Memorial # 46602971 - Clara Carpenter
Greetings. I am so happy to find the resting place of my great grand aunt! Since learning about my 3x great grandfather, I have been searching for his wife & daughters to reunite them on FindaGrave through memorial links. Clara's father, George W Stiles, was a Union Soldier in the Civil War, who served in the 7th NY Heavy Artillery Regiment, was captured and died in a confederate prison camp. He had a wife and four young daughters. His family suffered greatly after his death. Clara, the eldest had to work as a brush maker to support the family. The two middle children had to be sent away to live with relatives several hundred miles away. Eventually the youngest daughter was sent to live with one of her sisters once that sister married. Clara never left her mother. She eventually moved with her mother to live closer to her sisters. Clara married a man much her senior who had children from a prior marriage. Her mother lived with them in the same house. I manage the memorial for Clara's father buried at the Andersonville cemetery in Georgia. I am still searching for the resting places of the other family members. It would mean so much to me if this memorial could be transferred so I can keep them all together under my management. I thank you so much for this picture and for consideration of my request.

stephen pettit 73477418
Stephen Pettit is my greatgreatgreat grandfather and I found a marriage license that was singed by him and his wife Kate Mott for Walter J. Pettit who was married twice-and lived in New Jersey when he was married. So, I believe that the info is incorrect that he married Elixabeth Jane Hewlett but I cannot find any records of him marrying Kate Mott since my great uncle tells me she was a full blodded Shinnecock Indian. Any ideas would be helpful and also, I used to live a few blocks from that church way back in 1970!!!

I noticed her grave shows Phebe but your bio shows Phoebe. Do you know if that is correct? Diane

Hi Dyane,

Could you edit Howard Whitney's page (Find A Grave Memorial# 139732638) to include his birth year of 1897 and link him to his parents:
Henry Whitney: Find A Grave Memorial# 139732610 &
Frances Whitney: Find A Grave Memorial# 139732569

Thank you ever so much!

Isaac Luyster Memorial
Hello, Wanted to let you know that I added a photograph to the memorial you created for him. The photo is a copy of the Civil War Muster Roll for John Ahusoo, a native of China, who served in the 134th NY Volunteer Infantry in the Civil War, having been paid by Mr. Luyster to serve as his "substitute".

I do research on the 134th having had an ancestor who served in the unit.

Thanks for creating his memorial. Alas, I cannot find a trace of what became of Mr. Ahusoo after the war. Perhaps he returned to China and vanished into the mists of time.

Sarah Ann Hendrickson Nostrand
Somehow, even looking at her page, I keep getting back to this. But anyway....

She is buried at Old Springfield Cemetery, Springfield Gardens, Queen's Co., NY. And you have bio info for her as well as the headstone inscription. A photo would be hugely helpful though!

Thank you for posting so many records and pictures from the Old Springfield Cemetery!
Do you by chance have headstone picture for the lady listed above? If so, I sure would love to get a copy.

Albert Walsh
I was doing some updating on Ida May LePoidevin B: 21 Feb 1877 in New York, United States. She married Albert 27 Oct 1908. The 1920 US Census, enumerated as of 19 Jan 1920 still has them married with two children. In Albert's memorial, Memorial# 102646952, in Find A Grave you have him linked to a spouse of Margaret 'Schenck' Walsh (1870 - 1904). Do you know when they were married? Do you know if Ida May 'LePoidevin' Walsh is buried in this Flushing Cemetery? If so, I would love a pic of her headstone. The 2nd pic you have in Albert's memorial, the resolution is so small, I can't make out anything on the headstones. Can you please update me as to what it is of? I would greatly appreciate any help you may be able to give me. I had no record of Albert being married prior to 1908. Thank you in advance for your help, ~Bill

Elizabeth Skidmore 29Aug1816-24Jan1842
Hi Dyane,

Please check. I think that Elizabeth Skidmore #52531561 who died 24 Jan 1842 could not have been the daughter of the first wife (Hannah McCoun Skidmore 1780-1815) of Capt Hubbard Skidmore since Hannah died 13 Feb 1815 and Elizabeth was born 29 Aug 1816. She must have been the daughter of Hubbard Skidmore's second wife Caroline Skidmore #10341474 (b~1795 d 11 Dec 1837) who is buried in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery.
Please let me know what you think?
