Hodsdens buried in Mount Calvary
I have been doing research for an auxiliary family of Joshua and Nancy Hunter Hodsden, both buried in Mount Calvary/Mount Olive, Portsmouth, Virginia. The dates of births and deaths of the two above have me puzzled. Census records have them being born 13-20 years before the dates listed on U.S., Find a Grave. Are these dates on tombstones or just calculated by family info? Their son, John could not have been born in 1877 if his parents were born in the years listed on Find a Grave.

Please note I'm in the process of adding pictures to memorials you manage at Lincoln Cemt. Pictures were provided to me by Gloria Oldfield. I have also provided edits, ie, Plot locations. Please review and update as you see fit.

Thank you,

George L. Jordan - Duplicate
I saw that you had a duplicate of George L. Jordan in Union Missionary Baptist, was wondering if you would delete it. I am hoping to get out to this site and taking pictures to update this record.

I would also like more information on the preservation you are doing in the other cemetery you mentioned.
