RE: Obituary needed.
Hi, I will do a quick search and see if I can find Marion Ghee's obit. If you noticed the date of death listed on his Find A Grave page is the same date as his wife's. I'm thinking his is incorrect. I will let you know what I find.

RE: Lothrop Hill Cemetery ALLEN/ALLIN/ALLYNs
Hi seekerjay,
I use for my research. Of course seeing the stones for the family all in a row in the cemetery is an added bonus. Thanks for all you do for Findagrave. Have a great day!

Would you mind letting me know why you declined the edit to list the position of the monument at Gettysburg? Thanks, ever so much!

How can I send for a burial permit from my relative who is buried in Hart Island Pauper Cemetery? I really would like to have one. Thanks.

RE: Patton Family Burial Grounds
Thank you for the information about the Patton Family Burial Grounds. My g grandmother Jennie & my gg grandparents Cyrus & Sarah K may be in there.
I haven't been able to find them anyplace else in the Newburgh, New Windsor area.
In case people don't tell you often enough, thanks for all that you do to help families locate their loved ones.

Wilson Hunt
"Is this the 28 year old Wilson Hunter who dies at sea Feb 1859 whose body was taken to Hong Kong? Would he happen to be reinterred here (he was from Brooklyn). I know this is a long shot."

I dug around a little more, so to speak, and there are no "Hunter" burials in that plot, only "Hunt" burials. I can some typo ending up on record, but not that many.

Also in this plot:







Also, the Mausoleum's photo clearly shows HUNT, and the graves in front are Hunt relations.

Maybe your guy was really a Hunt not a Hunter? For any more details, all I can suggest is contacting Green-wood itself.

I hope this is helpful... ~S

Wilson J. Hunt
I would say there is a good chance that Green-Wood Cemetery is a reburial and that it is him. I found him in the 1850 New York Census with parents Thomas and Emelline Hunt, in Brooklyn. There is an Emeline buried there in 1873. I did not find him in Consul General records, but I did find him on the crew list on the "Amaranth" docking in port at Sydney on Sept. 4, 1858. I also found a note in a column on Sydney in the Melbourne "Argus" dated Jan. 6, 1859, "Thirty Chinamen, who have taken their passages by the Amaranth to Hong Kong, have paid duty on nearly 2,000 ounces of gold. - Adelaide, Wednesday." It left on Jan. 13th with 67 Chinese in steerage under Capt. Jones, bound for Hong Kong. I'm thinking that that is the trip that he died on. Since the Amaranth was a freighter based out of New York, the family could have easily arranged for his body to be brought back. If you want to pursue this further, I would suggest the burial detail file on Wilson Hunt at Green-Wood. -Rebecca
