Beersheba Cemetery
Hi Fran.....You and I share Mary Henry Smith (Find A Grave #21636822) and James Smith (Find A Grave #41442258) as 4G Grandparents. Do you have any idea where in the Beersheba Cemetery their graves are located? I plan to travel there next week and will try to find them, but some help would certainly be appreciated!! Thank you. Debra Smith Grubbs

RE: Jones Pictures
Thanks for the information but unfortunately the Atkinson we are looking for is Laura Atkinson. I think she is buried at the Jones Emmanuel Church Road Cemetery but the grave has not been located. That cemetery is in the middle of a field and the GSSTF said there may be other gravesites located there. Hopefully I will make it back to Smithfield and do some more hunting.

Thanks for what you are doing for the Isle of Wight cemeteries.

RE: Jones Pictures
Fran,
I am more than happy to help. You have encouraged me to go back to photos I captured in 2008 and 2009 and add them to memorials. Also, have been linking many of the Jones and Edwards in the Isle of Wight cemeteries.

No, I'm not related, so will be glad to transfer both him and his wife if you would like to manage their memorials.

RE: Bateman
From FAQs page:
How do I add a memorial when I'm not sure what cemetery they are buried?
This is similar to adding a memorial for cremation. Do not create a new cemetery which does not exist in order to add these memorials. Location of body unknown should be used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. Final disposition should be determined and updated within 30 days.

RE: Pendleton
Was, Fran. This cemetery *was*. I thought I answered this a while back by email, but maybe not:

If you were doing an archaeological dig or dredging the river looking for gravestones, the church building itself was located southeasterly
of Tunstall's Station?, Point?, Landing? which I believe may still show up on later maps, Tunstall's ____ anyway; it was along the Mattapony River in New Kent County.

Travel in those days was primarily by boat. Counties changed under their inhabitants feet without any help at all from Two Guys & a Truck. I'm intrigued by "They" (I'm assuming refers to
volunteers answering your photo requests?).

*Historical markers* !!! Did they send you pictures of them? Put up by whom? When? Where? Saying what? And from what source? (Bishop Meade 1789-1862 had no luck determining where it had been before his day, nor Rev. Slaughter following. My information is from piecing together scraps of deeds, anecdotes in family histories of early Clayton neighbors, day books, whatnot and lotsa mapping.

Official government pronouncements, usually off by
a few years when it comes to county divisions since population increases precede petitions for more accessible courthouses,etc...however that may be easier to search even by name now that much of what still exists has been put online.

Regardless, in the year & 4 mos. I've been with Find A Grave working mostly on my more immediate family and their friends & neighbors in Green County, Wisconsin ~ I actually witnessed the movement of one whole cemetery from Brodhead in
Green County into a neighboring county. No it didn't fall into the river, or be destroyed by war, weather or decree ~ but by the click of a mouse. (The explanation is something about which side of the county line that runs thru it)

And I'm wondering, a couple of hundred years from now when kids are searching the records for the origins of their furthest back grampas 'n grammas who lived all their lives in Brodhead ~ will they be looking in Green County or Rock?

Fran, were you the one that asked if I would transfer Kitty to you? I now have posted the pic where Clarence is buried with no marker. Dee

Hi, all the info I have on Joseph and his family is on his memorial page.
Some is proven and some is not.

Hi, Fran,
I'm sorry but I have no information on anyone buried there. I sometimes choose a cemetery or name at random and leave a message or flower.

Take Care,

Mary

I am sorry, but no relation. I post pictures of headstones and post memorials of graves I find in cemeteries that are not posted already.

RE: 105815867
It is my understanding this is a singular grave. You can read more about it, and see many quality photographs of it at:

http://boatsandballs.blogspot.com/2008/12/norwich-pettus-family-roots-day-1.html

The plaque with his name on the tomb reads:
"HERE VNDER RESTETH THE
BODY OF S JOHN PETTVS KNIGHTE
CITIZEN AND ALDERMAN OF
NORWICH WHO AGED 64 YEARS
DEPARTED THIS LIFE THE NYNTH
OF APRIL 1613"

I hope this was helpful!

RE: 105815867
Fran,
I am fairly certain the tomb is simply a single one. [You can look at the size and it is really more like a reliquary than a tomb. However, the family is memorialized above the tomb in the statuettes and bas relief.

Wow! Findagrave already checked it out. Here is their answer:

There's a problem with a server. All the photos are safe and will reappear when the problem is solved.


Thanks for writing,

That is strange cause none of my pictures in this cemetery are showing up. I'll check with findagrave to see what is going on. Thanks for letting me know.

Gant photo requests
Hi, the volunteers would be happy to fill your photo request however we will need a burial location to do so.
Can you please contact Laurel Land and get a burial location for your request? The number is 214 371 1336

or the email link is:
http://www.laurellanddallas.com/home/contact_us.html

There are over 390 photo requests currently and the volunteers cannot ask for that many locations to fill requests. With a location, your request will get filled pretty quickly. Thanks for your help!
