RE: Florida Revolutionary War Patriots Many years ago, I made a list of all the DAR patriots that were buried in FL....I think it was 33. One name in the NDAR Patriot's Index was listed because his grave had been marked but no one had joined DAR using him as a patriot. He name was removed from the index when the marker was "stolen" and later some years, his grave was remarked. Since the "33", I have learned of patriots who are buried in FL that DAR doesn't know about...2 or 3 or 4.
Another patriot's grave is now under a driveway in a subdivision in north Jacksonville with the old markers in a pile in the marsh.
My local DAR chapter will be putting a marker in the Veteran's Park listing all 5 patriots buried in Nassau County. We know of 3 of the graves and they have been marked individually. The chapter decided on putting a public marker downtown to education all about these fine men. The service with be a 1 PM Veterans Day 2015 located on Amelia Island, Atlantic Ave.
I need to revisit my collection of Revolutionary Patriots in FL as it has been some time since I did that project.
Ashland Cemetery, Ohio I wonder if I may have your permission to use your cemetery photo on my family website. Check it out at http://freienmuth-shortridge.com/ernst/buchheim-cemeteries.html. This is how I'd be using the photos and obituaries I find on Find A Grave, with 'used with permission' in the caption.
Albert Harris, Mt. Auburn Cemetery #137519948 DeCody, Thank you very much for your interest in Albert. I received your edits, revisited Albert's memorial, and remember while at the cemetery about the large Harris monument, then seeing only his headstone -- as if plans may have changed as life moved on. Maybe there are some unmarked burials? This is a beautiful cemetery that Albert is in; I absolutely love visiting there. Normally I research edits and links before I make them, but I trust you are familiar with the Harris family? Loretta
Unity Cemetery Hello, First of all....THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR SERVICE TO OUR GREAT NATION !!!! Secondly, I am TRYING to get a complete survey of Unity done. As you probably know, this will not be an easy task to complete. I have spoken with two of the folks over the cemetery. Neither of them have any idea how many are actually buried here. One did tell me that they no longer bury in the oldest part (where most of the Webbs are buried) because they are not sure if those flat stones mark actual graves or not. I remembered your name when I saw it from some of my research on my great aunt, Lorena Frances Roberts Bankson. I am up to 839 burials thus far. This number includes several that do not have a marker or any info of any kind. I was wondering if you might be able to offer any information at all. Thank you, Sarah
