I used to visit Ray's house to see his son as a teenager. Ray had a basket of German Lugers and P38s that he brought back from WW2. The basket was in his den...we probably wore out the firing pins dry firing them.
|Regina Harper Brane Hiple||William B Scott|
Several from the LaFontaine area are plotting the Old Lafontaine Cemetery and identifying and locating 1812 and Civil War Veterans. William B Scott is located in the Old LaFontaine Cemetery.
There are 3 cemeteries located on the south side of 1050 S. The Ashland Graveyard is on the East end, Old LaFontaine in the middle and Harper Cemetery on the west end. The Ashland Graveyard and the Old Lafontaine have been combined for many years. However, the Harper Cemetery is maintained by itself. You may have other find a grave postings that have the wrong cemetery listed. Please contact me for more information.

Sorry, the memorial number for Joshua (Josiah) Chapin is 46858688.
|Quinn Densley||Joshua Chapin|
Thanks for putting up this memorial for my 4th great-grandfather. I believe that the name on the memorial is incorrect. It should be Josiah Chapin, not Joshua Chapin. If you look closely at the picture of the headstone, you can see that the name is Josiah. Can you please link Josiah to his son, Robert Park Chapin, Sr. (146057178)?

|Pam Joiner||RE: Duplicate memorials|
I have removed all of the memorials I listed on Curlew Pioneer Cemetery. I found out later that there are two names of the cemetery. I still have all the pictures I took of all the graves, so if I deleted one that needs a pic, I'll be glad to put it on there.
I am sorry this happened, but there should be a like to the two names of the cemeteries...
|Ruth Young Crowson||Death of Robert S. Crowson|
Robert S. Crowson, b.1848 NC d. FL, buried Rousseau Cemetery, Clearwater, Pinellas Co., FL. Death date in family Bible was 1917 but may have been added years afterward. Some family members remembered it as 1913.
SixDogTeam notes that among those buried in that cemetery were Kerseys. The Kerseys intermarried with Hackneys and Simpsons. Would like to hear from anyone who is researching these families.
Thank you, bnc2k@Austin.rr.com
|Cynthia Lommel||RE: Lommel|
Thank you! It appears the maker was placed by the Army. My father was not sure if it had ever gotten done. Dad was in the service when my grandfather dies and was not able to follow up on it. Now if I could find my grandmother's (Chatherine Taylor Lommel) grave that would be great. She is also buried at Greendale Cemetery. I submitted a request for a photo but I'm not familiar with the process. I know that both of her parents are buried there so I'm assuming she would be near them.
I live on the west coast and am not able to travel much so going and finding it myself is not likely at this time.
Thank you again for you help.
