Thanks for the picture but it is really blurry. Can you retake it?

Also can you do others in the list?

1. Elizabeth Perine Mersereau:

2. Joshua Mersereau:

3. Marie "Mary" Corsen Mersereau:

They all buried in Dutch Reformed Church in Staten Island.

Thank You!

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,1060228501

I have no connection to John.

RE: I created a duplicate
Done. I added a couple of photos of plaques from the ceremonial area of the cemetery. Use them if you wish. You can just refer to my Find A Grave bio for any credit you wish to add.

I'm happy the photo has found a proper home. Regards.

I'd be happy to forward the photo for you, but I don't see an email address on your profile. I see "leave a public message" and a link to a Wikipedia site.

John Staats Jr (1690 birth)
Hi Richard,

I'm working on my family tree and came across something that appears to be a misstep. John Staats Jr has a birthdate of about 1690, as modified by yourself. Hi wife was born in 1745 (Geertye Quick) and John Staats Jr in FamilySearch died in 1741. I'm trying to find the father of Rynear Staats, born in 1786, and his father's name is John Staats...but I don't believe his father was born in 1690. Could you help figure out if the birthdate for John Staats (1690) could be an error? Please send me an email at

Thank you so much for your help!

Yes, all Gallaudets are related one way or another. I am related to Earl James Gallaudet. I have to see how I am though. Why do you ask?

RE: Osbert Edwin Williams, Jr. (December 15, 1875 - October 25, 1917)
Dear Richard,

Your interest to create a page on Wikipedia about my late uncle, O. E. Williams, and one of his associates, E. O. Weeks, intrigues me. Are you related to them? Your details that appear on the Wikipedia site are flawed. Have you read my 406 page book about these men? The Scranton news article you reference on Wikipedia about Weeks’ disastrous crash was followed by a corrected account of what occurred during that crash.

When the fall weather arrives I had fully intended to create entries on Wikipedia for each of my late uncle’s associates as well as himself. During this fall I plan to take down my website and the Wikipedia pages will be an enhancement of what I featured on my site about those men.

Would you be so kind to remove and delete the pages you have created on Wikipedia about my late uncle and any of his associates?

While following the career about my late uncle, my goal was to assure that anything about his life MUST be as accurate as possible. Too much today that is published on the web has fictionalized facts.

Please allow me to finish my project about my late uncle and his associates. Afterwards if you have new materials to contribute, do let me know. Or notice that I have made an entry in error, I’m always open to learn what needs correcting, and why. I’m always on the lookout for missing factors about my late uncle’s career.

Most sincerely,

Nancy Mess

RE: Pauline Schneider (c1878-1932) Engelmann
Hi Richard- yes I took photos. The Engelmann plot has a marker that looks newer than 1950 and I was wondering if it had been replaces. My great grandparents Pauline & Henry are buried there and her brother Henry Schneider & wife too. What I found odd was that Henry Schneider's children are buried in the Schneider plot, even though there are still 2 empty graves in the Engelmann plot. Was wondering if you knew why. The photos I took look like the ones who have, but would you like me to email them to you anyway? All the best-

Schneider Family
Hi Richard- I visited the graves of the Schneider family in Fairview Cemetery yesterday and was wondering if you possibly had info about the Engelmann plot that Henry & Catherine Schneider are buried in. Henry's children are buried in the Schneider plot a few rows away.Thanks- Lisa

Louis J Freudenberg
I have a photo of Mr. Freudenberg's grave marker in Doyle Veterans Cemetery, but I cannot post it because the maximum number of photos allowed are already posted. Do you want to clear one so his marker can be shown on his memorial?
