Bio Photo "Queen of the genealogy sleuths!"

Find-A-Grave has been instrumental in finding valuable information and connections that would have taken years to find otherwise. I am deeply indebted to each photographer and every person that has taken the time to add details about their ancestors.


My contributions are in honor of those, who walked before us; no disrespect is intended whatsoever by my submissions to this website.

The information on FINDAGRAVE is provided by thousands of volunteers. Please let's not forget we are all volunteers. I take exception with those volunteers who say their photos are copyrighted. Why take photos if you're not going to share them with everyone? My photos are free to anyone who wants to copy them for non-profit purposes, no need to ask. A credit to FINDAGRAVE would be nice. After all, they are just photos of grave markers, not the Mona Lisa! (My thanks to Frank K. #46941322 for these words.)

Accuracy is of the utmost importance! Please contact me by using the "Edit" tab from the memorial, and then, "Suggest a correction" to send updated information.

I'm a 15th Generation American, directly descended from Richard Warren, my 11th Great-Grandfather, and James Chilton, my 12th Great-Grandfather, both of whom were passengers on the ship, Mayflower, that arrived in 1620, and my progenitor, William Morse, my 10th Great-Grandfather, who came on the ship, James, arriving in 1635.

I enjoy meeting my "cousins," so please contact me offline or leave a public message.

Please Note: I do not respond to any unkind comments or requests.

Happy Researching!

Hannah Cornell
Catherine Jo,
I have found a burial place for her but was told by another researcher that she was born in 1829 in Chemung, Chemung Co. NY and before Henry and Selena could move to MI she drown in the Chemung river in June 1845. She is buried in the Hicks Cemetery, Van Etten Junction, Chemung Co. NY.
I believe that this could have caused Henry and Selena to separate and go their own way before leaving for MI.

Looked through the cemetery pretty thoroughly for a couple of hours. Sorry, we could not find Hannah. There were a number of other other Cornells in different areas of the cemetery including some whose headstones were, unfortunately, unreadable. If there were later Cornell relatives buried there, it might narrow the area in which to look for Hannah's grave.

RE: Daniel Riley Harris
Happy it all worked out for you! Good to know I still can come up with good ideas once in while. ;-)

RE: Daniel Riley Harris

There is already a memorial for Daniel R. Harris, Memorial# 59954801 on which I put the photographs the monument and his grave marker. This memorial predates the one you are requesting that I add the photographs to, so the second one is a duplicate.

I see that you have sponsored the duplicate, so I would suggest that you contact find-a-grave and ask that they merge the two memorials. The email I usually us to make such requests is This would seem like the easiest solution. Alternatively, you could ask the creator of Memorial# 59954801 to delete that one, and then ask me again to add the photograph to the other memorial.

RE: Samuel Blackman
Very nicely done. I think you added additional information. Thank you. My purpose is to have the memorials mention that they are Revolutionary vets.

RE: Henry Cornell #110092862
Thanks for the quick reply. My surname is Cornwell and they were in Dutchess and Schoharie counties before they moved west. I have gotten stuck and have resorted to trying to track as many as I can to see if there is a connection. I have noted your contact information and if I come up with anything I will let you know.

I am located in Minnesota, so tracking New York information can be a challenge, but I keep trying.
