I do not believe that you sent me links to her parents. Please send them and I will add them. Also, if you have a nicer format or design for the obit please send that as well and I'll take a look at it. Thank you for your help!

You did a better and more thorough job of research than they did on the TV program. Congratulations.

RE: Hello there Carolyn
Thank you very much for the updates. Did you notice that in 1940 all of Elizabeth and Jesse Uppercu's daughters - Jessie, Elizabeth Amelia, and Jean Irene, were living with Elizabeth? I wonder where she was in 1930. Jean Irene married Emil Keller in 1946. They divorced in 1977. Emil passed in 2009 and Jean is apparently still living in Reva, Virginia. Thought you might like to know this. Thank you again for all you do.

RE: Hey Andy
Hi Carole, unfortunately i dont keep the photos i take with the exception of military stones. They take up room. So when i see that you or someone else has photos installed on the site... i delete them. I will check though. As far as a company to inscribe grave stones i know of none other than looking in a phone book... sorry.

That is great you are also working on the Harings! Jane S. Haring is my 3rd great grand aunt. I have a picture of her with all her siblings who were still living in about 1900 (Ann, Bridget, Elizabeth and Jacob)--I think I sent a copy to Regina and she has it on the website. I can send you a high resolution scan of it if you don't have it--I found it at my Mom's house in a giant box of photos! I also have quite a few other pictures of Elizabeth (aka Mammmy) who lived until 1930 so my Gramma knew her very well. I didn't realize Jacob was somewhat famous for breeding racehorses until I found his obit. I have some of my pictures attached to my tree on if you have access.

RE: Hello my new good friend!
hi Carole, I grew up in this section of rockland county also worked in this same place and have always driven by brick church. Probably like most other people that do this kind of thing I wanted to know who my relatives were. One thing led to another and i found myself on find a grave looking for them. I found a few. But to make this a short story, I wanted to help others look for their relatives. I knew what a pain it is to search and not find anything. So some months ago I found myself here at brick church and decided that it was time to give back and help others. I talked to Paul and he said go for it and Ive been here when ever I get the time. I see you have done a lot of work here an i add what i can to it. photos etc.
How did you get started here???

Nettie Nickerson
Hello again,
Nettie is my first cousin 3x removed. :-)
Nettie married John Blauvelt on 21 Sep 1876 in Clarkstown Reformed Church.
You made a memorial for him #121122924.
They are in the 1880 census in Middletown, Rockland County as John and Nettie Blauvelt.

After his death she married Henry B. Burr on 18 Jul 1889 in Nyack. He was born in Feb 1853 in Connecticut.
They are in Orangetown for all the census records from 1892 to 1920.
1892 - Henry and Nettie
1900 - Henry B. and Janette S.
1905 - Henry B. and Nettie
1910 - Henry B. and Nettie
1915 - Henry and Nettie S.
1920 - Henry B. and Nettie S.

I have not found either of them in the 1930 or 1940 census records. Assume they died in the 1920's. Henry's younger sister, Caroline, lived the them and is in the 1940 census.

Nettie sold some land on 30 April 1920 in Rockland county. Since the 1920 census lists those persons alive on January 1st, it's possible Henry died between then and April and Nettie sold their home and moved in with someone else. She was the census enumerator and conducted the census for their family on March 5th.

Hope this helps. I don't live in NY so I don't have easy access to the libraries. I've searched newspapers that are free online for obituaries and have not found any yet.

Restvale duplicates
Thanks for pointing out my own duplicate entries (for Lewis P. French). Turns out I didn't just enter him twice, but 3 times! I'll be fixing that shortly. Not sure how that happened. I also noticed that pictures I am sure I added for him are not showing on any of the memorials I created. That has me scratching my head. Based on what you shared, I am wondering if Find-a-grave is having problems keeping search results and database postings up-to-date and accurate. I'd hate to think our efforts are sometimes getting lost.

I live about an hour away from Restvale, but drove over on Friday and spent about 7 hours shooting pix of about 500 gravestones. I was mainly searching for my family lines, but as I go through the sections I also take time to shoot other markers that I deem are either quite old, at risk, or that contain unusual genealogical information (and sometimes, just if the lighting is really good on a stone). It'll probably take me quite a while to get them all loaded. Some may already have been done, but it's too slow to check my F-A-G phone app in real time at each grave . It's so much easier to shoot the picture and then do the research back at home when I'm at the computer. Because only a small percentage of the graves in this cemetery are currently on the website, it's pretty good odds most of my pix are of unrecorded memorials.

I'll try really hard to make sure I don't duplicate any more existing memorials, but feel free to let me know if you see I've done it again.

Again, thanks for all your good work at Restvale. We still have a few thousand memorials yet to do! ;-)

RE: Hello there Cindy
Just send request transfers through each memorial. That way there is not likely to be an error in the numbers. I'd be happy to transfer.

Have a great day!

RE: Charles Johnson.
No, actually at the time I sent out the corrctions/additions, Charles and Alice were not my posts. They belonged to a friend in Teaneck, NJ who decided to transfer them to me. This transfer had taken place by the time you took a look. Thanks for removing your Charles from the Brick Church. The duplicates over in the True Reformed Church, I'm aware of but thanks for the reminder. I need to deal with them.

Sherwood Family
Hi - Thanks for your note. Amelia married into my extended family when she married George Nickerson. I haven't been doing any recent work on the family, so it's wonderful to see the newspaper article you posted. I have been trying to locate the details about her first daughter, Janette (Nettie). She was married twice and her name was probably Nettie Burr when she died. I think she probably lived in the Orangetown area and died after 1920. If you find anything on her I would love to know the details. She's the only child of Amelia's that I haven't been able to add to Find A Grave. :-)

Have fun with your research.

That would be fine! If she is your family please let me know and I'll gladly transfer and you can add it all yourself as she isn't my family. Ms Millard had transferred the memorial to me in response to me asking for a link or something instead of doing the update herself. Let me know!

RE: Hello there my new Find A Grave friend!
Rockland Cemetery used to have their listings on line which made things easy to go over there and take photos for requests. At some point earlier this year they took it down so I haven't been as keen to go over there. (I live in Pearl River).

I'd been going to Germonds on a semi-regular basis to fill photo requests but then I saw that Barb Walker started putting in the listings comprehensively starting this May so I decided to take on the task of photographing all the stones.
