|Paul Hoyt||RE: Jas O Mifflin - McBride Cemetery|
Hello - I think I'm talking to Dale, but I see folks calling you Larry. Please forgive me for the mixup.
After a memorial is transferred to you, you can make changes to it. You can edit the various entries pertaining to the memorial, for instance, you might want to change the name to James O. Mifflin, if you have evidence that his name was in fact James O. Mifflin. If you make a change that you're not happy with, you can go back and make corrections, so there is no danger of causing irreversible damage. You're not obligated to do anything, of course, and I think you can transfer the memorial on to yet another person, if you see fit, altho I have never tried to do that. Personally, I like researching the people that I find gravestones for in the local cemeteries, and I get caught up (and go overboard) in writing a story line from the information found in the historical files.
I still haven't made it back to McBride Cemetery, but it's on the top of my list. Once the snakes come out, it's over for me, ha, that's the copperhead capitol of the nation. Tom Wilson wants to go over there too - he has ancestors buried there, so hopefully in the very near future. . . .
About the plat book - I can e-mail a scanned portion of a page to you - it's a huge book, and requires four separate scans to copy an entire page. I think I have your e-mail addy in my list of contacts. If you don't receive it, post back and I'll try to figure out what I did wrong, ha.
I've known Ruby (Sickler) Dallas for many years. She is also a descendant of Orlando Mifflin - I think she said he was her grandfather.
I just saw the messages below this from Paul--he photographed all the stones in Zion this year; you might want to ask him for more information about the graves.

I'm not Kathy, but I do know where Zion Cemetery is near Campbell Hill. :)
If you go to the main cemetery page for Zion, clicking the map tab (near the top left) will take you to a map showing exactly where it is located. The gps coordinates are just above the map. Also on the main page is the address--it doesn't have a house number, but it does list that it is on Dusty Lane. It is located on private property which is why not many folks know about it, and why I did not add a house number type of address. (You may want to ask permission from the owner before you go there.) All existing stones were photographed just a few months ago. There are two other cemeteries in Jackson County named Zion, and each page has a map with their locations--if the person you are looking for isn't already entered in Zion Campbell Hill, they may be at Zion Lutheran. I hope this information is helpful.

Hi Dale & Brenda
Thanks for the information about Eveline McBride. I have memorials for twelve McBrides and two Mifflins in McBride Cemetery, and I'd like to transfer them to you, if it would be all right. I'm sure you and Brenda are related to them. I also have memorials for Clarence & Russell Mifflin in Murdale Cemetery who also may be related to Brenda.
When it gets good and cold, and after deer season, we're going to go over to McBride Cemetery and try to get more info from the visible stones, and hopefully can find some that have toppled.
Let me know if you don't mind the transfer of those memorials.
|Paul Hoyt||Jas O Mifflin - McBride Cemetery|
I think you're right - it looks like Jas. O. Mifflin to me. Pretty neat!! We're going to go back to McBride Cemetery this winter to poke around some more. There are several stones that I think we can get more info from, and that is one of them. We went over there to fill a couple of photo requests, and ended up adding around 40 graves to the roster. I bet there are 40 more graves unlisted, and probably many of them have toppled stones that can be read with a little minor digging. There's lots of creek rock markers and visible depressions. You have a lot of relatives buried over there. I think my Linda has a remote link to the Mifflins in her family tree, maybe thru the Morbers. Also - I have an early 1900's Jackson County atlas/plat book that I can send copies of to you. I remember seeing the name "Orlando Mifflin" in that atlas, and recognizing him from McBride Cemetery. Let me know if you want copies from the atlas. It's dated around 1905.
