Bio Photo I have been doing family history for over 35 years and consider myself bitten by the genealogy bug. My Uncle was the one that got me started, he has done my father's (Rhods) side and I've been doing my mother's side (Putnam) and my husband's (Hawkins)family.

Highbanks Cemetery
Hi Linda, I use to live on a dead-end road here in Springfield. That highbanks rd goes to some orchards and farm land. I don't recall ever seeing any cemetery there or a single grave. My Dad worked for this guy, that owned the last two houses and some big barns on this road. I will try to find out more for you.
Keep you posted.

RE: Elizabeth Miller Huffman
Linda,
The stone was lying face down on the ground; for how long, I have no way of knowing. I flipped it over to expose the writing and let the sun dry it a bit and then gently removed the loose earth. Actually, what you see on the photo is more legible than the stone is to the naked eye, as I kind of photo-shopped the picture, altering the contrast and brightness. I could not discern Elizabeth's surname, try as I might, and my only clue to the Huffman name was the stone's close proximity to (not next to, but behind) the stone belonging to a gentleman named Adam Huffman who I believe was Elizabeth's husband. Her marker did look to have some writing on it but I couldn't make out anything with any degree of reliability except her name. On Adam's memorial page, the photo I believe, shows Elizabeth's marker lying face down to the upper right of Adam's.
There is a possibility that we may be up that way (Clintonville) in the near future and perhaps have another go at photographing Elizabeth's stone. I hope I was coherent in this missive as it is midnight here and I'm in the process of sneaking a bite to eat from the refrigerator. Shame on me!

You are welcome.
I waited for the headstone to be placed, I was happy to see it there. A beautiful headstone.

James A Meyer
I added the photo you requested of James Meyer's headstone and while I was at the cemetery, noticed that the stone adjacent was identical, same death year and same last name. I believe it is his brother. So I also took a pic of George's headstone and have loaded it to his page. Thought you might not have found him yet!

RE: Moore & Dorrance Head Stones
Hi, Linda,
No I didn't know the family. I have started putting in everyone from the cemetery. I go to the cemetery all the time and when I was looking for them I couldn't find them. I looked at the other side of the road and they were so close they could have bit me!! And they were very big and all together. Call me strange but I find it fun doing this. So it was no problem to take them. Glad you liked them. Paula
