Correct cemetery name
Oreslip Cemetery
Barbour County
West Virginia, USA

Above is how this cemetery name is entered on I wonder if this is a mistake and should be instead "Creslip Cemetery" ?? Since you have been there taking headstone photos I thought you a good person to ask. I have had some photo requests there that have been outstanding for some time. Thanks!

James Simpson photo request
The photo request was made prior to our accepting transfer of this memorial. The notation of him not being on the cemetery list of burials was an unintended leftover from the original contributor. We know from family records that he is buried in this cemetery, but have no specifics. It's our hope that someone else might assist in locating his plot. Thanks for your efforts.

Thanks, Art. Carrie and Katherine sure looked alike, didn't they? Is it okay for me to use the photos on Ancestry, attributed to you? Regards, Diane

Hi Art

The date on the memorial is noted as burial date. The article stated he died a week ago but didn't state exactly which date in the previous week. Was it EXACTLY 7 days previous or just sometime that previous week? That's why I didn't change the date as listed.

Hi Art.. Its some kind of Wierd Find A Grave Thing. ALL People with parents and siblings listed are listed as "siblings of themselves" with their name "greyed out". Looks kinda wierd I agree but thats how Find A Grave did it.

RE: Lydia Blackman
Oh, babies and children. Wow, is this why in general we often have such a hard time finding the final resting places of the very young? She is not a relative of mine and given that age, I'm not at all sure now where she fits in with the research I'm helping someone else do, as we were thinking she's someone who was born around 1860. Which she clearly was not. Thank you for this additional information... do you think your findings would be appropriate to share on Lydia's memorial page?

re: Lydia Blackman
Thank you for trying, Art. You discovered some important info that explains why there's no headstone and no birth date. Appreciate your attempt to photo her gravesite. Lee

RE: MW Yowell
Hi Art,
I was going on the idea of "keep the first memorial created," but if you would like to keep this memorial active, let me know and I'll contact the owner of the other memorial instead.

Concerning the dates: as it turns out, there are obituaries published in 1893 that verify that Matthew died in that year -- so I was surprised to see that his tombstone appeared to say otherwise.

But looking closely, you can see that the final digit has an indent on its right side, which makes it more likely to be a "3" than a "9".

The top loop still makes it look very "9"-ish, but there's an indication that this is a glitch in the photo: the part that closes the loop and seems to make it a 9 instead of a 3 extends out farther than the digit itself, so it's very likely an artifact of some kind.

RE: Eunice Blackler
I see the two entries that you are referring to. I don't know anything about who created them or why. I don't know if there are two entries for one person, or two different people with similar names.

All I know is that I am looking for a Eunice (Hooper) Blackler at this time person, and when I looked for her, I found the memorial for her already created there, though I am surprised as I expected to find my person in New Bedford, MA.

I'm going to try to call the cemetery office, if I can find it, to see if I can get more info about her.

Thanks again for looking into this for me!

Eunice Blackler
Hi Art,

I assume that she is still buried in the cemetery, but simply has no stone. That's still possible, isn't it?
