Samuel J Kinkead
Hi, you left a statement on this memorial and I was wondering if you could direct me to the source- per Roots: "Samuel James Kinkead and Mary Coxe, his wife, gave one acre of land for a "Public Burying Ground" just after settling in Morgan County in 1823. They moved to Morgan County from "American Bottom", near St. Louis. This couple was married in North Carolina. He was born in 1782 in Westmoreland Co., Pennsylvania and died in 1843. She was born in Delaware in the year 1781 and died in 1863 at the age of 81 Years, 11 months and 19 days."

Also, I am wondering if you know of a source for the birth place as there is a Westmoreland, VA. The Kinkeads have many connection in Augusta, VA. Thank you. Jude Forsyth

Do you want ownership?
sounds like this stone would be better off taken care of by someone that is more versed in local history than me.

Robert Barlow 147148724
Thank you so much for your contributions to Find A Grave Jeannie.
I added two photos to your page for my great-great uncle, Robert Barlow #147148724 and his second wife, Clarissa Lavina Packard Barlow.
I see that his burial place is "unknown." I have the Application for Headstone" from the War Department and the cemetery is listed as La Harpe Cemetery, La Harpe, Illinois. I checked that cemetery's Find A Grave page, but neither he nor Clara are listed. Their daughter Clara Gertrude Barlow Law and her husband are listed. I'd be happy to contact the cemetery and ask if they have a record of Robert, if you haven't already tried.
I also see that you have "not proven" by the names of his parents, Samuel and Ellen Wrigley Barlow. I've seen the Civil War photo my grandmother had of "Uncle Robert" all my life. I can provide his christening record with parents named; he is named as son of Samuel and Ellen Barlow in 1841 Census; his parents, wives and descendants are recorded in a family record kept by his niece, the daughter of his brother Samuel. This "Samuel of California" is listed as one of two surviving brothers in Robert's Obituary. Samuel was my great-grandfather. He was widowed, living in Pomona, California with my grandmother and her sister at the time of Robert's death.
I can email copies if you you.
Thank you again for your contribution.

RE: Alexander Holt
I have no genealogical information about memorials I've listed. I rejected the suggestion because Elizabeth's memorial number was entered in the "Father" relationship field for Alexander Holt.

I suppose we should use DE Duper on Jacksonville

findagrave supervisor from edit combines memorials with the same name and dates

Jacksonville cemetery
we haven't finished taking pics in Jacksonville however the very low percentage makes me think there were a lot of people who were buried there without stones.
