I think he may be in Greenmount- I have a call into them about his wife who should be there but they also cannot find her (even though her obit says that is where she is buried) - keep me posted on what you find- thanks! Toni

George W. Bennett
I checked Loudon Parks records and they don't have a George W. Bennett in their cemetery. Do you know where you got that information from? I have checked his obits and they don't say Loudon.

Hi Kim,

I plan to visit Cedar Hill Cemetery tomorrow and continue grave photography. I will check for Julia's stone, but I don't remember any for her.
The interment Records have Wm in E - 9 - 9 top while Julia is in E - 9 - 1.

Are you related to the Brayshaws?

I appreciate this information, there is a drawing I have of the sections in the cemetery. But it does not show any As section, do you have any knowledge of this?

P.S. I forgot to ask, did Aaron have 2 wives? I noticed that he already linked but thought I'd ask to make sure, lol. I meant to ask before accepting the edits. Kindly let me know.

Hello again. :) I see you sent you edit request to link Aaron to Mildred as a spouse. Is Aaron the father of A. Leslie and Howard Davis Lewis? Thought I'd ask, I can link him to the children if he is the father. :)

RE: 139357085 Lewis
Whew, lol. Okay, I've added the images that I took last year to all the memorials and have also added a map of their whereabouts, too in some of the memorials (in Kathryn, Leslie G. and John D.'s memorials).

I examined my photos and found other markers that supported my findings. I generally take panoramic view images as well so that I know what other markers are nearby). Furthermore, I included GPS information as well in each memorial as well as I have corrected the plot information. Cheers! :)

RE: 139357085 Lewis
Hello there and thank you for you inquiry.

I was there at Druid Ridge Cemetery in person last year and I must have missed adding photos of their markers after I created their memorials. I noted that another contributor has posted images to their memorials in case you were interested. I found the images I took last year and I see why I didn't post them, specifically to A. Leslie Lewis and Leslie G. Lewis. This is a double sided marker and I took images of the names on the big marker for these persons but didn't get a whole photo of the big marker. I found my images of their markers but my photos wouldn't enhance the memorial as they pretty much the same shots (however, mine were taken in the sunshine). Maybe I'll add them in case.

In regards to the large marker, they share this marker with Kathryn W. Lewis, John D. Lewis, Mildred L. Lewis, Fielding H. Lewis, Leslie G. Lewis and A. Leslie Lewis. Around this large shared marker there are small individual markers. I am going to add photos to those others memorials right after I send you this message.

I had every intention of going back again but unfortunately, I haven't been back in that area since last year. I also noted that I might have listed them in Annandale Section by accident when in fact they are actually in Maple Slope Section. I will review my images again and see and I will let you know. If you wish, I can post an image in one of the memorials indicating more or less where they are. I can see another familiar marker right behind this marker that is in the Annandale Section. There is a road (in the cemetery) that separates these 2 sections.

I hope this information helps in case you were still interested in visiting and photographing.

Cheers! :)

Hi Kim,
Aha, you found 'em! Great!
I have family in Althea so that's why I would have been in that section wandering around & taking a few photos.

RE: Swindell edits
Hi Kim : yes, by the way, the office has moved to another bldg. I found this out abt. a month ago myself. I'm retired and therefore free during the work week. I have found it best to go to a cemetery office during the work week in mid morning or early afternoon. Never at lunch time, nor too early or too late.
Most cemetery offices are not open on the weekends.
So, I never go to an office on a weekend.
I entered the death notice for Richard, Jr. You will find it in his memorial. I overlooked your message yesterday.
The nicest folks I've found are at New Cathedral Cemetery. They have a computer database right in the office as well as the old log books.
Aha, so I may have gotten the Section O info from you. Well, you'll find those folks eventually so it'll be corrected.
Oh, the reason for the shift in the office at Loudon is because it is also a funeral home. I think they just wanted to separate the two aspects of the cemetery.
I carry jugs of water, a brush & a big sponge in my trunk for cleaning markers. Absolutely NO detergent of any kind. Sometimes a mirror will help throw light just is the right way to help read inscriptions.
Find A Grave has a Facebook page. Some cleaning info pops up on there as well as some interesting stories.
OK, I'm starting to ramble,
Ciao for now,

RE: Swindell edits
Hi Kim:
Looks like I entered Section 'O' so they are probably there somewhere. The office will give you a map and an idea as to where the lot is. I say "an idea" because Loudon Park sometimes is not too friendly or helpful. Ask for the name on the first grave in their row and/or names near by. That info will help a lot.
I clicked on the photo and saw that I had entered it in May of 2013 so it would have been cooler then. I usually only go on dry & cool days & even in winter when it's not too cold.
Many of the tombstones I've taken photos of have been near ancestors of mine & so while there I have just randomly chosen a few to photo.
I walk with a cane nowadays so don't do very much wandering around. I only wander a bit while researching some ancestor.
Tell your cousins to definitely join. I'll be happy to transfer the memorials to them.
Why not go back to that overturned tombstone & look at it again. Take a jug of water & a soft bristle brush ... nothing abrasive ... and see if you can clean it some. Then take several photos from different angles. Read in FAQ what NOT to do when cleaning a stone. (maybe you already have & if so I apologize for playing teacher) I'm fascinated by those overturned ones.
Thanks for the update,

Hi Kim,
Thanks for the Swindell edits. Are these folks in your tree? Would you like me to transfer them to you?

RE: Dorothea Bollinger
Hi Kim, you are certainly welcome. That is why I originally tried to transcribe the entire cemetery. It was my gift back to genealogy and I got a gift back by finding many cousins also doing genealogy. Best wishes and let me know if you need others. Jane

RE: Granville Smith 134927360
Thanks for the photo of the stone. It is appreciated. So many of the memorial I make are of people I find while researching someone else. It might be nice to go back in a few months when the ground has settled and the grass grown and replace the picture
Your help is appreciated.

RE: Louisa Bast
Hi Kim,
Louisa L. Earnshaw Apsey Bast married my
Great Great Great Grandfather Solomon
Bast (by marriage). She was a widow when
they married.

Her first Marriage was to William Apsey, Jr.
(don't have his birth date here with me now but could look it up....he must have died before 27 Dec, 1836, because thats when Louisa married Soloman). William and Louisa had 4 daughters together. She lived her life out with her 2nd husband Solomon and they had 3 more children.

I cannot find an entry for William Apsey, Jr in Find a Grave--I did look.

Did I ask that you transfer this memorial over to me? I don't recall, but if you could I would appreciate can do it anytime. No rush.

Thank you for your interest, work and help on this.

Thank you for adding the picture it saves a piece of history. Slick

RE: Conrad and Margaret Schissler
You also need to use the archives site. It gives you birth, death and marriage dates (within certain years) and once you find the record, you can get a copy. DO NOT ORDER THEM ONLINE. They charge $25 per record online. I go down once every second or third month and can get them for you a lot cheaper, unless you'd like to go with me sometime and learn to get them yourself.

The site is:

Start with Reference and Research, death records. City records you need the code after the death date. Any county record you will need the county and date. Sounds confusing but when you find someone write down everything next to their name.

Added by Debbie on Apr 30, 2015 5:50 AM

RE: Conrad and Margaret Schissler

We will definitely need to wait on the visit. The cemetery is at the east end of North Avenue and that's where a lot of this is going on. North Ave is not the best of neighborhoods on a good day.

If you need any additional dates, let me know. Do you use the state archives site?
