Bio and Links
I am retired and loving it! Originally from S.TX, but have lived in Nev, Idaho, Montana, Ca., and for the last 23 years ,in SE Connecticut.I have a BA in History and Sociology, so worked in the casino industry for nearly 40 years.My love has always been History and I really love doing research . My ancestors were "all American"...Irish- Roumanian Jewish on my Mom's side, and Irish- Hispanic- Native American on Dad's side.
When I go to photograph a request, I will usually take more photos of the cemetery, if seemingly related graves haven't already been posted. Just ask for the management to be transferred!

RE: Agnes Bowen headstone
Hi, yes I can go back but not for a couple of months or more. There is tons of snow and the cemetery is on the top of a hill and hard to get to. But I will head out again when the snow clears and roads are better. I live about 35 miles away and don't venture very far in the winter. I will see if I can find anything at my local library which is the home of our local genealogical society. Thank you for your kind of research, but my folks are all out of Virginia.

Agnes Bowen headstone
Sorry, I don't have any further information about Agnes Bowen or her husband. Greenwood was one of the cemeteries I walked to take photos.

Headstone photo for Dr. Allen Wylie
Mrs. Preston, you posted a headstone photo for Dr. Allen Wylie to memorial #19338500, created May 11, 2007, but there is an earlier memorial for Dr. Allen, created Aug 06, 2005 (#11489844). Please consider transferring your photo to the earlier memorial, so the other may be deleted as a duplicate.

Thank you,

Thank you so much for your search effort. I know what it's like to search and come away without success.

If I do get any additional information I will pass on to you!
