  1. I see a wine-covered velvet runner draped across it, some jewel-encrusted goblets, a wrought iron candelabra, and a decanter of something delicious... ready for a date with Dracula!

  2. I have been researching the Brady line of Adelaide Brady and much of what you have on her is incorrect. If you like please contact me and I will send you a correction. Adelaide is buried in the Three Rivers Cem. in Okay, Ok. I know because I have a picture of her stone. Also Thomas F. Brewer is buried at Braggs, Ok. on his families land.
