Alonzo Ranney, Cypress Hills National
Thanks a lot for taking the great photo of Alonzo Ranney's headstone.

Could you please post as a caption to one of your photos for his memorial:
"son of Freeman Ranney and Emily Flanders

Source: Charles Collard Adams, Middletown Upperhouses, p. 216."

The poor man had no family of his own so it would be nice to list his parents on his memorial somewhere.

Alonzo Ranney, Cypress Hills National
Thanks for posting the military record of Alonzo Ranney, who is a lateral ancestor of mine. (His death certificate and census information indicates that he was not married so likely he had no direct ancestors). Would you mind either transferring his memorial to me (48224322), or if you prefer to keep it, could you post this information on your memorial page (2596653):

"Son of Freeman Ranney of Vermont and Emily Flanders, and brother of Henry Clay Ranney, buried in Evergreens Cemetery, Henry appears in the US Census with his parents and brothers living in Vermont in 1850 and in Boston Massachusetts in 1860. The NY State Census reveals that he and his family were living in Brooklyn NY by 1865.

According to genealogist C. Collard Adams, Alonzo's younger brother Ephraim Clark Ranney also served in Union Army (30th Massachusetts Volunteers) and died in Baton Rouge, LA."
