RE: Cyrus Howe - Howes Corners Cemetery
I haven't given up yet. There are about seven memorials without photos that I haven't resolved yet. All of them are really old markers from the mid to late 1800s.

I also have several photos of illegible markers in bushes. Hopefully, I will be able to match some of them to the memorials without photos.

Here is a link to a transcription I am using to help. It is mostly accurate, but there are mistakes on the transcription that I have found.

Keep your fingers crossed!

Cyrus Howe - Howes Corners Cemetery
I recently photographed all the visible markers at Howes Corners and did not find any markers for Cyrus, E.S., and Lydia Howe.

According to a cemetery transcription on, the markers for E.S. Howe are broken. The marker for Lydia is under a bush. I found several markers that were under bushes so it is possible that I have photographs of them, but I don't know which ones they are.

I will see if I can contact the sexton for the cemetery and find out where they are located.

Frentress Cemetery
Hi Jay,

Don't know if you can find out how to fix it, but Find A Grave has misspelled Frentress Cemetery as Fentress.

Mary Mittelsteadt
Many many many thanks for taking and posting a photo of Mary & William Mittelsteadt's tombstone. This past weekend I was working with a friend on her tree and we are struggling a bit on this line and felt it would be helpful to see the tombstone to confirm the information. She will be amazed to see that someone took a photo so quickly. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this!
All the best. Lynn - Madison, Virginia
