Thank you very much for the information. The last time I was in New York was 2007 and Watertown was before 1973, so I am a little out of it. I have moved them all now as you said and am still adding more information. Again thank you

RE: Frederick Mattison headstone
Looking at the photos, they are in the North Watertown Cemetery. I posted the pictures in response to a request, so at that time either there was a second (duplicate) memorial in the correct location (North Watertown) where I filled the request, and then it was reported as a duplicate and merged with the original and left in the wrong cemetery (most likely scenario as that has happened quite a few times before) ....or the memorials were moved to the wrong cemetery. I've been to both cemeteries many times, and that clearly looks like North Watertown. I do find a lot of memorials mixed up between those two cemeteries, but if I ever do find and photograph the marker in the incorrect cemetery I notify the manager. Usually I wait for it to be moved before posting, or I post and leave note in the comment field regarding the correct cemetery location (these memorials don't show a comment).

Frederick and Chauncey Jr. I do not know the area very well and yet it was my first home. There are pictures of headstones(my request) and nothing was said then so a bit confused now. Can you help me a bit? Is Watertown City mot in Watertown or like most citys a town that grew outwards? I was just trying to get family on findagrave. I have returned many times in my 70 years but not with my family that would know. Thank you

WOW...... Thank you ever so much for the memorial stone photos of Hendrick & Arriaantje Breese including their son-in-law Asa Clark.
Am surprised the memorial is in as good a shape as it appears. Not everything is legible, but good enough to confirms much of my earlier findings.
You've made an old man happy.

re: Emma Washburn at Lakeview
Thank you for bringing this memorial to my attention. That will teach me to blindly accept a SAC for a birth date. They are not the same people. I have added a note to the memorial which may help to define the two, and will continue to research to find out more information.
