Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a volunteer photographer for Find-A-Grave. I do not mind my photos being copied (unedited and uncropped, please) and used on other websites like All I ask is that you attach the following credit so others will know the original source:

2009 by MixedStock at Find-A-Grave. Photo used by permission.

You can find the correct year of the photo by clicking on it. It will open in a different frame and at the bottom is the date of upload. Please insert the correct year into the permission line above.

I also manage many memorials outside of my family and am happy to transfer per the rules or make any changes and corrections. Please send your source along with corrections. I've had people try to "correct" information on my own relatives that I knew for a fact was wrong. So please try to supply your sources.

As for my personal genealogy research, I am Just traveling this very interesting road and uncovering the roots of ancestors who left few records in their wake. If I can help someone make that connection I am happy to do so!

Family names I am researching:
Kennedy, O'Hara, Donnelly, Kelly, Costello, Sexton, Groft, Murphy, Lyons, Clune, Stanners, Wallace, Hennessy, Bennett, Hayes, Flannery, Hughes, Melody, Reynolds, Karpanty, Szabska, and Dmuchowski.

Areas of known residence for these folks (besides Ireland and Poland): The Irish in Syracuse, Detroit, Harrisburg, PA, Colorado, Los Angeles and the Poles in New York, Bryant, TX, and Toledo, Ohio.

I am also researching Hiemstra, Krup, Krupp, Moyer, Kamyszek (Kamyshek) and associated families from the Netherlands, Poland, Pennsylvania and Michigan.

RE: Rev Benjamin Day
Regret I copied the wrong sources; those were for Stephen Day.

U.S. and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900 about Benjamin Day
Name: Benjamin Day
Gender: Male
Birth Place: CT
Birth Year: 1731
Spouse Name: Abigail Day
Marriage Year: 1752

Haven't found out yet when Benjamin's father, Daniel, moved to New Jersey from Long Island.

Appreciate your understanding and patience.

RE: Rev Benjamin Day
Thanks for your inquiry. I would appreciate knowing where I can find the obituary, and the findagrave number for the Benjamin you are referring to. The information I have, which I will double check, is derived from:
1850 United States Federal Census
1860 United States Federal Census
New Jersey, Deaths and Burials Index, 1798-1971
U.S., Sons of the American Revolution Membership Applications, 1889-1970
U.S., Sons of the American Revolution Membership Applications, 1889-1970

Hopefully, we can solve this.
Thanks again.

Archibald Gillie

Thank you for your concern about the possible mistaken cemetery identity, but there is a large possibility I may be correct as Archibald's wife, Rhoda Alice Fuller Gillie is buried in this cemetery and her page already has a photo of her headstone. The obituary I included on the memorial was from my home town's newspaper in New York State, so there reference to Pontiac may have been a broad assumption as the Gillies had lived in Pontiac. I believe there is a strong possibility he is buried near his wife, but I have no proof of that.

Thanks so much,
Ellen M. Herrmann

Hi - Thank you so much for taking the pictures for me. Yes, I have done considerable research on Adelia. They could make a movie about her. I have her lenghthy Civil War Pension File. She was actually married 4 times. The first husband died young. She married my relative, Hiram Whitman, and he died in the Civil War in 1863. She got his pension until she married Joe Alexander in 1865. He deserted her just a few months later and his cousin said he died in Germany. She tried to get her pension back but it was denied because she had no proof of the 3rd husband's death. In 1868, she married Daniel McCafferty but he turned out to be cruel and deserted her too. She was finally able to get her pension in 1910 but then died in 1914. Such a sad affair.

Since Adelia's sons are related to me, I was wondering if you would transfer them to me?

RE: Alive E Cornwell
I visited the grave and looked at it and taken a picture of it, but deleted the pic, so leave it as is.
