Joseph Harvey Babbitt
Hi Matt -
JH Babbitt's memorial #72090488, in Hopewell Cem., Greene Co. Are you, by any chance, a Babbitt cousin, or are you an angel, posting lots of cemeteries? In either case, I want to thank you.
JH was brother to my 2nd g-grandmother, and I am in contact with one of JH's descendants. I've put in a request for a photo, but wondered if you have further information. There is confusion about whether his first name was Joseph of James.
If you have no personal interest, I'd be happy to assume management of his memorial until his descendant think's she is ready to take it on.
Thanks again. - Sally

Thank you, Matt, for adding the gravestone photos for William Anderson and his wife Keziah.

I would like to ask for your permission to use those photos (and others you have taken of gravestones of my husband's ancestors) in our family tree on ancestry.com. Because the photographer has a copyright for each photo, I always ask before using a photo on another web site. I will, of course, put your name as the photographer and the web site of the memorials as the source.

Some people use Findagrave photos without asking. If you don't want that, please let me know. I can put them in Family Tree Maker and make them private so they won't show up on ancestry.com. If you want, I will inform those who post your photos on ancestry, that you want them removed.

Thank you for considering my request,
Jacki

RE: Arnett Cemetery - Grant Town, WV
Matt,

Thanks for taking the time to get back to me on the Arnett Cemetery. I'll continue to look for its exact location. And many thanks for the tip on internment.net as I was not aware of that site.

Thanks again for your help.

Best regards,
Bill

Arnett Cemetery - Grant Town, WV
Matt,

I see that you took a photograph of Arnett Cemetery outside of Grant Town, WV. I'm wondering if you have any recollection as to where exactly this overgrown cemetery is located. The description for it on the website is somewhat vague (i.e. Located between Grant Town and Hoodsville off State Hwy. 25 on property owned in 1995 by a coal company).

I have a distant relative buried here (Mathew Michael) and I was hoping to visit the cemetery when I'm in the area this summer.

Any help you may be able to provide is most appreciated!

Best regards,
Bill Truninger

The only question I have is the names. Ruth is a last name, it is used as his middle name. It was two persons-William Ruth Horner and Samuel Horner. You could leave out the Ruth. There birth/death are William 8-24-1881 to 7-30-1964 and Samuel 1831 to 4-26-1909.
Thanks you are much better at this. I am having difficulty in updating records. Some change in 24 hours. Others I have tried days ago and no update or reply. This is using the edit tab.

The book is Our Horner Ancestors William of Fayette County, Pa. son of Thomas of Baltimore County, Md. Family genealogy ca 1700-1973 and Allied Lines by Virginia Horner Hinds. printed 1974. page 204 William Ruth Horner and Samuel Horner (these are grandfather and grandson) had the stones of the family, who had been buried in the old Shepperd (Shepherd) Cemetery and the old Greene Academy moved to the family cemetery. These stones were toppled over and some were being used as step-stones. Being impossible to locate the location of the actual graves, just the stones were placed in the family cemetery.
page 206 Sarah Horner d/o Samuel and Mary (Cree) moved from Shepperd 7-25-1843 aged 5m 8d, Mary Horner 1st w/o Samuel (nee Cree) moved from Shepperd 1805 1-17-1852 aged 46y, James Horner s/o Samuel and Mary (Cree) moved from Shepperd 4-17-1842 2y 6m 22d. The Horner Cemetery, Fayette County, where they were moved is difficult to reach. My mother and older family visited it in early 1960 via tractor and wagon. They would not allow us children to go. The book I reference is in the Uniontown (PA)Library Genealogy Room. I took one there in 2003 or 2004. I believe they already had one.
Hope this gives you the information you wanted. Please ask if you need more information.

You have three listings-James Horner, Mary Horner and Sarah Horner. From information in a book Our Horner Ancestors by Virginia Horner Hinds, she has noted that the grave markers for these three persons were moved to the Horner Cemetery, Greene County near Carmichaels. Only the markers were moved. The reason being they had been toppled.

Thanks Matt. While I am not related to John, I am always interested in Civil War vets. I have added the Civil War information to his memorial. Please be on the lookout for a picture of john D Warfel in the 71's Ohio. He was my great grandfather and in for the duration of the Civil War. Ernie

Thanks for adding the photo and glad you had it in your group of pics. I found her name and 3 others in another book I had which was a reading done in 1980. I think these names pretty well complete the burials here. I'm so glad you went rabbit hunting! :)

RE: Freeland Cemetery, Wayne Twp, Greene County
Yes, I'll be very interested in the other graves you may find as I researched my relatives and it seems like that whole tri-border area used to be one big county so it's possible my and your relations may be in some of the same cemeteries.

RE: Freeland Cemetery, Wayne Twp, Greene County
I think I may be mistaken in the wrong county. I originally got this information from a Jefferson family tree. When I got your message, I went to the old link and it was moved to a Marshall County Genealogy website: http://www.wvgenweb.org/marshall/cemetery/cem-index1.txt
I'll be making some edits in the future. Sorry for any confusion I may have caused.
