RE: beulah cemetery - rogers family
Hi, you asked how i was related to the Rogers family... actually I am related a couple of different ways through marriage far removed but the MAIN way is through my great great great grandmother Alice Rogers Potter... you have memorials for some of her siblings... i saw you have Albert and Arthur (and I can't access my right now so I dont know the other siblings names from memory). Alice was the youngest Rogers sibling (I believe there were 9 of them, the children of Henry and Hester Rogers)... Alice married Edward W Potter and died giving birth to her first and only child when she was just 17 (my great great grandmother Alice Potter Grimsley). I am also related to just about every Grimsley and Petitt in that area. If you have any pld photos of people from the Rogers family, I would love to have copies - I saw the one you put up of Arthur and it is great!

RE: Trone/Weeden
Thanks for the info on Trone's! If you're going to get shot going into that part of town, then maybe it's better not to! I'm going to see if any additional info is on the internet regarding this cemetery...
Thanks, Heidi

Beulah Cemetery/Schurtz Cemetery
Hi --
You definitely did not do a muck-up. You did a wonderful job, and devoted a lot of time and effort in entering all of those burial sites and photographs. Only those of us who have lived in the area all of our lives, and who have relatives in one or both of the cemeteries know it is two separate cemeteries. They really need some sort of identification on Schurtz Cemetery, and hopefully will get around to doing so in the near future. But you have done a great service to a lot of people with all of the work you put into this project, and it is greatly appreciated!!

Beulah Cemetery and Schurtz Cemetery
Just a note to help avoid any confusion someone may encounter when looking for a relative's grave -- there are two separate cemeteries, side by side, on Beulah Road in Franconia (Fairfax County) VA. Beulah Cemetery is very clearly marked, with the name over the main gate, wrought iron fence on the front and sides, and a chain link fence across the back. It is beside Calvary Road Baptist Church (formerly called Beulah Baptist Church). Just behind and to the north of Beulah Cemetery is Schurtz Cemetery, a chain-link fenced-in cemetery, with no name shown. The two cemeteries are divided by a county blacktop footpath. Schurtz Cemetery is beside the Mount Calvary Community Church. This Beulah Cemetery listing of gravesites contains graves from both cemeteries.

Susanne, you are more than welcome. I also added some more photos to the Sartin Cemetery, Anderson Co., TN. to listings that I believe you had made, you may want to check them out. If you need anymore from around here let me know and I'll try to help.
