Please feel free to use my photos for your personal genealogy endeavors.

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.

RE: Bill Palmer
The Commercial's "Prize Baby"
Several of his family were owners of various newspapers around this time, in both Lawrence and Daviess Counties. It helps to have a relative in the business....

In the blurb I sent you about Joshua Hazel I listed his wife Naomi's maiden name as Hutchinson. I have since learned it was Hutcherson. I hope you can correct by error in Find A Grave Memorial# 81638449. Thank you. You're going a tremendous service to us genealogists.

Joshua Hazel was also married (briefly) to Naomi Z. (Hutchinson) Wood who died 31 Dec 1918.

Wedding announcement from Mitchell Commercial dated Thursday, 16 Nov 1916, p. 3: "Wood-Hazel Wedding - A pretty wedding took place Saturday evening at the home of Mrs. Samuel Cook, south Walnut street, when her mother, Mrs. Naomi Wood, became the wife of Joshua Hazel. The wedding was performed by the Rev. C. H. Taylor of the First Methodist church in the presence of the immediate families of the contracting parties. The bride was married in a traveling suit of African brown with hat and shoes to match and wore a corsage bouquet of lavender chrysanthemums. Mr. and Mrs. Hazel left on the afternoon Monon train and spent the night with Mrs. Frank Westfall, a daughter in Mitchell, and have been spending a few days at French Lick. They will return this evening and will be at their home on south Walnut street after tonight. Mrs. R. A. Ogg, sister of the bride, was an out of town guest. The evening upon the arrival of Mr. and Mrs. Hazel, a reception will be held at their home, Mrs. B. F. Adams and Mrs. C. G. Malott being the hostesses. Mrs. Hazel is a well-known resident of this city being closely allied with the social and religious work of the First Methodist church. Mr. Hazel is a contractor. - Bloomington World."

I will be posting photos of their grave sites but alas there are no grave markers. There is a nice empty spot where the marker should be. It appears that a marker was never installed. If you do not want the 'empty' photo to appear please let me know with the Find A Grave number and I will delete it.
