HARG...Hi. I am wondering if you can tell me this name's name, because it is driving me crazy not knowing. Also is M.J.Potter - Marion Jefferson Potter, his son? The info in the obit says his son was living in Omaha, Neb. and there is a Marion Jefferson buried there on this site. If that is his son, it would be good to know and link them.
That's all for now. = ]

Good day! And thank you for this message. Even though I may not be the one taking the photo request, when I see them pop up, I look at the memorial page to see what is on there. Some have obituaries and a lot of links and some just have a death date and not much more. For those, I search two on line sources: California Digital Newspapers that goes back to the 1860's and then the digitized Sacramento Bee, through the Sacramento Public Library. Library card required. I was glad to have found that obituary, because "R.W." didn't really tell me much. I saw that one Contributor asked that people not post obituaries on memorial pages, but I think they are full of important information, like relatives names and locations. So, I will keep looking for them in the old newspapers and posting them. I'm so, so glad that what I found has helped you connect with this man. = ] Here is the one website, if you want o try looking up any more info on him or his family. Put " " around the name. http://cdnc.ucr.edu/cgi-bin/cdnc?a=p&p=home&e=-------en--20-SDU-1--txt-txIN-%22Kent+brothers%22-ARTICLE------1

|Jeanne Holland||Mary Broadie|
I have looked recently for Mary Broadie in Dayton Cemetery. I did find four Broadies in Dayton cemetery, but i don't think any are her relatives. The information that I copied from the cemetery books at the geneological center listed her parents as J.M. and M Broade (no i) and that she died at age 13 mo,2 days. I don't know where this information originated. The stones I took pictures of are of Nancy Christina, daughter of R and Mary Broadie died at 3 yrs in 1860. John, died 1883 at 82 yrs. Martha, dau of John and Elizabeth, died at 13 yrs, and Elizabeth, wife of John, died 1855. I have searched for Mary before. I will try to see if there is other cemetery information on her parents, beyond that I am not sure how else to look. Some cemeteries have lot and plot numbers, not sure this one does. If you have any other information on Mary or her parents, that might help in the search. Thanks
|Graveyard Guardians||Mary Broadie|
We restored the Dayton Cemetery in 2009 and 2010. We did not find a marker for Mary Broadie. In a week or so, I will be turning all of the photos we have taken and our plat maps over to the township trustee (she is one who hired us to restore cemetery) and to the Tippecanoe Genealogical Society. There are about some pictures still missing that eventually the genealogical society will go track down. But, like Mary there are another 100 or so that we simply do not know where they are buried. The records on Find A Grave by Thelma Morgan were culled from newspapers, walking the cemetery, funeral home records, church records and anything else she could lay her hands on pertaining to this cemetery. There were no official records. She is a Godsend!

You are very welcome. I knew Kari's history because she and my daughter Nikki were roommates and were taken from us in the same horrible car accident. I felt that I couldn't honor Nikki without honoring Kari also. I visit Kari's grave every Memorial Day and leave a token of rememberance. I feel that the girls are still very close friends.
