|Candy||Sanders Grove Family Cemetery|
Hey, Jim! How goes the battle?
Your note to Lisa Best in reply to her question as to the location of the Sanders Grove Plantation Cemetery prompted Lisa to get in touch with me. Here is my reply to her inquiry as to the exact location of that cemetery:
"Hi, Lisa, and thank you for your time trying to locate the cemetery! My cousin lives in Harnett County in the ancestral home known as Lebanon, a home of the Smith Family descended from John Smith and Elizabeth Whitfield. My cousin has delved deeply into the lines from the original John Smith and that extends to the Sanders family from Hardy Sanders grandson, Ransom Sanders, son of Hardy's son Reuben Sanders. Ransom's daughter Sarah Elizabeth "Bettie" Sanders married Dr. Farquhard Campbell Smith, Jr. he born on Lebanon Plantation.
Phew! All of that is by way of saying that I don't know exactly where the burials are but I do know that the family was buried on their plantation which was located in Sanders Grove at the site of the plantation home per my cousin. The original Sanders Grove plantation was established by Hardy Sanders father, James Sanders (1713 - 1764) who was the original Sanders to come to North Carolina, he from Virginia. Hardy inherited the plantation. I doubt that there are grave markers extant for the family buried there.
My cousin was friends with Elizabeth Ross who surveyed and compiled lista and burials of so many of the cemeteries in the Johnson County area. He and she agreed that the family was buried on home grounds. And I wish I knew exactly where the plantation home had been.
Hardy's brother John Sanders established Pleasant Grove plantation in Johnston County and Hardy's other brother Brittain moved over to Wake County.
Again, thank you for your efforts, Lisa. Would that we knew the exact location of the burials.
Hope all goes well with you, Jim, along the genealogy trail!

We should be getting their pictures on Thursday and will post them soon after. The cemetery relaxed the rules and they now just require a phone call 1-928-445-1881 to authorize the photo. I don't think they wanted 40 e-mails. We just needed to break the ice with them.

WE HAVE THE OK TO TAKE THE GRAVESTONE PICTURES OF YOUR ANCESTORS AND WILL DO THAT THIS WEEK. IF YOU HAVE ANY MORE IN THIS CEMETERY PLEASE SEND YOUR AUTHORIZATION TO email@example.com (I OMITTED THE 6 IN MY INITIAL E-MAIL)
|Lisa Best||Sanders Grove Plantation Cemetery|
Do you have any info for this cemetery? I have looked through every cemetery survey for Johnston County and can find no listing for this cemetery.
|Bill Bates||RE: Joan Waite|
My pleasure, Jim.
Have an awesome day, Bill
|Joseph Mann||RE: Mohr Family Tomb|
There is no mistake. There were only two names listed on the grave, Marie and Charles Gerard, although there are 12 people listed as interred there. Below is a list of all those at the gravesite:
First Name Middle Name Last Name Suffix Age Date of Burial
Michael Wm Mohr 18 12/01/1888
Henry Mohr 79 12/12/1894
Widow Hy Mohr 76 06/27/1906
Rose Mercer 49 04/06/1968
Jacob J. Gitz 81 03/01/1946
Margaret Gietz 87 01/10/1954
Child Jacob Gietz 05/09/1893
Marie Gerard 68 03/29/1976
Charles Cefaly Gerard 58 02/26/1966
Anna Florence Geitz 2mo 05/10/1894
Annie Mohr Dousseau 58 06/30/1931
Henri Doisseau 69 03/31/1938
It is not uncommon that names are not on these gravesites. I hope this answered your question.

You have a child listed that was born before Ruth was born. I think the child maybe hooked to the wrong parents.
|Jerry||Ervon & Helen Gersmehl|
Re: Your photo request for Ervon. The graver marker in the listed lot is for "Erwin Gersmehl." I have added a photo.
Helen Gersmenhl is buried in Lakeview Cenetery and a photo of her tombstone is already posted there.

|JTBC||RE: Isabel (UMN) Barber|
It's my pleasure to be able to find Isabel's headstone. My wife and I were Las Vegas NM for the night and were able to spend some time exploring. I was fortunate to find Isabel and two others just by wandering through the cemetary. There is no directory or office there.
Unfortunately I didn't notice any other Barber sites nearby.

Glad to help! I wish the picture was better, but the stone is very worn. It is a little better in person when you can feel with your fingers.
