I typically do not put in calculated birth dates from the Aged information on a gravestone. Those dates tend to be incorrect.
I need help with St. Michaels's cemetery, East Elmhurst, Queens county, New York.

latitude and longitude
To add latitude and longitude for a FindAGrave memorial, click on Edit Plot.
If you place the latitude and longitude in the URL of a browser, the browser will take you to that location. For example, copy and paste the following into the URL of a browser (include the comma and the space: 38.7338, -86.48588
If you download Google Earth (it is free software) and put in the search box the latitude and longitude (for example 38.7338, -86.48588), it will take you to the grave area.
I use Google Earth to find the latitude and longitude. I type in the latitude and longitude for the graveyard and then adjust the numbers until the pointer is on the gravestone.
Under Tools, Options, 3D View
- Decimal Degrees
Under Tools, Options, Navigation
- Do not automatically tilt while zooming
If you leave a space before the values, an error message, "values are not the correct format", will be returned.
Be sure to include the dash "-" for the longitude, otherwise the person will be buried in China.

Oops. To quick on the trigger.
The gravestone, zoomed in looks like BORN 1846. I do intend on getting out there when it snows and taking another look with a snow rub.
Thank you again as always. D.

Thanks... I just realized none of his siblings have records... that is why I can't link... more work to do! Thanks again!

I added my grandfather James Foley Herslow Find A Grave Memorial# 171298172. He is the son of Esther # 138258198 and Martin #138258154. How do I link him to his siblings?
|Robert Lane||Many Thanks for the Information|
Just wanted to express my gratitude for the Hickman information you emailed to me. I didn't have any of it, and really enjoyed reading it.
Not everyone would take the time to be as helpful as you were, and I appreciate it.
I was wondering if I could have my 2nd great grandmothers grave site to take care of 91994479 Matilda Louisa Hargrove Kenyon
Thank You 47715442

I understand the dilemma after your expansion. If the bodies may have not been moved with the headstones the new memorial would be recorded as a possible"cenotaph" and you could have both on Find A Grave. I am not the Find A Grave police. To me it just looked like a new duplicate.
I would list yours as a "possible cenotaph only" writing the explanation that the bodies may still reside on on the old Kutch Family Farm as the earlier memorial suggest. With only the memorials to go by, I think you are correct in having two. The only explanation I aslo have, is that the tombstones were just leaning against the barn wall and it would suggest the bodies remain on the farm, and that some very degenerate person has desecrated a family grave. This in fact may be crime that needs to be addressed and reported.
Thank you for caring for our deceased . God Bless.

You are so very welcome! I've actually been looking for that one for you for quite some time! The cemetery doesn't have an office or anyone to ask so I take a few hours when I'm out that way to just wander around and hopefully spot them. When I finally spotted it, I was thrilled, needless to say. Glad I could help. :)
