A while ago I had posted on a baby Robert McNabb. There is a family of the McNabb's buried here in Richmond, Texas. I am taking pictures of the different graves and posting on http://www.findagrave.com/.

H.J. Morgan officiating. The deceased was the only child of Mrs. Carrie A. Nation and her first husband, Dr. Gloyd, who died in 1869 when the deceased was only six months old. Her mother married David Nation and moved to Richmond where the deceased was reared and married A.D. McNabb. Five children survive: A.D. of Washington, D.C.; and John McNabb of San Antonio; Mrs. Roscoe Fitch of Herman, Neb.; Mrs. C.O.

Tourist steps into history at hallowed Boston cemetery




Boston ....
This is one of the most fantastic cemeteries in the US. History lays here. I could of spent hours just wandering through out it. I wanted to see what I could find about it today so went to http://www.google.com/ and put Boston Cemetery in search. I came across this article dated February 11, 2009 and listed as " Tourist steps into history at hallowed Boston cemetery ". You can read the whole story at http://www.boston.com/news/local/breaking_news/2009/02/tourist_steps_i.html

Imagine wandering through this cemetery taking pictures and all of a sudden you fall into an underground area.
" The ground gave way, and the woman fell hip-deep into a hidden granite stairwell leading down into an unmarked brick crypt. " Luckily she was unhurt.
I would still be having nightmares.
Some where in this cities old cemeteries I have a distant grandmother buried. I would love to find where she is buried but I do not want to drop in and visit.
Thanks for stopping by .. Grace

The Mahlers Buried in Orchard Cemetery












What a beautiful set of old tombstones I found in Orchard Cemetery here in Texas. At a later date two small new flat gravestones with their names and the dates was added. The old graves are fading so it is a good protection. Generations from now we will still know who is buried in this small quiet cemetery just outside of Houston.
