Bio and Links
Bio Photo Greetings!

A Find-a-Graver since the site's origins as the hit for notable graves--not genealogy--I do "Famous" bios, and photograph/write about old gravestones, cemeteries, and the people interred within for the general reader. Will cheerfully answer queries, make corrections, add data to the "Family Links" section, and include other relevant info ASAP. Please no requests to insert multiple hyperlinks in the narrative part of the bio or to transfer pre-1900 burials. Find-a-Grave members can always include any grave listed on the website in an ancestral or other type of grouping by using the "Virtual Cemetery" feature. If you wish to quote me or use my photos, please contact me; attribution for written pieces is "by Nikita Barlow, for Findagrave", and for photographs, "Photo by Nikita Barlow". Thanks for your cooperation, and happy graving!

RE: Findagrave Rules re: Names, Duplicate entries
Ok, then I kindly request you transfer her to me, as she is my direct descendant, my 5th great aunt. I also see that this a policy on this site, and I have many more genealogy info to add to her from my family sources. Thanks.

Cundits in history: from CUNDITT to Cundit, to Cundict, to Condict & Condit families
Here's a good theory and guess--based upon historical documents & materials, (including genealogy books and other references), that Samuel CUNDIT (memorial # 6624201, merged here with Mary DODD), from Peter Cundit/Cunditt, from John Cunditt, the ancestor to America, (of the first line to America, from Wales,from England, and it is believed from Normandy France), had the wrong name engraved on his headstone, & that his name was NOT "Conduit" as found on Samuel's headstone.
Is his wife's headstone proof? The dates for Cundits are the same in other historical data.The two headstones seem to be of the same family, attended the same church, buried in the same place.

Mary Dodd's headstone's last name etched as CUNDIT twice, (once for her and once for her husband Samuel), has the same historical dates noted in other sources. Coincidence? Doubtful.

Cunditt & Cundit are noted in history as such, so it is highly likely the name CUNDIT was not a headstone typo, but that Conduit was. Where are the other Conduits here, or in First Presbyterian Church records with the same important dates?
John Cunditt's will names his son,Peter, and eight grandchildren (Samuel,Peter, etc.) as CUNDIT, even though they were named as CONDICT on John's headstone. Look at the 1885 & 1916 genealogy books.

CUNDITT AND CUNDIT names later evolved/were adopted by many of the Condict & Condit families in America today; possibly others with spelling variations belong to this family lineage(Conditt? others?). Samuel and Mary were my 6th great grand uncle and aunt in the lines from Cunditt, Cundit, Cundict & Condict & Condit.

History and headstones...preserving the names that connect us today!

RE: Jemima Condict Harrison #6819459
Thanks, but I was not inquiring about copyrighting facts. I was referring to not accrediting someone else's work --as in reporting info, sources, etc.. Thanks,
Cheers,

Cundit ancestors
Please look at his wife's headstone, where you will likely find the correct last name of CUNDIT as history shows/tells. Thanks.

Re: Achsah Freeman
Hello! You own the memorial page for Achsah Freeman, who I have discovered is my 6x Great Aunt! I discovered that she was born November 18, 1773. I thought you might want to add that to her memorial.

Her parents are Amos Freeman and Mary Crane.

Thanks!!

Nikita:
I would like the attribution (with my name) for the source materials (New Jersey Historical Society, etc.) given you on Jemima Condict, and on other pending edits on my ancestors: Cundits and Condicts.
Genealogy research is just as important as a photo, yet I see nothing on FindA Grave on this for contributors to add their names for sourcing the materials that accompany the gravestone info and photos.
Thanks for adding the info. Could you please forward this to the folks at FindAGrave or is that Ancestry.com? I am also there too. As a registered user who has contributed, I still see the site says I have made no contributions.

Cheers, Helen Condict Case
