Bio Photo Some changes sent to me to update memorials that went to my Spam mailbox, were accidentally deleted. Please resend me your requests if I haven't gotten back to you.

I authorize anyone to use my Find a Grave images in Wikipedia or their own family research, under the creative commons attribution license cc-by-2.5, where the attribution is 'R.E.H.'."

Going forward, unless there is a compelling reason, I will only transfer listings of people someone knew closely, i.e. parent, child or close friend. I'm sorry, but someone who died 200 years ago could be related to thousands of people. I prefer you add one of my listings under your umbrella using the virtual cemetery feature at Find A Grave. If you have additional information, I will happily add it and list you as the contributor.

Also, please do not ask me add an obituary to a person's memorial. See Find A Grave policy below:

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
It is best to not copy obituary notices from newspapers to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so. In general, obituaries in newspapers are submitted by the family. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, it should list the newspaper and date the obit was printed. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices from memorial records.
Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave.
Please do not include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed.

Rich, Thank you very much for the transfer.
Grace's son, Charles, is celebrating his
80th birthday in June 2016.
I have a lovely family book put together
for his birthday. Now that I have found
his mother, I can connect all the siblings.
Others on Ancestry tried to help me find
his mother, but nothing turned up until
today, I found her myself. Great news!

Sgt Gideon R Hewitt
While researching my own family genealogy, In 1850, found Gideon and his parents living next door to my 3rd great grandfather in Somerset, Niagara, NY. I ffound in 1860 his aunt with the same maiden surname as my 3rd great grandmother was living in Peru, Clinton, NY with his parents next door to Gideon and his wife. My theory is they are related somehow. I was curious why findagrave showed his burial in NJ. With additional research, I see Gideon's maternal grandfather was Joel Vail, who was born in Randolph, Morris, NJ.

In this link you can find Gideon's service

Kind regards, Karen Byrne

Rich thanks for the transfers and much appreciation for all the work you have dine to connect family members.
Providence, NY apparently was late in the recording of data and back in the day covered different areas than today. So hoping to find daughter Jane's cemetery and like most sometime it takes awhile for it to appear.

Re; James Murphy
Hi Rich
I put in a request last year for a photo of a relative that we had only found out that died in 1917 in New Jersey, I'm wondering did you receive it? The details are...
James Murphy, born 1893, died Oct 1917,
Holy Cross Cemetery, Hudson County,
New Jersey, Plot E F 166
