RE: Ruth & Mary Swartz Thank you for the kind words. I'm happy to know that the F.a.G. Memorials of your Swartz relatives here in Kennewick have been helpful to you. The Desert Lawn cemetery is about 4 miles from us. It is a beautifully kept cemetery. I hope to be able to do more photographs of the tombstones soon, when it cools off a bit. I'm working toward getting the whole cemetery photographed at some point. Take care, and thank you! Fay C.
Effie Lutz Swartz... McBride??? I have been doing my family ancestry and i believe Effie was my great grand fathers mother. I was curious to know of any information you would be willing to share with me about her. She was married to Robert(Ren)McBride? They had 3 children: 1)Raymond C McBride B: 1901 2)Lilly Fay McBride B: 1902 3)Harry Leroy McBride Swartz B: 1907 Her Parents: Franklin Howard Lutz 1856-1926 Anne Elizabeth Cotton 1856-1949 ..................... Is this the same woman? and how do the Bennett's fit into the picture, do u know? Raymond C McBride was my grandpa's dad. My grandfather was adopted by his aunt Lilly McBride(Peterman) I am curious to know why Harry Leroy McBride took on the swartz name also. If you can provide me with any info, it would be greatly appreciated! my email is email@example.com
