Bio and Links
Bio Photo This little child is part of a memorial in Oakwood Cemetery, Syracuse. It reminds me of all the infants buried there. Hopefully I have provided memorials so they would not be forgotten.

I would be happy to transfer anyone, other than family, to you. Just contact me. And you are very welcome to use my photos in your family tree without asking, but my curiosity would like to know which ones are being used.

A special thank you to Tom C for helping with information on Oakwood Cemetery residents. We have entered every name from the cemetery records up through December 2013 into findagrave to hopefully help you in your search. Thanks Tom!

Would it be possible to get a photo of my great grandmothers grave? We have been looking for her for so long - I live in California and she is in Syracuse, NY

RE: O'Blenis in Oakwood

I guess I wasn't very clear. There are 2 photos of gravestones on George Blenis' page. One is the tall stone that does list his parents on one side and he and his wife on another. The other photo is just above the one of the tall monument on George's Find A Grave page. It shows a stone that says George O'Blenis in the middle with some unreadable writing above and below. It is a somewhat more visible on John O'Blenis' page just to the right of the tall monument. Anyway, that is the stone that is really erected to John by George. I suspect the unreadable writing is about his father. If you look at the article I posted it gives a more complete image. It's a pretty interesting story!

RE: Willard Lipe


I found an obit for Virgina S. Lipe. I made a memorial for Virginia # 139438379 and attached her to Willard. The dates were cut off the newspaper, so I don't have an exact date of death, just that she died in Nov. 1924.

John Redington
I do not remember if I contacted you or not but I am writing an article in John Redington for the St. Lawrence County Historical Association's Quarterly and I was wondering if I could use your photo of his grave, I will give you credit.

RE: Oakwood
Diane: Now that you mention it, I do not get any requests for Oakwood. The only city requests I receive are for Onondaga Valley and Walnut Grove on the hill. Most of the other ones come from Madison or Cortland county. Which makes no sense, as I live in the 13078 zip code. Go figure! Incidentally, if you run across any 19th cen gravestones signed by the manufacturer (usually on the base, lower right) let me know. I'm particularly interested in Robert Spaulding, Isaac and Sydney Stanton, and Joseph Watson. Thanks.
