Ann and John Downey
Hi Craig! Just came back from Niagara. The only "Ann Downey" there has a different year of death than the one you have, so I'm hoping it's the same person. Having said that, there are also many headstones that are impossible to read due to age.
Unfortunately I could not locate John Downey but there are other "Downeys" right next to Ann:

George Downey, died Feb 26 1928, aged 62 yrs
James Downey, died June 12 1929, aged 72 yrs
Thomas Downey, Born June 16 1871, Died Oct 4th 1935.

I have the photos of those headstones, I will try to get those published.

Thanks, hope that helps on your research.

Take care

Ann "Toner" Downey
On her son James's death certificate it has her name as "Turner." I realize this could easily be wrong, but I thought it was worth noting so that this could be clarified.

Hi Craig, I haven't forgotten about you, our trip to Niagara was rescheduled for next month. My claim was cancelled so i reported it to Find A Grave and hopefully they will re-enable it. Either way, if I somehow cannot post a photo I will let you know and we will find another way.

Take care

RE: Holy Trinity
Hello Craig, unfortunately my trip to Niagara has been postponed. But I am going there eventually so I will keep this request open, if the system drops it please feel free to send me a note and I will pick it up again.

Thanks and sorry for the boo-boo but the kids have a Cadets trip booked on that same weekend and we had to drop the trip.

RE: Mary Long in Williamsville Cem.
Hi again Craig,
I called Forest Lawn to see if I could get anything more definitive on Mary Long. (There are so many Hersheys and Longs in the cemetery and none seemed to be a better fit). They checked their computer and found a Mary Long in section A30 (where I had been concentrating my searches anyhow)but the death date does not match nor does the birthdate. This stone would have her birth date approx. Nov. 11 1780 or Nov. 11 1786 to a death date of April 11, 1838. The plot of land that this stone is on was owned by an Emmanuel Long. I uploaded this new picture as well. It indicates "Mary, wife of John Long, Died April 11, 1838 aged 51(or 57) years, 6 months etc." This stone that they connected me to is near a John Long (not the husband or the son) and a Fanny Long wife of Abraham Hershey.
