Birthday Wishes for cousin, Laura Tabeling ~


Jan. 29, 1900
Feb. 11, 1976
Saint Mary of the Woods Cemetery
Breckinridge Co., McQuady, Kentucky 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Remembering my 1st cousin, 2x removed. Laura was born on this day, the 29th of January, 1900, in Breckinridge Co., Kentucky, one-hundred thirteen years ago, today.

Little did I know in April of 2008, when we drove to Kentucky from California and found this wonderful cemetery and took this photo, that Laura was one of my cousins. I had just started doing my family history in 2008.

When I visited Saint Mary of the Woods cemetery, there were several TABELING grave sites and I was making sure I snapped photos of all their graves, not really knowing of our kinship, yet, if any. These photos have been tucked away on my computer since then.  Slowly, I am learning more and more of my Tabeling ancestors. Happy Birthday cousin, Laura ~

It is a good thing you had the foresight to photograph all the stones with the surname. I wish I had done the same the last time I went to the family cemetery in Massachusetts.

How wonderful it must have been to identify a cousin and discover that you had a photo of her grave marker in your collection! It never occurred to me to photograph graves of potential relatives. That's a terrific idea!
