RE: Bennett Cemetery, Brooklin, Summer, WVa
This cemetery is very hard to get to. As I remember you will have to walk a distance and you will need a guide and a truck. It's been years for me and I can't tell you where to start. Sorry I can't be of any help.

Elizabeth Johnson's death date
When you took the photo of Robert L. Brown and Elizabeth Johnson's cemetery stone in Odd Fellows Cemetery, Seaford, DE, did you transcribe the dates of Elizabeth's birth and death? They are not visible in photo.
Thanks, M.A.

James G Kimberlin
I am inquiring on the wife listing of James G Kimberlin/Kimberling. All the census records list Minnie A Kimberling as his sister and his status as single. Do you have any data for this? I have looked and have not found anything as to Minnie A. husband.

Thank you

Mason Bane Carr # 28744345
James, I sent an automatic EDIT correction on his DOB, but I wanted to support my data. His Death Certificate gives his DOB as 18 Nov 1912. I enlarged the photo of his grave marker and it appears to say 18 Nov (not 8 Nov) and the transcription of Birchlawn in the Giles County Virginia History - Families book says Carr, M. Bane; 11/18/1912; W; 3/5/1961. (To complicate matters, his SSDI has the date as 11 Nov 1912.)

John Quincy Cochran, Sr.
Memorial at Back Creek ARP Church Graveyard, #52330590: I believe the birth year for this gentleman should be 1794, instead of 1784. His obit states that when he died in 1854, he was "in the sixtieth year of his age". It seems impossible to make out the dates on his tombstone, however, his mother, Margery McGinnis-Cochran was born in 1773, and could not have given birth 11 years later in 1784. Also, when you look at the birthdates of his siblings, the 1794 date makes more sense, I believe. Repectfully suggested, M. J. Dierdorff

And thank you for creating all these Cochran memorials. Very much appreciated. mjd

Could you get a map added for this cemetery? They just help me to keep from wasting time on cemeteries that are already well documented (such as this one) and ones that need documented. Thanks for doing such a great job on this one.
