RE: re: de clifford photos
Hi

Yes, Wade was a great racing supporter and owner of horses. In those days Riverton had a three day racing carnival over Easter - it was well known, but now it is down to 2. I attach a link to an article I found when I was trying to sort things out (as to which de Clifford was which) - it's about Gail's husband, but mentions Wade at the bottom.

Regards
Kaye

RE: re: de clifford photos
You're most welcome. It brought back some memories as I knew Wade when I was a child, and his daughter married into my line. Let me know if you want anything else.

Vallecito Cemetery #2
I am in CA on vacation (from NY), and my husband and I sought out Vallecito Cemetery #2, in an effort to try to find for you the missing parts of the inscription from Charles Rufe's grave (1861-1871). I have some theories on some of the missing words, and we took a lot of pictures. I can tell you that the original picture in the memorial is not a bad one...the problem is that some of the surface has slaked off of the stone. Please contact me, so we can set up a phone call to postulate on the missing words. If you send your Email address, I will send you the photos we took.

RE: re: adin french
Hi,
Adin had a middle initial N. in his name.

Under the death date it says: AE 29yrs. & 9ms.

the epitaph under that is not legible to me but appears to be a quote from the bible.

He is buried next to his wife Mary E. French.
There are additional French's here, too. It is possible that the Find A Grave memorials were established before the time that links were available. If you look at the other French memorial pages there is some information for family connections.
I am not related to anyone in the Dummerston cemeteries. I just can't pass up going down old roads and finding these historical graveyards.

I checked the poem printed on the bench and then checked it against the poem online. The poem is complete, ending with
"We will be one together." However, there is one word missing from the third line from the end. It should read "nothing is lost". The word lost is cut off.
