I think it has to be yet another photograph (see previous post) sent by a cousin. I have been participating on www.findagrave.com for almost 8 years now. I have created memorials for many of my relatives and have added records and/or pictures of headstones for some of the cemeteries near where I live. Like many of my fellow genealogists, I am somewhat of a graveyard nut.
This year, a cousin saw my memorial for Isaiah Lincoln Dow, my great-great grandfather on my mother's side. She had added a memorial for Isaiah's mother and father, Elizabeth Milburn Dow and Oliver Buffum Dow. She emailed me and told me that she had added Isaiah's parents (my 3rd-great-grandparents) including pictures of their headstones and a picture of Elizabeth herself! She graciously sent me a copy of the photo.
On the left is my Elizabeth Milburn Dow and the right is her sister Mary Milburn. I wonderful photo that I could only have dreamed of having. And what makes it extra special for me is that I think my mom looks alot like Elizabeth. I'm not sure she agrees but there you go. What do you think?
I can't thank Lisa enough. She created Elizabeth's memorial, added a picture of the headstone, added a picture of Elizabeth and then had the kind and generous idea to email me because she could tell I was a relative. Aren't cousins great!
