|I have a strong interest in genealogy, both my own and others, and history in general.|
Also, I have come to believe that the documentation created here is an historical record, ultimately of value to future researchers.
Therefore, it is extremely important to be accurate and to include as much verified information as possible, including the correct dates and places of birth of those whom we post to cemeteries.
Linking family members - besides indicating familial relationships - shows the patterns of migration and where families settled in different areas.
It is important to post individuals to the correct cemetery, rather than just creating lists of dead people in order to generate enormous numbers credited to our names.

We have been to Plymouth, England and Scotland, and I can't tell you how I mourn the loss of so many stones, so much information!! So many stories gone to the winds of time. If you should ever find anything else, I would truly love to hear. Thank you, Cynthia, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your work. It is appreciated beyond the telling of it.
|Anne Shurtleff Stevens||RE: Southworth|
Esther is linked to her father and unlinked from the wrong Ichabod husband perfectly, thank you. I am so sorry about the confusion, I myself, did not realize Ichabod (42402187) was only a few years old at first. So, the links to a wife and children, should be removed. Hopefully, the correct Ichabod will be found someday.
Just wanted to let you know the death date you requested has been added, and I do appreciate your citing a source. Thank you.

Actually, I had also taken a picture of his stone, so I uploaded it for you this morning. I live across the street to the cemetery, so I will take pictures of the (2) son's stones and upload them.

Thank you so much for the photo. I have wanted to go to Highland County and find this cemetery. Someone said Mary is in a cemetery across the street from a bigger cemetery. Was the stone hard to find? You have no idea how thrilled I am to have this.

Yeah Cynthia, I don't have a clue as to the meaning of the crown. The top of the monument has been broken off. May have been vandalism or perhaps a tree fell on it. Back around 1890-1920, the cemetery was like a park. There were huge shade trees, walking paths among the flower gardens, places for picnics and such. The farmers who had donated irrigation water to the cemetery for many, many years, discontinued this generosity in later years and the cemetery itself began to die. Very few of the huge Cottonwoods, or lush rose gardens remain. When the trees died and fell over they broke many of the monuments. From time to time there was also some vandalism.
The monument for George Ordway is made of zink, commonly referred to as "White Bronze". They were hollow, metallic markers with removable panals so the manufacturer could make a production run of a particular model and later produce an identification panal to fasten on when the "user" was known.
Wonderful old cemetery. So sad that it is disappearing.

Hey Cynthia, Thank you for the birth information on George Ordway.
If he is in your "tree" and you would like to manage his memorial, just let me know and I'll be glad to transfer.
