RE: Florence Outwater (1918-1918)
Bayview - New York Bay Cemetery in Jersey City NJ
Edgewood section
Grave 4
Row/Lot 676
Burial Date 2 Mar 1918
Florence Outwater (Has a "C" after her name, which I'm assuming indicates "Child" as one of the others has an "A" and she was the only child listed)

I'm looking at a photocopy of the cemetery card for that plot, card # E279
Has three other individuals listed on it as well as the owner and address.
I just figured out how they are all "kind of" related yesterday.

If you need a copy of the card and the other folks info, might be easier if we switch this to an email conversation.

Oh, almost forgot according to New Jersey, Births and Christenings Index, 1660-1931

Name Florence Outwater
Gender Female
Birth Date 6 Jan 1918

Gifford F. Stelle
Hi Richard,
I see that you accepted the correction for Gifford F. Stelle's (#8067009) name from Clifford to Gifford. I'm thinking you must have merged 2 memorials, because there are now several photos of Gifford's stone. There had been none when I uploaded mine several weeks ago to "Clifford Stelle", as was noted in your bio section.

Please let me know if you would like me to remove my photo since there are some there already.

It's your call!

Susan Stelle...Stelton Baptist Cemetery
Hello…
I was at Stelton Baptist Church Cemetery in Edison, NJ, yesterday looking to take some volunteer photos. While preparing to upload some pictures, I came across the memorial you created for Susan Stelle, (#8069915) whose B/D are listed unknown.

I wanted to respectfully point out that I don’t think the uploaded photos on that memorial belong to Susan Stelle. The single stone says Susan Smith, daughter of Peter and Sarah Smith. The picture of the double stones shows Susan Smith next to her sister Mary.

There is a memorial created for Susan Smith already (16125729), so one doesn’t need to be made. Is your Susan Stelle, the same as the woman posted in memorial #16238760?

Phebe Ann Oldrin & John Merwin Oldrin
Could you please transfer #117470492 John Merwin Oldrin and Phebe Ann Elizabeth Oldrin #137640997 relations, to me 48224322? They are related to me through their mother Catharine Freyenhagen. (I read that you are related to a different Oldrin male altogether i.e. not Catahrine's husband).

If you will not transfer John, could you please add his burial places to your memorial for him? I looked at John and P.A. Elizabeth's death certificates so I can confirm their burial places. John Merwin was buried at Sea Cliff, which most likely means Carpenter Cemetery.
Phebe Ann Elizabeth Oldrin (cemetery, death certificate and 1920 Census have her as just "Elizabeth Oldrin") was definitely buried in Woodland Cem in Stamford CT with her parents and some siblings. If you won't transfer could you please place her in the correct cemetery (Woodland) and post the bio that I wrote up for her?

RE: Oldrins, Woodland Cem. CT
You're welcome for the info, but I also wondered if you yourself had remembered seeing any other markers for the Oldrin family members buried in that plot since it looks like you took a picture of Hannah Oldrin Bedell's marker but no markers for any others buried there.
Also, are you related to that Oldrin family? If not, why were you researching that family so extensively?

Added by AAW on Oct 20, 2015 8:15 PM

Oldrins, Woodland Cem. CT
You took a photo of Hannah Oldrin Bedell's grave (120755734), but also requested a photo of her mother's grave (Catharine Oldrin) 120755619. According to the cemetery, Catharine Oldrin and Hannah Oldrin Bedell are buried in the same plot (as are Edward Sr. & Jr. & 2 sisters of Hannah) so that suggests that there was no marker for Catharine near Hannah's marker. Did you see markers for any one else in that Oldrin family plot (other than Hannah Bedell)?

Rev. Bergen Stelle
Richard,

I may be able to shed some light on the death of Bergen Stelle, Memorial# 8063363. I am the superintendent of the Cherryville Baptist Cemetery in Franklin Twsp., Hunterdon County, New Jersey. I am working with the church historian locating long past Pastors. The Rev. Bergen served here from 1854 until his death in 1864. Our records say he was widowed when he came here and it took some time to figure out where he was to be buried. He was almost buried here.

The only thing I'm really looking for is that you add his Service to the Cherryville Baptist Church from 1854 - 1864 to his Bio. You may use what you like.
Thanks'
Bill McCrea

Picture Permission
Hello...I would like to know if you could give me permission to use the photo you took of black Medal of Honor winner Decatur Dorsey? I wrote an article I would like to have published about the local Maryland men who served in the Civil War, and this photo would be a nice accompaniment.

Kind regards, Robyn Smith

Hi Richard,
I saw the bio that you added to James Francis Archibald Find A Grave #133457945 on familysearch.com. On that site, James is married to Helen G. Holcombe b. 1892, dau of Henry Woodburn and Adelia Hawkins. I don't think that she is the wife of your James Francis Archibald. My Helen G. is married about 1918 to a William Kirby. By 1921, they have their first daughter, Edith G. Kirby. Sorry for contacting you here, couldn't find you elsewhere. Diane

Sarah Shann (1810-1885), wife of Stephen Britton (1809-1885)
Dear Richard,
Thank you for photographing this headstone. Your work is a great help to those of us who live at a distance and cannot easily travel to these old cemeteries.

Do you have a personal interest in the Britton and or Shann lines? If so, would you like to collaborate on the research? Would you be interested in making a "rubbing" of the stone in an attempt to discover what else was written on it before the elements completely erase the marker? I've found that using shaving cream on the stone to fill in the recesses made by the characters sometimes makes the difference in readability.

Thanks once again,
Michele Britton Camera

Thank You!
Richard,

Thank you so much for the detailed information on my Great Grandfather, Francis Herbert Kellar; it means so much to learn about my families history.

Have you found any pictures or documents regarding his Knickerbocker Photos shop in NYC? I know he photographed the constructing of the Chrysler Building but I have yet to find any of his photos...

Ragunda Cemetery in Sweden
Hi Richard,

I see you created a Ragunda Cemetery back in 2003. Did you know there are actually two by this name? I have photos of both churches and graveyard areas that I could add, but I'd need to know first, which property was your person buried at... at the old or the newer church location?

I am writing to the other contributor who posted a cemetery named Ragunda as well... I hope these are both different locations instead of duplicates? I have family members buried at both and I visited there during the summer of 2012.

Kind regards, DebraLee

You seem to know a lot about John Hemwall. If he is somebody of unusual interest to you among all of your memorials, then I wanted to let you know that there are three naturalization documents posted online for John, beginning here https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1971-43481-8088-33?cc=2212212&wc=SF6L-RM9:1010138201,1060228501
