|Bio and Links|
Since 1990, I have been working on the genealogy of my husband's family. In 1997 a computer was foisted on me and the real fun started! I began researching my own family in 2000 as a 70th b-day present for my brother. In sleuthing for family gravesites in the Northeast, we have physically unearthed family headstones. During the process of gathering family data, we have had a refresher course in US History as well as some post-grad work. The threads of our country's fabric have been spun from the family histories in our cemeteries. |
In 2003-04,I had the pleasure of working with Michael Robert Patterson to identify family genealogy in many burials he had listed on his superb Arlington National Cemetery website. Michael linked the families on the website and supplied copious biographical information. The "family" continually amazed us both.
At the time, I neglected to enter names in findagrave's Arlington list and have tried to catch up, but alas too late to add many of our family ,as others gleaned the information from the above website and added it to findagrave.
I will not link entries created as "burial unknown" to our family memorials, for that is not the mission of this website as stated below.
"Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information . . ..
Memorial contributions to Find A Grave must fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition.”
"Location of body unknown is used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. Final disposition must be determined and updated within 30 days."
All of my entries in Find a Grave have been family members,until recently when I put in a few names from some obscure places that may be your family.

|Carole Elizabeth Nurmi Cummings # 47178231||Hi there Shirley...|
Like you, I was surprised as well. She did just put all of the Blauvelts as cremated when they were actually interred and in cemeteries. I will try to locate the burials of our Blauvelt cousins and link them with the family members with bios and such.
Thanks again for the note!
|Wanda||RE: Blauvelt, Ellen N.|
I believe the three crypts were purchased by Charles for himself and sons. The mausoleum had not been built at the time of Ellen's demise.

I will look at it further when I get home, but there are MANY grandchildren, great grandchildren and great great grandchildren. My email is email@example.com if you want to tough base that way. I will help any way I can.
|Karen Westrich||George Washington Terrill|
Thank you for the wonderful information you have placed out here. George Washington Terrill was my great grandfather. I remember visiting him and Aunt Velda who cared for him in his later years. If I can help you in any way please let me know. My mother is the oldest daughter of Lowell Elmo Terrill.
|Wanda||Blauvelt, Ellen N.|
I recently claimed a photo request for the above. In Mountain View's database Ellen N. (1862-1914) is listed complete with burial location. However, the burial location has a marker with the name of Nellie N. Blauvelt 1860-1914. Would you happen to know if Ellen went by the name of "Nellie"?
Charles Coatesworth Blauvelt is buried in an unmarked crypt. Would you like to have a mausoleum
photo and/or the crypt?

|Carole Elizabeth Nurmi Cummings # 47178231||Hope this finds you doing super!|
Spring has spring here and the flowers are all abloom. Been quite fun seeing the colors abound!
When I was trying to get all of this Blauvelt line linked together I ran across this entry, 129565076
I then turned to our Blauvelt Association Membership records and this is what they had in the membership records for this individual. I have cut and paste below. This appeared to line up with the memorial entry in Oak Hill. Wanted to send you the information. Wanted to give you a little heads up. Thanks ever so much!
I have found with my little family, that bodies seemed to be buried in one place, only to be interred in another when a family plot is purchased. Keeps us on our toes!
Thanks an awful lot!
Birth 26 Feb 1796
Reference Number 790; (669)
Died 3 May 1838
Buried Nyack, Rockland Co., New York 
Buried as "Annie"
|Don Knight||Photos and Such|
In much of my travels through the genealogy maze I've found many times when you were the source of information or photos to help me build the Stanton branch of my tree. First, thank you for all the contributions you have made. I think most of your work I am aware of is from Find A Grave.
I would like to use some of your Stanton photos in my ancestry.com family tree if you have no objections. Of course credit will be given to you.
Most recently I have been following branches that led me to the Stantons from the Michigan area. There seems to be more detailed information than I usually see, especially pictures, so it made me wonder if you are a close relative of the Michigan group and if so how you tie in. Do you have a tree on ancestry?
Thanks for your consideration.
|Kirk Moulton||Captain Isaac Gerow|
I am writing an article for publication on the first 4-5 generations of Secord.
I was very interested in your entry for Captain Isaac Gerow and the Daniel Secord who signed his will. Have you seen this will and know how I can get a copy of it?
Also, in Gerow, Arthur C., Early Giraud – Gerow Families in America, Detroit, MI, 1963, p. 28. we find • On 11 May 1773, Isaac Giraud of North Castle gave a bill of sale to Daniel Gerow of Cortlandt Manor, witnessed by John Free and Daniel Secord. I can send you a copy of this page if you want.
Write me at firstname.lastname@example.org
