    2. I apologize for any cross posts. The following is a link to a compilation of 1864-1867 burial data on freedpeople interred in the predominantly African-American Section 27 of Arlington National Cemetery. http://www.freedmenscemetery.org/resources/documents/arlington-section27.pdf While it is usually assumed that the dead were from the nearby Freedman's Village, that was not the case. Most were residents of Washington, D.C. who had recently arrived from elsewhere, mostly Virginia and Maryland. The PDF document is more than 200 pages and has some graphics, so it opens slowly. ____________________________________________________________ Groupon&#8482 Official Site 1 ridiculously huge coupon a day.

    3. Mary: Cemetery records are 'work-product' just like any other business and are not a matter of public record. Most do share some information, others do share as much as they have. But no one will give out contemporary informaiton, i.e., names/phone numbers/addresses of current plot owners. In today's world everyone is concerned about privacy and that's probably the number one reason why they won't just give you the owners' name and number. Some cemeteries go way overboard with privacy issues. And personally I've found that lots of church and especially Catholic church cemeteries have extremely poor records. I thought you were looking for the original owners' name (back to 1900 or so) and many cemeteries will give you that information but not current info.

    2. Mary Deming
    3. Thank you for your quick responses. I have almost always provided information with my written requests (name & date of death) and have indicated that I was looking for ancestors. They were able to confirm that my great grandparents were there and provided the lots in which they were laid to rest. I explained that family tradition told me that 2 uncles of my great grandmother owned the lots originally and were buried there as well. I didn't know their names or death dates. I was told that they would only 'confirm' the presence of someone if I provided the name and death date. They would not provide other names of those in the same lot nor provide the owner's name. Last week, I paid a personal visit and the person at the desk was very nice and did provide us with a copy of the sheet that shows some of the names of those buried in the lot. Based on a comparison with actual headstones, I suspect that the sheet was prepared some years ago since not all those with headstones were listed. I indicated that I was thinking of placing a marker on the graves of my relatives and asked if they could show me exactly where in the lot they were buried. I was handed the price sheet for headstones and a brochure that described the procedure, the first step being to gain the approval of the current owner. They assured me that they had records as to the exact location of their burials but would not look that up until it was time to place the marker. I was told they would not provide the owner's name but if I wanted to call back the next day, perhaps someone else would contact the owner on my behalf. I was disappointed that my personal visit and my request did not lead to some additional information (especially since I live more than 2,000 miles away). I guess I will ask them to contact the owner and request that the owner contact me. Not sure if they will comply but since the ownership is not in the public record, I don't see any other path to follow Again, thank you for your information. -----Original Message----- From: dc-cemeteries-bounces@rootsweb.com [mailto:dc-cemeteries-bounces@rootsweb.com] On Behalf Of dc-cemeteries-request@rootsweb.com Sent: Tuesday, August 10, 2010 12:01 AM To: dc-cemeteries@rootsweb.com Subject: DC-CEMETERIES Digest, Vol 4, Issue 2 Today's Topics: 1.

    2. Norsky
    3. It appears that my gr-gr grandfather was an "inmate" (bad choice of words!!) at the Old Soldier's Home in Washington DC on the 1900 census. WILLIAM TURNER was born about 1832 in England and probably came to the US in the mid-1850's and served in the Civil War. Lived in Greene County Illinois for most of his life with wife Sarah Jane (Garrett) Turner and had several children. I presume he died between 1900-1910 census--if I had to guess, probably between 1900 and 1905--most likely at the Old Soldier's Home in DC. Where were war veterans of that era buried if they lived at the OSH? Were they sent to their home states or buried locally? Where would burial records and lists of names for the Old Soldier's Home for around 1900 be found today? Many thanks for any help. Jeanne in Montana
