Thanks for the reply. This is indeed a mystery! We were able to locate both lots 225 and 330 and we didn't see Martha Kirkpatrick in either one. She should be in 330 as you said, and there were the three graves you named there - but not hers. And if the stone was there in 2012 - I wonder where it could have gone.
Would it be possible to post that 2012 picture so that I can take a look and possibly see something in the background that might help locate it. All I can think is that it was moved elsewhere in the cemetery for some unknown reason - very strange as there are no Kirkpatricks buried there, and she isn't in either Lauster lot. And if it had just broken, it seems that part of it might be still visible. Quite a puzzle!
I do have a cemetery lot map that I got from another volunteer, and it doesn't appear that any other family lots are nearby those. We aren't close to the cemetery, and did make a special trip there last week. Perhaps in the spring we can try again and be able to walk the grounds a bit more to see if we come across it.
I would be happy to have any information you have from the church records. I do have some, but anything you have is welcome.
I am looking for information about the photo you posted on this page for Martha Kirkpatrick Lauster: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=LAU&GSpartial=1&GSbyrel=all&GSst=36&GScntry=4&GSsr=2761&GRid=25285812&
This is a relative of mine and I was unable to find that grave in my recent visit to the EPCC. According to church/cemetery records, she should be in the same lot - 330 - as others that we did find, but her stone is not there.
I was hoping you might be able to tell me when that photo was taken and where it was located in the cemetery when it was taken. The stone seems too substantial to have just crumbed away, as others are still there and look fine - a bit tumbled and leaning, but readable. Perhaps that stone was moved to another part of the cemetery?
This will help me to solve the mystery of where she is buried.
Thanks so much! Your help is greatly appreciated. TN
I am trying to find more information about a headstone image you posted in a listing for an Evangelical Protestant Church Cemetery grave site. Is there a way to contact you or can I just leave my question on the message boards? Thanks! TN
