RE: Geo Henry
Hi, No information in Mount Peace or in their office is free. That is why they ask for a written note (and $20). The workers in the cemetery expect to be tipped. That aside I am pretty familiar with the place including being able to get quick retrieval of the older cemetery records on-line. I was in Mount Peace in May and took photos of the grave of Charles and Hannah Henry at the Roberts plot S-243. While we were there I took pictures of another Henry family in lot R-170 that included George Henry who died of Typhoid on 9/22/1903 in Del. This is the description of the person in your photo request.

What I am about to tell you doesn't seem to agree with the little information in the bio. you wrote on him.

Lot R-170 contains four members of one Henry family. The 'father' is Joseph F. Henry, b. Ireland, 1846, blacksmith by trade, d. 1902 Del., bur. gr 1. The 'mother' is Emma C. Phipps Henry, b. 1852, PA, d. 1891 Del., bur. gr. 2, 8/15/1891, dau. of Asa & Maria Phipps of Del. Their daughter is Johanna Henry, b. 1877 PA, d. 1891, bur. gr 2, 12/5/1891. The 'Brother' of Johanna is George W. Henry, b. 1877 PA, d. 9/22/1903 of Typhoid, Del., machinist by trade, bur. grave 3, 9/25/1903. The only George Henry buried anywhere near 1903 in Mount Peace. Maybe also played baseball, doesn't say. I have pictures of all three stones and a wide shot as a group. There are several other Henry's in Mount Peace. Hope this helps, Regards, JohnF

RE: Mills Riddick
I think it is at the "old place".

RE: Mills Riddick

The coordinates given are quite a ways from the Riddick's Folly House (which is in downtown Suffolk). I'd say at least five miles. It would be odd to have a cemetery right by the house since the historic Cedar Hill Cemetery is almost directly behind the house. This is the site of most (but not all) of the older stones within Suffolk, VA. Suffice to say, it is probably the "old place" you are referring to. I can get an approximate mailing address if you'd like to try and contact the homeowner.

Not a relative. My ancestors were from Penfield so I do random searches on the village trying to break a brick wall. Not sure what the copyright is on the article. I copied it from the historical newspapers so if you use it, be sure you cite the newspaper.

RE: Sanfords in Laurel Hill, Thomasville
Sadly I am not to my knowledge related to your Sanfords, my Sanfords are in Maury County, Tennessee. I photograph headstones for people to find their kinfolk. I am happy to transfer to you if you will use the edit button I will get to you. Carol

RE: Jones plot photos
Hi Stephen
You are so welcome! You may want to update the plot numbers for the ones missing that info, they are all together in a family plot. I tried to get an overview so you could see them all. I did notice that the dates are a bit off.
Blessings to you

Paul Wheat
You have made a photo request for Paul Wheat in Rose Ridge Cemetery in Naples, NY. Paul and his wife, Mildred Grove Wheat, are interred in Clearview Cemetery in North Cohocton, Steuben County, not Rose Ridge. I have entered memorials for both and added a photo of their headstone. Their death date has not yet been added to their stone.
