Bio and Links
Bio Photo After taking a cemetery tour in 2008, I decided to photograph and transcribe the graves of the Civil War soldiers buried at Pittsford Cemetery. That little project snowballed into an obsession to find any information I could about these hometown heroes.

Since that first tour, I have given many cemetery tours of my own, and I continue to be amazed at the interesting people who lived in my own town and who now permanently reside in the Pittsford Cemetery and the Pioneer Burying Ground.

The majority of the graves I list on Find A Grave are people who reside in my neighborhood cemeteries. I have seen the graves and, in many cases, personally tend to them on a regular basis.

Find A Grave has been very helpful in my personal genealogy searches, as well as to my Civil War soldiers project. I look forward to assisting others with their searches as a contributor.

My blog, Illuminated History (www.IlluminatedHistory.com), details my Civil War soldiers project.

RE: Henrietta Puth Dill
Hi, my father in law told,me a touching anecdote about her. Apparently Henrietta was dying of the cancer and wanted to be married, so Charles Dill did, shortly before she died. Now, that's a gentleman.

Emma Alverson Photo
Hello Vicki,

I owe you an apology. I couldn't figure out how you answered my photo request, but there wasn't a picture and finally tonight, I figured out that I had put the request in on the wrong Emma Alverson. The person I thought I requested was Emma Pegelow Alverson, but I put the request on Emma C. Alverson, which you very nicely took a lovely photo for and I didn't find until tonight.

I'm so sorry, you must have thought I was rude, and I should have asked earlier which would have been a much better choice. I'm very sorry and didn't intend to be rude, I was just confused.

Thanks for all you've done along the way.

Sincerely,
Ellen M. Herrmann

RE: Dill Family of Pittsford
Hi Vicki,
Thank you so much for your response. I am actually in Rochester for a few days and have been to Holy Sepulchre yesterday. That John Dill is a son. I found some info from my in laws that John Dill, Sr. may be at White Haven. I hope to check it out.
Appreciate your help.

Dill family at Pittsford Cemetery
Hi,
I saw that you had photographed some gravestones for a Dill family in Pittsford Cemetery. It was a George, wife Elsie and baby daughter Esther. I was told that there was also a John Dill and Henrietta Dill (his daughter in law). Do you know if they are in this cemetery?
Sincerely,

Janet Dill
