RE: Thanks for the photo
Hi Mary
That person goes by the name Anonymous (#46933945) he goes and takes photo request I have claimed and goes to the location and takes his own pictures and then he will make up new memorials of that person not listed on the photo request. Its a underhanded way of doing things on this site.
I have reported him to the officials of F.A.G. and they are collecting members like your self complainants and will remove him from this site.
I would also suggest you contact him and ask him to remove his photos. If he will not just contact me and I will remove the one I posted.
He has posted quite a few with just a American flag and says this is the location, if you see one it looks like he took the photo in his back yard, no cemetery back ground at all.I have then gone to the same location and long and be hold there was a headstone just like in your case. I'm glad I could be of help...............JP

RE: Mary (Picker) Dyer
Hi Mary,

Would you please make the request through the edit feature on her memorial? Then I don't have to search for the proper memorial.

RE: McKiernan photos
You're very welcome.
Even standing in front of the headstone, these inscriptions were difficult to read.
I think it says -

Thomas Died month? 27 1877, Aged 70 or 75 years.
Native of ?, Co. Leitrim, Ireland

Mary Ann Born in Laprairie PQ May 15 or 18 1856
Died July 16 1881

Thomas seems to be more weathered than Mary Ann.

I was hoping that since you described the stone, that everybody would be familiar to you.
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful with the inscriptions.

Robert G. Owens Jr.
Hi Mary,
The Robert G. Owens connection is a bit confusing. My father-in-law, Lawton Corley Owens, named his first child Robert Gordon Owens after his brother Robert G. Owens. His son, my husband, also had a first cousin - the son of Gordon (what the family called Lawton's brother) - Robert G. Owens, Jr. It was Robert G. Owens Jr., who became Maj. Gen R. G. Owens.

Robert G. Owens, Jr., had one brother and one sister:
William Huyson Owens, b. about 1012, and Frances Owens, born August 19, 1914. Frances married a Barnett.

Robert Owens, son of Lawton, has two sisters: Jean Winifred Owens James (1928-18985) and Ruth Frances Owens Taylor (1931-205)

RE: Hello Mary
Actually, I am not closely related to any of the Christophers that I know of and transferring of management would be a hassle for you. If you wish, I will tell you how to do it, but, in that your family is connected to the Christophers, why don't you just add the data that I sent you to the memorials. Any prolems, get back to me.
