My Adventure Today

First of all, I'm back! I'm done with school (for this year), and I spent my first week of summer vacation totally vegged. Now I'm ready to get back to work! Today, that meant a little day trip up to Oklahoma City, followed by a drive to nearby El Reno, Oklahoma. More about El Reno tomorrow.
My first destination was Memorial Park Cemetery in OKC, because I had found this little girl on findagrave.com:

What an incredible testament to Ginger's star power in 1940, what I consider the peak of her career. Unfortunately, little Ginger died when she was four, and her little brother died on the same day:

I'm going to search some records to see if I can find what happened to them. Their mother is also next to them, but she passed in December of last year.

Tomorrow...something even more Ginger-related! Who would have thought that all this stuff could have come out of Central Oklahoma?!

  1. That's so sad, both on the same day.

  2. Great to hear you are done for the year, Maggie! Hope summer is a great one for you!

    ...man, the siblings story is very sad...must have been a car accident or a house fire or something tragic like that for them to die on the same day...but it is very cool that she was named after Ginger...

    Have a Gingery Weekend, Maggie!!!
