Fred Wolf

I just uploaded a picture for Fred Wolf. This is a ground memorial so there is no other side. Also, since this is a National Cemetery it is very unlikely that his mother would be buried there with him. Now, if he was married then the two of them would likely be buried together.

Viola Bailey Stack
Hi, I see you put up a photo of Viola Bailey Stack buried in Sacramento. Her husband, Maurice Stack, was a 1st cousin of my g-grandfather.

Are you related to the Stacks?

John Garner
I put a picture of a blank spot for John Garner at Draby Cemetery. I've been over that whole cemetery twice and there is no tombstone for him. It probably got destroyed either by weather or trees. If you prefer, I can take off the picture but someone else might try to find and won't succeed. Unless someone makes a new tombstone.

RE: Isabelle DeSilva

That's not the same person. You need to be sure of your facts before sending edit requests.

Isabelle DeSilva

You sent me a request to make DeSilva her maiden name and add Corner as a married name.

She was married to a 3rd cousin named Stephen B Smith III.

My understanding is that she had an earlier marriage and that DeSilva was the name of her previous husband.

She's listed as Isabelle Smith in the cemetery records.

Where is the name Corner coming from?

Sameul Pelton Seekonk, photo request
Hi Shirley,
I have lived in Seekonk for the past 20 years. The Seekonk cemetery is small enough that my husband and I scoured every grave stone in a single afternoon. We did not find Samuel Pelton anywhere, there aren't any headstones that old. I double checked with Jan Parker, who has been the town clerk for as long as I can remember. She said the Seekonk cemetery was established in 1889, so there is no way he's buried there. Seekonk's topology has changed several times, used to be part of rehoboth, which included most of Bristol county, plus Rumford, RI. Plenty of ancient headstones across the reservoir in Newman Cemetery, plus there are 52+ old cemeteries in Rehoboth. I found a RI grave website: but he's not there either. You could also check with the town of Rehoboth to see if they have him .. (508) 252-6502 x3110.
