Vise Photo Request
Dear Ms. Connie,

I believe I got the photo you requested even though the dates are a little different. If it is a mistake let me know and I will remove the photos. The birth date on the stone was well weathered and worn but it looked like 1832 (instead of the 1828 on the request). The date of death is Sept. 10, 1909 (instead of 9/6/1913). But I do sure hope this is the right one. If you would like the other half of the stone (close-up) just let me know. I also took several other photos of Vise stones if you would like to see those.

Have a great day.

Tom Lamb

RE: John
Like I said earlier, if your daughter wishes to wrote a more informative bio for John Spinks, she can do so and submit it through the e-mail. I suggest that she looks over the guidelines for how they want bios to be written in their Q&A section. I have no problem if she submits a bio and they use hers. But like I said, I have no control over those decisions.

Have a nice day!

RE: John Frederick Spinnks
I don't know where to begin with this. With all due respect Connie, when it comes to famous entries, there is no first one in they take rule. That's great you new John Spinks personally. If your daughter wishes to write a better bio, than she can submit one through the e-mail address and it will be up to the administrators. I no longer have control of this memorial once it has been converted to famous. There is no need for you to be hostile because mine was accepted first. This is only a website for Pete sakes.

RE: Jeanette Pittman Cassell

If you are inclined, usually the owner will transfer the person to you. Also there are several other Cassel(l) that might be relatives and you can submit a name change to add the L ( which I did for Jeanette ).

And you are correct in the bushes get pretty big but you should see some stones that look like you are in a jungle. Overall, this is a pretty well kept cemetery.

I used to live near Bluffton, IN!

RE: Benjamine Rush
You are welcome! I was surprised to see the "e" on the end of his name. It was a hot day today in that cemetery, but it is on my way home, so I thought I would just stop in and look for him.

Henry Croyle-O'Connor Cemetery

I hate to tell you this but there is no headstone for Henry Croyle or his wife Eve in the cemetery. The only record I have that he may have been buried there is Wallace Croyle's "My Search for the Truth" that both Henry and Eve are buried here. In the mid 1930's, the WPA did an audit of the cemetery found only 13 headstones that were readable and his was not one of them.

RE: William Wright
You're Welcome.....I find that to be true, also, that if one member or two don't have a tombstone from "way back then", usually none of them do.

RE: James Fletcher Chalfant
Connie your welcome. We've been having some warm days here and there and boy it feels good to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. This winter just doesn't want to end. I don't have everything uploaded to findagrave yet but there are tons of Chalfants in Redstone cemetery. It's an old cemetery and the sections ive done so far it seems the names just keep repeating theirselves. I'm working on getting all the pictures ive taken so far uploaded to findagrave so maybe i'll have more Chalfants for you.

RE: Ellen Marie Still
You are very welcome. I have tried to find this marker many times without success. I had an appointment with my dermatologist recently and happened to mention that I had seen his Grandfather's marker (same name) at Magnolia Cemetery. He said he had a Registry of the cemetery since he was the Treasurer. I made a copy of it and was able to find Ellen Marie Still in about 5 minutes. Loved it!!

Thanks for your comments!

RE: Robert Lewis
I wonder why you think Robert Lewis was buried at Ware. FindAGrave says his parents were John Lewis and Sarah Taliaferro. There are many Taliaferros at Ware, but few Lewises. The several Lewis families generally lived along the Poropotank River between Gloucester and King and Queen Counties and nearer Gloucester's Petsworth Parish (no cemetery evidence anymore) or on Robins Neck in Abingdon Parish. (I have Lewis family ancestors, and all Lewises known to be buried at Ware are related to me.)

Thank You for the info. I have added it to her memorial. Betty

RE: Roger Landon
HI Connie,

You are so welcome!

I have a question for you also?? I see your last name "Hockenberry" and I have some family that married into the family in Franklin co Indiana, Lot Hockenberry, and some other Hockenberry married into another line of mine in Jay county Indiana and he was a doctor. Both marriages was in the 1800s..

Does ay of your line descend from this area??
Just curious..

Take Care

Adam Barley
Hi....This Adam Barley is my great great grandfather. His son Simon Peter Barley (my great grandfather) is also buried in Salem Cemetery on Bond Ave. Just wonder how you are related to him. I just met this morning with someone researching Ida Messler who was daughter of another of Adam's children Anna Maria(h). Catherine wife of Adam died about 1897 according to a court records testimony by their daughter Elmyra. Not intending to offend anyone but we have used dowsing rods and there seems to be a grave next to Adam. Have been able to find absolutely nothing on the history of Catherine. It was me who had Adam's tombstone recut and repaired about 10 yrs. ago.

RE: Abraham A Strait
You are welcome. I think I enjoy the research as much as the picture taking.
I had to lift and turn over the broken stone because it was face down. It is quite dirty and possibly stained. I will check on it to see if the rain and weather clean it up and then hopefully get a nicer photo.
BTW, I was born in Fort Wayne and raised in Woodburn. I see you are in New Haven.
