Embreeville Paupers Cemetery
Hello Marsha, do you have a high definition image of the Embreeville Cemetery I can use for an upcoming publication? I am publishing a story about a Civil War veteran buried there.

RE: Emmons Jones
Thank You So Much for the info Marsha! That is great news that your Husband is Katie's relative. I'm joining Ancestry.com to research more, I've previously been a member and built several family trees with various software.
My interest has peaked again as My Father, Hugh Walter Jones Son of Emmons, passed away this past Friday.
Good talking to You and Ya'll Take Care, Wish Ya the Best.

Photo of Emmons Walter Jones
Marsha, in your list of photos here on the site, you show an Original photo of My Grandfather, Emmons Walter Jones in his WWI uniform. Photo is connected to his grave at the Old Roswell Cemetery. Do you have any info on where this original photo came from or who has it? I have a computer print out copy.
Thank You
Phillip Hugh Jones, Son of Hugh Walter Jones, grandson of Emmons Walter Jones

never mind, just looked. No other Purdy's 1949 - 2002. Outside those dates, I don't have. If you know of one here in chester county, give me the details and i'll try to find something.

RE: Annie Purdy
I photographed all of Section K and am half 1/3 of the way adding them. Every tombstone that was there in that section will soon be there.

remind me to look at the cemetery listing I have for 1948 - 2002 for other Purdy's later after memorial day.

RE: Brimer
or you can ask the manager to link them. You could do that under an edit and type out the link instructions or just copy and past the link with his number embedded in it so all he has to do is paste it.

RE: Brimer
You can link brothers. It's a bit cumbersome but here is a cut and paste on how:


How do I add a link from one memorial to another?
In order to create a link in the biography of one memorial to someone else's memorial (such as the person's spouse or parent), you will need to use a bit of HTML code. It's hard to put into words, so here is an example (from Johnny Carson's biography which has a link to Red Skelton's memorial page): Pioneering Television Legend, Comic, Host. Carson began his entertainment career in radio but quickly moved to television. He moved to Hollywood to become a writer for "The Red Skelton Show."

In the biography, you would need to type
< a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=XXXXXXX">Name< /a>

where XXXXXXX is the GRid number of the memorial you want to link. The GRid is a unique id for each memorial and as such is the only thing within the entire URL that must be included. The "Name" is what will show up on the screen as a link.

You will need to remove the space between < and a at the beginning as well as the space between the < and / at the end. The spaces were added here to actually show you the code.

You can also use "Add relationship links" on the memorial page. You can add the links to father, mother, and multiple spouses. Adding this information will automatically post the reverse information to the linked memorial as well.

RE: Brimer
I should answer you question a bit better.

My great great grandfather's burial site was unknown. I would have thought he was buried next to his wife for which a cemetery in Paragould, Ark. had a record. But they had no record of him. Finally I found his obit which stated he died in Paragould. I noticed that the purchase date of his wife's lot was one day after the death date of him so that helped me to determine that he was next to her. But the sexton went out there and used a diving rod and said no one was there. Hmm.

So I had a marker made for my great great grandmother only. But the monument company re-evaluated the ground with a divining rod and said the problem was the sexton only used the rod over what would be the head of the grave. If you moved down the grave a few feet, the rod indicates someone is there. So he was just buried a few feet in the wrong direction. I traveled to Paragould to meet the monument company and did the divining rod myself and it was exactly as he said. So based on all that, I had a marker made for my great great grandfather too. I wish I had figured this all out before making the first marker because I would have made a companion marker and it would have been cheaper. But the important thing was a mystery was solved and both are now properly memorialized.

Jesse and Martha McGee (121689861 and 118236177)

So although Westview's records are better, I have seen mistakes even there.

RE: Brimer
I think if the cemetery told you that, you can be pretty sure of its accuracy. They keep pretty good records. Have you been able to locate her death certificate? It should say there where she is buried.

He did look a bit lonely there.
