I cannot imagine where this "unmarked" grave might be located. There are public roads on two sides of the churchyard with very narrow grass verges, a farm on another side, and a private residence on the other. While the Telegraph article mentioned visiting the area, it gave no indication of whether or not the reporter found the grave.
It is a 20mile round trip to Little Badminton, so I will only visit again if I have good directions and a fighting chance of finding any graves.
I looked at the list of inscriptions that Alf Beard had transcribed. I noted that in some cases, additional information appeared in his lists that were not on the gravestones, while in others, verses had been omitted. I also wondered why he was so selective in the graves that he transcribed as I believe that there are many more that are clearly legible that do not appear on his list. His numbering system does seem to be arbitrary and does not appear to be of much help in locating any of the graves.

Can you or Alf Beard tell me exactly where to look for this grave. I'm afraid that this is another one that is being elusive.

I have uploaded photos for Vere & Diana, but there appear to be some anomalies in the information. Both inscriptions indicate that Vere was the 14th Earl of Westmorland (without a second 'E') rather than a Duke, and it states that he was born on 15th rather than 25th. I will create the other three entries shortly.

Good News. I managed to get in touch with a very helpful lady who is the secretary to the Badminton Estate. She confirmed that the Fanes are indeed buried at Little Badminton and told me exactly where to find the graves. The reason that I could not find them when I first visited the Cemetery was because they have horizontal stones and are located beneath a large lime tree which means that they were covered with sticky sap, moss, and other wind-blown debris. It took some effort, but I have cleaned them up and will upload photos in the next few days. I also found three other members of the Westmorland clan close by, and will add their details and photos as well.

The other church of St Michaels and All Saints is a private church in the grounds of Badminton House owned by the Duke of Beaufort. It is not normally open to the general public.

Thank you for your SACs' for her memorial page.
However, her maiden name IS "Meeker" not "Forgan" as you suggested, so I have declined that SAC. See info. & sources I added to her bio page.
Could you provide me with a source for her death place ? - the only mention of death is SSDI but that is not proof of death place only last residence & where the SSN was issued. So I am leaving her death place as "United States" for now but manually changing her birth place to Chicago.

Hi hi, Thank you again for all your lovely Edits. However, your Edit for Jane "Jennie" Thomas gave Morgan as her maiden name. My research says it should be Madigan.
Best wishes and Bless you for all your work.

|Raul N. Longoria||RE: Daniel V. Pena|
I want to give you a little more explanation regarding the name. As you probably know the Spanish custom was to state a person's name as [Given Name] [Paternal Surname] [Maternal Surname].
Daniel's mother was named Arcadia Pena; hence, he gave his name as Daniel Villarreal Pena. The complication arose when the name was sometimes shortened by converting the paternal surname to an initial only, creating the impression that the middle initial was for a second given name and that the paternal surname was the last name listed. I have no logical explanation as to why they did this. Perhaps Daniel was only following the example of his father, Celso Villarreal Ramirez, whose own gravestone gives his name as Celso V. Ramirez. (Celso was my maternal great-grandfather.)
I offer this explanation in case you should come across other similar apparent inconsistencies in your work.

Thanks for the update. I am going to post the corrections in the biography part of the memorial. The picture of the death certificate only has the date of the death and not the birth. Are you related? That death certificate was the poorest documentation I have ever seen in my ancestry searches. If you would like I can transfer so you can add additional info if this is your family member. They sure got the dates way off on this one, which happens sometimes.
Thank and get back with me.

|Raul N. Longoria||RE: Daniel V. Pena|
Thank you for deleting his interment in the Longoria cemetery.
I apologize for my poor job in explaining the situation. The information you had on him was correct. The problem was that there are four different Longoria cemeteries in the immediate area of southern Brooks County. Unfortunately, many obituaries and death certificates just say that the deceased was buried in the "Longoria cemetery" without specifying which of the four cemeteries it is. The cemetery shown on historical maps is referred to as the "Longoria cemetery" and is the one started by my grandfather Eugenio Longoria. San Mateo was started by Mateo Longoria, my grandfather's younger brother, and is about a half-mile east of the official "Longoria cemetery". So, yes Daniel Villarreal was buried in a Longoria cemetery in Brooks County, but it was not the official "Longoria Cemetery" but the San Mateo Cemetery.

|Raul N. Longoria||Memorial for Daniel Villarreal Pena|
Daniel Villarreal Pena is not buried in the Longoria Cemetery in Brooks County, Texas; he is buried in the nearby San Mateo Cemetery,
There is already a memorial for Daniel Villarreal at the San Mateo Cemetery, so this memorial should either be deleted or merged with the existing one at San Mateo.

In Pleasant Mound Cemetery. Just heard the story of this little girl from someone in the family - and how ironic we found her today - only a month after she was put on Findagrave.com. We just love this site and the people who are devoted to putting information online so we can find our relatives. Thanks Ash. Tex-Ranch on findagrave.com

I literally JUST made that page for Chief Blackbear has a gift for his son. While I was cropping pictures you added one, so I was curious how you knew I had added the page so quickly, and thought perhaps you were related since you added the photo.
