Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am posting what I know about the folks who were buried at several family cemeteries that would likely be overlooked otherwise, then linking them to as many descendants as practicable. Each of these cemeteries includes a gravesite of the first family member to reside on the land on which the cemetery was established.

I have been very pleased to learn that many other people are interested in memorializing those who have gone before us, and are eager to share what they know to make each memorial as accurate as possible.

If I can return the favor, please let me know.

Ellen Louise Brown Buford
Thanks for the info on Ellen Louise Brown Buford.

I stumbled into the cemetery while working in real estate and found that no one had recorded the information.

I have no connection with the family and am pleased for you to provide all of the corrections and links necessary to proper memorialize the family. I have transferred the memorials for your care.

Warmest Wishes,

Joe Jamison

Ann Mariah Bittick - Buford Cemetery
In response to your rather snippy email, first of all, just because a person doesn't have a gravestone doesn't mean he/she is not buried in a particular cemetery. There are millions of people buried in unmarked graves. And FYI, the burial location of Buford Station listed on the death record is a geographical location and not necessarily a railroad depot.

Secondly, I am very well aware that find A Grave has provisions for people whose burial location is unknown, but thanks so much for telling me that I "can" avail myself of it.

Benjamin Shuman at Kinney Cem.
Thanks so very much for this information about his proper burial place. I will work with that manager to get mine merged with his and Jemima's.

Re: Robert Perry Jones request, Roselawn, Baton Rouge, LA
In the same plot are

Emily Gertrude Dreher Irwin 1853-1933
Mary Jayne Irwin Jones 1877-1966
Sarah Irwin Jones 1905-1971
Dr Robert Perry Jones 1872-1932

The rain is and has been causing the grass to grow faster than they can keep up cutting. Should you need clearer, better photos, please do not hesitate.

Leonard Stump
The father of the wife of Leonard Stump is misidentified on Find A Grave. In Hardy Co. Wills 1, pp.469-71, _George See_ named Leonard Stump as his son-in-law, husband of George's daughter, Elizabeth.

James Buford Cemetery
I was responsible for coordinating the 2009-2010 restoration of the James Buford Cemetery on behalf of the Buford family. The person who did the restoration is no longer available to us, and we are currently looking for some one qualified to provide ongoing maintenance and expert repair as needed. Any suggestions will be welcomed.
