George Sigler, Prospect Cmty. Hi Cindy, thanks for the transfer for Sylvia. My computer has been down. I was surprised that you are related to George. Let's share info. How are you related? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I know who his parents & some siblings are & I know a lot about his mother. I thought I knew everyone who might be related to George's branch, or are you related to his sibling? I didn't think George had too many descendants, unless George's 2 sisters had a lot of kids. Dana
Laurel Grove Cemetery; COOPER Hi Cindy, I will not be surprised if I at some point find an ancestor somewhere that connects us somehow! The more genealogy research progress I make the more I discover more connections to 'known' families. My Coopers - I'm still working on that line. I was absolutely thrilled (thanks to you!) to connect grandma Jeanette COOPER to at least some of her family members. A cousin had gone to visit great-aunt and she remembered some names - so those names, and memorials confirmed each other. I need to do more research but brief details here ... Paterson, 18 JUL 1850: Jeannett BERRISFORD; Age 28; Female; b. Scotland William B. BERRISFORD; Age 7; Male; b. NJ; attended school Henry BERRISFORD; Age 4; Male; b.

William COOPER and Jeanette had 3 children: Willot W. [md: Minnie SCHEIDER], Arnold [md Mary] and John [have found no record of marriage...or death]. I'm stuck on finding details for Wm. COOPER (the one that married Jeanette who was born in Scotland in 1823) .... but finding "Willot" was a miracle!
Memorial# 148163421 George Jenkinson I am trying to trace this person's family in doing genealogy research in hopes of connecting missing biological family through DNA testing/research. Was there any information available on George's parents that was available to you? I am scouring but coming up empty-handed.
RE: Blackburn / Dobson phot requests OK - that's understandable. Anyway, as I said, the father is definitely buried there - it's in the parish register. So as I said, you can create memorial, connect to children and request photo.
If you know when Bestsey died I can check the register to confirm that she is also buried there. It's also useful to know when the first person on a headstone died, as they are often in some sort of date order in the churchyard.
Afraid there is not much more I can do, unless I happen to be out Winsford way again. Regards Peter
RE: Blackburn / Dobson phot requests The Thomas Blackburn you refer to in your last note is not the Thomas Blackburn that you have requested a photo for. The Thomas that died 1892 was buried at St John. The parish register shows this as happening on the 17th May.
I can find no confirmation that the Thomas who died in 1913 (your photo request) was buried at St John, although the death record shows he died in that area.
Having photographed all the Blackburns I spotted, neither was found. You may care to create a memorial for the Thomas that died in 1892 and request a photo - someone else may have better luck in finding it than me. Regards Peter
RE: Blackburn / Dobson phot requests Thanks for your notes. As the photo I took is definitely the one you want, I have now fulfilled your request. I'll then leave you to have a closer look at the dates. You need to zoom in as that part of the engraving is not very clear. Regards Peter
I visited St John's church in Winsford today, to try and satisfy your photo requests.
I could not find Thomas Blackburn who died 1913, and I'm a little confused about the request for Jane Dobson.
There is already a photo attached to Jane's memorial and I found this headstone. However, the death date quoted does not appear to agree with what I think is engraved on the headstone. So on 2 counts I'm slightly reluctant to add my photo. As I've created memorials for Edward Dobson and Roger Dobson who share the same headstone, you may like to look at their photos to see for yourself.
I spent about an hour and a half looking round and really only had time to properly check out the older graves around the church. In doing so though, I did find some other Blackburn graves and I have created memorials for them - maybe you have a connection with them. Regards Peter
Alfreta Hindenlang (#131367088) Cindy, First let me say thank you for this memorial. It's enabled me to track a branch of my family tree I had not been able to locate before. Second I just received an E-mail from St' John's Norway Cemetery in Toronto saying Alfreta is buried there. Do you have any further information on where you found her in NJ? Could this be a transcription error? Rick Jones
You created this memorial for John Murphy, son of Sarah and the late Charles Murphy.
I'm researching what might be the same Murphy family and would like to touch base to see if it is the same family. If it is the same family, they are my GG grandparents (Sarah & Charles). They lived in Flatlands, Brooklyn, and had 10 children.
Giles Van Ness grave Condy - regarding Find A Grave Memorial# 70709930. I put a remark as to whom I think it is, based on the birthdate. Plz see the Find A Grave. Maybe there was more info on the tombstone, like the death date? Glen
