Genealogy question

This is a question about genealogy of the Apgar family. I appreciate that you do not know me, and that you are probably quite busy. I would appreciate, however, any thoughts you may have about the following information, when you have time to spend on the query.

My name is Dave Apgar. While I currently live in Tucson, AZ, I was born in Plainfield, NJ in 1945. My father was Allen Wood apgar and my mother was Dorothy Brennan Apgar. My father's mother was Julia Burke Apgar. You are listed as the source of a photo of a gravestone in Hillside Cemetery for Julia B. [Scofield] Apgar on the Find A Grave web site. I found this through The date of death matches the date of death of my paternal grandmother. However, some of the other information is new to me. For example, I am unaware of the name Scofield in her lineage. Also, the information on her husband, William F Apgar is a bit different than what I get from other sources. The link from Julia's page in Find A Grave goes to a site for William F Apgar. Here, his parents are listed as Isaac Fisher Apgar and Elizabeth Sutton Apgar. Information from the Apgar Family Association indicates that William's parents were Isaiah Smith Apgar and Salome Angeline Pease. In fact, my brother has a photostat of their marriage certificate.

My real question has to do with my grandmother's brother and his family. When my brother and I were children, we vacationed for a few years at Lake Mohawk, NJ. During a few summer seasons in the 1950s we were visited by two cousins, Muriel and Beverly, at that vacation home. At that time they were older than both me and my brother. This means that, if they are still living, they are probably in their late 70s. I understood that my paternal grandmother (Julia) had a brother named Harry Burke. I think that Muriel and Beverly were offspring of Harry Burke. They were probably granddaughters of Harry Burke. Unfortunately, all I can remember is that at the time (in the 1950s) they lived somewhere on Long Island. I can find nothing more about them. Perhaps that is partly because I'm really not sure what their last names were then, and especially now, if they married and are still living.

Any hints or thoughts you have about Muriel and Beverly (? Burke ?) and their lineage, would be very much appreciated.

I have a suspicion that this grave you added may belong to Ambrose Fitz-Randolph (1861-1934). I was wondering if you'd be able to take a photo request?

Cornelius Walter Tunison, Jr.
You have a photo of a grave for Cornelius Walter Tunison, Jr. which is incorrect. The marker is for his father, Cornelius Walter Tunison, Sr. and he is buried next to his wife Maria Walker Tunison who has a larger stone next to his.

Cornelius Jr., is buried next to his third wife, Elizabeth Whittaker Hearst Tunison.

Gertrude M. Coleman
Wayne Apgar,
Do you have much information about the Gertrude's gravestone? I found a Social Security record that indicates she died in 1983, so I was surprised to see a gravestone that said 1985. Any information you can share with me will be most appreciated.

Winthrop E. Dwight # 54736624
Hi Wayne,

You have 5 wonderful photos of Winthrop's grave site. I was wondering if you could please maybe remove just one of them so that I could post a photo of Winthrop himself. Would that be possible?
Thank you for your consideration.

Warm regards,

George Sutton
Thanks for changing the name on this memorial. I am still skeptical of the parents you have listed. What leads you to believe they came from that area of England ?
I think Robert and Mary Sutton of Biddenden, Kent Co., were George's parents. Biddenden is very close to Tenterden, where we know George resided as a young man. This is listed on the ship's manifest for the Hercules of Sandwich in March of 1634/1635.
This fall, I stood at the baptismal font at All Saint's in Biddenden where a George Sutton, son of Robert was christened in Dec 1606. About a year earlier a Robert Sutton and Mary Austen were married at All Saint's.
Please let me know where your information comes from. Thank you.
