I never referred to Waugh in God's Acre. Yes, I am talking about the one listed in Oakdale Baptist.

I deleted mine but added my photo to the other because I thought it was slightly better coloring. Thx for pointing out the duplicate.

Hannah's Chapel

Unfortunately there are no records. In fact the city does not know who owns the cemetery. They found that fact out several years ago when there was some road improvement and wanted to send the bill to the owner. That is when the city found out no owner listed.

Some family members mow and keep it picked up. Every time I have been out there , the cemetery is mowed. Although it does need other maintance - like sunken graves filled in.

There are many graves that are unmarked and several funeral home markers that are illegible. My suggestion would be to contact Hargett Funeral home and see if they have any records. They are a African American funeral home and Hannah's Chapel is generally an AA cemetery.

Sorry I can't be of any more help. I am planning to go out again and see if I can read a couple of stones with foil. The stones are almost impossible to read.

Hannah's Chapel
I have taken photos of all the readable stones at Hannah's Chapel. There are many unmarked graves or the funeral home marker are unreadable. There are a couple of stones that I can't quite make out the words. I may have to use foil.

This cemetery is not owned by anyone. There was a church may years ago- I believe it was torn down in the late 60's at least that is what another Find A Grave member remembers.

Family members do mow and trim, but otherwise it is not maintained.

Sorry I can be of more help.

I have been slammed with moving, babysitting, working, etc. and haven't done anything with genealogy. I hope to get back to it in the next few months. Anything new on your end?

RE: Harmony
Apparently the original cemetery wasn't kept up so I think it was the government, I'm not sure, that arranged for some 37,000 remains to be moved. The National Harmony Cemetery has her listed in their record. I just called and confirmed, the Arthur Pannell was buried in 1974 but that's all they have and that he was in a wooden box(?)and he was 62.

The Tilghman bench marker reads:

Nathan L Sr. Ruth E.
May 31, 1913 Nov 28, 1919
Dec 28, 1974 Sep 19, 1996

Nathan L. Jr.
May 26, 1937
Apr 3, 1993

Jean E. Jeanette A.
Feb 12, 1940 Jan 7, 1954
May 31, 2012 Jul 24, 1998

This is the way they appeared on the marker. If you want to add them to the cemetery I'll add the picture. Are you aware that this cemetery has only existed since 1957, but 37,000 remains were moved from an old Harmony cemetery to this cemetery in 1959.

Francis and Arthur Pannell
I went to National Harmony Cemetery and I found where Francis was suppose to be buried but the marker was not there, I had one of the councilors come out and verify the location. No explanation. Actually, the only marker in the area was a lot marker for 'Coleman and Liverpool'
There is a bench in the section across from the Garden of Tranquility, where William is buried, for the Tilghman family. That marker list Nathan Sr and Jr, Ruth, Jean and Jeanette, I have a picture and the dates on the marker if you are interested. I wasn't sure.

RE: Celie Gore
Thanks for the reply. Celie or Celia Gore that is my descendant married Jacob W Pettry. They had a daughter named "Mattie" Araminta Pettry. She married a James Anderson Jarrell Sr. They had a son James Anderson Jarrell Jr. I wont go into any more detail, but check out the Jarrell's that I have entered and see if any of those are your kin. I do my research in the Dry Creek, Horse Creek, Rock Creek, Naoma, Saxon, and Peach Tree areas. If you find any and need links I will do so, or I will turn over to you any that are your kin.

They have to be different people. My Grandmother Dora Gore died in 1939. I have visited her grave many times at Haddleton.

RE: John Henry Gore
I will just delete my entry. All my info came from an uncle that did a lot of research in the early 80s & talked to people at that time had some connection to the ones he was researching.

John Henry Gore
I got your message about John Henry Gore. It is not the same Gore I have listed whose name is
John McHenry Gore.
I think almost all the Gore's in my family are buried in Boone County.

Ardelia's tombstone pic
You are welcome. I grew up right across from that cemetary and it was no problem getting a pic of it. The stone is in great shape. I have did quite abit of research on the Jarrell side. Most of my work has been with them. I have a descendant that was a Gore as well. Her name was Celie Gore. I have not found her stone.

You are so welcome. Greenlawn Cemetery is so big, it is impossible to locate a grave without knowing the section, ect. So, I take pictures of one section at a time and there are usually at least one or two requests that get fulfilled that way.

Added by Rachel's mom on Apr 06, 2013 6:23 PM

Cremation with burial. Absoutley, if you are close by you should ride through Floral Gardens , they have a bunch of small tombstone like monuments for urns. Other cemeteries have buildings were urns are placed in small drawer like areas. Some people just bury the urn and remains in the grave with a loved one. There are all kind of ways. In several parts of Europe , the remains of loved ones are buried by trees with a plaque on the tree with the person's name.

Hi - double checked- obituary said Hannah's Chapel, but her death certificate says cremation with burial at Westminster Gardens. I have made the corrections. Thanks for letting me know.

Greensboro Record was the name of the afternoon newspaper in Greensboro. Several years ago it mergered with the Greensboro Daily news so now the paper is the Greensboro News and Record. I am working with obituaries I found through I have added 15 names to Hannah's Chapel and have at least 10 more to add. It is sad, but all of them are unmarked as I have been out there several times trying to find other headstones.
