RE: Chesterville Presbyterian Cemetery
Good questions. I'll try to be as concise as possible in the answers. This is our "favorite" cemetery to work in.

Those will be the actual burial sites in CPC. That was the original burying ground for the Presbyterians in the area (the majority of settlers for generations).

FIY -- There was a Methodist burying ground in Chesterville, but it's been destroyed by the township. Since your people are at CPC and MG, they will not have been in that cemetery, so I would disregard it in your searching. Besides which, the only burial records still existing are what's been input on FindAGrave from the 1990s cemetery transcription books.

Back to CPC. There are no records for this burying ground. The church is nearly defunct and doesn't even have a mailing address for contact (we've tried). The cemetery is in bad shape and was QUITE neglected for a long time. They mow it, but that's it. It's a very boggy cemetery (standing water in the center), and the mud makes it unworkable when we have a rainy spell. We worked for a whole day just trying to uncover the downed stones in the fencerow on the bank. I'd venture to say that more than half of the stones are missing. The remaining ones are most often in very poor shape. It's been a challenge, to say the least. What's been put up on FindAGrave is all that remains to be read, and the whole of it has been photographed.

Maple Grove was opened later than the others and is not affiliated with any church. It quickly became the main burying ground for this area. If you were buried in CPC, your descendants were buried in MG.

By the time of the MG burials, CPC was in bad shape. Many (if not most) of the families, when they placed their new and larger monuments at MP, put CENOTAPHS on them for their family members who were buried at CPC. I know of no actual body transfers. The names at MG will be just Memorials for the family's loved ones buried at CPC. I've requested that the owner of Samuel & Nancy McNay at MG mark the FindAGrave memorials as Cenotaphs.

Is your gal any relation to the Hannah McNay who married William McGaughy? They were Presbyterians, and the McGaughy name was quite a prominent one.

Don't hesitate to ask more questions. Hope this helps.

RE: Austin Pharis
I much appreciate that your sharp eye caught my little boo-boo. So, to answer your question, yes, both Austin Pharis and his wife are interred in Riverview Abbey Mausoleum.

The quality of the photo I posted of the vault marker is just so-so, but it was the best I could do considering the vault is near the top of a very high ceiling.

Thanks again!

RE: Ashton-on-Lyne
I don't know and I cannot seem to find anything on line about it. I have lived in the area all my life and was a child in the 60's. I can remember going past St Peter's on the bus when the graveyard was still there. Through the eyes of a child it looked like the scariest most overgrown place on earth and it used to bother me having to go past it. When it all got landscaped it looked so much better but obviously there is a massive chunk of history gone. You could try writing to the church I suppose

Can you tell me where the maiden surname, Brownbeck, shown for this person, came from? This memorial is listed as a source for Elizabeth Buckwalter Gabel, but Buckwalter and Brownback are different families.

RE: Davis photos and Krebs
Hi Martha,

You're very welcome. Always happy when we can help someone with their photo requests. Fortunately the marker for the Davis family was in very good shape. So many times the older ones are not. Also, it was fortunate that this marker had not fallen over, too many in this cemetery have. It is a very hilly cemetery and in some places the hills are very steep. Some of the large heavy stones on the hills, have fallen over as they shifted and became top heavy. Happily, the marker you requested a photo of was not one of them.
Have a great day.

RE: Martha Sautter
Once I looked on the Billion Graves site I discovered right away why I couldn't find the headstone for Orlena Pinkston. She is in the section of the cemetery called Palm Terrace. I had the map they gave me and had no luck finding for her stone. It turns out she is in the area called Palm Terrace extension once I got the right map for the correct section it was a piece of cake to find her headstone. I wish I could have found her husband.

RE: Martha Sautter
I was given the plot information for Olena Pinkston and was told they thought there was a headstone for her. However, I searched for quite some time and didn't find a headstone. I plan on going back today to verify the plot area and number and if necessary ask for help locating it. The location markers for this cemetery are few and far between in some areas and often not easily found. I haven't given up on her yet. They told me they didn't have a listing for James Pinkston, but I will check that again too. I showed up on a busy day when they were short staffed. They may have made a mistake.

I wanted to let you know that I took the pictures several days ago (after it stopped raining), but my first attempts at getting them uploaded have not succeeded. I am hoping to get the pictures up later today.

Thank you for your patience!

RE: Callie Brooks
Thanks for your prompt reply. I remember Aunt Ida speaking of her sister Florence often. Ida did not buy the gravestone for Callie. I believe her Mother Margaret Elizabeth Brooks bought the cemetery lot, I don't know about the gravestone. I think her father is Willis Brooks and that she may be Marion Brooks sister but haven't been able to prove it.
Yes, Laura is my grandmother and I have never been able to find her grave. I so wanted to find it before Mother passed away. I have a death certicate but that is no help. Are you related to Aunt Florence's daughter Faith? She called my mother one time when she was at work in the Post Office and was too busy to talk at the time. She lost the telephone # for Faith and she always felt so bad about not getting back to her.
Thanks for your help. I will try to see who set up the memorial for Callie.

You are so welcome for the transfer. I see you already have made the changes.

Elisha Williamson
I was going through my email and saw the suggestion you made regarding Elisha back in August. I am so sorry that I didn't get back to you. I have no idea about the discrepancy between his death certificate and his headstone. Since I am not related, I'll transfer to you for you to manage.
