Consort and relic refer to a spouse, usually to women. A consort is a husband or wife of a living spouse. A relic is a widow.

Latin abbreviation: H.S.E.
hic situs est (here lies)

Latin abbreviation: H R
Hic Requiescit (here rests)

Latin abbreviation: AEC
Anno Emmanuelis Christi (In Christ Emmanuel)

Latin abbreviation: IHS"
Iesus Hominum Salvator (Jesus, Saviour of men)

"INRI" is an abbreviation for the Latin "Iesus Nazarenus, Rex Iudaeorum" ("Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews")

I typically do not put in calculated birth dates from the Aged information on a gravestone. Those dates tend to be incorrect.

I need help with St. Michaels's cemetery, East Elmhurst, Queens county, New York.

latitude and longitude
To add latitude and longitude for a FindAGrave memorial, click on Edit Plot.

If you place the latitude and longitude in the URL of a browser, the browser will take you to that location. For example, copy and paste the following into the URL of a browser (include the comma and the space: 38.7338, -86.48588

If you download Google Earth (it is free software) and put in the search box the latitude and longitude (for example 38.7338, -86.48588), it will take you to the grave area.

I use Google Earth to find the latitude and longitude. I type in the latitude and longitude for the graveyard and then adjust the numbers until the pointer is on the gravestone.
Under Tools, Options, 3D View
- Decimal Degrees
Under Tools, Options, Navigation
- Do not automatically tilt while zooming

If you leave a space before the values, an error message, "values are not the correct format", will be returned.

Be sure to include the dash "-" for the longitude, otherwise the person will be buried in China.

Johnson
A couple of years ago I found my greatgrandfathers farm I used to visit in the 1950's on Sam Road east of Mitchell. The care taker let me look around and take some pictures of the barn, well this year age and weather took it's toll on the barn and it has collasped. I've only been able to go as far back to Wilford Johnson born 1785 in NC died in Washington Cty, IN 1886

Marden
I received an e-mail asking for info on a memorial for a Nathaniel Marden in the Mitchell Cemetery. I was in Mitchell in January not February. My records do not show me building that memorial or taking any pictures with that name. The photo added (from someone who has been a Find A Grave for about 2 weeks) does not even make sense it is of a woman in 1937 and the memorial was for someone in the 1800's. Since it says I manage that memorial I have deleted it. When I visit Mitchell and Lawrence County I continue to look for information on Johnson, Routh, Dalton. The grounds keeper at Mitchell was very helpful in finding my 2x greatgrandparents (Johnson) that you took a picture of.

Re: 127796794

Dear RabbitTrack,

I have tried to chase down the information you asked on the Memorial and haven't found any trail on Ancestry.com. Louise could have been the first wife of Charles Ray Mundy, b. 1918, but there are no death or marriage certificates or census records. Charles died in Florida in 2001. It would be speculation at this point.

I will keep poking around. Thanx, Dan

Looks like they might be the same person. If you want to copy my info to your Ezekiel Bridwell page, then I will delete the Judson page. Just let me know when you have done that transfer of info. Thanks... jan

Savanah "Vannie" McCain Nelson
Aug. 18, 1868
Lawrence County
Indiana, USA
Death: Jan. 13, 1941
Bloomington
Monroe County
Indiana, USA

I am wondering what kind of evidence you have to proof that this is the memorial for your "Vannie McCain"

I have a newspaper article (The Obituary) that strongly suggest that this is the memorial for Vannie Nelson that has a daughter named Mrs. Otto Baugh. That Mrs Otto Baugh is Bertha Ann Moore who married my great grandfather Otto Estel Baugh.
---------
reference: "Bloomington - Mrs, Vannie Nelson, 73 died today at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Otto Baugh of near Bloomington.... John R Deckard, 65, master mechanic in the limestone quarries, died today at the home of his son, Ralp Deckard.

The Indianapolis Star (Indianapolis, Indiana)14 Jan 1941, Tue".
--------

I have been looking for this connection for twenty years. What I do not see referenced is a connection to my family on the memorial. Do you have a family tree on Ancestry, I can reference?

I would like to see the records that you have if you do not mind as they could help both of us. Maybe together we can solve this mystery.

If you are not a grandchild of this Vannie Neslon, I would ask for a transfer please to Chambers (#48206318) within find a grave rules please.

Best regards

Steven Chambers
