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), George Moraitis, Historian for the Cedar Hill Cemetery, Port Jefferson, Steve Gill from the Patchogue Cemeteries Restoration Committee 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.

I've just re-visited some of my Darling family memorials that you have recently posted AND updated on my behalf. I wanted to thank you again for the extra effort of posting related research materials! They will go a long way in helping me to piece together this family and extend my family tree back another generation or two!
If I can return the favor with any cemetery and/or research in southern Maine or the nearby area, please do let me know.

Thank you so much for doing this Aislin. I appreciate it. I am researching my family tree and I don't live anywhere near Suffolk County and it's through the unselfishness of kind people like yourself that the pieces of the family tree start to fall together and history and ancestry can be preserved.
Thanks so much!

Hello! I've recently found your records in both Cedar Hill Cemetery and Cedar Grove Cemetery for members of the Darling and Newey families who are my ancestors.
I am most interested in Charles W. Darling and his wife Sarah Kineer (#92442828, #92442905) and their daughter Mary Darling Newey (#92442515).
I hope to find documentation of Charles & Sarah's relation to Mary (birth or marriage records, perhaps... cemetery records?) and thought you might be able to provide a hint as to where I should look.
The longislandgenealogy.com website includes the family group in its database, but source documentation is not noted.
Thanks so much for your work in these cemeteries! I am finding so many avenues for research in this branch of my family tree.

I took a photo today of the Brace headstone in St. Michaels cemetery. Also buried there is Benjamin F. Brace 1875-1938 but I do not see a memorial for him. I will add one today, but if you want me to transfer to you, I will.

Thank you for posting this info on my grandmother
Edith Williams Russel
My father was Elmer Lewis Williams
( it was misspelled in the 1930 census)
He was cremated and there is no grave.
I will look into creating a virtual Find A Grave memorial, which I think is possible
The youngest child was Raymond Terrill Williams,
I find no memorial for him either, but he is in a veterans cemetery listing I found
If this is not your family, I would be interested in having control of it. I am hesitant because I just joined Find A Grave and know little about how it works

He was my great uncle and would graciously accept transference to me thank you
|Larry Caplin||Edward N. Robinson|
I have transferred this memorial to you and it is a pleasure to do so, seeing how much good work you have done on Find a Grave. Thank you for all of that and for contacting me.

I deleted mine. Thanks for letting me know.
