The Douglas and Pouncy Graves

Monday 7th September 2015

This afternoon Val, Billy, Barney (our mascot) and Bruce were very pleased to show Lori Douglas and her sister Cathy Vitale two of their family graves. They are visiting from Chicago and were delighted to see them and afterwards Val gave them a short guided tour of the Cemetery. We all then retired to The Hawthorns Café for some light refreshments during which Lori kindly presented FoSOC with a very generous donation. Bruce then gave them a lift to the Southampton Central Library to collect some prints of old pictures that Lori had pre-ordered from the City Archives. After numerous emails it was great to finally meet them and the FoSOC research team are thrilled to have been of help to them in their quest. What a lovely day. 'Onwards and Upwards'.
