RE: Absolom David Taylor
Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you but I didn't realize I had all these messages until today... He was my Great-Grandfather but unfortunately I live in Virginia so I'm too far away to actually take care of his gravesite. I sincerely appreciate that you are doing so.
Regards, Patricia MacMillan

RE: Sarah Palmer
Usually the edit will be done over night. I think this is new since Ancestry bought Find a Grave. I have made a note to search for your stone, and if you need any others please just let me know.

RE: Sarah Palmer
You can go to edit and add any info you would like. Mary Edmonds will not answer anyone's requests. The cemetery book shows that Sarah and Thomas either share a stone or are buried next each other. But since the book shows no death date he might be buried else where. If you can wait until July when I am home next I will be happy to take your photos for you.

Ruth, the burial site I found was not the Senior Jonathan Heacock Jr. md to Rebecca R. Roberts, but his son, Jonathan Heacock Jr. md. to Rebecca J. Eavenson/Iverson.

Jonathan Heacock
As you can see by the message I left on Rebecca, that I have seen his grave, and confirm that it is the only Heacock I found in the cemetery.

Ancestry has been placing Quaker Meeting Records on-line. This one confirms the burial of several of our relatives in the Darby FBG.

Beau (my son) and I (Doni) visited gravesite in Aug 88. Rebecca and her husband, Jonathan, are the only direct HEACOCKS in cemetery with headstones. They are buried in the rear of the cemetery next to the fence.

I thought you'd like to know I saw their headstones. I'm sure I took a photograph, but it's long gone, or maybe in a box somewhere. Also, their headstone were deep in the ground.

Sincerely, Doni

It is sad that they can't wait until they are buried. I had the same thing happen when my father died. Linda Y should transfer your Uncle Bud To you. Bill

Just wanted to let you know that I have added a photo to Andrew's memorial, # 53486484. If there are other memorials in this cemetery in which you have an interest, I will be adding more photos in the coming days.

(Re 2 Memorials #98373543 & #34731813

I just forwarded a document to your email, It is hard to read, I apologize for that :)

You had declined corrections that I had sent to you, so I wanted you to see the document so you could see the source of my request.

Thanks so much, and if you decide that this still isn't the right Valentine Martins then just discard the document.

Thanks so much again,

RE: Ruth Nolan Sawyer & George Sawyer
Happy to help. I had also taken pictures of several Gove headstones while I was there, and I noticed you had many of that family. Please look through those Gove memorials I entered and see if there are any family memorials you wish to have. Thanks, Bill and April

RE: William Martin Cemetery
I am going down there in about 2 weeks and will take more pictures then. I am having a small sign made to put on the fence so it can be located. I think the young lady who has been working on the grounds said they have identified about 28 stones. So excited to go see it.

Wm Martin cemetery
Ruth, I have located the cemetery through some wonderful people who live near by. I contacted the county assessor who put on to a map that you could use coordinates to find places. through that I got 2 names. I called 1 and she gave me the name of her niece who lives on the road w here the cemetery is. She tried to get hold of the man she thought owned the property. She got into it so much that she started looking for it. She and a friend found it and even started cleaning it up. She has also started taking pictures. Can you imagine!!! A total stranger helping me out. It is in worse shape that when I saw it a few years back. But she is trying to get it at least passable. We have permission to go on the property too.

RE: Eliza & Nancy Martin
My cousin and I found it a few years back. It is on private property and it is in terrible shape. I regret I didn't take more pictures. I am go ing back for a Draffen reunion in Aug and my uncle and I are hoping to find who has the property and go back. It is hard to see and we walked through a cow pasture to get to i t. If I am able I will take a picture of every stone. I plan to have stuff t o clean stone first and hopefully I can get a good record. I found a John T who has not been listed on the Martin records so I added him. Took some research to find him as the son of Daniel Boone Martin and Nancy. Wish me luck.

Thank you so much for sponsoring Leah.
Are you related?

Did I already answer you?

If not, she was my step dad's mother. He was [Frederick] Tennis Bowles, and went by Tennis. Leah lived with us a few years when I was in high school.
Let me know your connection also.

Thank you, Ruth. That is the same information I was given. My grandfather actually used to mow that cemetery. His parents are buried there. There was a fire that burned down the Christian Church when I was a child and he was so distraught at the thought that his mower had somehow sparked the fire. Again, thank you.

Hi Ruth,

I find this posted on the page for Mary MARTIN:

"Cemetery reports; Although listed in the cemetery book, no stone for Mary Martin was found. Some stones are obviously missing."

Does someone indeed possess the church records for Pisgah Christian Church Cemetery? I have been trying to track those down for years. I believe there is also a grave for James MARTIN (b. 1799, d. 1852) in that cemetery (I remember it from being there as a child as the birth year of 1799 particularly stuck in my mind). The stone is no longer there. I would be very interested to know that he is indeed buried there as I remember. Thank you.
