We tried at Burwood
We walked the cemetery looking for the ones you requested but we couldn't find them. The gentleman who runs the cemetery wasn't there to help us like he normally does. I am very sorry.

I would like to help you with this but the rose hill cemetery here in okc is not very helpful nor do they have good maintance or grave markers to tell you where ur at. I went to ask them if he's buried here and they said it would cost me 5$ for that info. that their services is for family only and they had to call in to get the info. when i asked for maps of the cemetery so i can find where things are they said tell the family to request the map for the info on which they are inquiring. There phone number is 405-843-5771 or fax number 405-843-5754. Please let me know if I can help in anyway. I dont have my volunteering status turned on cause there are some doing rose hill that have said i dont take professional photos and they dont want to see it on their memorials. so I do try and help but i email the headstones by request.

Lloyd Pollock photo request
I would be happy to fill your photo request, however, can you contact Grove Hill cemetery and get the burial locations for your requests: 214-381-7118
There are over 311 photo requests and the volunteers can not ask for that many locations.

Your request will get filled with the location information. The cemetery does not like to cooperate with findagrave volunteers.
thanks!

Not sure which one I took for you but you are very welcome. I plan to post pictures of all the monuments in our cemetery. Let me know if there are any other pictures you want in either the Simons or Lamb cemeteries in Tobinsport, IN.

RE: Margaret Ballentine-Second wife of Gen. Palmer
I added another photo of her to this site. Here's a bio that I compiled from various sources:
Margaret J. Ballentine, daughter of Andrew M. and Mary Tuttle (Goff) Ballentine, was born March 25, 1830. Margaret was reared in Pulaski, Giles County, Tennessee. "Her father was for long years closely identified with the business interests and property of Pulaski, being one of its honored and influential citizens" (1).
"In early womanhood [Miss Ballentine was] rich in all the charms and graces of a cultured life, endowed with rare beauty of face and figure, brilliant in intellect and charming in the social world (2). She was a graduate of Nashville Female Academy, under C. D. Elliott, and is well known in the social circles of Nashville and throughout Middle Tennessee, as a well-read, highly accomplished and intellectual woman" (3).
Miss Ballentine gave her hand in marriage to Mr. William Mason of Memphis on October 23, 1851. They resided in Holly Springs, Mississippi. One child was blessed to this union: Willie T. Mason, born on May 15, 1855 in Giles County, Tennessee. Her happiness was short lived, however, as William Tayor Mason died early in their marriage.
Margaret J. Ballentine married second, Gen. Jospeh B. Palmer, on June 16, 1869 in Giles County, Tennessee. In 1869, Gen. Palmer built a home for the family at 434 E. Main Street in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, that still stands today. It is a beautiful 2-story brick, built in the Intalinate style, irregular shaped, with a hiped roof, projecting wood and iron bays and porches, recessed round entrance archway.
No children were born to this couple. Interestingly, however, the son of Gen. Palmer by his first marriage and Margaret Ballentine Mason Palmer's daughter, were united in marriage. My husband's great Aunt Elisabeth Howse Ridley indicated that they married to keep all the money in the same family. I am sure, however, that there was love involved in their matrimony.
Margaret J. Ballentine Mason Palmer died on August 15, 1886. Gen. Palmer followed her in death a few years later on November 4, 1890. Both are buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in Murfreesboro, Rutherford County, Tennessee.

Markers for Ida, George, Connie & Margie
James I just returned from the cemetery with the pictures of your relatives noted above. The most difficult one for me was one you did not request but I thought you would want since I was there....that was for Connie Frances Goff. The sun was in the worst position but I did what I could. I can always return for another picture if you'd like as I only live 1 mile from the cemetery. I will say this though. Your relatives rest under a most beautiful oak tree (and the shade did not help my pictures from a different angle!) But it was lovely with more squirrels running around than I've ever seen! As yours are my first "official" pictures, I just need to figure out how to upload them to the site. After that, I'm not sure how you get control of the memorial as the wonderful woman for whom I'm paying this forward for did it all for me when she answered my personal request for a photo in NY. Enjoy.

RE: Ballentine
Your welcome. I just transferred John Goff Ballentine, Jr. to you as well. I was researching this family in its connection to his sister, Margaret, who was the second wife of Brig. Gen. Joseph B. Palmer. Gen. Palmer's first wife, Ophelia Burrus Palmer was my husband's 2nd great grand aunt. I have photographs of some of these folks on my ancestry.com tree.

MPB child
I got the photo of the child, the stone is very, VERY faint, and had moss all over it, I cleaned it as good as I could and to the naked eye, you can make out the name, faintly, but the dates are easy to see, unfortunately, the photo doesn't show what you can see in person, but it is up and posted.

James, the cemetery didn't do much to get the shrub off of the Lovell gravestone. So I borrowed some tools and worked on it for an hour or so. I couldn't do much as the tools weren't that good, but at least you can see the stone now. I went ahead and took a photo which I will post. It will be several weeks before I can get back to the cemetery (about 120 miles) and I'll take some better tools with me when I go, and hopefully be able to get a better photo. More of the shrub needs to be removed plus the stone needs a good scrubbing. So just consider the photo I'm posting now as a temporary thing.

Jesse Carl Lovell
Just want to tell you that Jesse's mother was Cliva Arvin, rather than Cliva Shipley. The Shipley name obviously was just from someone she married. Cliva is listed in the 1900 Federal Census for Grayson County, Texas. Her father was Joe C. Arvin and her mother was Permelia Arvin (maiden name unknown). Cliva had siblings: Nonnie, Mamie, Clide, Christopher, Mary E., Cecil, and Tam.

Thanks for the links and information. Yes, you are Jesse's family. I'll let you know about the gravesite when I get the shrub removed.
