In my quest for learning more about my family I discovered I have a love for old cemeteries. I love the old monuments they are truly a work of art. I always wonder when I see a headstone, who that person was, "really" and say a pray for their descendants and family members. Some might say it's silly. |
I am a housewife and grandmother. I love gardening, quilting and digging in the dirt as I climb my family tree. I get so passionate and excited when I find something that teaches me who my family is. I have always loved U.S. History and have discovered that my ancestors were soldiers in the Rev War, War of 1812, Civil War, WWI and WWII. My heritage is one of pride in our country and faith in God. The more I've learned about my family who's passed the easier it is to understand who and why I am who I am. I was a change of life baby so I didn't have the privilege of my grand parents for very long. So, I've always had a curiosity "who were they"; they migrated from MO in covered wagons; rode the OR trail during the Gold Rush, earned enough to buy land in TX; members of christian congregations, pioneers everywhere they went it seems. One of my 4th Great Grandfathers was actually the founder of the First Presbyterian Church of Rockwall Texas. They have been mentioned in histories/books. It has been soooo much fun.
I actually discovered that one of my grandfathers' was a Mason by the engraving on his headstone. We can learn so much about who people are by their headstones.
If I can help someone get a bit closer to their family then it makes all the time I've invested worth every moment spent.

I just realized that I never thanked you for taking a photograph of their stone, Thank You! Do you allow your photographs added to ancestry.com trees?
|Peter Johnston||RE: Anna Condit Tichenor|
AAAAARGH You are so right. I am now trying to see if I have a photo of Hannah's marker. I did the photo posting years ago and am now not sure that Hannah has one. Thanks again

I appreciate the info. Since I have only tried to put information (mostly from our local library) on memorials so family members can identify them, it is important to me to have accuracy. I am not a relative, just live close to the cemetery. Since this is your GG Grandfather, I would be happy to transfer management of his memorial. That way you can accurately add or subract your information. Just let me know. Thanks, Marian Johnson

Thank You...It is a marked grave. I know that as you walk into the cemetery, it is on the right side and if I remember right it is near a tree (maybe a palm tree). Thank You

Thank you for taking such a beautiful picture of Uncle Frank headstone and posting it on his memorial for me. Some how I didn't get the email that you had gotten that done all ready. So thank you very much, and I am sorry I am late in saying that to you.
|Ladean Cox Bowman||RE: #43248840|
It was not you at all. I called the cemetery where his widow was interred and found out that he was interred near her and not even where I had you check. Again thanks

for Mr. Johnson entry
Hi again. You tried so hard to get a photo and did get a photo of an unmarked grave. I have now found out that the Mr. Pickett I am looking for is actually buried in Colorado near his wife.
I am asking that you delete the 2 photos that you put on this entry.
Again thank you, and if not for your work I may not have kept pursuing the correct information.

Thank you for taking on the task of photographing my dad's headstone. He is in the Mountain View cemetery in Barstow. His name was Vernon L. Carey. His headstone says he was born in 1928 but it is wrong. He was born in 1929 and was 29 when he was killed.
