The purpose in life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
One can tell the morals of a culture by the way they treat their dead. ~ Benjamin Franklin
To Err Is Human, To Correct Divine. If you come across any errors or have additions to the memorials I maintain, please let me know. I strive to provide accurate information and will be happy to make any changes necessary.
So many questions, yet, so few left to ask.

LAST, BUT CERTAINLY, NOT LEAST:
Life is not a journey to the grave, with the intention of arriving safely, in a well-preserved body. Rather to slide in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming.."WOW, that was a Great Ride!"

I was at the Smithfield Cemetery today looking for a particular grave when I came across a number of Autreys. If you will provide me with an email address, I will gladly forward what I found (incase they belong to you).

I particularly like the African quote, "when an old person dies, a library burns." Oh, so very true and heartbreaking to genealogists!

Robert was tough to find, since he went my his middle name. Glad I found him. I even asked the sexton and he said there was no record of Robert with the year I gave him. I will get the wife posted. :o)
