Bio Photo The photo is of the Mark 13, Mod 0, Guided Missile Launcher aboard the USS Berkeley, DDG-15, somewhere in the Western Pacific, about 1978.

Thank you to all who create memorials. Would love to visit every cemetery in person but I'm fairly sure that's not going to happen. Find A Grave is the next best thing.

RE: Rhodes family bible

Thanks for all your messages - I will think about the Bible!

Yes, please use the photos of the portrait drawings I sent.

I would be very interested in a copy of your document when it is finished. I too am writing something about what I know of the family and I will also send a copy to you.

I am checking what photos/images I have that might fill a few gaps - it will probably be easier if we email direct?, my address is:

Joseph and Anne Rhodes
I am a linked to the Rhodes through Robert Rhodes (son of Peter Barnard Rhodes) who moved south to Hertfordshire in the 1880s and one of his daughters was my maternal grand mother (Kate)
I have some very old photos of 3 sons of William Rhodes c 1860 and a couple of miniature portraits that look to be 18th century and could be Joseph and Anne.....

Rhodes in Balby cemetery England
Not sure if it is of interest to you but have just added photos to many of the memorials that you have added to St John Church, Balby. Still adding photos so there will probably be more

Hello, While I cant be much help to you finding NZ Burials, as I now live in Australia; I do have extensive information regarding the Rhodes who are in NZ (My husband comes down the Joseph Rhodes 1826-1905 lines)

Kind regards, Julie

RE: Nancy(Jane) Coupland
Hi Jerry
I've put photos of church on the cemetery page. I'm afraid the actual headstone is not readable in the photos I have taken so I shall return soon with water and a soft brush and try to clean it a little. There is a book in the church listing all graves which says there was possibly a mistake made by the mason and that Jane has possibly been changed to Ane (or attempted to). It does look as if efforts have been made to obliterate the 'J'. If you would like a copy of this book entry and the headstones send me your email to

Nancy(Jane) Coupland
Hello again
Yes I will go tomorrow and photograph your grave (weather permitting). My sister and I are going for lunch in Paull - about 4 miles away - but if it rains like it did today I won't be tramping around a cemetery ..... lol.
Micklefield ans Wakefield (West Yorkshire) are only about 12 miles apart so your assumption could well be right. Have you not been able to find the family on - maybe too far back.
Will get back to you and if it's ok I can post the photos straight to the memorial site.

Nancy Coupland
Today I decided to see if I could find your relative's grave in Paull cemetery. There are a lot of old graves but even more spaces were graves were. I found nothing in this name but I did find a Jane Coupland, wife of James, died 18 January 1824 aged 45. Taking together death date and age makes the 1779 birth date correct. Could this be her grave, as I know due to my own research that people changed names at will years ago? If you think this could be your ggg aunt then I will return and photograph the grave, cemetery and part of the village of Paull. I will also go and look in the church itself when it is open as apparently they have a book of burials.
