Bio and Links
Bio Photo HI, I have been researching my Genealogy since July of 2000. I really enjoy visting Cemeteries and takeing pictures. Headstones are so awesome, they come in all different shape, sizes, Colors, and the engravings express how someone was feeling at the time this person died. I believe you can some what see what kind of a person was by their headstone. And sometime a headstone is all that is left on this earth. I live in Allegan, Michigan

George Mouser
I was hoping to find some information on this burial but perhaps this may give some insight. On the Civil War Roll of Honor George is listed as buried in New Albany National Cemetery. He is not listed on the VA grave locator as being there. There are a total of 5 Ohio soldiers that listed on the USRH page, including George, that are supposed to be buried in New Albany National Cemetery. Only 1 is listed in the VA grave locator. New Albany was one of the original national cemeteries. Burials during the war, if marked, were marked with wooden boards. These boards had an estimated life of 5 years. Stones were not used until at least 10 years after the war. It is possible that the board eroded and records did not allow for a stone replacement. Or it could be that his original lot was not recorded or the record lost or destroyed. He may also have been exhumed and returned home by family. New Albany National has about 700 unknown markers. It is possible that he is one of those.

Lucious Haight Gravestone Photo
Ken, My name is Phil Carpenter,(#47490880). I'm a volunteer photographer for Find A Grave, and I just fulfilled your request for a gravestone photo for Lucious Haight. While I was there I also took a photo of a Grave stone for WILBER HAIGHT, GRAVESTONE reads: WEBBIE HAIGHT, (July 9,1874-Apr 19,1876), which is located next to the stone for Lucious. If this person is of interest to you I can do one or two things with it. If you create a memorial, and let me know when it is complete, I can add the photo to the memorial without you creating a photo request. The other option is for you to let me know if you would like to have the photo and I can email it to you. Please let me know what you would like to do. Email to: pcarpen128@sbcglobal.net

Yes, I figured out that you couldn't remove the link so I sent an edit to Fred Saar, hopefully that will work. Abraham T also has an Erastus T connected to him now that is not a son either. I guess the auto link is not a perfect system! Thank you again for your quick response.

RE: Urana Garrett
That is what I thought probably happened but I have been unable to find any records that prove that. There wasn't any information about Robert's early life in that book was there?

Thanks

Urana Stillwell Garrett
Hello! I am a great great granddaughter of Urana Garrett. I am wondering if you know where/when she died and also if you know anything about her 2nd husband, Robert. I have not been able to find much about him. He is in the 1850,60, and 70 census but before that and after that, I can't find any trace of him.

RE: Oakwood Mount Pleasant Cemetery
I'm not sure if there were inscriptions on the other sides of the monument. However I normally look at all sides and take pictures of anything that's there so I think the other sides were blank. I used to live very close to this cemetery and did a lot of work there. But we've moved about an hour away. If I get back that way I'll take another look. I can tell from the picture exactly where this monument is so it should be easy for me to find.

Hi Ken,

Once again I am asking you to delete your memorial for him as you have his name backwards and is a duplicate. In the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans cemetery.
Thank you.

Beverly
