I plan to go to Elmwood this Saturday.
If you can call the cemetery office at (205) 251-3114 and get the block and lot for this request (and any others you have for this cemetery), and send it to me, I can try to get this photographed. I would do it myself, but I can only get 2 per visit, and this request is pretty far down the list, so this will get your picture a lot faster (like, years faster!).

Hi, Jim. Yes, it is! :) Are you related to these Joneses? --Vicki

Hi. I am doing some research on the Wetherington Family. I believe that the J.W. Wetherington # 8735970 buried in Hebron Cemetery is the same person as your Walter Wetherington # 153273705. Also do you know the idenity of Clyde Leigh's 3rd husband whose last name was Steele? Note* I have sent a request to link this J.W. Wetherington to Clyde Leigh. Alton

I live near the cemetery and the people you listed are related to me by either Allen or McCullers. Do you have any others from that cemetery. I would be interested in managing it.
|BrianTB||RE: C. C. Magruder|
You are certainly welcome! Please let me know if you need any others in the DC/MD/VA area! Happy New Year!

|scottr73||RE: Stephen Robinson|
I am assuming we may be related...Stephen Thomas Robinson was a son of John Robinson (buried at the same cemetery-1776-1849). I am a descendant of Murray Robinson (brother of Stephen). I have a few more headstone photos from the Robinsons's in Second Presbyterian Cemetery from a trip to Charleston a few years ago.

According to Oakland records, she is buried next to her husband. As you can see on his memorial, the lot is empty. That's too bad, because Oakland has complete different dates than what are on the memorial. She is listed as "Mrs. J. W. Jones", buried in grave 10 (Dr. J. W. is in grave 11.) Her death/burial date (records don't indicate which) is given as June 3, 1890. Her age is given as 33. Formal records weren't kept until about 1909. Up until then, various sextons kept hand-written records of varying degrees of accuracy. Perhaps the "33" was really 83 or 92. Perhaps 1890 should have been 1880. About all they got the same as you is the month of death. I will add the photo of the empty lot.

|Robert Eldridge||RE: Margaret Eldridge|
I agree that typically the 8 July 1909 date shown on the marker for #25345436 would represent a death date but as Margaret is shown at Madison Co Mississippi on the 1910 census aged 9m born Mississippi (indexed by Ancestry as Margaret Eldredge), in this case, where her parents are in the same Cemetery, it looks to be her birth date.
Census reference Year: 1910; Census Place: Beat 1, Madison, Mississippi; Roll: T624_750; Page: 28B; Enumeration District: 0029; FHL microfilm: 1374763
You're very welcome!
