RE: Barber Cemeteries in Chatham County
Thanks for your response. The census lists two barber cemeteries-Wesley and William. The William location was severely damaged at some point, all the stones pushed into a pile during logging operations. The Wesley cemetery is well preserved and may not be completely canvassed. I'll be in Chatham county this weekend to photo some known cemeteries, and if time allows I'll go take a look at the Wesley Barber for you although my instincts tell me they aren't there or the markers may be missing. If you could come up with locations of other Barber cemeteries in the area I'd be happy to take a look at them as well. There are plenty of cemeteries not included in the census, so I guess there's hope there.

William Palmer
Robert B. Durvin
I'm preparing an article about the train wreck of April 6, 1889, which occurred just a short walk from my home in West Point, VA. I understand that Robert Durvin was the fireman killed in that wreck. I think that there's mention of the wreck in his epitaph, but I can't make all of it out. Would you be willing to share with me both the wording of the epitaph and any information you can offer about Robert Durvin? Thank you!

RE: Duplicate memorial
There is an email address in the help section to contact administration for this. Sometimes it takes them a while to get to it, but they eventually will. I agree with what you said. Hopefully one day they find a way to streamline this.

re: Bernice Dominici
I almost forgot to add...

Bernice's brother Ralph (my grandfather) is also buried at Green Hill Cemetery.

Bernice Dominici
Hey Sheldon,

I'm assuming that with you leaving a memorial on Bernice Dominici's page, that you are related to her. As such, you and I are definitely related. Bernice is the sister of my grandfather, Ralph Roland Linderman.

From my research, Bernice had 2 children that, unfortunately, didn't make it too far. Mary Ann (b. 30 Dec 1943, d. 24 Aug 1944) and Joseph Frederick (b. 25 Mar 1950, d. 12 Apr 1950). I found that she had at least two other children, James and Rose Marie. Although I do not have much information on these two.

I know that Bernice and Ralph's mother, Christina Bridget Dymack, passed relatively young (shortly after her 40th birthday).

My aunt even remembers Bernice visiting her when she was young.

I have a little bit more information on Bernice's side of the family, if you are interested.

RE: Hollywood Cemetery ~ Ben Catogni
Well, about the first thing I did when I found Ben Dominici's gravestone (where I really wanted to find Ben Catogni) was to look around for any depressions that often indicate a fallen (covered) marker. Especially on a hill, as it is. Saw nothing or I would have probed myself, I have 6' 20 lb. bar, same as undertakers use. If you have a cousin to undertake that, all well and good. But the lot is only about 6' square, I could easily probe it if you'd like. One thing you need to do, you'll love what you'll get... call Hollywood and get the lot diagram card, will show ALL the burials in the lot (marked or unmarked) and will give you the burial dates too.

Hollywood Cemetery ~ Ben Catogni
Hello Shelton. I'm the person that claimed THIS photo request for you. I always hate saying this, especially a blood line, but it seems your Ben Catogni is an unmarked burial. Cemetery records DO attest he rests in section R, lot 135, but there was only one marker in that lot, being young Benjamin Dominici 1872-1873. No other markers there. (I closed your photo request with a lot photo.) You may want to call Hollywood at 804-648-8501 to ask about this young man who does NOT appear on Hollywood's lookup tool, make sure we're looking at the right lot? But I confirmed burials in the lots that frame 135, plus this Dominici lad shares YOUR name, so I have no doubt. Also, if you call that number and talk real nice to Mabel, you could probably get the lot diagram card, which will list ALL burials in that lot, may be helpful to you? Sorry it didn't work out. Rich.

I posted some more picture for you today, as well as a new listing for Benjamin's sister and brother in law, August & Alma Simonpietri. They are buried right in front of your ggreat grandparents. Hope this helps even more.

RE: Photo requests
I was so happy to be able to help. I understand the joy of finding new information about family and it can be very difficult at times just to get that little piece. I know, I have so many brick walls that I wonder if chipping will ever break through, but I am very thankful for this website. I have found immense amounts of help here and am very happy to be able to give that back to someone else who is searching as diligently as I am. :) I hope the photos are ok, quality-wise. They actually came out better than I thought they would on my phone. Many blessings to you as you continue your quest for your family.

RE: Dominici family
