Goodbyes are not forever.
Goodbyes are not the end.
They simply mean I miss you.
Until we meet again!

Woodlawn Memorial Park Cemetery (Orlando, FL)

Woodlawn Memorial Park Cemetery
400 Woodlawn Cemetery Road
Gotha, Florida 34734
(407) 293-1361

On November 23, 2008, Mom, Aunt Andie, Grandpa and I visited the Woodlawn Cemetery in Gotha, Florida. This cemetery is HUGE, and we had a tough time finding what we were looking for. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate Charles Alexander Hall (Grandpa's brother). I also did not realize that Grandpa's sister, Miriam is likely buried at this cemetery as well, so did not have plot information on her.

Erna Virginia Austin Hall Thomas (1:13), Grandpa's mother, is buried in Section K, near The Last Supper marble wall.

James Thomas Hall (1:12 son), Grandpa's half-brother, is buried under the trees in Section E 60-4

Robert Edward Hall (1:12 son), Grandpa's brother, is buried 8 rows from the back, on the road. He is in Section P 14-86 in the Praying Hands section.

Here are links to direction and plot maps to this cemetery:

Mom and Aunt Andie updating our records

On November 23, 2008 Mom, Aunt Andie, Grandpa and I visited the Greenwood Cemetery in Orlando, Florida. Located here is the grave of my Great-Grandpa, William Leighton Hall. Grandpa explained that they did not yet have family plots purchased and since his father died so early (age 50) he was buried in his brother's plot.

From the Greenwood Street entrance, M is the first section. Follow the road to the right. Our relatives are located at the bottom of the hill in Section M, facing Section R.

William Leighton Hall (1:12), Grandpa's father, is buried in Block M-27

Evergreen Municipal Cemetery (Sanford, FL)

Evergreen Municipal Cemetery
1975 West 25th Street
Sanford, Florida 32773

On November 22, 2008, my mom and I visited the Evergreen Municipal Cemetery in Sanford, Florida. Something to note if you ever venture to this cemetery ... there are many, many cemeteries all connected together, so be sure to look for the sign first to be sure you are looking in the right place. This particular cemetery was beautiful with ancient oak trees providing shade and beauty. The best part was the huge, color-coded plot map! Fortunately we knew that our group was in Section G, Lot 47, so it was super easy to find. I have included pictures of my direct desendents, but also at this cemetery was the tombstone for William Lee Harvey (son of William Lee and Alice Frances Harvey). We also stumbled upon the tombstone for Katherine Calhoun Hardy (Aunt Katsie), but she is another line all together and I'll touch on that at another time.
