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.

Charlie Silver
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.

Iam still looking for an answer, if i find it I will let you know.

RE: Matthias Crane #6768692
Thanks Nikita for your reply. I was trying to link the children of John Crane (#74190444) and his wife Esther Norris (#74190510) and was having problem with their son Mathias (1700-1781). He now has an entry (#152934015). Apparently Matthias/Mathias was a common name in the Crane family and several generations made it a bit confusing. I appreciate your help with at least 2 who were in the Revolutionary war.

Mathias Crane #6768692
By any chance is there any additional information on Mathias, either on a tombstone or in the church records? I'm looking for ancestor in this era that lived and apparently died in Elizabethtown (Elizabeth).

RE: Carlina Sheridan Glasgow McElroy #80614222
Thanks for the added information. I met Carlina probably back in the 1970's when I interviewed her about her grandfather, General Sheridan. She was staying at Nonquitt, Dartmouth at the time.

RE: Jessy Jane Seton #46524769
I've re-checked Janet Skene Ogilvy's date of birth and found I had incorrectly given this as 1769, when in fact she was born 31 Dec 1789 in Airlie, Angus. This would have made her age 21 on marriage in 1810, therefore making the ages of the children tie in. I have corrected the DOB on Janet's entry.
Apologies for the inconvenience.

RE: Trustrum Dodge
Thank you for your quick response. Yes, I read the bio for Trustrum Dodge, Sr in its entirety and see that his name was spelled Trustrum on the headstone as well.

I tried a new search for his aka "TRISTAN" as stated in the bio and nothing shows up. That is how I discovered the mis-spelling for his aka in the bio. It should say "TRISTRAM", rather than "TRISTAN". Can someone please correct it.

Note: His aka is mis-spelled at the beginning as well as the end of the bio.

Thank you so much.
