RE: Emma Houck
Glad to help! Yes, I already took photos of all the headstones in Pineview Memorial and Pisgah. It takes much longer to upload them all then actually taking them! Woodlawn is the last I have of these large cemeteries.

RE: Emma Houck
The death date is correct. The death certificate I am referring to is actually her daughter's that mentions her (
There is no image, because I tried to browse the microfilm 2116429 on familysearch, but wasn't successful. You would have to go to a familysearch center and order the microfilm to see the actual certificate.

It's no problem to get the date for you, really. I am in the process of photographing the entire cemetery right now. I also have Paulk's books, he lives in Salem, FL close to me (I live in Steinhatchee about 1/2 mile from Emma's husband John's grave - I have a picture of his stone, too lol)

Ok, I'm just going to go look at the stone better. Florida death record 'estimates' birth at 1835-36, finding an Illinois birth or marriage record proved elusive, trying to figure out her father in Illinois is very difficult as there were a 'ton' of Stanley's in the 1830-1840 census records.

I can actually just go back to Woodlawn Cemetery and clean the stone up a little - I know where it is. But it's about 35 miles away from me, so that will take a bit - I'll get back to you!

I've attached another picture of Emma's Stone around what looks like a 3 to me. Like I said, I'm gonna do some record searching to try and verify.

Hi Mr. Riley, I actually do have another picture of the stone and I'm trying to find it. I'm also doing a little research to try and find where she was born (some kind of documentation) when and if we still have trouble reading the birth year.

Yes, that would be fine. I just wanted to get the info out there and I put info in "transcription" a lot of times, because if the manager of the memorial never answers, at least the info gets written in the memorial after the time-out.

Highly possible...those out of town deaths are usually the ones that are wrong.

Appreciate all you do up there!!! Such a service to Buncombe and Madison counties!!
