RE: Sarah Dolan Headstone
You're welcome, Aline. I really enjoy walking through the cemeteries. It serves to purposes. I get me walk in and someone gets to see the headstone of their ancestors.

RE: John C. Gunn Rhoades Cemetery
You have my permission to use the picture of John C. Gunn's headstone. Further pictures of the family cemetery can be found at

These pictures were taken by me the same day as the picture of John C. Gunn's headstone and you have my permission to use these pictures also.

My husband great Grandmother was a Burdette..her father was Robert Miller Burdette..
The cemetery is in the middle of a 300 acre farm with cattle..and did not have a fence around it till recently..Tracie is trying to restore it.. it now has a fence she has found lots of stone buried in the dirt ,broken stones..the cows have damaged a lot of the stones ..she had to take the farmer to court to get access to it..he just does not care about respecting the dead..
My husband and I took pictures of every stone and I will be posting a few more today..

RE: Salem Presbyterian Cemetery
Weather permitting, I can check the next time I'm over that way. May be a few weeks before I have time, though.

Family Burial Grounds

example of a plot when I get done with clearing, research, and photo documentation.

I coordinated with family and stone worker to help get stones reset... many are down.

Jackson Family Burial Ground
My general comments apply to many of the small family oriented plots in Greenbrier.
1. Records are often non-existent except for some prior surveys (readings) by other passers by. Around Greenbrier, the historical society and WPA collected some information that made it to web, printed books or news articles. But I have found it incomplete and prone to typographical errors. With advent of FindAGrave, you can go back in and attempt more documentation to include photography for archiving information that is at risk for loss. And when errors are found, FindAGrave is easy to collaboratively edit with instant availability to many.
2. Death certificates can be inaccurate, that is at the time the cert was made, someone declared the planned burial location; but in the field I find they are actually buried in another location, or perhaps the family moved the stone "unrecorded" at a later date.
3. Stones found in 1970 may be gone now. They erode, they crumble, they fall over and get covered up, they are stolen, they are abused in someway with graffiti or application of harmful chemicals like shaving cream, animals may crib them to sharpen their teeth, stray bullets from hunters, and so forth. Early stones in Greenbrier are often extracted from local sandstone quarries and are starting to get to the end of useful life. Imported marble is even worse as acid rain, salts from road spray, etc. cause their failure. There is a lot of interesting scientific articles on stones used in graveyards; chemistry and biology are factors to be considered, stones are dynamic things.
4. Many times I am in these family plots you know there are unmarked burials due to regular shallow person sized depressions. I have found wooden crosses with names carved, home made markers of various kinds (ceramics, iron, field stones hand carved, etc.) or just a plain unmarked stone with a nearby depression. Sometimes, with permission of land owner and family, some careful removal of surface soil reveals a fallen stone in good shape that needs reset by stone professional.
5. Too often the family plots are abandoned with no maintenance, and you are confronted with animal burrows, multifloral rose, poison ivy, scrubs, weeds, down trees, etc. There may be something right under your feet and you will not know a fox covered it up with diggings.
6. Family plots drive me crazy sometimes because family twig X knows of the burial, but does not know family twig Y later moved the stone and or the body. Family twig X may have no idea that happened.

All I can say about Jackson is, I plan to return this spring or summer for more clean up and photo survey, and we might know more... Oh there is another stone over here!! Missed by all recorders before.

And of course, I could say much more, but on to the next grave!!
