Hello Carole,
I just processed your request for Cornelius Blacklidge. Not sure if you noticed but in one of the pictures in Cornelius's memorial that I posted, there is a stone next to Cornelius with the name Cornelius Lefferts. As you can probably tell the stone was down and I up righted it but did not have anything with me to clean the stone. Since I couldn't read the dates from the picture, I never created a memorial. The next time I go back to Dale Cemetery I will brush remaining dirt off and get a better picture and create a memorial. Maybe this is one of Cornelius's grandsons. Just thought you might want to know.

Baptismal records
Hi Carole,

Wow, this is so wonderful! I can't find the words to tell you how much this means to me. My email is ginnyg at together dot net. I'm looking forward to going through them!

Hugs, Ginny

RE: Just called the New City Public Library
Wow, Carole! Thank you so much for looking into William's background for me!!! For a long time I have thought that either Garret or Abraham Garretson was probably his father, but I haven't been able to find any connection. It would be so AWESOME to be able to bridge that gap! I did find that Garret and Peggy (Margaret) Garrison sold land to William Garrison in 1843 (which could be purely coincidence). I would be so grateful for any information you uncover! Hugs back to you - Ginny

RE: Why thank you!
Sarah Blacklidge is my first cousin, six times removed (this particular Sarah). Her father was my sixth great-uncle and HIS father (Sarah's grandfather) was my sixth great-grandfather....I would have to look at my tree, but her Bogert children would also be my cousins.

My second great-grandmother was Charlotte Blacklidge, who married Madison Forkner. (I have four Charlotte Blackldges in my tree.) Charlotte and Madison (I don't have a burial location for him) were the parents of my great grandmother, Elizabeth Teresa aka "Lizzie" Forkner Porter. You can see her memorial if you go to my Profile and enter Elizabeth Porter. Her husband, my great-grandfather, was Samuel Jenkins Porter. Their daughter, Elizabeth Porter Ward was my maternal grandmother.

Tell me how you might be related to me....

William Garrison obituary?
Wow, it's great working with you! Do you have an obituary for William Garrison (died in New City, NY in 1877)? I haven't been able to find one. He is a very stubborn brick wall - he's supposedly from a "well-known Rockland County family" but I can't figure out which one, as I have found no reference for him earlier than his marriage to Barbara Blauvelt. Sigh, genealogy can be very exciting and very frustrating at the same time!

Garrison+ Blauvelt obituaries
Hi again!
Your information from Wallace Garrison's obituary inspired me to dig out the obituaries I have and put them online. I've added Wallace's obituary and also one for Barbara Blauvelt. Thank you!

M. Raymond Garrison obituary
Thank you for posting the obituary for M. Raymond Garrison! He's my grandfather. I have an obituary from a different paper, and hadn't seen that one before. Have a nice day!

How are we related?
Hi again, Carole! You mentioned that we are related via Barbara Blauvelt. How are we related? I descend from her son Wallace. Her husband William has been my brick wall for over 20 years, and I have never connected with any of Howard's descendants either. I'd love to "meet" cousins this line!

Thank you!
Thank you so much for the transfer of Barbara Blauvelt, Carole. I merged the two entries and included all of your bio information in it. I requested an edit of Howard Garrison's birth year - her son (he was in the 1850 census, so his death certificate was incorrect about his being 51 y.o.). I also requested changing the link in Howard Garrison's memorial to link to his mother at the "new" merged Barbara Blauvelt memorial.

Transfer # 152560597?
Hi Carole,
Would you be willing to transfer Barbara Blauvelt Garrison's memorial # 152560597 to me? It is actually a second entry for her, as her grave was entered in 2011 (without birth and death dates) and I manage the first entry. She is my great-great-grandmother. Are you by chance related to her as well? Thank you! Ginny Garrison

Hi Carole,
thanks for sending all the suggested edits on the Simington families. I have approved all of them and will be letting the family know about them being added. So you know for sure J. Simington is the John Simington who is the father of Texas? Texas was her grandfather. They will be pleased to know.
Really appreciate you adding the information to the memorials.

J. Simington
Hi Carole, you sent a request asking to take over his Memorial# 7442517. I took it over from the individual who created the memorial for a friend who is a direct descendant of him, if he is the Simington who was married to Frances Morris. If he is, I am sorry but I plan to release it to his great granddaughter's son as soon as they can document it is him. He is the one doing the research, but is just getting started so asked me to hold the memorial for him. If you send me another request with your email address, I can explain further.

I was perusing through the old Columbia Herald when I came across this notice:


The remains of Robert Ray Hamilton were taken from his Wyoming ranch and interred in Greenwood Cemetery.

The Columbia Herald 29 Jul 1892.


Naturally, I thought it meant the Greenwood Cemetery here in town, and I guess the guy who OKed the note in the paper did too. So now I have to delete another page of mine. But I thought you'd be interested in this tidbit of info to add to your page.

Anna Burchards
How nice to meet family! What's your connection to her?

My father (Anna's great-grandson) spent much of his childhood on the Burchards farm in Vermont, but he doesn't remember Anna since he was young when she died.

In her daughter-in-law's diary (which I have; my dad's grandmother), she refers to the family as the Schaefers, which is also how it appears on Census records. It's Schaffer on the death record, though. I suspect my great-grandmother Edith, the informant, didn't spell it for the doctor.

Adelaide Allaire
Is anyone directly related to Adelaide Allaire? She is my third great grandmother but it appear that she is my Half third great grandmother! The reason I ask is that I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints and I would love to take her to the temple to get her Baptism and Confirmation done! Please email me at with either no or yes!

Aeltje Snedeker Storms
where is the source for her:"testified 13 Nov. 1838 that she married Abraham Storms.....the wedding was delayed...because of my brother's John Snedeker illness and death....

I have for other reasons checked the Revolutionary War pension files for Abraha and Aletta Storms and have found not such statements??
The date was 20 Nov. 1838 for her application statement.

RE: One of my great grandfathers...was
Hello Carole
If you need any looks up please just let me know.I lookup records and go round the graveyards. We all have down time in our own researches and for me its a positive way of using some of that time. Sort of giving back to the Genealogical world.

Was it Wedmore itself your G G Fathers were from? You will know how Des Res it is now - I bet your Great Grandfather's would laugh to see its one of the most sought after villages in Somerset. Needless to say I do not live in Wedmore but within the region of.

So if I can help please do not hesitate in asking

kindest wishes
