Diddy & Doodle: Please add to your all murdered virtual cemetery Lori, Kandace, and Amber Duncan of Elmwood St.Joseph Cem, Mason City IA. Mother and daughters were killed to cover up a drug crime in 1993 and found buried together years later.

I just like cemeteries and leaving flowers. Thanks are not necessary. If you would like me to remove my token from your memorial, you have only to ask. If you're in my friends list, you probably have a virtual cemetery I want to wander. I came here to find Rhonda Lou Jones, buried in Britt IA. She is one of the memorials in my virtual cemetery "missed." The first person entered in "missed" was Mary Helen Swope, whom I was dismayed to find here. Tiny cemetery with fewer than 100 people? I'm there! Cemetery in an odd place (traffic circle, parking lot, median strip)? Love it! Abandoned/neglected cemetery with headstones centuries out of date? Cool! Cemetery I would most like to participate in clean-up and restoration: Old Trinity Cemetery, in the awesomely-named Bone Gap, Edwards County, IL. I visit it on environmentalgraffiti.com. They wrote an article about it: "Nature Reclaims an Abandoned and Forgotten Cemetery," in 2010. Cemetery I most want to see in person: Saint Francis Assisi Cemetery in Brainerd, MN. It's located in Crow Wing State Park--how cool is that? I learned of its existence via Amy C. Rea's blog entry for May 9, 2012. http://knitthink.typepad.com/flyoverland/2012/05/5-weeks-5-parks-5-ks.html. Most disturbing cemetery pictures: with CemeteryTraveler's article "The Watery Remains of Monument Cemetery." Cemetery I want to see before it disappears completely: Orphans' Home Cemetery in Atchison, Kansas. How I want my remains disposed of: Take my ashes and those of my beloved pet, put us in a Bios Urn, and plant us on the site of my childhood home. Add violet & viola seeds. Put up a field stone (we have enough of them around), engraving optional. Let the Bios Urn tree, as it grows, engulf the stone. Carving tree trunk optional. Never dig me up again.

RE: Samuel B. Field
Hi AR,

Thanks for your kind words. It was actually Jack Sanders that got the best shot from 1973. Its interesting to see the movement of the tree gradually covering the gravestone.

You may find this interesting: Our State Archaeologist, Dr. Nicholas Bellantoni, told us a story of a large uprooted tree that had 6 sets of bones 2 adults & 4 children in the ball. It uprooted in such a way that the skeletons had their head towards the ground and their feet up. Interesting Google "bones found under uprooted tree"

Thanks again,

Gary Boughton

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN
Thank you. Yes he was a deist, believing in good virtue, good works and doing good for his fellow man and his community/country. He gave up Purist, Calvinistic beliefs, etc, but not his belief in God and moreover his strong belief in freedom of religion, all religions.

I am a proud descendant of Benjamin Franklin.

Best Regards, Nancy

Please remove your flowers from my ancestor Benjamin Franklin. He was indeed NOT an atheist. Thank you.

RE: Flowers for Joseph Locke Clark
If you want to know about lost people, here are 47,000. This is about the cemetery Joseph Locke Clark's mother was buried in. I can't believe what some people will do. This is now a barren park where the famous Philly cheese places are. Sad, sad. Lita

How did you know she died by suicide? Just curious...

Thank you for leaving her a message though.

Flowers for Joseph Locke Clark
Thank you so much! The war was so terrible and we tend to forget how young they all were. His sister Mary Ann was my great grandmother. Lita K

Horry Rhodes
I really don't know if his name was Horry or Harry. There is a Horry County in South Carolina, and as geographical names were popular with earlier generations, it could really be Horry rather than Harry. It was written as Ho.

RE: Thank you so much!
I'm glad it worked out. My husband thought it was strange that the groundskeepers wouldn't have gotten rid of the tree when it started to encroach on the site.
