RE: Hannah Todd Heaton
I used a mirror for that. I put info in the caption. Hard to photograph that section, if the headstones would only turn around everything would be clear as day!

Henry Driver
I must have been very tired last night. I have only got to looking at Henry's Cenotaph site this morning. The headstone is not in very good condition is it. Any chance you can make out the wording on it?
Have you had a look at his actual burial place here in NZ? We think the headstones there are in bad condition, but in comparison they are not too bad. We are also lucky that they have all been transcribed by the Dunedin Branch of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists (this group does fantastic work and extremely accurate, which does make life a little easier. It certainly saves always having to trek to a Cemetery and locate a grave that can be difficult to get to, and at my age, with difficulty in walking, any help is good help.

Henry Driver
Hi there .. thank you for the photo of his stone in St. Annes. I'm not related and only got involved when it was discovered that there were Dups that turned out to be cenotaphs. As you know (?) there is also a gravestone for him and several others in Ireland. Thanks again.

RE: Record added: Mar 02, 2011 Find A Grave Memorial# 66373703
I am not sure what all this is about. I only have an interest in the Driver name in New Zealand, and somewhat in the USA and certainly Gloucester, England. There are two Driver lines that should connect up somewhere in Gloucester. This USA family and the ones in NZ. One line of it leads to the wife of one of my 1st cousins, the other to my husbands great grandfather. Seems that the Henry Driver who came from the USA was some sort of distant cousin of the Richard Driver who was hubby's ancestor. The trick is going to be finding it all and fitting them together. The occupations match, the English city of origin matches, and so do the names running through both families. Time will tell, in the meantime just adding burials as we find them whether they fit or not helps others.

Yes the pictures appear correct .. Thank you so much for your efforts!!! I know sometimes when the stones are hard to read you can't be sure they match up with the memorial.

Thanks again!

RE: Driver
I think you may have sent this message to me by mistake. Looks to me as if it should have gone to KBrownst.

I would like to help you with you headstone requests for ROSE HILL cemetery here in OKLAHOMA CITY but the cemetery not very helpful nor do they have good maintenance or grave markers to tell you where your at. I went to ask them if someone was buried here and they said it would cost me 5$ for that info. that their services is for family only and they had to call in to get the info. when i asked for maps of the cemetery so i can find where things are they said tell the family to request the map for the info on which they are inquiring. There phone number is 405-843-5771 or fax number 405-843-5754.

Hi James,

I just added photos to James Biddle, Jr's memorial page #126332505

I think you may have posted a photo of James Sr's marker there by mistake.

If it's not too much trouble, perhaps you might remove your photo if you find some time.

Thanks so much,

Memorial 55717404 - I am wondering why you added a photo of the headstone of Benjamin H and Viola E Pleasanton to my memorial. As far as I know they are not my Benjamin's parents, and do not fit in the family that I can tell. As far as I know his father was Edwin Pleasanton. Do you know something I don't? If not, please remove it.

No. Sorry, I don't know anything about Emily or Erich. I have taken a lot of photos at William Penn and this was one of them.
I found an obit for Erich and emailed it to you. His name was not on the headstone when I took the photo.

Jim, Cecil County Historical Society has some related documents including "Specification of Relocation of Bethel Cemetery".

Bethel Cemetery Re-interments
Hi Jim,

I'm on the other side of the Elk and it's about 30 minutes around the peninsula to Bethel. I follow up on requests there at least once a year.

I didn't know there was a list of those buried at the numbered markers and I don't think there are any of the original stones that haven't been transcribed and photographed. I received a number of requests and expect that some are accurate but there was no marker found for them.

There is some confusion between the former village of Bethel and the cemetery. Actually, there is a cemetery photograph I contributed and a bit of history in the caption but it's below pictures of the gate etc and not displayed. I requested that the Find-A-Grave managers consider moving it into plain sight but that didn't happen.

It's the memorial for the graves re-interred as a result of widening the canal and and the caption is as follows:

"Bethel was a tiny village built around a Methodist Church constructed in 1790 and the surrounding ancient burial ground. A newer church was constructed by John Pearce in 1849 at a cost of $3,000. Built on a trail first used by native Americans and that later became the main highway for the peninsula, the road to Bethel was scrapped by the government. Construction of the C&D Canal began in 1824 and bisected the village. A pivot bridge was built to connect the residents across the ditch with the church, school and store. The bridge was in use for about 100 years until the U.S. Government acquired the canal. Widening projects led to the demolition of most of the remaining structures and the village of Bethel ceased to exist. This marker stands as a memorial to the village and the relocated graves."

I don't recall who was contracted to relocate the old cemetery but one would expect a requirement to document the site would be necessary for such an historic site. Unfortunately, there was no requirement to document graves in the 18th century. I guess that's why we do what we do. My interest is genealogy and I share my results on Find-A-Grave. There are some caveats but it is free to all. I'll drop you a message if I find a potential source of the Bethel records.
