Bio and Links
I work in the MIS department of a major studio in Burbank.

I love doing genealogy, riding horses, walking my Old English Sheepdog and doing anything or going anywhere with my family.

You can find us camping, at horse shows, tae kwon do tournaments, working in the yard or visiting historical and interesting places.

I will happily transfer memorials which are not my kin.

RE: Bryans
Many thanks to your son. He did a great job.

The context of the photo was such that I was able to eliminate this grave memorial from my list of possibles for the Clifford Bryan on my tree.

This is always useful information and of course affords the dignity of a completed memorial, which ultimately is the purpose of Find a Grave.

I resumed my search and have now located The actual burial record of the Clifford Bryan in an Illinois index, complete with the name of the cemetery

He was buried as James Bryan in 1936 and is recorded as James in both the 1920 and 1930 Federal census, with the correct place of birth and inferred year of birth recorded in both.

All other Clifford James Bryans born in Michigan anywhere close to his year of death accounted for - yes, I know, I really do need to get a life :-)

Perhaps he dropped the Clifford after he separated from his wife and children :-(

Clifford's father seems to have been quite an accomplished man. He was a Ships a Captain (probably Lake Michigan) and the family lived in South Haven, Van Buren, Mich - sounds idyllic. He was also the first appointed Lighthouse Keeper of a South Haven and even found time to serve as a local Justice if the Peace/Magistrate.

Thanks again for volunteering.

RE: Claims
Not a problem. It's the chance I take by not pre-claiming, though I was a bit surprised because I had to trim grass around all the markers, so I didn't expect someone else had been by them.

I saw two adult men, but it's possible the rest of the group was elsewhere.
