Alvilde M. Tanberg
Richard I was wondering if you have any relationship to Alvilde M. Tanberg? You posted her picture on this webpage. She is my Great Grandmother. She gave birth to Ethel Tanberg who married Clifford Milner who are my grand parents. They in turn gave birth to Robert O. Milner who was my father.
Thank you for your time

Re: Eugenie Caulkins & Robert Gill
These are my grandparents. I am working on a family tree. I entered Eugenie's info before I realized you had already done it. so...

1) Can I (or you) merge the two entries? and

2) Do you have genealogy for this family?

Thanks in advance.

Nathanael Fedde
Hi Richard, Nathanael was a friend of my grandmother's, when she went to St. Olaf the year 1905-1906. Are you related? Would you like a transfer? My grandmother kept a diary that year and I could send it to you electronically. It's 28 pages if you print it out, so warning on that. She mentions Fedde, as she called him, so that is why I did his memorial. I was trying to find all of her friends and also the people she boarded with. Just let me know.

RE: William O'Meagher, M.D. (1829-1896)
Thank you. Regarding the birth year discrepancy, in the obituary I attached as a photo it reads 1821 and the bio reads 1829. Do you have anything more positive such as a record?

John Howard Voorhees (1901-1974)
I thought you might be interested to know that there is another memorial (#51529642) for John. He is buried in Pleasant Plains Cemetery in Franklin, New Jersey. He was the second husband of one of my VERY distant cousins, Nina L Keator Bossow (1st husband's last name). He is buried with his parents, John and Mary.

RE: Portfolios
Hi Richard,

Thank you very much for following up on my request. Actually, I managed to get into your info with the help of someone out at Family Search. The info was helpful but I was a little disappointed that it wasn't the actual death certificate. I was particularly interested in his cause of death.

In any event, thank you so much for your time and consideration. It was very thoughtful of you to go the extra mile.

Best wishes,

Thanks so much for your quick reply! I do have Family Search account but not very adept at using it--more of an Ancestry person. I went in and checked their names but I don't know how to find the documents you posted.

Thanks for any help.

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
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

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.

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

James Francis Archibald
Hi Richard,
I saw the bio that you added to James Francis Archibald Find A Grave #133457945 on 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
