The Proper Way to Clean a Headstone |
from the International Association of Cemetery Preservationists
It is recommended that clean clear natural spring water only be used for cleaning historical cemetery structures. Do NOT use harsh chemicals, high pressure hoses or equipment, or abrasive tools of any kind.
Use soft-bristled brushes with natural or plastic bristles. Never use a wire brush or any metal object for cleaning. Automobile detailing brushes are very handy for cleaning historic headstones and monuments.
At one time it was recommended to use shaving cream as a cleaning agent on headstones and monuments. This came about when cemetery photography became more popular and inscriptions couldn't be read well. Do NOT use shaving cream to clean headstones or monuments. It has now been found to damage the stone because of the often high levels of alcohol and menthol in the shaving cream.

I have information on James and his father George Foreman. George Foreman was my great, great, great grandfather. George is buried in Hopewell Cemetary, New Bedford, PA in an unmarked grave. James and Margaret lived on the farm where I actually now live. I do not know much about Margaret either. I also believe James and Margaret had a son George D. and I found him on a census in 1860 as 5 years old. He seems to have disappeared later, and may have died young (from what my grandmother told me of family history years ago).

Thank you so much for the transfer. I have Alfreds memorial posted and have requested a photo of his stone.
You are so Appreciated

Hi, do you have any info on Georges family? I know he had a son James, but I do not know who his wife was. Also, James married Margaret but I do not know her birth name. Thanks for your help ;)

I have made the request. Sorry for the delay.
|E Malcolm||RE: Glenn's & Houk's|
Hi ctwardo, are you related to the Glenn's and Houk's? They are my Daughter-in-law's, grand, great's and great- greats. I was wondering if you, if not related, would be willing to transfer them to my care rather than me sending you all the updating information for these folks. They will be in our Family Genealogical Tree, which I am preparing for my children and grandchildren. Please let me know, thanks so much, Esther

I found this short death notice for this lady. Maybe you could post to the memorial. Thank you. Mary.
Article appears in the Daily Arkansas Gazette, Little Rock, Arkansas, Saturday, 1 December 1888 reads...
Mrs. Matilda Marrs, wife of Mr. S. B. Marrs of the Fayetteville Democrat died at her home near Viney Grove, Washington County, on Thursday last.

At one time you sent me some additional info on this memorial. I have just added an obit which may be of interest to you as it gives her marriage dates.

You took a picture of Charles Ellis Jenkins (Memorial # 11020641) in Canehill Cemetery, Canehill, Washington County, Arkansas, USA.
I was wondering if his wife, Lena Webb Jenkins is the partial headstone shown in your photo?
I have created a memorial for Lena, but I can't locate any records that state that she is buried with Charles.
