Grandma Singleton Next time you visit, check behind the photo. I added a little bit more. Also, will you please correct my mistakes in putting it all together. Contact me at email@example.com. Your memorials are so interesting to read. You are a real professional. djs
YOU FOUND IT!!!! I don't know what to say, except THANK YOU! I have asked my son to save it for me, I don't navigate well, and would never have thought to search with what Grandma sang over and over. "In the tree" repeated may have been just the clue one needed. Now I can leave it to my granddaughters in case they would like to carry on the tradition when they have children. Love having the extra verses. Bless your heart, you've made this old woman very happy. :) Hugs and thanks for all you do for people. Darla p.s. Wouldn't Grandma get a thrill out of this? Wish she knew!
Louise Murdock Georgia, I found Louise on the 1940 Census in Chicago married to Franklin G. Murdock and I also found her obit that says she is buried at Our Lady of Sorrows in Hillside, Il. I posted a memorial for her husband Franklin #154156512 with his obit. The only thing you can do is to contact the cemetery and see if they have a record of her burial, she does not show up on the kiosk, but the wife Pauline did. Judy
Our lady of sorrows is actually a small northwestern portion of Queen of Heaven in Hillside but for some reason has its own name. In the computer kiosks they refer to Queen of heaven and not OLS for the sections numbered 100-110
Alfred There are three stones in the Ingraham block that have first names only. I live in Waitsburg so went to check if the city had more detail. There was a letter to the clerk in 2002 offering corrections.
I have a copy of the letter and have scanned it. It appears to be from a person that has done a fair amount of research on Ancestry.
I don't see quite how to attach it here. My regular e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org and I would be happy to share that letter.
RE: Annie Bridges John H.(Henry Bridges seems to have vanished into thin air after the 1920 census! I have searched (online) the newspapers, cemeteries, census, California Death Index, etc., all to no avail. John is not a direct ancestor, my connection is only through his marriage to Annie. John and Annie did not have any children together. John had children from a previous marriage. I am in contact with one of his direct descendants and they also have not been able to find anything about him after 1920. The search goes on. :) Rhetta
