RE: Memorial Sponsorships- Wood
I am not familiar with Scioto's history at all. There are so many variables that I could only offer a guess, and your guess is as good as mine. The town is called South Webster and it is 40-45 miles NW of Burlington, located in the hills of Scioto County and largely an undeveloped area even now. In a horse drawn wagon in 1864, it would take the better part of a day to travel to Burlington. In addition, the Civil War was still being fought and most young men would have probably been away from home, fighting.
Do you know how she ended up in South Webster and did she have any relatives who might have lived there?
Unless she might have had relatives in the Burlington area, who wanted to bury her with her family, my humble guess would be that she was probably buried in the area where she died. You may never know for sure.

My George Wood was from a family in West Virginia.

I meant to let you know that George and Louretta Wood are my relatives and would not be related to you.

RE: Memorial Sponsorships- Wood
Hello Mary Ann,
Your two missing relatives named Emeline may just be buried in Green Lawn. Back in the 1800's Burlington was the county seat of Lawrence County. At that time Green Lawn was known as Burlington Cemetery and was pretty much the only cemetery in Lawrence County. Notice in the picture of James' stone that it is leaning against another stone. It is not necessarily on the grave of James. Over the years, some of the older stones became damaged and possibly removed from the cemetery.
If you know that the women died in Burlington, one in 1842 and the other in 1862, they would have been buried in Green Lawn since we know that James was buried there.
Knowing all of this, I would create memorials for both as being buried in Green Lawn, location of graves unknown, and no stone remaining.
Hope this helps.

Memorial Sponsorships
Hello Mary Ann,

Thank you very much for sponsoring the memorials for Samuel and James Wood.

If you wish, I would be happy to transfer management of both memorials to your care as I am not related to either gentlemen.

Again, thank you for your generosity and the good work you do at Find A Grave.

RE: A Norris Memorial #66991052
I figured NG as "not given" because I looked at other records I had posted there and what was in the bio field and NORMALLY they reflected also a unit of service designation. Good luck with your digging!

RE: A Norris Memorial #66991052
I'm assuming that N/G relates to the fact that his unit of service was "not Given". It has been quite a while, but I believe I took some of that text from an earlier survey someone had done of the cemetery. Yes this cemetery is not far from the Hermitage property. Right on Lebanon Road... t here is another cemetery which is directly on hermitage property.

RE: West St Olaf's, Vernon, Dodge County
I have no problem sending you those memorials. The original people who made the couple of memorials had given them to me, the others I made since there was nothing on find a grave. I try to get as much information as possible and tie people together so there is a family recognition. Thank you for contacting me, and let me know if I can help with anything in the future!
