RE: Springfield Hill Stones
No, we didn't see Andrew Shannon's stone. We carefully tried to take photos of all of the stones that were not already on Find A Grave. Can't imagine that we missed him......but we may have.

Thomas Bryan
I left a new photo, taken yesterday, on his memorial. We brushed the stone some more and used a pencil to lightly enhance what was obvious. Nothing new to report.

RE: Thanks for the new Springfield Hill Cemetery photos
Jana, you have my permission to use the photos with my name being credited--thanks for asking. We plan to go back to Springfield and finish photographing the entire cemetery (almost done), so will take another look at the two stones--Jeremiah Shannon and Thomas Bryan. Here is how we believe Jeremiah's stone reads: "JEREMIAH C., son of ? C. Shannon, Died May 19, 1876, Aged 30 years, .....Forgotten." And, Thomas Bryan's stone seems to say "Sacred to the Memory of THOMAS BRYAN, who departed this life on Sunday the ? of Jan. AD 1846, aged 62(?) years, 8(?) months, and ? days." Will take a much closer look and see if we can gain any more insight. My husband pulled Evaline's stone out of the ground to read it, and then put it back. Thanks for writing....I'm encouraged to have helped you in your research.
