Daisy was born to Ellmer Bright & Malissa HUNT. She was the only surviving child of 3 born to this couple. By the age of 10, Daisy had lost her twin (died at birth), a younger sister, and both parents. You can read her story here Surname Saturday – Who was Daisy Bright?
Charles Hall & his wife Daisy had 3 children, 2 boys and a girl; Dorothy Louise, Robert Walton and Gordon Charles (my husband’s father).
Charles died on 25 Mar 1953 in San Diego, San Diego Co., California. He had just turned 75. Had he lived just 7 more months, he and Daisy would have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.
Daisy, sadly, died just 7 months after Charles, on 23 Oct 1953, at the age of 71.
I imagine it was a sad time for their 3 children, extended family and friends.
Charles and Daisy are buried together at Mt. Hope Cemetery in San Diego, California. My husband and I have been to their gravesites to visit them.

A very interesting bit of your husband's ancestors history...and I'm glad that you have visited their graves. I sometimes feel very sad at gravesites, realizing I missed knowing these people to whom I owe my existence, but there are certainly a lot of ancestors, and not a many graves, so any that I can find are truly rare.ReplyDelete
Thanks for your comment. I find that I sometimes feel melancholy at cemeteries. But, I also feel happy that I’ve located their final resting place and glad I can honor them. I always hope that I honor them.Delete
