Bio Photo As a newcomer to, I have found it very interesting and what a great way to remember loved ones. Look forward to memorializing as many of my relatives as I can.

It's kinda sad to walk through the cemeteries and see so many headstones with little or no inscription left, or the headstones have fallen over, are broken or completely gone. We need to record as much information as possible before it's gone forever.

I don't have a problem with you using any of the photos I take and post to your memorials for your other family history projects, just ask. If your going to use them for profit, then there is a problem.

It's amazing how a few people say that it's not about the number game when asked to have your relatives transfered to you and they refuse. If it's not so, then why don't they honor your request? I understood it's about helping others with their family history, but apparently that's no so !!!

When entering memorials, please check for correct dates and spelling of names to avoid creating duplicates...

Don't think of them as gone away
their journey's just begun
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one

Just think of them as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days or years

Think of how they must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away

And think of them as living
in the hearts of those they touched
for nothing loved is ever lost
and they were loved so much !!!!

RE: Andrew Miller
Andrew(1731-1803) was my 5th great grand father. My line is Henry, Cornelius, Leander Sr, and Leander Jr. and Irvin Sr. Are we related or just interested in geology? Irv Miller

Kayner family in Hoyer Hill Cem., Herkimer, NY
I photographed all of Hoyer Hill Cemetery in 2015. I did not find any "Kayner" memorials. The 2 Kayners that you have shown photos for are actually entered at Highland Cemetery, Jordanville, NY, in a family plot. They may have been re-entered there from Hoyer Hill. However the major question I have, is related to a message you sent to Lorraine Bell about a 2nd Hoyer Hill (where you actually photographed your Kaynor name plate). "Hoyer Hill" historical cemetery is located at the end of Henderson Rd, off Hicks Rd and East of Rte 167, on top of Hoyer Hill. It is a well maintained cemetery. Yours sounds like one that may have been forgotten. If so, I would like to find it, so it can be documented in the historical records of the county. I am trying to photograph and document all of the older cemeteries in Herkimer Co. I live in Mohawk, NY. Please contact me directly at Happy memorial quest, Chuck Gay

These cemeteries are confusing to say the least. Will you add the following information to his gravesite in the correct cemetery I have posted a photo and it appears that his wife is deceased too, so you can use the photo for her new page too. I have deleted them from the incorrect cemetery.

Birth: Dec. 31, 1926
Dubuque County
Iowa, USA
Death: Aug. 16, 2015
Cedar Rapids
Linn County

RE: Photos
I am guessing that you are referring to when you have added a perfectly good picture of a tombstone, only to have someone else post a duplicate photo of the same quality to the memorial. If this is what you mean, then yes - isn't it lovely when they do that. I seem to have that problem quite often. I especially find it annoying when it's a relative's memorial and I have other pictures that I would like to add, but then don't have room because of their duplicate picture. And yet some of those members don't see this as inflating their numbers... go figure.

Thank you so much for the tombstone photo. Paul Crim and Magdalena Lana Steele are my 6x great grandparents, and their daughter Maria Catherina Crim Casler is my line. Adam would be a 5x great uncle. I greatly appreciate your taking the time to photograph tombstones before they are lost forever.

I see the pictures on Crim cemetery, were those today? I'm kinda new at this and can't figure out which are some of the newer ones. If you have a memorial number that goes along with the pic. that would be great. It would be awesome if it has some clues to some of the long lost records I have. Great pics of the Crim's BTW-it's hard to get up there if they're haying (and I would never go there alone!)

RE: Hoyer
Hoyer is awesome so I think you're thinking of the cemetery by my parent's land. That cemetery was maintained by my cousin until he had a massive stroke and could no longer upkeep it. My cousin and wife sold their farm so now I think it is probably in worse shape than ever. The DAR was going to try to save the remaining stones, sadly most are in the ground covered with earth or moved to the stone wall - so no telling which plot they belonged to. Thank God for LDS research, they have a lot of names of those buried there. It's know as the Jeremiah Marshall Farm Cemetery- but who knows how long since the Marshall's lived there. They haven't been around in the 100 years that my family owned that particular part of the farm acreage.
