Bio and Links
Bio Photo It started when an uncle asked me to make a family tree for an upcoming family reunion. That reunion is over, but the tree hasn't stopped growing. Cemeteries are a wonderful source of family history, and, observation combined with outright detective work makes a fascinating and addictive combination.

PLEASE, do not put death certificates on the memorials. Chances are, I've already put any pertinent information in the biography. Let's celebrate the life of the person.

PLEASE be careful about posting obituaries. Living relatives may not like their names published and there are copyright problems with obituaries unless you own them. Usually, obituaries before 1922 are considered in the public domain.

RE: Death certificates
Just trying to enhance the memorial for the next of kin. Did not know that the memorial was your possession.

RE: Porter
I will check it out tomorrow. I have a free trial ancestry subscription that ends momentarily, so I am trying to get as much done as possible.

Alice Johnson Bugby Porter-Flaherty
And Alice J Porter is how her name appears on the Florida Death Index in Aug 1968.

On the Social Security Death Index, she is just Alice Porter in Aug 1968.

I still cannot find any burial info. Maybe she was cremated?

Alice Johnson Bugby Porter-Flaherty
In 1915, she was listed as Alice J Porter in the Indianapolis City Directory as "widow of Hiram E Porter," who was still living. They divorce five years later.

In 1959, she was listed as Alice J Porter in the Fort Lauderdale City Directory as the "widow of Hiram Porter". No reference to John Flaherty at all.

Alice Johnson (aka "Alcie") Bugby (first married to Hiram Edgar Porter) divorced John Leo Flaherty on 22 Jun 1935 in Wayne County, Michigan.
