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, click on Edit Plot.
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 - for the longitude, otherwise the person will be buried in China.
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.

|Ferber||Elias M Alter|
BEDFORD WEEKLY MAIL
FRIDAY, JUNE 8, 1900
"Our Postmaster, E. M. Alter, of Medora, died last Monday, may 28th, with heart failure. The funeral was conducted by the Masons; burial at Heightshill on Wednesday."
I can't find a reference to Heightshill Cemetery, but there is a Heighton Hill Cemetery in Medora. However, their listing does not include Elias.
Mrs. Perry McBride is Gertrude (Gertie) Barton McBride, the sister of Dell Lee Barton and the daughter of Charles Lee Barton and Mary Elisabeth Alter Barton. According to my information she was also buried in Mitchell, but I didn't see her stone.

Thanks for the notice about Ambrose. I also fixed the regiment #. Another contributor transferred him to me and I didn't catch that error. :-(

|Dan G.||Infant Daggy|
This is an on-going project. I think the Daggy's are buried in Green Hill, but they were members of the Leatherwood Christian Church on Leatherwood Road.
All the best, D.
