Blogger is giving me fits today...

Several of the blogs I read hosted at Blogger are having trouble verifying my LiveJournal Open ID credentials as I post comments today.

On some of them, four tries before I was allowed to leave a comment.

I'm persistent. Comments were left.

But I was thinking of moving my everything else blog over to Blogger, and I wouldn't want other folks getting frustrated when they try to use Open ID to leave a comment, and just give up.

Anyone else going through multiple attempts for Open ID verification? If so, details please...

Maybe it's just a Blogger/LJ thing.

Sandlin Cemetery, Ola, Yell County, AR

I went there in search of the grave of Saba Ann Burris Keeton, daughter of John Burris and Cynthia Ann Ashmore.

While I was walking the cemetery, I had to take some other photos.

Those stones were in the older part of this still active cemetery. So I figured Saba's stone would be there. She died on 13 Mar 1912.

It was - although it took me a few moments to read the inscription on the deteriorating limestone.

Limestone was a really popular stone for gravestones in Arkansas at one time. I imagine a lot of that had to do with how clean and pure a newly carved limestone gravestone looks.

Not so much after 99 years...

I got bonus with this one.

Saba's daughter, Florence Ellen Keeton Ray, is buried there also, and her information was on the stone as well, under Saba's.

Who apparently was called Anna.

So I learned quite a few things this trip.

But still do not know if the townfolk in Ola unearthed the time capsule in 1980.

Although they did memorialize it.

In the cemetery.
