Hi Angel! I did not see Albine Sr but there is an Albino Jr and a Rafael. If you would like either of those, I am happy to take them. Also, if you would like any pictures taken after the laying of the wreaths, Memorial Day, etc please message me. I am happy to return. -Melissa

I posted Jr.'s picture today but Sr. Is not in a National cemetery. I live in Lake Worth. I will do a little digging. Keep you posted. :-)

Hello! Mr. Masso Sr is not buried in the SFNC or any other National Cemetery, according to the website. Did he pass in South Florida?

|Richard Hodges||William Bratton Inscription|
Angel, you asked for the inscription on William Bratton's grave. It is of marble and very faded thus extremely difficult to read. I think what follows is correct as far as I can determine...
Sacred to the memory of
Dr. WILLIAM BRATTON
a native of York District, S.C.
Born: July 16, 1773
Died: Dec. (?) 11 (?), 1850
Aged 77 years, 1 month & 11 days (?)
He was eminent and useful as a physician
attentive and kind to the poor
affectionate and amiable in all the
relations of life
and meek and compliant in Christ
His grave is to the right of his wife, Christina. The Bratton plot is enclosed by a granite wall of about four feet in height. At one time it appears that it also had several metal bars on top of the granite which are now longer there.
|Richard Hodges||Christina Winn Bratton|
Angel, you asked for the inscription on the Christina Winn Bratton grave at the Sion Presbyterian Church cemetery in Winnsboro, S.C. It is very faded but I read it as follows...
Sacred to the memory of
Who died on the 2nd day of November 1817
Aged 55 (?) years (35? Very difficult to read)
Grave, the guardian of her dust
Grave, the treasury of the skies
Every atom of thy trust
Rests in hope again to rise.
This marble is erected by
in mournful testimony of his
unfeigned affection and unlimited
respect to the memory of his
amiable and beloved wife.
See her page. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=47476987
The inscription has been sent to the original creator of the page and he should have the inscription up soon. Notice that the photo of her grave is turned on its side. It has been taken off the top of the sarcophagus and is lying on its side.
