Please check his memorial - I added your note to bio... let me know if that is ok. I am good friends with a gal who takes photos of the headstones there and other look ups... let me know if you would like me to contact her for your photos - she does a splendid job.
I will need a list of who you want, she will post them to Find A Grave and we can also mail them to you.

Let me know when you have it sorted out. You really need to read the letter from sally to her long lost son, my GG Grand father Hiram Harlow Johnson.

RE: Rachel (Sayer) Hicks
Thank you for the lovely note. It is these notes that come once in a blue moon that make you glad you have helped someone find their family. Those long hours of not being able to sleep to complete some database entries as the family sleeps makes it all worth while.
Best of luck on your future searches.

I see that Sandy is the person that created His memorial in the Somerset cemetery. Perhaps she may have some resources to locate Sarah.
I have sent you 2 emails. Are they getting there? John,

Benjamin Scott / Woodmere, Detroit, MI
I found a headstone that fell face down next to Clarissa Scott. My guess is this could be Benjamin Scott. Otherwise I did not see a headstone for Benjamin.

RE: Stahls in Mountain Ridge!
Hi Kathy,

We're doing well, how about you and your family?

I would be delighted. My mother's side includes the Buckners and Woods on her Father's side, and the Stahls and Werths on her Mother's side. All in Niagara Orleans.

I have a pretty large tree going, over 44 thousand, most with quite a bit of documentation. If I have used Find A Grave to locate the burial site I try to remember to send the edits if I have more information, but don't usually ask for a transfer because I've had less than favorable responses in some cases. So, I'm always willing, but usually don't ask anymore. I like to try and make sure the family links are done. It's very helpful for people researching their families.

It's funny, my Mother was just asking if I had heard from you lately. She will always be grateful for your help in finding her baby Brother's grave at Greenwood.

Best Wishes always,

Yes you may transfer these items to me. Thomas was my gr-grandmother Charlotte Reynolds Watson's brother.

RE: Abigail - a big opps!
If I remember correctly, Mr. Jacobus compiled the Waterman genealogy, He was a very prominent genealogist and his work is very well respected. The Losey/Losee family were early settlers on Long Island, New York. You would think with all of the technology available today that something would be found to identify her parents.

Sarah "Sally" Bowman
She lived in Somerset. In 1880 she was 78 and in
poor health. Her second husband, Fredrick is buried
in the Somerset Cemetery. John

RE: Godfrey and Gladys Gnage
I located Gladys Irene McClellan-Gnage's obituary on and it states 29 Jan 1893. There is no other sourcing.

Godfrey and Gladys Gnage are "in-laws" to a family branch (FITCH-WRIGHT-PATTERSON-LESTER)that I am working on - LESTER - no need to transfer. I try to justify the family by identifying parents of someone who does marry into the greater Lester family.

Thank you,

It's absolutely plausible that someone sent the correction changing her name from Eliza to Elizabeth. Since the memorial was made so long ago, I can't be certain anymore, but what I originally uploaded would have matched verbatim what was in the transcription files for the cemetery. As her stone says E Eliza, I would have more than likely uploaded her as E Eliza.

RE: Berner Edits
Hi Kathy,
I am not related directly, but my Great-Aunt who passed in January 2016 married a Berner. I updated the memorials for her children so that they could trace their paternal line on

I would be happy to take the transfers if you would like for the memorials that I requested edits.

Kind Regards,

Karen Byrne

Moses and Edward Taggart
Kathy, Thanks for the information on the Taggart brothers. I see they were linked to the wrong parents. I have corrected that and they are now listed as sons of Rufus and Eliza.

Thank you for posting the photographs. Do you have access to the cemetery records, giving burial dates for Rufus and Samuel and their wives?

I want to thank you for the transfers. I certainly will maintain them and edit the information as I gather more details.

RE: Fred and Loraine Humphrey
I am related, but kind of shirt tail. Without looking I would guess first or second cousin 3 or 4 times removed. Still looking for my 3GG grandmother. She was married to a Bowman.
Their daughter married a Humphrey.

RE: Joshua Wilde
That's a darn good question. It is calculated, but I didn't do it. I always wondered why many of the old tombstones didn't put down dates, but rather years, months, and dates. Sometime during the 1750's the British changed over their calendars from the Gregorian to the Julian. Since we were under British rule then, we changed too. I think it made for about an 11-day difference. Plus, there are leap years involved. Try and do all that in your head. Well, I found a website that does tombstone calculations. And that's how I've come up with the dates. They're probably correct, but that's assuming the information on the stone is correct. If they're not, they're pretty close. Since I, myself, don't have any concrete information as to the date, I'd say adding the note is a good idea.

Thanks for asking. I wish there were a place to make a note about this when I send in the dates, but there isn't.

RE: Harvey and Emma Thompson
Hi Kathy!

You're welcome and no problem. I definitely don't think it was a wild goose chase. I enjoy the hunt when I have a place to start! If you need anything else just let me know and it's been great working with you!
