RE: Jordon Cemetery
Martha, I don't know if you got a partial message. The computer suddenly left the site My condolences, in any case. I'm sorry to hear about your father-in-law. My ancestors are four Olveys, probably buried together; John W., Hannah, Isaac and William. If there is any possibility, I would greatly appreciate the pictures. Thank you very much for even trying.

Jordon Cemetery
Martha, I see you have taken pictures of two memorials in the Jordon Cemetery and I'm getting the impression those are the only stones left in the cemetery? Or is it that it's inaccessible due to being on private property? I ask because four of my ancestors are supposed to be buried there and I'd love pictures if their stones exist.

Thank you for your contributions to the Find A Grave web site.

Thanks Martha
I just wanted to thank you for your photos of two graves in the Jordon Cemetery, Economy, Wayne, Indiana. I believe they are my g.g.g.grandparents William and Mary (McLelland) Jordan. I am very curious as to why you decided to take photos of only these two graves in that cemetery. Are you related? They monuments just look like a stacked up bunch of pieces. What a find! I would be very interested in a higher resolution of those pics.

I believe there is a good chance that I am related to all of those Jordans in that cemetary.

Thanks again,

Bill

Eli Harris headstone
Hi Martha - Was Eli's headstone down too? It was over by the woods on the far right (when looking at the cemetery from the road) when I was there about ten years ago. It's a military headstone. Also, did you see a stone for Nancy Harris Gray? I'm trying desperately to locate her. I found out recently that she could be in the cemetery.

I once had a photo of Eli Harris' headstone but have since lost it. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. All family stones were standing when I was there before, except Jane Dunbar Harris. Sherry H.

Wayman Burial Ground
Hello Martha,

It is amazing, but on the Henry County, IN GenWebsite, I found 3 photos of the only remains of tombstones for this cemetery.

After sending an email to the county coordinator, I am asking if there are any DAR/SAR chapters that might want to apply for a new marker for Harmon Wayman.

Perhaps that is something that can be done renovate this cemetery. I never thought I would find this ancestor's resting place.

Right now I am making "Heritage Albums" for all of my grandchildren, great nieces and nephews and young cousins - where I do not have a photo of the ancestor, I am using tombstone/cemetery photos, so finding ANYTHING is amazing.

THANK YOU so much - IF it turns out that the area can be photographed, you can submit it to the Cemetery Page and add a description and directions for the Wayman Burial Grounds and I would love that.

Wayman Burial Ground
Hello Martha,

Sorry about the first message, I hit "send" before I meant to!

I did find a description of the cemetery and three photos of the crumbled stones found there.

I think I will withdraw my request, it seems there is nothing there to find and I do not want anyone injuried (lost, bee stings, snake bite, poison ivy) trying to find what simply seems not to be there.

Attached are the bits of information I did find. Thank you for your kind offer, but this seems unlikely to be found.

Wayman, Moses Jr. 8-2-1815 9-17-1834, 19y S of Moses and Ruth Wayman
Wayman, William B. 1844 9y S of Milton and Bridgett Wayman
Foot Stones: M.W & H. W. (Probably Hermans) , -----N Jr. rest of stone missing.


I did not locate a stone for Herman Wayman, but the foot stone with H. W. on it was located in the middle part of the cemetery where there are several large field stones laying on the high part of the grounds, one is a large marble stone. I would guess that there are several more stones in this burial ground, it is so over grown and some stones are buried under tree roots. It has been abandoned for many years and is back in a woods. The farmer who lives there told me that some of the stones were used to mark the grave of a pony that died years ago, we couldn't find those.
Some dates were given to me by family descendants to fill in missing dates on some of the stones.

I don't think you would need permission, because you are not doing anything harmful to the stone, just rubbing on the aluminum foil. This is by far the least invasive way to bring out the inscription on a weathered stone.
