RE: Photo
I have done so. I thought only the manager of the memorial could do so. Thanks again.

RE: parents identity
Sorry, I made a mistake. I should have posted the photo on the memorial for Alexander Lorenzo Bazemore and Janie Elizabeth Powell Bazemore. Please remove the photo. I will ask to have it added to the proper memorial. Thanks for catching this.
Alexander James was the uncle of Alexander Lorenzo.

RE: Marion William
When we were searching (years ago) with the help of one of the managers at Bonaventure, he checked all around the perpetual care area with a probe looking for unmarked graves. He found in front and behind the monument what he "figured" was some sort of base for the monument.

Evidently, what he found was the Colonel's grave in front (between the wives) and Marion Williams in the rear. I wish we would have known differently.

As I said before, I don't understand why my great grandfather, John Holbrook, Jr., wasn't buried in that section. From what we always understood from Mrs. Marguerite Howe, only the Colonel, his wives and children (with spouses) were to be buried in the original section.

That's interesting to know about Ida Holbrook being buried in her wedding gown. Do you know anything further about her?

Also, if you ever come across any pictures of my great grandfather, I would love to see them. OR any of Marion and the children. My grandmother said my great grandfather had a portrait of his father and that they looked alike.

I appreciate all the info you have supplied through the years.

I'm surprised they buried someone on top of another. I know it is the custom in England, because my mother's family is from Liverpool. Her mother, 8 yr old brother, and 2 grandmothers are all buried in the same plot. They have a slab with all the names and dates.

RE: Marion William
Marion Virginia is buried to the right of her husband. There is a headstone there. Hers and his second wife, Ida Holbrook's, stones match. They are buried on either side of him.

RE: Marion William
Joan, Oh my goodness! The unmarked coffin BELOW your cousin William MUST be Marion William "Joy"! It makes sense. The office records had him as being buried in the lot just not WHERE. He was the youngest child of John H. & Marion. He was married at the time of his death to a Catherine Pate. I have no further information on her. I think you have just solved a years old mystery for me! I have searched and searched trying to find out WHERE Joy was buried. His name, Marion William, came from the 2 babies, Eugene Marion and William Nicholson, that died.

I do not know WHY my great grandfather, John H. Jr., and his wife Jessie were buried out in the front area. My grandmother can only assume its because there wouldn't have been room for their son, my grandfather, John H. III to be buried with them. Since he was divorced and lived at home with his parents I guess his mother was concerned about that.

RE: Marion William

RE: Marion William
I got the dates from the records in the Bonaventure office. He doesn't have a tombstone and we are not sure exactly where in the lot he is buried. According to the newspaper obituary Marion William "Joy" was visiting with my great grandfather, John Holbrook Jr, in Claxton at the time of his death. Since he probably handled the arrangements I believe (without proof) that Joy is buried somewhere in the front area. I was told (at the office) that vaults were not required at the time of Joy's death so when they searched the grounds for me they couldn't find evidence of the grave.
