RE: Ingoldsby family
Thanks for your message. It is hard to find memorials for burials here in the UK prior to the eighteenth century, unless you are lucky enough to have ancestors famous or rich enough to be buried or remembered inside the church. Burials in the churchyards/cemeteries were usually topped with a wooden marker back then and you can imagine there are very few of those that have survived for three or four hundred years. The condition of stone memorials also can be variable. In Lincolnshire the limestone used wears very badly but some memorials are made of slate which is a wonderful stone that almost remains as good as the day it was carved. I have visited some churchyards where I have been faced with a hundred or more gravestones which are all completely unreadable. Some churches keep burial records but they are not readily available at present. But don't let me put you off. More records are appearing all the time and we may have a breakthrough.

Ingoldsby family
I do not know if you are aware that the original church of St Peter & St Paul Buckingham was demolished in the eighteenth century - about 1760. The churchyard does still exist and contains a few, unfortunately unreadable, tombs. The actual position of the original church is not easy to locate within the site but a "new" church was built in an elevated position close by. If your Ingoldsby family were buried in a vault in the old church then it would not be easy to find them. Is it likely that their memorials may have been moved to the new church?

RE: Edwin Haase
You are very welcome. It was odd when I saw your request that I remembered seeing Edwin's grave marker when I took the one next to his of Lydia Siefke marker last Friday. I knew it would be easy to find so I drove back out yesterday to take his.
Happy holidays to you and yours,

RE: henry vote
You are welcome. Merry Christmas to you also.

Yes there are many unmarked graves in the two cemeteries in Crookston. Some may have grave markers that have been over grown that I have not yet got to finding and others don't have markers. Maybe by posting they are unmarked graves, some family member might want to put one out.

Glad I was able to get you the photo you were hoping for. Pretty Prairie is a good distance from my home town and I don't usually get to this area. I would suggest that you add it to the photo requests and maybe someone whose closer can get it.

RE: Philander Ross
No problem! I retired about a year and 1/2 ago and this has been an interesting little hobby I have gotten into. My grandfather's sister Vanessa (Albert) married a Ross and I recognize some of the other Ross names in Old Mission and have added their pictures as well. Philander's I don't know but I had the list of requests with me on Tuesday so we snapped his picture too. The weather wasn't too bad - still warm and windy. The cooler temps and some rain came later in the day.

Cannot get a grave location from the manager, it appears we are out of luck here, sorry about that.

I'm glad that I was able to help. We too live far away from the graves of our ancestors, that is what this makes this website so great.

RE: Moses Evers
You are very welcome. Did you notice how the first name was spelled on the headstone? "Mose"

Joseph Hepworth
Hi - there are two memorials for the same Joseph Hepworth. This one was created four months before the other created by Lynne. Contact findagrave at and ask them to merge the two.
Good luck - Davis Arnold

Jacob Fattig photo request
In 2013 there was no marker for Jacob. However, if you know that one has been erected since then I'll go over and get a photo.
