Bio and Links
Bio Photo Well, I'm older than dirt. Have dabbled in genealogy on and off for awhile. Have a family cemetery in my front yard and have always been particularly interested in a couple of branches of my family.

Published my great-grandfather's memoirs and that was fascinating.

I tend to take spurts and found my family cemetery already listed here, so that's given me renewed enthusiasm.

I have no problem with someone else using any photos that I post, and am happy to transfer a memorial if it's not in my family line.

William Henry York
Iris, I was looking at an old record of Marshall Memorial Cemetery and thought you might find it interesting that William was the first person to be buried in this part of the cemetery.

You are most welcome. Thank You for acknowledging the photos. Mrs. Bray has a second memorial, Find A Grave Memorial# 66353424, where she was interred, in Georgia.

RE: thank you
You're more than welcome. I'm always happy to reunite people with their loved ones. Also by the date of his entry, I can let you know that he is located on the older side of the cemetery. There is 4 entrances to this cemetery. The ones to get to the old side is the entrance that is straight off 15th St. and the other one is the one before you get to the main entrance, it is located just a little ways up from the park park and pool parking lot.

RE: Thank you SO MUCH
this is what I could read:
James Brown died Sept 29 ? in his 50th year of age. Christian, widow of James died Feb 29,1820 at 66 yrs old. William (son of James & Christian) died Nov 18, 1820 at 24 years old. William B died on Mar 17, 1837 at 25 yrs old. Henry died on July 25, 1842 at 25 yrs old. Frances Elizabeth daughter of Ichabod and Fanny Potter died on Oct 18, 1843 at 15 years old. Asher died on Jan 18, 1818 at 36 yrs old. wife, Fanny Potter died March 20,1883 at 75 years old. I actually think there is another name on there that I didn't write down. I can check when I get back that way.

RE: Thank you SO MUCH
You are very welcome. I'm so glad I could help. There were other names on there also, William B Ayres and Henry. Also, Frances Elizabeth, daughter of Ichabod and Fanny Potter. I couldn't get a decent picture but wrote down all the information. If you need it, please let me know.

RE: Eugene Keeton at Mt Carmel
It was no problem sence I was going out there anyway. Sorry that I could not find it. The Jordan stone is hard to read and I was going to try and chalk it, but never found it. It is already posted on find a grave. Just wanted it for my records. Keep doing what you can when you can... THANKS

Eugene Keeton at Mt Carmel
I saw where you posted that you would look for this grave. I went out to this cemetery today looking for some Jordans. I did not find them, but while there I was also looking for James Scott(which I found) and Eugene(which I did not find). I found an old cemetery list and he is not listed. Maybe a field stone or a unreadable stone. I am going to post a problem but leave it open. Just thought I'd give you a heads up.
