RE: Wrong Death Date Jethro Delano

Please accept my apologies!

I went back to my family's record and also reviewed all the records on (which can be faulty as we all know). I checked The GHAAHD which reports my Jethro's birth, marriage and children but not his death. I found that there are two death dates reported elsewhere for my Jethro....1777 & 7/17/1787 but no place of burial (so here was my grand mistake!)

So I went back to The GHAAHD which can be very tedious to research and found this which is what I should have done in the first place!:

My Jethro was the Uncle of the Jethro in your post. The Brothers Jethro and Thomas moved to the same area (Amenia Duchess NY) at the same time. And all three of them lived in Amenia, Duchess, NY along with other close family members.

This is an incorrect death date. The date stated is that of another Jethro Delano who died this date and is buried in the South Burying Grounds, Tolland, CT. The Jethro I am referring to here died this date and was born 1732 to Johnathan Delano II and Elizabeth Lathrop.

Possibly the Jethro referred to in your Find A Grave Post was born between 1750-1754 and was shot at sea 1783/84. I would love to know the circumstances there. I found reference in other trees to him and he appears in the list of Sons of the American Revolution.

Jan..thanks so much for the uncropped photo..there appears to be lots of room around him..just so sad they did not do a headstone for her..or even on the back of his..that was so nice of you!..Sincerely, Wendy

RE: Crawford, Stephen
Hi Jan..thank you for the reply..I am glad I asked you..I put in a request for hers as well and will take it down. I will send a message to the person that holds her memorial and ask them to put a note on her Memorial reflecting "No Headstone"..thank you again so much. It does create problems when people only go by a list to set these up. She is buried in the same plot as he is (I think). I appreciate you taking the time to go there for me..Sincerely, Wendy

Thank you Jan so much for the great photo and for taking the time to that for me. Did you happen to notice if there was one for his wife? Your photos are very nice, clear and readable..Thank you again for being a member of Find A Grave.

RE: Old St. John's Cemetery, Middletown. Burns children
Hi Jan, Nice to hear from you. I keep telling people to take photos even if it's not the best photos - this is a good example of why. I remember this cemetery - I was getting ready to move out of state and ran into this cemetery one morning and tried to take as many photos as I could before my husband dragged me out! It wasn't until much afterwards that I saw how blue the photos were and had always meant to go back and retake. I'm doing well - I've been working on Mt Hope Cemetery near Yonkers - it's one of those cemeteries that nobody really focuses on but many of the people buried there were born in another state and then moved in later life to NY. And then of course the early 1900 immigrants. Marie

RE: Old Pine Cem in Waterbury CT
Hello. I really do not understand. Neither Hannah and Ebenezer had cemetery photos.I just asked over message page if you would be kind enough to manually add only the 2 cemetery photos..not gravesite. I really do not know what page controls allow or not. I just know that no default photos popped up on the listed memorial.
So thank you for adding Hannah's. It would be very appreciated if you could add then to Ebenezer's memorial #130811465.
Thanks very much.

Hello: I am requesting your permission to add your 2 photos of this cemetery ( the graves stones and the gate pier) to my memorials there for Ebenezer Blakeslee(# 730811465) and his wife Hannah Lupton Blakeslee. For some reason these great photos do not automatically pop up when this cemetery is listed. No photos pop up as the default photos.
Since I live far away and cannot photograph there I am first asking your permission and then requesting you add them to my memorial.
I appreciate your help on this.
Thanks very much.

James Kilborn (1707-1762)
If you refer to this memorial and your photo, you will see a grey Kilborn stone BEHIND the James stone that looks to have a death year of 1839. I am unable to make out the first name - but interested in this one also. I checked your memorials and you don't have a Kilborn memorial with a death year of 1839. Can you help me on this?

Hi ~ there are two cemetery entries in Greenwich (CT) that are listed as "Peck Cemetery" & "Pecks Cemetery". You have cemetery photos posted for both of them. Would you happen to know if they are two different cemeteries or the same one, please? There is no street address mentioned for Pecks Cemetery, so I can't compare it to an address for Peck Cemetery. Thanks very much.

Jan -- Thanks for transferring my great great grandmother to me. And thank you for your public service adding so many memorials. Also, good information on your profile -- everyone should read it (I should have before I requested a change, but luckily, after reading it, I understood the proper thing to do.) Elizabeth
