Jones family
Hi - I see that you have created a number of memorials for various members of the James & Elizabeth (Teach) Jones family and I wonder if you are a descendant? I am Zora Rose (Jones) Blair's great-great granddaughter. If you are related, would you like to exchange information? I have been doing research for 30+ years and am a genealogy librarian at The Genealogy Center of the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne.

Could you please "copy" your photo of the stone and place the copy on the memorial page for her husband who also appears on the stone:

Union Cmetery Photo
Hello Laramie,

I am asking your permission to use your photo of the Union Cemetery Photo on the Ancestry Family Tree pages for my relatives that are buried in Union Cemetery. Some do not have tombstone photos while others do. I would give you credit as Union Cemetery Photo was taken by Find A Grave Photographer Laramie Harness Jr with your Find A Grave Number listed.

I have been working on my dozen family trees for over 40 years and I have been a member of Find A Grave for over six years and for many years.

Thank you for all you do to help others in their Family Tree searches for information an photos of their Family Tree members.

RE: George Parker, Jr.
I had a chance to go to the county historical society. They have nothing in their collection of obits (most from The Press of A.C.) and I wasn't able to find anything in the EHC "The NEWS". Unfortunately, our collection is missing an issue during the second week after George's death. I checked all the way to February 1946 with no luck.

Was he one of the New Gretna or Parkertown Parkers? If so, they may have something in the Tuckerton Museum.

George Parker, Jr.
As Dennis said below, he took the photograph of the headstone in what is the "Poor Cemetery Section" aka "Potter's Field" of Egg Harbor City Cemetery. The headstone/grave is located between the western-most cemetery road and the woods, between the second "east/west" road and the Civil War Monument. The main problem is that there is no map of this section of the cemetery to use in locating rows and grave numbers. In fact, the City Clerk's Office does not have records of more than 80+ percent of the interments in this section. A map was being started, but unfortunately the person passed away. Since this is a fairly large stone, and there are very few in this section, it should be easy to find.

Dennis and I have been working to bring the Clerk's interment book up-to-date, but it is a long and tedious job of recording the Clerk's records, comparing them to the FindAGrave entries which began with those with headstones and then verifying with photographs of the lots. Since the summer of 2013 we have been able to "verify" only the first 3 blocks of the old section of the cemetery due to incomplete records, poor spelling and changes in designation of grave and lot numbers.

I will be at the Roundhouse Museum Saturday and see if I can locate an obituary in the newspaper records there.
