RE: Request for photo of Henry Mollenhauer's Gravesite in
I have now searched the on line index and found that Henry Mollenhauer was buried in the Consecrated part of the cemetery, section 13, grave 1301.

All I have to do now is to find the grave! That is not always easy - this is a huge cemetery and it can be difficult to determine whether you are in the right section. However, I have found a detailed plan of the cemetery in Liverpool library which shows the location of each grave number within the section so that might be very helpful in finding the grave.

I hope to visit Anfield again soon and will let you know how I get on

Transferring management
I noticed that you had a problem having a transfer of management of graves from Ancestor Hunter in July 2013. Would you tell me if you ever resolved that issue. I also ask for this person to transfer management and they refused.

RE: Taylor Famly Graves
I really appreciate the detailed response. Even though most of these responses are not for our family I really am interested.

Our power was out for a couple of hours during an intense storm and were on generator power. Comcast was down and we didn't have internet. Apparently Comcast doesn't buffer messages.

It seems like we got nipped by the 'flush stone syndrome'. It happens from time to time. They have a habit of collecting dirt, leaves and debris and becoming out of view. If we know we are dealing with a surface level stone we will scuff up the area looking for it. The area where the lot is in Mount Peace gets a beating from the mowing and digging equipment. We had to dodge mud ruts when we were looking. The cemetery is working to fill in the low areas and that temporarily makes things worse.

I am happy that you had the photos. We are about 300 miles away but we are really familiar with the cemetery, being there several times. I have a grand uncle buried only 17 graves away. Regards -JohnF

Taylors - Mount Peace
Regarding your photo requests for the 4-Taylor's in Mount Peace, I have some information for you.

As you probably already know the burial record shows no stone was placed on the lot between 1892 and 1958. We went to Mount Peace last month and located Q-167. It is very close to relatives of mine. We could not find any stone. Sorry about that. You might want to consider cancelling those four photo requests. Thanks. -JohnF

RE: Bishops in Green-Wood
OK. Pics are up.

Edwin and "Francis" Murray have no memorial pages. I'd have created them myself, but I think there's an error.

Edwin B Murray was clearly the son of Amelia Bishop and Joseph Murray. He was born 9/19/1867 and died 8/12/1882.

"Francis A" is the problem. I'm guessing--but I believe this to be Frances (with an e), first wife of Wallace Murray, Edwin's much older brother (1851-1907). NYC death records list the death on 9/29/1879, of Frances A. Murray, w Wallace Murray dau of Herman and Rachel Lindeman. The "Francis" Murray buried in 13883 was interred 3 days after the death of "Frances." This cannot be mere coincidence.

RE: Bishops in Green-Wood
I dug around a bit and found an item on Ancestry.com--an obit for Amelia Bishop, daughter of Edwin and Caroline and wife of Joseph Murray. Two of their children are in the Bishop lot in Green-Wood--Edwin B and Francis A Murray. That gets us to 13. Joseph and Amelia Bishop Murray are buried in Woodlawn Cemetery, Bronx, NY. I'll be glad to post photos, but remind you that the 2 stones on the lot are eroded and undecipherable. Meanwhile, I'll try to discover who else is buried in that lot.

Bishops in Green-Wood
I've investigated this lot--ony 2 illegible stones stand here. You mention that about 15 members of the Bishp family are interred in this lot. Is BISHOP the only surname? Only 7 are listed in the cemetery's online burial list.

RE: Photo of Tombstone for Anna Rudolph
Hi Bob,
You're welcome! I also added her husband James and her mother-in-law, Emma Kate. Someone else had already posted a pic to her father -in-law's memorial. He was a veteran of the civil war and Kevin Guy has added and been adding info about veterans buried in Spring Grove for quite a while now.
