Maple Grove Cemetery
Thank you for the grave photos for the Moore family at Maple Grove. Even though it turned out the graves were not marked I still appreciate the photos, and the time and effort.

RE: Hutzler Family
Thank you! I did visit your website and it is very nice. Alice was my 2nd cousin twice removed so I don't know a lot about her and her family.
Thank you,

Hutzler Family
Thank you so much for taking the time to go to the cemetery and for taking the nice photo. I'm sorry to see they don't have a headstone. Could I please use the photo on my ancestry public family tree?
Thank you,

RE: Youngs grave marker photos
I don't know much else on Frederick Tully Youngs Sr. other than what I wrote on his memorial. I am sure, however, that if you google him or the church, you might find some more details. The Youngs are part of my daughter-in-law's paternal line, so I haven't done a lot of research on them. I do know the family is quite proud of what he did.
Do you ever get to St. John Cemetery in Middle Village in Queens? I have one burial there that needs a grave photo and has a request.

Hi Carl
I would be happy to add Charlottes memorial.
Is she buried in the same place as George?

thanks John

Youngs grave marker photos
Can't thank you enough for finding and taking the photos of the Youngs family members. I would never get my husband to travel to Queens to do this ourselves! Much appreciated.
