I noticed that you have transferred maintenance of the memorials for Elkanah, Jr., Hannah, and Arthur Nickerson to me. I wasn't asking for a transfer, but I do thank you, since these people are my husband's family. I sincerely appreciate all the work you are doing for Findagrave and our families. Regards, Diane

|FournierJillson||RE: James A. Kirk|
Yes, Shanghai Cemetery is a serene area. The sad thing is that with time and probably some vandalism, some of the stones are in sad shape. You will see that the stone for James and Mary Kirk was photographed for Find A Grave a few years ago and it was standing at that time. Now it is lying flat, broken into three pieces. It is an example of why Find A Grave volunteers need to photograph before a stone wears away and is forgotten. Sincerely, Kathy

It is sad but sometimes money is an issue. I found that my great-grandmother didn't have a headstone. So my aunt is going to pay to have one put on her grave. If I find any other relatives of mine without headstones I will pay to have them done. I just feel the need to do it.

I understand about the time allowance.....and thanks for adding the photo. Aunt Dot was very special to all of her nieces and nephews and I appreciate your understanding. Thanks again!

|William Noon Woodward||RE: Coverts photo|
Hello Carl and Judi ... you're welcome. It is my pleasure to help others get the stories and family histories told.
In regard to family histories ... are these Coverts any relation to Merrill D. Covert who served in WWII as a Pharmacy Mate 1st Class in the Pacific Theater. I knew him pretty well.
Thanks for the 'thanks' - Bill W

I think her stone says: MARY EVANS wife of Thomas Evans died Sept 21, 1908 aged 64yrs 10mos 5days
Mary's side of the monument appeared the faintest, most weathered. If I can get a better picture in the future, I'll post it. Kathy

Hi, Judi. I have barely scratched the surface of the Nickerson connections. It would help a lot if they didn't have the same names, and didn't all live in the same place, following the same occupations! Aaargh! I see why my husband is letting ME do all the research. If and when I find out anything interesting, I will let you know. (I did find Elish Doane, Jr and Mehitable Nickerson, great grandparents of Zemirah and Elkanah Nickerson are listed in "Mayflower Births and Deaths" at http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=mayflowerbd&h=29562&indiv=try. See if this is actually your connection with Sarah Hogue.) Regards, Diane

|Anna Schultz||RE: Simcox's at Patoka|
Your welcome, sorry but I had taken these last year and forgot to add the memorials and photos. Maybe that was a good thing because I couldn't find them in the folder where I thought I had put them which led me back down to Patoka to redo them and I found James Walter on the other side. Everything happens for a reason.

The graves being above ground have nothing to do with the water table. If you go to google maps you will see that Gamboa Cemetery is on a "Morro" a big rock/hill. There are some early paintings of the cemetery showing it in its original form back in the early 1800's. It was a lot closer to the beach then but progress has put a few roads and buildings between it and the sea. The cemetery is surrounded by a favela (some may refer it to a slum area) but like all favelas in Rio they command the best views because they are up high on the rock. Some graves do go down in the soil but only a certain distance as there is just solid rock under them. Most graves are on an annuity basis in Rio, although some are on perpetuity basis also. Hence those that are on an annuity basis often are reused, because payments stop, by later burials hence why there are no records of graves for some people. When people are "buried" their bodies are generally sealed inside these "vaults" and sometimes, after seven years the bones are removed and put in an ossory box and placed elsewhere. Some cemeteries (not Gamboa) also cremate the remains. There are a number of difficulties for genealogists tracing graves (generally) but in countries that have this removal/reburial practice then it is very problematic. Cheers Tony
