Request for Picture of grave
As requested, I visited the cemetery and have a photo but not matching William Hitchens in grave 1,358. This must be due to what Ms. Bev has posted below. I would be happy to send you the photo, but not post on said grave forum.

William Hitchins
Thanks for your efforts on behalf of our Civil War dead.

William Hitchins is no longer buried at Alexandria National Cemetery.

The burial ledger shows him as William Hitchen, Pvt, Co B, 14th NJ Cav, of Egg Harbor, Atlantic Co, NJ, with the widow's residence at "Summers" (Somerset?) County, NJ. He died age 25 of pneumonia Feb 1 1864 at Old Hallowell House, was bur at Alex Nat Cem Feb 2, and was removed Feb 10 1864. My guess is that he is buried closer to home.

If you would like more info, please let me know. (To reach me privately if you prefer, just use the Edit tab for any of my memorials.)

I'll notify the person who created the memorial.

RE: John Steelman's grave in New Bern Cemetery
the spelling for John's last name needs to be checked I shows STELLMANS. also he is at section 12, site 2037, so you can update your data base.

Photo Request
Hi Randee

I went through the Absecon Methodist Church Cemetery Records today and found/photographed the following: William Applegate, Frederick Chamberlain, David E. Clark, and Cornelius Dutch.

There were no records for James H Adams or Jesse H Clark in the Church file. I got the name of a gentleman who might have more information and will call him tonight. I did find Jesse L Clark, Private Co H 57th Reg't N Y Vol Infty (Oct 3,1849-July 15, 1898) in Section 34. There was already a photograph posted on Find a Grave for him.

Do you have any other information for James H Adams or Jesse H Clark that would place them in the Absecon Methodist Cemetery other than Find a Grave?

RE: Eli Boling
I checked into the VA headstone. One of the requirements is that the person requesting the headstone fall into one of three categories:
1. Next of Kin
2. Designated by next of kin
3. Designated by decedent

I have a member of the American Legion looking into the matter for me, but first we will have to get a copy of his military records.

RE: Eli Boling
I am working with Lloyd Wimberg who will be searching his grandfather's funeral home records to locate the grave of Eli. We know he was buried in Block 5, Lot 122, the same lot his son Fred would be buried in, some 44 years later. He may also be able to get me to the right place to have a military headstone prepared for Eli.

Block 5 was the "colored" block of the cemetery back then. There are 7 people buried in Lot 122, including Eli, his son Fred, and a Jesse Boling who may be another son. Hopefully his relationship will be established, as well as Annie who may be Eli's wife.

William Sanford (1844-1925
I went to the Port Church cemetery this morning to get information on William Sanford. No one was there so I walked the entire cemetery. The only stone I found with Sanford was for Herbert M (1910-1985).

As I was leaving a gentleman from the Church arrived. He told me he has the cemetery record books at his home, would check them later today, then call me.

PS: I am waiting for a return call from Absecon Methodist Church to see their records. God willing, I will go there the beginning of next week.

Have a great weekend. I will be in touch soon.
