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.

Find A Grave Memorial# 79784696
Thank you so much for the wonderful gift of time and effort you have given us by taking and sharing the grave photos. It has meant the world to me! I a asking about John Vosburgh's grave. He was married first to a Mary E. (no maiden name yet). She died shortly after the 1900 census. He remarried soon. I can't find her grave. I am wondering if there is an way to find out if se is buried somewhere in the Sand Hill cemetery. Can you me any ideas? He is remarried by the 1905 NY state census. Except for the Civil War and 1885 census he never leave the Cayuga area. I appreciate any help you can give me.

RE: Alphonzo Booth
I see the death date was slightly off and went back to check. It's hard to tell a 3 from an 8 on those old newspapers but the death date I think should read "March 23", and not 28 (Memorial# 38147542_. ~Nancy

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?
