Blatchley in Locust Hill Cemetery Kansas
Hi I saw you had a photo request for "J W Blatchley" in Locust Hill Cemetery, Rush Center, Kansas.

The problem report said "No listing of this person on cemetery records that are displayed at Locust Hill."

I thought it might help you to know there were two Blatchley's buried in Locust Hill per the cemetery directory (I photographed the directory).
Daniel and Ida Mae Blatchley buried in Lot 25.

Good Luck,

Blue Hill Kansas
Blue Hill was in southwestern Mitchell County, on the west side of the Blue Hills. In it's prime it was quite a town, a couple of stores, post office, creamery, millinery shop and more. The railroad passed it by and when that happened, the town began to die. All that is left of Blue Hill is the Methodist Church building, which is used once a year for a Memorial Day gathering.

Caroline Thompson in Hollidaysburg
There was a tombstone in 1930, when the Adam Holliday Chapter DAR walked the cemetery and recorded it (with a high rate of errors, unfortunately). Whether a readable stone exits today I do not know. There was a local lady who was attempting to photograph that cemetery, but I think she gave up because of so many unreadable and damaged stones.

Mike Berrell
Stretford Cemetery - PORRELLI

In order to find a grave a photo volunteer needs to know the grave ref. This can be obtained from Altrincham Crematorium office email:


Please see FAGs:
NOTE: Please contact the cemetery for plot information prior to making your photo request. Some cemeteries are now charging to look up plot location information, but they will usually provide the information free to family members.
NOTE: Many cemeteries are now asking that a relative of the deceased contact the cemetery to obtain plot, lot and grave location information, as well as inform the cemetery staff that a volunteer will be coming to take the photo of the grave marker. This helps with verifying that the deceased is buried there, makes it easier for the volunteer photographer to find the grave marker, and may help the photo volunteer gain permission to take the photo.

Kind regards,

Mike Berrell

RE: Mary Agnes C Baird
Aunt Agnes married (Uncle) John Henry McCallister and they didn't have any children.

*The gentleman from Ireland that gave me some family info also has some letters that were written by Baird family members and sent back to Ireland. Those are treasures! He told me about one and it was fun to hear how they described the Carthage area from back then.

RE: James Baird, Carthage, Il
My Aunt Agnes was the granddaughter of James and the daughter of Alexander. The Baird gentleman who gave me a lot of info actually lives in Ireland. I had Glasgow down first but he had records that showed the other town as the birth town. I can't remember his name now as it has been some time since we corresponded.

Sometimes family give the wrong info when the headstones are made up (found that in a couple of my own family). I was given the info on his birth and death from a family member who I trust. I am also related to the Bairds and have worked on their ancestry for awhile.

David Potts & Alice Croasdale
Memorial# 63486604 and # 63486782 – David & Alice (Croasdale) Potts did not have daughter Sarah; nor was a "Sarah" mentioned in his Will dated 13 Nov 1730, Proved 26 Nov 1730, Inventoried 4 Dec 1730, Will Book E page 142. ~~ Correct translation for “8th month" is October for the birth of Alice Croasdale; prior to Sept 1752 the 1st month of the year was March, 11th and 12th were Jan and Feb of the following year, creating the system of doubling dating the years. See Julian Calendar and Penn’s “Great Laws …” Unfortunately, people are using F-A-Gravefor their factual ancestry information and these two memorials are not correct.

RE: Mendenhall - Embree family
Unfortunately, I do not have any photos of Charles and Mary. I do, however, have a few of Joseph and Roseanna, and the house they lived in. Someone, like yourself, realized we were somewhat related and sent them. If you would like those, I would be glad to email them to you. Just let me know.

Capt. Mildred McAfee Horton
Thanks for sending the edit to add her rank. Don't know why I didn't think to add it originally.

By my grandpa's generation, the family had lost the knowledge of who exactly their McAfee ancestors were, save that they were from Kentucky. Several of them believed we were connected to the Parkville McAfees (Capt. McAfee's branch), who are descendants of the Mercer Co., KY, McAfees. When I started my family history search in the early 1990's, one of the first things I did was tackle this. That family is well documented, and I did not find a link to my line, which turned out to be from Garrard Co., KY, and probably NC before that. The McDuffie/Macfie DNA project shows, however, that our lines are closely connected and so my branch and the Mercer Co. McAfees likely had a common ancestor in Northern Ireland.

I was proud to serve both on active duty and in the Navy Reserves. The experience and opportunities have affected my whole life for the better.

Mildred McAfee Horton was a pioneer, and has a place in history even though Findagrave rejected designating her as a famous person.

RE: Alma (Rawls) Parkhill

No, I am not related to either. This whole endeavor started by researching Benitha Pointon - wife of Isaac. Benitha and Mary Abagail Cook Rawls are sisters. Benitha was married first to Franklin Sodders. They had two children. Benitha is buried in the Galum Presbyterian Cemetery in Perry County, Illinois. I entered most of that cemetery and my mother was a member of that church as a little girl. She maintained her membership there even after we moved. We are in Southern Illinois for a family reunion and was taking some more photos there until I got rained out. I do my best to link people to their spouses and parents - which means I have to do research. Yours is quite the fun family to research. I have suggested for most of the Rawls children of Rev. James Sherman Rawls and Mary Abagail Cook be linked to parents and spouse. It is always exciting to find as much info as there is on this family.

Blessings and Take Care

Harvey Burke at Forest Home Cemetery
Good morning Sir/Ma'am. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to contact Forest Home Cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) for your photo request(s), ask them whether or not there is a grave marker, and then either post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

Should you choose not to accept this mission, your photo request will most likely continue to go unfulfilled. This message will not self destruct in five seconds. Good luck! Ace

His memorial:

Forest Home is a massively humongous cemetery with well over 100,000 burials, and the information is vital in order to photograph a grave for you. Forest Home disavows all photo volunteers, refusing to aid them in finding graves, so your mission is indispensable and integral to helping fulfill your photo request.

From the Find A Grave Dossier: All personnel are advised that Find A Grave states it is the responsibility of the photo requestor to provide the grave plot (section and lot number) to assist the volunteer photographers.

Mission Success: Last year I successfully completed 200 photo missions at Forest Home Cemetery that had the grave location provided by the photo requestor. In just over a year I have successfully concluded over 1,400 photo missions with over 600 already successfully completed in 2014.

Mission Failure: Impossible
