RE: Robert L. Hess
Wow, I just looked at that one. I don't know how you ever found it. Isn't that sad? The condition of so many of our older headstones is really a shame. The deepest one I ever located (with help from the groundskeepers) was about 10 inches below the surface. The stone was from the 1930's and was in perfect condition. When we peeled off a layer of clay, the clay contained an exact imprint of the inscription on the stone! The clay must have preserved it. It was a red granite stone, and those usually don't stand the test of time, especially the very speckled ones, which become hard to read rather quickly.

Thanks for sharing that with me.

RE: George Washington Bell
Well, I've learned another lesson. Before I even suggest that someone order a record, have them ask at the office, or I will ask on their behalf. I usually think about that first, but I work at a very busy law office and so during the weekdays, I'm wrapped up in my work and sometimes I don't think of all possibilities. And I only go and get photos on the weekends. Sorry you had to waste your money.

Whenever I find that a grave is unmarked, and have to report that news back to the requester, I feel disappointed. But I've had a couple of people tell me that they were going to get the family together and pitch in and buy a marker, so some good comes from it. It is getting very expense to buy a headstone these days. AND, if you buy from an "outside vendor" the cemetery will still charge you a "setting fee" which is usually quite high. Guess they gotta make their money any way they can!

Shawn, if you need anything else here in Inglewood, just let me know.

Best regards,

Hi Shawn. Well, if he is in fact buried in lot 81 of Heather Plot, next to Leonard and Lela, then his grave is unmarked. I am uploading a photo which shows the spot. I did not get a chance to ask at the office if there is supposed to be a marker, so you might want to call them to confirm. There is always a chance that it is buried under the sod. Let me know if you find out anything. If there is supposed to be one, I can have them unbury it, and get an updated photo.

Best regards,

RE: Mamie Virginia
No, I'm not related (to my knowledge). I simply try to leave a flower for each new Zinn memorial on FindAGrave. Sorry, wish I could help you.

Hi Shawn. Can you elaborate on "non-cemetery burial"? If he was buried on private property, can you disclose where that property is? Usually on this site, a non-cemetery burial is on private property and there is no official "name" for a cemetery, but the person who adds this info will generally state where the property is located. The term "non-cemetery" is most often used when people enter pet burials (such as back yard, etc.)

Obedience Miles Curtis Memorial #68296826
Looking for info on Obedience Miles Curtis. Was she the Obedience 1st married to Benjamin Chaplin. I have a record of Mrs O. Chaplin Marrying a Deacon Curtis of Paris, NY in November, 1821. Could this be her? I noticed in the memorial for her sister,Betsey, that she had named an infant "Chaplin".

RE: Marie MacFarlane
That would be great. Whatever is says under "disposition of remains" is what we'll go by. Most of the time they accurately give the name of the cemetery, but sometimes families change their minds. I had an aunt, my dad's half-sister, whom I ordered the death certificate to find out where she was. When it arrived, I got the name of the cemetery and called them to see if she was there and they said no. Her ex-husband was there, buried with his second wife, and not my aunt. Sometimes you just end up with a brick wall.

Good luck. Let me know what you find out.


PS - So I take it George is not buried with his wife?
