RE: Sgt. Hardy Newton Jones, CSA Hello Sam. I added a photo of Josephine's stone today. She is in the Isaac Thomas lot, 4 rows down from Hardy. Isaac is her father. You can see the Evans stones, where Hardy is buried, in the upper left of the photo of the 3 Thomas stones.
RE: Sgt. Hardy Newton Jones, CSA Hello Sam. Thanks for the tip. Josephine's grave is right in that area based on Smiths and Mathues graves already identified. I will go back to see if she still has a stone and take a pic.
RE: Pvt. George R. Bolton Hi Sam, I don't know anything about who may or may not have been buried at Holmesburg. By the time the stones were transcribed in the late 1800's there were only 13 or so stones that they could make out and those are probably the ones left standing there. You could check those records to see if there were any other military members. The 7 stones I photographed last week were not military. There were dozens of stones in the cemetery that were not transcribed because of weathering.
RE: Pvt. George R. Bolton No problem. I checked all of the known records for the burials there for his info and could not find it. Because of the fire in 1874 information is scant. I also have ancestors in Mt. Moriah. Have not gotten around to much investigation yet. Will get there soon :)
RE: Col. T.D. Fister, CSN You're welcome. Actually it is not that bad. the surface of the stone is flat and the oval is incised down into the stone with the lettering raised. So water and debris settle into the lower part. That is why it is darkened. It is actually in quite good shape.
Why is William H. Hidell's grave at Woodlands Cemetery unmarked? His daughter Marie's grave in the same cemetery just received a marker. Why not her father as well? Perhaps something can be done? Thanks for your response.
