|Bio and Links|
|I am a North Londoner of Irish Protestant and Anglo-Indian (or, to be more accurate, Hiberno-Caledonian-Anglo-Dutch-Huguenot-Indian) parentage. I was trained as a mathematician but, at the moment, am working only part-time. I have travelled a lot; not only around the British Isles, but also throughout: Europe; Africa; America (North only; I have yet to cross the Rio Grande, never mind the Panama Canal, although I did, once, venture across the Forty-Ninth Parallel for a month, and should like to go back to Canada again, sometime); Asia; and Australia. Unfortunately, most of those voyages were undertaken before the invention of the digital camera, so I can't show you too many of the graves I saw when I was abroad. When I am not travelling or working, or painting or acting, I am learning to play the piano and various woodwind instruments. I try to keep my body fit with cycling and swimming and karate, as well as by never drinking alcohol, or smoking, or eating flesh, or fowl, or fish, and I try to keep my mind fit with chess and crosswords and reading.|
Please note; I am forever running around this world (as Jefferson Airplane once sang), and seldom check the computer when I am on my wanderings; but, if you write to me, I shall make sure that I answer on my return.

Thanks for letting me know about this. Please keep me informed as I'm very interested.
|Mary Harrison||RE: William Rodgie (Jerusalem)|
Many thanks, Ian, for updating the Rodgie record. And I hope that your travels do take you to Hawick one day. It's a lovely old town.
|Mary Harrison||William Rodgie (Jerusalem)|
A quick note to thank you very much for the lovely photo and transcription of William Rodgie's tombstone. Just one small question: as far as I know, William's wife was named Mary Elizabeth Graham. The couple married in Hawick, Roxburghshire, Scotland in 1863. Mary died not long after William -- in Hawick in 1876 at the age of 34.
And many thanks,
Mary Kelman Harrison

Ta Iain for the amendment. Hope all's well in your world. I too have travelled to your neck of the woods but only passing through to visit my cousins in Lisburn. =)

It would be a great name!! It is the Damariscotta Library to me as I have problems pronouncing Skidompha :)
I live in Bremen and hit cemeteries when out and about too - was in one in Jaffrey, NH this past weekend :)
I love my cemetery adventures and try to add as much to memorials that I can so that those doing research can get as much as they can....
|José L Bernabé Tronchoni||RE: Antonio Godoy|
Wow. Thans a lot for sharing your find!!! It's very touching to me. I will add in my virtual cemetery about the Dark years of Spanish civil war and Franco's dictatorship. Thanks again. Best wishes and thanks to remember me. ;)

Iain, I have comprehensively 'edited' (updated) it after reading Boris J.'s "Churchill" book! MDP.
