My belief is that family members, however distant, make the most caring managers of memorials.

I WELCOME all corrections, and with a few exceptions, I am happy to transfer any of the memorials I have created - on to those who have a relationship, or historical interest.

My own ancestors, family, friends, most local memorials, and special history interests, I do maintain in my care.

Sarah B. Durno
According to docmentation available on, Sarah B. Durno, widow, born New Hampshire 1806, died January 15 1889 at 1316 Vine Street, Philadelphia, PA. She was buried in
Laurel Hill Cemetery (NOT West Laurel Hill), Philadelphia, PA, on January 17 1889, name of undertaker--Moore. In 1875, according to the state census of that year, she was still in Brooklyn, widowed, and still involved with her late husband's snuff business. She had met him in Philadelphia in 1849 while she is said to have been there working with disadvantaged women in a Quaker institution known as Rosine House (but I could not find her name in any of the published reports of the period available online). Perhaps she returned to that work in Philly after 1875. I find it very hard to believe that there was more than one Sarah B. Durno born in New Hampshire in 1806. Moreover, there are BAGLEYs buried with her in the same lot in Laurel Hill. My advice--contact Laurel Hill Cemetery ( or 215-228-8200. Give the full name and burial date (January 17 1889), and ask for a document search. I can't make out the grave location on the Ancestry document image--but it looks like "Section One, Lot 30." There may be a fee--but it will be worth it--no bio of her that I have seen can even tell with any certainty when or where she died or where she is buried without reference to what I believe is the mistaken claim in her Find-a-Grave record, which can only be the product of an assumption that she would be buried with her husband--that's not evidence. I'm betting she's with other Bagleys in Philadelphia. Good luck and let me now what you find. We can update the Find-a-Grave page--and--I occasionally get to Philadelphia. I've even been to Laurel Hill--no promises, but it's possible.

Hello GeorgiaCA,
Thank you so much for sponsoring our sweet cat Luna's memorial. Your sponsorship means a lot to my daughter and me. Luna was a wonderful cat and we loved her and enjoyed having her as part of our family. We will never forget her.

RE: Family First

You are so kind!

Thank you so much for taking time to send me the information! I finally have my g grandparents, and parents, I was lucky enough to be able to add my grandparents myself. Would love to have my godparents, but ... I'm somewhat mollified that they are linked to parents and siblings.

Best wishes,
judy aka High Plains :)

She was born in Rowan County, KY. There were many, many Rameys there during the 19th century.

Anna Maria Schemerhorn Baker
The way the stones are laying down, I think they have been that way a long time, but as they are disintegrating as they are, it appears Anna Maria's stone was at least cracked some time ago.

You might contact the cemetery office and see about getting the stones righted.

Mrs William K Vanderbilt
I found obits and other things but nothing that tells where she is buried. My best guess would be she is with her husband William at:

Moravian Cemetery
New Dorp
Richmond County (Staten Island)
New York, USA
Plot: Vanderbilt Mausoleum

He has already been connected to your listing for her.
