This is Heather Gately, Meaghan Gately's sister-in-law. I just found out that her headstone was placed two days ago. Is there anyway you can go and take a picture of her headstone for us? We live in Mesquite but won't be down there for a few days and we would really like to see how it turned out. If this is too much to ask I understand. Thanks for your time.

Did I ever get back to you regarding those round clumps of cement with initials scratched in them in the Mt Moriah Cemetery. After talking to the gentleman who takes care of the books, he said those folks are still living and they marked the spot where their grave sites are. So no excitement in those finds. I went to his house with copies of the photos so he knows what I was talking about. We had a good chuckle. Linda

|Linda Rhoadarmer||RE Mt Moriah Cemetery|
I thought I had uncovered something real important but it turns out that wasn't true. This afternoon I went to the man who has the cemetery records and he said they were new. New meaning that the folks are still alive and were markers that they put in to mark their plots for later use. Some put markers and some did not. Some were covered with grass but now they are not. He indicated that the cemetery with the grave stones is the old one and the new one is the one with the more recent burials and those cement blobs with their initials they put on themselves was the new one. Go figure. Makes sense to me. I checked his grave book and the Sturdevants were not in it. Does not mean they are not here just they don't have a stone. Linda

I was at the cemetery this morning and the guy who cuts the grass was there. I talked to him and he told me that the older cemetery is on the left side of the existing cemetery as you face it. There are no head stones and there is only grass. So the older cemetery is between the trees and the existing head stones. I did find a few grave markers partially covered with grass. One in particular had the initials JG on it. The stone was only about 18 inches by 12 inches. Only a guess. Another one had a M on it and another had a W on it. I guess depending on which way one looks at it. Think I will take a screw driver over there and drive it into the grass and see what I can hit. Linda

|Linda Rhoadarmer||RE: Sturdevants|
O.K. this is the low down on the Sturdevants. This is from Mike Hahn who is in the family. "You (me) asked what made me think they were buried at Mount Moriah. The information came from a deceased Aunt. She advised me that they were buried in unmarked graves. Any additional information you may provide would surely help. They are my direct line.

Those were done quite a long time ago. I used a very old, basic photo program called Ulead. I'm sure it can be done with just about any photo editing program. There are many free ones available for download. You just need to look for them!

Talked to the man who has the church "records".
A lady in 1948 went through the cemetery and wrote down all the information from the headstones. That is what Mt Moriah has. The church has been rebuilt since 1830 due to two fires. If there were records, they are all gone. William and Ann Sturdevant do not have a head stone in that cemetery. They may be there but with no headstone. There are a lot of Sturdevants buried there. I guess the next step is to find out who has death records for this county. Linda

|Eddie Simpson||RE: Francis Shuman|
You're most welcome. I've been trying to get some photos of the same graves for my ancestry research. It's tough to get out to some of those remote cemeteries on Fort Stewart sometimes so I was happy I was able to finally get them.

Went to the service at Mt. Moriah this morning. I talked to folks there and there is no other cemetery off to the side of the existing cemetery. Doesn't make much sense to have an old cemetery and not have it as well taken care of as this one. They mentioned a Brown Cemetery that may have been for original folks but was moved but don't make too much of that yet. The pastor gave me a church directory and marked in it the name of the man who has the records so that is my next step. Linda

|Anne Cady||RE: Marilyn and Harold Stotzfus- Photos|
I went ahead and added it. I hadn't originally as the marker has not yet been inscribed with her date of death, and usually people prefer to wait to have the inscription completed before asking to have a picture posted.

A couple of other things. They could be in one of the Sturdevant sections but their headstones may have been broken off as I have noticed at this cemetery; especially if they have had those marble white ones. What I have seen here is just a small stub in the ground where they have been broken. Probably the base of what used to be there.
Another thing, we could go to the Lutheran church on Sunday and ask around. How about that? Like, do their records show where they are buried. I know they are buried here because I found on line (somewhere) a list of those buried in this cemetery. It is so pretty here.
In snooping through the responses, there was another lady who had done what I had done and she had the same problem in trying to find the "old cemetery". I will ask about that at the church also. Linda

|Linda Rhoadarmer||William & Ann Sturdevant|
I went back to Mt Moriah and just concentrated on William and Ann and I still did not find them. There is another generation for a William and Ann Sturdevant in the cemetery but not the dates you are looking for. From looking at the Find A Grave requests for the old dates (1700's) there seems to have been an old cemetery off in the trees and shrubs from the cemetery as it is today. I walked that also and there was nothing. Now the stones may not be there and vegetation over the years have covered the area up and trees and shrubs have over taken this area; There is a creek not far off from "The Old Area" and the land drops down into the creek. If anyone is buried under this mess, then they won't be found unless trees are cut down and a back hoe is brought in. Most adults seem to have big headstones or the families bought up sections so their whole family is buried in these section. So maybe for the 1700 time frame they may will be off to the side but one can not see anything but shrub. Sorry. Linda

|Linda Rhoadarmer||Mt Moriah|
I did look for all the requests at Mt Moriah cemetery and all the rest I could not find. They either did not have a stone, or they have been broken or the face of a stone can not be read. There are whole families there in sections; like the Browns, Sturdevants, Fox, and even different generations of them. The cemetery is attached to the Mt Moriah church. Have you ever been here? I guess I should mark those that I did look for as having a problem. We just got here yesterday from California to be camp hosts at Mount Catoctin Mountain NP and we will be here for two months so I guess I have time to go back and double check. I love doing this so after we settled in, the first thing I did was go to the cemetery. Beautiful cemetery and they have a beautiful view. Linda
