RE: Paul Adams.
I've contacted several of the cemeteries that they have stones in, but NONE of them have any record of them being buried there. I asked Why would they have stones there if they aren't buried there? No one knows! I also asked "Would there be any paperwork if they just had stones placed there as cenotaphs" and every place has answered YES, they should have paperwork, even for just a stone. So I'm totally baffled. One place was going to check and see if there was a stone there. He said it was POURING down rain at the time and he would call me back today. I'll let you know what I find out!

RE: Paul Adams.
LOL! Of the space kind or the border kind?!
One stone (in Brevard) has a different YOD for Betty. It's listed as 1995, but everything else is identical!

RE: Paul Adams.
Did they have two different stones at Florida Memorial Gardens? It was weird that the stones were the exact opposite of each other, one had Paul on the left and the stone in the other cemetery had Paul on the right.

FAG memorial 17474632
I have added a picture of an early journal article about this Capt. David Hand and his five wives an the noteworthy inscription apparently on the gravestone of third wife Hannah Hand (died 1798). The story is often repeated but details vary. I have contacted the Sag Harbor Historical Society to see what might be resolved. I may be feeding you more information regarding the six associated graves at Oakland Cemetery in Sag Harbor, NY. Tim Martin.

Older place names
I was looking at a message you wrote regarding Jacob Harder and noticed you included the Zion Evang. Luth. Ch., Loonenburg (Athens) and Squampamock (Ghent). It took me a while to discover that Loonenburg was indeed Athens and while I've seen references to Squampamock (or at least something similar) I had not made the connection to Ghent.

Do you know of any reference that cross indexes 17th and 18th century Hudson Valley placenames to the current versions?

Speaking of that I often see references to Dutch Reformed or Lutheran Churches as St. Something without reerence to location, i.e., where is St. Peter's Lutheran Church. Is there a reference for early HV churches?

Any information or suggestions would be appreciated.

Phebe Miller
Hi, Im a little confused by your Phebe Miller, she was my 4th Great Grandmother, and married Joshua Whitney, she was the daughter of Peleg and Phebe (Sherrill) Miller. You have her as being married to a Barnes, and buried in a different cemetery and county, I believe she is buried in the same cemetery as her husband joshua and parents.

Hello Fred, I submitted an edit request to link him to his wife, Caroline E. Letts, 12451048. My grandmother was a Schoharie County Karker, I've been going through family records and updating or adding them to Find A Grave. My records show them as being husband and wife and her headstone also shows them as being husband and wife. Thanks from creating their monuments. Paul Turner
