    1836 · Remember the Alamo
    Age 4
    Being a monumental event in the Texas Revolution, The Battle of the Alamo was a thirteen-day battle at the Alamo Mission near San Antonio. In the early morning of the final battle, the Mexican Army advanced on the Alamo. Quickly being overrun, the Texian Soldiers quickly withdrew inside the building. The battle has often been overshadowed by events from the Mexican–American War, But the Alamo gradually became known as a national battle site and later named an official Texas State Shrine.

    Find A Grave website photo indicates establishment of the cemetery in 1848. Located at the NE corner of 4th Avenue and N Street. Salt Lake City Cemetery is in The Avenues neighborhood of Salt Lake City, Utah. Approximately 120,000 persons are buried in the cemetery. Many religious leaders and politicians, particularly many leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) lie in the cemetery. It encompasses over 250 acres and contains 9 1?2 miles of roads. It is the largest city-operated cemetery in the United States. The first burial occurred on September 27, 1847, when George Wallace buried his child, Mary Wallace. The burial was two months after the Mormon pioneers had settled the Salt Lake Valley. In 1849, George Wallace, Daniel Wells, and Joseph Heywood surveyed 20 acres at the same site for the area's burial grounds. In 1851, Salt Lake City was incorporated and the 20 acres officially became the Salt Lake City Cemetery with George Wallace as its first sexton.
    1854 · The Crimean War
    Age 22
    The Crimean War was fought between Russia and an alliance of Britain, France, Sardinia and Turkey on the Crimean Peninsula. Russia had put pressure on Turkey which threatened British interests in the Middle East.

    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from a lost or unidentified place, probably in Lancashire. This English surname has been established in Ireland (Dublin) since the 14th century.English: variant of Starkin, itself perhaps from an unrecorded Old French personal name Starkin, a pet form of ancient Germanic names beginning in Stark- ‘strong’, such as Starc(w)ulf and Starcher, both of which appear in 1086 as names of Domesday Book tenants in East Anglia: Starcolf (Norfolk) and Starker (Suffolk). However, no medieval evidence for Starkin as a personal name or a surname has been found. An alternative possibility is a derivation from an unrecorded Middle English starking ‘strong one’ (see Stark ), but in the absence of any medieval evidence this is highly conjectural.Altered form of German Starke , written thus to preserve the second syllable.
