Reminder for William Montgomery Monsell
Hi! Regarding your photo request, can you please contact the cemetery and obtain the Section, Lot, and Grave Number information, and then post it to your request? Please also ask if there is a grave marker and add that information to your photo request and/or memorial. The Find A Grave FAQs state the photo requestor is responsible to provide this information.

Elmwood Cemetery: (708) 453-0273

This cemetery provides extremely limited assistance to photo volunteers with finding a grave's location. Last year I was able to fulfill almost 200 photo requests at Elmwood through this process. Because the lots in this cemetery are poorly marked, almost no one else ever photographs here. I have only had success here because I have spent literally weeks at a time to learn the intricacies of the layout of this cemetery.

Thank you for helping me to help you.

Info for William Monsell
Hi! Can you please call or e-mail the cemetery and ask for the Section, Lot, and Grave numbers and then add this information to the online record? This helps the photo volunteers to find the grave marker.

Elmwood is a huge cemetery and this information is needed in order to fulfill your request. I have located more than 50 graves at Elmwood for Find A Grave, but I cannot find a grave for you without the burial plot information.

Thank you! Ace

RE: Mary Jane
Hi Jim,

Thanks for the wonderful bio, I'll print it out and take it to my Mom tomorrow, she'll be thrilled to read it. She does remember that Mary had two sons, but doesn't remember their names so maybe this will spark her memory. She does talk a lot about how she loved to go to her "Grandma Mary's" house when she was young.

Best regards,

Mary Jane Monsell Daughenbaugh
Dear James,

I would like to have your permission to make a copy of Mary's photo on her memorial? I would like to take it to show my mother, Barbara Harrison, who as a little girl, was a neighbor of Mary's and she spent many hours with Mary visiting. Mary gave my mom a tiny little walnut chest with porcelain knobs that my mother carried all the way home when she was six years old and still has to this day in a special corner of her home. My mother is now 84 years old and still remembers Mary and how she used to call her Grandma Mary. She will be thrilled to see her picture.

One large stone is between George and Sarah. The one to the far left is their daughter Florence. I created a memorial for her and posted pictures of her stone .

RE: Morrison/Woodland Cemetery
Hi Jim,
I was glad I could post the headstone for James Morrison, unfortunately all I had found was the stone with his initials. I checked around for any more Morrisons in the same section and lot and there were none there. There were grassy empty spaces, but no stone though. I do know Sarah J was buried next to James Morrison and I did not find Charles anywhere in Woodland. The only Charles Morrison I saw was one who died in 1896 and he was only 1 week old, and he was in a different section and lot.

Lucy Morrison
On the stone it looks like daughter of M. & S. Morrison, possibly.

Sorry--I meant JOHN Morrison's grave isn't marked.

RE: Morrison, Troy Cemetery
I hope it was okay to also transfer the Safreed's. Would you want their sons also? I THINK I read Lucy on the stone....since she was next to Samuel could she be his wife? I didn't have any stone cleaning tools with me or the photos might have been more READABLE. If I am ever back that way, I may be able to improve on those pictures. Jill MacRae

RE: Troy Cemetery
Hi Jim,
I've been back to Troy Cemetery and took some more Morrison pictures for you. I am hoping you have some better facts on them than I could read off the stones. I would be happy to transfer any or all of them to you. Jill MacRae

Troy Cemetery
Hi Jim,
I will transfer this memorial to you as I'm not related. I was just poking around in some Athens County Cemeteries looking for anyone named Owens. Do you happen to know where anyone named OWENS or OWEN is buried in Athens County. They probably died in the 1880's. Thanks, Jill MacRae

Hi Jim, Glad you took the "bait".I posted my David Morrison with links, hoping you might see it eventually. I tried to email you several times but my new address bounced. I sold my barn over a year ago, and now live in central Bucks. Found an interesting possible lead on Alexander (2).
all the best, Jim Turner
