Wow! Same names other than middle initials, same year of death in same cemetery - but oviously different people born decades apart. My bad.

RE: Mary Hannemann
The info for Mary on states that she was buried in Forest Park, Illinois, not Forest Home Cemetery.

I looked at the burials for December 1928 for Forest Home (and Waldheim German) Cemetery, and I did not see her name listed.

There are three other major cemeteries in Forest Park: Concordia, Waldheim Jewish, and Woodlawn. If you contact them hopefully they can tell you if she is buried at one of them.

Sometimes records are missing, so you can also check with Forest Home at 773-287-0772. This cemetery does not assist volunteer photographers so the only way to know if she is actually buried here is to contact the office. Since this cemetery has over 150,000 burials it is nearly impossible to fulfill a photo request without the burial plot.

RE: Mary Hannemann
Please contact the cemetery to obtain the burial plot (Section and Lot numbers). This cemetery does not help photo volunteers.

Phone: 773-287-0772

Most of the reason that there are over 300 unfilled photo requests at the cemetery is that the volunteer photographers cannot obtain the burial plots.

Hardly anyone photographers at this cemetery because they choose to not be helpful to those of us seeking to help you and other photo requestors. I still photograph here, but I cannot get the plot myself.

Thank you! Ace

It looks as though another contributor has entered in a duplicate entry on Alice Glover. Here is the link:
She has some of the information wrong (ie BD) but enough to see it is the same person. I am contacting you (instead of contributor Linda) because I am very familiar with your work and trust your findings. She does have more info about Alice's 2nd husband William Vestel and the children from that marriage.
Thank you!

The list of sources they supply for each entry is really helpful. Good luck in your research.

John Wilde at Wherwell
There are multiple published accounts of his burial at Wherwell. Try looking him up in the incredibly useful Dictionary of National Biography, available at most libraries and online. I've seen at least two other books myself that confirm his burial there.

Susan Forbes 100085384
I believe it is probable that according to her memorial #100085384, Susan Forbes is buried in the wrong cemetery. I believe the correct cemetery would be the Stokely Cemetery in Newland, Pasquotank County as all available evidence would indicate this. Her death certificate states she was living in Newland Township at the time of her death and only that she was to be buried in the "Stokly" Cemetery.In the 1920 Pasquotank Census, she is living in the household of a cousin, W. James Gregory, in Newland (This Gregory line goes back to Rhoda Stokely, dt. of Isaac Stokely and Lydia Albertson, who m. Isaac B. Gregory.) William James Gregory is buried in the Stokely Cemetery in Newland as well as his wife, Anna Turner Gregory. It would stand to reason, since she had no other family, that she would be buried in the cemetery with her relatives.

RE: Livengood inscription
Hi...Thank you for your response.
I sent out quite a few edits about these old inscriptions, and another Find A Grave contributor seems interested in more info. So I am going to scan the article tonight and if you would like to have copies of the 7 pages, let me know. I am sorry but the article does not feature individual tombstone pictures, but it is very interesting nonetheless, especially if you might know these western Pa. cemeteries.

RE: Anna Jones Jobes
The family knew she was only a half sister. She is listed as Anna Marie Patten in the Owen Davis Family bible. My grandmother told me that her grandmother Sarah Davis Jones, after her parents died worked for the Patten Family as a house keeper. She became pregnant with Anna by their son Henry. 6 months before Anna was born Henry left for the Civil War and was in the 85th G company. That just so happened to be the same Jesse Jones Was in. After the war Jesse married Sarah.

Hi Could you please make a change on the name of the father for Anna Jones Jobes? She was the Illigt. daughter of Sarah Davis Jones and Henry Bowel Patton. His #50341989. Sarah had Anna before she was married to Jesse E. Jones.

RE: Jane Buckingham
"Parish Records" usually indicate the Parish Church as place of burial. Other Church's are in the town but I don't know if they had their own private ground for burial's, or if there was another 'community' ground. You could try contacting the Church Warden or Town Council who should have the information. St M/M ground has been cleared of all headstones, a handful are in places along the walled paths(3 of these are visable on one of the Church photo's), all the rest have been chopped at the inscriptions and laid on grassland behind the Church. ALL headstones have been photographed, with nothing pre 1800.
