RE: grave #135304938 John/Agnes/Mary Kenney Thank you so much for your offer to search Ancestry. I have a membership also. Agnes we know. But John and Mary/Ann, we are unsure of who they are. My family's descendent John died out in Seattle. But have seen a J. Kenney living with Agnes in the 1860 NY census. He was 38. If this is a second John in the same family (seen duplicate naming every once in a while) he is a new member. Mary/Ann is also unknown to us. We are looking for Agnes' daughter also named Agnes, who could easily be a Mary Agnes, in the cemetery. Her married name is Horne and she died in Manhattan in Oct 1866. So we don't have a lot of clues. I think I'll just have to wait and see what the folks at Green-Wood come up with. If we turn up anything on the grave's occupants, I'll let you know so you can expand your grave record. Thanks again. Donna Kenney
RE: grave #135304938 John/Agnes/Mary Kenney Tim - I have a question for you that I hope you can answer regarding this stone you took a look at the back of. I did as you suggested and engaged the services of the genealogical staff at Greenwood. They gave me a stone location for an Agnes Kenney. In their research they located the info on her death which matched the Agnes I was looking for. They only addressed her and no word on the other two names of John and Mary. Now with a little more money in their pockets they told me that indeed there were two more people in the grave - a John and Ann Kenney (not Mary). They are going to look into their burial info for me. The data that these researchers found for me comes from a grave located in Section 59 Lot 11734 and grave 19. My question for you is - when you photographed the grave of Agnes, John, and Mary Kenney - did you have to get the lot number etc from the office or did you photograph what stones that were present in section 59? I'm just trying to make clear that the stone Greenwood is researching is the same stone as you photographed. Thank you. :) Donna Kenney
Green-Wood database lot number error Michael--an error in the Green-Wood burial database says that Alice Mary Clemett is buried in lot 27271. You photographed that lot and put it on her page. But she is with her parents, Eleanor and William, in lot 28271--which you also photographed (on William Clemett's page). Can you do a switch-copy the photo from William Clemett's page to Alice's?
RE: ignore my comment suggestion Thanks for the message. I was so excited that you created memorials for the 2 people who appear to be his parents. I linked them to him, but will try to check further. I am related to a Charles Mount--but not this one! Alice
RE: Thomas D. Earle Thank you Michael. That is very interesting although I cannot figure out any association to the Boniface family. However, I found a moritury notice of Thomas D. Earle in a newspaper. Thank you again for letting me know.
RE: grave #135304938 John/Agnes/Mary Kenney Thanks so much for going to the cemetery. I am not surprised that there was nothing on the back, but I had to know. Guess I'll have to get the genealogy department to dig into it. Sigh. Thanks again! Donna Kenney
RE: grave #135304938 John/Agnes/Mary Kenney Thank you for being willing to look at the stone. This stone is not registered in Greenwood's burial search. My husband's great great grandmother is also buried in another section with no stone. They did not have this on Burial search either and denied she was buried there. It wasn't until I told them that I had a 150 yr old burial receipt that they went looking and came back saying she was indeed buried there. Soooo i know their burial search is not very complete. But you are right, I will probably need to fork over the cash and have them look into this stone you photograhed. It has all the right names of our family. Look forward to hearing back from you. Hope there is something on the back!!! Donna Kenney.
grave #135304938 John/Agnes/Mary Kenney Michael - This headstone you photographed just has names on it. You photographed this at Greenwood. It is located in Plot 59. I'm trying to find out if there is anything on the other side of the stone to explain the engraving. Each name has significance in my family and two of the names we know died in the area. Can you add anything to the background on this stone?? Donna Kenney
