Bio and Links
Bio Photo I volunteer at Oakwood Cemetery in Niagara Falls. I have some limited access to St. Mary's/Sacred Hearts Cemetery, which are adjacent to Oakwood, although most of their records have been destroyed and the cemetery is in ill repair.

St. Joseph's, Holy Trinity and Gate of Heaven (Lewiston) are not far away and within my travel range for photo requests. I will only take photo requests that already have grave section/area info because these are HUGE cemeteries. Call the cemetery office, tell them you are from far away and ask they provide you with the info so you can send someone else to get the photo. Most places will do one or two requests for FREE. After more than a couple, however, be prepared to pay some sort of fee.

Riverdale and Accacia Park will NOT process requests for Find A Grave photographers and are particularly unfriendly about it. Call them and get the grave location and put it in your photo request. These cemeteries want to charge photographers if they go in and ask for help. For one or two requests, they MIGHT do it over the phone for YOU. Remember: your family BOUGHT plots there. They work for YOU.

Visit my Virtual Cemetery "Oakwood's River Folks" for folks who have died stunting at The Falls or in The Niagara River and then stop by and say hi to my recently departed best friend, Eilean "Ellie" Lyonhil Donan in the Virtual Cemetery, "Beloved Friends".

Thank you, for the excellent photo, apologies if I have already done so, a bit dis-organised at the moment!

Abbot or Abbott?
Finally found the other memorial. His name is misspelled in the listing. What to do? Ask for them to be combined? Each has something the other doesn't but only by a misspelling in the search engine could you find the duplicate because I looked. His name in other sources is spelled "Abbott" and I would delete the duplicate except for that.

RE: ? re: Jeremiah Irons, #129527309
He lived in the town of Niagra New York in Niagra county. He was listed there as late as the 1860 census. He moved there from Lockport, NY in the 1850s. I hope this helps.

It was in a family tree a family member did. If you didn't find him initially I would hazard a guess that the tree is wrong. Thank you for looking and contacting me to let me know.
