RE: Boughman Pics

Has a listing of everyone that's supposed to be up there. I searched everywhere carefully and did not find some of these graves. At some point they must have had markers or records.

There is a Maxwell and some Dunnings and Urbans, but no Dukes. I think there are a couple of Duke women up there, but buried under husbands' names. Also some Merians. In the listing, at that web site, "Fredie W. Yerian" is actually Freddie W. Merian. "Fracie" is "Gracie." Also I think Henry Adrian might be Henry Urban. Anna Gorley, who like her sister Cora died young, is on the Gorley stone but not in the listing. Also I think a GAR vet named Cornelius Hurley is in that cemetery. His wife was Mary Gorley but she doesn't seem to be with him. There's another GAR vet, David Todd, who was married to a Williams but she isn't buried with him. There is a "D J Bunton" who I'd guess is a "Buxton" but no sign of Sidney.

A couple of broken and weathered stones I was able to figure out from being able to read one name and that name only occurring once in the cemetery list.

Also note that Margarette Boughman is NOT in this list.

There is one very large sandstone monument that is badly weathered and I can't tell whose it was. The largest monument in the cemetery.

I hope they will be able to combine those duplicates fairly soon.

RE: Boughman Pics
Larry, there are lots of other names. Unfortunately I added a bunch of them to the cemetery at High Hill. I discovered last night that there's a duplicate cemetery out there called Wallar's Cemetery (after one of the oldest burials, Samuel Wallar). Between those two, you should be able to find all the names.

I don't think I'm going to create any more memorials as yet. I requested today that these two cemeteries be merged into one. Hopefully they will save the pictures and the work I did on dates as well as all the graves you created.

Definitely Amanda and Sidney were little ones of William A. Boughman. I just wonder where Margarette is buried and if she perhaps married again since William died quite a while before her? Or maybe they buried her up there and didn't engrave the stone... I've not found her death certificate so I may be all wet.

Boughman Pics
You're welcome. I had quite a time even finding the place and without a helpful local I might not have! I spent 4 or 5 hours up there today adding all the graves I could find and taking notes and pictures. I had paper with me to do rubbings and managed to find quite a few stones for people that weren't listed before.

There is only a single Boughman monument. On one side are Jesse and Ruth, on the opposite side are the four children, without dates -- Mary, Sidney, Amanda, and Willie (who I assume is William A Jr, 1859-1870).

On the front is William A. Boughman, by himself, no sign of Margarette. I searched thoroughly and there's no trace of her. If they buried her there in 1903, then they didn't engrave the marker...

Best, Jim

hi, your memo 116745008 is a dup of 54051189. please delete yours. thanks

Hi there, I am perfectly ok with transferring to you all of the Wrights that I have with the exception of John and Olive. I am not the kind of researcher or person that must "own" memorials. For me, it is much more important that the information be correct and as much detail as possible. You have done a lot of research and I would like you to have the credit for your efforts. If you agree, please request via the edit.
