RE: Charles Buckner
Hello Kathy,

Maybe I should have taken down my photo request because I did talk to, David Ross, the new mortician at Hamilton & Clark and he only found a record for one of my Uncles, but there are four.

Years ago, my Grandfather Carl Buckner, worked for Hamilton and Clark doing the "tufting" or lining of the inside of caskets, he later was a school bus driver for the Wilson Central District. He and my grandmother had four infant sons who died within a week of birth that were buried at Greenwood.

Mr. Ross said that there is a section between the road and the fence commonly known as the "Baby Garden," where they are probably buried, but even given the one record he found there is nothing that identifies the site clearly.

My Mother remembers the tiny caskets being in the living room at home, so we know there were family funeral services, but I don't have anything further to go on.

Being that my Grandparents were not affluent at the time, it is possible that the burials occured as part of a "work" arrangement rather than a business transaction, but this too is only speculation on my part.

The Hamilton & Clark establishment has been my family's funeral home of choice for years, they buried both my Grandparents and three of my own children. ( I am lucky enough to have both my parents surviving into their 80's).

So, I thank you sincerely, but maybe I should have taken the request down, once I found out the information from Mr. Ross. What do you think? I was just in hopes that someone local might have the clue I needed, or that somewhere there was a caretaker for Greenwood who held the old records.

Best Wishes,
Ellen Martin Herrmann

The Michels
Me again,
Here's what I found with the Michels.
Buried with Andrew and Amelia are Ervin and Anna Michel. As you will see, based on the dates and how the four graves are grouped it appears that Ervin and Anna are the Michel's Son and Daughter-in-Law.
I have added Memorial Pages for those two and have linked Ervin to his parents and spouse.
Again, if you think this is in error please let me know.
And again, I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Along with the photos for Youart and Erma Fletcher I have also added a Memorial Page and photos for their son, Charles.
I have also connected Charles to the two of them. If this is in error please let me know.
Thank you for your request. I hope you enjoy all of the pictures.

Hi Kathy,

You might want to add the plot map that you have for Greenwood Cemetery to the Greenwood Cemetery home page and then give it to the city.

Thank you for double checking my work. I do so enjoy it . As for same dates, they are on different plots and I felt the same as you. Not sure how to rectify or research this coincidence . Keep me informed.

Thank you for the message I got of both of their memorials. The person that transferred their memorials to me created them in 2010. The others are done by the same person, I'm not really sure why she did them. She created them in 2012.
I'll contact her and find out what's going on.
Thank you again,
Rebecca

RE: Agnes Bunker - 66818370 - reprise
I have corrected that. And thanks for sending me duplicates info. I was eventually going to go through the memorials and look for them but you have saved me time. I now have less than 750 pictures left to go through!

Kathy ... no need to transfer .. don't think they're directly related to my Coombs line. Pics look great. Got out yesterday for a few "requests," but its been really HOT down here lately. Thanks again for your efforts. If you're like me, Find A Grave has been a valuable asset in tracing my tree.
Cheers,

John B Coombs Addition
Kathy:
I've made it somewhat of a hobby to watch for new Coombs' on Find A Grave and fill in the blanks for info not normally found on their memorials.

The 1930 Census for Wilson, Niagara, NY lists:
- John Coombs, b.abt 1875
- William Coombs, b.abt 1870 (brother)
- Lottie Coombs, b. abt 1885 (sister)

Most of the other info I see on John has his middle initial as "M" vice "B" ... perhaps he had 2 middle names?

Guessing that W. Henry is William

Guessing "Lotta" is "Lottie"

Didn't want to submit recommended edits with bouncing above off of you as you have your sources/photos?

Thanks for your work.

I'm so sorry to hear about the care of Greenwood Cemetery. Looking through the book "Souvenir History of Niagara County, New York
Commermorative of The 25th Anniversary of The Pioneer Association of Niagara County 1902", I found a history of Greenwood Cemetery. I'm sure you have already seen it, if not, I would be happy to send you a copy. Let me know if you want it or you can find it at https://dcms.lds.org/delivery/DeliveryManagerServlet?dps_pid=IE953054&vid=FHD&vid=FHD on page 137.
Thanks again,

I am now able to research international records to assist us with our families from other countries. I will post those records as you deem appropriate on your Find A Grave memorials.

I have begun work on George Dale, as you suggested. His birth may have been in England or New York, we shall see...

Thoughtfully, Paul

RE: Gabrielle Todd
Kathy -

No worries, sometimes I swear that the messaging system on this site is conspiring against my seeming to be a reasonably intelligent sane person.

That said, there was a bug with the coordinates that I just discovered. I've lately been using my iPod Touch for Find A Grave photo's, and it's worked fine. It's not an iPhone, so it needs wi-fi in order to get any coordinates, but it's still saved me a step from downloading photos from my camera and then uploading them. And then I usually try to manually enter a grave location anyway. Well, I started going back through some from March (Gabrielle's was one of them) to catch up on some locations I fell behind on and noticed that the app, even though it knew I wasn't uploading pics live from my camera at the cemetery, it had automatically submitted the coordinates for my home from which I had added the pictures to the site. So I rather quickly went through to remove the erroneous coordinates. (I'm not so concerned about people stalking my house, but to my knowledge there are no burials here.)

So, let me get over to my location notes for his grave and I'm going to submit one more edit removing the coordinates and trying to give at least a plot location. :)

Please call the cemetery office and ask for the grave location. Photo requests cannot be fulfilled without Section, Range/Row and Lot numbers as cemetery is too big. Thank you!
