|Bio and Links|
I have lived in the Pacific NW most of my life, I travel and take cemetery pic's when I am able, mostly in OR, WA, ID, & MT. (and now SE Texas)|
I am researching these names:
SWEET, WENTZ, STILSON, FULLER, GRAY, HUFF, McCLAIN, and BRIGGS.
AANERUD, WELL, CUNNINGHAM, WALLER,
PORTER, WALKER, HOUSTON, GREENE,
COUNTISS, MUSICK, FLEENOR, and WEBB.
I don't mind transferring outside of the parameters of FAG, if you are related. Please use the edit tab. To be fair for the others that may be related, I will only transfer one of a couple, (ie Grandparents, GGparents etc.)to a single contributor.
I DO NOT link to virtual memorials.

Thanks so much for recent edits. I have made them and also linked Helen & Kenneth to a Burial Unk memorial I made for their son Dave (one of my classmates). Do you have any way to find out where Dave is buried? I got info from school website but don't have Funeral Home info & have hesitated to contact his sister, also not sure just how to - if you do have info I'd like to get his memorial in proper place. Again thanks so much and pls let me know if you want any of these which might be relatives to you transferred to you. Sandi

Elwood Sailer (your memorial #91214820) was my 3rd cousin, 3x removed. Would you kindly relinquish maintenance of the memorial to me so that I can link him to his mother at #91214820 rather than #99338436. Once linked, I'll delete my #99338436 of his mother, and no longer have duplicates posted for his mother.
Thank you in advance--
Craig L. Burton

I think you can as a relative ask the Federal Vets Adm. for a free stone for a Veteran if you could prove he was in the service. His name should be on the roster for his unit. Might be worth a try.

In this case the state was taking the land for a flood control dam. The state offered to move the markers & "the bucket" for free; if the family wanted the physical remains removed the family had to pay for it. In some cases, the burials were so old, the family saw no point; in some cases the family felt that their ancestors were buried where they wanted to be; in some cases, the family just didn't have the money; in some cases no family was located.
In the case of Quabbin where it was going to be a drinking water reservoir, the state moved the remains from the area to be flooded + the surrounding watershed.
When the local Catholic cemetery moved in 1865, they removed both because it was consecrated ground & they couldn't deconsecrate (not sure that is a word) it while there were burials remaining. They obviously missed some as it now is a playground & human bones have worked their way to the top.
|P.K. Magruder||re: Merge Clara Torrey|
From the cemetery description:
Unless a family member had the remains exhumed and moved, the remains were left in place. Soil from the original grave accompanied the marker and was placed under it at its new location in Norwich Bridge Cemetery...Note: Marker transcription, relationship links, picture of marker and any additional information are posted at Norwich Bridge Cemetery. A link to each memorial in Norwich Bridge Cemetery is included. For those few instances where the remains actually were moved, the only memorial is in Norwich Bridge Cemetery.
Huntington recorded if the remains actually were removed & in Clara's case they were not. Her remains are at Knightville; her marker is at Norwich Bridge.
|tofftroy||RE: Rensselaer County Farm Cemetery|
I just found this yesterday, from the Report of General Inspection of the Rensselaer County Almshouse by the NYS Board of Charities:
"CARE OF THE DEAD.
"A morgue is provided. Relatives are notified and religious services held at burials here. Graves are marked with wooden crosses, bearing name and date. Places of burial are on record.”
Journal of Proceedings of the Board of Supervisors of the County of Rensselaer for the Year Ending December 31, 1919. Troy, NY: Troy Observer Publishing Co. 80.
It would seem from at least 1859 to 1919 only wood boards or crosses were used as markers in that cemetery. As for the Almshouse's own record of burials, I've yet to find where it might be if it still exists. However, I'd guess it's relatively unlikely your person would have been buried there unless the family had no means or no interest in claiming her remains.

See http://fultonhistory.com/Newspaper%2018/Troy%20NY%20Daily%20Times/Troy%20NY%20Daily%20Times%201891-1892/Troy%20NY%20Daily%20Times%201891-1892%20-%200275.pdf">column 2. Are you certain she's not at Sand Lake Union Cemetery with the rest of her family?
