Headstone for Thomas Foster Strahorn
Headstone for Thomas Foster Strahorn
Thomas, his second wife Rebecca Jane Kellogg, and their son Frank Kellog Strahorn are all buried in the same plot in Rosedale Cemetery, just west of downtown Los Angeles. I suspect the headstone was installed by his son Robert Edmund Strahorn after Robert became wealthy, since Thomas was a man of modest means. A smaller stone can be seen in front of the larger one, which reads, "T.F.S. Husband," possibly an earlier installation. No headstone is in evidence for Rebecca Jane Kellogg, but then she was not Robert Strahorn's mother. Robert's mother Rebecca Emmert has a substantial headstone in Boalsburg, Pennsylvania alongside her parents, possibly also paid for by Robert.

Carrie's inscription to Mrs. Underwood 28 Jul 1914 at Old Faithful Inn
Carrie's inscription to Mrs. Underwood 28 Jul 1914 at Old Faithful Inn
This image is from our copy of Fifteen Thousand Miles by Stage. The inscription was surely addressed to the newly-married Mary Elizabeth Smith, wife of architect Gilbert Stanly Underwood, who in addition designing many of the Grand Lodges of the National Parks, worked extensively with both the Union Pacific and the Oregon Short Line Railroads.

1810 US Census in Iredell, North Carolina
1810 US Census in Iredell, North Carolina
*There is no numeral 1 for John, age 50. We assume this is a transcription error. "Three copies of most federal censuses were created. The local census taker first created a draft copy as he walked from house to house to question the residents. He later copied by hand a second draft for the state, and a third copy for the federal government. Copying errors often resulted in slight differences between the various copies." -FamilySearch.org

Elijah Marlow was the son of Mark Marlow
