Part (same cemetery on Find A Grave):
Charles K 1919-1953 (Pic #0147)
Cleo Edward 1922-1928 (Pic #0148)
Leroy 1889-1962 (Pic #152 - death date blank on stone)
Sylvia Mae 1889-1959 (Pic #152)
Some of the people may already be on Find A Grave. All those picture are out on my website - if you would like to have them here, let me know (or request a picture) and I'm always happy to upload them to this site also.

|margie||happy to take them|
I am pleased that you liked the pictures. The headstones were fairly clean but I gave them a light dusting and removed some leaves. Thanks for letting me take them for you.

Juli - Thanks for the burial info for Thomas Boschert. I figure he's buried at the foot of Bridget Boschert's grave. Also, if you ever want to see something strange in that cemetery, here's what you need to do -
From Martin and Bridget Boschert's graves, look towards St Anthony's Hospital and a few rows towards the entrance to the cemetery. There's a gravestone that is very white, you could call it a pure white, and stands around 6 foot tall. The name on the gravestone is Benedict Boschert who was Martin's nephew. Make sure you note all the info - style of gravestone, type of engraving (bold black), info about Benedict (dates and name) etc.
Then go over to the far east section of the cemetery. There's a brick house on the other side of the fence. In the center (between the drive and fence) and possibly on the side of the brick house, there is another stone that is exactly the same - name, dates, style. It's on the Edward Boschert lot but as I recall it may be the only gravestone on that lot. Seems that a number of the Boschert family are in unmarked graves in that cemetery.
Don't know why there are two identical ones for the same person. The first one I saw was the one near Martin and Bridget. I had walked that cemetery many times and then one day out of the clear blue, I saw the 2nd one. It bugged me for a while and then I remembered why - there was another one over in the west section and I could have sworn it was for the same person. So I wrote down the info and noted the stone design and went to the west section and compared that stone to my notes. I couldn't believe it - identical in every point. The only thing I can figure out is someone had the stone arranged for and when they went to the cemetery it wasn't on the right lot. Then they made arrangements again and that's how the 2nd one came to exist. Never have been able to learn what happened to Benedict's widow or if they had any children (which I don't think they did), but at least would like to find her. Oh well one day I will.
And before I forget it, we're doing fine. I need to get over to St Josephs' Cemetery to get some new photos of recent burials but have to work it in with my husband's work schedule and the weather.

|Brent Gillespie||Photo Request - Zion Cemetery|
Well I got 4 out of 5 at Zion Cemetery, sorry to say I could not find a stone for Gene Douglas (1931-1933)but he is buried there (per death cert.). Also at Zion you have Elied Ward Douglas, it looks like Eli Edward to me on the stone (I tried to get a good pic but it is hard to read)-- Also at Leora Cemetery A. G. Douglas is A.C. (Alexander Commel) I thought it said A.O. until i looked up his death cert. My dad is the one who posted A.G. Douglas so I will get with him on that.-- Last of all are you related to the Douglas'es? I am thru Mary Geneva (Gillespie) Douglas-Siler. She is my great Aunt.
