RE: Richard Talpy Smith
You're welcome!
I don't have the cemetery book, unfortunately. I'm just photographing the whole cemetery.

As for the sections, I've got most of them done. I've started the last part that goes from the front right corner all the way back to the church hall and over to the left side. Then I'll be done.

The front right section is where I found him and his wife in the family plot.

RE: Chapel of the pines
I was only at the mausoleum once, several years ago. The doors are locked unless the secretary is there - so you have to make an appointment. Although there are rose gardens, all of the crypts are inside - around the walls and also in the basement. The secretary will let you in and you can walk around. I went on a photo request and she told me where the crypt was located.

Unlike the cemetery in Westwood, when someone's ashes are scattered in the rose garden, they put a small nameplate on a memorial. They do not do this at Chapel of the Pines.

It was an active doing cremations there, but is no longer doing them at that location. It's in a residential area and a high school athletic field is across the street.

I don't have plans to return at any date, but I'm sure you can write and see if they in fact have his ashes there.

I guess you could call a mausoleum a cemetery, but usually cemeteries contain mausoleums since the burials are not in the ground.

There is no cemetery at the Chapel of the Pines. It's a mausoleum and you have to make an appointment to get in. I've only been there once and had to wait about an hour for the girl to show up. She stayed in the office, and I was able to walk around.
Currently in Wisconsin - but live in Los Angeles.

RE: Heart Fritter
I am not related, but the obituary does say he was buried in that cemetery, and the dates match, and it's not a common surname, and if you look at the inscription, it looks like HEARL rather than HEART. Possibly you could just add my note to the page until a relative pops up. Thanks.

I've never been to that cemetery before.
My husband says that it's about a half hour away, heading towards Glenville.

He was cremated and his remains were placed in a
nitch in the wall of the columbarium. You may see a picture of the columbarium in the Bakersfield National Cemetery, if you look at the additional pictures of the cemetery.

RE: Iona's
Hello again ---- She wrote a book, probably under her first married name after losing her family. Her husband and son died in a car accident shortly after they lost a daughter. It might have been called "Triumph through Tragedy" --- not certain, though. Maybe more info can be located, including her maiden name.

RE: SWISS??
Please use my email joaniep13@gmail.com so we can discuss this some more. I am searching for info on Ancestry.com and I am happy to share with you whatever I find. Some of these grandparents (going back further) were born in Germany. The part of Switzerland they ended up in is right on the German border, so that's not unusual. I would imaging they came to Virginia for land they could farm, like everyone else, and to flee from a civil war that happened in that town at that time (found info on Google)...to start an exciting new life. I haven't found burial places yet....still looking.

RE: SWISS??
I haven't had time to research & verify all this yet, but it seems that Anna Schaub (1719-1780) had a brother Jacob b.1714 Switzerland d.1771 Virginia, a sister Elizabeth b.1716 Switzerland d.1780 Switzerland, & a brother Martin b.1721 Switzerland d.1792 Virginia.(So 3 of the 4 emigrated to Virginia, but Elizabeth stayed behind?)

Anna married Hermanus Shook b.1718 Switzerland d.1789 Virginia and they had 12 children, all born in Virginia.These might not be correct: Lawrence (1737-1796), William (1745-1811 died in Tenn.), John (1747-1790), Herman(1749-1824), David (1751-1820), Peter (1752-1824 died in Ohio), Harmonous (1754-1824), Priscilla Mary (1755-1815 died in Illinois), Elizabeth (1760-1801), Katherine (1764-1838), William (1767-1840), and John (1775-1849 died in Ohio)

So, most of their descendants stayed in various counties of Virginia that all became West Virginia.

"When Anna Schaub was born on January 31, 1719, in Basel, Switzerland, her father, Jacob, was 38 and her mother, Barbara, was 29. She married Hermanus Shook and they had 12 sons and five daughters together between 1713 and 1775. She then married Peter Shaver on May 21, 1740. She died in 1780 in Virginia, at the age of 60."

This info is on Heritage, but I'm sure some of the children are duplicates and need to sort it all out.

Anna's father:
Jacob Schaub
Birth August 22, 1680 in Basel, Basel-Town, Switzerland
Death 1724 in Wittinsburg, Bassel, Switzerland

Anna's mother:

Barbara Wurtz
Birth 1690 in Benken, Canton Basel, Switzerland
Death 1769 in Virginia (now West Virginia), United States

RE: SWISS??
Hi Micah, I'm glad you're as excited as I am to discover all these ancestors! This is FUN!! Which grandmother are you referring to? I've worked on so many in the past few days, I'm dizzy. Is it Catherine Shook?

My Mom lives near me, here in San Diego, California and never knew any of her relatives except her mom, born in Weston, West Virginia. I went there with her in 1968 to bury "Grama Bell" and just last year, I was in West Virginia again and visited her grave in Buckhannon. Until now, I haven't known anything except that she was Irish and her father was Bascom Morrison.

NOW I'm finding dozens of great grandparents...amazing stories! The Switzerland connection was a major surprise, They were German (not Jewish) and my mom didn't know she had any German or Swiss ancestors at all. (I've been there, right near that little town, and it's beautiful.) Let me look up stuff 7 get back to you with more info.

You can transfer this memorial to me since he was my 2nd cousin if you wish...I have the rest of the family including his parents.

RE: Oscar Crigger
He is buried there...section M, grave 3.

He was a painter, mechanic and a machinist.

Interesting info was he was married twice. His 1st wife died in 1932 from acute indigestion. She is buried in Mercer county, but the location is unknown. They were married very briefly.

His 2nd wife, Alice V ? is still alive, but her status is unknown.

I meant the microfilm that the readings were from were at the WV University - not the book. I don't recall exactly where I got this - I think I ordered it from the Lewis Co. Genealogical Society or some such thing. The only address on it states it was copied (from the microfilm) by Ann and Jay Newman, 143 WBUC Road, Buckhannon WV 26201. It is not dated but I've probably had it 15 years or so. Consequently, I have no idea if other copies are available anywhere. If you like, I will sell you this one when I'm through with it which should be in a couple weeks. My original price was $6.50. I will let you have it for $5.00 including postage.

All I know about her is just what I sent. This was from a book I have which is a collection of Lewis Co., WV Obituaries 1900-1909 which was taken from microfilms at the WV University.
