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.'

Thanks so much for the beautiful clear pictures of Freda R. Campbell's tombstone. And you gave me a special bonus, I did not know the name of her husband.
|Nancy Collins||Theodore Born and Edna Lee|
Thank you for photographing their burial site. I am so very grateful for the lovely pictures and the red marker. May I use the photos for my family tree in ancestry, Edna Lee was my 1st cousin 1x removed. Thank you again.
|Carole Ann||The Dunks|
Thank you so much for taking the photos of the 5 Dunks at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park (Long Beach) Columbarium. After looking through many boxes of correspondence, I was finally able to find where my great aunt Emma's ashes were interred which led to locating her son and his family. I have now been able to link Emma with all of her siblings and her parents. She had been the only missing sibling. Thank you for making it complete with the photos!
|S Hemingway||Julia Benita (Simonson) Lee Fremming|
Just want to add my thanks for the nice photos of Julia's gravestone. I totally agree with the posted message left for you by Elaine Ellingson. Your photos are appreciated.
Thank you for attempting to take photos of Judson's marker (since there isn't one). I appreciate it.

I really appreciate your excellent photographs of my great aunt and uncle's graves including the ones looking up towards the chapel. It really shows me where they are resting. Very nice and thoughtful of you to place the flowers there for the photographs also. Beautiful.

Dear Mr. Bryan,
Thank you so much for the prompt fulfillment of my photo request! You really go the extra mile with the close photo and the distant photo with "pointer". Your extra effort is greatly apreciated by our family!
