My family research started in 1980.
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.

That's not very professional, because if you don't know his exact birth date, you have no way of knowing how old he was at the time of his death. His birth date on his death record is even an "estimate". Also, "in memory of", sometimes indicates that he isn't buried there, just a headstone placement for him (considering it still says James "Ryder"). But, that's just my take on it.

"In memory of James Ryder
Age: 57 years old"
Is that a transcription on his headstone?

I'm also looking at his death record and I don't see where it says he was born in Manhattan
New York County (Manhattan)
New York, USA
He lived in Orange County at the time of his birth up until 1860, when he moved to NYC.

OK, I see you changed on his profile date to 1836. You had 1831. All of his census records have Rider, that's why I inquired.

Thanks so much for the transfer of Margareta Schmidt.
|Roibeard||RE: Gee Family Plot|
You're very welcome. I'm glad you liked the shot of the plot too. I usually do that to give some perspective to the headstone shots. I like to have people feel like they were actually there at the grave site and that this is what they would see if they were there.
