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.
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 optonline.net

Hi-she shows up in the Nov 14, 1870 NY passenger list on ancestry.com as "Lina"-at least I do believe this is the same person as your Talena. She came over with a "Lina" age 10 months, and another child, which is hard to read, Tania? Tina? Just an FYI. Irma

|Ann Wilson||Ritchie family|
Iran across Grave Memorial #94330793 Wallace Gilbert Ritchie with father listed a Wilmot Gilbert Ritchie and mother as Harriet Pearl "Drake" Ritchie. Hattie is my Grandmother, Olive Lillian Dake Pettingell's sister and I knew them well. I only knew two sons of the Ritchies, Don and Ken. Please review your records and correct Harriet's (Hattie)maiden name to DAKE. She was the daughter of Alvah FLEEMAN Dake and Ida May/Mary Spencer.
If you have a copy of the plot's (Cedar Grove Cemetery in Patchogue NY) list of burials I would like a copy sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks. You have done a wonderful job taking pictures.

Thanks to your hard work removing dirt to get your GREAT photo of the transcription on the gravestone for Halsey Hulse (Find A Grave Memorial # 6420685), and a lot of squinting and mental acrobatics, I FINALLY figured out what it said. Very difficult!
Here it is --
Gone to dwell with Jesus where
there will be no more sadness, sorrow
or pain, but where he will praise the
Thanks again, Aislin!

You never took me if you were related? I found information that John and Eliza had another child John W. that died at 6 month 20 days. I have seen the stone next to his mother in the McLean Cemetery. I have a picture of it. But I didn't know about the son Stanley.

I will be going to Mt Pleasant next week. Do you have plot information for Jemima Saxton?

I see that you created this memorial. Was wondering if you are a relation to this person and how you got the information about his first wife and children? His first wife Eliza Jane Smith is a relation to me.
Thanks for your help.
Sharon Smith Butts
Thank you for the additional info for their memorial.

Just transferred the memorial to you. You don't need to re-transfer to me unless you don't wish to keep it...I'm not into numbers so trying to achieve the most memorials is not my goal. Happy to cooperate in whatever way is good for you. Thanks!!
