edits of plot locations at L. Point
Hi Christina
We are updating changes to the sections, plots, row numbers at Laurel Point so at this time you will see a decline to add those to the memorials you sent for edits. Once we have all the updates in place, we will add the correct section, plot and row numbers to the memorials. In the spring we are going to be walking the cemetery, photographing headstones and updating those section changes - if you'd like to help, we'd welcome it.
Thanks, Shelley McMinn Anderson, Laurel Point Board

I was working on Guseman's this morning and put on Pearl E Guseman, Daughter of J E & L M, 5 months, 20 days - 155373816. The stone does read dod as 11/26/1899 (not 11/18/1899) as you have it. Please move your photo to 155373816 and delete 155371377. Sorry for the confusion.

FYI Dorothy Hennen completed a survey of Laurel Point in 1975 and it's still sold by Cornerstone Genealogy.
We have descriptions of many stones (not photos) from 40 years ago. This baby was definitely buried with Isaac. What is so great is that Mrs. Hennen has an alphabetical index in the back and the stones are recorded as they passed them. We also have the advantage of several old funeral home records which we have scanned and are using to put memorials on even if a stone was never installed. I can scan things and send them to you if I had your email. If you go to my message board you will find my email.

We really appreciate all your help. It's sad to see so many stones that aren't legible.

RE: James and Ellen Richey
My, but you have been busy, Christina. You got J Calvin and his wife's photos also.

John/Josiah Calvin's parents were Jacob Richey and Elizabeth Baker. I have not been able to locate their graves. Jacob did die in Greene County, so he might have been buried at Laurel Point. If you could keep a look out for him and Elizabeth, I would be appreciative.

Thanks again and Happy Thanksgiving,

James and Ellen Richey
Thank you, Christina, for adding their photos to the memorials and for that of William Darrah. Unfortunately, we don't know where William's wife was buried.

I hope you were able to get the photos during one of our warmer days.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Recording Buial Locations
We really can't help you with the locations right now. We just sectioned it off and we are hitting the ground in the spring. We are trying to get as much as we can on Find A Grave and also our excel file before we start. We will be listing Section, Lot Number and Space Number hopefully. We don't know why but when Mr. McCann was assigning Lot Numbers he at times swung back and forth over the road from Section 1 to Section 3. It's going to be hard to figure it out but we eventually will. Mainly because of the actual stones.

I believe the family put the wrong death date as 1934 on the stone. The newspaper obit was printed right after his death in 1936 and they wouldn't have waited two years to do the obit. I will put a note on his memorial that the stone dod indicates 1934 however....

This is not real uncommon....just messy.

Thank you for finding and photographing his gravestone. I corrected the dates to match the gravestone and linked him to his wife.

John W Hathaway (15310633) and Alice Biddle Hathaway (155243971) were husband and wife and I have linked them. Francis Minerva Stilwell's Death Certificate(136109788) lists her father as a Horner and her mother as a Sharpnack. I can't tell the relationship with Hathaways. I will get all three obits next time I go to the Cornerstone Genealogy Society. I have gotten hundreds of them so far and it is most time consuming to put them on but worth it in the end. Would you believe that I'm related to the Horners, Sharpnacks and Hathaways?
