My “cousin” sent another obituary (via email).
Sadly Ron passed away: RIP: Former board member of the Fellowship of the Brethren Genealogists, Ron McAdams. Deep sympathy out to Alberta Denlinger McAdams and classmates: Read Ronald Lee McAdams’s Obituary & Leave Condolences.
We are losing all the “old-timers” concerned with preserving our Brethren heritage. My desire is to dash full-speed to my other computer and document his life and attach the details with his forebearers. I enjoyed many pleasant hours with Ron while volunteering at the Fellowship of Brethren Genealogist booth at Church of the Brethren Annual Conference(s). Below is my first display, in 1996, in Long Beach, California. Regrettably, I can’t make the picture larger because it is copied from another blog. (Regrettably, I don’t have access to a lot of my pictures from decades past.)
Should I be concerned? At eighty-four-and-one-half will I be joining “cousins” in a little corner of Heaven where we greet one another–and the Brethren Pathfinders?? I’d like to think I have years ahead of me to meticulously document the forest of Christian men and women. The scriptures suggest “three score and ten“ and I’m long past seventy. You might sympathize with my urgency to document “family.”
