Consort and relic refer to a spouse, usually to women. A consort is a husband or wife of a living spouse. A relic is a widow.

Latin abbreviation: H.S.E.
hic situs est (here lies)

Latin abbreviation: H R
Hic Requiescit (here rests)

Latin abbreviation: AEC
Anno Emmanuelis Christi (In Christ Emmanuel)

Latin abbreviation: IHS"
Iesus Hominum Salvator (Jesus, Saviour of men)

"INRI" is an abbreviation for the Latin "Iesus Nazarenus, Rex Iudaeorum" ("Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews")

I typically do not put in calculated birth dates from the Aged information on a gravestone. Those dates tend to be incorrect.

I need help with St. Michaels's cemetery, East Elmhurst, Queens county, New York.

latitude and longitude
To add latitude and longitude, click on Edit Plot.

If you leave a space before the values, an error message, "values are not the correct format", will be returned.

Be sure to include the - for the longitude, otherwise the person will be buried in China.

If you download Google Earth (it is free software) and put in the search box the latitude and longitude (for example 38.7338, -86.48588), it will take you to the grave area.

I use Google Earth to find the latitude and longitude. I type in the latitude and longitude for the graveyard and then adjust the numbers until the pointer is on the gravestone.

It is fine with me to send anything you want Just thought you would like to know there were two different Homers. I have a lot of Alford connections in my families, but not close and that is why I came across the memorials.

Thanks for the info. I tried to change the family rel. and spouse. Also added the bio. But I fear it is wrong with the children and dates. How about I transfer the management to you? You are doing a good job and far better than I could do. Thanks. Let me know?

Good job. I would say that you are correct on his mother. I have linked her grave with his. Thank you.

RE: Parish Family
In the Bass Cemetery, I know of only six family members buried there.

John Wesley and Matilda E. (Luther) Parish
Henry L. Parish
John W. Parish
Mary Francis (Parish) Head
Irene (Parish) Wedgewood

Irene's death date is wrong on the stone, her obituary was published in December of 33 and it listed her as Arriney but her name was Irene, family called her Rene (pronounced Reen). I don't know why but they all liked nicknames and going by middle names in my family in those days.

One of John and Matilda's children Albert was buried in Michigan with Ellen Martin-Lambert. His birth name was Stephenson Albert Parish but he went by Albert or Al Parish and his parents called him Stephen. I don't really know why they liked to go by nicknames and middle names. Albert's wife was Laura Ardith Pridemore but always went by Artie. John Wesley's father was named Albert also which is why he named his son's middle name Albert.

RE: Parish Family
Yes I have an obit for John Wesley and his death certificate, I have dozens and dozens of records of their deaths. Matilda died of Asthma in March of 1906, that was 110 years ago.

I did not know of Lloyd's memorial, my apologies and I could not find Hazel's, it took me to Helen's memorial. Helen was my grandmother. I know a lot on the burial information and death records on these people. They are close family.

If you need any information just let me know. I know Elmer and Elsie had three children who died before 4 years old and they were Roy, Kenny and Donny. Roy was 3 yrs, Kenny was 10 months and Donny was 5 months. I have Kenny and Donny's obits.
