Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family research started in 1980. I enjoy helping others in their family research.

In August 2007, I founded the Angel Babies Memorial Project. The mission of this project is to discover and record the gravesites of infants and children who died in New York City and other states between 1798 - 1948 and link them genealogically to their families.
Every memorial serves as a tribute to a youngster who died much too soon. They all deserve to be remembered and honored, and given a sense of dignity and love in death that may have been denied to them in life. By doing so, they will not be forgotten.

Staten Island Farm Colony
My great grand uncle Thomas McCullough was admitted to the Farm Colony in 1916.
I noticed that the description of the cemetery indicates that the last burial was about 1905.
I have the feeling that Thomas never made it out of The Colony. I am guessing that he died about 1917. He is not in the 1920 census. There is a Thomas McCullough who died in Richmond County in 1917, but the age is at least 6 years off.
From what you know, could there have been
burials after 1905 ?
Are there any records available that you think could help me ?
I would appreciate your help.
Hope to hear from you soon.

Kitty and William Herrick
I did not add Kitty to be the child of William Herrick. Since I don't own her memorial I can't add parents to her memorial. It looks like the New York Historian must have done so since he/she owned Kitty's memorial. Sorry I couldn't help.

Francis Paul and Emma Gillespie
I am currently visiting Yonkers, NY and I will be here until the end of the first week of Mar. I am taking two online courses. I asked my brother to call several cemeteries, to find out burial locations. When he talked to the lady who works in the office of St John's cemetery, she told him that she had no record for Francis and Emma Gillespie. Are you sure that this is the correct cemetery?

Charles Breese
Thanks for the parental info for Charles H. Breese in New Somerville Cemetery. I think the maiden name for his mother is "DILTS", not Diets, and if that is the case, then I found them and linked them! The dates are right....

RE: Warren Evans
Her name wasn't on the back of his marker, as they usually are.

Windsor Hotel Fire
Although not a victim, you might want to include Deputy Chief William Clark (Find A Grave Memorial #122985595) in your VC.

I was able to re-take Alexander Baird's marker photo, I am working on putting the names around his plot in the caption of the photo of Wall 4.
