I have been notified that your entry is a duplicate of an entry I made 2 years prior. Also note, that I personally visited & photographed Ephrian Seeley's grave site in Old Presbyterian Church Cemetery, a couple miles north of Old Stone Church Cemetery, indicating your entry is not in the correct cemetery and should be deleted.

Jane Minugh Memorial
Thank you, Dan.

My now deceased mother and I tried to find this grave in person, many years ago, when I lived in Manhattan. How I wish she was still alive, so I could share this page with her.

Many of our ancestors, including Jane's parents, William and Abigail, lived in lower NYC in its earliest days. They were mainly seamen. One ancestor, John Minugh, was a harbor master, during the era of Cornelius Vanderbilt.

Our Minugh history in the USA is documented, all the way back to New Amsterdam. "Valentine's History of Old New York City" lists our family name among the Huguenots, who fled to America with the Dutch in the 1600's.

Samuel Pierson
I am related to Samuel Pierson and can trace the lineage as far back as 1634. Samuel was a messenger for general George Washington during the battle of Monmouth. Samuel Pierson was a fine Horsman and a man of great courage and strength who Washington entrusted with several important and Perilous commissions in caring out one of these during the battle of Monmouth, Pierson was compelled to ride right in front of enemy lines of barrel and in full range of their guns; two horses were shot from under him, one of which in falling, injured the riders leg, but he was mounted on the third and carried out the commanders orders. Washington warmly commended him, and said "I feared when you set out with the orders that I should never see you again."

Giuseppe Verdi
The write up says G Verdi died in 1901 in Italy and is buried there. How can it be listed that he is buried in Forest Lawn in Buffalo? This is a commemorative statue reinstalled from Kleinhan's Music Hall. Info is confusing. Are there more details available? Or shouldn't it be clarified re: burial status?
Thank you.

Colonel John Banister
Hi Dan, the image of the colored painting you have for Col. John Banister is often confused with Col. John, but it is actually a John Banister from Rhode Island and was painted by painter Gilbert Stuart. I just posted the real picture of Col. John Banister of 5th great grandfather.
-Thank you.

I have added pertinent information for my ancestor James Croft on his memorial page. Your note spurred me to do this. (I was actually surprised that I hadn't done it before!) Thanks for the "nudge".

RE: Biographical information
Thanks for adding the edits and biographical information. I see that you have a special interest in the graves of veterans of the Revolution. Since there is no existing marker for David Baker I have sent an e-mail to the organization which is the Friends of the Battle of Brandywine requesting that they take a photo of the Brandywine Battlefield historical marker and send it to me so I can post it on David Baker's memorial page. I do not want to copy an existing photo of this marker which appears on the internet as this would violate the rules of For a number of years I did Revolutionary War reenacting and was a member of the Royal Welch Fusiliers reenactment group. I am a bit old for that kind of activity now but I still maintain a strong interest in Revolutionary War history. Many thanks, Eric Baker

Lewis Blachy d 1777 in Hilltop Cemetery NJ
I couldn't find the stone and I've photographed all stones in the cemetery. In the 1926 Cemetery directory it listed him as Lewis Blachley d 1777 and he should be next to Daniel Blachley d 1788. There are many missing or unreadable stones in this part of the cemetery.

Added a picture to his memorial page. I took it August 27, 1989. Who knew walking through old cemeteries and taking pictures would come in handy 25 years later! Using an online birth/death/age calculator, puts his birth date at about October 10, 1761. Here is the link if you ever find the need for one.

Hello - You took a photo for Josiah Woodruff at Connecticut Farms (#8868896). I am interested in his wife, Esther Earle, who is also buried there. Do you live nearby and if so, next time you are there could you please see if she is next to her husband? I'm interested in any Earle family there. Much appreciated - Kimberly
