Thank you again to all who continue to visit my angel momma and other memorials. Your thoughtfulness is always appreciated.

If you have time, this Memorial Day, please visit my step son's Fallen Battalion Brothers of the 3/25th Marines who lost their lives in Iraq in 2005. (Virtual Cemetery 10) My step son is being re-deployed this summer. Please keep him in your prayers.

May each of you be abundantly blessed!! XOXO


~~ Dear Ancestor ~~
Your tombstone stands among the rest, neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care; it is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist; You died, and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you: in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled one hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

You're welcome, Kathy. I'm not kin, but I had created a memorial for Irving Briggs and was trying to link him with his family. There are still five siblings that I haven't been able to locate.

Rev. Donald A.Brown & ancestry line
How are you related to the Brown Family.

I saw you left flowers for Rev. Donald A. Brown and his mother Laura Blanche Strickland Brown.

Do you have names of Laura's parents.

In Sept. 2014 Peaka did have a memorial for Laura and Alexander Brown. However, when I tried to find this site now Feb 2015, I do not find the Peka page.

What is your relation to this family?

I saw your left flowers for Laura Blanche Strickland Brown
FindAGrave #40495403.

I no longer find the memorial page created by Peka that I had found in Sept 2014.

Are you related to LAURA?

The Peka page listed McPhaul as her mother and grandparents.
I do not find any proof of the name that was listed as her mother.
Do you have information of her parents and what public records prove the connection?

Do you know her father's name and family line?

Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

Thank you.

I found your page on Grover Cleveland Conoly was my Uncle. His wife Bessie was my father's oldest sister. I am in VA. If you need any research in this area let me know. I love Mr Tichnor's pictures. Do you know him or who he is? Where do you live ? Do you have any Conoly ancestry ? Thanks Juli Chatfield Clark
