On your find a grave memorial #: 53531771 you have Bertha Morrow McFerrin 1900-1953 listed as James R. McFerrin's spouse. Actually she was his mother not his spouse.

Grenville Wood Jr/II
You have memorials for the same person in two different cemeteries, both with pictures of what appears to be the same headstone:

Grenville Wood, Jr in Riverside Cemetery (#42447772)
Grenville Wood II in Rose Hill Cemetery (#14900966)

The second person on the stone, James Henry (Wood?), is only listed in Rose Hill. Can you please investigate and let me know which one is correct? You can connect him to his parents, Grenville Wood (#14900939) and Antoinette Wood (#14900945) who are buried in Rose Hill.

RE: Susan Fennel Davis
Thanks , for making the connection so quickly. I do not believe it is necessary to transfer at the present time. I am not a direct descendant of Susan, but of her brother, James C. Fennel.

Mistakes in Name
Sorry I call you Sunshine instead of Starshine. As you can see we all make mistakes. It has been a while since I contacted you.

RE: Miles Stevens
No problem, glad to help! I uploaded the picture of the main lot to Miles' page last night so you could see what it looks like. I'll check your page and add the rest when the memorials are added.

Miles Stevens

I stopped by the Washington Library today during my lunch hour to see if I could locate any information on your ancestor Miles Stevens in the Rose Hill Cemetery book (call # 975.8 Bi Tho). I do have quite a bit for you, I hope it may be helpful.

Miles is buried in Lot 15, Block 7 of the Central Avenue ridge in Rose Hill. This lot was purchased by S. L. Stevens on 05/30/1849. Unfortunately, Miles's grave is unmarked. However, this is a large lot and there are several burials, both marked and unmarked, inside of it, and maybe some of the others are also your ancestors. According to the documentation, the following people are listed as buried in this lot:

Ansel Milton Albritton (01/21/1810-11/20/1856)

Catherine A. Grimes Stevens Bunn (12/19/1819-01/27/1880, Wife of Rev. Simeon L. Stevens & Rev. Henry Bunn)

Cora Stevens Gates (c.1863-no records kept, Wife of Henry L. Gates) UNMARKED

Henry Lafayette Gates (07/12/1855-01/12/1917)

Iverson F. Holt (06/08/1847-09/04/1927, CSA)

Katie G. S. Holt (03/25/1859-02/23/1948, Wife of I. F. Holt)

Mrs. Letitia Stevens (c.1828-10/24/1878) UNMARKED

Miles G. Stevens (c.1821-11/02/1893, CSA) UNMARKED

Simeon L. Stevens (c.1797-01/18/1854, Age 57)

4 non identified: 2 adults and 2 children (they have slabs but no markers, and there apparently was no record kept of who they are)

I was able to locate the lot in the cemetery, and I took some photographs for you. However, this lot is a bit run down and some of the tombstones and markers are worn with age (Ansel and Simeon's are particularly difficult to read, since they were done in marble). The number of unmarked graves makes it impossible to determine which one is Miles, and some of the graves are badly deteriorating (the brick and mortar work on Catherine's was actually collapsing into the vault, opening the interior of the vault itself to the air; I wasn't able to get too close to it or Simeon's as a result).

I have the following pictures:

One of the entire lot, showing the size and where all of the burials are.
One of Henry Lafayette's grave, which is the largest.
A close up of Ansel's spire, it's a bit hard to read since the words wrap around it, and are also worn down as they were done in marble.
Two shots each of the two Holts, one of their slabs lengthwise and one close up of the markers.
One zoomed in of Catherine's marker (I couldn't get close to it because of the vault collapse, so I couldn't move a vine out of the way of the spire, either... but it should be easy to read)
One zoomed in of Simeon's, which is very difficult to read regardless - the marble is just in bad shape.

I double checked your page here, and I didn't see any memorials for any of these except Miles. Would it be easier for you to create memorials for any of your relatives in this lot, and then let me know, and I can add the photographs? Or would you like me to email you the photographs? Please let me know!

Hope this helps,
