RE: Lark
Lood at the reposting of another photo. I was not satisfied with the first one. I was over there today and cleaned it and made another photo. I really brightened it up.

Let me know if you think it is better.

Otto Lark
I have not found Otto Lark yet. I have been thru most of the cemetery the last couple of days and so far have not found. Since he was a child they usually have small monuments or at least that is what I found in my experience in looking for markers. This cemetery has so many small markers and most you can't read what is on them.

If we can't find the marker soon, it may have to wait until cooler weather and I will have to get someone to help to thru these markers that are moss covered, broken whatever and try to clean them as best we can so we can read them. I take brushes with me but I try to be careful as to not damage them. I used the aluminum foil method on one marker today so get a better reading and it worked but the transcriptions were raised letters on a monument. It was just that the letters were the same color as the monument and would not show up on a photo. It works but only to verfy the transcription.

I used to use flour back about 10 years ago when I was photographing graves. It works pretty well, but you really need to wash it off after the photo take.

But the marble and granite industry around her is still hot because people are restoring a lot and they are going back to the same material.


Anyway, I will keep looking for this childs grave. Keep it posted as someone else may find it. I will handle with you thru messaging.

Larks
Rose Hill Cemetery, Piedmont, Greenville County, SC

Read your message on Larks. There are I believe three Larks recorded in that cemetery. If Henry Augustus was a weaver, this would have been a good place for him to settle down as this was textile mill territory.

W. Lark
Rose Hlll Cemetery, Piedmont, SC

Do you have any other info about the above. Was his initials W. M. and do you know what the name for those nitials.

Was he married or had children who might be buried near him.

This is a large mill town cemetery. Very old and up hill down hill. Broken stones, some illegible.

If you can furnish some more info it will help find a starting point. The cemetery is large and graves are not in any straight order.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if people who find these graves would just go ahead and photo them before they are lost.

I photo the graves and take info from the markers if I do not have it in my date already.

I will try to give you an answer next week 6/13/2011.

lark
i am trying to find out how William F Lark is related to Henry Augustus Lark.
My 3rd great grandfather william f "Billy" Lark was born 1826(27) and died oct 1863. He was from greenville,sc. He was with the Palmetto Sharpshooters in the civil war. i heard thru the years that henry augustus was related somehow and that he moved to arkansas. My Lark was married to a Day and their daughter was Louise "Lou" Lark who marred a Finley.
