RE: Alice Dodson Shadden's memorial 31049826
Thanks I do it for the love and am winding down now due to age/health but I also love to please folks. I should be dead if I was average from that fall on the thorns but did not even visit the medical folks. My Doc hates me because I don't follow his orders even with heart issues (HBP, etc). I think the more active we are the more healthful we are. They grow and maintain wimpy people so they will have more work.

RE: Alice Shadden
You have my permission Ghost Town Gal. I spent a lot of blood and money to get there (160 mile trip) but that makes the photos all the more valuable for me and you. Glad for you to have them. Enjoy!
If you nave not seen this (my) site its really where I post my research:

I had to ride a cattle truck back in the muddy woodland (2 miles) to get those photos and while trying to locate this small cemetery my boot became hung in a rocky crevice and I took a fierce tumble that left my right hand full of rotten yellow-wood thorns and my best camera broken from the dampness. Opps I forgot to get a Tetanus Shot, but must have survived that! Still I rumble on in spite of 70+ years. Its a mission not even I understand, but only respond too.

Sorry for the mud on the tombstones. It was very wet and I had to dig the stones up and set them back up. I reset Alice's stone so it should now stand once again.
I may go back there some day and improve the photos.

Have a great one.

RE: Ernest Swift
Thanks, I did get the email, but have been so busy with selling my moms house, a sick cat, trying to keep up with volunteering at the food pantry, genealogy and church. I did look for the article and I do have the original. I learned something new about my grandfather. Thank you.

Hi, my name is Susan Swanson and Ernie is my grandfather. I thought I had most of the information on him when he was a game warden, Assistant Director of Fish and Wildlife Federation and Director of Wisconsin Conservation but when I saw your flowers I asked my mom if she recalled anything that Ernie did for the the Boundary Waters. Where did you find this information.
Also are you related to the Swifts or Tarrs or Flannums? Would love to hear what you have. Thanks

forgot to tell you to go to - to all of Wayne Austin's work for southern Tennessee. He and his team have worked over five years. I am one of his team.
Best Wishes,

Hello GTG: Thanks for your "educational" entry regarding Serrano the Educated Horse. I also miss the Knott's Berry Farm of the past. I enjoyed many fond childhood memories there. Calico Ghost Town out in Yermo still offers a bit of the flavor of the original park. Best regards, Frank (in Pitsfield, Mass.)

John Weizer
p.s. Forgot to add . . . it appears he was a "Furnisher Stone" prior to real estate. Perhaps he worked closely with his friend providing headstones??

John Weizer
Saw your Find-a-Grave request for info on this person/family and wanted to share that John Weizer was a friend of my Great-Grandfather, Stephen A Jakab Sr (b. 1869 Hungary). John was a witness at my Grt-Grandfather's marriage to Barbara Kertesz on Feb 5, 1894 at St Elizabeth Church, Buckeye Rd, Cleveland Ohio. My Grt-Grandfather owned the S.A. Jakab Funeral Home and it appears John's burial was handled by same. Small world!

RE: Lansford Warren Hastings Memorial #66464990
No, you can keep the site. Yes, my husband's great-great grandfather Ephraim Hastings was Lansford's brother.
