RE: Adelaide of Savoy Hello, I can not find the memory card at the moment, but rest resured that it is not a door. You wouldn't be able to open it because of its weight. If you look closely you can see a figure with a crown. If I remember correctly the marker said that this is the gravestone of Adelaide de Savoie. It further said something of the history of the church (that she founded it and died there).
RE: Sir John Popham She was born at a time when the Cymric Welsh were just beginning to adopt surnames which their Anglo-Norman neighbors had done generations before, so there is a lot of confusion among researchers about, not just Amy Popham, but others of her caste. My conclusions are based on Cartae et alia munimenta quae ad dominum de Glamorgan, but most especially on the Castleton entry in Vol. 4 of An Inventory of Ancient Monuments in Glamorgan. There were other references I found but those were the two I weighed more seriously.
RE: Sir John Popham Be wary of your unsourced Ancestry entries, they seem to proliferate like wildfire. Amy was a chief legatee in John's will, also she and her son Francis actually pursued the Popham interests with the Plymouth Company after his death, so she definitely outlived him. I use her vital dates as provided in the Douglas Walthew Rice's biography Sir John Popham 1531-1607, which I was able to order from a used bookstore out west.
On behalf of Find A Grave, My apologies for taking so long in getting them posted. Another person claimed them all and didn't do anything with the requests so I had to wait 2 weeks before I could post.
When I was taking the photos at St. Josephs, I found a marker in the same section and row for an Edward S. (02/08/1901 - 06/14/1947) and Victoria L. (03/26/1906 - 09/20/2002) FILOMEO. Would they be connected to yours? Photo available.
I also put up a photo for Earl Josiah Hoit at Sunset View. I usually check the requestor's memorials to make sure I'm getting everyone that is in the three cemeteries that I cover. The other one, Winifred Mary Adam(s)Johnson, Sunset View cemetery, Sunset Mausoleum and St. Josephs could not locate any records for her. Do you have an obit or DC that ties her to Sunset View cemetery?
Mary Hoit Hi Sue....I was the one who took the original photo of Mary's stone. The picture (or carving) at the head of the stone, is a picture of a finger pointing toward heaven (one definition of this, is that it is the hand of God pointing upward: "the reward of the righteous confirmation of life after death.")....I don't remember the exact words, but the line below the date, is how old Mary was at the time of her death (Years/Months/Days)....I hope to be going back to Forest Lawn soon, & I can try to find out the answers to your other 2 questions(unless someone beats me to it).
