I have requested a photo of the tombstone at Spring Dale Will let you know when I find out.
Thanks for the heads up.

It is okay to use the photo. I'm just sorry it isn't a better shot. I'll try to get a better photo the next time I'm out at Naples. -Jan

|Kevin Finch||RE: Linnie Norvell Adams|
You are very welcome.
Here it come. Dont know if you want to change the name on her memorial.
|Kevin Finch||lillian adams|
Could her name be Linnie Adams. The cemetery does not have a record of Lillian Adams. But Linnie has same birth and death dates.

Alrighty, I did a bit more research and have some specific answers, and one additional question. The garden at the West home on the corner of High Street and Mill Street was first used as a burial spot with the death of West's wife, Sarah Browne West. I do not see a memorial for his wife, so you might want to create one. Then, in January 1827, the good friend of William Edward West (son of Edward and an artist) and surrogate son to Edward West (silversmith and inventor), artist Asa Park, was also buried in the garden. When Edward West died (also in 1827), he was also buried in the garden. The three graves remained in this garden until 1834, when Edward's heirs sold the property and had their graves and markers moved to "the Presbyterian Churchyard" in Lexington. When this cemetery closed in 1899, all graves within the cemetery were moved to the Lexington Cemetery. So, you have the grave in the right location afterall! However, there is no mention in these records regarding whether the headstones made the journey from the Presbyterian churchyard to Lexington Cemetery. I also do not whether the burial records were maintained separately with this move. I've already created a memorial for Asa Park, and I will go ahead and move him to the records for Lexington Cemetery with this information added to the biography. Do you know if the cemetery has plot locations for these three on file? ~Evey

Hello, I was wondering where you found the information that Edward West was buried in this cemetery. The information I have is that Edward, his wife, and a family friend were all buried in the garden of his house on High Street, and that they were moved at a later time to the cemetery at "the Presbyterian Church in Lexington"... Is this cemetery next to a Presbyterian Church?
