David Merritt
After over a year of looking I finally found the David Merritt you have been looking for. I was beginning to think her was not in Locust Grove but as I was out hunting today I finally stumbled upon him.
I'm only going to post his veterans marker for now. Its been raining here today and the family stone is wet and not taking a very good pic. So I will retake that tomorrow as I think its going to be a nice day.

Donna Schulz
Rev. Obadiah Holmes
My name is Donna Schulz. I would like your permission to use the photo you submitted of Rev. Obadiah Holmes headstone in my tree. This awesome man was my 9x grandfather and it would mean a lot to be able to use this photo on my tree.
Are you related to him? Have you heard the story of his public beating? What a devote man of God!
Thank you for your consideration.

Dear James,
At noon, darkness fell across the whole land until three o'clock. Then, at that time Jesus called out with a loud voice, "My God, my God, why have You forsaken Me?"

Today is Good Friday, one of the saddest yet the most joyful days of the year. For many years on Good Friday the weather has changed to dark sky's and the winds rolled in. It lasts about an hour. I have always thought that God was reminding me of that moment when Jesus left this earth. The suffering was over, the debt was paid for us. The Lamb of God had fulfilled his destiny and salvation was ours to claim through repentance of our sins.

Just now, in Florida, it rained and the sky was ominous and threatening. Lightning danced across the sky with loud claps of thunder. It rolled in from the west and as it came upon the house it was beautiful, exciting, and if orchestrated by Steven Spielberg could not have been more beautifully displayed.

The rain came after and then the glorious rainbow with the sun gleaming colors of purple, green, yellow and blue. God's rainbow with the meaning of "he loves us, he keeps his word and he will be there in the evening of our lives."

As I watched the weather roll by and the sun's return. I could feel it's warmth, I could feel God's promises to us as humanity. In my own words, once a year we have a holy TEXT sent to us. It says "I lived, I died and I did it because I love you" You have my number, don't forget to call.

On this Good Friday I am sending you my faith, my hope and wishing you peace and love in your lives forever. This has been my message to you for 8 years. We can rejoice in a new beginning because that is what he bestows on us each and every Good Friday.

Each and every Easter Morning we start again. With the Faith that he is near, The peace he sends in knowing our future is in his good keeping, the hope that our loved ones can share in this amazing gift, and the love that can transpire between families no matter how much strife and differences we have, we are all one. It is all so easy when we come together to make it happen.

Easter Blessings,


Psalm 35:9
Then my soul shall rejoice in the LORD;
and delight in his salvation.

Thank You...
I am pleased to see on the Holmes family members you have been so thoughtful as to leave the inscription at the bottom of the picture...allowing an almost possible to read and/or see portions of letters. Many do not attempt to do so...I appreciate your contribution!

I would like your permission to use your photos of the Dr. William Tillinghast headstone on my site, with credit to you, of course.
Also, If I find any other photos of my ancestor's cemetery sites or headstones that you have taken, I would like to do the same.

Thanks for the high resolution pictures. They are so clear and beautiful, you can zoom right in with very little distortion. The 37 yr old could be Thomas Coddington 1655-1693.

Great looking pictures,
Thanks Pete

Holmes grave markers
Dear James:
You have definitely gone beyond the "call of duty", requiring several trips to the cemetery to identify the markers. Thank you so much for the generosity of both your time and energy.
