About St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery in Makawao, Maui, Hawaii.
I have no relatives buried there. My wife goes to the thrift store there and I transcribe burials while I wait for her. If you have information about people buried there please let me know what you would like to add.

Ada Cornelia Coffin Chaplin
I'm declining your request to change name to Adaline as I'm not finding any records that say Adaline...marriage, death, censuses, and gravestone all say Ada - thank you for visiting her memorial. If you have other info I'm glad to reconsider.
best regards

RE: 22247731
Name sounds very familiar, but I don't think I'm related. However, there are a lot of Collinses buried in the Winona area (Mission, Oakwood, New Hope, Hebron and Scotland cemeteries) that I am related to.

Jacksons in Vaiden, Mississippi
Hi John,

I'm working on the old Nathan Smith (Franklin/Lincoln County)who married Elizabeth Jackson. She was reported to be a daughter of William Jackson and Celia Gordon who died in Carroll County, Mississippi. Could you please share where the Jackson Cemetery in Vaiden is located or where your information came from? Anything you could share would be most appreciated.
