RE: Thank You
Sadly it's a bit worse for wear. I had a survey of the Cemetery, otherwise I'd never have identified the right plot.

I was able to fill your photo request for Hannah Cornwell. However, the stone is in pretty bad shape and is very difficult to read, especially in the photo.

FYI, there are some pictures of Friern Road and a little information on the V2 strike that killed the Cornwells and Lomasses here: (scroll down to 1st November).

RE: Elenor Dotson
I'm a direct descendent of Elenor and Jacob.

I thought maybe the headstone had a number wrong. Let's say it's the 0. Maybe she was born in 1814 instead of 1804, since 04 is before Nathaniel was married to either Mary or Margaret. So, then I checked the nearest decade of Census I could find that listed names of household members....1880! In that Census, Elinor was married to Jacob and it says she was 76...which means the headstone was right. 1804.

So, that is confusing. Either Nathaniel was actually married 3 times and there was an even earlier wife, or Ms. Cornwall was married previously, and she brought Elinor into the marriage with her. Or, Elinor was a relative but not an offspring. It doesn't seem to have been terribly uncommon that the kids take up residence with a relative other than the parents...because of poverty, because of proximity to a school, or because the kid just likes the other relative better, or a parent dies and the remaining spouse can't take care of the kids. Other reasons abound, of course.

I'm going to look for more Censuses, but there isn't a lot of very specific information like from that time period.

RE: Elenor Dotson

These people think it's supposed to be 1808

I think you're going to end up being correct that her was mother was a Cornwell instead of a Miller.

I'll dig a little more.

Are we cousins? Who among them are you descended from?

Oooh! A family mystery!
Her headstone says born in 1804.

RE: Thank You
Hi Cindy,

Sorry I didn't put up the photos before. They were among random shots I took back in May whilst searching for requests at Camberwell and somehow failed to realise I'd found one of them! It wasn't until I scanned my photos for a new incoming request that I saw the Cornwells.

You'll see I have had the inscription and family links added. I'll leave you to do biographies if you wish, if only from the CWGC records. There is a bit of a mystery over Pauline Lomas's middle name. CWGC has it as Agnes, which was originally copied to Find A Grave, but I've had it changed to Elaine as on the stone as the rules say. There needs to be a note of the discrepancy on the memorial. I can't find her on FreeBMD to verify which is correct.

Camberwell (Old and New) are big places to look for other Cornwells, but if you have any dates of death, I'll look in the appropriate areas. Though with my proven inability to see names even if they're staring me in the face, I don't offer any guarantees!

Herschel Lewis
Good afternoon,
Greetings from warm 114 Arizona. I am researching the Gideon Lewis family of Morgan County IN. One of his sons was Hempstead Lewis, his son moved to Clark County ILL. I have found his son's grave and his wife Finer Lewis. They were married in Morgan County In in 1878 or 1879. They had 7 or 8 children; Effie, Eddie, Otis, Benjamin, Franklin, Glayds, and Jessie. I also believe his parents Hempstead (Hampstead) and his wife Margaret Flowers Lewis are buried in Clark County, Do you have any way to verify this information.
I do know that Herschel was born 15 May, 1859 and his wife Delphina Finer Powell was born 19 March, 1858. Some of their sons are buried in the same cemtery. Love genealogy research and all the excitement when finding something new every day.
Hope to hear from you soon. Have a great day Richard Lewis

This is a huge cemetery. I am probably going to be there for a funeral in August - I have a map of the cemetery but unless you have a location it will be impossible to fill any requests

Frank and Martha Cornwell
I believe these 2 people were married, if that is correct I have a photo of both plaques together. If you would like me to add this please let me know.

Hi Cindy,
I was at the Milldale Cemetery yesterday evening. The condition of the cemetery is very overgrown and there are very few stones and markers. I was looking for four of my own relatives, sadly 90% of the stones are just field stones. Some have been carved by hand with initials or dates but again very few. I didn't find any Cornwells marked.

RE: Thank You
Cindy, It was our pleasure!

I would like to know what kin you are. Donna Cornwell Craig was my husbands grandmother. We have been searching for where Matthew H Cornwell was buried no one in the family knows. We walked all over New Cambria Grave yard and didn't come up with anything.

RE: Thank You
The lot is pretty large and it includes the other stones that just have the initials on them. MAM, WEC, MCT, CIC, & NLC are there with a few other stones, and I thought that the CIC might be his. After checking though, I saw that his middle initial was not an I. Maybe his stone was taken by someone or one was never put in for him. It is a mystery.

Hi Cindy,
I left a message for you on your page. There was no stone for Carlton, but there was the Cornwell surname embedded in the step that led up to the lot. The photo is of the step.

I put up the photo of the name on the steps of the Cornwell Lot at Tulocay Cemetery. There was no marker at his gravesite.

Elenor Dotson
Hi Cindy,
I have seen that you submitted an edit to my memorial for Elenor "Nellie" Dotson. The information I have is that she was indeed the child of Margaret Miller Foster, the 1st wife of Nathaniel Foster. You think she was a daughter of the 2nd marriage to Mary Cromwell, according to the edit. I have to ask what your source is, since it conflicts with mine.

Huldah Cornwell
I had actually thought I'd already posted that one; I am doing a general survey of this cemetery. She had been incorrectly categorized in the cemetery records as Huldah Sprague, her maiden name, but I'd foiled the grave and found the correct information. Since this is part of a general survey, I also have no particular attachment to this memorial. If you would like it transferred to you, let me know.

RE: Thank You
I am glad that I was able to help. I hope that the quality is alright - I found the picture online at the Forest Hill Cemetery site, all I did was to download the picture and upload it to find a grave. here is the link to it.

If you would like a better picture just let me know I can go out and try to take a better picture.
