Prospect Hill Cemetery
Is there any way to confirm the information you have found at Prospect Hill Cemetery, Columbia County, NY when the caretaker of the cemetery has no record of the deceased? I am not sure if there are gravestones. Do you use gravestones or written records for Find A Grave? Your information looks correct.

RE: Charlotte Audrey Gaertner Clark
Thank you so much for the prompt reply. I commented on the Carr marker, not as a criticism but as a query if the two graves were "connected" or just an optical illusion. I will contact the funeral home per your suggestion. This is wonderful work you are doing. Thank you again.

Charlotte Audrey Gaertner Clark
I am searching for this relative.
Mr. Saar, you posted listed a photo of a metal name marker (Charlotte Clark) which appears to be on a grave for Tammy Carr. Findagrave memorial number 20023066. Cemetery is Mt Pleasant (Mt Tremper, NY).

Can you or anyone else provide any more details on Mrs. Clark.

I apologize if I have reached out to you in the wrong context. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Van Velsan
Please check your notes for Elizabeth Lockwood Van Velsan, #19254707, in the Coons Cemetery.

You quote the inscription as "aged 42" but in fact she appears in the 1850 census with her daughter Sarah Ann Winchell as age 72.

Jacob Ruth, DAR A098644, 1726-1797
Hi, Fred,
I believe that this Jacob was not a soldier in our Revolution, but that he qualified for DAR Patriot status as he paid the supply tax in support of the effort. He was in his 50's during the time period of the Revolution.

RE: Marie Parks
Hi Fred,

You are very welcome for the photo. Iím glad that I could help.

I donít remember how I came to add Jamesí name to Fairview. I most likely did it when I looked to see where Marie was buried and noticed that James was buried next to her.

The documents I have for Fairview show that there are six Parks interred there. James H. and Marie W. on one side of the Parks monument (row 13) and Frances S. and G. Smith on the other (row 14.) The last two are Blanche G. (died 10 Mar. 1937) and Hyram Arthur (died 17 Aug 1955) both of which are located in the mausoleum. I have now added memorials for all with photos for the first four. Unfortunately, there is no record of a Merry Parks at Fairview.

Regards, Steve

Jonah Parks
I live within the geographical area for requests for Kenosia Cemetery in Danbury, CT. I have carefully checked Connecticut, Hale Cemetery Inscriptions for Kenosia and cannot find Jonah Parks--or any Parks--listed.

The 1850 Census lists Jonah as living in Ridgefield, CT; 1860 lists him in North Salem; 1880 in Ridgefield. It is very possible that he never moved, because at one time North Salem was part of Ridgefied. (It later became part of NY as part of a trade for more coastline.) Ridgebury is actually part of Danbury, CT.

Kenosia is quite a distance from Ridgefield, so I am not sure they would have taken him that far, especially since there were no other Parks there. I would suggest that you go to the Town of Ridgefied website and request the Death Certificate for Jonah from the town clerk--there is a form on line that you can mail in. Death Certificates are filed in the town where the person died and most include the burial place.

I hope this has been helpful. I would enjoy hearing how it works out.
