You're welcome. I'm always amazed by the craftsmanship evident in the old stones. These were very talented people.

|Pamela Greywacz||RE: Lucius Hitchcock|
You are welcome. There are Hitchcock's in the cemetery, but not his. The thing is, he could be there but in an unmarked grave. One of the city workers told me there was a yellow fever epidemic in Saint Marys, as referenced in his memorial. There is a mass grave of approximately 2000 people that they buried quickly so others would not spread the disease. No one even took the time to put names with the mass grave. Since he died of yellow fever, I am quite sure he is buried in this mass grave with no names. If you want to maybe just make a comment to that effect, it would probably be the closet thing to a picture. Also, this cemetery has a lot of character. There is a head of the Georgia KKK buried in 1928. There is also a crypt where the two wives of a gentlemen who buried them in glass coffins with their hair that went down to their feet. He wanted to be able to sit, talk and comb their hair while he talked to them.

You're welcome Rosemary. We've had some gorgeous weather so it's been fun to get outside.
|J.J. Matocha||RE: Hitchcock Pics|
You're welcome Rosemary. I understand the importance of this work and I'm happy that I can contribute. I'm not sure if you got my email regarding the Joseph Atwater stone. I was able to dig down far enough to see "Also of Joseph H. Atwater." A few inches deeper, I could make out the word "South." This probably has to do with Joseph H.'s death in South Carolina. Unfortunately I didn't have the equipment to dig any deeper.

No problem Rosemary. Hopefully I'll be getting over to Hillside soon.
|E Bristol||RE: Old Rossman Ground|
Rosemary, you are very welcome. I also have a picture of most of the cemetery posted, however it has not been approved yet so not everyone can see it. Unless you've been there the cemetery is very hard to find. Fite Rossman is my 5th great grandfather through his son Peter and his daughter Elizabeth. Are you at all related. Yesterday we had a little ceremony for Fite with myself and several other Rossmans from Colorado and Maryland. It was very nice
|J.J. Matocha||RE: Bristol and Atwater - Hillside|
Hi Rosemary, I'm sorry I haven't gotten back to you on this. The weather turned unpleasant so I shut down for the season. Things are beginning to turn for the better so I hope I can find this out soon.
|Denise Petersen||RE: Wolf|
