GREAT-GREAT GRANDDAUGHTER PAYS FUNERAL BILL OF ANCESTORS
By Roxann Hoover
With Love for my GG-Grandfather and GG-Grandmother Joseph and Elizabeth Louisa Burgy Baker.
When we are researching family history, one never knows what the past will offer us. Some of us find laughter and joy and then some of us find tears rolling down over our face like a water fall. The following letter will describe my experience when researching family history.
Toothman Funeral Home, August 10, 2001
My Name is Roxann
Judy Hoover and I am writing you this very unusual letter. I started
researching my family history about six months ago and I must say the things I
have found out have been quit interesting. Through death
certificates I found my GG-GrandParents died in
My GG-Grandparents were Mr. Joseph Baker born September 6, 1848 death October 28, 1935 and Mrs. Elizabeth Louisa Burgy Baker born April 3, 1843 death July 17, 1928.
I am sending you a copy of a check from Robert and Karen Burgy.. Robert will also be helping pay the remaining balance. Robert is the GG-Nephew of Joseph and Elizabeth Burgy Baker. We ask that you please except the enclosed check for $61.56. If at all possible we would like to ask the account be marked paid in full and also if we could please have a receipt showing the account is finally paid off..
Thank you for your time,
GG-GrandDaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Baker
Roxann Judy Hoover, Husband: Dr. Kevan R. Hoover
GG-Nephew of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Baker
Robert Burgy, Wife: Karen Burgy
