August 4, 2012
A number of things have been happening concerning findagrave and Jackson County cemeteries in general. I have teamed up with a couple of ladies on several relatively large projects. Carol Carruthers, formerly of Murphysboro, and now a retired music teacher living in Troy, Ohio does most of our research and comes up with gobs of obituaries, newspaper articles, census figures and such. Laura Whistle Cates Duncan, born in South-east Missouri, grew up on a catfish farm in the Big Lake area north-west of Gorham. She went to kindergarten at Logan and then to Gorham Elementary and High Schools. She now lives in Murphysboro, works in the legal ofice at SINU and spends every possible free moment photographing headstones in cemeteries. Laura sends photos to Carol and I, and we make findagrave memorials and post the photos to them. We are just finishing up Goodbread Cemetery near Gorham where we added about 500 new graves. Laura's parents are buried at Glenn, so she visits often and takes fine photographs.
Here is a list of the new entries in findagrave in the last 90 days. Many of the new entries are the result of the restoration team's finding lost stones. I still have a backlog of about 25 unidentified headstone pics from Glenn and over 40 from Goodbread.
