Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started going to cemeteries in geneology searches. As I went thru the cemeteries I realized how much the stones wear down (and all the other factors - cemeteries not being kept up, vandalism, etc) and that someday you wouldn't be able to read those stones.

I also realized what great things people were doing by taking pics, and volunteering to take pics, for people who were looking for their family and couldn't get to the area.

So...I starting taking pictures myself. Now that we have digital cameras all it costs me is my time. And the results are great...people find family they're looking for and most importantly, those that were buried in the cemetery and the stones were put up for are not forgotten.

Alphonzo Booth
Hi, Thought you might like to add this to the bio for Alphonzo Booth, at Virgil Rural (Memorial# 38147542) ~Nancy

published in the Northern Christian Advocate, December 24, 1862: Alphonso Booth died of consumption, in Virgil, March 28, 1862, in the 27th year of his age.

RE: Horace Perkins
i believe the confusion is in the mother of John "Horace" Perkins. In the Genealogical & Family History of Central NY Vol 1 dated 1912 Author William Richard Cutter , that I have says on page 113, that John Horace was born 30 Nov 1842 #76832598 is son of John Caspar Perkins and his first wife Achsah Sessions, and this has to be in error in the book,
because Achsah died in 1842, and John Horace Perkins birthdate on tombstone is 30 Nov. 1843.
So Catharine Price would be the mother as you currently have it?

RE: Helen Willett
Never mind about my last comment. You have already taken care of that in biography section. I have her birth date as 30 May 1842. Can you verify that?

RE: Helen Willett
Thanks again for your extra effort. If you think it would be useful you might add some of the information that you found to the caption of the marker.

RE: Helen Willett
I did not see any of those dates until you just now posted the photograph of the stone. The stone has a date of death of July 15, 1924. Does the cemetery register have a date of March 1, 1924? The stone has her age as 74 which would make her year of birth 1850 but I thought she was born 30 May 1842 which would make her just short of 82. I don't understand any of this. Something is wrong.

Thanks for posting the photo of the gravestone of Hellen Willett, my great-grand aunt. I really appreciate it. I have several other edits which I posted. I think you will see them soon. Thanks for your attention.
