RE: Shoop's Cemetery
There are two Shoop's Cemeteries in Harrisburg, PA. One is in Lower Paxton Twp. and one is in West Hanover Twp. The one that was completely raised is in West Hanover Twp. The one in Lower Paxton Twp had the church, front yard, and part of the side yard removed and only a few graves were moved. The reason for this was to put a new interchange for Rt. 83 South and North with Rt. 22 East. Your James and Mary Black are buried here. There markers are still intact. They are buried in the other side of the cemetery. I hope this answers your questions, and puts your mind at ease.

Carol, I am not related to this couple. I can't tell you where I got the information regarding their deaths because I have submitted so many memorials and can't keep up with them all. It may have been a newspaper or county history. Best regards.

Hi Carol, I'm deleting the memorial I created for your mother. The other memorial which you spoke of was created earlier than mine. You may want to contact him requesting a transfer, I'm sure he will oblige you.

No I'm not a direct line descendant of the Eckard's. They just married into a lot of my Catawba families.

I can't remember if the children are buried beside the parents or not, but there should be tombstones for those 3 children. I noticed when I added them they all died within a short time of each other. How are you related? I am not related to them only through the Eckard's, so if you want those memorials just let me know and I'll transfer them to you. You can request a photo and somebody there will likely take them for you. I don't know about the 3 deaths though.

No, I'm not related. The obit ran in our city paper and I put in the memorial so one day when his family discovers Find A Grave he can be transferred over. Sorry I can't help.

RE: Kingston Springs
I stop at the local library ask if they knew the condition the cemetery was in and they did not. I hike up to the cemetery and found it in good shape. They are still burying people there, the last was back in 2006, I believe.

I know of a book on the cemeteries in the county, done back in the 1980s by the Cheatham Co Historical & Geneaology Soc. I had a friend who help gather the information.

Thanks for the information.

RE: Mary E Knall grave photo
I have family buried there so I knew about the cemetery all my life. It had been nearly 20 years since I have last been there. I listed the cemetery onto "Find A Grave". Since then there has been some other people has been adding to it. I took some pictures and a Steven Harrison has been adding pictures as well.

As of last summer and fall it was in much better condition. I went there and cut some of the bushes away from great-great grandmother and a great uncle's graves. I am planning to go back there again this summer to take more pictures. Please note the picture of the cemetery I took last summer. The drive way and road is in pretty good condination.

Good hunting.

It was at one time just the Methodist Episcopal Church. Then they added a cemetery and called it the Methodist Episcopal Church Cemetery.

I'm not sure of the order, but at some point they moved the church to a new location and also started burying their members at a new location now called Mooresville Cemetery. I don't know if they were affiliated or not. You will see some where the husband was buried at one place and the wife at another.

Eventually people started calling the cemetery the Old Methodist Episcopal Church Cemetery.

When I joined Find A Grave someone else had already entered it as Old Methodist Episcopal Cemetery and that is okay with me. The sign just reads: Old Cemetery. That should probably be an aka. I know some people just call it the Old Mooresville Cemetery. I tried to make some calls about it early on and those people had me seriously confused at first.

I photographed and uploaded photos for all the stones which could be read. I probably went at least 10 times. I know I got tired of all the ants!

If you want anything added to any memorial, please use the Edit tab and send me a correction. There was another member who had added about half of the memorials before I started. I never could get her to add anything. The admins added information for the more prominent folks from the area.
