RE: Roy VanDyne
You are very welcome Tom, I'm just sorry that most of the stone is under the ground and we can't read it.

Irene Carper Cook.

Irene Carper Cook is my distant cousin. I came across your photo of the grave after I have been working on the Carper family tree.

If you have any photos or information on any of the Carper line, I would appreciate if you can send me anything you may have.

Thank you.

RE: Sophia Merryman headstone photo
Hi Tim - thanks - I did contact them and found that the transcription came from a 1900 book (which I happen to own). I especially appreciate your photo. This is a significant ancestor in our family and so amazing to find her just in the past few months. Regards, Janice

Sophia Merryman headstone photo
Thank you so much for uploading this photo into her memorial #86229274. She is my 3rd great grandmother and the family has had some problems with her documentation. I see that the memorial has these dates for her:
Mar. 16, 1790
Death: Jul. 26, 1881
and this inscription: Note: wife of Migagah (which is the clincher, her husband was known as Micajah Merryman)

I have a question about the dates - the DAR has documentation that she was born Birth 3 - Mar - 1790 and died 4 - Aug - 1881. Did you supply those dates from your headstone reading? I want to make notes as to the sources of her dates. I always transcribe the headstone for findagrave even if it is shown to be different from official documents. Also, this photo looks like it comes from some sort of headstone photo taken long ago. If so, could you tell me where it came from so I can properly document it? She is a missing piece for a link in an ancestor for the DAR and also for the Pilgrim Society so I want to make sure I know what we have here. Thank you so much for whatever you can tell me. Regards, Janice
