I have decided to interject a little bit of my family history into this Southern Graves blog. You will know these posts at a glance because the tag This Time It's Personal will always be included. I plan to migrate applicable posts from my personal genealogy blog to this blog, as I wrestle with the decision as to whether or not to even keep the other blog. These posts will be concentrated on the final days of a particular ancestor, as to not deviate from the theme of this blog. In these posts, however, you might see just as many obituaries and death certificates as you do tombstones. For that, I hope you don't mind.
For you lovely readers who visit strictly for the cemetery art and histories, please don't run away -- or worry. That will always be the main focus of this blog. As I said, a perfect day for me includes hours spent walking and photographing a peaceful and picturesque cemetery. And even the overgrown and neglected ones hold those characteristics for me.
For my first This Time It's Personal post, I'd like to introduce you to a 3rd cousin. Originally posted last December on the Lincecum Lineage blog.
Sallie was laid to rest in Fairview Cemetery at Hubbard.
