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: 74773293,John W Pembertons
You are most welcome. We have found that John Washington was the one married to Ida D Pemberton. About a couple hundred people have this wrong but we found documentation for both him and John Wesley. When I get a chance later tonight I will send you the correct information on John Wesley. So glad you were able to determine that this was correct.

Thanks. I am in Tennessee so I do not know if I can access the obituary.

My other relative and I have finally figured out that there are two John W Pembertons. One was married to Ida and the other was married to Cordelia. It has taken a lot to figure these out. Whoever has him married second to Ida May is incorrect.

Find A Grave Memorial# 74773293
I am working with another Pemberton relative and we are having a problem with John Wesley Pemberton. Found your memorial and it is more confusing than ever.

Every thing we have found shows he married Ida Aikin first and not second. All of the children that were born to them have Kentucky Birth record verification of this.

The headstone shows Cordelia and a child that we have never found. All of his children by Ida are deceased except one so the cousin is trying to connect her family to see if they can help.

We are wondering if you are a relative and how you came about this information. We desperately want to verify our records and get this straight. We see John W living with two of his children on the 1940 census in Indiana and shows him married. Ida's 1940 census shows her single and in West Virginia working. It seems if he married Cordelia they divorced sometime before this and they married.

Please help if you can.

I have 2 Jacksons
I see I have been given 2 memorials named Jackson Keynon with different birth years. Would you take a look and tell me if one is just a duplicate with the wrong birth year?

Thanks for catching the duplication. I'll add my photo to the other (senior) memorial and delete the one I created.

Jackson Keynon
Thank you for the wonderful info. for Jackson's memorial. I'm sorry I wasn't quicker to respond, I just had shoulder surgery & I'm heavily medicated. You should probably see if I missed anything. :)

I would be happy to transfer this family to you. After all, you are doing all the work. Just say the word my friend.
