RE: Re: Nellie Henry Towers
Yep, that was me. When I saw your new listing for Nellie, I was curious about her husband and found the info so I went ahead and sent an edit. I wasn't sure if you would so just wanted to make sure it got done. :)

Hello fellow Find A Grave member,

I had planned on accepting your request to HILLCREST Memorial Park in Pickens, SC, however I spoke to a representative who was quick to inform me, and I quote, "HIPAA laws prevent anyone from obtaining burial plot information or taking pictures; only direct family members or the plot owners are allowed to do so."

I am familiar with HIPAA laws because I work in the healthcare field. To make sure that I had not missed any information, I reviewd the website No where on that site, could I find any information that would pertain to a cemetery, much less one refusing to give burial information or allowing photography. HIPAA laws are meant to protect your medical information, not the location of your burial spot. I also checked the Pickens County website, again, I did not find any information to support what the representative told me.

I contacted a few other local cemeteries to see if they would tell me the same thing and none of them knew anything about these supposed privacy laws. One of the other cemeteries was even maintained by a neighboring county. I would think if any cemetery office would know, it would be the one maintained by a government office!

By the conclusion of the call, the cemetery representative mumbled something about if the person making the Find A Grave request would call the cemetery office, give their relationship to the deceased, then the plot information might be released. He continued to mumble something about possibly taking pictures but it was almost entirely inaudible, then he hung up on me.

I ask that if you wish to continue with your request, call the Hillcrest Memorial Park office at 864-878-9312 to obtain the plot information. I am not sure of their exact hours, but I would suggest calling between 9:00am-5pm, EST.

RE: Murrell
I'm happy I was able to find Martha for you and provide a 2nd photo for Thomas. The previous appears to have been taken during the prolonged drought we had in this area. Everything is so much greener after we had good rain in the past year.

I've just discovered that my memorial for Mary Newton was a duplicate. The original memorial is here:

I have deleted my memorial.

RE: Murrell
It was my pleasure. It is always satisfying to find a proper stone, but sadly not everyone has one and the cemetery in Quanah is no exception. The folks at the city hall were very helpful in looking up each of the names on my list, confirming the plot numbers and then marking them on a map to help find them. There were several empty spaces there, some did have a small concrete square with the metal plate provided by the funeral home, some had names and dates on them, others did not. I looked at the spot on the map for James Hunter and in the vicinity of that section and could not spot his.

You are very welcome. Glad to do it. Interestingly, the Rowland grave sights appeared to be the first ones right behind the church.

Just wanted to let you know that I will try to remove some of the moss and get a better picture the next time I am at that cemetery.

RE: Trivett
Happy to be able to do this. Love taking photos and being able to share....have hundreds more to go through, so there may be more.

Your welcome. Thanks for making the comment about appearing next to William Cone. I usually always take pictures of people with the same surname and somehow missed Florence. Had to go back and get the picture, it really helped to know to look next to William

Okay I see that Henry passed away in Omaha but it was reported in the Lincoln Journal.

I'll get it right eventually.

Henry Harrison Lovell
No wonder I didn't find him. He passed away in Lincoln, Nebraska and my short sighted search only involved Omaha, Nebraska or Leavenworth, Kansas.

This is great.

Thank you.

Thank you for the edits you sent for Henry Harrison Lovell.

I was wondering if you have proof he passed away in Omaha.

The reason I question this city as his death place is that I cannot find an obituary that lists Omaha and in March of 1932 Henry was admitted to the National Home for Disabled Soldiers located in Leavenworth, Kansas. There is no information that shows Henry was discharged from the facility.

I have added the data you sent and given you credit for the information.

I really appreciate your additional help with this memorial.

I've been looking for this family for quite some time. Thank you.

RE: Eva Cochran Auton
At one point there was a metal mortuary marker marking her grave, but it has been lost over over time. I agree, it's always sad to find a loved one with an unmarked grave.

RE: Howard & Mae Hobbs
I understand. I don't run off down every single line either. But, Joseph Hon Jr's mother, Mary (my 6th great-grandmother) was taken captive by Shawnee Chief Blue Jacket and held for over 6 years by him. It is a very interesting story.

Yes, his full name is Theodore Lewis Augustein Hon. He was born in Mt Sterling, Montgomery County, Kentucky. His parents are Isaac P. Hon & Erminia Hanks-Hon. Isaac's parents are Joseph Hon Jr & Eleanor Cave-Hon. Joseph Jr, his mother, & 3 sisters were taken captive by Indians at the attack on Ruddle's Fort in Cynthiana, KY in 1780.
