The guy was new as the caretaker of the cemetery.
He went home and got his book and we stood in the graveyard and looked at it.
That graveyard is about a hour away from me and I will be going back to photograph the entire thing in the fall

Glad to be of help. Please use any photo of mine as your own. Holler if you need any help with local obituaries.

Thanks for your reply. I will need to gather my research in the next few days and will respond with a stronger recollection of what we gathered. There was only family legend to go on. We tried very diligently to reconnect the Surgener's but the documents were very rare with all the fires in the eastern TN archives.
Talk to you soon... Scott Fender

Hi, I just cam across this website today, and I have to apologize I haven't researched Surgener's in about 10 years. Is Mary Olive from NE TN and SW KY area? Hawkins, Greene Co., etc? Julinda isn't a common name and I believe your crew is related to my Julinda Surgener Parker.
Love to connect....Scott
|D Stewart||Stewart/Whitehead Cemetery, Clay Co. KY|
In reply to a note about the possible confusion of the 2 cemeteries (I think there is only one), I have posted photos of the headstones of my GGF Benjamin Stewart and GGGF Thomas Stewart on Find-a-Grave. The oldest homestead in the area was Thomas' and the cemetery probably should be named after his family as his headstone is the oldest and the land was his. Stewart's lived in the same area with much of the same property from about 1810 or so through 1970. My grandfather owned the property in the early 1900's but he is buried about 5 miles away. There may be a cemetery on Spring Creek (which is over the mountain or ridge of hills about 2 miles or so south east). My GM Helton (and GGF and GGM Helton)owned most of Spring Creek 100 years ago.
I propose that the Whitehead and Stewart Cemetery be combined -- perhaps Stewart/Whitehead?

We took a photo of Francis (George Bowen's wife) headstone, also. I will post soon.

I found E E in the 1880 census in South Bend, with occupation photographer. The only city directory for La Porte with his name in the classified section was 1890. The others which I found at the library were for 1888 and 1886. A brief conversation with the County Historian confirmed that E E Poole was active in La Porte for at least a brief period.
I don't know off-hand the photographer which you name, but I'll check the local references soon. Would welcome photos of any of the Halter family.
