Essie Cundiff photo request I found an obituary on Essie and added it to her listing. She is memorial #56877949. She was the daughter of John and Emma Ritz; sister of Gladis Ritz, also buried in this cemetery. Hope that helps some.
RE: Cundiff No, I'm sorry that I have no other info on the Cundiffs in Oak Ridge. I have been photographing that huge cemetery for 3 years now but have no other info other than what I find on the records or on the tombstones. I did find it interesting that Oak Ridge records do not list Benjamin in 1918. Mina is there. If I were you, I'd call the cemetery to confirm his burial (217-789-2340)..quite unusual to not be on the records and I even checked all through March and April with no results.
Also, Block 21 is a section of mostly single graves so it's quite possible that Mina is there by herself. I did not have a photo of any Cundiffs (including Essie, the one you requested) in Block 21. It's possible I missed them, tho, but there are tons of unmarked graves in that Block. Sorry I could not be more help!
Richard Cundiff A couple of days ago you sent me a message asking about the year of birth for Richard Cundiff. I had to enlarge the picture but the date actually reads 1837. I also corrected this date on the memorial.
Cundiff... Hello, Thanks for the information. Is Willie buried in Rolling Fork also? I don't need the death certficate, but if you have the birth and death dates for Eliza, I'll be glad to add them to her memorial. Thanks, Tammy
RE: Wm. L. Carder I TOOK THIS PICTURE BECAUSE IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL OLD STONE IN A BEAUTIFUL OLD CEMETERY IN THIS AREA. SORRY, BUT I HAVE NO FURTHER INFORMATION. ANYTHING ELSE THAT I CAN HELP WITH....LET ME KNOW. GAIL
RE: Ridge Cemetery Ridge Cemetery is in Lakewood (outshirts) and is in Cold Spring Township. There is only one Ridge Cemetery aka Williamsburg Hill Cemetery. Guess the only way to correct this matter is to contact the person(s) managing the two cemeteries and combine them.
RE: Howards No problem, am glad it was helpful. If you are stuck anywhere, just let me know and perhaps I can help. I've done quite a lot of research on the Howards in that area. Also, you should look for the Howard genealogy by Anna Hamilton - it's quite a useful tool!
