Bio and Links

Lives are commemorated - deaths are
Recorded - families are reunited -d
Memories are made tangible - and love is
Undisguised. This is a cemetery

Communities accord respect, families
Bestow reverence, historians seek
Information and our heritage is thereby

Testimonies of devotion, pride and
Remembrance are carved in stone to pay
Warm tribute to accomplishments and to
The life - not death - of a loved one.
The cemetery is homeland for family
Memorials that are a sustaining source of
Comfort to the living.

A cemetery is a history of people - a
Perpetual record of yesterday and a
Sanctuary of peace and quiet today. A
Cemetery exists because every life is worth
Loving and remembering - always.

RE: Elma Burns
I believe you are correct with St. Mary's Cemetery. After reading about the added parishes thru the years (, I would assume she attended St. Joseph's Parish, but her family is buried at St. Mary's Cemetery. In 1900, there was a church called Ferndale Catholic Church. Is it still there? Or has the name been changed? The Roman Catholics have a history of keeping excellent records.

Her husband John Thomas Gray b. 12 Aug. 1879, died Feb. 10, 1942 should be in the same cemetery.
Did you happen to find a marker for him?

Christy thank you thank you for the transfers. I appreciate your work so much, and having done some similar work at a cemetary near my home I know how rewarding it is. It's literally the opposite of morbid, it is a joyeous thing to keep the memory of ancestors alive. Thank you again. If I may ever repay the lovely gesture in some way it would be my honor and pleasure. Most sincerely, JAX, a fellow "grave walker"

Yes. Are you also related to Pamela? I am not sure I understand about a transfer.

If you look at the back view headstone marker for my mom (Ardis M Abla - Memorial #14383957) You will see all of the kids listed. Me included. I am Carl II, listed on the left side. But you will also see the name of Pamela listed on the right hand side. That is a reference to Pamela Jean Hoopes.

Hi Christy, Yes I am currently working on this to get all of the links together. Pamela Jean Hoopes was the first daughter of my step-mother (second mom)Adis M Hill Hoopes Abla (memorial #14383957) And her first husband N.L. Hoopes (Memorial #42412) Pamela was killed in accident as an infant.
