you want a source for what?
i don't understand.
|Cynthia Claytonroberts||RE: Pendleton|
Was, Fran. This cemetery *was*. I thought I answered this a while back by email, but maybe not:
If you were doing an archaeological dig or dredging the river looking for gravestones, the church building itself was located southeasterly
of Tunstall's Station?, Point?, Landing? which I believe may still show up on later maps, Tunstall's ____ anyway; it was along the Mattapony River in New Kent County.
Travel in those days was primarily by boat. Counties changed under their inhabitants feet without any help at all from Two Guys & a Truck. I'm intrigued by "They" (I'm assuming refers to
volunteers answering your photo requests?).
*Historical markers* !!! Did they send you pictures of them? Put up by whom? When? Where? Saying what? And from what source? (Bishop Meade 1789-1862 had no luck determining where it had been before his day, nor Rev. Slaughter following. My information is from piecing together scraps of deeds, anecdotes in family histories of early Clayton neighbors, day books, whatnot and lotsa mapping.
Official government pronouncements, usually off by
a few years when it comes to county divisions since population increases precede petitions for more accessible courthouses,etc...however that may be easier to search even by name now that much of what still exists has been put online.
Regardless, in the year & 4 mos. I've been with Find A Grave working mostly on my more immediate family and their friends & neighbors in Green County, Wisconsin ~ I actually witnessed the movement of one whole cemetery from Brodhead in
Green County into a neighboring county. No it didn't fall into the river, or be destroyed by war, weather or decree ~ but by the click of a mouse. (The explanation is something about which side of the county line that runs thru it)
And I'm wondering, a couple of hundred years from now when kids are searching the records for the origins of their furthest back grampas 'n grammas who lived all their lives in Brodhead ~ will they be looking in Green County or Rock?

Fran, were you the one that asked if I would transfer Kitty to you? I now have posted the pic where Clarence is buried with no marker. Dee
Hi, all the info I have on Joseph and his family is on his memorial page.
Some is proven and some is not.
I'm sorry but I have no information on anyone buried there. I sometimes choose a cemetery or name at random and leave a message or flower.

I am sorry, but no relation. I post pictures of headstones and post memorials of graves I find in cemeteries that are not posted already.
|Cyndi Beane-Henry||RE: 105815867|
It is my understanding this is a singular grave. You can read more about it, and see many quality photographs of it at:
The plaque with his name on the tomb reads:
"HERE VNDER RESTETH THE
BODY OF S JOHN PETTVS KNIGHTE
CITIZEN AND ALDERMAN OF
NORWICH WHO AGED 64 YEARS
DEPARTED THIS LIFE THE NYNTH
OF APRIL 1613"
I hope this was helpful!
|Cyndi Beane-Henry||RE: 105815867|
I am fairly certain the tomb is simply a single one. [You can look at the size and it is really more like a reliquary than a tomb. However, the family is memorialized above the tomb in the statuettes and bas relief.
