Requas New York
I am researching Requas to find any in the New England area. Briefly, it's a line back to Isaac L Requa who made his fortune in the Southwest and settled in the San Fran/Oakland area, he died about 1904. His wife was Sarah Jane Mower, from the Mower family of Maine. Her brother George W Mower is who I am most interested in. If you have anything on Requas from the Tarrytown area, where Isaac's family was from, or Mowers mixed in, I would be appreciative! hmc

Check Memorial Cemetery, Nassau County, L. I. for various Requa relatives of mine. I noticed you had a Requa line. Mine were a cousin line of my grandmother's. Early in the 20th century the Requa Brothers ran a Coffee & Tea business in the Huntington-Cold Spring Harbor area of Long Island.

Wood & Ray at St. John's, Huntington
All I had was a Xerox of a inventory of the cemetery published in the New England HistGen ca. 1912 or so. I've transferred Maria Wood & her husband Dr. Joseph H. Ray and William Palmer Wood over to you. Please correct any mistakes and add additional information. I'm sure this will be of a help to people researching those lines.

RE: Three Cheers!
Thank you so much for all of your help. We are unsure of Maudie petite's true birth year. Looks to be a different year in every census.

Hi, You are very welcome. David T. Alter was the husband of my 2g-Aunt, Mary Ann "Polly" Westervelt. I had just updated David's Find A Grave five minutes I have been working on all of them for months and how they migrated from New Jersey, to Ohio and on to Indiana. My focus was on Polly's mother and father, Abraham Westervelt and Doritha Anima "Dolly" Shaw. So glad you appreciate my hard work.

Hello Family,

Thank you for adding the info and making the links. You need not give me any credit, though it was nice of you to do so.

I might mention that Henry's mother is in records by various name spellings, but I went with the marriage record for the first name, and that record and the most common spellings on the vast majority of records to determine her maiden name.

Sometimes her name was "Americanized" as Marie / Maria, but I am like 99.99 percent certain that was a mere simplification. I do not know if you want to mention these derivations or my source, but just mentioning this to you.

Thanks again,

RE: Can you send me the memorial numbers to me so that I can correct
Now I cannot remember who it was I was working with. It was probably the Ackerson line I am working on

Sherwood Family
My family are direct descendants of the Sherwood Family thru my mother. Her mother's maiden name was Sherwood. I came across your Find a Grave site when searching for Lt. Col. Isaac Sherwood and boy was I surprised at what you had listed. Thanks so much for posting this information!

RE: Ill have to hook up with you when I get up that way!
Sure! No problem! I'll go as long as someone is with me!! I'm a bit of a chicken alone!! LOL!! Most of the cemeteries around here are okay. Just that one & one other that I went to. I can't remember the name of the other one or how to get there!!! That's how scary it was!!

I never know why I feel that they are trying to get my attention! For the most part, I don't mind!! LOL! But, if I go back to Mt Pleasant, it will not be alone!! LOL!

RE: Thanks EVER so much buddy....for the transfers
My pleasure. My in-laws are buried in that cemetery as are my great-aunt, Stella Gilkey McCullough, and her family.

RE: Oh did give me a laugh to be sure!
I took it as them trying to get noticed!! Have you ever felt "drawn" to a certain headstone? Maybe I'm just crazy, but some times I think they WANT to get attention!! It's the location of that cemetery that makes it scary!! It is in the middle of nowhere! And no one around!!

I hope things work out for them! Nothing like new love!
So, you have never been to this cemetery? It is in the middle of no where, on the side of the road, next to nothing! The edges are covered in poison ivy!
It is the first cemetery that creeped me out!! You know that feeling that people are watching you?
I stayed for awhile, but when I got to the back & away from my car, I started hearing strange noises, so I felt! I never went back!! LOL!

Mt Pleasant cemetery
Thank you for your compliment. Please do send any corrections you find on them. Are you related? I will do transfers if you are. These are very old stones, & my goal was to record them before they break down anymore.
