Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born & raised in Wayne MI.Moved to TN. after we were married, Married 28 years. Working on my family tree ( Carroll / Lytle / Kelleher ) takes up most of my time. I have alot of people ask me why I would want to hang out in cemeteries, I just tell them, It's very peaceful. I could spend hours there just reading headstones and wondering what the people there were like.
We don't have children so our dogs are our kids.

Ruth Virginia Allen Glacken
I called the cemetery, and they had no record of Ruth Glacken, so I checked ancestry to see if she had remarried, since there was a long time between her husband's death and hers, and it appeared she was named Ruth Virginia Grahl when she died. There is a memorial for Ruth Virginia Grahl at Michigan Memorial, with a photo already added. They have her birth date as Sept 3, 1922, death date of Aug 10, 1998. The birth date is one year off, which agrees with the headstone. I just noticed that you are owner of both memorials. So, long story short, you already have the grave photo. The name progression from social security is:
Mar 1943 Ruth Virginia Allen
Nov 1959 Ruth Virginia Glacken
Dec 1975 Ruth Virginia Grahl
22 Aug 1998 Ruth V Grahl
Birth 3 Sep 1923, death 10 Aug 1998
Father James Allen, Mother Angie Kimberlin
If you agree with this assessment, please cancel your request. Thanks!

RE: Yarnall / Glackin
I'm so sorry Vivian, I don't have any info or photos on Martha or her family. Only that she is my fourth cousin 3X removed.

Thanks Vivian, Always glad to be able to update an unknown. I've linked Nathaniel to his mother. Was his father John Alvin? (Find A Grave Memorial# 141161123). If so I can add that link too.

RE: Glackin
Hi Vivian,

I just wanted to be sure you knew I didn't send you the pictures. My message was in reference to attaching William Andrew Glackin to the wrong father. My records show he is the son of Andrew Price Glackin as he was born 5 years after the death of the William you have him linked to in Findagrave.

RE: John Carroll
I looked through our records and did not find a John Carroll buried here at Forest Lawn using the date of death you provided. Let me know if you have any questions, thanks.

Vivian, I cannot seem to find the burial record for John here at Forest Lawn. Do you happen to know the date of his service/burial? Thanks.
