RE: Burton Family Cemetery (Montpelier Estate)
Wendy, I found that someone had added the Williams Family Cemetery because John Williams was the _original owner_ of the Montpelier Estate. But he willed the estate to his daughter who had married John Burton... hence the two cemetery names.

But because of all the duplicates, Find A Grave took care of the problem and has merged the two into the Montpelier Estate Cemetery and deleted the other two cemeteries - but referring them to the Montpelier Cemetery.

Burton Family Cemetery (Montpelier Estate)
Wendy, I notice that you made several memorials with photos in the Burton Family Cemetery (Montpelier Estate) in Henderson, Vance County NC in April 2012. In April of this year someone made another cemetery named Williams Family Cemetery with duplicate memorials of most of those in the Burton cemetery (with no photos). These two cemeteries need to be merged BUT I can't find the correct name for it. Do you happen to remember OR do you have a photo of the cemetery name sign?

To avoid confusion and other duplicate cemeteries I thought it might be named Montpelier Estate Williams-Burton Family Cemetery but I don't know the official name or even if it has an official name... the Vance County Genealogy Society doesn't have this cemetery on its list by any of these names. I have asked them about it but have not received a reply. I also have informed the person who made the duplicate cemetery in April of this year but they have not replied either.

I have written the other person who made several memorials in the Burton Family Cemetery in 2010 about this today also. I would appreciate any suggestions you might have about how to handle this.
