Bio and Links
Bio Photo I could care less about the number of memorial that I create. Or that I manage.I am more concerned about recording the persons in the cemetery for all time in the internet where weather, vandalism, and time doesn't degrade a person after they have been laid to rest. I have seen many headstone worn to nothingness, broken by cowardly vandals who take "kicking a man when he's down " way too seriously! The dead in this case are known only to God, they truly become nothing more than another grain of sand!  I try to keep that from happening, as much as I am able. I freely transfer the memorial that I create, I am not stuck on 4th generation criteria. If you are related, you hold more ownership to that person than I! I just hate to have other people step on my toes to glorify their own numbers. It's the deceased that is important in establishing a memorial, not the creator of the memorial page.

Russell and Nelle Wilson
Russell Wilson is not buried at Mount Hope Cemetery. According to an obit added to the memorial by another contributor, he is buried at Greenwood Memorial Park. Nelle Wilson also is not buried at Mount Hope. Perhaps she is buried at Greenwood Memorial Park as well. I canceled photo requests. Once you edit the burial information on the memorials, make new photo requests.

RE: The Barrett's
I'm glad I could help. I believe these headstones need to be preserved on line. I have seen many in old cemeteries you can not even see anymore. Such a shame. Well any time I can help feel free to contact me.

Winifred Barratt
Hi Bruce,

The folks in the office at the cemetery could not find the card for Winifred Barratt telling them where her grave was located. I asked if they had a computerized list of sites and just got a deer in the headlights look.

I re-sent a request for Norman Barratt's gravesite and Holy Cow! They were able to find it. I figured Winifred would be right next to Norman and sure enough, there she was.

It looks like I must have just missed Nancy as both plaques were nice and clean. I have added one more picture for you with both graves and give you an idea of their site.....

Wish I would have been able to complete on the first try for you....

RE: Winnifred may ( Norman) barratt
I just added it. I also added another one for Norman. It was so dirty. I brought water and a small broom and cleaned it up. The headstone appears stained but you can see it better.

RE: Lieut Joseph Armitage Paxson
You are welcome. Less than half of the Buckingham Meeting burying ground has been documented on Findagrave, so I know there are more Paxsons to be added.

Sonner grave
I am a retired judge and summer before last, I took a road trip and stopped by the Sonner church and found my way to the grave yard. I was so grateful that the out of the way patch of ground had been so well kept and wondered who was responsible.

I am writing a memoir and in doing the reseach came across your name.

Maybe, cousin, one of these days we will meet.

My grandfather was Jesse Leroy Sonner who had a dairy farm outside of Delaware,Ohio. My dad, Kenneth, moved with his family to Maryland in 1943 where I have lived ever since. I lost my wife 10 years ago and live by myself in the house where I raised, like Anthony, four sons and two daughters.
