Thomas E "Tommy" Jordan I have become interested in researching this family. I am Tommy's 2nd cousin through his mother. I'm curious if you know who has access to his photo album. I am very interested in looking at it.
Bankerd Michael Harris did a partial indexing of Greenwood back in 2007 for the California Tombstone Transcription project. He had to have seen something with her name on it. I have photographed the majority of them but haven't found this one.
I can tell you I've been told by the cemetery office that other people aren't buried there and then when I've photographed entire sections i have found that person.
According to her obituary she was cremated and it doesn't list the cemetery. Apparently her brother is buried at Glenn Abby, I'm asking a friend to double check to make sure Mary isn't there as well.
Martha Caldwell Hi, I have transfered her to your care. I am the one that remapped the entire Lot Cemetery after original was created sixty years ago and then handwritten on from there. I have prodded the ground for headstones for those that was on the original map and found many headstones. So I am saying that there is not a headstone for her toherwise I would have located it. I will get the exact grave number. Other wise the ground keepers are excellent at placing headstone where they belong. I think it is awesome that you are having one created for her. I am excited to see what hers will be like. I looked at his and I think you are doing an awesome service to the family. I also have done this for some family members as well as having a leaf on the living tree at the cemetery office. Everybody deserves to be remembered in some way. Blessings Jo
re Joseph Woods (1723-1775) Hello, I'm Robert E. Parrott, Knoxville, TN. I'm a 4th g-grandson of Joseph Woods (1723-1775), through his youngest son Thomas Woods (1758-1833) and Thomas' son Joseph and Joseph's son James Andrew. I've been working on the Woods family for many years. My book will be published within a few months, I hope. It is entitled "On the Road to Canaan: The Story of Thomas Woods (1758-1833) and Lorena Byers Woods And Their Family." I was fortunate to inherit some early Woods memorabilia kept by my grandmother, Alda Woods Parrott (1846-1927). I would be glad to hear from other descendants of Joseph/Thomas Woods. Best wishes, Bob Parrott.
Laura McClanahan Pitzer Obituary published in The Washington Post Wednesday May 12, 1915 "Mrs. Pitzer Dead in Salem. Word was received in Washington last night of the death in Salem, Val, of Mrs. Laura Pitzer, wife of the Rev. Alexander Pitzer, who organized the Central Presbyterian Church in 1868 and served as its pastor until 1906. Mrs. Pitzer had been in ill health for about a year. Funeral services, which will be held in Salem tomorrow, will be attended by the Rev. James H. Taylor, present pastor of Central Presbyterian Church, R. P. Clarke, an elder of the church, and other friends from Washington. Mrs. Pitzer is survived by her husband, now in his eightieth year, a brother, Mr. McClanahan, of Roanoke, Va., and a sister, Mrs. White, of Raleigh, N.C." This obituary doesn't give an exact date of death but from the publish date I estimate her date of death as 10 May 1915 and from the clue in the obituary her burial date would have been 13 May 1915. The 1900 U.S. federal census places her birth to be Sept. 1841.
