Possible incorrect name.
I think you might have the wrong name for a certain individual. Robert Gill Mills Dunovant. I'm pretty sure that this is Richard Gill Mills Donovant not Robert. According to a couple of books I have, one of which has his picture in it. The person you have listed as Robert, should be Richard. Please check it out. Thanks.

My pleasure to post a pic of Wm. Taliafarro's grave. I would be interested in knowing more about him as I believe him to be Confederte Veteran that served in Company C of the 18th Louisiana Infantry Regiment. Are you able to verify this information? Thanks!

RE: Brooks Cemetery
Hi Marshall,

Annie Humphries Eskew was my great grandmother. She died when my grandmother was 5 or 6. Her husband was John Bunyun Eskew. He's buried in Eden Cemetery. My mom and her sisters only recently rediscovered the Brooks Cemetery with the help of a cousin. The cemetery is only about 30' by 30' and is located in the middle of a hunting club. Only the headstones that I posted have been found. The Eskew's stones are all made the same way, so we think they were all replaced at the same time. Mary's broken stone is the only one that's been found. They continue to go and work on the cemetery when they can. The last time, I went with them and took a 2 ft. screwdriver to try and find some more headstones by poking around in the ground but haven't found anymore yet. There is room for a few more graves but no one knows if there is. I'm going to pass your message on to my mother and if she know's anything, I'll be glad to let you know.

RE: Findagrave
Oops! This is the same person. She is in the Friendship Church cemetery. I was posting others in the Old Saline Cemetery. By mistake I added her to the old saline instead of Friendship. I have deleted. Thanks for catching that.

I have claimed your request for a photo of the marker. If there is an indication of unmarked it means that there is no stone. However, I know the lady that maintains the records for the cemetery so I will contact her on Monday. Ross

RE: Dunovant
Thank you.

This is no doubt quite a unique cemetery. My partner and I have been looking for this cemetery for several months. We thought we had found it about a month ago but there were no Donovant's buried there. That turned out to be a slave cemetery. We worked with the folks at Chester County Library who referred us to a man who is part of the Chester County Historical Society. We found him and he gave us the directions. It is located way back in the woods about 3/4 of a mile from Highway 9 east of Chester.

My partner -semurdock - has the rest of the cemetery pictures and will be posting them. We also found 2 people who are buried there that are not listed on Find A Grave. He will add them. The man at Historical Society will be an excellent resource for you and he has a lot of pictures. My partner will send you his name and number. If you don't get that info over the next couple of days, let me know.

Nice experience.

Esset Stark
You requested a photo for my great grandfather Esset Academus Stark. Do you know much about him? I am actually trying to get information about his father Norbourne Perry Stark (N. P. Stark). He was born to Adin Stark / Elanor Stillwell in Shelby County, KY in 1819. He migrated to Texas around 1850 and lived and died in the northeast corner of Texas just west of Arkansas (Red River area). Not sure if you know much about him but or why he left KY for Texas but thought I would give it a shot.

Big Hickory Cemetery
I wanted to tell you about Big Hickory Cemetery. The cemtery is getting overgrown by small pine saplings which are scattered through out this small cemetery. And is grown up in weeds as well. There are some of the headsones that have fallen over. I did not know if you were a relative of the Hollensworth family or not. But if something is not done to this cemetery soon, alot of the headstones will be ruined by the growth of pine trees.

RE: Phillip/Mary Tyler
No, I'm sorry, but my summer has been kind of crazy and I've had to put my graving interests on the shelf for a while. As long as you keep the requests on the Evergreens page (and I think they may stay there indefinitely), if I do get a chance to go in the next couple months, I promise to see what I can find!
