I was at the cemetery today, but there is still to much snow to find this gravesite. Will keep trying as the snow melts.

Ok, I just sent an email to Find A Grave to get this cleared up.

But I am trying to fix it..

Hi again, I had a memorial that was a duplicate (it was transferred to me)and I sent an edit to Find A Grave to delete it, maybe you could do that with this one?

Just take tombstone picture and add it to the one I transferred to you.

Hopefully we can get it fixed..

Good luck

Hi, Captcha has acting up again, I can not send regular edits....
I am transferring my William Squire Crisp to you, it is (Bill). Then you only have to redo his wife and stone..

RE: Will Perkins
That is interesting. I'll bet it gets cold there in the winter. I would liked to have gone to Jarbidge when my parents and grandparents did years ago. My Dad said the road into there was something else. It scared my grandmother.
They went there to find Will's cabin, and they did. I'm still looking for the picture of it that they gave me.
Will Perkins' gold was in the form of placer nuggets, with a somewhat tarnished color as opposed to the brighter gold that I have panned here in Prescott, Arizona and in the North Yuba River in California. I still have a small amount of Will's gold in a small glass vial, just as he sent it to my Grandfather Jesse.
If I can, I will put a picture if it in the memorial.

RE: Will Perkins
Hi Stephen;

FYI : I just posted a copy of the post card letter to Jesse from Will, which is the reverse of the tent camp photo card.

RE: Will Perkins
My aunt Jennie "Perkins" Grenvold new Helen Wilson and she sent my aunt a signed copy of her book Gold Fever. I have the copy now, if I can find it. We moved 1 1/2 years ago and I'm still having trouble finding things.
I'm also looking for the picture of Will's cabin.
I also have a picture of the way it looked in about 1960 that my Dad took while they were there.
I will post them when I find them.

Interesting about the hops.

Thanks for all the info. You must have been in Jarbidge a lot as you seem to know a lot about the place.

I have some gold nuggets that Will panned and sent to my grandfather, Jesse. The gold there is not as bright as the gold I have panned here in Prescott, where we live.
I use the library computer to get on the net as I am not on it at home, so there are delays.

RE: Mary Huckaby
Stephen, I have a 2001 survey of Cedar Shoals Cemetery done by the Pinkney District Chapter of SC Genealogical Society. Neither Martindale or his wife Mary are on the survey. You will notice that James Standing created Martindale Huckaby's memorial at Cedar Shoals from information from his DC.

RE: Will Perkins
I will try to find the original, as it has been quite a while since I put it on my computer. If I find it, I will make another copy and send it.

My parents visited Jarbage many years ago, about 1960, and it was vacant but still standing. Looked about the same but run down and no plants growing. I had a picture of it then, but don't know if I can find it. Will try and send it too.

My aunt knew a woman that lived there that wrote a book about the town. I still have her book and will give you more information about that too.

Also, Will wrote a note on the back of the post card of Jarbage tent camp and sent it to my grandfather, Jesse Perkins in 1910. If you are interested, I will include it in the memorial.

I use the library for the net, so there are delays. Get there when I can.
