RE: Enoch
Hi Valerie, Just a heads up... I was not able to go to Nevada and look for your Enoch. I have sent another request for help on this matter. I know that if I was the one looking and in Nevada this would have been all taken care of for you by now. And if I couldn't take care of it, I would have told you that we couldn't / or didn't have the info. I will give this another couple weeks and if nothing then we will DEAD LETTER FILE it.

Hi Valerie,
I haven't forgotten about your request. I have since gone out to the person that handles all of Douglas County research in Cemeteries. Name is Bill Cook. He normally answers me within a couple days. However he still has not gotten back to me. I am a little fed up with him. At any rate... I am going up the that area in June and will see if I can walk the cemetery and look for the burial for you. If I find it, I will email it back to you. Sorry it has been so long. Sometimes these things take time.

RE: Enoch Jordan
Hi Valerie,
I am getting back to you with information on Enoch Jordan, In his obituary that I found after I signed up for Ancestry.com tells me that he worked for Dangberg investments in the Carson Valley. As far as I know the Dangberg Ranch is still around up there in Gardnerville area. What you may want to do is do a search for a phone number for the Dangberg Ranch and see if anyone can give you any other information as the exact location of the plot. If they cant I may be able to check it out when I go up to Nevada in June. Let me know what you find out.

Enoch
So far it's been a slow go. They normally answer back fairly quick. If I was up there, I would walk the entire cemetery for ya. And I know there was a name like that there. I just can't place it in the layout of the cemetery. You walk these cemeteries you get to know names and locations.

Enoch
I am still trying for you to get the info from the person that does the Nevada Genweb info. It's still a good chance we could find out where Enoch is at, and possibly obtain photos. I went to them once last month and received no reply, I just sent another in hopes that I might hear something before Christmas.. We will see what turns up.

Hi Valerie,

Just heard back from Linda Reid, she is the "keeper of the book" for the Garden (aka Gardnerville) Cemetery. I am sorry to say that she does not have a listing for Enoch. We don't doubt that he is buried there, but due to the fact that the cemetery has quite a few unmarked graves, we just don't know where.

I am very sorry that I could not have been of more help.

Sue :(

RE: Enoch Jordan
Valarie, I know who to call to find out where Enoch's plot is, if he is indeed buried in the Garden Cemetary. Let me make the call and I should be able to get back to you in a day or two at the most.

Sue:)

RE: Enoch Jordan
I would see if they would send you a copy of the obit and add his name to the cemetery along with the obit. Note that there is no stone has been found.

RE: Enoch Jordan
I also have another person that helped me tremendously on all Douglas County queries. He suggested I go to the person that actually just recently transcribed the cemetery with up to date burials. I have emailed her and hopefully I will hear back soon. I am thinking that now I did see Enoch Jordan buried in the back of the cemetery where the older burials were, but I don't what they used for the marker. Let's see what happens on both ends.

RE: Enoch Jordan
What you can do is try to contact the cemetery and see if they have a record of the burial and a plot number. I am trying to remember off the top of my head if there was an office on the premises or not. Each time I went there I just walked the cemetery to locate my head stones. I am not sure where you live or if you can get to the cemetery or not. But the cemetery is not that big. There are a lot of old plots there etc. And if you look at the cemetery page on Find A Grave you can see two pictures. One I took and another someone else took. There are older graves in the rear of the cemetery and they are showing just dirt no grass. There are NO markers that are buried on the outside of the cemetery unless back in the year you have of death, they didn't have walls and the grave was already there. I would call City of Gardnerville and see who you would contact for the actual cemetery.

I am in California at the moment. I will write myself a note for when I am back to see if I can help straighten this out. In the meantime, you could call the Logan City Cemetery and ask them to check their records. Remember that only the memorials that are created by Findagrave users appear on the Findagrave listings. There could be many more on the actual cemetery records. I would Google Logan City Cemetery to find the phone number. If you are not in the US or Canada, let me know and I will call them for you.

RE: Tims
Here is a link to a large map of the Cherokee Nation from 1900.

http://www.raremaps.com/gallery/enlarge/20495

The geography of the area was changed considerably by the damming of the Illinois River to form Lake Tenkiller in 1947.

If you look on the map at Range 20 East, and then scroll north, you'll find Braggs just north of the T13N mark. That's where you'll find Camp Gruber today. The Ballard Cemetery where Tims was buried was originally located somewhere in that area.

The names of the towns in that area of the map may may be useful in your search.

RE: Tims
Greenleaf Cemetery is made up of graves relocated when Camp Gruber was built in 1942. You can find more information on its history here: http://www.angelfire.com/ok/bettyhaven/greenleafceminfo.html

The rock on the Tims grave is maybe a foot across. To the right is a metal post with a barely legible plaque. I think these little plaques were used to replace stones that were lost or broken when the graves were relocated from Camp Gruber.

Most of the plaques I have looked at are badly corroded and illegible. Many plaques are missing from the posts entirely. The few plaques I can read have three lines of data: Name of the deceased, name of the original cemetery, and the date it was moved.

I could barely read MR Tims on the name line. The origin line seems to read "Ballard," but I am not entirely certain. The third line is totally illegible.

The website listed above states that the Ballard cemetery was relocated to this part of the cemetery. This specific section, EC3, came from a cemetery southeast of the William "Bill" Ballard place near the Cherokee-Muskogee County line.

RE: Enoch Jordan
Hello Valerie, Sorry that I have not gotten back to you sooner, but I am in the middle of a house re-modeling project.

Let me know if you have not heard back from FitzHenry's and I will try to do some checking here in town.

RE: Enoch Jordan
To be honest, I have only walked Mottsville and Genoa Cemeteries in Douglas County. If time allows on my next visit to Minden/Gardnerville I will go to another cemetery.

RE: Enoch Nephi Jordan
Most definitely go to the place listed on the death certificate. they should have all the other details of burial and you should be able to go from there. I would love to hear what you find out as I do remember a name like that in my travels. If there is a way you can send me a private email about this that would be great.

RE: Enoch Nephi Jordan
Valerie to be honest with you, I am thinking that I may have seen this marker in my cemetery travels. There aren't many markers placed on the outside of the cemetery. I am just trying to think of where that was. The cemeteries in Carson Valley in some of the cemeteries are very old and they don't always have the most traditional markers. I even tried to do a rootsweb.com and an Latter Day Saints death search to see if I could pick up a burial location for you. But nothing. The only thing I can tell you is to see if your grandfather could give you a partial name of a cemetery and go from there OR visit all the cemeteries in Gardnerville and Minden Nevada and go from there. If your grandfather tells you that he is there, you will find him.

RE: Enoch Jordan
Hi Valerie,
After a very thorough check both with the Nevada Genweb Archives and all the cemeteries that I know of in the Gardnerville, Minden areas plus the Washoe Indian Cemetery in Carson City and Lone Mountain Cemetery in Carson City, I am not able to locate anything for Enoch. I am hoping that you will have better luck with the mortuary up there and that they would have better records than I have found.

I am sorry that I couldn't have been more of a help. And If if still lived up there, I would go walking the cemeteries to look for the grave for you.

RE: Enoch Jordan
Hi Valerie,
I just recently moved to Southern California after living in Gardnerville, Carson City NV areas. I will look for you to see if I can find him. There are a couple cemeteries. There is the Mottsville Cemetery in Minden, Genoa Cemetery in Genoa, Eastside Memorial Park in Gardnerville, Garden Cemetery in Gardnerville and Lone Mountain Cemetery in Carson City, NV. This may help you. But I will also look on my end too. The name sure sounds familiar like I might have seen it. Good luck in your search. I will let you know if I find anything.
