RE: Simcox's at McKee
Found a Laura C. Simcox 1854-1855, daughter of Shedrick and Sarah L. Simcox. She in in the Cross Cemetery, Church Street Clintonville, PA. It is only about one half mile from the McKee Cemetery where her parents are born. She appears to be their first child.

RE: John Hoge
That isn't surprising to me because I lot of Hogues had a George it seems died young :).I am at a complete brick wall with my George and have been for some time. Guess I need to go to Logan County Ohio because when he died he had heirs. Maybe I will find something in the courthouse to go on that is not online.

RE: BULL Headstone
I am trying to chip away at the long list of photo requests at Crystal Springs Cemetery. It is quite a task walking the whole 120 acre site. So far it is going well. I got a map at the office and that helps a lot. My main project has been Rose Hill in Berrien Springs, but I like the challenge at Crystal Springs. Sincerely, Kathy

RE: Hogue
I am now not sure which John Hogue I was referring to. I will have to check your family members and get back to you on that. My George Hogue was born in Cumberland County PA. Abt 1800 but I believe he was born before that. He marries Jane Bollinger and they move to Logan County OH. He dies before 1850 and I have no ideas what his exact death or birth dates are. He wife was born 1796 in Cumberland County, PA. Daughter of Abraham Bollinger and Eliza Diller.
George is in Allen, Cumberland County PA in 1800 and 1810 Census.
I know there are others in Cumberland County, PA that are Hogue and Hoge that also end up in Logan County, OH. I am trying to fit him with a parent but I have no marriage birth or death records to work with. argggg! :) The fun of a brick wall ancestor! Know where he comes from but dont know how to figure out who his parent was He names a son John

RE: Simcox's at McKee
I photographed the entire cemetery and am working on placing them on Find a Grave. If I come across another member of the Simcox family I will add it to Find a Grave.

#60397598 John Vernon Kirk
I saw you asked for photo and they said not buried there; usually you then remove the request. However I see on the death certificate they say Silver Brook, interred 4-11-1912. I looked at the "Friends" site and see a Vernon Kirk interment 3-9-12 on lot City-34-124-1. I wonder if this is him and the record made wasn't quite right. You might contact them and ask. There still might not be a stone but the location could then be documented. The site is There is also another Vernon that I thought might be his father that died in 1943 but his wife is not Clementine.

RE: Sarah Hogue
I agree with is why I've been trying like heck to get the cemetery done, they have dozen of broken marker just laying on the ground or leaning up against fences. I'm personally going with something low to the group and small because the beautiful big ones don't last.

Mary Catherine Woods
Thanks for all the 'Woods' information! Would you mind double checking to make sure I entered the information correctly? I was wondering about Mary K. Woods and have changed it to Catherine, but could this be spelled with a K? Just want to make sure it is right. cj

Nickersons in Saint Joseph Cemetery
I noticed that you have transferred maintenance of the memorials for Elkanah, Jr., Hannah, and Arthur Nickerson to me. I wasn't asking for a transfer, but I do thank you, since these people are my husband's family. I sincerely appreciate all the work you are doing for Findagrave and our families. Regards, Diane

RE: James A. Kirk
Yes, Shanghai Cemetery is a serene area. The sad thing is that with time and probably some vandalism, some of the stones are in sad shape. You will see that the stone for James and Mary Kirk was photographed for Find A Grave a few years ago and it was standing at that time. Now it is lying flat, broken into three pieces. It is an example of why Find A Grave volunteers need to photograph before a stone wears away and is forgotten. Sincerely, Kathy

RE: Aurelia Bell
It is sad but sometimes money is an issue. I found that my great-grandmother didn't have a headstone. So my aunt is going to pay to have one put on her grave. If I find any other relatives of mine without headstones I will pay to have them done. I just feel the need to do it.

RE: Coverts photo
Hello Carl and Judi ... you're welcome. It is my pleasure to help others get the stories and family histories told.

In regard to family histories ... are these Coverts any relation to Merrill D. Covert who served in WWII as a Pharmacy Mate 1st Class in the Pacific Theater. I knew him pretty well.

Thanks for the 'thanks' - Bill W

RE: Evans headstones
Hi, Judi,
I think her stone says: MARY EVANS wife of Thomas Evans died Sept 21, 1908 aged 64yrs 10mos 5days
Mary's side of the monument appeared the faintest, most weathered. If I can get a better picture in the future, I'll post it. Kathy

RE: Arthur Nickerson, 120521988
Hi, Judi. I have barely scratched the surface of the Nickerson connections. It would help a lot if they didn't have the same names, and didn't all live in the same place, following the same occupations! Aaargh! I see why my husband is letting ME do all the research. If and when I find out anything interesting, I will let you know. (I did find Elish Doane, Jr and Mehitable Nickerson, great grandparents of Zemirah and Elkanah Nickerson are listed in "Mayflower Births and Deaths" at See if this is actually your connection with Sarah Hogue.) Regards, Diane

RE: Simcox's at Patoka
Your welcome, sorry but I had taken these last year and forgot to add the memorials and photos. Maybe that was a good thing because I couldn't find them in the folder where I thought I had put them which led me back down to Patoka to redo them and I found James Walter on the other side. Everything happens for a reason.

RE: re Baudin

The graves being above ground have nothing to do with the water table. If you go to google maps you will see that Gamboa Cemetery is on a "Morro" a big rock/hill. There are some early paintings of the cemetery showing it in its original form back in the early 1800's. It was a lot closer to the beach then but progress has put a few roads and buildings between it and the sea. The cemetery is surrounded by a favela (some may refer it to a slum area) but like all favelas in Rio they command the best views because they are up high on the rock. Some graves do go down in the soil but only a certain distance as there is just solid rock under them. Most graves are on an annuity basis in Rio, although some are on perpetuity basis also. Hence those that are on an annuity basis often are reused, because payments stop, by later burials hence why there are no records of graves for some people. When people are "buried" their bodies are generally sealed inside these "vaults" and sometimes, after seven years the bones are removed and put in an ossory box and placed elsewhere. Some cemeteries (not Gamboa) also cremate the remains. There are a number of difficulties for genealogists tracing graves (generally) but in countries that have this removal/reburial practice then it is very problematic. Cheers Tony

Ed Smith
St Stanislaus Deaths 1957
Hi Judi,
Thanks SO MUCH for all your work!! The last few updates you requested caught my eye in that they all died in 1957 and all died at the Modesto State Hospital. The hospital was located on Blue Gum where part of the MJC campus is located now. Looks like 1957 was a bad time to be an inmate there. Oh well, Thanks again for all your updates and photos.

Thank you so much. You went above and beyond the call -- good picture and amazing info about their gravesites. Will have to get the family together to remedy the absence of marker for Burnette's. Thanks again.

Thank You once again for locating the area where Albert Abdullah is buried (no marker). I appreciate the time you took to search and asking the caretakers for verification on his final resting place.
