Erma, great job on your blog you sure have done a lot of work on it.
I am honored that you used my Huey photos. I took them back in 1999. I would love to go back there sometime with my digital camera and get some better shots.

I had always heard about my great great grandfathers unique little house grave stone and was excited when I found it. I took pictures of all 4 sides of it. I should scan those sometime.

Sadly the stone of my great great grandmother, Mary Ann Leslie (Samuels 1st wife) was laying on the ground when I found it. I stood it up and held it up while my husband shot the picture.

Again, I am glad you found my entries at Find A Grave.
