Bio and Links
A short walk through Trinity Churchyard in 2004 got me interested in older cemeteries. A few years later, I found it difficult to research my family geneology. I started adding names here to maybe help others with their research. I'm also a big Revolutionary War buff and I have been searching for graves of anyone who somehow participated in the Revolutionary War.

RE: Biographical information
Dan:
Thanks for adding the edits and biographical information. I see that you have a special interest in the graves of veterans of the Revolution. Since there is no existing marker for David Baker I have sent an e-mail to the organization which is the Friends of the Battle of Brandywine requesting that they take a photo of the Brandywine Battlefield historical marker and send it to me so I can post it on David Baker's memorial page. I do not want to copy an existing photo of this marker which appears on the internet as this would violate the rules of findagrave.com. For a number of years I did Revolutionary War reenacting and was a member of the Royal Welch Fusiliers reenactment group. I am a bit old for that kind of activity now but I still maintain a strong interest in Revolutionary War history. Many thanks, Eric Baker

Biographical information
Hello: I have sent to your e-mail account some biographical information regarding David Baker who died in Morristown in 1835. I have also sent some other edits.
On another note I have enjoyed reading your biographical information of famous persons such as Richard Somers.

Many thanks,

Hezekiah Lore
Everything I've seen on Hezekiah Lore says he was born in Southold, Long Island in 1697. Could you tell me where you got the information that he was born in Holbrook? Any assistance you could give me would be appreciated.

Lewis Blachy d 1777 in Hilltop Cemetery NJ
I couldn't find the stone and I've photographed all stones in the cemetery. In the 1926 Cemetery directory it listed him as Lewis Blachley d 1777 and he should be next to Daniel Blachley d 1788. There are many missing or unreadable stones in this part of the cemetery.

WILLIAM P. SANDFORD
Added a picture to his memorial page. I took it August 27, 1989. Who knew walking through old cemeteries and taking pictures would come in handy 25 years later! Using an online birth/death/age calculator, puts his birth date at about October 10, 1761. Here is the link if you ever find the need for one.
