Bio Photo In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

John McCrae

RE: Elma Newman Marshall #162939825

I added Elma's obituary and as it turns out, her husband Richard died a month later so I added his as well. Hope it helps...

Elma Newman Marshall #162939825
Regarding your request for Elma Marshall- I transcribed the Benshoff Hill Cemetery back in 2006. Another group also transcribed it a few years earlier but not as complete. I checked my files and theirs but Elma was not listed.

Benshoff Hill unfortunately happens to be one of the worst cemeteries in the area when it comes to missing and illegible headstones. I've been working on a project for the last couple of years trying to identify people buried there in unmarked graves. The cemetery does have an office, but the new owners state that their records only go back to the 1950's.

The worst group of people to suffer are the local African-Americans. The cemetery is situated a few miles from a neighborhood that has been primarily African-American since the 1920's and this group, most of whom are buried in a few clusters within the cemetery, has a bad reputation for not having headstones.

I've been working hard at obtaining death certificates and obituaries and also researching many of the larger families that used that cemetery so I can find as many people as possible to try and identify family buried there without markers. I've made a lot of progress. I haven't come across any Marshall's until your post, so that will be another name I'll have to keep an eye out for.

I've been lucky enough to have my family here in PA since before the Revolution so I try my best to help others that don't have the time or means to make it back here who have moved away, etc.

Now that I know Elma is there in an unmarked grave I'm going to get her obituary and so I have additional documentation to prove she is there for my files. If you want a copy I'll post it on her memorial so you'll have it. This gives me a line on other family to check on who may be buried there as well.

If you need anything from this area don't hesitate to ask. Instead of just clicking on the "couldn't locate" button I figured I'd give you a little background.

Robinson and Ellerbe Cemeteries
On the cemetery photo on Find A Grave the first photo is Ellerbe Cemetery and the second photo is Robinson Cemetery. Take a look and you will see they are two different cemeteries.

Robinson Cemetery
For some unknown to me reason the Robinson and Ellerbe Cemeteries have been combined. They are listed as Robinson-Ellerbe Cemetery. I entered both those cemeteries and the graves and they are separate cemeteries. The directions on Find A Grave are for the Robinson Cemetery. The Ellerbe Cemetery is on the left as you turn right off Highway 145 to go to the Robinson Cemetery which is just past Elizabeth Church. I guess somebody just wanted to be smarter than they really are. I don't know which graves or which right now but when I have time I will take a look at it. I don't think people should be able to have the cemeteries combined if they did not enter them.

You're welcome. We went there to take photos of my family, and knew that the cemetery needed a lot of photos, so we did the whole thing. Quite an experience...hard to had rained and we slid off the dirt road into a ditch but were able to get out...lots of poison ivy in the cemetery...but it was worth it!!!
