Letters to the editor: To all the married ladies (or relatives of)

When I go for a walk, I usually go through the cemetery in the small town where I’ve lived forever. I am saddened to look at the tombstone’s names of most of the married ladies without their maiden names. They belonged to another family for many years before marriage and they might not be remembered by their married name (or there may be more than one). When you are planning ahead for that time, please consider putting your name, your mother’s, your wife’s, or any married female’s maiden name along with the married name on the memorial. It would also be a help those who work on genealogy studies. Also including the names of the children would be an aid to connecting families. I would also like to recommend that the sales persons who sell the memorials suggest the option of including the maiden name as well as the children’s names on the memorial.
