|Bio and Links|
I am glad to share any information about the memorials that I manage. I have personal knowledge of them and am a genealogist. I welcome questions and correspondence.|
My intent is to share family history (not just mine) so that it's not forgotten. Often I will ask for a transfer, add information and links and then transfer it back. I love it when bio's and obit's are included and families are linked!
You may notice that I LOVE my old photos of relatives. I share them freely to help keep their memory alive for future generations.
I added many family photos to a certain public website for all to see, only to find that most of them can only viewed by paid subscription. (We all know which company has a monopoly on genealogy!). If you use any of my family photos, acknowledging the source isn't necessary, but it would be appreciated.
I love the Find-A-Grave community!

NEED HELP FINDING FINDING CEMETERIES FOR:

Walter Johnson Kershaw in Los Angeles, CA
|Messages left for Jen (41)||[Leave Message]|
I am showing the Barrowmans to be from Ayrshire (Irving and Dreghorn) in my tree.
Jen, My Pattersons are from Fifeshire. Jane Patterson married John Meiklejohn, and their daughter Jane Meiklejohn married James Barrowman. It seems my Barrowman tree is messed up due to a merge and I am going to have to straighten it up, but if I remember right, this James is the son of James. My Johnstones came from Dollar and Alloa in Clackmannanshire, all just north of Stirling. One of the Pattersons who stayed in Scotland ended up in Stirling. It has been a long while since I studied that branch. If you see the Barrowmans, Meiklejohns, and Pattersons in Oakwood, they are all from the same general area in Scotland. Also, if you look in Miller cemetery in Spring Valley, you will see more of our Pattersons and Barrowmans buried side by side. Also, while in Washington County PA, I found some Barrowmans. All of these families were in mining and followed the coal mines in the Illinois River Valley. If you look at my virtual cemetery for my direct ancestors, start with Christina Strang Patterson and you can follow at least where the Patterson clan ended up. Barrowmans went from Braidwood to Morris I believe.

Thank you so much for the compliment. First time I've gotten a compliment on management, had a few on photograhs.

Sorry I am so slow with a reply.
The information that I have included in Harriet's bio is what is on the stone. There is also an inscription at the bottom that I did not try to read at the time. I will see if I can read it when I once again venture out to the cemetery. I am waiting for the "Green" to appear.
|New York Historian||RE: You are worth your weight in gold!|
Thank you for your kind note, my pleasure.
|Michael Cassara||RE: need help- question|
Typically the letter is actually the plot and not the range, so I imagine it should be:
Section 35 Range 8, Plot E, Grave 11
But the important part is to just make sure that everything is listed - with the crucial Section 35 listed first, i.e.:
That will guarantee that anyone can find it whether or not they're familiar with Calvary's systems.
