Grandview Baptist Church Cemetery

I'm Darrell Johnson, I'm caretaker of Grandview Baptist Church Cemetery at the end of ST John Road.

First let me Thank you for taking the Pictures of the Headstones and posting them on Find A

I do need to ask a favor of you. 2 of the Names you listed are wrong

You have a picture of James and Dorothy Rogers Headstone but you have their Names as James and Dorothy Price. There isn't a James and Dorothy Price in our cemetery.

I have taken a new picture of James and Dorothy Rogers Headstone and posted it along with their names so all I need for you to do is remove your posting of James and Dorothy Price

Thanks for all you do, I know it was just an honest mistake.

take care,

Darrell Johnson

RE: John Church Richards
Oops sorry about that. I just saw John Richards..some of these stones in this cemetery are weathered and hard to read. I will make a memorial for his wife if you would like to repost your grave request for John and I`ll see of i have his picture as well.

RE: Kimberly Jo Brown memorial ##58869444
James, Thank you so much for this. I admit to being very ignorant when it comes to this site, and all I can see for her is her parents. I can't see the grandfathers you mention . . .

RE: John F. Schreck
Hi, I have deleted his second memorial because I agreed with the note that he must be buried as you show, with both names on the marker. I sent you an edit to add a link for his first wife, Lucille Dillon, memorial # 23032140, to John F. Schreck's memorial.

That should make the record clear to all. Cheers, Dick Gates,

RE: Mallie Jane Elliott Sprinkle
Yes, sometimes a bride and a groom will indeed have the same surname (distant cousins or whatever), but in this case, I do not think Mallie was previously married. She is shown as "Miss" and it does not show that she is widowed as it does for James Sprinkle and also others on the same page. Plus Bertha's marriage record does not have a father's name. I am not sure if Virgil was Mallie's son or her nephew. I am sure that Bertha was very close to her grandmother. Mallie and Bertha (and maybe Virgil) undoubtedly were born in grandma's house and grew up there. When Mallie married, Bertha just continued living with grandma.

Mallie Jane Elliott Sprinkle
I received your message. It appears as if Mallie was an unmarried woman when she and James Sprinkle married. The license/certificate shows her as Miss Mallie Elliott in more than once place. Also, the martial status of the bride and groom is reflected in the register entry. James is shown as a widower, as are other brides/grooms on the page who were widowed. And in those cases the woman is shown as Mrs., not Miss. Mallie is shown simply as "of age."

Interestingly, on daughter Bertha's marriage record for the father's name, it shows Ben Williams, guardian. Mallie, of course, is named as her mother.

There is a marriage record for a Virgil Elliott of about the right age. Father's name is blank. Mother's is Ellen Elliott. I don't see that Mallie had a sister named Ellen (although she could have been born after 1880 and out of the household before 1900).

Who could say that genealogy isn't interesting :-)

Stiles photos
James, Thank you for all the nice photos from Howevalley Cemetery. I do hope you can take photos of all those interred at Stiles/Shipley when you are able to go there. It does not appear that anyone has taken any photos there. It looks like 1915 was the last time anyone was interred there and some of the stones date back to the early 1800's! Thanks again James!

RE: Emil Seiffert
I honestly can't tell you where the Seiffert's married in. I am doing the Argersingers' 12 children & all their children to the present generation to the best of my ability. Sometimes families just "come out of the woodwork" for generations due to what I find on Findagrave, etc. The reason I don't remember exactly nwhere they "fit" in is that my husband has had a series of heart attacks since3 last Oct. & I have been VERY busy with that. My own health has not been all that great either. Just to give you an example of why I don't remember exactly where people fit is that my last book was 1900 pages of info with an average of 20 people per page! And, that family was only from 1831!!!! I had a side ways tree instead of the usual perpendicular tree. If I happen to run into any more info on that family, I will send it to you. Since you have so many pictures, may I suggest that you contact & submit them there so everyone can see their folks. Sorry I can't be of more help. Good luck, Carol Frey
