RE: 55250949 Robert William Bostwick
Thank you so very much for all that you have done.

If you could find the reference, it would be wonderful. My uncle and I are trying to collect family photos, and your contribution has been a godsend.

Thank you so much,

Adam C. Moore

I was delighted when I saw the picture you had put at Robert William Bostwick, 55250949. He is my third-great grandfather.

I wanted to know if you had a better resolution image of the picture since this one is only 66K. I would like a better quality image, if that is possible.

I also want to know the provenance of the photo. Do you have any more pictures from that family that you would be willing to share with me?

Again, thank you so very, very much for the photo. i appreciate the good work that you're doing.

Elizabeth (nee) Maul Powers Coonley
Your memorial for Elizabeth Powers Coonley Find A Grave #21889823 has been duplicated with Elizabeth Maul Powers Find A Grave #95768075. Elizabeth Maul married 1st Justus [Joest] Powers and 2nd John Coonley. It would be less confusing if this were fixed. Thank you, Ann

grave #17835523

Hi there. First let me thank you for all of the memorials you've posted connected to my family! I was reviewing the memorial for Thomas Weller and noticed that the date for the last child listed could not possibly be correct (Zaccheus Sherman Weller (1820 - 1898). This Zaccheus would have been born after Thomas and his wife were deceased. Just wanted to let you know so you could remove/correct it. Thanks again! Laura

Mary Buell Loomis #14867566
My suggested edits for this memorial are based on the book; "The Loomis Family In America" Page 134. Here is listed the family of Deacon John Loomis which includes a quarter of a page devoted to the biography of his eldest daughter, Mary, including the engraving on her tombstone. Thomas and Hannah (Porter) Loomis also did have a daughter , Mary. Per page 137 of same book, it states that their daughter was born Sept. 2, 1683...married Benjamin Adams Nov. 25, 1719 , and died March 11, 1755 at Colchester. Thank you.

William Peters: There are at least two people who know the facts {as opposed to guesses} about this William Peter's marriage and death records. You and me. Every family tee I have seen has got him living and buried in North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. They also have him married to at least three different people other than Phebe Hungerford. Amazing. It is refreshing to see the correct information for a change. Keep up the good work. Accuracy is important.

Hi Jan,

My question is have you ever come across a cemetery called Brumbley Cemetery? It is in the Town of Norwich New London County, Connecticut. I am researching Spicers and Brombley/Brumbleys buried in Norwich. I found the cemetery through a Google search but can't find it listed in Find A Grave.

The website gives no location for the cemetery and I found it through There are just 19 names listed. Here is the link

Any help you can give me would be appreciated...
Thanks, Mary Lou

John Gilbert Peak
Dear Jan,

Thank you for transferring the grave to me. Most of all, thank you for adding the grave to Find-A-Grave so that I knew about it. I am a retired teacher on Long Island and can't travel around that much anymore.


Mrs. Barbara Farrand Doxey,
a relative of John Gilbert Peak(e) through my great grandmother Helen Peake (1829 - 1891), music teacher at Hudson, New York, and second wife of Joseph Steevens Farrand. At the age of 35, Helen married and had five children who lived to adulthood. She also helped raise many stepchildren.

Hi Jan,

Thank you for all the pictures that you post of grave markers!!

I have an ancestor that you have posted pictures for. I am requesting your permission to use them in my genealogy database and a possible book (years from now) that will be given to family members. I would credit you John C. Anderson as having taken the pictures.

His name is Samuel Penfield and he is buried in Alderbrook Cemetery in Connecticut.

Thanks again,

Linda Rogers

Thanks for the prompt edit request. Wish everybody was as quick. Another person and I are working on the same group of people and we are sometimes overlapping edits, so this being done is great. You have done a wonderfull job at Pierce Hollow. Makes the searching so much easier. M.Andersen

Stephen Frost
Hi Jan,
Could you please take a look at Stephen Frost FindAGrave #136212033? Is this the same person as your #20847633 - the husband of Elizabeth Lockwood?
I realize they are in different cemeteries, but they sound like the same person, and I am trying to reconcile where Stephen was truly buried. He's my 4th great grandfather.
