I am an avid genealogist and thoroughly enjoy linking families through Find a Grave. My family research lines include Sherwood, Hayes, Adams, Eastman, Ricky, Elliot, Conarty, Walters, Brazill, Fullum, Welch, Traver, Combs, Skillman, Wright, and Jacoby. I am happy to make transfers of family members, and I am thrilled to care for the memorials of my family members as well. If I didn't have to work for a living, I could easily see myself doing this all the time! If I can help out with a photograph in or near Wichita, Kansas, just let me know.
Rose Forker at Mount Hazel Cemetery(Detroit) Can you contact the City of Detroit to get a grave location? I haven't been able to find a stone for her yet, but many of the older stones are unreadable. The last number I knew for the responsible department was 313-224-1103. If they can give you a location, it may narrow down my search area...
RE: Columbus Rouse (#90649457) Thanks for catching this, Julie. I've pulled the photo. A friend, a longtime member of the Mt. Olive congregation, has had a number of modest markers (about the size of a large brick) made up for otherwise unmarked graves at Mt. Olive. I believe this one is in error. We will need to retrieve it from the cemetery, in addition to pulling the photo. This Columbus Rouse had no marker, but his death was documented in the Emmons Funeral Home records, including the notation, "Died at Shelbyville." I don't see any evidence that there ever was any Columbus Rouse who died in 1857. Such errors are the risk one takes in erecting markers long after a death.
Columbus Rouse's father was John Rouse, who died in 1883. He's probably buried at Mt. Olive, but I have no good proof. Columbus' mother was Mary Eliza (Weaver) Rouse Edwards, who died in 1941. She also has no marked grave; probably at Bethel Baptist with her 2nd husband, Early Edwards.
You left me an edit on Mary Barnes #32336255 and Carrie Barnes #10992374 suggesting their maiden names. I am very happy to add them but before I do, may I ask how you know this information is correct? In my research I have been unable to identify their maiden names.
Fitzpatrick at Bunker Hill I noticed you are maintaining this family at Bunker Hill. I am trying to locate the burial of John Vorhees Fitzpatrick son of Philip and Sarah (Wilson). Would make sense for him to be there also. Any idea?
