Thomas Barber
I just happened to be looking at a few messages I received from a couple of years ago and ran across yours with reference to Thomas Barber. I noticed that you commented on Margaret Perrine being the mother to Thomas Perrine. I'm assuming that Margaret and Thomas Barber had a son named Thomas, for Thomas Barber and Margaret were husband and wife. The next item was the comment on John Barber Esq. being the father of Thomas Barber. I have yet to find any type of documentation on this link. It would be a perfect fit, however. I am going to our church where John Barber is buried to see if there is any baptismal papers or any type of link for this connection. I do know there was a fire and a lot of the old records were lost. Have you made any of these connections yourself? If you did, please let me know so I can update my records. That time period seemed to have a lot of fires and many records were destroyed.

RE: grave of Thomas Barber and wife
They built an addition to the church and this was the only way they could go with that addition. I do have the actual headstone photos under the church if you would like them.

Sandy, I can sympathize with trying to learn a new system with no instructions! But creating a second set of memorials goes against the rules of the site. One of the sets will have to be deleted so that it is not duplicated. There is a button on the top right over the picture area that says delete. Push that and delete the extras. It will give you a confirmation page that you have to confirm that you really do want to delete the extra page. You can go ahead and request the pictures again on the new pages if you like. No one seems to be working that area anymore so I'm sure I'll be able to claim them before anyone else does. Have a great day! Carol

Sandy, if you are having trouble moving them to Rodef Shalom Cemetery, use the edit button next to burial (above the name of the cemetery Beth Kehillah). Then click next. (The cemetery button should already be filled in.)
That will bring you to a page that will allow you to change the cemetery. Move them to Rodef Shalom Cemetery in Cardiff, NJ.

If you are not able to move them, you could transfer them over to me, I'll get them moved, and then transfer back to you.

Have a great day! Carol

I found them! You have put them in the wrong cemetery. Rose & Harmen Van Orden are located in the Holocaust Survivors section of the Rodef Shalom Cemetery - not Beth Kehillah. It is easy to confuse them because they are next to each other. There are 2 entrances for Beth Kehillah and the 3rd entrance is to Rodef Shalom and the gates all have the same style. Easy to get confused. Could you please edit the cemetery, move them over to the correct cemetery and when I get back from vacation I can upload the pictures for you. Thanks!

He may have a marked grave. I'm not sure yet. I will be going back in 2 weeks and can search further. I did notice several markers had been broken and were face down. I can not move them, but maybe I can find someone to help me next trip. There seems to be some issues with vandalism in the cemeteries in that area. (drunken/drug parties that get out of hand in the cemetery.) Then there was a back section that was so overgrown I had trouble getting to those markers. The ivy was covering several markers and I did not have any scissors with me that day. Someone had planted ivy and grape vines in there and they have taken over the older back section. In that area there were numerous perfectly round holes in the ground and I was afraid of running into snakes hiding in that ivy.

I walked the entire cemetery and did not find them. Sorry. I did photograph about 1/3 of the cemetery so if by chance I got a pic and didn't realize it I'll post them. Otherwise, it will be at least a month before I can travel back to the area to try again. It is a 5 hour drive from my house.

I am sorry I don't have any information I was just wondering if they were buried next to each other.

Thank you very much for taking the picture. By any chance did you see if her parents were buried there beside her?

Thank you for your time and your work.

Yes, I live next to Chestnut Grove Cem in what was the old school house.
I bought a book from the Advocate Messenger that had all the graves in all the big and small cemeteries in Boyle county. But when I was doing pics for the Parksville Cem I found several stones that were not listed in the book. I added them to Find A Grave along with the pic.
A hundred dollars will get a 2 meter ham radio to start with. It helps to have other hams in the family as they often have good working radios that they have "out grown."

I do not know if we are having Field Day at the RR Donnelly Pavilion this year. Last year the Wilderness Road Amateur Radio Club were at the National Guard on Stanford Rd and the year before at the Park on the North side of Harrodsburg.
I think that the Scouts may be participating with us this year, though.
Are any of your boys interested in getting Ham Radio Licenses?
Find a Grave has over 300 Hiram Johnsons so it was a popular name but not too popular.
The cemetery next to my house has 100 burials according to county records but I cannot find markers for 29 of them. People just could not afford a stone in many cases. One marker is a sandstone with the writing spelled out with copper tacks.
The fact that your relative is a Veteran greatly increases the chance that he has a marker. Sadly, we are a long way from having all the graves listed on Find A Grave, so keep checking.
Two people who might have been able to help you died recently. Albert Johnson and his half brother Buddy Johnson.
Albert Johnson's son Jerome runs Connie's Restaurant in Parksville, but he has only limited information.

Thank you so much for the picture. I think pictures add so much to the family tree. Would it be all right if I add the picture to my Ancestry tree? Again thank you very much. Lynn Fuller

RE: Tabetha Johnson
I've read where people shouldn't use certain things on the headstones to read them better but my opionion is that these stones are in horrible condition already and it's better to use whatever you can to read the stone before there's absolutely nothing left to read. There's a Smith man that takes pictures of our Smith line for me and he found an old stone that was covered in black from age. He took a soft brush and water and scrubbed it & it looks real nice now & readable. He also said his arms were very sore from all the scrubbing:)
I've heard people use shaving cream or chalk. I would think chalk would be less messy.
I spent a week down there last year at my cousin's but she had car trouble & we never made it to any cemeteries.

RE: Tabetha Johnson
This is her headstone. I can make out her name and 9th of Jan but not the year. Were these headstones as hard to read when you were at the cemetery or is just the pictures?

RE: Johnson Grave
The dates look like ?th of January 1729 and
?th December 1802.
I went to Lincoln County, Kentucky Genealogy and looked at his name which was submitted by James P. Wagner and he has Noel Johnson Jan. 9, 1728/29 - Dec. 6, 1802. Then he has a listing for Tabitha, wife of Noel, Jan. 9, 1739/40 - Dec. 12, 1818. So I'm thinking that second Nouel is really Tabitha, except the birth year is different. Whoever transcribed for that tombstone may have thought the 4 in 1740 was a 1 and made it 1710.
The book Tombstone Inscriptions by Shirley Dunn only has Nouel 1 27 1710 - 12 26 1818 and doesn't list Tabitha.
I think the picture is on the right memorial.
I'll change the other Nouel to Tabitha.
Have I totally confused you? :)

You can put the picture on the one you think is correct and I can look at it and see if I can read it.

RE: James Benedict
Thanks a million for those headstone pictures. I do appreciate them. Do you know of any memorial I should add to Findagrave. Please let me know and I will see if I have them.
I descend from Lee A (Leanty) Lena Lou Ad Russell who was daughter of Elizabeth Jane Benedict and Martin Thomas Russell. Elizabeth was daughter of William Wesley Benedict. Does this help seeing if I am related? That would be nice.

Thank you for taking this group of pictures. Just what I needed to complete the "Perryville" group. I must have walked by that grave several times, but somehow never saw it.
