Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a single (44 years old) mother of a 22 year old daughter. She is Princessrugrat on here.

I have a deep love for cemeteries. I love the art, the history, and the untold stories about each resident. I find it peaceful and thoroughly relaxing to walk through cemeteries. I'm working on several but the main one at the moment is Oak Grove Cemetery in Conway, Faulkner County, Arkansas.

I am a member of the organization called Preservation of African American Cemeteries
(PAAC).

I was born and raised here in Arkansas as were both of my parents and all of my grandparents.I started searching my genealogy in the Sixth Grade as a project and haven't stopped since.

Clark's in Fairview Cem. Wardsboro VT
Hello Libby... I see you are investigating Clark's in Fairview Cem, Wardsboro. Just was up there last week... those are my mother's ancestors. I've done a lot of work on them, if you have any questions, ask!

I updated the comments on Little Birdie's story - her parents had one more girl, then they must have split because the father took the other daughter to New Hampshire, and her mother, Eliza A Clark, seemed to be on her own. She eventually married Preston Higgins, and they lived quietly in Jamaica VT together.

Eliza's father is Osmer Newton Clark - a bit of a puzzle for us. He left his wife, Eliza Mahan, with 6 children in Vermont about 1847 - the 1850 census has him working on the Erie Canal, and started a new family (!) The family continued to name boys Osmer for a couple of generations though, so it's a puzzle. We found him (and his NY family) buried in Frankfort NY cemetery last summer (no stone).
Kind regards, Cathy Lilburne, Garrison NY

Gerald Johnson's marker
Hi---I don't live far from the Bella Vista Memorial Gardens---I will check back occasionally to see if he gets a permanent marker I can include on his memorial.

Harry Jackson
I thought this was the Harry B. Jackson in our IL. family but it is different one. I didn't find this out until the memorial management had been transferred to me. It is not Harry B. Jackson of IL. and Arkansas. Harry B. died in Little Rock and was buried in Almyra with most of the family . They do have the same birth & death years.

Taylors in Oak Grove - Coldwater, MI
Hi Libby,

I've found the locations of the other Taylors (E.P., Eliza, Harvey, Jabez, Melvin, Nellie, and Adelia) for which you've made photo requests. It's a large cemetery and they're all spread out but I hope to visit on Sunday and get their photos for you.

Matt

Yeah this one is hard. Elmira, IL has a marker for him there too. I know he is probably buried in Western but I did both because I thought those people looking at the marker in Elmira should know that I feel he is buried in Western. I added notes on the Elmira memorial that I thought Elmira marker was just a memorial grave site, and that he is really buried in Western. Got any ideal on a better way of doing it?

This is a duplicate of one that was made in 2005 that is transferred to you.
