Regarding SUNNYSIDE on Signal Hill - - Photo requests posted without location data are suspect since they might be for Forest Lawn on San Antonio at Cherry (which was called Sunnyside prior to 1978). I have a liaison position with management, and they are good about giving me sites. This arrangement is necessary because of past abuses of good will. I will post locations for the requests in the "problem notice," and maintain currency. Your cooperation assures accurate data and a satisfactory conclusion.|

Earliest ancestors Philadelphia 1697 on my father's side - My mother's side arrives in 1749 & 1751. Latest kin here by 1777.
In 1685 a Strode grandfather helped Monmouth's attempt to overthrow James II; and in 1745 another grandpa, this time a Grant, marched with Charles Stuart against George II - both causes failed utterly. Strode's son lost his purchase in England and fled eventually to Philadelphia (aboard a misnamed vessel in which he and his wife perished and his orphans prospered).
The strappan Sawney was transported, indentured, got a pass - and joined the opportunistic hoards flooding through Cumberland Gap.
Or not. That whole pack has enough romantic burnishing to fill several Janice Holt Giles novels. 'Guid books, those.'
I'm NOT related to Daniel Boone of pioneer fame - I'm related to two of his sisters (5th great-grandmothers - Mary's grandson, Luke, wed Elizabeth's granddaughter, Mary Sanders).
I'm NOT related to Gen. John J. Pershing - but his uncle, J.S. Pershing (by another wife of our common sire, J.M. Pershing) is my great-grandfather.
NOT connected to Wm. Jennings Bryan at all, former Secretary of State and thrice Presidential candidate, a dedicated public servant and son of a dedicated public servant, who once lent law books to the aforementioned Mr. Pershing.
My direct lineage seems to have had an aversion to military service but for a maternal great-grandpapa who got himself wounded by the defenders of Vicksburg.
Well, too, there was that earlier trouble in the late mid-1700s; a few grandpas mixed it up in the Ohio Valley, rode with Geo. Rogers Clark and the boys - other scuffles with the Tories in the Carolina and Kentucky hills. Most got pensions for their efforts (them who weren't Loyalists). Myself - I spent three years in the US Army working for the Security Agency.

I have a photo request for the above but when I went out today and took the photo, it is a duplicate to a memorial you created. You might want to use some of the info on the duplicate to update your memorial and then request the dup deleted. I am not going to add the photo to the duplicate.
Thank you so much for the photos of my Uncle Richard's grave. The views and detail is wonderful. I really appreciate you doing this for me.
God bless and thanks again,
