I know some of these photos are not that great. With the amount of rain we have had and are about to get more all of this week, the ground is too wet to do better right now. I am out there at least once a week. Keep checking back for better photos. If I can be of further help, please do not hesitate.

Elsie Dodge
My sister and I went to the Novi Cemetery today to look for Elsie Dodge. We checked all the graves and did not find Elsie Dodge. The cemetery was in very bad shape. Many headstones were broken or laying face down and we could not move them. I am very sorry but maybe someone else may find what I could not.

Photo Request for James & Elizabeth Orr
You had requested a photo of these two graves about 10 months ago at which time cemetery staff indicated to me that they had no record of these two burials. However I think I have tracked down the location of their grave site in Mount Olivet so their records could be incomplete.
I'll try to locate their graves next weekend, weather permitting, and if successful I'll be able to fulfill your requests.

Sarah Eaton Photo Request
Chris, I have walked the Old Spencer Cemetery twice in the last 3 weeks looking for this and other gravestones. I was not able to find Sarah's stone. This is an old cemetery with many unreadable and missing stones. Unfortunately, Sarah's appears to be one of them.

I did find an almost unreadable stone for (I think) Zira Eaton who died Sept. 7 or 17, 1877 and his wife Sally who died Apr. 19, 1851 or 54.

If you have any info on these two individuals and would like to create memorial pages, I will post the pictures.

I have marked Sarah's request as having a problem. You might consider canceling the request and putting a note on her memorial page that the stone no longer exists. Your call.

RE: Stacey Challender
RE: Stacey Challender
Hi yes Stacey & Elizabeth are my fourth great-grandparents (Challender is my middle name). You can follow most of my line from my grandfather Willard Alton Challender (#6071304) back to Samuel L. Challender (1802-1859) (#38929009) who was a son of Stacey & Elizabeth. How do you tie in?

My 3rdgreat grandAunt is Charlotte Challender daughter of Stacey and Elizabeth. She married William Charles Carman son of John Carman and Charlotte F Wells.
So we are realted! I have done most of the memorials at Highland cemetery with help from another family memeber Jay Wright. I've been there about 4 times in the last year working on photos. Lately I have gone back cleaning stones that are non readable at the time. Jay has the McBride Cemetery book of Highland that shows all buried there about 30 years ago.
The sad part is that Stacey's stone so far is no where to be found. Elizabeth stone I found sitting in a pile of stones that were knock over/fallen and moved to one location.
We have one area where most of our family is buried except for Andrew Challender they are a little farther away. But what I am thinking is there is an open area next to us where I think everyone is buried but stones fallen over or buried in ground. My next trip will be to take some supplies to look for buried stones. Maybe I will get lucky.

Stacey Challender
You requested a photo of Stacey in the Highland Cemetery, Highland County, Ohio. Is this for you or someone else? He is part of my family and I have been doing the photos in Highland and his wife Elizabeth I posted the photo.

RE: Morse Cemetery Question
The oldest graves in the Morse Cemetery are Betsey Russell d. Jul. 26, 1811. The next oldest would be ____, Noah d. Sep. 18, 1816.

Jonathan Eames, A Revolutionary soldier. (no dates readable).
Benj. W. Patten, A Revolutionary soldier.
"ME MIL. REV. WAR" (no dates).

I believe I have all the photos of these graves in this cemetery. If you want any, let me know.

Was Jonathan Russell (1759 - 1843) a military man? Capt perhaps?
