Bio and Links
Bio Photo The surnames I am researching include Piper, Gordon, Case, Lowerre, Cordier, Baker, Hodge and Cuddeback, among many others. I am as interested in my collateral branches as I am in direct lineal ancestors. I have a deep connection to the early pioneers and settlers of Sullivan, Orange and Ulster counties of New York.

I will gladly make updates/corrections to any of the memorials I have added to Find A Grave and will transfer those that are not in my family tree. Just be patient as it may take me several weeks to respond. You can use the Edit and Transfer tabs or contact me via email.

The work I have done on this site, and hope to continue, is strictly a genealogical labor of love. When I am in a cemetery looking for my own family I am happy to take photos of other gravestones. Many of the entries I have made come from obituaries or news items that I come across in my research, and therefore may not have a photo attached. I strongly believe in adding such biographical data, even though it may not be accurate, because it sometimes provides that elusive clue, or even a place to start. In many cases I've added memorials but have not had time yet to transcribe the obituary. You are welcome to contact me to ask if I have an obit in my files.

RE: Ralen (Roland) Hummel
You are a sweetheart. I will appreciate it. Does the cemetery keep a record and make it available to people. I would drive there as it is about 3 1/2 hours away.

Alfred Gordon @ Laurel Grove
Hi Vivian! It's been a long time since our last contact (I'm on again, off again, here at find-a-grave)Just wanted to let you know I posted a pic of Alfred's headstone & apologize for not having anything handy to clean it before shooting the photo! You are welcome to download, photoshop and reload. Note the birth year. Will try to remember to reshoot next time I am in the vicinity ... hadn't realized it was one of your far flung Gordon tribe.

Hope all is well,

RE: Maria Allen Thompkins

Thank You for you response on Maria Allen Tompkins. Spent time on the Allen Family yesterday. Finally tied Lydia A Allen (65661327) to her daughter Elizabeth (83424081), and found other members of the Allen Family.

Regards, Grant
