Please be aware that Find-a-Grave is not my full-time occupation. I am not retired but am a working professional whose work and other obligations can demand a great deal of time. I work with F-A-G whenever I have time available to do so. What this means is that sometimes many weeks or months can go by before I can make updates or transfers for individuals. If you leave me updates or transfer requests, please be patient.

RE: Cox Cemetery
Thanks for that info. We have the GPS co-ordinates and once we find out who now owns the property, we may try to get to it.

It's such a shame. We never knew it existed until I started looking for graves.

From my list, there are 54 of my husband's ancestors buried there.

It's a shame that this happens so often. I believe that it was on either the Jacob Rush farm or the A.Cox farm property.

Thanks for the pictures you did get. I do appreciate what must have been a difficult task.
It means a lot to me.

Re John Hughes # 80602838
Thanks so very much for the great photos for John's memorial.
I always say it makes our Find A Grave memorial so much better, like we are there snapping memories ourselves.

Thank you,

Cox Cemetery
Dear Sir, Could you please tell me how you obtained access to the Cox Cemetery outside of Clarksville, PA?

We have been told it is very dangerous ground and we do not actually know who now owns the land but that it has been surveyed and archaeologists have
been there also.

We wish to try and photograph what we can, clean it up, maybe stand some markers back up.

We simply wish permission to at least go and see it. As of now, we know that there are 54 burials

I noticed that you were the one who took the pictures and this is a family cemetery that I believe was once on a family farm of our ancestors.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Robert and Karen Largent

Are there other tombstones that are in the Cox Cemetery, that have not been added. Just curious, as I found a burial list and added some Litzenbergs, Cox and Rush, that I have been looking for.

Re Catherine HUGHES Sharpnack # 85503954
Sorry I'm slow getting back to thank you for the photos of her memorial marker.

The marker for Catherine is special. The photos surely do it justice.

Thank you so very much for her memorial photos.

I am interested in knowing if Margaret's maiden name was Gump and if so, then who was the Tuttle.
I am related to Marion Wilson, her spouse. Thank you for your help. Carol Lynch

Roy L Wise
All of your work is appreciated. Thought you might enjoy knowing I added a mini biography and photo for Roy L Wise (buried at Greene County Memorial Park). He was a well known individual in Greene County and one I have many memories of from the 1950's.

It's always nice to thank our great Find A Grave photography contributors. Just makes a memorial so much more when we have photo documentations.
You do such a nice job for all of us descendents.

Thank you so very much
