Hi Renny,
I have left some actual grave photos of Lily Ann, Deborah & Charlotte. The cemetery is just out of Newcastle NSW, I live in Sydney so I went to Telarah (West Maitland) some time back to take these photos. So blessed that they had the cash to invest in tomb stones.
Deborah Sharpe was my Great Great Grandmother, Mary Ann was my Great Grand Mother (her daughter)Deborah died at 50 years, her husband William was 55 and Mary Ann died at 41 years. Mary Ann died destitute and some 20 miles from Sydney City, a long was 110 years ago. The Asylum in which she died is just a few miles from my home in Auburn. It is now an Administration Block for the Silverwater Correctional Center. Love to hear from you. Hank

Renny, I took a photo of her headstone, and was going to start a memorial in Cottage Hill Cemetery. I noticed you had one already, so I stopped. What I did notice was your note about the possible wrong date of death. The headstone actually does read 1871-1962. I know it's very hard to read, but it does have the correct date on the marker.

Saw in find a grave NZ Eketahuna a grave of a Harriet Cooke-Snell

I was doing tree for Bishop from Stratford NZ
They still have the odd Snell - Bishop in the family. There was an architect from Plymouth google him Henry John SNELL the Bishops from Stratford well one is still alive and he is their Uncle. But Cooke-Snell was further up their line I did have extensive records not sure if I still have them. If you wish to contact me I would prefer private not public messages

This was my husbands great grandmother. I wouldn't mind manageing this site if you don't mind. I was going to start putting the Nussel Family up but thought I had better check to see if any of them were already up there or not. Well a few of them are. So will have to check each name before I add any info.

Thanks for your hard work
Carol Wolf Britton.

RE: Mary Ellen Britton Snell
Yes the three brittons in Summitlawn are indeed related. The Brittons were a large family. Brothers Samuel and Joseph married sisters, Mary Ellen and Mary Elizabeth Monk. Samuel and Ellen had 13 children and Joseph and Mary had five that lived. They both resided in Clay County, IN so you can just imagine how many Brittons there were at one time and many of them lived in Brazil and in Terre Haute areas. Thank you for your work on the cemeteries.

Warmest Regards
Carol Britton
