Most of my family is buried in Tennessee and Mississippi. I live several hours away, so I don't get to visit their graves often. That's why I appreciate this site.|
I am happy to take pictures of loved ones and family sites.

|Brenda Gray Nipp||RE: Elias Crowder King|
I will go back and check for a marker for Elias King, I believe there was a small one with the initials of two people.

I can't believe I have to ask...but did I ever reply to your kind message?? It's been a very hectic, crazy couple of months and I'm not sure I did!

I could not find a headstone for Elias King in plot # 11. According to cemetery records the following people are in this plot:
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

|HomesickOkie||Catherine Washignton Lewis Photo Request|
I went to St. George's parish and made some inquiries. It is very probable that Catherine Washington Lewis is buried here, but her headstone has been lost to time. Fielding Lewis was a vestryman of the church, so it is unlikely that she would be interred elsewhere. I found a document on usgwarchives.net that states that in its early days the churchyard extended its fence beyond its boundaries, extending into the street. In 1772 the city asked the church to remedy this with the result that there are many graves under the sidewalk and street today. In fact, it is widely believed that Fielding Lewis and three of his sons are buried under the steps leading into the church. The church also suffered a fire in 1854 and endured artillery shellfire during the battle of Fredericksburg in 1862, so it follows that the churchyard would have sustained damage as well. A cemetery guild was formed in 1890 with the purpose of documenting known burials and cleaning up the churchyard. Her name is not listed in the known burials, but that could be because her stone was missing or unreadable by 1890. There are also 35 known burials within the current churchyard that have no headstone. If you'd like, I can go and photograph the area.

You're very welcome. I'm glad I could help.
|Karat57||Col. John Lewis|
I'm very glad to hear how pleased you are with the photos I posted...I wish I could say I'd specifically claimed your request, but I'd only recently discovered my family connection to the Colonel and the kind creator of his memorial transferred it to me so I thought I'd add what I had to it. So, it was actually kind of a happy accident that the two coincided! 😄
I'd read that some of the original burials had been relocated but I didn't know what the destinations for them were, so thank you for that information! I checked both of the F.A.G. Pages for the two cemeteries, but had no luck locating John in either one, unfortunately. It seems his final resting place will remain a mystery, at least for now.
The website you mentioned was new to me and I thoroughly enjoyed looking it over! We're in the process of selling a house and moving the contents out, but i hope to look it over some more and continue my research on the Lewis' (& Warners) as soon as I'm able.
If you don't mind, I would LOVE to have the Lewis information from your book! If you'd like, you can reach me through the 'edit' link on John's memorial and send along your email address and I'll reply via mine as well. Probably much simpler that way and eliminates this 3rd party correspondence.
Thank you very much for your kind letters and I look forward to hearing from you, cousin!

|David Rachow||RE: Thomas and Edna Mae Sherman|
You are more than welcome. I wish I could have found the other Thomas for you. There are some other Shermans in the same area of the cemetery that appear to be related to Thomas and Edna Mae. Next time I am out there, I will take some photos for you.
Take Care, and God Bless
|David Rachow||Thomas Sherman 1936-1983|
We just went out to Norick Chapel and took the photos of Thomas and Edna Sherman's head stones. I am sorry, but we could find no marker for the other Thomas (1936-1983).
|Rebekah McAleese||RE: Cave Springs Cemetery|
I am not sure if this is a same cemetery, but I found this description for a location.
OLD CAVE SPRINGS CEMETERY
1st Baptist Church
322 S. Main St.
Cave Springs, AR 72718
Benton County, Arkansas
This small cemetery is located on the grounds of the First Baptist Church of Cave Springs, Arkansas. There are approximately 40 stones here, including various unmarked stones. The cemetery and church can be found directly on Highway 264 East in Cave Springs. If you've found the church, you've found the cemetery. The cemetery is plainly visible from the highway. At present, the church is situated across the street from a store called Stuff Mart. The cemetery lawn was neatly mowed. Some stones were rather weather-beaten and damaged. Some stones were flat against the ground, almost grown into the lawn. However, a number of other stones were well cared for and readable.
Please keep me posted, I will see if I can find any other cemeteries with that name.
