    Extract from "The Nelson Dispatch"2001
    I have this year paid two visits to Guernsey & on both occasions i have gone to the churchyard of Ste Marie du Castel to see the grave of Admiral Lord de Saumarez.On my second visit in Mar 2001,my eye was drawn to a grave nearby which contains the remains of servants of the Saumarez family.On this grave among other names ,it was with a shiver of recognition that i saw the following
    [center]Also of --Patrick O,Brian who was a faithful and most trustworthy servant in the family for 56 years

    The tomb also contained the body of O,Brians wife Mary.
    Coincidence,or did Patrick Russ once stand there
    ?

    Especially as the spelling of O'Brian is less common.

    Yes, wasn't that one of the critisisms of O'Brian, that he spelled "O'Brien" wrongly? One would think that such a detail oriented gent as Mr. O'Brian would've known what's what with the Irish names. Surprising this didn't make it into the excellent autobiography (or more likely I missed it).

    Hello, BTW! Smile
