Blog Reader to Blog to Flickr to Headstone Photos

April 14, 2011

Just a short note of Thanks to Blogger Gale Wall of the Digital Cemetery Walk Blog.

While reading my daily Blog Reader messages, I came to a recent Blog post by Gale. I have been following this blog for a while, as I also have interests in Cemeteries. The posting was about updating her Flickr page(s) and how to utilize what she has posted on Flickr. I have been working on doing the same thing.

When I looked, what caught my eye was the Kansas Cemeteries. Looked down and saw Lyons County, where my ancestors lived. The cemetery was Cottonwood, also a name that was familiar to me. Scrolling though the 60 some odd photos was my 2nd Great Grandfather’s (Job Whitall Reeve) stone and a couple of his children.

A couple of clues for me, 1) confirmation of where they were buried, 2) the stone flat on the ground would confirm to me their Quaker Heritage, and 3) a couple of dates were confirmed.

A special Thank You to Gale for sharing her photographs Online, so “we” can find them.
