From the entrance, you would take the outer drive to the right. About half way around you will come to section I, the graves are to the left of this outer drive.
The large marker family stone of the Showalters
Inscription at the bottom
There are three smaller stones behind the stele, next to the large tree. The right one nearest to the tree is Jackson Showalter, the middle one his wife Nellie (see pictures below), the third one his son James.
There are a number of other Showalters buried in this family site:
Freeman Benoni (!) Showalter (1811-1904) and
Margaret Rachel Whipps Showalter (1819-1905)
Freeman Benoni Showalter (1895-1978)
James Watterson Showalter (1906-1936)
Jackson Showalter's year of birth on the stone (1859) is not consistent with the date given in Gaige Chess Personalia (1860)! (R.B.)
For Nellie Showalter who was a strong chess player see Edward Winter's Chess Notes 7482 and 7485.

Reginald Pryce Michell
* 9 April 1873 Penzance, England
† 20 May 1938 London, England
Buried in Kingston upon Thames Cemetery, London.
Photographs and information from Paul Lonergan (England).
Paul Lonergan wrote: "[The grave] is situated in an extreme corner of Kingston upon Thames cemetery near the Dawson Road entrance. As one enters via the Dawson Road entrance, turn right and RPM's grave is against the wall. I located the grave earlier this year and tidied it up as it had some weeds and litter in it. The grave is unusual in that the headstone does not appear to have any foundation stone. The headstone reads: «Here lies Reginald Pryce Michell. Born 1873. Died 1938»." (E-mail 21/07/2012)
