RE: Lawson Cemetery Elk Valley
It is very, very possible. That was one of the most over-grown, ill-kept cemeteries I've been in! My sister and I found and photographed that cemetery. I drug her with me cause I was terrified I'd be snake bit and die before help could come. (No cell phone signal up there, either) If you click on the bottom picture on the main cemetery page, you'll get a bigger view...those few stones are the BEST ones we could find. The weeds were taller than me and that is no kidding.

And snakey. Ick

So "yes" is the answer to your question. It is very possible there are many headstones I couldn't find in all that mess.

RE: Lawson Cemetery Elk Valley
Oh gosh that's entirely possible.

My sister and I found that cemetery and took those pictures...I would never ever have gone there by myself. The weeds were taller than we are...the headstones we did manage to find were (ahem, pardon my french) hell to photograph. That was one of the snaky-est, overgrown, weedy, horrible cemeteries I've ever been to. The bottom picture on the main cemetery page? Click it to get a bigger view. Those graves there were the BEST ones we found.

This is no cleanly mowed, fenced in, pretty neighborhood cemetery. This one has gone back to wild...1968 is the newest burial I could find, and the day we were there I would have bet my last dollar that was the last year anybody had set foot there.

Now to be fair, that was in 2009. It's been what, 5 years since then? Maybe somebody has gone behind me and cleaned that poor plot of land up. That's always a possibility, & I sure hope that's the case. Were you thinking of visiting there? (Take a big stick to scare off the snakes!!) LOL

Orbie Susie "Stewart" Loudermilk
Dear Sir, I respectively request that you link my Aunt Orbie Find A Grave #84512668 to her mother Rebecca Corley Find A Grave #111797663 and her father Winfield Stewart Find A Grave #17246242.

Rebecca and Stewart were the parents of my maternal grandmother Georgia Stewart, who lived in Bakersfield, California for many years, and with my mother (her daughter)the final years of her life.

As a young child, I remember at least two visits from Aunt Orbie to my grandmother and have many pictures of her. My grandma and Aunt Orbie had one other full sister, Clara James "Stewart" Gieck, from Colorado Springs, CO. I spent a weekend with her in Colorado Springs in 1971.

I really hope you have knowledge of Orbie and the rest of her family, I have had little luck as yet. I am an active member of and my username is moore00754. If you are a member you should be able to find me.

Thank you for the pictures of the marker for Roy and Ruth Self. I did not expect such a fast response with the weather conditions in Tennessee.

Thanks so much for your help in getting the memorials where the graves are! :)

Just checking to see if you're still active. I've sent SACs concerning memorials entered in the wrong cemetery and am not sure if you're receiving them. Thanks.
