Several years ago I found the headstone of my 3rd greatgrandmother, Tamesin Hall Glover, in Gaines, NY. Sometime after her death her husband, David Glover, moved west to Michigan. My aunt and uncle have black and white a photo of his headstone in tall grass, taken from a distance. Recently I discovered which cemetery he is in so yesterday I headed out to find it and get a better picture.
Long story short, I got lost (several times) and when I did finally find the cemetery there were no headstones in the portion of the row where he and several other family members should have been. I did walk through the entire cemetery and I checked along the edges of the woods for stones that had been tossed aside. I was quite disappointed.
The day was saved for me by Juliane’s granddaughter. She had welcomed me to her home for a lovely lunch and wonderful conversation. She has an exciting trip of her own coming up! The time passed too quickly as we chatted about many different things. I also very much enjoyed meeting her mother. She has written a bit more about our discussion of computers and FTM.
Thanks to you both for a wonderful afternoon!
I spent the rest of the day making more wrong turns. I did find the graves of some cousins. I spent a very long time in another cemetery without any luck despite having a map of the plots.
This morning I’ll visit a bit with my aunt and uncle and then I’m heading home.
