The Scottish Great Aunts
This stone cost $250 dollars and was created by the Lawson Granite Company. The dates and names match the document. It was paid for by Margaret but my husband's aunt Janet filled in the final dates and took care of the final arrangements. I seldom see such meticulous paperwork. I admire that.
In the envelope was also naturalization papers. It was a genealogists jackpot!

This post covers just this stone but the stories tell so much more. But, for now, it is great to see this stone in Fall River's Oak Grove Cemetery. His family is spread out over this huge city cemetery and my knees and back thank Glenn for not having to struggle and find it.
They lived a long life and worked hard. What more could we ask of our immigrant ancestors?
