The headstone is located at Pleasant Grove Campground Cemetery. This headstone was place here to represent his service in the "Rev. War." He is buried at his home place (prob. private property). Have read he was probably near the barn which probably does not exist today. Do not have any photos. Are you related?
|Joel Shore||RE: Re: Thurber photo request at Mt Hope|
The person who created that memorial creates and manages tens of thousands of them, so I don't know if you'll have much luck getting him to update it. (And, really there is little else he can say besides the last name of the infant since no first name is given.)
The optimal thing to do if you are no longer interested in this person is just to delete your photo request.
|Joel Shore||Re: Thurber photo request at Mt Hope|
In regards to your photo request for "Thurber" (d 1841) at Mt Hope in Rochester, NY: Since the memorial contains very little info, I thought I'd fill you in on the details so you can decide if this is the person you are looking for:
This memorial was created from the Mt Hope Interment Records (http://www.lib.rochester.edu/IN/RBSCP/Databases/IMAGES/MtHope/disc1/00000336.pdf) which the person as "Philip Thurber's infant" who was interred on July 21, 1841. From the plot map of the burial location and a survey of surviving markers, it appears that there is no marker for this infant, although there are for the father Philip Thurber and his wife Tirzah.
Please let me know what you want, given this additional information.
|Lauren Mahieu||RE: Thanks|
You are very welcome. I've tried to access the office to see who is buried there, but have not been successful at visiting when they are open. FYI, this was actually my second attempt to find them. There are quite a few older, damaged headstones there, so it is possible they are stacked up with others that were too damaged to remain in place.
I received your email concerning a photo I posted. You have asked for the exact wording on the stone. There is no indication as to which gravesite you were referring to. Can you give me the memorial# or name and cemetery?
I will check my notes,

|M.E. Packard||RE: Wiborn Nichols|
Here is the obituary from Shortsville Enterprise 12 November 1914:
The death of Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Wiborn, a well-known resident of Farmington, occurred at her home in that township about 4 o'clock on Sunday afternoon, following a long illness. Her age was nearly 76 years. During the month of July last, Mrs. Wiborn had the misfortune to fall and break her hip and had never recovered from the effects of the injury. She was born on January 5, 1839, in the house where her demise occurred, and she had always made her home there. Her parents were the late John H. and Minerva Power Nichols. She was a faithful member of the Manchester Methodist Episcopal church, having lately been transferred to that church from the Victor church. The survivors are two sons, John Wiborn and Francis Wiborn, residents of Farmington, and one daughter, Mrs. Gracia Blym of Phelps. The funeral obsequies were held from her late home on Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock, the services being conducted by Rev. W. W. Lane, pastor of the Manchester M. E. Church. The burial followed in the North Farmington cemetery.
Hope that helps!
|Rose (Gilreath) Hollingsworth||RE: Thanks!|
I am interested in the Johnson family because I have (had) 3 half-brothers and 1 half-sister who are Johnson's . The oldest of them ( Rev. Michael Wayne Johnson ) passed away in Feb 2011 . I am working on them for my siblings; 2 of whom were born in Corbin as was I . To my knowledge for now , my family has no Johnson's buried in that cemetery . As I research, I find more information . That's how it stands for now . Hopefully you'll find someone to help you out . Good Luck on your search .
|Rose (Gilreath) Hollingsworth||RE: Keck Cemetery Johnsons|
You didn't say where the Keck cemetery is . I'm in NW Ohio . I don't have transportation to go anywhere and am disabled . The only keck cemetery I know of is in Knox co. ky. I haven't been down there for 7 years except for my husband's funeral in nov 2010 . Hopefully someone can help you with your research . I have the same problem with getting photos myself . Most people on here are quite glad to help someone . I wish you luck and am sorry I'm not able to help .
|Dave McCaffrey||RE: Samuel Loomis|
The large four-sided monument was in the Woodlawn Cemetery, in Suffield, CT. I'm checking to see if I can locate Samuel Loomis' actual gravestone in Westfield. For his DOD, there is only one cemetery in the area that he could be in. I'll keep you posted with what I can find & hopefully post. Thanks for your kind remarks on my pictures. I try to ensure these stones are legible before posting them.
