RE: John Townsend Photo - Nunda
Unfortunately I don't recall the source of the John Townsend photo, likely a old atlas / history book. But I am sure there is no copyright remaining on the photo... Best Regards

Burgess memorial
Thanks for the great photo for Abraham and Sarah (Morton) Burgess, our g-g-g-grandparents!
I see that
daughter Louisa B. 1838-1885 #55223817 and
granddaughter Edith 1857-1864 #55223822
are also buried there, and they both have Find-a-grave records.
Could you attach the same photo to their records, please?
If you want, I'll submit a request for both of them.
I will ask the record-keeper to link the records.
Again, thanks!

Thank you!
Thanks so much for the lovely photo of Ella Redner Brace's memorial. Since she shares it with her husband, I just did a photo request for him too. You should be able to fulfill that one very easily. :-)

RE: Ottmar Uebel gravemarker
Thanks again, Tom. Yes, I would like the photo of his wife Nellie's gravemarker as well. I'll create a memorial for her this evening.

My great-uncle Ottmar was a tailor by trade and worked with his father August and brother Oscar in Rochester. He also later worked for Hickey Freeman. An interesting note about his burial location -- he gave up his space in the Uebel family plot at Mt. Hope in Rochester, preferring to be buried with his wife's family in Nunda. I believe there was something of a rift in the family because Uncle Ottmar converted to Catholicism after he married his wife Nellie.
