William H. Bresee, FAG 127168608
Hello Cindy, My name is Paul Turner. I do research on a Civil War Regiment, the 134th NY Volunteer Infantry. The unit was princially made up of residents of Schenectady and Schoharie Counties in eastern upstate NY. I had an ancestor who served in the unit. I maintain a Virtual Cemetery for the 134th.

Thank you for creating a memorial for William H. Bresee, Find A Grave 127168608. My records show the following member of the 134th:

"BRESEE. WILLIAM H.—Age, 23 years. Enlisted at Middleburgh, to serve three years, and mustered in as private, Co. D, August 4, 1862; promoted corporal, September 22, 1862; discharged, January 30, 1865, at hospital, Newark, N. J. ; also borne as Brasee and Brazee." (Source: Report of the Adjutant General, page 612).

The Find A Grave memorial makes no reference to any Civil War Service. However, your memorial indicates he died at "age 54 years". That would correspond to the the birth age of the person cited above, who enlisted in 1862 at an age of 23.

Do you know of any New Jersey based resources that could confirm that the memorial you created is for the same person who served in the 134th? DAR Cemetery records would be the most obvious first stop.

Thanks for any light you can shed on his record.

Thank you so much for the obit for Janet! I was glad to have her maiden name; I also made family links to her daughters, but was unable to find her son.

Frank Nieder Memorial
Hi Cindy, thank you so much for finding the Obituary for Frank Nieder. This is my wife's family, Frank is her Great Granduncle. The Nieder family owned a tannery factory employing at one time, three thousand people, on Emmet Street, Avenue C, and Wright Street, in Newark. Frank Nieder lived about two and a half blocks away from the factory on Goble Street.

You did good in your research, also I would like to thank you for the transfer.

Again thank you,

Orval & Rosemary Elsner Hodges

RE: Holy Cross
Ok here you go. The Plot was bought in 1892 and they think there may be other transfered here in 1892 but it would cost money to do a further research on the grave.

This is what info they could give too me

Phebe A Clark Williams
Dear Cindy,
I am wondering how you obtained the additional information on the Phebe A Clark Williams page...?..."Wife of John Henry Williams-mother of Emma, Charles, Frank and Herbert". I am particularly interested in knowing the specific connection between the Williams and the Clarks. Was she a sister to Jacob Clark, or daughter, or is there another connection. I am related to Jacob's wife Maryetta, and trying to add in some information particularly on things like these, where there are possibilities, but no confirming answers. I assumed (perhaps incorrectly) that you might be related and might have more information on these folks because of the additional information.
Thank you in advance and Happy New Year!
