RE: H C Long - Virginia
I'm glad you liked the mirror technique. (Really, manipulating light is photography 101.) But no brace, I use an unattached 1" dowel with a rubber chair-foot on one end, to prop it up at whatever angle that's needed. Since you mentioned that, I added more to the text.

Rush and Bustard Ancestors
I am searching for records on both maternal and paternal family. Paternal is Rush. I have found that James Henry Rush was born in Ulster, Tyrone, Northern Ireland in 1798. He left and went to New Brunswick, Canada. His father, I believe is also James Rush dob about 1765(?) in Castlederg, Tyrone, Northern Ireland.

George Bustard was born 1817 in Clarcam, Donegal, Northern Ireland. His father I believe is also George Bustard.

My trail runs cold after this. If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you!

RE: Joseph H Palmer d. 1847
Thank you Diane. The Betsey Simpson who died 1867 was only 7 years old. Most of the tree owners I have contacted at ancestry (including Caldwell/Walton) have just copied other family trees. Betsey Palmer remarried after Joseph's death so she wasn't Betsey Palmer when she died. Virginia

RE: Joseph H Palmer d. 1847
Hi Diane,

In January you were checking into the information from Northern NY Tombstone Transcription Project that the wife of Joseph Palmer was B D Palmer. I wasn't disagreeing with the information. In fact, if it is correct, "B.D." could stand for Betsey Dolloff which Is what I'm hoping for. regards, Virginia

Hi Diane,

As far as I know Roland McClure is still amongst the living. Not sure what the best answer is. Maybe merge? I know if I send him edits or requests they don't get dealt with until Find A Grave does it. (we have had issues)

Massey Cemetery memorials/photos
Greetings Diane,

I filled a photo request for Massey Cemetery the other day. When the person sent me a thank you and request to use them on Ancestry I had to do a search for the last name to remember where I had filled that for.
The last name was Skeele.
After a bit of a panic because I saw only your memorials with photos. I thought I had lost my mind. I knew I had spent much time loading photos for all of them. (there were no photos when I started).
It took doing a search with just "sk" to realize what the issue was.

Roland McClure added Skeels names in 2008. (that was the link my requester used)
Your memorials with the correct spelling were added in 2012 with photos.

Not sure what you want to do with this info. but I thought I would share it with you.

Thanks for your reply.
I don't have this couple in my DB. I taught you might be related.
