OLD GRAVESTONES
According to the website link that I originally sent you, Lines 1 - 11 contained 239 plots. That would have been a lot of headstones to store. In the remainder of the old section, only 1/3 of the headstones remain. The stones that were used were not very resistant to weathering and erosion. Many are broken, ad completely smooth and unreadable. I know it doesn't help, but perhaps that's what happened to the headstones of your family members.

Leasing graves
Hi Pamela. The bodies are not removed. Since both the body and the coffin undergoes a lot of decomposition after 99 years, they can easily be compressed downward to make room for other burials above them. Although in theory all cemeteries can resell the plots, this is the first cemetery that I've come across that actually did it. I'm very sorry.

Henry Gordon
There seems to be some confusion. You said that the Henry Gordon I referred to in the Federal Census records could not be yours because your Henry married Sybil Garwood and was buried in Seneca Nebraska.
If you checked the census records I listed, you will see that Henry's wife was named Sybil, and that the 1900 census I referred to was for Seneca, Nebraska.

Henry Gordon
I have found nothing in my research to suggest the Gordon's I am researching may be closely related to your Henry Gordon.
You stated that "I have searched high and low on the Internet and have not been able to find him anywhere."
He is on the 1880 Federal Census, Holt, Nebraska; 1900 FC, Seneca Nebraska.

Sometimes when I'm on Ancestry I'm tempted to take them up on their offer but so far I've been able to resist the temptation.

We'd like to have our DNA tested but the cost is prohibitive just to satisfy our curiosity. Sorry to disappoint you. Thanks for your suggestion though.

RE: James Johnston
I can't understand people who clutch their research to their breasts so to speak. Some people create memorials on F.A.G. and, when requesteed to transfer an ancestor, demand proof - practically in blood :) - that you are related. I enjoy sharing my research and glad you found what I have on the Johnstons helpful. I think you and my husband are somehow distant cousins. His many time removed g-grandmother, Sarah Johnston (parents James & Nancy), was married first to Thomas Johnston (her cousin) and Denny's line continues from Sarah & Thomas's son, Thomas.

James Johnston was one of my husband's great-grandfathers. Here's what I have in my RootsWeb file: http://worldconnect.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=nangiblowe&id=I23944
