RE: Elizabeth Jacobs
click on edit beside burial, then continue, then clear out old cemetery and put in the new cemetery name, state, county. Then just enter it.
You might want to correct Rebecca Bird also. She is actually in Emery which is the back of Lafontaine IOOF. Someone made a dupe of her. Once that is done, I will have her delete hers.
Thanks!!

The graves of Owen's parents (as well as other family members) have been located in a previously abandoned, private cemetery in Nassau County, Florida. I would like to provide you with their Memorial ID's so that you may link them. His father James T. Allbritton is memorial ID# 95982597 and his mother Margaret Boothe Allbritton is memorial ID# 95974737. Thanks.

On September 24, 2013 you added the subject memorial.

This is the same person as #37356929 added on May 21, 2009 as Elizabeth Hill. This memorial has since been corrected to show the correct name of Elizabeth Hill Daniel with added bio and family links.

The confusion is understandable and I am now attempting to correct and update the memorials for my Hill family ancestors. I would appreciate your deleting the subject duplicative memorial.

Thanks,

Baker Cemetery, Hernando County
Hi - I would like to ask you to edit the Baker Cemetery home page. The street address is not correct for starters. Secondly, the cemetery is on US government land behind the fire station on Lake Lindsey Road. Permission to access should come from the USDA managers. Audubon property adjacent is private and is posted no trespassing, so to suggest entrance across is not acceptable.

I appreciate your interest in the history of all of our Hernando cemeteries and those who reside in them.

Special thanks to Katherine Thacker for such a wonderful history of the Baker family!

I uploaded pictures of Baker Hill Cemetery this evening as my husband and I saw it in 1997. The cemetery was in great disrepair and heavily overgrown back then. My cousin, Sandy Boyes, recently orchestrated the repair of the headstones and the new headstone for John F. Baker commemorating his military service. The cemetery looks much better today and is now better represented by your picture.

Dear Mr. Post,

Thank you for posting information on Baker Hill Cemetery in Hernando County, FL. I'm a descendant of James and Mary Baker and have done extensive research on this family. I first visited this cemetery in 1997 and have pictures from my visit. Additionally I visited the cemetery just this past week and took new pictures.

There's some misinformation on your post. There are only four marked graves in the cemetery: Unnamed infant of John F. Baker dates unknown (far left grave); 2. Jincy Whitehurst Baker b. 24 Apr 1837 d. 1866 (to left of John F. Baker); John Franklin Baker b. 18 Feb 1827 d. 22 Mar 1877 (third in line); and Mary Baker b. 1792 d. 22 Dec 1858/1868(date was too worn to read back in 1997 - grave stands alone in front of other three). John F. Baker has two headstones; his original and a recently added new one that commemorates his military service.

It is not known if James Baker, Mary's husband, is buried there. A stone was never found for him, however it's highly suspected that he was laid to rest there. At one time Jincy's headstone was mistaken for James', but a picture taken years before my 1997 visit disproved it was James' grave.

The other two names you have listed as being buried in Baker Hill Cemetery are unknown to me. There has never been any physical proof of their graves in the cemetery.

It would be greatly appreciated if you would edit your information for this cemetery.

Thank you,

Katherine Cox Thacker

Thank You !
I was working on my family tree (Mary A Jameson) and noticed you had added a headstone photo for my distant relative, so wanted to thank you.
Also noticed you stomp around my old family grave areas of Hillsborough County Florida where I grew up as a "cracker" near Ruskin & Wimauma.
Good Florida Hunting & fishing spots are nearly gone now, with monster RV, Jeep, motorcycles, and condo developers crowding out the quiet and peaceful places to enjoy the blessings of the sunshine state.
With many high school friends who left for Vietnam and did not come back, I know well the distrust of citizens for a neglectful government who tried to close a distasteful chapter with a black granite wall.
Nevertheless, I am most glad for your return, pleased that you have people who care about you, and am appreciative of your service to our country. Thank You !

RE: Error in map for Old Cripe Cemetary in N. Manchester
It's much closer to being accurate now. I think it's a bit south of where you set the marker, in the thick of the trees you see on the satellite map. I'm not good at guessing distances in feet and I don't really see any landmarks to go by to nail it down further, other than to say that the gravestones are in the trees a bit south of where you placed it. In any case, this is a lot more accurate than where it was before, so thanks!

Dear Mr. Post,

I want to thank you for your part in helping me solve the mystery in my family of the Three Harris brothers "who died in the Civil War." As a veteran, yourself, I know you will appreciate this story

Actually it turns out, three brothers died and three served in the Civil War, but not the same three brothers. One brother died at the age of four and is buried in this cemetery. Two brothers, Simon and Marion Harris, died in the war and are two of the 15 wooden crosses in the South Pleasant Methodist Church Cemetery. The third, Elmore "Harry" Harris survived and lived until 1925 down in Texas.

I found Simon Harris fairly early on. He was in the 20th Indiana Infantry and did indeed die at Gettysburg, but I had a lot of trouble with William "Marion" Harris. Your entry for the crosses helped, narrowing it down to Fort Donelson, but the only Indiana unit with a William M. Harris at the battle was the 52nd. Except that unit showed him a deserter. However, a NYT newspaper account showed him to be wounded. Well, it turns out, a letter from the Adjutant General in Washington, DC inserted into his file a decade later showed that he actually died at the Union hospital in Mound City, Illinois of a form of smallpox.

The third brother, Elmore, showed up in early Censuses as Elmer with an approximate birth year, but the family always talked about a "Harry" Harris." However, there was no Harry or Henry in the Censuses. Following the Harry Harris trail, I found his headstone in Gatesville, Texas listing him as a "GAR Frontiersman" and a newspaper account listing him as a Union vet. I could find a Harry Harris who would have been young enough to be him. I did find an Elmore, which was awfully close to Elmer. Tracking Harry Harris in the 1900 Census, I found one in Gatesville Texas with a wife named Electra and some kids. A family history volume contained a picture of the children of Harry and Elektra. So, THIS was the guy. However, when I followed Harry Harris back to the 1880 Census (a fire destroyed the 1890 Census)I could not find Harry. On a hunch, I tried Elmore Harris and he pops up in Texas in the EXACT same spot. He's the same age and has the EXACT same wife and kids. Mystery solved.

Sorry for the lengthy explanation, but your posting of those 15 crosses in the South Pleasant Methodist Church cemetery played an absolutely essential part in being able to track down these family roots. All of these men were my great-great uncles through my mother's side.

Thank you, again, so very much

Allen

RE: Error in map for Old Cripe Cemetary in N. Manchester
Don't have coordinates, but it's located on the west side of the bend in the lane that leads north from the west side of the creek. (If you were heading west from N. Manchester, you'd turn right into the lane immediately after crossing the creek). That lane is shaped a bit like a sloppy, lazy J. If you move the marker to the west side of that lane, at about level with where the lane straightens out heading north, it will be pretty close. The cemetery is at the top of a footpath leading off of this lane, on a knoll that is slightly west of the lane and creek.

It's about straight above the first 1 in the 114 as I am looking at the map. Or I could say "Go halfway along the bend in the J, then due north to the level of where the lane begins to straighten out.

Not that anyone is going to be visiting cemeteries in this weather, but I thought I'd alert you to the error now because I probably won't remember to if I wait for warmer weather. If I can, I'll go there this spring and see if I can get GPS coordinates from my phone.

Error in map for Old Cripe Cemetary in N. Manchester
Hello,

I just joined Find-a-Grave and have been exploring the info and photos that have been posted for the Cripe tombstones located in Wabash Co, IN. Was delighted to find the "Old Cripe Cemetery" just off SR 114 west of N. Manchester listed, as I've always known it was there, have seen it from the highway, but not yet visited it. However, when I looked at where the map shows its location, I discovered the map is quite inaccurate. The GPS coordinates must be off, because the location on the map is way too far up the creek to the northeast of where the cemetery really lies.

It should show the cemetery as located just above SR 114 a tiny bit above and slightly to the right of the "N" in the "W1200 N" on the map. The cemetery is barely off of the highway, on the left side of the big bend in the lane leading north to the farmstead on whose land the cemetery sits (the lane that is shown leading off the highway to the north, above the "N".

If anyone tries to find this cemetery by following the location indicated on the map, they will have a heck of a difficult hike through undergrowth along Clear Creek (I've done that hike mushroom-hunting and it is nearly impassable!) and will likely end up deep in the woods, lost. (Though, interestingly, they might stumble upon the nearly buried foundation ruins of an old Cripe homestead and grist mill that belonged to some of my ancestors, the original Cripe homesteaders, some of whom are buried in this cemetery!)

Hello,
I noticed your profile, and just wanted to say "Thank you" for your service to our country.

You have been a lot of places and done a lot of things. Have you considered writing a book? Perhaps you have..??? In which case, I would love to read it, or if you have multiple books.

You have so much wisdom and life experience. I greatly value and respect people like that.

Respectfully,
