RE: Hardy Epperson Obit
Sorry. Somehow it got left out.
Castle Rock Journal, April 15, 1896

Here is the link to the direct site:

It states he died last Wednesday, which would have been April 7, if you want to add the date.

RE: I keep going back to that headston you have ...
Those ones came out nice. The sun must have been in the right spot. Some of the others I took were not so great, but always better than nothing. :)

RE: Found a family genealogy on Google Books
Ok, according to the family tree on ancestry, Isaac, Mary, and Hannah are siblings. If that's true, we need to find their parents, so we can link them. :) The family tree has the mother being buried in Oak Hill in Nyack, but I'm not seeing her on findagrave. I can check with the cemetery once we have some solid information and then I can get her added and linked.

RE: Found a family genealogy on Google Books
I knew you would figure this out! You're the best! There was a space in between Hannah and Isaac, so I'm guessing there used to be a stone there (probably John Coe) and then Mary Johnson was next to Isaac. She might be Isaac's wife? Mary's was a photo request, so the person who requested might know.

Have a great weekend,

RE: Those headstones are truly looking wonderful wonderful wonderful!
We've had some beautiful days this week. Nothing I enjoy better on a nice day than walking through an old cemetery. Ha!

Brick Church Cemetery
I am soooo happy that you added so many memorials to Brick Church Cemetery in Spring Valley. I was there taking photos and so many of the stones are worn and hard to read, but in many cases, I was able to see just enough to match them up to memorials you had already entered. Teamwork! Also, some of the stones had differing dates/spellings than what you have. I'm going to submit corrections for them and you can decide which should stay. Whatever you think!

Thanks for all you do!

I see you created a memorial for Nancy and linked Nate. That is good.

Can you also link her to her husband AS?

Thanks! :)

RE: Cheery Hello
Cheery hello to you, too!! :)

Dang! Good sleuthing! :) Good job!

I notice that Nat's middle name is Collier. And the maiden name you found for his mother is spelled Colyar.

I wonder which one is the correct spelling.

Spring is here but tell that to mother nature. she wants to have 70 degree days and then give us snow. oh well it will get warm soon enough and ill be out there again.

Added by Andy B on Apr 06, 2016 10:18 AM

Thank you!
Thank you so so much for your kind words! I was not having the best of days, but what you sent me just lifted me up. I truly needed that! I love findagrave and putting whatever information I can out there for people. Unfortunately, the monuments in cemeteries don't last forever, so it's up to us to preserve whatever we can for future generations. I always think of when I was starting out in genealogy and didn't have memberships or know about the free sites (this was some time ago) and just kept hoping that doing internet searches on my ancestors' names would yield SOMETHING. I hope that the information I put on findagrave does just that for people. With the obituaries, unfortunately, I lost the files where I was keeping track of what searches I did and how far I got through the results, so it got left unfinished. I'll pick it back up again though when I have some time to get myself organized again. I love doing this work!! Wish I could devote even more time to it!

RE: Hi there...
Hi there....

I received your request for an obituary for Albert C. Bogert. I'm happy to report that I found an obituary for Mr. Bogert in the Paterson (NJ) Daily Guardian dated June 28th, 1882. His obituary and death notice state that he was buried at the Sandy Hill Cemetery in Paterson. Unfortunately, Sandy Hill Cemetery is no more, and all the bodies were removed to other area cemeteries in Passaic and Bergen County, New Jersey prior to the cemetery's official condemnation in 1917.

I would be very glad to send along Mr. Bogert's obituary to you but need your e-mail address.
You can contact me at if you prefer to send your e-mail address.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Ann Blauvelt Memorial# 117389306
Hi "Cheery,"
If Ann is in Oak Hill, she would have been reinterred with her husband who died many years later. I do not see her name anywhere on that stone, with his name spelled Garrit. I hope everyone can get them where they belong!
Many thanks,

Isabella F. Blauvelt
Hello :)
I received your edit request to link Isabella (129565100) to Erastus Blauvelt (1857-1942)(110092202). Even though they are buried in the same cemetery, I am not sure if this is the right Erastus.
This Erastus was married to Sarah Ward.
There is a NY Marriage index for Isabella Marshall and an Erastus Blauvelt (married 31 Dec 1885) but there is no DOB listed so I can't determine if this is:
1) First spouse of Erastus (born NY 1857)
2) Additional spouse of Erastus (born Orange Cnty 1823-1901 - married to Ellen Jones)
3) First spouse of Erastus (born Paterson, NJ 1867-1918 (who was an attny in NY)- he would have been 17 when married to Isabella but WAS married to Ann Rust in 1906 - probably not this one).

As all of the Erastus' are in my tree, I don't have anything w/Isabella's name other than what is mentioned above.
Do you have any leads? I appreciate any information you may have :)

Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. Yes, my grandfather's mother was Ethel Janette "Effie" Cooper. I have a lot of information on her. I've contacted the person who created her memorial. Thank you again! :-)

Eckerson Transfer?
Hello! I found that you have my grandparents, George and Rose Eckerson of Spring Valley, NY. Would you be interested in transferring them to me? I seem to have become the family genealogist. :-)
