Richard Whitaker
I have attempted to find Richard Whitaker on more than one occasion. On this last attempt, I tried to pinpoint the actual plot or space he was buried. Cemetery record shows him to be in Sec. C, Row 40, Space 7. This needs clarification:

There is a large Whitaker plot in this section. It has a huge stone obelisk type monument with a broad 4 corner base and has some markings on each side. Three of the sides have Whitaker names and the fourth side has the Shackelford surname. All around the monument are individual stones with names on them.

I randomly checked a Whitaker name from the Grove Hill database in order to see if I had the correct plot. Kate was located in the same section, Row 40, Space 10. Space #9 belongs to Henrietta Ormsby Whitaker, wife of Walter C. Space #8 belongs to General Walter Chiles Whitaker himself. There is no official stone for #7 that we can see. I am talking about the flat rectangular individual stones as seen in the photo. The last space #6 sits to the other side of the general (farthest left) and it belongs to his other wife, Lizzie Dickerson Whitaker and it is a taller tombstone. All the other stones completely around the center obelisk can be identified, but none of them are Richard.

Check out the photo. The 4 stones sitting in the forefront are supposed to belong to Annie, Henry, Sue, Ernest, and Estelle. The only problem here is that there are not 5 markers. There are only 4. As best as I can determine, Estelle and Richard do not offically have markers in this cemetery. I just know they are supposed to be at this location with the rest of the family. Forgive me for posting this photo, but there is no other one available anywhere here to fulfill this request. We can account for all the names, but not the actual markers.

Holler my way anytime at all if I can be of further assistance....

My wife and I were visiting her relatives graves and I had a list of photo requests. We live in the area and have a hobby of looking thru cemeteries.

RE: Rebecca Ann Green Foote
Hi Joe. Thanks for finding both of the burial locations. I saw that you made a memorial for a TJ Green but I did not see a date of death so I was not sure if by chance when you were reading the records for the plots that the L might have looked like a T. I know I have a heck of a time transcribing handwritten records from that time. I think the William Green you found might be Rebecca and Leland's son. I was hoping maybe you could help point me in the right direction of who to contact to get records for those three burials? Thanks again for your help!

Rebecca Ann Green Foote
Thanks so much for looking up the burial site for Rebecca. Her husband passed many years before her. His name was Leland Jackson Green and he was born around 1848 and died Dec 28, 1903. I was hoping you could find his burial site as well since I don't know where he was buried. I do believe he died in Winfield. Thanks again for helping me with my research!

Dear Mr. Chrisman,

I noticed you left a memorial on John A Beltz's find a grave.

I was wondering if you are related to him?

I have reason to believe he is my 2nd Great Grand father.

Sincerely,
Beth Wilson

RE: Philip Werle
Yes, Adolph Werle was the eldest child of Philip and Augusta. He was born April 28, 1878 in Milwaukee, WI. He left home at age 23 and as far as I can tell he moved to Kansas at some point before WWI and maried Clara Gastil, who had 2 daugters, Fern and Carrie Gastil. They all lived together in Crowly County, KS, according to the 1920 Federal Census. (If this is the same Adolph H Werle)

Hi Joe,
I have corrected the name of Jethro's father to James. Not sure why I had it listed as John R. Cochran.

Thanks for the heads up.

Take care

I have linked Lelia to Edward but I cannot link Bessie and Lewis as I did not put in their memorial. Judy Mayfield put them in. You will have to ask her to link them.

Please contact me asap regarding your memorial for Isaac Chrisman. Are you aware that Elizabeth Stephens Chrisman Dick was connected to this Isaac Stephens. I may need you help to convince the maker of erroneous memorial of the facts.

RE: Missouri Chrismans
I have actually done the same thing on a couple of my memorials. You want the connection between generations to be there. On mine, I state that I'm not positive they are buried there and I'm still researching. I also have a couple of ancestors that were (a) killed by Indians and (b) murdered by "Bushwhackers" in the Civil War, so will never know where they are. We do the best we can with the info we have!

Missouri Chrismans
Hello Joe,

Thank you for adding the memorials for Jacob and Magdelena. I am descended from Jacob/Isaac/Isaac Jr./Gilbert/James/Mary. Isaac, Jr. and his son Gilbert came to Missouri from Virginia. Somewhere along the line the spelling changed to Crismon. Mary Crismon was my great-grandmother. I too was thrilled to hear Tim McGraw describing the same ancestry as me!! I hope to come to Virginia sometime soon and explore all the Chrisman sites.
