RE: Levi S. Smith
One source for his middle name is Smith family genealogical records:

Simons was his mother's maiden name. You might wish to consider the following info I collected for a paper I wrote on the pastors of the now extinct Monkton Baptist Church:

Pastor at Monkton, Addison Co. VT 1853-59

Levi Smith was the son of Eli & Jerusha (Simons/Simmons) Smith, born 11 Mar 1817 Granville, Washington NY, died 18 Dec 1895. He married 20 Oct 1836 Fair Haven VT Julia A. Graves, born 23 Mar 1819 Bristol, Addison VT, died 19 Oct 1900 Williamstown, Berkshire MA Levi and Julia are buried in North Granville Cem., North Granville, Washington NY, Find A Grave #132310321 and 132310378.

Discovered children:
Mary Elizabeth (Smith) Storrs, 1838-1918, Find A Grave #132310429
James Edward 1841-1920

The VT Baptist records list the following churches Levi Smith pastored: ESSEX 1841-42, WILLISTON 1841, PASSUMPSIC 1841, PITTSFORD CENTER 1842-45, IRA 1846-52 and, MONKTON 1853-59.

1850 Census, Granville, Washington NY: Levi Smith 33 NY, Meth Clergyman; Julia 31 NY, Mary 13 NY, James 9 NY

Hi Janet,
Received your edits for Katherine and want to explain why I need to decline them, the photos attached to this memorial are not for Katherine.

Here is the link I have for some information on Katherine, I believe that I have the wrong date of death for her and need to do more research.

I will ask Jen to remove the photos from this memorial. Thank you very much for your edits. I see that I can't ask Jen as she has no link.

RE: Laura (Olin) White
I extrapolated from the census. In 1910 she was living in Hamburg. In 1920 she moved to Buffalo to live with one of her children. With her advanced age it makes sense she wasn't going to move again. The same child is living in Buffalo in 1925. If you require a death certificate for proof then I suggest you leave it as is.

Thanks for checking.
I've never heard of the "Jenks transcriptions". Where can I find this?

RE: Ellen A Lee Wallace Bragg
Janet, yes John and Ellen had only one child, Francis Albert "Frank" Wallace. Lena is from her second marriage to Eugene Bragg. Ellen had a total of two children. Francis and Lena are half siblings, connected by Ellen.
Hope this helps.

RE: Vera Vose
Thanks for catching that typo and for making the other edits and adding the photo to the Charles E. Vose memorial. Just wish I could find Vera's mother's, Sarah J. Tapper Vose's, gravestone. She died sometime between 1880 and 1895.

I have seen others who have written that they feel the same way. I can understand that, but it also helps to connect family members and give a more complete listing.

Thank you for sending me your reasoning.

Thank you for adding the foot marker of Betsey Rathbone! It is greatly appreciated. I hope to visit her grave site again next June on a return trip to Vermont. Again thank you, Rob Rathbun

Rudolph Hulett
"Rudolph Hulett's name may have included "Albert," but it's my policy to match my memorials to the names on the gravestones. Otherwise, someone will come along behind me and create a duplicate memorial."

Of course, it's entirely up to you but...I found him on a Census as Albert R Hulett. I have numerous memorials that have another name that doesn't appear on the marker and to my knowledge no one has made duplicates. Just wanted to make this information available. Again, it's entirely your choice.

RE: E. Adelbert Wells # 52970605
Hi Janet. I have 23 photograph and tintype JPGs recently sent to me by a Walter Hooker over for several of my very distant cousins. Walter’s hobby is collecting and scanning old photos, both front and back, for their Ancestry relatives. Somehow he managed to find me through Ancestry. These photos include a family group for: Edwin Wells Gibson, Edmund Harrison Gibson, Harry Potter, Jonas Gibson, Lucia Loomis Blossom, Rebecca Blossom Wells, and Roxie Potter.

I cleaned each of them up with Photoshop before posting to my Ancestry pages, along with trying to find their Find-A-Grave listings. At this point I will gladly send them all to you as an email attachment for your further disposition if you provide an email address. You can reach me at prestonadams3 Kindest regards, SP Adams, Sarasota, FL.

RE: Frank Howland sponsorship
Hi Janet, yes I'm still working on those Howland, Simpson, Dodds, Harkness etc connections.
I hope to eventually sponsor all of Abbie & Frank's Howland children, (I have the boys left I believe).

The Howland children's many letters covering 30+ years of life in Waterford and Greenvale Twps in Dakota County, has kept me entertained and warm and happy through many a cold winter night- reports of the crops in the fields, apple harvests and butter making, town fairs, who was sick, who was in love, friends and neighbors and especially family pitching in when bad weather and bad times came, simpler times in days gone by...

Traci's Mom
Janet, I agree with your policy on edits. Actually, I contacted findagrave personnel and informed them I will not accept edits at all. They understand where I'm coming from. I am, though, more than happy to transfer the memorials in question (unless they are related to me). This is stated on my profile page. Many people don't read my profile page though. Some people are very nice abt my policy and some get upset. When they see I will transfer the memorials in question they're usually fine.

Hi Janet,

Not sure what you are talking about Harvey Memorial. Before you accuse someone, please make sure you look at the person that was the contributor.
I have not created a findagrave memorial in months.

RE: Elizabeth Rockwell Warren
My source for Eliza Rockwell Warren's memorial (#28295472) update comes from "The Rockwell Family" book, 2nd edition, published 2008, page 384, by Kenneth W. Rockwell.

Secondly, Nathan and Eliza had five (5) children. You may want to add Henrietta born and died 1850.

RE: Lois Gibs Memorial# 132916099
Hi again, I never said she was born in Pawlet did I ? If I did, I miswrote. I wanted her birth year corrected for the most part. I agree with you on the headstones. Even if they're wrong, they are set in stone, pardon my pun. Thanks again

RE: Brockways
Hi Janet: hearing about the unfortunate condition of these graves makes me all the more appreciative of the important work you've been doing to document and photograph them. My aunt has been working on the Brockway branch of our family tree for the past few years and it's a real blessing to be able to see photos of these stones, since neither of us are able to travel. Thank you so very much. -Adrian

Added by Dowling on Jul 31, 2016 9:32 AM

Wow! Thanks so much for the additional Brockway photos! This means so much to the family. :)

RE: Andrew Potter
You are most welcome. I am working on getting your other St. Lawrence County pics also, You have done much work on my Howe/Kilbounre family from Wells, VT which I greatly appreciate.

Your work is very well researched and trustworthy so you have helped my family history so much. My great grandfather Edgar Aldous has a one year discrepancy in his headstone birthdate and his other records. Seems to be a a common dilemma with the Howe family ( he married Edith Howe).

If you are ever in the GRanville, NY/WElls, VT area and have time, I would love to meet and talk about the work you have done for so many in my families.
