Lieutenant Colonel John Chambers
Hi. Thank you for your search for Lieutenant Colonel John Chambers. My proof for his burial at Oak Grove Cemetery is he was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Civil War that got killed in action & his obituary was in every major newspaper I saw across the country. I searched to pull up several obits. I have been a genealogist for the past 25 years & only created the Find A Grave. Lieut. Col. John G. Chambers (1828-1864)because I found several copies of his obit of my wife's 3 greats- grandfather. We have his original Civil War picture and was also told through the family he was buried there. I wanted proof & that was when I searched My e-mail is . Feel free to e-mail me.

Gradys in Oak Grove
I should have put in a tombstone photo request earlier for Margaret Grady (Memorial #162307559)when I did her parents James & Ellen Grady. I just discovered this omission. Margaret is in Curtin Lawn, Grave N, 109. I have just added her to the Oak Grove photo request list. The plot information in this cemetery is really weird. Obviously you understand how to find these tombstones. Hopefully you haven't been to the cemetery yet. Thank you for claiming these memorials.

Hi Bob,
I mistakenly recommended you update Thomas Hitchcock (1823 - 1890)with his father Richard W Hitchcock (1843-1904). However, Richard W is his son, not his father. Sorry for the confusion.

Re- Sergeant ( Obs. ) William W Johnstone
Grateful thanks Bob for taking the photo of William's grave- he was my late father-in-law's brother. The family have never managed to get out to Germany to see his grave, so this is a great comfort for them.
Many thanks again,
Carol Johnstone.

RE: (#47118595) Margaret
The Margaret # is a member's number not a memorial. Her actual memorial is # 100664412.

Bob, the 2 memorials in question are # 81939658 at Pines Cemetery & # 127556546 at Fairmount Memorial Park. (I submitted my edits to the Fairmount memorial because Edgar's wife is buried at Fairmount)

The memorial # 81939658 is "managed" by Margaret member (#47118595) but sadly Margaret has passed away. My dilemma ~ is somebody else managing those memorials? i am not sure who I should pose my questions to. I think Edgar WAS interned at the Pines Cemetery originally & may have been moved to the Fairmount Memorial Park but how do I find out?

On a side note as I see you enjoy taking pics of headstones in unusual far off places.......I have one for you. Its Edgar's brother~Rev. Howard Bigelow. Howard's memorial is # 162771716.

Howard was killed by an elephant in the Congo 1951. I posted excerpts from old newspapers to his memorial. The original news articles are a lot longer & do give a lot more in-depth info. The location of the cemetery used to be in a place called Costenmanville (pre independence from Belgium) now its called Bukavu, Sud-Kivu, Congo, Democratic Republic of (DRC) =)
