Tombstone Tuesday: Peace, Perfect Peace


This is another tombstone of members of the Pooley family, following on from last week, at St. Peter’s, Mithian, Cornwall.

The Inscription is as follows:

In Loving Memory

who died at

Barton, Penstraze

July 28th 1923

Aged 69 years


Peace, Perfect Peace


Also of

Elizabeth Pooley

Beloved wife of the above

who died Sept 13th 1929

As far as I know this family is not connected to me or my man Paul’s family, although he has family at rest in this churchyard.

    I have somehow stumbled onto your Mithian grave photos. My ancestors are buried there and I have been trying for years to see if there are any related photos of that Family. The surname is Thomas. James, Mary Jane, Elizabeth and more! Would appreciate hearing from you.

      Hallo Gary,

      Thanks for visiting my blog and for your comments. I apologise for the very long delay in replying to you – I see you wrote here in August!! Family commitments have meant that I have been unable to get to my blogs or add posts so feel quite bad that you have waited so long for an answer!!

      Because of the above, we haven’t had any chance to get back to visit the church at Mithian, but do intend to as soon as possible. When we go I will certainly look out for any of your ancestors and take photos and notes if I come across any and will then pass those onto you.

      Thanks again for your visit and I hope I am forgiven for the terrible delay in getting back to you?

      Kind regards,

      Christine (rootsresearcherrabbit)

    Many of my ancestors were of the POOLEY Family. How do I make contact with you?

      Hallo again Gary,

      I have just answered your earlier comment and will look out for your ancestors’ graves when we next visit Mithian. We will also see if there are more graves for the Pooley family.

      You can contact me at readc13_99@excite.co.uk and if you could put Re: Graveyard Rabbit in the subject line that would be helpful.

      Kind regards,

      Christine (rootsresearcherrabbit)
