Mount Royal Cemetery Photo Request
Mount Royal Cemetery has 165 acres. The burial plot location must be supplied so a volunteer can go take the photo.

You can get this free information by filling the form here: www.mountroyalcem.com/index.php/en/our-services/genealogy-menu.html and in the "Desired Service" field, select "Burial Location (free)" and enter the information.

If the Genealogy page was not helpful then email your request to genealogy@mountroyalcem.com

The cemetery will email you the location (3-10 working days).

Have the memorial updated with the plot number.

Just took a look at your headstone photo request. I have never heard of this cemetery before today and, unfortunately, I do not believe we could possibly locate Mr. Abell. If you wish to take a look at this cemetery's history, here is a link from Find a Grave (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&GScid=2524432&GRid=122306482&CRid=2524432&) that gives a rather shocking history of this particular cemetery. In my opinion, it is shameful and disgraceful what happened to this cemetery and if you read the second from final paragraph you will see that there are no headstones here, although many of the occupants are still here, covered by a development at the Country Club and a multi-story retirement community next to an Applebees. After reading the well-documented history, you may possibly consider withdrawing your request. I did check the nearby Mountain View Cemetery roster with all 3 spellings (Able Abel, and Abell) and find nothing matching. Sorry I could not fulfill your request for a photo myself. Eileen

RE: Alonzo Atkins
John, there is no marker. I looked very hard for a marker for him, he may have one--it isn't visible. Therefore I took a photo of the grass showing where I belohs marker to be.

Call Greenwood Cemetery if you wish and explain to them you would like to know if Alonzo Atkins has a marker. They might be able too tell you. Sue

Hi, John,

You are welcome to use the photos I've taken of any colored troops graves in Spokane cemeteries on your USCT page on FB. I appreciate you asking. There was a unit of Buffalo soldiers who served at Ft. George Wright after the Civil War. My friend, Craig Manson, has written about it on his blog at http://geneablogie.blogspot.com/2007/06/walter-scott-of-spokane-washington.html.

Best,

Miriam Robbins (formerly Midkiff)

Hosea Funk
You will get a message from Find A Grave that Hosea H. Funk request was fulfilled. Sorry I put Hosea B Funk his father as the picture. I will get this changed as soon as I get out to the cemetery and take a picture of Hosea H. Funk. Didn't realize it until I put it in. Will definitely get this change over to the correct one. Sorry again.

RE: SW Hall
Yeah...The caption explains it. As for other Hall's, this is a Single Graves area, so there are not other family with him. [If you mean for the whole cemetery, this is a very large municipal cemetery and it looks like there are more than 100 Hall memorials on Find-a-Grave and probably more burials that don't have memorials...In this cemetery, most recorded burials up through 1892 have had memorials created but for more recent burials most have not.]

Cheers,
Joel

You are very welcome. Next to Raymond Desrosiers, I found a flat stone with the name David P. Desrosiers 1951-2003. If you're interested I'll be happy to send you this photo.

You're welcome. On the backside of Thaddeus Jez, I found another Military plaque for John Thomas Jez, Jr. Born July 11, 1910, died August 10, 1942. If you're interested I'll send you a photo of the stone.

Oh, duh! Sorry 'bout that.

All I can think of is the Library of Congress. (You can also type in individual names or unit names.) Here is a link-
http://www.loc.gov/search/?q=United+States+Colored+troops&fa=original-format%3Aphoto%2C+print%2C+drawing&dates=1800-1899&sp=2

The LOC results for 'civil war colored'-
http://www.loc.gov/search/?q=civil+war+colored&fa=original-format%3Aphoto%2C+print%2C+drawing&dates=1860-1869

The best photo I know of of William Carney is at the National Gallery of Art. Here is the link-

That's all I have now, John.

All the best,

Please clarify?

RE: Memorial# 89585008
lol, I understand, I was just wanting to make sure because there are many people who don't realize that West Virginia is it's own state now. LOL
I kinda figured, being a Civil War buff, that you knew.

RE: Memorial# 16463635
I have a couple new pix, but still will never be very good as he is on the north side of the marker, and there is nasty discoloration within the stone itself. I brushed it really hard, but the darkness remains...sorry.
