Hannah Barnes
Hi Fred,First of all a sincere thanks for all of your hard work on this site. I am curious, I see that you created a memorial #33956419 on Feb. 18, 2009 for a Hannah Barnes who is buried in South End Cemetery in East Hampton, NY. The information her memorial gives is that she died Dec. 8 1815 at 76 yrs. I also noticed another memorial #33956421 for a Hannah Barnes you created that same day Feb. 18,2009 and in that same cemetery but the info given was somewhat different. This memorial gave a death date of only 1815 & 75 yrs. and that she was the daughter of Noah. My question is could these two Hannah's be one in the same or are they different people?

Family Links
Thanks for alerting me to the new family links capability within the edit function. I've been using that for name and date additions, but didn't know I could use that for links as well. I really like these new features, and also like seeing the list of siblings on the memorial pages.

Tryphena is my 4th great grandmother. I notice that you took the photo of her headstone. Can you read the inscription? I believe her birth date is 9 Mar 1785 in Pepperill, Mass. Trying to confirm that my info is correct. Thank you for entering the data on my family.

Nicholas Schaeffer 1723-1780
Hi, Fred,

I saw your memorial to Nicholas Schaeffer (#18797890), who is buried in St. John's Cemetery in Wernersville, Berks Co, PA. I was just wondering where you found the birth and death dates. Is there a birth/baptism record for him somewhere?
Thanks for any hints that you might have.

Hi Fred,

I am co-author of the article on William Heina. He was a survivor of the Lusitania sinking, an inventor and race car driver. I was wondering if we could use this grave photo with proper credit.

RE: Thomas Cuttino
My apologies.

I sent a note to Find A Grave to merge the First Baptist Church Cemetery and the other was just Baptist Cemetery. The marker has Old Baptist Cemetery and there were some duplicates since the names of the cemetreries was slightly different. Sorry for my error on your post.

Mary Furner
Fred, hi.

Can you tell me more about the information below on Mary Furner? The link to Martha Parks Furner as a parent, was that from the cemetery records? Ae 74, does that refer to an age? Martha could not be her mother in that case.


Mary Furner
Birth: unknown
Death: Jan. 7, 1844

Ae 74

Family links:
Martha Parks Furner (1795 - 1852)

Note: info from early records and no stone currently exists

RE: Ebenezer
That is great. I suppose that the monuments erected for EbeneEr/Amey is the original Ebenezer. Gotta love the history. Thank you!

Added by Airrow on Feb 19, 2014 7:42 PM

Messed that up, the oldest one was married to "Amy/Amey" and the youngest to Betsey & Mary. Computer working slow so caused a dup on my last message.

Added by Airrow on Feb 19, 2014 6:29 PM

RE: Ebenezer McIntyre
Thank you. I have three generations of Ebenezer's . . . LOL, the oldest one died in 1776, so at least two of them are there and I can easily tell which one is which since one was married to Elizabeth and the other to Betsey & Mary.

Rebecca Hulse
Fred- As I wrote you in the edit section, Rebecca Hulse is not a wife of Joseph Raynor who died 1797 and is a Revolutionary War soldier in Colonel Josiah Smith's Regiment.
The book "Josiah Raynor 1665 and his descendants" has Joseph Raynor married 1st to Jerusha Hulse and 2nd Jemima Dayton, and his son Henry Raynor who died 1815 is from Joseph Raynor and 2nd wife Jemima Dayton. These two marriages are documented in the DAR database. The book on Josiah Raynor 1665 of Manorville NY and his descendants is in the Suffolk Cooperative Library. You can find it in the Family History Library Catalog. Henry Raynor who died 1815 is the son of Joseph Dayton and 2nd wife Jemima Dayton and Henry Raynor who died 1815 married Martha Hulse is also documented in the DAR. I will gladly take off the flower and note, but can you, in return, put the accurate information on the findagrave pages of Joseph Raynor died 1797 and Henry Raynor his son? I sent you all the sources on your email. Obviously the cemetery records you took them from were not accurate, and there are no graves there to see what the tombstones say. thank you .
