RE: Doughertys
I've been told by people both things that the office CAN tell you if there is a headstone or not, and that they cannot. But for verification, I would still suggest trying. You can ask them who bought the plot and that may give you a clue, along with the last person buried there, of which of your family members holds the deed. You need to have the deed to bury someone and to erect headstones. As for the lack of headstones, I find it very common. People couldn't afford it and if they did have a little money, they had to set priorities so I'm sure their children's needs came first. Our parents, once they and their siblings became adults, got prices for two stones in the vicinity of the cemetery (they all lived scattered in the U.S.) and divided the cost among them. They were relieved and happy to know they accomplished what their descendants weren't able to, as a gift to them.

RE: photo for Julia Dougherty
I'm sorry, if you click the picture it should explain. But there is no headstone for Julia, but her burial location is between the two headstones shown. When I first started volunteering I would "report" there was no headstone and almost everyone contacted me asking me to go back and take a photo anyway. I was spending so much time duplicating my searching that I stared taking and uploading the sites automatically whether there was a headstone or not. If you want me to take the picture down, I would be happy to.

Your record of William O'Hara 105268018, husband of Catherine V O'Brien O'Hara Find A Grave# 15216034 is also saved by Carol under Find A Grave# 15216035.

These records should be merged. Thanks, JIM

Smith S Matlock
I walked the area given as the location of burial for Matlock, there was no visible headstone. The cemetery staff is working on information per a request you sent them. Perhaps they will uncover further information for you.

Related to Mary Payne and James Alexander
Hello Kate,

Mary Payne and James Alexander are my ancestors too. The connection for me is through my 4th GGF John Crousore b. 1773 Lancaster, PA whose grandson was John J Crousore b. 1843 Howard, IN. His wife was Mary Evelyn Plummer; her mother was Priscilla Jane Alexander b. 1824 Fleming, KY whose parents were Mary Payne and James Alexander. Was wondering what degree cousin that makes us.

MacWhorter Children
Kate, I'm not sure of the relationships involved, but the two headstones in the "group picture" I loaded for you did have sites already on findagrave but no pictures. So, I added one for each child...Joseph Henry Adams, age 5 and another George Gray MacWhorter, age 6.

Also, I added a picture for Sarah that didn't have one on her site.

RE: macwhorter picture
Kate, Your welcome mam.

By the way, I have the two children headstones in one picture that I did not load there -if you wish for me to add. I can add it to their grave sites (if they have them) or email the picture to you. Either way, think about it and let me know.

My mother was Naomi Ruth Doolittle Knepper. She was the daughter of Isaac Hayden Doolittle.
The way she pronounced the name Hedden sounded like Hayden. Since there was no set way of spelling names at the time, I am sure that they just spelled it as best they could according to how the sounds of the letters presented themselves.
