52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks – 17 – Cemetery



Sorry but I missed week 15 and 16, may get back to them later, but decided it was better to go ahead and do 17 and go on from there. This photo is of a local cemetery. None of my ancestors are buried there, but I do have a 2nd gt-grandaunt, Mary Ann (England) Dillard, and a 1st cousin 3 times removed, Eliza Jane (England) Lebow, in that cemetery.

I feel fortunate that I have been able to visit many of the burial places of my ancestors. My parents and grandparents are all buried close enough to where I live (Lane County, Oregon) that I can visit their graves each Memorial Day, as well as one set of 2nd gt-grandparents.

Through the years I have been able to visit all the graves on the following list, except 3 (2 gt-grandparents in Wisconsin and 2nd gt-grandmother in Steven County Kansas.) I posted photos of four of the cemeteries  on May 29 and 30 in 2017 (Alford, Rest Haven, Creswell and Oak Creek)

Here is a chart of 4 generations with their names (women's maiden names), locations (Cemetery, County and State) and my relationship to them.
