|Sherwood Lake||RE: Windham Center Cemetery|
Tracy just wondering how your research is going and if that information I collected for you was any help.
|dcp||RE: Jones Family|
Hi Tracey -
The information on the causes and locations of their deaths was on the burial record card. They have an antiquated system there, like an old library card catalogue, and while there was no actual burial information, there was information about the cause and location. Go figure!
I spoke with another F.A.G. photo volunteer who specializes in Elmwood Cemetery. She and a couple of others are systematically photographing very grave in the cemetery, so it may happen that she will stumble upon the location of the Joneses you are looking for, but it will take them months to complete the project. I expressed my frustration with my efforts, and she was very understanding, given the condition of the records and of the cemetery itself.
Best regards -

I forgot Lenora Jones in my last message!
Lenora S. Jones died at the age of 69 on 11.10.1892 at 117 Bank Street, Norfolk (same address as Fayette) of "Parisis."

|dcp||Jones gravesites at Elmwood Cemetery|
Today I went to Elmwood Cemetery in Norfolk, VA to look for Fayette, Mattie and Walter Jones. I learned a great deal about the cemetery and the Jones family. The cemetery records were mostly lost in the 1930's when the building burned, so there are few records which make any sense. Also, the cemetery is very old and not in the best section of the modern city, so many of the graves have been vandalized over the years.
I did, however, find some records of Fayette, Mattie and Walter. Here is what I discovered.
Fayette died at 117 Bank Street in Norfolk in 4.24.1893. Cause of death: diarrhea. No grave location is listed, but he is buried somewhere in either Elmwood or Cedar Grove Cemeteries. The two cemeteries are directly across the street from one another and the records are combined, so there is no telling where he is.
Records are cross indexed by owners of the plots, but no owner was listed for his plot.
Mattie V. Jones was one year old and died 4.29.1911 at 540 Fort Street of Meningitis. Again, no grave location or plot owner is listed.
Walter Jones died on 11.16.1905 (my birthday, different year!) at the age of 54 of "general debility" at 28 Dartmouth Street.
I wish I could be more helpful, but the records are so scanty, this is all I could find.
I did not report a problem or take the photo request down from Find A Grave website, but you may want to.

My pleasure! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
|Sherwood Lake||Mack, Stearns|
Went up to the Cemetery today, this time as you can see I found Archibald, along with a bunch of other Mack's photographed all of them created the Memorial Pages for the ones that didn't already have them and transferred them all to you. It is very clear once you prowl around that cemetery that everyone in there is related. There are connection to the Gould, Stearns, Harris and on the list goes. I also took care of the Stearns request and found a pile more of them. The memorials are created and again transferred to you, if you haven't found a connection to them yet I'm sure you will.
There is no point in me keeping control of them when they are probably all related to you in some way. Hope these help in your research
|Sherwood Lake||RE: Windham Center Cemetery|
I transferred all of the memorials I created for the obvious Mack related family stones. I thought I got all of them I walked that cemetery three times in search of Archibald and didn't find him. But when I got back home I found two stones that someone had photograph already (Mack). I never saw those stones on during my exploration. So he still could be there hiding. I'll give it another shot.
I see you have posted three more Stearns there are a number of them up there. When I go back up to get them probably sometime during the week I'll make another check for Archibald. If there are any others you are specifically looking for post them on the request page as many as you like and I knock them out together. This cemetery is about a mile from my house so it's not a problem.
|Sherwood Lake||RE: Frederick & Caroline Mack|
Tracy you are welcome, I don't know if you got to see the additions but I basically photographed every Mack that I could find in the cemetery. I had already created Memorial pages for them. An example is Caroline A Mack who only lived a few days but she is buried there with Fredrick and Caroline. I would like to transfer those memorials to you to take care of it that is alright with you.
Let me know and I can make the transfers in the tomorrow
