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.

Thomas Barrow
I have been searching high and low to try to find out why John McComb (1763-1853, famous New York Architect) refers to Thomas Barrow as "MY BELOVED UNCLE". They were both involved in Trinity Church but i cannot find the family tie, and It's driving me nuts. Also, the relationship of the same John McComb to William Pers "my greatly esteemed uncle" who died of yellow fever in 1798. Were these men somehow related to his mother, Mary Davis? I can't find out ANYTHING about her. Any leads would be sincerely appreciated.

Transfer of Memorial #41642565, William McClellan
Hi Dan - I would love to have William McClellan transferred to me. He is my 5x great grandfather and my patriot in the DAR. I am descended from his son, Col. John McClellan, and have done a lot of research on the family. Thank you for creating the memorial! Fran Quarles

You are so kind to transfer this memorial to me! Maybe I'll achieve a little sanity this fall by luring my husband away from that time wasting Fantasy Football!!

Capt. Peregrine White, Sr.
You took a photo of a news article for the death of Capt. Peregrine White, Sr. He died in 1704. He lived in Marshfield, Plymouth, Mass. He was born on the Mayflower. Anyway, would it be acceptable to you if I could gain a copy of this article from you??? I would really appreciate having it for my files as I build one branch of my family tree. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks for your time. and my name is Heather

RE: William Irvine tombstone
I appreciate your allowing me to use your photos.

I assume that you think that there is no reason to pursue trying to get a better photo of the inscription.

Thank you so much.

William Irvine tombstone
Dear Dan,

Thank you for posting the photo of William Irvine's stone at Gloria Dei in Philadelphia. Gen. Irvine is my 5x great grandfather. I am putting together a book of Irvine family pictures for my family for Christmas. First, I would like to ask permission to use the photos that you posted in my book.

Secondly, can you tell me if there is any legible inscription on the obelisk or the flat stone in front of it?

I have a copy of what was supposedly the original inscription from his stone at the Presbyterian Church in Phialdelphia, but do not know if the same marker was used when his grave was moved from there to Ronaldson's cemetery and then to Gloira Dei.

Any help that you could give would be most appreciated. I have had no luck in contacting Gloria Dei. They do not respond to emails or letters.

Ephraim Seeley

I have been notified that your entry is a duplicate of an entry I made 2 years prior. Also note, that I personally visited & photographed Ephrian Seeley's grave site in Old Presbyterian Church Cemetery, a couple miles north of Old Stone Church Cemetery, indicating your entry is not in the correct cemetery and should be deleted.
