|Carolyn Ellis||Christopher Elrod, Jr.|
I am working on this Elrod family and I find you have posted the wrong tombstone picture for this person. The picture you posted is for his father. If you look on the tombstone you can read the death date and it doesn't match the dates for Christopher Jr. Hoping you have the correct picture to post on here.

Have you checked her Find A Grave Memorial recently? Several additions have been made.
|LaVaughn||Christopher Elrod, Jr.|
Christopher Elrod, Jr. was my gg gramdfather and was born on
August 15, 1757 and died on December 4, 1827 at the age of 70 years. On the Find-a-Grave site the picture that was posted for his gravemarker was that of his father Christopher Elrod, Sr. my ggg grandfather who was born on January 29, 1721 and died on January
29, 1785 at the age of 64 years. My husband and I visited the Old Hope Moravian Graveyard in August, 2011 and was unable to locate the actual gravemarker of Christopher Jr. Many of the gravemarkers were covered over with soil. I do wish we would have tried harder to unearth his marker. We live in Central Missouri and we are both in our seventies and probably won't return to that area in our life-
time. In the Old Hope Moravian Church Graveyard Directory it lists him as being buried in "Men's Row, B-4". Christopher Elrod, Sr. is listed as being buried in "Men's Row, F-3". I do have a cousin who
lives near the graveyard and is much younger than I so maybe she
will succeed in unearthing his marker. Are you related to the Elrod
or Douthit families? LaVaughn Elrod Zimmer

Hi Emily--You're very welcome. Glad I could help. Believe it or not, the graves were only about 3 rows from the street close to the main gate. Next time you're in Lehighton, come see me--I live right across the street from the entrance to the cemetery. Bonnie

Thank you Emily for the effort you took to make this picture. It is so much appreciated. This is my mom's family and she was so dear to me. I am in McDowell Co so if you ever need anything here, just ask. You do know that just by putting in the last name of the person and the state and county, it will pull up everyone by that name who has a memorial. I noticed you haven't been on Find A Grave very long so this is just a tip when researching. Good Luck and God Bless You. Caroll
Thanks for posting the pictures. It helps with the picture of Elizabeth Jane Mecum, too, because they were buried side by side. I'll still keep looking for Matthew. His last appearance was in the 1850 Census, I can't find a 1860 Census for anyone so I don't know when, if, he died. It's a 20-year span.
Flora was Elizabeth's daughter. She was named after Elizabeth's sister Flora Campbell who married John Crook Love. She went to Martin County, Indiana with her twelve children after John died. You didn't send the picture of Flora Mecum to me. I have to make a Memorial page for her so you can put it there. Did you see Matthew Mecum, born 1805-ish anywhere close? I am not sure when or where he died actually. He may have died at Fredericksburg during the Civil War but I'm not sure about that either.

Thank you also for the other pictures!! I do so appreciate it!!

Hi, Thanks for taking the picture! I'm sorry if you had to really look for it, it looks like you did. I know part of the Cemetery has been vandalized, was the stone there? It looks like it has fallen down or been knocked down and been overgrown. I really do appreciate you looking for the grave. Thanks again!!

Thanks Emily for the wonderful photo. The entire family appreciates your work.
