Bio and Links
Bio Photo Carolyn B. Leonard, author , freelance magazine writer, genealogist, speaker, past president of Oklahoma Writers Federation, recently honored in Kentucky for locating and marking graves of American Revolutionary Patriots. She is author of the book "Who's Your Daddy? A Guide to Genealogy from Start to Finish" and she enjoys presenting workshops and programs to help people find their family's place in history.

If you see incorrect or missing info on a memorial that I manage, I will be happy to fix that. (Please provide info on where your info can be sourced) Also I am happy to transfer any immediate family members to another volunteer. Findagrave guidelines say within four generations, but I sometimes agree to transfer more distant relatives - so long as they are not also my ancestors. Be sure to include your name and volunteer number in your request to make it easier. Use the "Edit" tab on the memorial which will provide me a hotlink to the memorial.

Please cite my name as reference if you choose to use any photos that I have posted here and PLEASE do not copy the bios or photo to give to Ancestry; that is not a free site. Please show the courtesy of asking permission and telling me where you want to use the info. I have spent a lifetime collecting the info and want to keep it free. Thank you.

RE: Henry Jones, Athens OH
I think this should work and maintain all of the information. Next to the Burial line, click on "Edit." Then you should see a screen that allows you to choose a new cemetery.

IO thought I had a good idea of where the graves would be as there are only a few trees left on the N side of the cemetery--and they are in the circle drive which is at the NW corner.

As soon as I pulled into the circle drive, I saw Don's stone, and I looked out my passenger window and there were Mary and Fred's vaults as big as you please. I sent the sexton a note telling him where they are buried so that he can correct the book.

I can't get good photos of the vaults. They are so long that they look even longer in a photo so just took photo of the bronze plates.

Carolyn, I just looked at the stone for the child. I also saw a tree in the background and there are so few trees, I should be able to find it. If I do, I will let the sexton know so that he can put it in the records. Can you email me so that I can send you a photo as well as have the one on Find A Grave? Also if you do family trees and want to use the photo, you are more than welcome to do so. Cheryl

The sexton said the records say "NW addition lot 3. The current map (made from the original one-which I have) does not note a NW addition, but knowing that, I can check out the NW end of the cemetery as some of my family is buried there.

RE: Sarah Wright
Sorry, but, no, I have no other info on Sarah nor am I related. I was doing some research on some obits for my family and if I have some on same page, I will often see if they are on Find A Grave and forward it to the memorial manager, so that is what I did on this one. Glad you have finally found her! --Vickie

Orange Presbyterian Churchyard
Greetings, Carolyn!

I just took the representative photo of the Orange Presbyterian Churchyard; I don't "manage" it! I'm a professional performer & writer based in NYC. As stated on my member page, I joined Findagrave when it was exclusively about notable burials, not genealogy, and my contributions are oriented towards history & the arts, especially the work of the early gravestone carvers. Efforts have been made to restore the Orange Presbyterian Churchyard since I first photographed it many years ago, & there's an excellent website documenting the burials there which may be helpful to you:
Adonijah is on the burial roster, but his stone, if extant, may still be in storage, as many were removed over the years when additions were made to the church.

Best regards & best of luck with your search,

RE: Flanagan 72719130-
I can try again when the weather clears and hopefully not such a slushy mess. I think I was out there before I learned the "flour" trick so I will try to go out and get more detail as soon as I can.

Thank you so much, but it still shows under you and I can't make the corrections.

Dates for George Stedman
You sent an edit about the birth date of George Stedman - 114764036. I accepted the change, but I wonder whether it's right. Look carefully at the headstone photo and see what you think.
