Dear Janet,
Is there a photo of Augustus Payton's gravestone?
The NSDAR will not accept Find a Grave's information without a photo OR does Old Salem Church Cemetery have their own listing of graves?
I would appreciate hearing from you.
Thank you so much,

RE: Edward & Emma Blunk Crump
Hi Janet,
Looks like we are cousins. Andrew Jackson Blunk is my 3x great grandfather. I'm not quite sure how we are related, but something like third cousins I suppose. While looking into this, I see that there is a memorial for Emma in the same cemetery, but in the wrong county. Bethany United is right in downtown New Middletown. Not sure what to do about it though. Happy to transfer them to you if you like. Just let me know.

RE: Mary Ritchey Lawler Tombstone
I live north of Knob Noster but I would be glad to show you where the grave is located. Curently, the winter weather is the problem. If the cold is not a problem (we could dress for it)just let me know when you can come and we will go to the Combs Cemetery. There has been no maintence for several years of the cemetery. It is in rough condition. Let me know when you can come and I will be ready to go.

I believe I could locate her grave easily but I do not recall what graves are nearby.

Combs Cemetery is in bad condition. Sometime ago someone did some work cleaning it up but it has become overgrown badly again with brambles and brush.

RE: John Followell
There are five Followell stones there; four of them have been placed on the wooden bench and one is still standing in the middle of the cemetery.

The two stones with initals J.F. & S.F. have no other inscriptions.

The darker, broken stone on the bench reads:In Memory of Sinthy who died on Feburary 27,1845 Aged: 20 years, 9 months and 10 days.
"Yes my native land I love thee
All thy scenes I love them well.
Friends connect, ---s happy country
Can I bid you all farewell"

The stone leaning on the end of the bench states:
F.B. son of S&E Followell born Oct. 22, 1846 died June 9, 1865 Aged: this line is unreadable.

The stone still standing in the middle of the cem. is for R.A. Followell, wife of T.J. Followell born Oct 1, 1842, died May 15, 1865

There are other stones broken off just above the ground but none contain any inscriptions.

Hi Janet,
I work closely with Cindy who has claimed your photo request for Josephine Harrison, when her photo is added you will see the headstone is in a group of three which are Frank E Harrison 3-29-1903--12-3-1918 and Legrand A Harrison 1-10-1859- 6-10-1920 a Woodman of the World I have already added the photos for Frank and Legrand Cindy will be adding Josephine's shortly.
If you know of a connection between Josephine-Frank or Legrand let me know and I can add it.

Gideon & Hezekiah Wright
Hi Janet,

I saw your photo requests for these that you had added memorials in the Wright Cemetery for, and wanted to let you know that they are not buried there as far as anyone knows. I have photographed all the stones and didn't find either of them. This cemetery was started by Joshua Wright and is mainly his descendents.

Gideon was one of four men who each donated an adjoining acre to found the town of Huntsville. He and several other Wrights, including Hezekiah, are thought to be buried on land he lived on. No stones have ever been found and recorded, and the story is that, as Huntsville grew, the cemetery was destroyed and a house built on the site. This is all word-of-mouth and nothing proven, but just wanted to let you know the little I know about it all!

I had thought about adding a "Gideon Wright Cemetery" to Findagrave with those thought to be buried there, but hesitated to since no records have been found and it would be strictly guesswork. Just wanted you to know that they are definitely not in the Wright (Joshua) Cemetery. There is another Wright Cemetery several miles north of Huntsville, but the only engraved stones are for Johnson Wright and a daughter. Several graves marked with just rocks are thought to be slaves.

I have to go back to the cemetery so I will have to look again. The problem is that these stones are so old some are missing, broke, or worn. I know there was a John McFarlin with Andrew, any relation? I will look again though hopefully I will get a chance before Thursday, if not I will when I return home.

Eliphalet Metcalf d-1813
Searched Masonville Pioneer Cemetery but couldn't find Eliphalet,died 1813. I don't know where Grid C9 is. It would be helpful if I did, so I posted on ancestry to see if anyone knows where I can get a map.

What I did find was a Eliphalet Metcalf died 1863 age 51 with wife Susanna.

Is that anything you want?

I believe there are two more Metcalf near this one, but definitely not the one you're looking for. Katie

RE: Mary Blunk tombstone
Janet. No problem. We were going to be there and thought we would try to help a fellow genealogist out. I have posted a picture of the new sign and 2 overall pictures taken from the gate. I don't know that I will be back anytime soon. there definately is more Blunk stones, but I couldn't tell you whos nor how many.
The owner of the property was there and led me through his sheep pen to the cemetery. He stood there the whole time I was looking around. I would have taken more information including pictures of all of the stones, if he hadn't been there in the rain waiting. He did pay for all of the new paver style stones to be made. I also posted a picture looking back at the gate from inside (you can see and count the stones in row 1 but not read the names).

Robrt J. Gasaway
I heard that you were looking for Robert J. Gasaway.

The Story County Genealogical Society walked every cemetery in Story County. The only Gasaway headstones that they found are Elizabeth H., Harry W., and William J.. All three of them were in Gilbert cemetery. Either Robert's grave is unmarked or he is not on Story County. My guess would be that it is unmarked.

I suggest trying to find out who maintains the records for the cemetery. If they can confirm that he is buried there, then you would know that it is an unmarked grave. My best suggestion for finding out who maintains the records would be to dontact the Gilbert City Hall 515-233-2670).
