RE: Duplicate Entry
The only thing I can think is that has not updated information since April 2013--both Benjamin and Charles were done then--I did Benjamin. Other than that I have no idea, but I am glad you notified them, perhaps someone will attend to adding them. I love doing this and helping people "connect dots"--so to speak. I appreciate your help AND your kind words--thank you!

Harold, it is a possibility that when I was taking inventory of the Cemetery, I could have copied the lasst name down wrong. Since their were some wheeler's in that cemetery. Sorry for the mistake.

RE: Strong Cemetery
Hi, Harold....I'll never forget Bradley. Not only did we go to school together, but to birthday parties and other kids' activities as well. He was happy, and eager to jump around and play with us as much as he could. I never got to meet his older brother, but my mother visited Prissy and Frances a good bit. Yes, I knew about Frances' death. They were all wonderful people. Are you related to Mr. Ray and Richard McClendon? There is a new "Strong" book coming out very soon, which Richard can tell you about. He and I have assisted the author with several chapters of it, and I think everyone will enjoy it. Thanks for your message!

Lydia Tallmadge
Hi Harold. I went over there today and took photos of her stone and added them to her memorial. As you will see, I copied down year of death wrong. It is 1934, and I have corrected this on her memorial.

As to Mary or James, there no other Tallmadges buried there. One thing you should know, this cemetery was founded in 1924 so that would be the earliest burials. Since Mary was born in 1800, I doubt she is buried at some of the other cemeteries around here, either. Inglewood was founded in 1905 and Pacific Crest in 1903. Woodlawn (in Compton) has some older burials, but I can't remember how far back. They are not easy to get a hold of by phone.

Good luck, I hope you find them. And thank you for your kind words.

Best Regards,

RE: Possible Error
Rats! I just checked, and I wrote it down that way, so one of those dates is obviously incorrect, and I have no way of knowing which one. I'll have to go back and actually look at what is on the stone.

Thanks again for noticing. I want this site to be accurate, too!

RE: Possible Error
Ooops! I'm sure you're right. I'll go back and check my transcription. I have transcribed a large portion of that cemetery and I'm in the process of going back and taking photos, as I have time. Thanks for pointing this out.

Hey Harold,

I was about to head off to Pohick to take photos when I noticed you had already posted them. It's good to claim, fulfill and get rid of the photo requests before others duplicate your efforts! Just saying..........
