|David P. Wilson||Typo pardon|
Re-reading what I just posted to you below, I see I included a typo when I referred to Rachel as Rachel Wingate, rather than as Rachel Hastings. Rest assured that it is Rachel Hastings I was referring to when I wrote the message below.
|David P. Wilson||Your Rachel Wingate Hastings picture request|
Hi. I was just noticing that you have a tombstone picture request regarding Rachel Wingate Hastings who you believe to be buried in Blades Cem. in Blades, Sussex Co., DE. I went comprehensively through that cemetery the other year, seeking out every Hastings tombstone, and there was nothing for a Rachel Hastings. Then, after my sweep of that cemetery, subsequently another area Find A Grave contributor went through that cemetery in early mid 2014 and photographed every tombstone that was in the cemetery at the time and posted all the pictures, and created memorials, as necessary, if anyone previously overlooked was found. So I'm sure there is no marked grave for Rachel Hastings there, as in the unlikely event I hadn't found it, the subsequent other Find A Grave local contributor would have. Are you sure that Rachel's buried in that cemetery? I searched, just now, online, for any death certificate for a Rachel Hastings in DE in 1898, but nothing whatsoever turned up. If you agree with my explanation, that I personally can assure that there's no Rachel Wingate tombstone to be found in Blades Cem., then please consider withdrawing that particular picture request, as I and the other contributor I mentioned are the two most familiar with that cemetery, and if anyone new were to go looking, they'd just wind up spending time searching for something that isn't there to be found. Best regards - and Happy Holidays! Dave Wilson (Seaford, DE)

I took the requested photo today and will upload it to the site soon. If you'd like the full size photo emailed to you, please send me your email address. I'll keep it on my computer for 7 days.
You also requested a photo of John Bruns. There are 2 Bruns in the Dickson coping in Section 32, but there is no marker for John. I sent a message to the memorial manager asking him if he knows for certain John Bruns is in the Dickson coping before I upload the photo.
|M K Park||Henry Clay Tipton|
There are other Tipton gravestones in the Mtn. Home Cemetery, but not one for Henry Clay Tipton. However, the existing burial records are far from complete, and many of the older gravestones were field stones which no longer exist or have legible engravings. The local library has several older gravestone inventories. I'll check them the next time I am there, just in case he is listed on one of them. I'll also inquire in the Genealogy Room if there are any other records that might be relevant (e.g., obituaries).

|M K Park||Henry Clay Tipton Photo|
I apologize for the incorrect gravestone photo for Henry Clay Tipton. The one currently shown is for the only Henry Tipton shown on the Mountain Home Cemetery records. This cemetery was photographed in its entirety for Arkansas Gravestones in 2011. There is no gravestone shown on this web site for Henry Clay Tipton. Mountain Home Cemetery is a very old cemetery, and there are lots of unmarked graves in the older sections and very few gravestones that date back this far.
I tried to delete the photo from the Henry Clay Tipton record, but the record is locked for edits.

|Tina Stratford||RE: Joel A Cox|
Are you in Ancestry.com? If so, I have downloaded his death certificate in my tree.
Glad I could help!
|Tina Stratford||Joel A Cox|
I've been to both grave sites for Joel, the one at the Berryville, Farmers Cemetary and the one in Twin Falls, Idaho. It is my understanding that the one in Berryville is fairly new and was acquired by a fellow there who does civil war reinactments and gets tombstones for servicemen who served in the civil war. I don't believe he knew about the other one. Since Joel is my 2nd great grandfather, and he is buried next to more of our family in Twin Falls, I'm very confident that this is his last resting place. His death certificate indicates he died in Kimberly, Idaho, which is very close to Twin Falls.
Thank you for your attention, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate!
|Rick ||RE: SBLocke Grave|
You are very welcome, good luck in your search.
