Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for decades and teach some classes, but am not a professional genealogist. I love the puzzle of finding my ancestors and those of my husband. My favorite vacation involves cemeteries and visiting historical and family history sites. I currently live in Florida, but I was born in California and grew up in Washington State. My children and grandchildren live in the mid-west so we travel a lot to visit living relatives and stop at the cemeteries of our ancestors whenever I can persuade my husband to do so. I will add pictures of gravestones as I take them.

RE: Wrights
Thomas and Hannah Wright are my 2nd great grandparents. It would an honor to have them and their family transferred to me.

Childs et al
There were a number of Childs' gravestones in the area. They were all sunken, one as deep as seven inches! So my wife and I raised them all to ground level. You may, as well, be interested in the other grave markers in the same area; but maybe not. I can't get to all the sunken markers across Oakdale and the caretaker is doing a yo-man's job. But I figure as someone is asking there is a connection to shaping up the area. I am told that in New Orleans the Creole will walk backwards out of the cemetery. The saying that goes with that is, "Never turn your back on your ancestors."

Continue the good search.

RE: Howe
Thank you for your kind words. I know how it is when you would like information that may never come.
Cheers

Hattie & children
Hi Leslie
I checked the Monroe burial registration. Henry's child is with Onalle Lincoln.

Unfortunately Hattie and both children & Onalle do not have stones.
There is space where they most likely be. I normally do not post empty spaces, but if you wish I'll post it with an explanation.

Howe's and Embury's
Hi Leslie
I have Louisa & Henry's picture but I want to re-shoot it. It one of those stones that is difficult to get a decent shot.

FYI - Did you know that there is also a Fred Fry & Emma on the stone. Plus on the other side it reads Embury at the top and below Josiah H.& Etta A. Embury.

I presume they are all related and they are a bonus for you (when I re-shoot).
Cheers Bill

Thanks so much for the link to Wildey cemetery interments. Do you happen to have the rest of the alphabet as well? I would love to see the whole listing so I can correct many of the pages I have there.
If you do, please email me - sandyvandertol@mail.com.
Much appreciation!
