|Bio and Links|
Have lived in Hood River, Oregon, on the Columbia Gorge for 20 years and am happy to seek out graves and history in the wide area that is The Gorge.|
I manage a number of memorials that are not of my family and I know how much it means to have a connection with our own past. Happy to transfer!
If you're managing any memorials with names that match my "Virtual Cemeteries" list, please let me know. It might be someone I didn't know to look for or haven't found yet. Thanks!!

|Louise Taraba||Moses Ellsworth, Sr.|
I noticed your question concerning the burial place of Moses and the answer you received.
Moses did not own the land where the Ellsworth Meeting House and Cemetery (years later known as Bethel) was established. His son John and his wife Mary (Richards) Ellsworth owned the land and deeded an acre in February 1802 for the cemetery and a church building. Moses was known as the father of the M.E. church in Harrison County, VA, but he did not help build the church building. He died before the land was donated. It is believed that Moses' son Aaron, who died before Moses wrote his will in 1794, was buried on John and Mary's land. Likewise, it is believed Moses was buried there as well as Godfrey Bumgardner, father-in-law of Moses Jr., Aaron and grandson John Ellsworth, son of Jacob.
Halla, please refer to the bio on memorial for wife of Moses. Believe the later part will tell you more.
Are you a descendant of the Ellsworths? My mother's mother was an Ellsworth and I was very closely associated with her 1st cousin, the late Dr. Willard Ellsworth, who researched the Ellsworth family for many years.
I will be glad to visit with you concerning the Ellsworths through my home email, if you would care to.
Have a good evening. Louise
|Ken Childers||RE: Moses Ellsworth|
It is speculation...Moses owned the land that the cemetery is situated on and he helped build the church that originally stood there. He was instrumental in the Methodist movement before his death. I know his wife migrated to Ohio after his death with several of his children. He did die in Harrison County, specifically at his home there so my assumption is that he would have been buried in his church cemetery. If anyone has any other information...I'd love to hear it. Maybe track down the resting spot for his remains.

Thanks for letting me know that my memorial 182771739 is a duplicate of your's 1037077876 but it is not a duplicate. If you will notice the stone has Jerald and Infant Tellier. They are two infants. Your's was born in 1918 and mine in 1920 per the Smith Mountain online list.

there are church records of proof. I recently went to Germany and we have relatives burried there also. pictures are not allowed to be taken. you also have to get permission before entering any cemetery in Germany.

I got pictures per your request for Francelia B. Pahlka. There is a bit of a stain in the middle of the stone but not too bad.
I put captions on the two area pictures if you care to click on them to see that.
