I am trying to downsize the number of memorials I manage, so ask for a transfer.

NOTE; Pleaze use the Edit function on the memorial to ask questions, which identifies the person in question. I have tens of thousands of names in my records and your courtesy is much appreciated.

I have fulfilled a couple of requests for you for Robertson Cemetery in Hornell NY . However, did you know that there is another Robertson/Rural Cemetery in Find a grave which is the same cemetery and has many more burials listed?

RE: John Wiseman
You are very welcome. It's always an honor to photograph a veteran's grave. My pleasure!

RE: Frank Torrance
No need to transfer unless you want to. This is the husband of my ex-wife's 2nd cousin 3x removed. LOL, yeah, kinda distant I know.

Thanks for updating though... Doug

RE: Lyman Peck Jr
Laugh when you read this, please!

I think Lyman Peck, Jr (Memorial# 20462724) may have been a Justice of the Peace. Though he could very well have been a Peach of a Justice!

Alvin V. Delay
Thank you for the info on Alvin Delqy. Someone sent this info. I see there is a Clifford Delay shown as his son. Don't know if this is correct but I can't do anything about it.
