I live about 2 mile from 6 mile road so i went hunting for it. After asking a farmer he told be the area. I did fine it only by luck. But at this time i can only see one stone. The weeds are so thick you cant get thou. So im adding it to my late fall list. I have found in my area stones with the name Vest on them. Could they be kin.

Nehemiah Wade

Thanks for your message & kind words! You have my permission to copy & use my photo of Nehemiah's stone, just ID it as my work. The original is a 35mm shot that I had taken in 1991, then scanned & uploaded to Find-a-Grave in 2002. I think I also did a b&w 35mm shot that shows the entire stone. Neither image is on my hard drive now, but I will locate, re-scan, & get them to you. It'll probably take a few weeks, though. Meanwhile, I was able to add a little more info to Nehemiah's bio, so you may want to re-visit it.

Best regards,

RE: Young Headstones
You are very welcome. I have always known that cemetaries are a wonderful tool with family genealogy. So enjoy your family. I believe I have photographed all of the Youngs in Mt. Carmel.

William Major
Hi Leni: I found the William Major in the 1910 census for Snohomish Co., WA with a wife named Laura A. The problem is that he was born in IA but his father and mother were both born in Indiana. The should have been born in Ireland and KY. I did find William Major the right age, living in a rooming house in Seattle in 1920. He sowed IA, Ireland, KY as our William should and was a widower so the 1910 listing with wife Laura could be correct.

William Major
Hi Leni: There is only one problem left in this mystery! I spent time on the phone tonight with a grandson and a granddaughter of George W. Major (1854-1925) and Eliza Jane (Sill) Major. They are children of Eben Major (1901-1971) and Edun Major (??-1996)who are also buried in this block of 10 grave sites. Neither of them knows why William G. Major III doesn't have a marker. They didn't know his middle initial either. The real mystery is that they do not know Laura. As far as their records and their memory are concerned William never married. The Funeral Home record verifies this right in the original record of service and burial written in 1922. George W. Major (1854-1925) was William's brother and made the funeral and burial arrangements.

William & Laura Major
I seem to be working the same side of the street as Agnes is on your request for a photo of William Major's grave marker. I see that you have a wife and Agnes was also looking for her. Is the William G. Major buried in an unmarker grave in Anderson Cemetery the correct William G. Major. Gilbertson's funeral Home has the original service and burial records for Anderson Cemetery. Their record for this William G. Major shows him to be single at the time of his death. His father was also William G. Major born in Ireland. His mother was Susan (Bently) Major probably born in KY. Let me know.
