RE: Homer Elton
There is not much more to say. Except Homer and Washington
Eltons were cousins.
There was a man (ex. Principal of a school in Newfane who wrote a book about the civil war vets from the local area. on the 8th N.Y.Vol.Heavy Artillery unit. His name was Wilbur R Dunn. Book was called Full Measure Of Devotion, Part 1 and Part2. In this book it states the above two cousins.
It has the death cert. of Washington. and correspondence how his wife had to prove she was married to him , in order to collect on a death pension. The book was written in 1997.
Homer, was wounded and captured at Reams Station( Libby Prison). on Aug.25th,1864.Had 2 or 3 toes amputated. Paroled to a hospital in Annapolis,Md. in Sept. 1864.I helped Mr. Dunn on this information,I contracted from The Nat. Archives in D.C.

Thank you for adding such a clear photo of the gravestone. I've added his parent links now for someone to find one day. I'm not related myself. Keep doing the wonderful job that you do, Kathy. ~Terry

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,

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!

RE: John B Coombs Addition
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.

John B Coombs Addition
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 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!

RE: Lempkas in Hillside Cemetery
Thanks very much for the follow-up. Yes, my spouse's grandmother was a Lempka of which there were 12 children that survived through adulthood. I am happy to take over the management if you don't have a more direct relationship. I am new to Find-A-Grave but I am actively getting my families entered. I am very thankful for people like you that posted information -- much of it critical for finding relatives.

RE: Your Suggested Edits for Coles and Cooks in Sumnerville Cemetery

I wanted more information on people buried in Sumnerville, Cass Co. and googled the cemetery link above. There is an older list of people, some of which had not been entered into Find a Grave yet. I've been trying to add plot numbers so you can see who is next to each other, and that helps identify family members. Some additional headstones are also on that list and I've been finding a lot of errors in transcriptions with typos as I've been going through each name and comparing what is on the headstone to what is on the Find A Grave page. I'm glad I was able to be helpful to you. Thanks for your contact.

RE: Kirk Photos

You're welcome for the photos. It was a bit tough finding the markers in the snow. Some areas are bare of snow but other areas have up to a foot of snow.
I didn't find Irving, I will look again, once the snow melts.
I did find a couple of other Kirks at the same location though. May H Kirk 1868-1899, and Myron B Kirk 1844-1913, and then on Grandmother Kirk's was Floyd E Kirk (1871-1872). If you want to add the memorials, I will add the photos.

Oh thank you for the nice comments and thank you for the edits. It also made me realize that I could even add the year of her death too. 1883. Yes, it was a sad death and I am glad I was able to add the obituary. Worth its weight in gold. If something is wrong, it will be corrected by someone else later on as others find it. No issues with me on the edits you sent. Was glad to see them
