Hi again -- I was also wondering how you knew his father was Solomon and her maiden name? Are there more headstones in the area or are you connected? Kristin

I just had to tell you -- on Sunday I sat down with my future sister in law to help her with her family tree (my greatest hobby). We talked about her extensive Jewish roots. On that very day, you uploaded the headstone of her great grandparents Dora & Sam. So crazy about the timing! It's a great find that they have photos right on the headstone. Thanks for doing this.

It is my understanding there are no available burial records for Graveland Jewish cemetery, beyond the stone reading that was done(?) He is not buried in Cootes cemetery in Pope county, his headstone was merely dumped near there some years ago by vandals or whatever unscrupulous, shady characters. It's not even an actual cemetery. It is believed that his headstone was stolen from Jewish Graceland, which is why he would not have been recorded in the stone reading in 1986. If there are actual burial records for Graceland, please let me know. I will replace the photo request because I would like to know if his stone is returned. Thanks for the information though, I appreciate it.

Could have saved myself some time by checking your list before tracking Eva Hire through her uncle Ernest Mayo :)

Thank you so much for competing the edits for Abraham and Tina Burton, and for posting photos of their headstone.
And what a beautiful and peaceful headstone with the lovely tree trunk and large branch growing into the headstone! Such a lovely photo!
Thank you for all that you do to remember those who have passed.
