|Penny Harris||RE: Ronald Webb|
Searched both an existing burial record (inclusive up to 1980), and also spent past few years transcribing all grave markers in the Mt Tabor cemetery. You may be right as far as him not having a proper burial record or gravestone. In my search of family history records for immediate family, I was told by the bureau of vital statistics that up until the 1980s, and still occasionally today, births and deaths of children up to school age we're not reported with any consistency. There are always slightly sunken unmarked graves in every cemetery I've been to. Some can clearly be identified as infant or small child by size of grave. Another "tradition" I find around here is that the cemeteries would "donate" space around the edge of the cemetery for families who could not afford to buy a plot to bury their children. Others would have a designated "children" section divided up into little spaces, but without any markers. Mt Tabor does not appear to have done either, but he could be buried in one of the unmarked spaces, or at home as some families, including my own, did with small children.

You're very welcome. Happy to help.
As for obituaries, my online access for the St. Petersburg Times (now the Tampa Bay Times) only goes back to 1987. I see Floyd & Rose passed earlier than that. You might try the Pinellas County RootsWeb list:
|Steph||RE: Christian Bashar|
Hi there! I am related to Christian and Barbara's son, Louis, by marriage (Louis married Margaret Saretta Crawford in Lucas County, Iowa…Maggie was my husband's great grandfather's sister). I have been working on family history with a cousin (she descends from Louis and Maggie's adopted daughter, Lota)…..we would be very interested in Christian and Barbara's obituaries and photos of the graves…and any others you might have! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I wish I could help you more with your research about Anna Wiggins Palmer Bashar or her daughter, Emma. I have just started to research this family though so I only have what I have found on the wvgenweb.org website and the wvculture.org website. Have you tried the surrounding counties in WV or Ohio for records?? I do know that there are several spellings for the name Bashar.
Thanks for your help!

Inglewood was real quick on this one. Still not sure why the stone was buried, but it has been raised & photos added. Stone looks great !
|Don Green||RE: Inglewood Park Cemetery|
You're very welcome for the photos, Zach. In some parts of the cemetery they resod and forget to cut out some of the stones. In this particular plot, La Ramada, the flat markers do tend to slowly sink. Many are quite a few inches below the surrounding grass now. I'm sure this is what happened to Carrie's stone. We'll see what it looks like when I can get a photo. I did see Bertha's 11 year discrepancy ! I guess if you're going to shave a few years you might as well go big !
Glad I could help out !
|B.J. Waters||RE: Caldabaughs|
Thanks for your kind words, but I'm afraid that will probably never happen. I've tried several times. Just has a hard heart, I guess.
I believe in compassion and forgiveness. When neither is extended to me, I simply move on. You just can't change people. They have to want to change.
Do you see why I thought it would be better to delete my messages? I knew he would read them and be offended and I was right. I'll say no more on the subject, lest he fire off more hurtful words.
|B.J. Waters||RE: August and Virginia Cook Serig|
Oh that is so cool. They really don't want us to add the obits in the photo section, but as long as no one complains about it, I don't see why they can't stay there. Adds history.
|Don Green||RE: Caldabaughs|
You're welcome for info. Also, yes, Bertha Stockley is buried with Albert. Expect to see them both on same marker.
Maybe next time, you can just send me your message as to what you want done. I don't insist on an official "Photo Request" because I'm not into the numbers game.
See, I knew he would take it the wrong way. He is easily offended and I have tried many times to make peace with him. Oh well. I'm sure you will be happy with his photographs. Like I said, he is very good and looks around the area for same surnames, etc.
If calling him excellent is what he considers "trashing", well sheesh, what can I say?
Maybe now that BJ is through trashing me ..... I can get a word in. Have locations on your requests. Wanted to let you know, Inglewood also indicated they have a Godfrey Charles Caldabaugh, interred 9/19/1947, in another section of the cemetery, if he is of interest. Carrie Hough is buried near her first husband, Thomas Fish, who has a memorial already. Hope to get up to cemetery sometime next week.
