I've been doing my family's genealogy for only a few years; I am thoroughly immersed in the hobby. I have been the most grateful recipient of volunteer photos on this site, and would like to pay back the kindness I have received by helping others if I can.

RE: John M Hunt stone
Pam,

There is no stone for Ida. I went back up yesterday and hoped to poke around with my tools to see if I could uncover something but I couldn't find any sign of Ida's stone. I will try to send you all the pictures later today. Lydia's sisters (Harriet and Joann Shipman) are in spaces 3 and 6. Frances Hamilton is in space 7. The stone for Alfred is a newer Veteran's stone. Angelina is next to him in space 4. But there are no stones in space 1 where Ida should be or in space 8 (unnamed Woodworth).

RE: John M Hunt stone
I think the pictures I took today will be better for seeing the details of John Hunt's stone.

I must apologize however, because I could not find any sign of the other relatives. I was so sure that I had seen Woodworth graves in the area but I walked the whole block and couldn't find them. In fact, the only two graves that have stones are #3 and #6 (John and Mabel).

If you want to see pictures of the whole area, I can send them to you. They probably wouldn't do much for the memorial.

RE: John M Hunt stone
I can't help but get addicted to every story I find connected to a stone in any cemetery. So, I have this all on an ancestry site and I wondered the same thing about Ora or Ova Bell. If she was 10 and the daughter of the Woodworths (which I believe I do remember their stones and will get pics for you) was 25, it seems unlikely that she was a Woodworth. I can't find any sign of McLaughlins in the area and the census looks vague....her name is missing the marks for the last name of Woodworth but I thought her name was Ora Belle so the census makes it sound like her last name is Bell-which I don't think is correct. I saw the Grandfather, Grandmother markings for the cemetery. Are they talking about John Jr's grandparents? I'm not sure how the Woodworths connected to the Hunts. There aren't as many stones there as there should be but I will get more pictures tomorrow.

RE: John M Hunt stone
There are no dates on the stone unfortunately, which is a little odd but sometimes happens when they have a stone for Veterans.

I am trying to reconcile the information from the neighboring graves to make sure that I am processing the correct information on him from ancestry.com.

I think his son was buried in California but the son's wife is buried in the family plot in this cemetery. I will continue to work on it and let you know what I find out.

The metal war decoration is set in concrete and it doesn't bend so it is hard to get a good picture. I took one before the mold and lichen were cleaned but you can't read much with that view either. White letters on white stone is hard to read. Basically, it just has JNO M Hunt, 95th Ill Infantry, Co. C.

RE: Ramsdell stone
I'll be happy to transfer Mary. I always take any other family members when I do a request so I'm happy to have "found" her for you.
