Aldridge Jackson It saddens me to inform you that his stone is wearing away. His first name is gone and Jackson is getting hard to read. Its not breaking off, seems to be wearing off from rain. The edges are not sharp but rounded. Fortunately, I could make out the last name and the dates are ok. I took the picture and got home. I found the Jacksons and compared the dates. Saw who it was and read his bio and seen the pictures as it looked before. At present his stone is the oldest born person I have found. I'm sure their are older, but time has eroded away who they were, some have just rocks as markers and some have nothing. Rockport's history goes back a long way. You, as descendants, I felt should know.
Memorial # 9923871 I wonder if there is any way you might be able to confirm the date of death for Cpt John Givens? The dated is listed as 1790 but the sort of looks on the headstone looks later than that. I know dates can be off but the this looks like years off. Most records show him dying in November of 1790 but this looks like he was born in November and died in April. Anyway, any clarification you can provide would be appreciated.
Thanks for answering my request about the cemetery. The e-mail I received stated that my relative, Harry Beathe, was buried in the wrong cemetery and there was no Fort Defiance Cemetery and I should moved him to the Augusta Stone Presbyterian Church Cemetery. It seem this person believes that the Fort Defiance Cemetery is part of the church cemertery.
My question is: Is Fort Defiance consider part of the Church cemetery or is it consider as a seperate cemetery? Just need to know which cemetery Harry should be listed in.
I have a family member buried in Fort Defiance Cemetery. Today, I received an e-mail stateing that there is no Fort Defiance Cemetery but it is called the Augusta Stone Presbterian Church Cemetery. Since you took the photo of the cemetery, I'm assuming you will the truth. I not want to transfer the family member unil I know the truth. Is these two cemetery the same are they two different cemeteries?
