Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

I feel that its important to say at least a little something about each of their lives. They lived, they loved, and had families. For those that have nothing there, they're not forgotten, I just haven't gotten there yet. 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 and family photos of Elbert N. Carter; George Moraitis, Historian for the Cedar Hill Cemetery, Port Jefferson (R.I.P. my friend); Steve Gill from the Patchogue Cemeteries Restoration Committee; Dan Prunty, Ruland Funeral Home and President of Cedar Grove Cemetery, for his patience and tireless trips into the basement.

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 you need to contact me, send to aislin at

RE: Clarissa Smith Find A Grave Memorial# 75070931
Dear Aislin, I actually have Clarissa living with her son, Edwin (and his wife Ann, and their children Lucy and Jesse) in Smithtown in the 1850 census. I would be happy to forward the census pages (of course there are two) if you would like to see them.

Clarissa Smith Find A Grave Memorial# 75070931
Thank you for taking the time to find and photograph this headstone. I can't quite make out all of the words on it, can you tell me if that is where you found her dates of birth and death, or if you found those at some other place?

RE: Louis Cantor

Sorry - I don't know either.

Louis Cantor

You have the wrong parents for Louis Cantor, 1884-1967. He was the son of Avram Cantor and Chaya Ruchel Orelowitz and was born in Rokiskis, Lithuania.

This is my family and I have an extensive genealogy on it.
