Mary Elizabeth Thomas Rust's memorial (1918-1977). Bridgeville Cem., Bridgeville, DE.
Hi, Carl. You created a memorial, in Bridgeville Cem., Bridgeville, DE, for Mary Elizabeth Rust (nee Thomas), born 1918, died 1977. I can't guarantee it, but I feel pretty confident that she was the daughter of a couple (that I'm NOT related to) I've documented (along with nearly all of their known children who survived them) in Our Lady of Lourdes Cem. in Blades, DE. I've created memorials for nearly all decedents who are buried in OLOL Cem., and have done limited research on some of them, which is how I came up with the the info I'm about to run by you: Per the 1958 obituary Santa Thomas (whose maiden name ALSO was Thomas [she'd married a cousin]), she (Santa) was survived by a daughter named Mrs. Mary Rust of Bridgeville, DE. The Mary Rust you created a memorial for (and that you presented maiden name of Thomas for) is a perfect fit for the Thomas family in question. If you personally think your Mary E. Thomas Rust is the same person as Mrs. Mary Rust who was a child of Santa Thomas Thomas, here's the names and memorial numbers for the parents in question: FATHER: Thomas D. Thomas (1882-1957), memorial #26567338; MOTHER: Santa Thomas Thomas (1884-1958), memorial #26567339. Only link Mar Thomas Rust to the memorials of Thomas D. Thomas and wife Santa Thomas Thomas if you feel certain she was their child. If you have any doubts, it'll be best to just leave her unlinked. Best regards, Dave Wilson

Hey there Carl - Thought you'd like to know that I was out at Henlopen recently and grabbed snaps of Carl & Elizabeth's marker. It's posted on their respective memorials. Cor
