When I was researching my own family, I received a great deal of help from complete strangers who were willing to help me without asking anything in return. I felt the need to pay that forward. So it tickles me beyond words to discover my headstone photos as part of someone's family tree. How sad would it be if after all the photos are taken and posted and researched and documented that no one looked at them or cared that they were there. So to those of you who have found my photos and made use of them, thanks for caring and you're most welcome.|
For the most part I am unrelated to most of the memorials I have posted. For those that I'm not, I find it sad to leave them as just names and dates and feel that its important to say at least a little something about their lives. And while I don't always cite my sources on each memorial, for Long Island special thanks goes to Carolee Nichols Diamond and David Roberts for their unending patience and wealth of information, the transcriptions of Elbert N. Carter and longislandgenealogy and Ancestry, (with a nod to the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, various volumes), Suffolk County Historical Newspapers, George Moraitis, Historian for the Cedar Hill Cemetery, Port Jefferson, Steve Gill from the Patchogue Cemeteries Restoration Committee, Dan Prunty, Ruland Funeral Home and President of Cedar Grove Cemetery, and Marcy from Cedar Grove, who lets me raid her records without complaint.
If you find something that needs correcting, or if you have information you'd like added, please use the SAC and I'll be happy to make the changes. If its a close family member and you'd like to have it transferred into your care, please let me know. Again, most of them are unrelated to me and I would gladly have them find a home with family.

Hi. I wanted to ask you for permission to use the photo you took of Gene Horton's gravestone for my ancestry tree. He was my Mom's cousin. Thanks.

|Gale Olsson McHale||RE: Ketchum and Nancy Chichester|
once again I am amazed by the obituaries and other info that you find. Charles' was wonderful. What a courageous man along with his fellow officers. I have a funny feeling that one of the men he found frozen to the mast is also buried at oakwood. A while back I came across a headstone with a ton of writing on it. It was extremely old and almost completely illegible. But I vaguely remember it said something about the sea. But bc I couldn't read the name I just payed my respects and moved on. But if you ever come across those peoples names and find out that they are in oakwood let me know bc I remember the area its in and should be able to locate it. As long as it wasnt destroyed this week during that freak rain storm.
But any way back to charles. Through the help of the obituary I was able to link him to two of his sons. I believe his wife, even though she wasn't mentioned, is ana bc she is buried bear him. Once again thank you sooo much :-)
