If one is visiting the Forest Grove cemetery, would you consider taking closeup digital photos of four graves for me? I think that they are located together. The graves are:

Dewey C Jones, b 1899, d 1951.....
Lula A Jones, b 1900, d 1957.....
CC Jones, b 9 Aug 1852, d 10 Jul 1936, father.....
Eliz Ward Jones, d 28 Feb 1848, aged 90yr 11mos 16 days, mother

Thank you so much, Jim Corey, Harpers Ferry WV

Jim, the 1848 should have been 1948 date of death.

Also, She is listed as S. E. JONES and with C. C. JONES, the father. Note She is listed twice so you might wish to correct that.

Forest Grove is broken into 4 sections and is listed in Row order not alplabetical... http://www.wizardofar.org

Our Mission is to photograph all grave markers in Alachua County and make them available online as well as archive them with University of Florida Libraries.

The images are online first, then a Volunteer transcribes what they see on the stone for the database. When we have time we go back and make corrections where necessary. The photos are there to back up the database. So if the DB is wrong you should be able to see the right info on the stone. The database is a finding aid. We have all but one cemetery in Alachua County Photographed. We are working on editing the images of the ones that are not online to place them online.
