Please do not add photos to Find A Grave that you have acquired from another source. Photos fall under copyright protection laws, even photographs used in obituaries. In general, if you did not take the photo yourself, you should not post it. The only exceptions to this are photos that are old enough to have fallen into the public domain and photos for which you have received written consent from the copyright holder.

I have not forgotten, I am still working on it.
The past couple of weeks have been crazy.

RE: Richard F Wasser
You're welcome. They didn't come out as nicely as I wanted. Even though it was sunny the lighting made the pictures come out oddly dark.

RE: Edith Clark Palm
According to the information I have (I am not sure if the dates on the paperwork is the DOD or DOB, but I think it is the DOD).
Edith : 8-13-92
George: 4-29-71

Tomorrow when I am at the cemetery I will check with the office and see if they have any other infomation. I do not know how much infomation I will be able to get, but hopefully they will be able to clear up the question of the dates and give me the DOB.

RE: Edith Clark Palm
According to the paperwork I got from the cemetery she is. The photo was taken of the site where she and her husband are buried. The first time I tried to locate her I walked the entire section and could not find any marker. After checking with the cemetery office again, I was given what is called a block card and it shows the location of the her grave and the surrounding graves, with names, and then I was able to locate where she and her husband are buried and took a photo of that site.

They are located in:
Section 55, Block 4, Lot 3, Space 10 and either space 11 or 12.

I would be happy to go back and take a wider exposure of the site and the surrounding graves if you would like. I will be there again the coming weekend. Just let me know. I am happy to do it.

RE: Sarah Jane Fales
With them being buried together (I didn't realize that) I'm starting to wonder if this (by the dates on the headstone) is Sophia Jane Davis!? The inscription on the headstone you posted (Thank You!) looks like it says "wife of A Perry Sr."? Amos M Perry (my 4th great grandfather) and Sophia are noted in a census from 1860 living in the Schul household, both noted as not able to read or write; Amos R Sr. and older brother Ben are also in the home. On that census, Amos M Perry is noted as being from NC, Ben's death certificate lists his father's birthplace as France. I believe Amos M and Sophia had a son named James A (though there is contradicting info out there). In the 1910 census James lists his parents as being from NC, but in 1930 it states they are from Scotland. But there is a huge age jump for James and his wife Melissa from once census to another, so i'm not sure if it's the same couple or not. [I'm finding multiple marriage records for a James Perry married to a Melissa, but they have different marriage dates and DOBs.] If it is, why wasn't James living with Amos and his family in the 1860 census. Confusing! I have found a Sophia J Davis in 1850 (Cumberland Co.) living in a house where the 'head' is not old enough to be her parents, but two other individuals are old enough to be her grandparents. I'm currently researching this side of the family and will let you know; but so far... i'm pretty confused until I can find some concrete documentation and make sense of it.

Sarah Jane Perry

Sarah Jane Fales was marred to Amos Perry Jr. on Nov. 8, 1879 in Masonboro, New Hanover County, NC
Amos Perry Jr was the son of Amos Perry Sr and Sarah Jane Davis 1838-1905 I have also seen Amos Perry Sr. wife listed as Sophia. I am still looking for Both Amos Perry's

Hope this helps
