|Katherine (Kathi) White||RE: Schweigerts - Erie County|
You're very welcome. I felt bad about the faint spot. It appears it could be water run-off damage? Thank you for the kind words. Makes this "hobby" all the more worthwhile. Glad I could help! Kathi
|Joyce Niswander||RE: Sarah Hewett|
You're welcome, JK. Sarah's page needed a beauty lift. I hope you find the one you are looking for. Blessings to you.
|Katherine (Kathi) White||Schweigert photo request|
I wanted to let you know that the photo's I uploaded for the Schweigert requests have faint spots in the center of the monument. I don't what caused it but it's permanent not the photography or sunlight. Kathi

I have direct ancestor line to Samuel Hewitt through son Alden Hewitt. I noticed that find a grave has updated these graves. Recently, the will of Samuel was obtained and added to my tree on ancestry by me. Alden had been of unknown parentage until then for my family. Samuel Hewitt was married twice with first wife Mary mother of all kids except Samuel Jr and Abigail Jr. whose mother was Abigail Parker. The Way family believes that Samuel m. Abigail Way (b. 1776 LENOX, MA - d. Jay, Essex, NY) dau. of Josiah Way(b.1742 CT - d. 1812 NY). This if true means that Mary is Abigail Way. Do you have an opinion on this? Josiah W. Hewitt may be named after Josiah Way. I am researching this family of Hewitts. I want to prove connections back to Stonington, CT. Have tree on ancestry with dna attached. Dna hits to Capt. Benjamin Hewitt and Marie Fanning. Propose Samuel to be son of Joseph Hewitt and Sarah Babcock. Could we share info ? Thanks. katyZKLBW@gmail.com
As an update on the two Backus infants, I have found in a survey of surviving legible gravestones (http://mcnygenealogy.com/cem/mthope-sec-m.htm), the one for their mother...which was transcribed as reading something like "Mary Ann / wife of Orrin Backus / died Nov 19, 1870 / aged 42 years 7 months".
She, and both infants, were all listed in the interment records as being buried in Lot 8 of Section W...but the plot map of that lot shows no sign of them...and the gravestone for her was found in a completely different location, Section M, in that survey.
Unfortunately, finding her gravestone to photograph (and to check the plot map for other family) either by looking throuhg the plot maps or going out into the field would be very tedious because M is a big section. (Plot maps are available here: http://crpc.nyrgs.org/ if you want to look through Section M for it.)
But, hopefully, this information will help you decide how relevant these people are to you.
|Joel Shore||Re: Photo requests for Backus's at Mt Hope|
I've been investigating these three people but am not optimistic about being able to find gravestones for any of them. However, I thought it might be useful to you to have more information about them from the Mt Hope Interment Records.
The two memorials labeled just with the last name "Backus" (1859 and 1860) were both created from entries in the Mt Hope interment records (http://www.lib.rochester.edu/IN/RBSCP/Databases/IMAGES/MtHope/disc1/00000013.pdf) that read "Orrin [or Oren] Backus' child". One died at 4 days old and the other was stillborn.
Edward Backus (1890) died of pneumonia at the age of 56 (http://www.lib.rochester.edu/IN/RBSCP/Databases/IMAGES/MtHope/disc1/00000803.pdf).
|Chuck Metcalfe||RE: Jesse Case memorial photo|
No problem, like to see families connected on here. I guess I took credit where if wasn't due, I took a picture of Mary Wheelock's, but someone else had already posted one. I did ask Nathan to link her to her husbands though.
|Gemeniguy||RE: Norman Torrance marker photo|
Glad to be of assistance. This was my first trip to Norton Cemetery. The cemetery is divided into partitions separated by either paved or dirt roads. I only had time to look in the partition where the older gravestones were located. Found about 8 requests and the gravestone and footstones of one of my wife's great-great grandparents. Will go back someday and try to fulfill some of the requests in the other partitions.
|Chuck Metcalfe||RE: Jesse Case memorial photo|
You are very welcome, happy to help. I have also added photographs to his wifes' memorials, and request a links, Emily (Hubbard) Case, Memorial# 15739847 and Mary C. (Hubbard) Wheeler, Memorial# 15742002.
Also buried on the same lot is Frank Case Memorial# 15739849, who is the son of Emily & Jesse. I've added pictures to his memorial as well.
I have also requested that Nathan link Jesse to his parents (your memorials), and his other son Fred Worden Case, and daughter Eva (Case) Brown (formerly Wright).
Thanks for the corrections. These are details that "Old Gravestones of Ulster County" could never have known! You time spent reviewing these memorials is appreciated; especially since this is one of the oldest and most historic graveyards in the country (As are most of those in Ulster County, NY).
