RE: Celia Shoup No, Sharon. I am not related to the Shoups. I just take a lot of cemetery pictures and find as much info on them as possible through the local papers and Ancestry.com, of which I am a member. If their profile has already been made and pictures already taken, I am apt to place a token on their page because I visited the grave.
Mary Schrack Dear Sharon; I passed by Library this A M. The vicksburg Evening Post Newspaper prited a 40th anniversary Issue on March 29th, 1979 Very interesting.. It states for what it is worth; "Then there were the Schrack Sistgers, of Mansfield, Ohio, Mary and Gladys, tghey were Spring Vacationing in the South." Will get it transcrfibed up in a day orso and send you a copy. Sam P
Alberta Allen Clark Hi Sharon, If you read the obituary that I have for Alberta, I have added (ALLEN) after her name in my memorial, which, to me, means that was her name when she married her first husband. Since the obit is from 2011, I can't go back to verify anything from the funeral home. I could not find her obit on google. (And I think the funeral home is closed). BUT, we did look up on the Social Security Index on Ancestry.com and she drew her social security under the name CLARK. I wish they had added Mr. Clark's first name. Can't verify much without that. In my mind, she was married twice. If she is a relative of yours, or even a good friend, please take (copy & paste) her obituary from my memorial and paste it into yours. She is not related to us. It is not unusual for people to put both names on a tombstone when they buy it. (We have done that) But when one of them dies and remarries, they are buried with their FIRST spouse, because they have children together, and probably the first marriage was the longest...not always, of course. You do whatever you want with her memorial. It will not make any difference to us. Just happy to have duplication fixed. But please let us know what you decide. Sorry for the length. I tried your email and it didn't go through. Thanks, Helen
Mary Schrack In my files, which are in no means complete, she is listed first as Miss Mary Schrack and a couple of days later as Mrs, Mary Schrack Murray, Do not know but maybe she had just married. I know a ton of stuff about her death and what happened afterward, It is ugly. Are you interested. Will share, Sam P
