Daniel Amos
yes Richard and Daniel are the sons of Richard ads Elizabeth( Ritter) Amos. I tried since putting data online with City Of Ny Historical records . To get their home parish to at least hang a plaque in recognition of what Richard Sr and Christopher likely did in the War. It is in an old book on The Village that they were " Revolutionary War heroes". Online says they were trustees of Lord Admiral Warren. And that after the war they got all his estate and whatever he didn't take with him back to England. Put the two together I must conclude they were spies not affiliated with Culper. OR involved in some kind of economic sabotage on the British. Tories wouldn't get such a valuable gift if they worked for the losing side. Love to talk with you about this Revolutionary War puzzle around the grave of two kids. A daughter Anna Amos lived to adulthood and married into an old Dutch NYC banking family. .

Richard Amos in Saint Paul s Churchyard
i researched that stone. Based on what s online and the NY Historical Society on 5 th Avenue it is likely his dad and uncle were spies for the Continental Army right under the nose of a Lord a Admiral. Richard Sr and Christopher Amos got all the Lord Admiral s estate( Wrest Village now) after the war. If they were Tories this wouldn't have happened. I tried to give a plaque to the rector of Saint Luke s onChristopherSt to the 2 Vets. Don't know if it was put in the church. The Amos home parish

Ben Fletcher
Captain Francis Marsden
Hello Dan,

Would like to thank you for adding this gent, he is a distant relation. My Great Grandmother was a Marsden. Is he a relation of yours too? I have added a picture of his monument (I believe the grave has been moved when Wakefield Church turned into a Cathedral).

I understand that he died at Burntwood Lodge (Hall). Not sure if this was his father’s house or some relation as I understood him to have lived in Kettlethrope Hall. I understand he had a sister called Hana Maria who married a John Carr of Hornby (a relation to the Yorkshire builder, John Carr of York).

I read that he was known as “Frank” by other officers and that he was “well pounded” at the Battle of Bunker Hill, but did his duty. Unfortunately he never recovered.
All the best

If you can, please leave virtual flowers for my WIlliam Hoyt and son Benjamin who were in the Revolutionary War. I have their story in my findagrave memorials and my profile.

William Francis Grealis
I declined your edit for birth of William because his death certificate was very clear to read April 3, 1907 and I didn't find his birth record. I have since found a record that states April 3, 1908 like you suggest so I have changed it. Thank you for you input.

Abbie McMillen
Thomas Barrow
I have been searching high and low to try to find out why John McComb (1763-1853, famous New York Architect) refers to Thomas Barrow as "MY BELOVED UNCLE". They were both involved in Trinity Church but i cannot find the family tie, and It's driving me nuts. Also, the relationship of the same John McComb to William Pers "my greatly esteemed uncle" who died of yellow fever in 1798. Were these men somehow related to his mother, Mary Davis? I can't find out ANYTHING about her. Any leads would be sincerely appreciated.

You took a photo of a news article for the death of Capt. Peregrine White, Sr. He died in 1704. He lived in Marshfield, Plymouth, Mass. He was born on the Mayflower. Anyway, would it be acceptable to you if I could gain a copy of this article from you??? I would really appreciate having it for my files as I build one branch of my family tree. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks for your time. and my name is Heather

I appreciate your allowing me to use your photos.

I assume that you think that there is no reason to pursue trying to get a better photo of the inscription.

Thank you so much.
