I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am working on a project to identify the last resting places of many of our "old soldiers" that had ties to Vt. Samuel Stratton is one such patriot. May I use the photo that you contributed to his Find A Grave Memorial page, to post on the Vt.Civil War site? (

You would receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.

Looked up that member. Person is new to Find A Grave, correct? If so maybe just needs direction. And does name stand for "genealogy"? I don't know.

I saw your message about Old Swedes. I've photographed all stones here---readable or not. I've received messages as well. Grrrrrrr. My feeling is this is a very old historic cemetery and stones are fragile (at best). Better to have something than nothing at all is my view. Hopefully someday someone can match up correctly with the records they have there. That would be a major project, but worthwhile. Ignore the nasty!!! Like I said, better to have a crumbling stone than no stone at all.

Another steamy hot day :( Looking forward to cooler weather so I can get back out to cemeteries.

RE: Help
Hi Joz, you never bother me :)

I would contact Find-A-Grave management. Think there's a link for that. And I agree with you. Inappropriate. Good luck!

Have a peaceful day---Kimberly

Benjamin BURR d 1682
Hi there. You have several Burr's listed as buried in Delaware. That is a memorial stone!!! I found an old newpaper article from The New York Times Jan 14 1894 from the Willmington Delaware News. An article about the BURR FAMILY MONUMENT. Horace had a monument containing the names of the Burr family erected on the burial lot belonging to the Burr family in Old Swedes Cemetery. Dr Horace Burr, an ancestor, had it erected in the Old Swede Cemetery in Delaware. His, meaning HORACE's family, are buried there. Not his ancestors. He wanted the history to be shared. Benjamin and Anna and their GREATgrandson Nathaniel (son of Jonathan, son of Samuel) and his 6 sons including Samuel who I have DAR records for, are listed on that memorial stone!!! They died and were buried in CT. People copy wrong information and it gets confusing to straighten it all out!!!
Hope you will correct!!! :)

Edward J. Harkins memorial
Hi Joz: Someone let me know that there are two entries for Mr. Harkins. Yours was done sooner and I'd like transfer mine to you. Maybe you can merge the information together.
The memorial on my F. A. G. memorial is #10220807.

Please let me know and I'll take care of it.

Grave marker in Old Union United Methodist Church Cemetery
Thank you for adding the photo of the grave marker that shows up for John Fisher #5226352 and for Irene Fisher # 5226355.

I am hoping you would tell me the data on the grave marker as I cannot read it and when I click on the marker to make it larger, it shows up on an individual page, but no larger and I cannot read it.

Can you please take time to let me know all the data on that marker? I would be so very grateful.

Dear, Joz,
I recently learned that my aunt, Lorraine Weierbach, is interred in Estell Manor Veteran's Cemetery. If possible, could you place a memorial on here for her. I ask as you have already placed my Dad, Joseph A. Weierbach and, my uncle, John N. Weierbach.
Sincere Thanks,
Joel A. Weierbach

First I want to thank you for taken the picture of my grandmothers grave. I was never told were she was. My mother Alyce McCoy was buried at the foot of her mothers grave Sarah. I am trying to find out if there was a plaque place on Sarah's grave about my mom Alice/Alyce.

Thank you so much, Joz, for the pictures of all the headstones you have uploaded to Find A Grave. It seems like everytime I find a headstone for a relative (most recently, several in the Head of the River Cemetery in Atlantic County, New Jersey) I find your name underneath the photo. I hope you don't mind if I copy the picture to my family tree, as I always give credit to you (or whomever takes the picture) and Find A Grave.

Thanks again for all your efforts.

Thank you for all of your work and contributions to! I have just discovered my two 2nd cousins in memorials you created. I would love to connect these two brothers to their parents and grandparents and would like to ask if you would consider transferring their memorials to me.
