RE: Stiles/Woodlawn Memory Gardens Cemetery
You are very welcome. It's a pleasure for us to do that for friends like you who appreciate what we do.
We will keep our eyes open for any and all Stiles we come across in our searches.

Stiles/Woodlawn Memory Gardens Cemetery
Hi Barbara, Doug and I went to do some photo requests at Woodlawn Memory Gardens - which is directly across the street from Royal Palm Cemetery this morning. We came across 2 Stiles - they being Mary E. Stiles, and Christine Camille Stiles. We photographed their markers and have them posted on the Woodlawn Memory Gardens site. Don't know if they are relation, but took the photos - just in case.

RE: G. Alvin and Blanch Stiles
Hi Barbara, You are so very welcome. And thank you for the compliments - they are appreciated. It's been a blessing to us to have been able to put photos with names of your family members.
(And I checked on the 2 other Stiles at Royal Palm and they don't appear to be related to Arnold and Alvin.)
You may want to delete your photo request for Lyle as it's still up on Find a Grave. What happened is that before we go to a cemetery to look for photo requests, we check on the site to see if any new names are added. That morning, all was fine. So, we went to Royal Palm and took the photos of Lyle's grave. When we got home, we were surprised to see that another volunteer had claimed your photo request for Lyle. I (I do the computer work) e-mailed the volunteer and explained that we had already taken the photos and she was fine with us putting them up on the site. We don't get the 'fulfilled credit' - which is fine with us - but the photo request still remains.
F.A.G. recommends that you put up a 'claim' before going to the cemetery to take photos. We don't do that as we feel that looking for one specific grave - out of 23,000 as in the case of Royal Palm - is hit or miss. Also, if a photo requester sees that someone has claimed the photo - they are most likely anxiously awaiting the photo to be posted, which could be a let down when the grave can't be found. (Even if you have the exact location, the grave may be covered over - as in many cases at Royal Palm.) You have 2 weeks to do the photo after claiming. We feel that having a deadline of 2 weeks makes the 'search' more of a job then fun and relaxing. We love just going out for a few hours, walking the cemetery, and hopefully finding the requested graves.
If you would like anymore photos of the cemetery, graves, etc., please just ask. We're more then happy to do that for you.

G. Alvin and Blanch Stiles
Hi Barbara, I did a little searching on Ancestry to see if, indeed, Alvin and Arnold were brothers. I found a family tree that states that they were.
So, Doug and I were at Royal Palm this morning and took photos of Alvin and Blanche's grave. We added some area photos - and in one it shows the direction in which Arnold and Ramona's grave is...just across the little street in the cemetery - next block down.
Royal Palm has turned out to be quite a family spot for the Stiles. We've really enjoyed finding all of them for you.

RE: Lyle Stiles
Thank you SO much for your kind words. We take photos like we would like them taken. Having the area around the graves makes you feel more like you've been there in person. If you do find that the other Stiles -Alvin and Blanche were located a very short distance from Arnold and Ramona's graves - that it would seem that they could be related - we'll be happy to photograph them.

RE: Lyle Stiles
Barbara, You are very welcome. Glad we were able to find his grave for you. We were surprised at what a distance Lyle's grave was from his parents.
There are other Stiles at Royal Palm. If you would like photos of their graves, please just let us know.

Lyle Stiles
We were able to locate the grave marker for Lyle yesterday morning. His grave is north of the office, very near the main entrance. He is in the Ash Garden.
Glad we were able to find him for you, and to put closure to where your family's loved ones are.

Wilson Family

I have relatives who are buried in Evergreen Cemetery. I am not sure if I am related to the lady that you asked about but, I left flowers anyway.

William Arp Wilson 1890-1951 is the son of my grandfather Wilson's brother, Wiley Winn Wilson & Elizabeth Jane Clack. He is buried in Evergreen Cemetery and she is buried in Georgia.

Clara Maybelle Tippett 1890-1953

Larkin Winn Wilson 1893-1976

This is just some of them that I have named.

Our Wilson family moved from Georgia around 1920 to Florida.

I have two cousins in Florida that I email often. One lives in Centeral Florida near Gainsville. The other one lives in Cedar Key.

My Line:

James Jefferson Wilson b. NC d. TX - CSA
Elijah Henry Wilson b. GA d. TX - CSA
James Taylor Wilson (my grandfather)b. TX d. LA
Olen Daris Wilson (my father)b. TX d. LA
Virginia Wilson Bailey (me)b. LA

If you find a connection, let me know. I have researched our Wilson Line for over 30 years.

RE: Arnold Alexander Siles and wife Ramona Elizabeth Rhoads Stiles tombstone photos
Hi Barbara, We walked around the area of the Stiles graves today hoping to find Lyle. Doesn't look like there are any more Stiles in the immediate area. Doug did find another Stiles marker in the next Block - those being Blanche and Alvin Stiles. Any relation? We'll keep our eyes open for Lyle. If you like, you can give the office a call (Sharon is wonderful) at 727-321-6316 and ask for the exact location of Lyle's grave. That will make the hunt faster.
Royal Palm is a nice cemetery - very old southern style with Spanish moss hanging from the oak trees.
It spands an area of 72 acres. There is no old section of new section - everything is here or there...which makes the hunt 'interesting.' We go to several cemeteries in the area doing photo requests, and Royal Palm is our favorite. We were even fortunate enough today to see a bald eagle sitting atop one of the trees. This is such a wonderful hobby for us.

Riley family
Barbara, You added a great bio for David Love Riley. I assume you are connected to him, having that much info of his family. I am a 3rd great grandson of his father, Allen Watson Riley through David's brother Thomas Jefferson Riley. I've been looking for Penelope Sides Riley for years, She last showed in the 1850 census and have searched that county for years seeking her burial. Allen was a teamster and homesteaded many places in several counties obviously leaving sons where they also founded homes in those counties or possibly staying on the places Allen founded. Clay, Talladega, Randolph, Coosa, Shelby and Jefferson are among those as attested by those son's muster records in the CSA. I would think Penelope is buried close to some of her children and or grand children, but which?
If you are a Riley descendant, contact me and let's talk Riley.
