Capt James Parker
Memorial 119423907 is a duplicate to 71023839. We will be removing it shortly. This is a chance for you to move your note to that memorial. Furthermore, we will be holding a service for Capt James and placing a plaque in the cemetery this spring. Probably the weekend of May 14/15. Let me know if you have interest in attending.

Elisha Jones, Grove Street Cemetery, New Haven, CT
I found an obelisk style stone which is extremely worn and hard to read. All I could make out was one side - I cannot read the name but then it says "Wife of Elisha W. Jones." In the same plot on a different stone there is a Sylvester Jones. The plot is 5 Sycamore.

I'm going to do some research and get back to you.

Hi, I have not forgotten your request. This Cemetery does not have an office to get info from. I will need to walk the grounds in order to locate the headstone. Right now it is over 100 degrees here in the Needles/Mohave area. I must wait until it cools so I can stay outdoors during their business hours.

Mr. Jones is buried in Confederates Rest. His grave is marked only by a small cement marker which had the number of the Plat recorded on it. He is buried in Plat #365. Unfortunately the number has worn off and the grave was identified by walking off the plot #'s from a marker which was still readable and a map of the section.

Hi Mr. Jones, I just wanted to let you know I have not forgotten your request. We just finished "Live" days at the fort. I am the gift store buyer, so have been very busy! And I just located the book that has the plot etc locations, so I hope to get this assignment completed after I get back from the 3rd annual Longmire days in Buffalo Wy.

Fort Stanton Cemetery
K Jones:

I have been to Fort Stanton on many occasions. In about 2009, I photographed every memorial and stone at the cemetery that had a personal memorial for a loved one buried there. I posted them all to the FindAGrave website. Many already had postings on Find A Grave, so I did not duplicate them. Unless you know for sure that your loved one had a personalized memorial erected within that time frame, I am sorry to tell you, but there is not have a personalized memorial there. Most of the graves in the cemetery are marked by a simple white, concrete cross. At its base will be a small concrete marker with the number of the person buried there. These numbers are recorded in government records. A copy of these records is located in the Fort Stanton Museum, located at the old fort. Find A Grave Photo Request: Fort Stanton Merchant Marine & Military Cemetery

Most of the folk buried in that cemetery were Merchant Marines. From 1899-1966, Fort Stanton was a hospital for terminal patients in the Merchant Marines who suffered tuberculosis. Almost all of those buried between those dates died as a result of the disease and are buried with only the simple white cross to mark their grave. A few have had loved ones' erect a more elaborate/personalized stone, but that is by far the exception.

There were German Merchant Marine prisoners, who were held there after capture during the second world war. Some of them also died and are buried there in the FT Stanton Cemetery.

Here are some websites about the fort that you may find interesting.

Hope this helps, Jack
