Someone has established a duplicate memorial for this person in Gittings Mound Cemetery # 64093575, where I believe he may be actually buried. I thought you would want to check.

RE: Deming stone
I'm sorry, but I can't figure out why some of my photos rotate and some don't. I've tried redoing them--doesn't matter. It's come down to leaving them rotated, or simply deleting them. If I figure it out, I'll come back and fix it.
I'm from Duncan.

Melville's buried in Pittsfield Cemetery
The cemetery office confirmed that Henry (only) is buried at 18 Hope Mound. I will check the cemetery office to see if they have any other Melville's buried at Pittsfield Cemetery.

The next time I visit Pittsfield Cemetery, I will inquire about Melville's buried there and let you know.

Morewood's in Pittsfield Cemetery
Wayne, I called the local Herman Melville's Arrowhead Museum (413-442-1793) and they told me he is buried in the Bronx but didn't know which cemetery. You might be able to find him on Find A Grave. If you give them a call, they can explain the distant connection to Morewoods. He started explaining it to me, but I got confused.
The reference to 21 Terrace Grove: Terrace Grove is the section of Pittsfield Cemetery, and 21 is the lot number.

John Rowland Morewood
Think I solved one mystery. Per Family Search, 1900 US Census, Elizabeth City, Union, New Jersey, there were two John Rowland Morewood's. Looks like one is grandfather, born 1821 in England and the other a grandson, born 1880 in New Jersey. Do you want to post the memorials for all these people or I can:
Son, William Morewood (B1847 New York); William's wife, Maria Ganesvoort Morewood (B1849 New York; William and Maria's family: Daughter, Agnes Morewood (B1879 New Jersey); Son, John R. Morewood Jr. (B1880 New Jersey); Son, Thomas M. Morewood (B1882 New Jersey); Son, Alfred P. Morewood (B 1885 New Jersey); Daughter, Helen Ganesvoort Morewood (B1886 New Jersey); Daughter, Margaret T. Morewood (B1888 Mass); Son, Henry Ganesvoort Morewood (B1889 New Jersey); William's Father, John R. Morewood (B1821 England).

Morewood's in Pittsfield Cemetery
I photographed a lot of Morewood graves at 21 Terrace Grove in Pittsfield Cemetery.
You mentioned in Alfred Pierpont Morewood's memorial that you did not find evidence that he was married. Per Family Search, he was married to Sarah Langdon H. Hopkins on May 9, 1883 in Manhattan, NY. I have two Alfred Pierpont Morewood grave photos. I have a photo of Sarah's memorial.
Also, I have two John Rowland Morewood's (died 1903) and (1880-1916) - dates are different from your memorial. Could the second be his son?
Also, took photos of Anna Waller Morewood (1905-?), Helen Ganesvoort Morewood (1886-1970), Henry Ganesvoort Morewood (1894-1976), Margaret Thurston Morewood (1888-1963), Maria Ganesvoort Morewood (1849-1935) Thomas M. Morewood (1882-1950) and William Barlow Morewood (1847-1923).

RE: Robert Orr in Scotch Covenanter Cem.
Dear Mr. "Wayne", I send you an email to the address that you have on your profile (, and I have included a great deal of information regarding the ORR family plot at the Ohio cemetery. I also forgot to include "Son of S & M Orr" on my previous "Find-a-grave" message (sorry, but I didn't know how to edit my previous message)

RE: Robert Orr in Scotch Covenanter Cem.
Hi. Sorry if the photo was not clearer. Many of the gravestones are becoming very worn away by the weather, etc. This is what the grave stone says:

Robert W.
Died Jan 28, 1882
28 Y 8 M 1 D

The Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall shall lead them to living fountains of waters and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. Revelation 7:17

I will try to post another photo that may be a bit clearer.
Sincerely, Carol Porter

Request for Womer Cemetery in Smith County, Kansas
My 3 Grandchildren and I walked the entire Cemetery and there were no Headstones with the name of William Pounds.
I plan on contacting the Womer Cemetery Board and finding out what they know,if he is buried there, was there a Headstone at one time, or has there never been a Headstone...
This has to be done by slug-mail, but when I get a reply, I will let you know what information I receive...
Sorry I couldn't get a picture for you.

RE: Owen Chase
Hi Wayne,

Thanks for the updates.

The process is to link children to their parents and not the other way around, so the only way to link the daughter is to contact the memorial holder. (I am not able to do it.) It would be preferable to use the Edit tab rather than leave comments on a person's profile as it is a more efficient process. This allows for batch processing. Most volunteers prefer this since they receive so many updates.

Thank you!

Mammie Stidham
Hello. I am fulfilling your photo request. But I thought I'd share what I found and maybe you know something about that time period.

Mammie Stidham d. 11/4/18
Hicks G. Stidham interred 10/31/18 (no stone so no additional information)
Marjorie C. Worthington d.5/5/15 (dau of Wm & Margaret)
John T. Stidham d.10/27/18

The plots were purchased by Mr. Stidham (does not appear to be john t)

So the Stidhams all died within 2 weeks of each other. Do you know of any epidemic at that time?

I also found Velma Stidham. Mar 1918-Mar 1936 She was not near the others. Her plot was purchased by C. E. Williams.

Just fyi : John, Hicks and Mammie were misspelled stedham and stedhaum in the official cemetery book.

Please call the cemetery office and ask for the grave location. Photo requests cannot be fulfilled without Section, Range/Row and Lot numbers as cemetery is too big.
