RE: Parley Brown
Hi Denise,

I didn't have much time to look, but will try again when I get the chance. The median is a few hundred feet wide at the point where the GPS coordinates for the "cemetery" are given. I didn't have my handheld GPS with me and had to guess at the exact spot. Some of the area is heavily overgrown - it's possible a marker of some kind is hidden in there.

I imagine there was some reason for that location being given as a cemetery, but I don't see any way of finding out who created the listing to ask about it. Perhaps you know of a way.

By the way, it's most likely a coincidence that my last name is also Brown. (Dr. Lewis H. Brown, the first Brown in my family (that I know of)in this county, arrived many, many years after the war.)

I'm rather familiar with the general history and especially the cemeteries of this area. Feel free to ask me about anything that may be of help to you.

RE: Minnie A Nichols

I transferred Minnie to you. You are related, even if distantly, and I'm not related at all. She should be with family! Let me know if you find any others. You can always pass them on to closer family if someone speaks up down the line.

Is Minnie Nichols in the Dayton City Cemetery family of yours? I noticed you posted a photo of her. I'd be happy to transfer her memorial.

RE: Miller Cemetery / Lindsay
You're welcome! And yes, it is in bad shape. There is no access road to it, so you have to wait until the crops come off the field to walk the 200 yards back there. One good thing though... because of your photo request, I was able to rescue a civil war veterans headstone that I found by tripping over it! Only a small area of the top corner was exposed. Another year or two and it would have been lost forever! Welcome back, James L. McCafferty, Co. D, 82nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry.
On behalf of James, Thanks for your request!

Miller Cemetery
Hello Denise,

This is an older run down cemetery in the middle of a farmer's field. It is about 200 yards from the road. It seems as though all the Lindsay headstones are in that one location of the cemetery. All but one of the Lindsay stones are toppled over. The picture(s) that I have on the web site pretty much tell the story. When find a grave puts up my Miller Cemetery photo up, read the caption I put for it...Regards-Harley

RE: Malissa Jane Chandled Lindsay
You're welcome, I was glad to help out. I've updated the photo captions and also posted photos to memorials for the others buried in the same Section/Lot. Sorry to find there wasn't a tombstone for her, so I used the pink flower to mark her spot. Glad I rememberd to put that in my "graving" kit. :-)
Best Regards ~ Marilyn

Your welcome. Sorry I wasn't fast enough to claim your request, but I'm sure Mr. Newman will be out at the cemetery early next week to take your photo. He is very efficient.

Westiminister Cemetery
I wanted to let you know that it is very hard for volunteers to get grave information from this cemetery due to it's size and it is a very very busy active cemetery. If you are able to call them at 714-893-2421 and request grave location, and then post the information on your request, you will help the volunteers that go to this cemetery immensely. We are able to find the graves without bother the office if you have a location. Otherwise, they only let use request one name at a time.

RE: Dayton City Cemetery
I was glad to see that you added more names to the list. Since the weather is so perfect now, I'd like to get as many photos as I can on each trip. The cemetery is beautiful, quiet and serene. It's much like meditating to be there, thinking of the people at rest now and how important it is that they be remembered. And heaven knows I need the exercise!

P.S. I just saw your personal profile. I, too, was born in Long Beach, CA. And I also just moved to Washington State (6 yrs. ago). What a coincidence!

RE: Charles Shockley
You're certainly welcome, Denise. I've been working on my family genealogy for several years, and appreciate the help I've received from others from afar. It feels wonderful to be able to "pass it on." As an aside, I had never been to the Dayton City Cemetery before; since Dayton is so small, I wasn't prepared for how large its cemetery is. After the frustration of finding so few graves today that were requested, I headed for City Hall and got information to draw up some maps for my next trip out there. I hope to go again tomorrow or the next day, and should be able to fulfill most, if not all, the requests then.

Please call them at 214-381-7118 and get a location of the grave site for Margaret Crosthwait and I will gladly go and photograph her tombstone. They are short handed and will not look up the information for anyone other than a relative. I did this for someone else looking and I got the photo that week. Email me with the plot and I will go look and get a photo. Thanks

RE: Transfer request for McDougall family in Carmen Cemetery
I'll be glad to transfer them. I have taken pictures of all the stones in Carmen and I'll be glad to transfer anything I have to you that is not my family. I am not where I have the pictures, so I will have to send them later if they are not on the site.

RE: Rogerene Cemetery
I have family there as well. Rachel Larabee Rogers, my 4th great grand mother is there. Was a really cool place to visit. I highly recomend going if you ever can. The nicest people live in the house the cemetery is behind. I knocked on thier door and said "Hello, I was wondering if there was a cemetery in your backyard?" They politely showed me where it was. I think I wasn't the first person to ask them......-Jennifer

Rogerene Cemetery
I posted a bunch of Pictures I took at the Rogerene Cemetery a year ago. (5 or 6 pics) The Rogerene Cemetery has no inscribed stones. The Rogerenes believed that incribed stones were "pagan" and only put the person's initials but most of the time only put a number on the stone. The person in charge of the cemetery had a master list of who pas buried under which number. Unfortunately that list has been lost over time. There is a large monument stone that says "Old Rogerene Cemetery" but that is all, the rest are field stones. Posted pictures so you can see for yourself. -Jennifer
