You're very welcome, David. The afternoon sun makes the difference on west-facing stones. The
ones that are shaded didn't fare so well, though

Jack Robert Johnson
Thank you for finding my dad, Jack Robert Johnson. A Lt. in the US Army he passed away in 1965 when I was barely 2yrs old. Now I'm almost 50, been wondering about him and looking for him for a long time. And it was nice knowing my grandparents are in the same cemetery with him.

Henry Hoyt FOUND !!!
I went on the monthly cemetery walk in Oakwood today, looking at the landscape design. Walking up the trail through the old parts of the cemetery I was scanning the names for the database in my head and found Henry in Section 22. I have attached the photo to the memorial and asked the creator to edit the info, but I will also email the pictures to you.

RE: Robert T. Reams and his son--
David: Since I didn't create the Memorial for Donald (Cluckymom did), Find A Grave won't allow me to edit the Family Relationships. Robert's memorial only allows mother, father and spouse - not children. So, I will ask Cluckymom to transfer the memorial to me and then I can add the relationship links. It looks like Donald's wife was IVAL LUCILE REAMS and she is buried in the plot with him, so I will be able to link them also.

RE: Henry Hoyt

Did you receive my email of a week ago? I walked Oakwood, both the Civil War section and the Hoyt section and did not find any mention of your Henry. The Civil War section seemed to be veterans, but not casualties. Not all Hoyts listed in the cemetery records are mentioned on the markers. I will go back and check that section again because I am missing a few that I want to photo. I will let you know if I find anything.

RE: Henry Hoyt
Thanks for the info; didn't know about the embalming. I couldn't imagine what they would do with all those bodies. I will let you know when/if I find out anything. It may be spring but the snow just disappeared from my yard yesterday.

RE: Henry Hoyt
I just had a thought in the early morning hours. There were over 8000 Union deaths at Petersburg; how is it possible that Henry was returned to Oakwood after that battle?

If the family created a cenotaph for him but there was no burial the cemetery would have no record of it (I checked). I plan to get to section 24 and photo all the Hoyt markers there. Either he could be mentioned on one of those, or he could be listed on an "honor roll" in the Civil War section, which is near. I will check both of those when I am sure the snow is melted and it is dry.

I am also trying to look in the newspaper for any mention of casulties but they didn't seem to list them (a la Gone with the wind) that I could find. Perhaps I didn't look late enough; I can't imagine how long it took to get lists together during a war.

I don't know any of these people but I will check at the geneology library to see if they can put me in contact with anyone. Let you know.

RE: Eugene Reams
Kalamazoo County has a pretty good listing of all burials in the county so if your person is buried somewhere in the county it should be on one of their their cemetery lists. Calhoun county is not as well compiled. Have you checked the adjoining county (Barry)? If you can find where their children located, you might find them buried in that area.
Are these Reams your people? I can transfer them to you if you wish.

RE: Henry Hoyt

I called Woodlawn today which has a big Civil War section/memorial. Henry Hoyt is not there. I also checked at Onondaga Valley because I was there this morning just in case. He is not there either. Asked about his mother and she is not at either cemetery. Those are the biggest in the city. I will keep looking.

RE: Henry Hoyt
No, Charity is not in Oakwood. I wrote down all the relatives on the website you sent to me about H.H.H. papers and looked for them. Only the sister appeared. I will keep looking and let you know.

RE: Henry Hoyt

I have the definitive answer for you about Henry Harrison Hoyt. I went back to Oakwood today and we searched high and low. He is not in the printout they keep on the desk, he is not in the comptuer database, and most of all he is not in the journal for the Civil War section, nor is there a note in the files for the many people buried in that section. I checked through that file myself. So, unless someone else has information we can't find, I can tell you he is not buried at Oakwood. There are dozens and dozens of Hoyts in Oakwood, but the only definite relative I could find is Christina Deborah who married Ezra Nathaniel Wheeler. I believe she is his sister.

I know this is not the answer you were hoping for but I will call Woodlawn, which has a large section for Civil War dead, and see if he was there. That is on the north side, but still in the city.

Henry Hoyt
I just noticed that the Henry Hoyt you are interested in is Henry H. Hoyt, a Civil War soldier. Is that correct? I don't know where that information came from because the only Henry Hoyt is Henry O. who died in 1946. Which is it?

RE: Henry Hoyt
I went by Oakwood today and found information about Henry for you. He is in the Hoyt plot with many many relatives. I will be mailing the info she gave me from the internment book.

I am actually writing now from Uniontown where my family lives. My sister works for UPMC so I manage to hit Pgh. a few times.

I will check on Henry and any other relatives for you.

I would be happy to find you any information I can in the cemetery office, but you have to understand that we have had six feet of snow in the last few weeks and locating any headstone will be impossible right now. I wouldn't even try to navigate the 'roads' through there with my car.

I am jealous of your job; I love that place!
