No Joseph Herring grave marker
Hello Garbanza,

I've been walking Woodlawn Cemetery for over 11 months. The first burial in this very old cemetery was 1867. And, back-in-the-day, a section near Webster Avenue was set aside for burials of persons who could not afford pricier plots or for whatever reason were buried here. This area is noted in the records as the City Lot and is now recognized as Potters Field. There is even a stone marker designating it as such and states: 1868-1967 Rest in Peace.

Of the hundreds of recorded burials in the City Lot, there are only about eight (8) visible markers to be found, many not fully legible. None, sadly, bear any reference to Joseph Herring.

Since your Joseph was one of the earlier burials, was stillborn, and there is not a definite record of a marker, I feel you might as well remove your request from Find A Grave because future searchers will run into the same roadblock.
