RE: william hopper
In preparation for the Find A Grave meetup I called the staff to help me find which people on my list had memorials and which people did not. They told me to use the cemetery locator which would give me that information. William is listed on their records as having no memorial but when I got there, I had found several people who's records stated they did not have a headstone, but who in fact did. I went into the cemetery office to complain about the bad record keeping but they seemed indifferent. I never got a chance to look for William's memorial so please check the photo requests to make sure the request is still active because I have found that the cemetery records office is unreliable and William may indeed have a memorial.

I notice you have a interest in Surveyors. I have also. Mostly in Mesa County. If so what is your interest?

RE: Illogan Cemetery
Yes thanks

fancy words just to save spending on maintenance, the place is in a shocking state in the old part.

kind regards

RE: cleora graves
No, I was posting a photo request for myself and saw that. I figured that you would like to know that someone else had posted it. Have a great day!

A lot of the very old stones in the old graveyards in Cornwall (as all over the world) were made from relatively soft stone. Many have been eroded by weather to the point they are not only unreadable but have crumbled to the ground. I've seen stones so overgrown with lichens that all the writing is obliterated. The lichens in the cemetery at the Perranuthnoe Church my relatives attended are the subject of a church pamphlet, identifying dozens of them. Apparently the cemetery is somewhat of a wildlife refuge, too. It would be very unusual to find stones as old as the ones you are looking for unless they were on the interior of a church or otherwise very well protected. Some of the wealthier people had granite or marble stones which survived better but those would have been too expensive for the common folks.

Part of my family also ended up in Michigan, up in the copper mining Upper Peninsula, Houghton area. Some of them were buried in a Catholic Cemetery that later just built a new church right over the gravesites of many of those interred, including my family. Nice! I would wonder about the jou-jou of that church!

I had the pleasure of visiting Cornwall about 10 years ago to see where my family came from and got to see the church where they were married and where the children were baptised, back to the later 1700's. The village they lived and mined in is Goldsithney and the church is in Perranuthnoe, right on the southern coast looking across the bay to St. Michael's Mount. Very beautiful countryside and villages. I've accumulated more information and it's time to go back in the next couple of years. I would like to see my great great grandmother's gravesite in Camborne, among other places.

What part of Cornwall are these overgrown cemeteries in? If it's near where I'll be . . .
