Re Anne Jones # 131347352
According to Oakland records, she is buried next to her husband. As you can see on his memorial, the lot is empty. That's too bad, because Oakland has complete different dates than what are on the memorial. She is listed as "Mrs. J. W. Jones", buried in grave 10 (Dr. J. W. is in grave 11.) Her death/burial date (records don't indicate which) is given as June 3, 1890. Her age is given as 33. Formal records weren't kept until about 1909. Up until then, various sextons kept hand-written records of varying degrees of accuracy. Perhaps the "33" was really 83 or 92. Perhaps 1890 should have been 1880. About all they got the same as you is the month of death. I will add the photo of the empty lot.

RE: Margaret Eldridge
I agree that typically the 8 July 1909 date shown on the marker for #25345436 would represent a death date but as Margaret is shown at Madison Co Mississippi on the 1910 census aged 9m born Mississippi (indexed by Ancestry as Margaret Eldredge), in this case, where her parents are in the same Cemetery, it looks to be her birth date.

Census reference Year: 1910; Census Place: Beat 1, Madison, Mississippi; Roll: T624_750; Page: 28B; Enumeration District: 0029; FHL microfilm: 1374763

It is never a wild goose chase. We always hope we will find the headstone and we enjoy the cemeteries.

RE: Stephen Thomas Robinson
Hi! Enlarging the picture and looking at in person was the same... very difficult. The record of the church does not have a transcription written down. Having it cleaned would produce it. Maybe requesting an additional pic from another volunteer would get better results with what they can see or their camera will pick up? :)

RE: Zadock Magruder (1766-1820)
I'm still working on information on the Magruders. I found abstracts of the wills of several of Zadock's brother and his father at Rootsweb. The date of his death seems to be in question, but he is on an 1820 census in Columbia County, GA. Now that I have names of some children, I can see how well the ages match to be sure it is probably him. An SAR application gives the date as 3 May 1820, but the book you have linked says 1819. The youngest daughter by his first wife, Miss Talbot is named as Eliza Byrd Magruder. So Byrds are connected to the Magruder in some way. From what I've learned about the practice of giving either a mother's or grandmother's middle name to a girl, I would hazard a guess that the Byrd name comes from Miss Talbot's line.
I went to the book attached to Zadock's memorial and see they give the year as 1819, but my own research has shown me how unreliable family oral history is. I've proven nearly everything my mother ever told me about her family to be incorrect or at least scrambled.
My interest in the Magruders is through Sarah, who married John Olive, whose brother Wiley is my 3rd great grandfather. I also have a connection to the Byrds through the Griggs family. Sarah Ann Griggs married Abraham Jordan. Two of Sarah's sisters married Byrds. Sarah and Abraham's daughter Clementine married Littleton Olive. So you can see that the Olive, Jordan, jGriggs, and Magruder families are all intertwined.
If I learn anything more about Zadock, I'll let you know.

Thank you!!!!
It is DEEPLY APPRECIATED for the research & time you've put into this; which allowed & gave me confirmation of work I've been doing since 1975. At times I'd get headaches & have to quit & get frustrated. I can now finally go on to detailing family & kin folk.
