|Roger Guillemette||RE: Peckhams and LC-204|
Thank you very much for your help!
|Janet||RE: Thank you|
When I first photographed George Everard's stone, MY thought was that it was a fitting tribute to a well respected blacksmith-beautiful iron work-and perhaps his own-particularly the fence, since the women passed before he did. I was so heartsick to see that it had been vandalized-unfortunately this is happening more frequently, and always old stones with no family left to repair them. Tragic. George is in the middle,Anna on his left, Minnie on his right.

Yes, we have spoken before about this on ancestry.
It's one brick wall that is difficult.

Your very welcome. I enjoy transferring memorials to their family members when I am not related. I went to Mary Ann Sneck's memorial and I saw the wonderful tombstone pictures & bio for her; you did a wonderful job. You take great pictures.

No, there was no road "back in the day." Whatever road there may've been was all grown over by the time we were going there. This was before the houses were built at the base of the hill, as well, so whether the road is recent or not... I guess it depends on your definition of "recent." My days of going up to Pekin would've been in the mid-'60s. My great-aunt, my other grandmother, and quite a few cousins all lived along that stretch and up toward the reservoir, so it was an old stomping ground for us. Most of us came from over toward Orwell. :-)

"At the ages of 60, 70 and 80, respectively..." Were you writing about your family? or had the person who created the memorial written this? Regardless, my hat is off to them - I haven't been up to Pekin Cemetery in years, but my grandmother and I used to climb up there every year or two. It was a rough climb - and I was a lot younger then. Plus we weren't trying to shift a heavy gravestone, either!

Hello, Haven't done many stones this year, been really busy working. Still labeling photo's of stones taken last year. Fall and Winter is when I find time to post photo's. I really should plan a day to photograph another entire cemetery before the weather gets cold though. Hope everything is going well with you! :)
