RE: crown hill reqest
Yes, go ahead and post the photo with a note indicating that it is believed he is buried beside his mother in an unmarked grave.

Thanks for the response. I am not a relative, but am involved in cemetery restoration in Cambridge City, Indiana, where he has family. Part of our efforts involve writing stories about the pioneers buried in our historic cemetery. That is how I came to make the photo request.

Thanks for all you do!

RE: qustion
I don't know which one. I saw there are two. Here is the services info from her obit:


Thank you for your efforts but I am afraid I have no more information than what her obituary provided. I think I found the funeral home. I sent them an email to see if they could give me more information on where she is located. When/if I hear back I will pass on the information.

RE: qustion
Ross is her maiden name and Burnett is her married name. I would think that her headstone would be Burnett. I am not sure where she would be located in the cemetery. I checked online and could not find a caretakers office number.

RE: Jacob wood
Hi David,
I first and foremost want to thank you for taking your time out to look for graves. Especially in such a Big National Cemetery. I'm sure Crown Hill is huge, to say the least. I did receive your email ...In regards to you not able to locate John Wood's plot. I can not prove the link, but believe this JOHN WOOD may be the wife of Catherine (Short) Wood. The photo you have posted on Find A Grave. Catherine (Short) and John Wood had a son Marion Samuel Wood. Catherine (mom) and Marion (son) shares a stone. This leads me to believe John Wood (dad) must be close by. FYI...Yes, you did click remove request.
Now about Jacob S. Wood, he is possibly the brother to the above John Wood. However, I have no proof. I believe Jacob was married twice. The first wife was Philena Wood and the second wife was Dicy Lunsford. I have no idea if Jacob had any children with either of these women.
The WOOD brothers all came from Ohio. There names were as follows:
1) Nicholas Wood born approx. 1812 died ??
2) Elias N. B. Wood born approx. 1822 died ??
3) Jacob Wood born approx 1827 died ??
4) Amos Wood born 1829 - died 1908
5) Squire Wood born approx 1833 died ??
6) Joseph Wood born approx 1836 died ??

Now I'm wondering if Jacob and Squire is one in the same person? Meaning Jacob Squire Wood.
The problem with this family is that all the men have been arrested at one time or another. They were inmates at the Marion County Jail at different times for: Gaming, Grand Larceny, Manslaughter, ect... making them to have reasons to use alias names. Some of the men just disappeared and cannot be located in any later census.

On the other hand there is a possibility that Squire Wood, entered the CIVIL WAR in 1861 and was severely injured and became a POW on May 27, 1864 in Nicholas, West Virginia.

Amos Wood, also may have entered the military. I have been able to locate him in Fort Randall, Dakota in Feb 1863. Then not able to locate him again until 1900 when Amos is living in the National Military Home for D.V.S. in Grant County, Indiana.

So I am trying to piece the family together with the small piece I have, and it has been very say the least.

RE: Jacob wood
Hi David,
Thank you for your reply.
I was more curious if, there was another WOOD next to Jacob? I am trying to make my WOOD family connections, and this has been a very difficult process. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank You,

RE: hello
Don't worry about it. You can have it. I'm not that picky. Got too much going on here to worry about that. :-)

RE: Crown hill cem request
Thanks David for trying. I am not even sure if this is the man I am looking for. All I have is a name. I was hoping for a birth year.

RE: crown hill IN reqest
David- Sorry for the delay in your help in trying to locate James W. Russell. James was my great-uncle. James W. Russell was a Civil War veteran. He was discharged in Dec 6,1862 in Bowling Green, KY, with a disability and a member of the 70th Indiana Volunteers.
Russell, James

Discharged Dec 6, 1862, disability at Bowling Green, KY
The information above was taken from the following
James W. was not of the colored troops as he was white. I posted on his Find A Grave site information that he was to be buried there. Does Crown Hill have a record of burial for him?

Thanks for your help....Pat
