The inscription on Mary Williams' grave states her husband was Eleazer.

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Here's a good theory and guess--based upon historical documents & materials, (including genealogy books and other references), that Samuel CUNDIT (memorial # 6624201, merged here with Mary DODD), from Peter Cundit/Cunditt,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!

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

RE: Martha & Aaron Blalock
You are very welcome! I understand about wanting information to be verified. I drive people nuts by demanding proof. I was looking at a family member of mine when I ran across Keith and Malinda's story. I was trying to determine which bunch of Coffeys Keith was related to and when I found out it was a direct family member of mine that shot out his eye. (supposedly) Anyway digging about I found his Mother and thought to ask for the edit. Thank you for your time!

RE: Crannells & carver William Grant
Thanks so very much!! I'll have to look up those texts. I also received a message from the Association for Gravestone Studies based out of Massachusetts who said they may be able to help with some more detailed information. If they provide anything extra I'll be sure to forward it to you.

Question about William Grant
Hi Nikita! I've been doing some research about Robert and Catherine Cranell's grave at Trinity Church (a longtime fascination as a lifelong New Yorker). You mention that it appears to be the work of William Grant, and I was wondering if you have any more information on him?

You can email me at

Thanks so much.

Penelope Stout's maiden name?

Do you have any documentation that proves that Penelope Stout's maiden name was Van Princis and that her first husband's name was Kent? Most of the records I've seen for Penelope indicate that Van Princis was the last name of her first husband and that her maiden name was Kent (or Lent). The marriage record of Penelope and Richard Stout gives her name as Van Princis and indicates that she was a widow. That suggests that Van Princis was her married name, not her maiden name.

I'd appreciate any documentation you can offer.

RE: Gravestones
Hi Nikita. I didn't realize the brown sandstone was from the Belleville area. I grew up in Bloomfield and lived in that area until about ten years ago when I moved to Sussex County. My travels may take me to Elizabeth, so I'll keep those locations in mind. The brown sandstone headstones are my favorites because they're readable even today. Thanks for the interesting information! Regards, Joan S.

RE: More sources on Orange, NJ, families
Thank you so much Nikita! The information you've given me will keep me busy for a long time. The First Presbyterian Churchyard must have the biggest collection of brown sandstone headstones I've ever seen. I hope it can be restored. Regards, Joan S.

Harrisons in the First Presbyterian Churchyard, Orange, NJ
Today I went to the churchyard seeking the graves of three ancestors. I found one, Ichabod Harrison, but I didn't find his two wives. You give so much wonderful detail on all the memorial pages. Are there church records that I can access to find my other ancestors? I hope you can help me. Regarads, Joan S.

Nikita, you provided a very informative bio for the tragic figure of Charlie Silver. Do you know if his mother Elizabeth (Wilson) Silver died giving birth to Charlie? Do you know where she is buried? I can't seem to find a trace.

Thanks for the photo for Jedidiah. I noticed that there is another site for him, but yours is the first. I have asked Bonnie(she entered photos on the dup site) if she would move her photos of his gravemarker to the site you entered and then maybe we can get the duplicate site deleted. Thanks so much.
