We are Billy and Staci Mims, we have been married for 23 years and are the proud parents of 5 awesome "bees": Braedyn Leigh (21), Brandt Logan (18), Brianna Lauren (15), Bryleigh Lynnae (12) and Brielle Lily (5). We also have another son born sleeping, Brennan Love. Staci has been doing family research for about 10 years. Billy has just recently been bitten by the bug. We currently live in Southern Maryland but hope to move south. We are researching Billy's family which includes Mims, Smith, Robison/Robinson and Naron (and Springer, Lockley, Matthews and Bills). Once we move south we will be able to make the visits to the cemeteries ourselves, we can't wait! Geneaology is like a giant jigsaw puzzle just waiting for all of the pieces to be put together, and we love working on it together!
Howard Ft. Lincoln Cemetery In order to have your request fulfilled, please call Lincoln Cemetery and ask for the exact location of the grave. They can be a little difficult about giving out this information and it may take several calls. Just keep bugging them. 301-864-5090. Post the location in the memorial page in order to have your request fulfilled. It is impossible for requests to be fulfill the request without this info because they will not give it to us. The cemetery is huge and can not be walked.
RE: Henry Wynkoop Jr and wife memorials I tried to add the grave marker photo but I got the message that the maximum photo count has already been reached. I think you would have to drop one of the existing photos and then it should be possible for me to put in the grave marker photo.
Henry Wynkoop Jr and wife memorials Your memorials are outstanding because of the material you have included--but they lack location and family links. I have now transferred my duplicate of the wife's to you -- you can copy your biographical material onto it so that it appears like your other and then delete the other -- this way she has a location just like her husband. We could do the same with Henry Norval Jr. Please let me know. It is important that all memorials have a place and show their location, that's why this is called "find a grave" and it helps visitors in the future to find their graves by gps and/or section/plot instead of spending time inquiring in the cemetery office.
I have been trying to fulfill your photo request for the resting place of Bessie Mims. I see that someone else has tried also. The problem is:
Forest Lawn Cemetery records have conflicting info. as to where Bessie is buried. The map online for section 4 does not match section 4 when you go to the cemetery itself, either.
The main record shows Bessie was buried in section 4 - Lot 43S.
Records 1 to 1 of 1

***************************************** However, I also found this by searching the plot in the cemetery records. It says S '2'3.
All Burials in F-4-S23
Space First Last Date of Death 4-S23 Bessie Mims Jul 24,1995

I'm sorry this note is so long! I am uploading photos for both plots on Bessie's memorial. Best wishes! Janet

Jones/Carroll I have been researching my family history and have had some success. I was trying to locate the grave of my Grandmother Mary Josephine (Carroll) Jones and Delano Jones. From what I was told by family memebers Mary was buried in Galilee Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery. She was born in 1936 and died at age 26. My Grandfather Delano Jones was born 11/18/1933 and died 12/03/1989. He was living in (Escambia County) Atmore AL and I don't know if he was buried in Atmore or in (Lauderdale County) Florence AL. Any help you can provide finding there grave would be greatly appreciated.
Davis, Elizabeth There is not marker for Elizabeth Davis though the Resthaven office provided me with the location as Section Y-1949-1.
I wanted to tell you that after walking this section several times, the closest location I could pinpoint is shown in the forefront of the picture I posted on her memorial. The photo is looking to the SE from Frankfort Street on the left.
I will remove the photo if you tell me that is what you would prefer.
It makes me a little sad to find unmarked gravesites. The office has told me that a standard marker now costs $1,500.
Sorry to now be able to provide a photo of her site.
