RE: Wilburn Leedy 181455943
I have been doing some checking also and came across some info that yes there may have been 2 at one time as well. I don't even like saying have been at one time, because it would still be there just grown over or something. However someone in the area would know it's just finding the correct person to locate it. Then finding if it's on line. Sunshine Lane is long, Google map still shows is as both Stinking Branch and Sunshine lane. If you look on the other cemetery I have added a map to it and you can use it now for general area. Best of luck. I will keep you in mind on my next trip and or if I find anything new out. I have tons of family buried all over Pike myself and will need to make another trip also! I have been to the library and the two women there working on the cemetery's are Great!

RE: Wilburn Leedy 181455943
No problem I want accurate info just the same! Phone: (877) 285-2534 is the number to the funeral home, they have been great to help me as well. They should be able to give you the exact location for the cemetery, and with that info should be able to know where to place the memorial. It could be a Chapman cemetery that hasn't been created or maybe they can give you some names of others buried there? Ask to speak to someone that has worked there the longest or knows the area and let them know it isn't the one on Sunshine lane on Bo's property. If you have more info from them I might can help you some more.? Good luck

RE: Wilburn Leedy 181455943
I will do the best I can. It looks as though people have placed the memorials in multiple Chapman cemetery's and they are not accurate. The Chapman cemetery that you have Mr. Leedy in is a private cemetery actually located on Sunshine Lane (private property) and was created without a address and map. Sue Lapp and I charted and photographed this cemetery Oct 2016, and located the creator of the cemetery and are working with her to have it updated and the name changed per the families request to the Virginia Chapman cemetery which is the oldest burial in the cemetery and to help not have the confusion it has now. After this one was created another Chapman was created with the address of Sunshine lane and memorials that belong in this cemetery was placed in it that should belong on this cemetery (placed by random people because of the obits) and now they will not move them or transfer them and they are not family. Do you have an obit or know the Funeral home to get an exact location of which Chapman family cemetery for Mr. Leedy? There are only a couple of Funeral homes in the area and it could help to call them to see which handled his funeral and they could help narrow down which cemetery to place the memorial in the correct cemetery. Meanwhile as soon as we can get these two straight I hope it will clear up future placements of memorials. If I can help you anymore I will do my best to get him where he belongs.

RE: Johnson, Richard
So nice to hear from you, In this case it would have been very difficult to get a photo of the grave. We will let the daughters know. They will be so pleased! Hugs!
