|Wanda Darnell||Keown headstones: Bethelehem Cemetery,|
Hi, You have photo requests for John, Ella, George and Nora Keown in the Bethelehem Cemetery, Oconee County, SC.
I visited the cemetery and made some pictures and these four people have one large headstone. I posted the one for John and it did not turn out to good. If it is enlarged it is readable. My question is would you like to wait and see if someone else can get a better picture or would you want me to upload what I have. The headstone has black spots all over it and the names do not show up good.
Let me know
|Ray Tomlinson||RE: Sarah Tomlinson / John R. Tomlinson|
From what I have seen my family is from North Carolina then Highland County Ohio then Montgomery County Iowa
I do remember a Sarah Tomlinson
I was born in Red Oak Iowa
My father, Dean born Montgomery County Iowa Find A Grave #168595160
Grandfather Ray born near Villisca Iowa Find A Grave #142181817
G Grandfather Creighton born in Ohio (most likely Highland County) Find A Grave #134038250
G G Grandfather William Jacob Tomlinson born Rowan County North Carolina, died Montgomery County Iowa Find A Grave #106734791
Jacob’s wife was Sarah "Sally" West Tomlinson, born Feb. 26, 1809, Somerset County, Pennsylvania. Died Jan. 14, 1878. According to Find A Grave she is buried with Jacob in the Villisca cemetery, Montgomery County Iowa. Find A Grave #106734909
From the similarity of the given names, I suspect there are some connections.
My mother published a genealogy of the Tomlinson family going way back to Scotland and other countries and has included many people (second, third and forth cousins etc) I am not familiar with. I will pull out the book and see what I can find but could take a while due to the way she designed the book – no backwards references, just started at the beginning and went forward.
If this helps you let me know if there are any connections that I can add to what I have.
Again, the same result with James Ferguson's headstone. I posted it, but if you want to request another photo, I can try another time of day when the lighting might show the engraving. The engraving is shallow, and is the same color as the stone.

Sorry for the way the photo of the headstone for Esther Ferguson turned out. It is barely readable at the cemetery, but I think in different lighting the engraving may show up better. If you want to send another photo request, I can try another time of day.

Contact Don Burris who maintains the page for Thomas Keown and he can tell you more about his burial location which is not known but he believes Thomas is buried in this cemetery. You can find the link to Don's personal page from Thomas Keown's page.
|Lemstar97||RE: Thomas Keown|
Hello. We were passing through the area on our vacation last October 2014 and my folks are buried at this cemetery so I decided to stop there. That's when I took the photo of Keown's marker which appears to be recently added. I do not know how someone determined that he is buried in that exact location. Maybe a check with the local funeral home or genealogical society might result in a cemetery map or a list of burials.

I am going to transfer the sites over to you as they are your family. As for George Rubush, it has been my practice, if there isn't a headstone or cemetery record, to use the obituary if the cemetery is mentioned. My husband and I have taken photos of most of the graves at Fairview, and in doing so have noted hundreds of bases of headstones with missing markers. I presume they were damaged over the years and discarded. Also, a lot of the early cemetery records are missing. Most likely George was buried next to his wife.
Hope this helps, Sincerely, Catie and Will
|Catie & Will||RE: Record #55776413|
In trying to answer your question, I looked at the Rubush family in Fairview cemetery and now have a question for you. Why have you duplicated so many of the sites that I entered? If you needed things added to the sites, why didn't you contact me? Or, if you are a close relative, why didn't you ask that the sites be transferred?
