    Moonta, Kadina, Wallaroo SA

    Will be heading that way soon. Able to take photos in this area...it's the old Cornish towns and mines with cemeteries. Also have access to some burial records and transcriptions.

    Hi Annette,
    Probably a bit rude to ask for assistance in my first post, but I've just found that my wife's Great Aunt and Uncle are buried at Moonta. Is there a chance you could note the inscription of this grave for me - or if there's a chance of a picture......?

    Moonta Cemetery
    JONES William Pierce
    Section East 24 Grave#32
    82 years Buried 18 Dec 1962
    Grave depth 8' Permit 16677

    JONES Sarah Jane
    Section East 24 Grave#32
    95 years Buried 31 Jan 1982
    Grave depth 6' Permit 17367

    Many thanks from Coventry (UK)

    That will be fine. Looks like our trip will now be over Easter but I have added it to my list. Will be happy to take photos for you too. It's a lovely cemetery and is very well maintained and cared for. Will pm you when I have been.

    Thanks
    Annette

    Hello Annette, thank you so much for such a kind offer. Would it please be possible for you to look for Francis Raymond (born 1824 died 1900) and his wife Eliza Ann Raymond (born 1830 died 1910) I understand that they died in Kadina. Anything about the Raymond family in this grave yard would be really appreciated. Thank you.

    Kind regards - Linda

    Hi Annette - I dont suppose any of those cemeteries are near Quorn, Wirrabara and Mt Brown?
    I think one of those towns is almost a ghost town now.
    jood sadly died in November 2019.

    Just seen this thread. This is a very cheeky request!

    I am the research manager for the One Name Society for the surname EAST. I know some members have had EAST relatives in Kadina and Moonta. Would it be too much to ask if you just snap any EAST names you come accross? Please don't go out of your way to look for them - I was thinking, if you pass any while you are walking round it would be great to have them.

    Please say if this is too much for you!

    Anne
