My main source of reference is The Founders and Builders of the Oranges, 1666-1896. The main families I am reseaching are Harrison and Williams' families so when you get an edit from me, it is referenced.

RE: Photo requests
Thanks Nikita. I don't know the name of the website, but I would like to see it. Capt. Thomas Williams was our Thomas' uncle. As a matter of fact, my daughter is joining the DAR under his name. We were at this churchyard in 1995 and found our Thomas's wife, but not him so the stone has been missing at least that long. We even found his parents there. I wanted to mention that I do have documentation for several of the edits I sent, but I'd have to get it out again to tell you which book. Thank you so much for your assistance.

Photo Requests
Nikita, I have 5 requests for First Presbyterian, but I suspect there probably are no headstones. There are 4 Williams & 1 Dodd. Do you think you could take a look at them & let me know? Thank you.

Clarence Derwent - Walter Max Marx
Hi Nikita, I'm still pursuing the relationship between Clarence and my late cousin Walter Marx. I last posted here in April 2014.

At any rate, I'm wondering if you'd consider adding to Derwents bio something like the following .... born London as Harold Stanley David Wolff to a family of diamond merchants .... I found his birthday registration indexed, now to get a certificate, if available.

Kind regards,

This was transferred to me (of my family lines) and has been that way since 2011.

RE: Nathaniel Cundit #74179028
Ok, but when I searched for the name, and refined the search again, it did not come up, so the techies need to be aware of that too, and not just policy. No one is making duplicates just to do so (although there are plenty out there with differing memorials of the same person), and a big system like Find A Grave should work in a search, especially with dates, and does not always do so. Guess that has never happened to you.
And please note, that Nathaniel is also in old church records as Condict with his second wife.

You noted that MJ Peters had info on "Veteran of the American Revolutionary War; Genealogical info & dates: MJ Peters".

Do you have an e-mail address for MJ Peters?

Dear Nikita,
Thank you for all of your efforts to memorialize the many who have died in Essex County, NJ. I have enjoyed your memorials and biographies and photos. I will miss contributing here as we are moving to FL. Before going, I visited some of my favorite places and was again reminded of how much you have done. History is so rich here. Again, thank you. Bonnie B.

RE: Findagrave Rules re: Names, Duplicate entries
Ok, then I kindly request you transfer her to me, as she is my direct descendant, my 5th great aunt. I also see that this a policy on this site, and I have many more genealogy info to add to her from my family sources. Thanks.

Cundits in history: from CUNDITT to Cundit, to Cundict, to Condict & Condit families
Here's a good theory and guess--based upon historical documents & materials, (including genealogy books and other references), that Samuel CUNDIT (memorial # 6624201, merged here with Mary DODD), from Peter Cundit/Cunditt, from John Cunditt, the ancestor to America, (of the first line to America, from Wales,from England, and it is believed from Normandy France), had the wrong name engraved on his headstone, & that his name was NOT "Conduit" as found on Samuel's headstone.
Is his wife's headstone proof? The dates for Cundits are the same in other historical data.The two headstones seem to be of the same family, attended the same church, buried in the same place.

Mary Dodd's headstone's last name etched as CUNDIT twice, (once for her and once for her husband Samuel), has the same historical dates noted in other sources. Coincidence? Doubtful.

Cunditt & Cundit are noted in history as such, so it is highly likely the name CUNDIT was not a headstone typo, but that Conduit was. Where are the other Conduits here, or in First Presbyterian Church records with the same important dates?
John Cunditt's will names his son,Peter, and eight grandchildren (Samuel,Peter, etc.) as CUNDIT, even though they were named as CONDICT on John's headstone. Look at the 1885 & 1916 genealogy books.

CUNDITT AND CUNDIT names later evolved/were adopted by many of the Condict & Condit families in America today; possibly others with spelling variations belong to this family lineage(Conditt? others?). Samuel and Mary were my 6th great grand uncle and aunt in the lines from Cunditt, Cundit, Cundict & Condict & Condit.

History and headstones...preserving the names that connect us today!

RE: Jemima Condict Harrison #6819459
Thanks, but I was not inquiring about copyrighting facts. I was referring to not accrediting someone else's work --as in reporting info, sources, etc.. Thanks,

Cundit ancestors
Please look at his wife's headstone, where you will likely find the correct last name of CUNDIT as history shows/tells. Thanks.

Re: Achsah Freeman
Hello! You own the memorial page for Achsah Freeman, who I have discovered is my 6x Great Aunt! I discovered that she was born November 18, 1773. I thought you might want to add that to her memorial.

Her parents are Amos Freeman and Mary Crane.

RE: Jemima Condict Harrison #6819459
I would like the attribution (with my name) for the source materials (New Jersey Historical Society, etc.) given you on Jemima Condict, and on other pending edits on my ancestors: Cundits and Condicts.
Genealogy research is just as important as a photo, yet I see nothing on FindA Grave on this for contributors to add their names for sourcing the materials that accompany the gravestone info and photos.
Thanks for adding the info. Could you please forward this to the folks at FindAGrave or is that I am also there too. As a registered user who has contributed, I still see the site says I have made no contributions.

Cheers, Helen Condict Case
