Find A Grave Memorial# 42929266

I have transferred the memorial of your great-great-grandfather to you. I found his obituary in the Washington Post, but was unable to locate him in the Nationwide Grave Locator. I also checked the U.S. Veterans Gravesites, ca.1775-2006. Luckily, a volunteer found his stone and photographed it.

Karlie Wallace @ Vista
Hi! I'm the volunteer that 'works' Vista. My car is broken, and I am trying to find a bus route, since it is only a couple of miles from me. In the meantime, I have placed a photo of the entrance of the Park, together with an offering. But, unless the memorial is 'sponsored' the site will not allow another photo (the one of the grave that you requested) Anyway, I will keep you posted.

John Fulwood/Fullwood
Hi Vivienne,

Mr. John Thomas Fulwood is an interesting person, and I wish I knew more about him. Unfortunately, he is not listed in any of the interment records for Rose Hill and does not appear to be buried there. I've pulled the records several times for different photo requests (a number of people have requested his grave photo), each time hoping I'll find something I didn't find before. I've been told that there is a newspaper article about this man, but I haven't found it or seen it myself.

However, even though he's not listed in the interment records, Mr. Fulwood does have an association with Rose Hill Cemetery, albeit a bit mysterious. On June 10, 1849, a John Thomas Fulwood purchased 4 lots in Rose Hill: Lot 8, 9, 10, and 11 in Block 1 of the Holly Ridge section of the cemetery. I've also visited these four lots just to confirm that there isn't a grave for him. It appears the lots were sold off one by one, all after the Civil War, to different people.

Lot 8 was sold to D. Keating on February 15, 1893. The burials in this lot are: Dennis Keating (c. 1853 - 07/12/1903), James Keating (c. 1855 - 11/12/1900), and Mary Keating (c. 1829 - 02/23/1893). All are unmarked.

Lot 9 was sold to the Bennett family. The burials in this lot are: Martha Bennett (d. 05/02/1913), Carl C. Bennett, Sr. (c. 1889 - 10/20/1978, age 89), C.H. Bennett (04/02/1880 - 01/02/1924, age 44, unmarked grave), Charles F. Bennett "Father" (c. 1861 - 06/25/1912, age 51), Miss Louise Bennett (c. 1906 - 10/23/1933, age 27, unmarked grave), Mary Bennett "Mother" (01/23/1860 - 05/04/1913), and 1 non identified burial.

Lot 10 was sold to J.W. Sofge on May 30, 1904. The burial in this lot is: Clara B. Sofge "Wife of J.W. Sofge" (06/06/1865 - 04/21/1904). J.W. Sofge is not buried in this lot with his wife.

Lot 11 was sold to the Muecke family. The burials in this lot are: Sarah Allene Muecke (08/17/1883 - 05/30/1962), William F. Muecke (11/14/1880 - 04/17/1951).

I'm not sure if the unmarked burial in the Bennett lot is Mr. Fulwood or someone else. I spoke with two librarians at the local genealogical library as well; one has been there over 40 years. They had not heard of Mr. Fulwood, but we did some census searches and found the John Thomas who died in Macon in 1862. I believe he was originally from South Georgia. There was a John Thomas Fulwood living in Crawford County and a John Thomas Fulwood living in Houston County in 1860 as well, both counties are adjacent to Bibb County and Macon. I'm not sure which John Thomas purchased the four lots. I also checked the Rose Hill Soldier's Square records to see if the John Thomas who died in 1862 was buried there. I did not find his name in the 800 graves listed, but there were unknown Confederate burials there, so it is possible he could be one of those.

I'm sorry, I'm not sure if this is much help or not. I'm curious if you're a descendant of Mr. Fulwood - I would love to know more about this person and previous people who have requested his photo were not descendants, just interested in him after reading the newspaper article he apparently appears in.

RE: Photo permission

Sending you an email: will have something about George W. Carter being your 3rd GGFather in the subject line. Deals with us being Carter cousins :-)

Breese Stones
Hi Vivienne,

I tried to find Anna and Oscar's stones yesterday. I knew the names on surrounding stones and found several, but not all, and I thought I was in the wrong section. I did find and upload a picture of a stone for Grover and Charlotte Breese that has Lydia Cummins on the the other side. I'm sure there was nothing visible on the other two sides of the stone. I will go back and look around again - maybe the end of this week.

Judith Sachs
Mariah Thompson
Cemetery has her as Mary L Thompson DOD 21 Feb 1908 at 78 years 8 months 29 days. So those dates seem to mesh with your date of 1829 and 1908. There is no marker. She is in JE Lot 119 next to James Griswold.

Leone Cary
Vivian Open a request for the Pictures I only Found Franklin and Leone .. NOT Charles.. was not at that location.

Added by Jayne on Oct 20, 2010 11:40 AM

Vivian are you sure that your Claim opened on Carol and Charles Carey are at the Miami, Memorial Park Cemetery?
I went and they have no records of them there.
Call them at 305-274-0364

Your claim is still open, I did not want to claim and unclaimed them after with this note.

Jacob and Sabina Deppler
Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I also added a close up of Sabina's headstone too. They are actually hard to read when your standing in front of them due to the stone itself. I did type what each of them said in the discription of the photos. Hope this helps.

Dray Family
Hi! Just thought I'd let you know, the picture of the cemetery gate that you already had on the Dray memorials has the Dray family in it also. Look at the tree just to the inside of the left brick pillar, that is the tree in the Robert Dray photo. All Drays are lined up there. Beriah's stone is pictured on the front side of the tree and the others are behind it. Easy find!

Looking for Photo's

I am doing genealogical research on my family.

In particular, I am looking for tombstones of:

OWEN O. THOMAS, JR Died 1-16-1995

and FLORINE THOMAS Died 8-1-2003

I'd be very grateful for anything you can do to help me. I live in Utah, a bit far to get photos myself.
