RE: Paul E. Devorick

I went up to Benshoff Hill and found & photographed Paul's headstone up there. I created a memorial (#180976633) and in the bio section, I explained the two "burial sites" and my theory.

Since there are two in existence, they should both have a memorial and be accounted for with an explaination to avoid any confusion by anyone down the road. I've come across this before where people were moved to other cemeteries and their old headstone was left in the first cemetery and had a new one installed in the second one.

Anyhow, I think my theory is correct, but I could very well be wrong. I also see that his wife had passed, too, and she is not at Grandview.

Let me know what you think...

RE: Paul E. Devorick

I completely understand. Yes, I live 2 miles from Grandview and I'm there nearly every day, plus I use their website all the time which is so nice, rather than having to bother the staff.

I see from the photo that he has a small cross that is a standard one provided by the local funeral homes. I wonder if he was cremated? Maybe he was "officially" interred at Grandview but some cremains buried at Benshoff? This has me stumped because when I transcribed Benshoff in 2006, these are the Devorick headstones that I found and recorded:

DEVORICK, John P. 1901-1977
Zelma P. 1903-1977

Paul E. 16AUG1928-24JAN2003
E. June 14FEB1930-(Living)

Let me know what you find. I'm really curious. If Benshoff weren't so big and if I could remember where his headstone was, I'd go up and photograph it. I'll have to see what my schedule looks like.

Also, Benshoff is known to be a bit of a mess and I've seen many people moved out of there and re-interred to other cemeteries. Just lately new management took over and things have gotten much better, though.

RE: Tydings
Hi, Thanks so much. Email is
I am pleased to meet another cousin. I did so much research when my grandmother was alive and then stopped. I am now slowly getting back into it. I also am going to be a Find A Grave contributor. I understand the privacy.
Thanks, Lisa Tydings- Jonas

Douglas Family History
Hello Mr. Covington, I was trying to research Mrs. Virginia Ann Douglas Edwards because my ancestor is her brother Edward Filmore Douglas. I have her father as David Lemuel Douglas born 1814 and mother Sarah Brinnon Palmer but nothing more, any data would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
William Edward Douglas
