RE: Hannah Tear
I am not sure why the tombstone says a different name. I was not the one who added it. I do know that the Hannah Tear is the one who I am looking for as Alphonso's Mother. Hannah had married Norman Tear (or Teer or Tier). I will need to search the cemetery when I'm over that way to see if I can find the actual stone & take a picture of it. Sorry, that I couldn't be of more help.

Hi- Yes, this work sure has to be done correctly, or else. I'm 'dithering' about one over in Whitehall, NY. I contacted the cemetery to see where the person would be interred & was waiting for the ceremony before creating the page. He lived elsewhere, but is being buried in Whitehall with his wife. I had noted on hers I was awaiting actual cemetery before entering him. Meanwhile, someone else decided to post the obit from the paper & say 'cemetery unknown'. So, now I'm debating whether to make my own, or tell the guy the cemetery when the ceremony takes place on 7/2. He must have read the wife's obit, as he linked them. She was in our DAR Chapter, that's why I created hers. I was under the impression people weren't supposed to enter 'unknown' cemetery. Nancy

Hi Janet: Looking at the above number, the stone says HIEKOK, but the odd thing, when U look at the stones of his children, they clearly say HICKOK. Am working on locating DAR markers in the Rutland, VT cemeteries, so was looking at this listing. Don't know if U wish to change this; meanwhile, my list will say Hiekok/Hickok. No wonder geneaology requires detective work! Thanks once again for all you do for F/G. Nancy

re: Kellogg memorial
What I meant to say was, "Feel free to reply" or "You can reply." You would probably have inferred so.

Once again,

thanks for the advice. I did write to the manager of the other memorial, with no response. I will ask for a merge, but the Admin boards seem to be having some king of a revolution right now.

What, if any, of the information I've placed in these suggestion boxes you wish to place in the memorial is, of course, for you to decide.

Thank you very much

Thank you
Hi Janet,
Thank you for making those changes, and so quickly too!
I put in a few dozen such requests and maybe half have responded, so I feel good having this one done.
I’d love to see Herrick done. He has been a special cause of mine since I was a kid, a mystery that I had no information on. A distant cousin of mine, Rebecca Bromley Guenther, we share a common ancestor, Bethuel Bromley 1737-1808, crack the case and determined he was my great great grandfathers little brother. They were buried close to each other but no one remembered who he was so now I feel glad he’s no longer forgotten.

Certainly no apology needed at all! I get so turned around just dealing with my own family, especially because they keep using the same names over and over again generation after generation, I can’t imagine how you can keep up with so many different names and families.

Once again, I’d like to thank you for all that you have done!

Betsy Bromley Sherman #103109769
The text on her page says “daughter of Bethuel Bromley and Lucinda Burt”
The parental section has Barton Bromley as the father, which is correct.
She had a grandfather, uncle and brother named Bethuel but not her father.
She also had a brother that is not listed amongst the siblings,
Herrick Bromley #6666082
Could you please make these changes?
Thank you so very much!

RE: Parker Sawyer 87185926
The article is about Parker found not guilty of a charge filed by a servant.
I think that that paper is a likely source for his obituary.

RE: Abigail J. Pitkins
No problem. I think that the main reason I put in the edit..was that you had birth YEAR of 1808 for Abigail. Then I realized there were different birth DAYS ..after I put in the edit. That was why I mentioned mother's birth year.. in relation to the 1808 year for Abigail. Anyway.. thanks for all of your submissions. I use Findagrave a lot in my research.

RE: Abigail J. Pitkins
I'm sorry.. at that point I was probably confusing myself! I just went back and double checked two different links to the Cemetery transcriptions and they both match.
The discrepancy is between the transcriptions (Sep 6)and The Pitkin Family in America book (Sep 8).

Here are the two different listings:

Russell, d. 16 Mar 1863, 61, [soldier 1812, son of Stephen & Abigail [(BUCKLAND)] PITKIN, Vt.]
Clarissa Horsford, wife, d. 19 Jan 1852, 46, [Vt.]
**Abigail, 6 Sep 1832 - 27 Jan 1854
George W., 5 Oct 1824 - 8 Jun 1851
John H., 3 Jun 1842 - 2 Sep 1862
Ch. of Russell & Clarissa PITKINS

RE: Abigail J. Pitkins
Happy to give you sources. I was looking for somewhere to put that with the correction.

I've been researching the Pitkin family for over 30 years and have found many small errors in the A.P. Pitkin book.

I will admit that I have only recently started working on this particular line, so I haven't found proof of all items in Pitkin Genealogy, such as Russell and Clara's marriage date of 1824. That date, along with birth years of Abigail's siblings supports 1832 birth year.

For Abigail..
First.. her mother Clarissa was born in 1806 .. based on her own FindaGrave Entry..and the 1850 Census Clarissa is listed as age 44.

In same census Abigail is listed as age 19
Year: 1850; Census Place: Schroon, Essex, New York; Roll: M432_504; Page: 288A; Image: 207

I may have the wrong transcriptions of the South Schroon Cemetery on Rootsweb has death date as 6 Apr 1832

Russell, d. 16 Mar 1863, 61, [soldier 1812, son of Stephen & Abigail [(BUCKLAND)] PITKIN, Vt.]
Clarissa Horsford, wife, d. 19 Jan 1852, 46, [Vt.]
Abigail, 6 Sep 1832 - 27 Jan 1854
George W., 5 Oct 1824 - 8 Jun 1851
