|Bio and Links|
I inherited by interest in genealogy from my mother, Doris Sue Spence Fontaine (Memorial # 83062091). Growing up, a Sunday afternoon ride through the country usually included a cemetery visit which I affectionately call a cemetery hop.|
A few years ago I decided to make her handwritten or typed pages into an electronic format after encouragement from family and friends. In many instances, she left behind clues for me to follow in my adventures today.
You are welcome to use any of the photos that have been posted to the memorials. I would appreciate if you would kindly give me credit for my efforts when using them.
~ I'm the Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Granddaughter of Rev Jaques James Fontaine IV (Find A Grave Memorial# 68571729) and Anne Elizabeth Boursiquot Fontaine (Find A Grave Memorial# 68571829), Huguenot Refugees from France who first settled in Devonshire & later in Ireland. It was his dying wish that all members of his family remain close through the ages and to aid one another in times of strife. From his wishes was formed The Fontaine-Maury Society which today is an active thriving organization whose mission is to strengthen the family bonds of the Fontaine and Maury families.

I went back to Hillcrest this morning and arrived just as the office folks were leaving to care for a couple of customers. They said I could look through the book to find the names I was searching for. I found the listing under Lucille and also found Lonnie. I'm not sure why the guy yesterday couldn't see the name???
At any rate a photo of the headstone will be added to both memorials.

I went to Hillcrest this morning and the fellow in the office could not find a record for VIRGINIA. Is it possible that she went by another name? (I had provided him her middle and maiden name also, and he said he found nothing there)
Unfortunately, I can only take his view of the records and couldn't look through the various names to try to figure it out myself. If nothing else I see by the memorial links that her husband's name was Lonnie. I will go back with the thought if they have a location for him, I should also find her.

Just wanted to thank you for the headstone photos and creating the memorials for my 4th great-aunt Lillie Cassell Neff and her husband Greek. I had been trying to clarify if they were buried in the same place as their son and now I've submitted the edits to get them connected :) Thank you again.

Thank you for applying the updates for Dorothy Elizabeth Wallner Skuse # 108363996 and Mildred Louise Wallner Weldon # 110467028. The updates are much appreciated.

No, I'm sorry, I don't have any information about him. I enjoy taking photos of graves to help others find the graves of their family members. I just happened to be in the area visiting my grandchildren, and stopped by this quaint little cemetery, and took some pictures. I did think that the marker with all the names on it was unusual. It was surrounded by several individual small headstones, and all of it was fenced in by a hedge. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. If they contact the Christ's Church, they may be able to find out something.

Thank you for her obituary and burial info. Hopefully, someone can now find her gravestone and her husband's gravestone so a photo can be posted to Find A Grave.

After entering this grave of Harry and Maude gearing, I did an ancestry search and found your entry with burial location unknown. So, I thought you might want to know about this. Is it the same person? Are you related? I am not... Let me know what you would like me to do, i.e. transfer to you, delete, etc.
All the best, -Hal
