Bio and Links
Bio Photo Arizona Irish Lady (ok, German, too) who retired from the Phoenix Police Department as Homicide liaison with the FBI. Moved into the mountains to get out of the heat and got bored quickly. Planted a garden, got some chickens; so while the plants grow and the chickens lay, will delve deeply into genealogy.

I got into genealogy when spinster great-great aunts (Bayless/Brady/McNeal) died and left tons of information that had been sitting in boxes. Bibles, pictures, books published by the family. WOW! I've since gone crazy with finding out all I can. (Our email name comes from the radio code which police/fire in Arizona use for an insane person) If you knew our family, you'd understand that it fits perfectly.

Have gotten back to 800 AD on my Barnhart/Brady side (Ballagh-Barnhart-Bayless-Brady-Broyles-Erickson-Fly-Fullen-G'Fellers-Hopwood-Lawson-McNeal/McNeil-Million-Orr-Pendleton-Schulte-Seaton-Stokes-Summerford-Watts-Wilhoit) and am starting on my husband's family (Clark-Higgins-Hopwood-Klopfenstein-Lawrence-Lee-Stauffer-Sutter-Sutor) now.

Now, I'm into finding where everyone is buried and getting photos of the gravestones.

(I've only taken pictures of cemeteries in the Arizona areas and all of those photos are free for the taking. A credit would be nice, but not mandatory)

[Please understand that there is, undoubtedly, incorrect info on some memorials; possibly provided by family, those who've contacted me, countless other people; and was not put on them to upset others, nor to invade privacy. If you can correct them, please contact me]

Anna McBride in Lowell, MA
I sent the following suggestion to the memorial manager for Anna McBride, but in case it does not get added, I am sending it to you for your general info as well:

McBRIDE - Annie McBride died yesterday morning at the home of her parents, Charles and Elizabeth McBride, 16 Barclay street, aged 6 years.

McBRIDE - The funeral of Annie McBride took place yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the home of her parents, Charles and Elizabeth McBride, 16 Barclay street. Owing to the cause of death, the funeral was private. Burial took place in St. Patrick's cemetery, Undertakers M. H. McDonough Sons in charge.

- Both of the above appeared on age 4 of the Lowell Sun, February 24 1919. Given the note about her private burial, and the speed in which it occurred, it is most likely that Annie was one of the many victims of the Spanish Flu influenza epidemic which claimed so many lives in 1918-1920.

Duplicate Sites
The sites James M Barnhart (Created by: Mary Lynne Suder; Record added: Apr 30, 2007; Find A Grave Memorial# 19154566) & your James Madison Barnhart (Created by: The Irish Lady; Record added: Feb 24, 2009; Find A Grave Memorial# 34170185) are the same person. Your site has more info. I have never tried to merge two sites so I have no idea about how to go about it.

By the way I retired from Dallas PD in 1999.

Samuel Summerford
Hi Gail,

My husband and I were in Bakersfield today with time on our hands. I took the camera along and we went to Union Cemetery, which, by the way is beautiful. The office staff walked out with us to find the exact spots for young Samuel Summerford and his mom Mary Moore Summerford. Mary's grave is in a large unmarked section. I was told these were county graves. So sad, so many unmarked graves. I marked the spots with text on the photos.

Zachariah Pendleton
Hi Gail, I just found Zachariah Pendleton #62627677 in the Maries County Cemetery Book which shows him at Red Cemetery instead of Pendleton. I'll look for him the next time I'm there, but I was just excited to find him. KIM
