It appears that there are two cemetery entries that are the same location. Eucha Cemetery (#98366) and Round Springs (462393) are located near the town of Eucha in Delaware County, Oklahoma. I was there today taking pictures for billiongraves. The cemetery sign above the entrance says Round Springs but the location on the map for Eucha Cemetery calls it Eucha but they are the same geographic coordinates. Billiongraves calls it Eucha Cemetery also.

Round Springs -

1a. Please remove this cemetery as it is now empty after all memorials were moved to the correct cemetery: Waldheim


2a. Please remove this cemetery as it no longer exists as a separate entity: Waldheim Anshe Emet.


2c. The four memorials still showing in the cemetery are actually in Waldheim Jewish Cemetery:;CSst=16&

2d. The plot for these four memorials should be annotated to show "Anshe Emet." I tried to contact the owner of the four memorials, but they never replied back to my request to update the burial plots.

This Stelley Cemetery thingy needs to go.

The real Stelleys Tabernacle needs some work though.

Edit name - You can drop the possessive "s" in the name Stelley. The signage doesn't have it, nor does USGS or the Google Maps road name—but I have seen it included on NCDOT and

Stelley Tabernacle AME Zion Church Cemetery.
Geo Info - Neither the church nor the cemetery is on US 220 ! Add the address to read:

112 Stelley Tabernacle Church Rd
Richmond County
North Carolina USA

Lat/Lon - The current map is off by nearly five miles! Should be:

34.994878, -79.77532

Description - Replace with these correct directions:

From the intersection of highways US 74-Business and US 220 at Rockingham, travel north on US 220 4.2 miles. Turn right on Northside Drive and take the next right onto Stelley Tabernacle Church Road. Church and cemetery are just ahead on right. Burials are on both sides of the church.

Thanks, as usual,

Edmunds Cemetery

Add description:

This is an small abandoned cemetery at the front of a farm field on the Willoughby Farm which is located at 379 County Road 17, 5.4 kms south of the town of Smiths Falls. It is located in Wolford Township, Grenville County, Ontario.

This cemetery is not well maintained. The grass is very long and almost all headstones are lying on the ground, covered in grass (as of April 2014). The cemetery is fenced with a wire fence. It was transcribed in 1963 by Mrs. Alice Hughes. At that time 11 headstones were found. In addition to the 11 headstones, 4 plain field stone markers were also observed.

Historically this land was Lot 30, Concession C, Wolford Township, Grenville County, Ontario.
