Mary McMackin
Hi Mark,

I appreciate your thoughtfulness in transferring this memorial.

I did have one for her at Saint George United Methodist Church Burial Ground, which I guess I should remove. I believe the Find a Grave preference is to use the cemetery to which the remains are transferred. But then, what does one do with the original inscription?

"Matilda McMackin, daughter of D. & M. McMackin, who departed this life August 26, 1828 two years & four months & 15 days.
Also Mary McMackin, born November 11, 1822 and departed this life January 17, 1823, age 10 weeks and five days."

Guess I'm still confused.

RE: Enoch Moses
Mark, Thought it better for you to add the great data to Moses's sites. I was surprised that there was no actual Welsh Burying Ground site. Penna Vital Records, Vol 3 on ancestry has many of the headstone writings, but suspect you already have them from another source. Looking forward to the new site. Jane

Killena Smith
Hi- Thank-you for sharing her obituary. It's quite possible that the headstone is correct - just a bad photo. I will check the next time I go to get another photo.

Welsh Burying Ground
I see no site on Find A Grave for the Welsh Burying Ground. Perhaps is would be good if you started one. At times if folks are removed, I add them to
"both" cemeteries with the added information.
I transferred Moses to you. Jane

Memorial 21003300
Hi Mark,
You have linked Judith Heist, wife of John Stern, to Johan Adam Heist and Susanna DeLong as her parents. That is actually incorrect. According to the records of Rev. B. E. Kramlich, she was the daughter of John Heist and Elisabeth Neuman.

debenneville burying ground
Thanks for all the work you do! I have two lists of burials at the deBenneville Burying Ground and both include Nicholas Burkhart died 1797 and his wife Catharine died 1804. One of the lists also includes a Samuel Burkhart died in 1803. Would you like me to send this to you? Do you know who administers this graveyard? I appreciate your help. Jane in NC

RE: wife of Dr. Henry C. James
Hi Max,

Thank you for your reply. Looking in the census records does seem to show that first wife Anna E. "Annie" Iszard died in 1923, Dr. Henry C. James married Abbie C. I tried to find an obit for Dr. Henry C. James but no luck so far. Maybe you will at the Historical Society.

Best wishes,
Mary Hill

Mary Hill
wife of Dr. Henry C. James
There seems to be some confusion about which Abbie was married to Dr. Henry C. James. See:
Their birth and death dates are different but both are listed as married to Dr. Henry C. James.
Since Annie Find A Grave Memorial# 13845257 is listed as 19 years older than Dr. Henry C. James, it is probably the other Annie that married Dr. Henry C. James, Find A Grave Memorial# 13845229.

RE: Sarah DeTurck
Mr. Maxwell,

Many thanks for the updates. Seems the only one missed though was Sarah's maiden name: Marquette.

I'll have to look into the alternate, never know. And my father stated much the same idea on why you all had not crossed paths.

Look forward to working with you in the future.

Phebe Bassett; I have used your picture of this lady's tombstone on my husband's family tree. If this is not okay, please let me know and I will remove it.
Thank you for taking the picture!

RE: Joseph Rodman Drake
I looked at the New York City Parks bio you mentioned so I sent an email to them to draw this error to their attention. The nephew that quite possibly some American Drakes descend from, Francis Drake did not hold the title of Sir. That can only be handed down to descendants of Sir Francis Drake if there were any and according to all historians I have read, there were none. If the family tree I looked into on is correct, there were no Francis Drake's in Joseph Rodman Drake's ancestry.
Thanks, Jim G.

RE: Joseph Rodman Drake
BEST OF LUCK TO YOU. I know sometimes Findagrave is difficult to get a response from; sometimes they come through.
I was looking into Martha(Richardson)Leggett who is also buried in that same cemetery who is my 1st cousin, 9 times removed. Her parents Martha Mead and John Richardson were one of the two partners that purchased from the Indians the land known as West Farms, now Bronx. It may be that John and Martha are also buried there as it was their land originally.
Take care, Jim German

Joseph Rodman Drake
Hello Mark,

I read your bio for Joseph Drake and noticed you had him listed as a descendant of Sir Francis Drake. Sir Francis Drake had no children, so he cannot be a descendant. I am related to the Drake family and I have researched Sir Francis Drake which has led me to believe most Drakes that came to America descend from one of his brothers but more than likely from cousins. In Sir Francis Drake's will, he left his estate to a nephew, Francis Drake. He died in the Caribbean childless (unless he sewed some wild oats no one knows about). The best I can tell is I descend from one of his brothers.
Thanks, Jim German #47305135

Thanks Mark:

I revised my note on the memorial for him in the new cemetery (71518462) and added a direct link to the one for the toppled stone.

RE: William D Miller #98642564
From US-30/Lancaster Avenue, turn onto Church Road (right if you're coming from Bryn Mawr; left if you're coming from Philadelphia). Church Road will become Linwood Avenue when it intersects with Argyle Road. Turn left onto East Athens Avenue, and you'll come across St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery

Barker transfer
Once again, you are my hero! Thank you for transferring Harriet. BTW--the Bailey's you transferred turned out to all be related. Husband, wife and kids--what a fantastic find!! The Bailey's and Barker's intermarried, so, we're all just one big happy family. I am so grateful for the Find a Grave volunteers. Can't imagine what we would do without their hard work and assistance.

RE: Baileys of Rock Valley Cem.
