We're active family historians, members of the Eastern Washington Genealogical Society (EWGS) and Clark County Genealogical Society (CCGS). We live near Cheney, WA, and like to take photos of headstones and cemeteries for others. Family names I'm researching include: Heltsley, Ruddell, Willis, Pendley,Hester, Shutt, Mangrum, Young, plus many others. My husband, Tony's family names are: Durnford, Birch, Griffinhoofe, Fitch, Brabazon, Shanks, Ammerman, etc.
Copyright info: You have my permission to use my photos in your family tree for personal use. Please do attribute me as the author. Here is some suggested wording: "from Find A Grave site, posted by Janette & Tony Birch, #12345678" (for example).
Harriet Throckmorton Harriet Throckmorton has 2 memorials, both with the same FindAGrave photo that you posted. One Harriet Throckmorton 71716471 is listed as buried in St Johns Cemetery (which I now manage) and the other Harriet Throckmorton 91874414 is listed as buried in Spangle Cemetery. She is my Great-grandmother, and I would like to verify which cemetery she is buried in.
Great-Grandpa Throckmorton 71716440 has the same photo and is buried in St Johns. His second wife, Emily Throckmorton 71716454 is buried in St Johns, also with one of your photos. I hope you live close enough to revisit these cemeteries & verify which cemetery is correct. Thank you!
RE: Exeter Higher Cemetery I passed Fine Memorials last Thursday, and I couldn't remember if they were the Memorial Masons that you were dealing with, and I then wondered if you'd heard about a completion date. Yes, ... I'm probably too eager!
RE: Exeter Higher Cemetery Just checked the card index, it's actually Section ZN plot #36. Although I don't have a map showing the layout of that section, the grave should be easy enough to find if it has a memorial.
RE: New Cypress Cemetery There are no Heltsley's in either Vol 1 or Vol 2 of the McLean Co Cemeteries. I have put 7 or 8 into find a grave in the last year, so I know there are Heltlsey's in the county. If I can find out who takes care of the Cemetery I will let you know, or if you find out anything let me know and I will go back and hunt it for you. He could be one of the unreadable ones or he could not have a stone.
RE: New Cypress Cemetery I walked and photographed the cemetery last year. There are several stones that you can not read. The Cemetery was recorded in July 1977 and published into McLean County Cemeteries Volume 2. There is not a Richard Heltsley in the book. If you can get in contact with the Church and find out where he is buried I will go back and look for his stone for you. I made a photo of a sign in the cemetery, I do not know if it has a name of the caretaker or not. Do you have his death certificate that would state he was buried there? The Church should have a platt of the cemetery that should show if he has a stone or not, it is just a matter of finding out who to ask.
