|Bio and Links|
I was born and raised in Miami but now live in Marion County in north central Florida. I work in a medical office M - F but enjoy getting out and exploring on the weekends. I've always been fascinated by cemeteries and funerary symbolism so I truly enjoy being part of this website! I am researching the Lanier and Futch families in Florida and would like to also find more information on my Humphries and Allen relatives from Virginia and Georgia. It is always so nice to locate a memorial for one of my family or friends!|

|Camillia||Evergreen Cemetery - Ocala|
Hi. I just wanted to let you know that I found a Lanier headstone in Evergreen. It's very hard to read, but I'll go back and study it more in a few days. (I'm also a Lanier Descendant.) In the meantime, I also found this obituary:
A Sudden Death
Robert Y. Lanier, aged about fifty years, dropped dead from heart failure, while sitting at the dinner table at noon today, at his home, two miles northeast of Ocala on the hard road. Mr. Lanier was convalescing from a spell of pneumonia and exerted himself too much. He was eating his dinner with his children gathered around him. He clapped his hand to his heart and pitched forward on his face, and was dead in a few seconds. Dr. Smith was summoned, but said death was instantaneous.
Mr. Lanier came to Ocala twenty-five years ago from Georgia. His wife died about three years ago. There are five small children left without father or mother.
The remains will be buried tomorrow afternoon at 4 p. m. at the old cemetery (Evergreen). Rev. L. B. Warren, of the Baptist church, pastor of the deceased, will perform the services.
Mr. Lanier was a native of Bullock county, Georgia, whence he came to Ocala in 1876.

Please delete the picture of the gated entrance that says Cemetery. That is the entrance to Northside cemetery which is across the street. Thanks

I added the farm name to the info spot. I photo'd every marker, whether you could read it or not...or if it even looked like a marker...if there is someone else interred there, they are unknown...

I was not able to locate a monument for Lydia Futch 1943 - 2009. The only Futch I located was for: Eli Michael Futch, CO H Regt Fla Inf, Confederate States Army, 1827 - 1902. There was plenty of room for burials on all four sides of Eli however, they were unmarked.

|Andrea Hawk Crumrine||RE: Kileys, Krings and Liningers|
You are welcome. I don't know if you noticed, but I added 2 stones that you didn't ask for because they were in the same area and they had the same surname of Kring. One was Thomas Mark Kring and the other one was Russell and Agnes Kring.
|Margaret Gagliardi||Sarah Marks|
I think the tombstone photo you are looking for is that of Sadie Marks. She is on the same stone as Walter L Marks who died in 1942. I will post the photo that I took of her tombstone to your request, if you are OK with that. Sadie and Sally are interchangeable names. I know the date on the tombstone is incorrect, but that happens quite often. Let me know.
|Mitch Curtin||RE: Elmer and Eleanor Kiley|
Absolutely. Just send a standard photo request.
|Mandy G.||RE: Clarence G. Jeter grave marker|
My pleasure Sue! There were quite a few other Jeters in that plot, I've added memorials & photos for them. If you would like to manage those memorials, I'll be happy to transfer, just let me know!
