We’d like to introduce you to another one of the notable Forest Lawn residents you’ll get to meet when you come to see our holiday production, “It WAS A Wonderful Life!” Colonel George H. Selkirk (portrayed by James Heffron) was born in Buffalo in 1835. He studied the art of sculpture, but when the Civil War broke out, he enlisted as a First Lieutenant of Company D, 49th New York Volunteers. He served four years, becoming captain, major and colonel of his regiment, and was wounded in the wilderness at the fight called the "Bloody Angle." After the war Colonel Selkirk was one of the proprietors of the Buffalo Express for several years, before becoming secretary of the Buffalo Park Commission. He was married to Emily S. Peabody, who was born in 1845 and died in 1930. Their son, John E. Selkirk, was born in 1871 and became a prominent architect and builder. Colonel Selkirk died in 1925 and is buried in Section R at Forest Lawn. Don't miss this entertaining, engaging holiday event, with matinee perfo ...
Do you think with the arrogant, self righteous *** in Hollywood today we would ever find a person of substance like Jimmy Stewart? Not much of a chance in that. They have all the money they could ever want but would never speak well of the country that provided the avenue for them to reach their goals.
