Regarding SUNNYSIDE on Signal Hill - - Photo requests posted without location data are suspect since they might be for Forest Lawn on San Antonio at Cherry (which was called Sunnyside prior to 1978). I have a liaison position with management, and they are good about giving me sites. This arrangement is necessary because of past abuses of good will. I will post locations for the requests in the "problem notice," and maintain currency. Your cooperation assures accurate data and a satisfactory conclusion.|
Please use any photos associated with your loved ones' sites as you desire; they belong to you. If you ask for permission I'll know you can't read.
Transfers for anybody but close family if you have a good story - or even a bad lie. You can be adopted, or the ex.
íLa vida es demasiado corta como para objetar - Life's too short to quibble!
A note on why some 'souls' evade discovery: Think about it; there's little entertainment for the majority. One game everyone really gets into is to hide while we seek; hilarious watching us bumble about with growing frustration, using nicknames, omitting dates, or the ultimate - not paying for their marker!
Earliest ancestors Philadelphia 1697 on my father's side - My mother's side arrives in 1749 & 1751. Latest kin here by 1777.
In 1685 a Strode grandfather helped Monmouth's attempt to overthrow James II; and in 1745 another grandpa, this time a Grant, marched with Charles Stuart against George II - both causes failed utterly. Strode's son lost his purchase in England and fled eventually to Philadelphia (aboard a misnamed vessel in which he and his wife perished and his orphans prospered).
The strappan Sawney was transported in May of 1747 aboard the "Gildart', indentured, got a pass - then joined the opportunistic hoards flooding through Cumberland Gap. That whole pack has enough romantic burnishing to fill several Janice Holt Giles novels.
I'm NOT directly related to Daniel Boone of pioneer fame - I'm related to two of his sisters (5th great-grandmothers - Mary's grandson, Luke, wed Elizabeth's granddaughter, Mary Sanders).
I'm NOT related to Gen. John J. Pershing - but his uncle, J.S. Pershing (by another wife of our common sire, J.M. Pershing) is my great-grandfather.
NOT connected to Wm. Jennings Bryan at all - former Secretary of State and thrice Presidential candidate, a dedicated public servant and son of a dedicated public servant, who once lent law books to the aforementioned Mr. Pershing.
My direct lineage seems to have had an aversion to military service but for a maternal great-grandpapa who got himself wounded by the defenders of Vicksburg.
Well, too, there was that earlier trouble in the late mid-1700s; a few grandpas mixed it up in the Ohio Valley, rode with Geo. Rogers Clark and the boys - other scuffles with the Tories in the Carolina and Kentucky hills. Most got pensions for their efforts (them who weren't Loyalists). Myself - I spent three years in the US Army working for the Security Agency.
And - this from another graver:
'Much better to be looking for dead people, than to have dead people looking for you.'
There is an underscore _ in my address below, not a space.

|Twig Of The Tree||RE: Alta Moroney Picture|
That worked liked a charm! I was able to view the picture and enlarge it. Probably was a glitch in the "system" when it was loaded. I'm so happy to have it!---Twig
|Twig Of The Tree||Alta Moroney Picture|
Thank you for posting Alta Moroney's pictures!
For some reason, the picture of her head marker will not expand to a larger picture. I am getting a message that says it "cannot be displayed because of errors." The other pictures opened perfectly, but the one of her head marker (so I could get a better picture of the dates on the marker) cannot be opened. Could you please re-post?
You take beautiful pictures!
