RE: Thomas Benton Rogers Obit
After corresponding with you on the facebook page a while back, and visiting the cemetery to photograph it in C-Hill this summer, it caught my eye when I read it this time. The last two times through the book (both within the last 18 months!) I never noticed it either! BUT - I'm still trying to figure out the relationship with the Rogers' in the cemetery in Campbell Hill..... Which one did Thomas belong to? Or was his dad a brother of the one that stayed?

Rogers Family Cemetery
Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that I finally made it out to the family cemetery. Sadly, it's pretty weedy, although they are all dead and dried up, as though the farmers keep it sprayed to stop it from growing up too bad. I did find all the stones that had been surveyed and listed on F.A.G. previously, got them brushed off and photographed for you. Took my Mom (76 yrs old) and gave a her a look at what I do tromping around in the old cemeteries - and I'm glad to say she had quite a nice time! Hoping you had a great Memorial Day!

Hi Barbara,

Her memorial is fixed now. I suspect that what happened with her husband is that you submitted a link to him from her memorial and a link to her from his memorial. The system wouldn't let you do that normally but apparently the new edit system allows some odd anomalies like that to happen. Anyway, I cleared the double link and linked her to her parents.

Barbara: The Greenhill cemetery Inscriptions book to which I refer was Published by the Moultrie County Historical & Genealogical Society at Sullivan, IL.
All the grave-stones at Greenhill were read & recorded by members of the Society.

RE: virtual flower for...Reddick
Hello -
I read your virtual flower entry for this person - and totally agree with your statement ... "...So many people just don't understand and see us as ungrateful and cruel...we are all survivors..."
The broo ha ha has not ended yet -
http://www.cnn.com/2013/09/24/living/death-anger-reddick-obit/index.html?hpt=hp_c3
and - unfortunately - another 'contributor' has duplicated the page, with the incorrect death date for this person:
Created by: spiritclowns
Record added: Sep 14, 2013
Find A Grave Memorial# 117058371
I shall not notify Find A Grave admins of this, as they deleted the first page created already - which that contributor recreated (thankfully), a few days later! which is where your flower has remained (mine too).
"They", the professionals who have not endured and survived the horrors of abuse, continue to tout the healing effects of 'forgiveness' - something that cannot come without 1) admission of guilt from the perp, and 2) repentance for wrongdoing (not possible for the dead).
Thank you for speaking your truth - spirit sister of survival ....

Please be safe there. It's not safe in the cemeteries during Mardi Gras time. If you see a cemetery attendant they will tell you this as well. All the police are working around the city and the local criminals know this. There have been many cemetery robberies during Mardi Gras. I know. I'm from there.
If you go on a cemetery tour, I think in Cemetery No. 1 is Marie Laveau's tomb. She was the cities Voodoo Queen. You will know her grave by the "XXX" marks on the headstones.
There is also a Voodoo shop near Jackson Square. It's more unique and unusual to see than to buy from. Pretty weird.
If you are able to watch the parades from some back streets, this is better than Canal Street. Canal will be 10 people deep. Further up the roads that span off Canal the people are not nearly as dense. If you dress whacky, they will throw you more. Don't carry any purse. Especially while a parade is going on. And know that Bourbon Street is the wildest part of town. The strangest people will head down there. But the crowd is so thick you will be smashed on all sides by someone. They can easily pick your pocket or steal a purse or bag.
Just some tips. I've been to Mardi Gras many times with someone that has not been there and they are either fascinated by it all, or shocked. Anyhow stay safe and be careful. ~ Kim

RE: St. Louis Cem #1, NOLA
Thank you. I appreciate your time and effort. I believe one of the cemeteries has a register of who is buried in the cemetery at the main office, but I think that is near Cemetery No. 3. I know they know all the graves for the 3 cemeteries. Hope this helps you with your search as well. Thank you, Kim

RE: Dwight Souile
I did offer but when you didn't get back to me about it I deleted it. I clean out the pictures after I post them. It's no problem to take a photo if Frederick's for you. I drive past that cemetery at least twice a week. Ellen

Dwight Souile
I was checking on this family, with censuses from 1850 thru 1880 and one family research on Ancestry and it looks like Rhoda Merril Souile was Dwight and his first wife was Rhoda Beeman ,second wife was Rachel Dubois .The Jepson Ancestors familyl site had this information onlt it stated that Rhoda Beeman lived from 1800-1880, which ment they were divorced .Several census up to the 1870 state that Dwight was married to Rachel. Let me know if you want to post Frederick's grave sight and picture and I will be glad to post it. Ellen Headington

Rhoda Souile
I posted a photo grave marker. The name on the marker says Rachel Souile wife of Dwight. Could she have two names? I also have shots of the same stone with Dwight died April 2, 1875 and Frederick on another side died 1/?7/1872? On the side tha has Rachel's name it says Mother Father Son. Is this the family you are looking for? Let me know if you need the other two photos of Dwight and Frederick Ellen Headington

RE: Derr family
You're very welcome. I'd rather see these folks with their families, so I thought I'd transfer them. I'm not related, just local to the cemetery. I'm glad you were able to find them!

Thanks for the kind words. I did look around for help but there was none to be seen...lol

PHOTO REQUESTS
Glad you like the photos. The dates for Mrs. Thomas you posted on Find a Grave do not match her headstone for some reason. It's too bad about the Brashear headstone, but the cemetery has suffered a lot of vandalism lately. Don
