I think your finding was more accurate than mine, I don't think she married Claude Van Alstine as she died in 1890, also I believe Minnie in the same cemetery was John's second wife. I have to say you are awesome for this find.

Lewis H. Spalding (Husband of Viletta)

Harvey Delos Spalding

Hope this helps with the details. I would be proud to take over these monuments if you are willing to transfer them. I have a large amount of Spalding family history in the Northeast.

Thanks, Craig

RE: Jeremiah and Bridget reprise
Thanks for everything and do appreciate all you do for me.

You do go way beyond the norm to help and I too looked at the headstone enlarged and came to the same conclusion you did too

RE: Jeremiah and Bridget reprise
I appreciate the photos so much. I was not sure about the Mother birth date. Is that 1834 or 1884? I put 1834 as I thought 18 years old would not be marked mother since the father was much older. Also, I don't see that we should guess at the face down monument but if you have a picture of it, I would hang on to it. Is there a caretaker there at the cemetery that might not know it is laying down? Our caretaker has picked up the face down monument in our cemetery and repaired some headstones that were vandalized. Also, the caretaker might have the name and dates of the headstone. Just a suggestion here, as I know cemeteries handle things so differently. We have a man in town who owns one of the other cemeteries and he has neglected it to the point of so much anger at him and the cemetery is almost beyond restoration. Also, I am not a relative of these people so do not need them transferred to me. I guess they need to be linked with each other though.

Oh my Gosh! How can anyone be mad at someone who goes the extra mile. So many times there are disappointments with Find A Grave as the years have taken their tole on many stones. I recently had to work around vandelism and stones laying face down and one I was able to get a photo of cause it was lying face up. Thanks for all your efforts and there is no hurry for any of them!

I accessed I have requested some edits to connect Monroe John (153180718), Webster C. (153091237) and Frank to John and Sarah Rafter Woodworth. They also had a son named Elijah born about 1865. Monroe John was married to Lola E Morse (153180719). Webster C. was married to H Bessie (153091238). I did not find a spouse for Frank. Elijah was married to someone named Laura (born 1869). Ancestry did not indicate any relationship for John to Ransom Woodworth. According to one tree John's parents were Charles and Miriam Wilson Woodworth. Frank does not show up in the 1865 or 1870 census with the family, so if this Frank is part of the family, he would have probably died in childhood. I did not put in the edits for the spouses. It would not take them since I had already requested the others. Perhaps you can do those. Hope this helps. Judy

First of all, you are NOT pestering me. My research has been with the Brewers so I will have to see what I can find through on the Woodworths. Perhaps a couple that have fallen over are for the infants of Cassius and Ellen - I don't see stones for them. You could go ahead and transfer any of the Woodworths to me and I will try to connect them, or, I will do the research with the names you have given me and send you edits. Either way. I am glad to have whatever grave marker stone pictures you have taken. Thank you. Judy

William Briidgen
Hi Kathy,

Thanks for letting me know about the extra photo. It is William Henry Bridgen's parents monument which actually is also at Mountain Ridge. I have written to the contributor to ask him to remove it. He had previously posted it correctly on both parents memorial pages, but with Father and son both being William, some confusion must have happened.

Hopefully it will be corrected soon.

Thanks again,

I changed the date to match the stone. I think the obituary might agree with the stone, also. Thanks for alerting me. He was a very interesting and confusing person to research, Judy

RE: Charles and Ida May Kinyon
Hi, Kathy
Charles and Ida May were the brother and sister of my Great Grandfather, Bert C. Kinyon. I am glad the info can help you out. I would be happy to take over management of Charles and Jennie's memorial. Please let me know how you are connected. Thanks for contacting me.
Take Care, Kathie {KAY}

RE: William Kimball and Marion Gilmour Kimball Kocher Memorial photos
I'm guessing that the (other) Gilmour's stones are near Marion (Gilmour) Kimball Kocher's stone (Memorial #149422800) since her maiden name was Gilmour. Hope this helps! Thanks again!

RE: Nathan Gallup
Hello Kathy! I am not a direct descendant of Nathan, but my mom was a Gallup, descended from his younger brother John B. Gallup. We have portraits of their parents, Nathan Gallup and Pamelia Baird, but unfortunately none of Nathan, John B., or the other siblings in that generation. Anyway, I will be very interested in the other information you have, but there is certainly no rush! Thank you!

RE: Leppien
My Great Grand Aunt, Emeline (Emma) Buckner's second husband was William J. Bartz, son of Julius Parline & Ottelia Razler Bartz.
You have me wondering now because there are two Bartz families with children that have similar names.

Herman and Susan Lenhart Bartz had 5 sons, Frank, Alfred, William, George and Charles.
Julius Parline & Ottelia Razler Bartz had 11 children, including sons, Herman F., Charles Daniel, William J., and Frederick Edward.

Herman & Susan lived in Lockport, Julius & Ottelia lived in Middleport.

This is to the best of my knowledge. So, if your neighbor was the son of Herman & Susan, could it have been Alfred who went by Fred, instead of Frederick Edward, who I believe was the son of Julius & Ottelia?

Let me know what you have....

Oh, thanks so much for the transfers !

Best Wishes,

RE: Nellie Steen
Thanks so much for taking the pictures and creating the memorials for the Mountain Ridge Cemetery. Please transfer Nellie Steen's memorial to me. My profile number is 47114977. I will ask for Thomas's as well from the owner of that memorial so that I can have both of my great-grandparents. Thanks again.

Thoma Steen
Thank you Kathy for taking the picture of Thomas Steen's headstone at Mountain Ridge Cemetery. He is my great-grandfather but only because my grandmother was his adopted daughter. I noticed that his death date is not inscribed on his headstone. I have put that task on my list of things to do. Thanks so much.

Yes, Elizabeth is William & Emelia's daughter and Edward Wolter is Elizabeth's husband.

Go ahead and link Elizabeth to her parents,or if you still are willing to transfer them, I can do the family links.

Thanks again,
