Please feel free to use my photos for your personal genealogy endeavors.

Consort and relic refer to a spouse, usually to women. A consort is a husband or wife of a living spouse. A relic is a widow.

Latin abbreviation: H.S.E.
hic situs est (here lies)

Latin abbreviation: H R
Hic Requiescit (here rests)

Latin abbreviation: AEC
Anno Emmanuelis Christi (In Christ Emmanuel)

Latin abbreviation: IHS"
Iesus Hominum Salvator (Jesus, Saviour of men)

"INRI" is an abbreviation for the Latin "Iesus Nazarenus, Rex Iudaeorum" ("Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews")

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.

You may post this article on the memorial I found when researching in the newspaper. This is not my family I was just researching my lines.

Thank you - hope this helps others. Mary

Article from the Abilene Daily Reflector, Abilene, Kansas, 11 June 1888 reads...

SHOCKING ACCIDENT

Atchison, Kansas, June 11 - T. A. Dayson, a Central Branch freight conductor, living at Greenleaf, was run over and killed at Concordia yesterday. He was acting in the capacity of brakeman and was in the act of stepping on the brake beam of the tender of the engine when his foot slipped. The wheels of the engine passed over him and his head was severed from his body.

Rena/Irene Blackwell and Blanche Carleton
Thank you for posting correcting and additional information about these two people in Green Hill. I have added the obituaries that you e-mailed. One question; what information or source convinced you that Blanche's mother's name was Irene instead of Rena? I have seen sources that list both of those names.

a little more info
Dear RabbitTrack, I don't know why I can't leave this mystery but it drives me bananas when people don't do adequate research.
The two Dennis children are Walter (b.1866) and Elizabeth (b.1868) Found their death certificates.
Father: Archibald Dennis, Mother: Mary Williams on both certificates. Elizabeth married Thomas Jefferson Alexander. No need to publish this info. I will send edits. Thanks, Lily

more info more questions
I took a better look at the marriage license of Mary Dennis and the "M" looks like a "W" for Williams. It still bothers me that I am looking at a Mary M. and a Mary E.
I must really leave this. Let me know if you have further info. Lily

was Mary his wife?
Yes! second marriage for both. Mary M. Williams married Archibald Dennis Jan.9,1865 and he died April 1,1870. In the 1880 census Mary is wife of John Henry Cremer (sic) occupation: Cooper and two Dennis children are listed as well as Amanda (most likely "Minnie") etc. 1880 census location is Orleans township, Orange County, Indiana.
John Henry Creamer had married Mary M. Dennis
Oct.2,1873 Wash.Co.,Ind.
Thanks for the obit info for Eleanor Adams and Robt. Pulliam. I added it. I had seen it on Ancestry. I don't have a subscription to Ancestry but use it at my local library.
Well, of course I couldn't find John Henry as you just added him yesterday.
I really must now get out of this rabbit hole and return to Daviess County. Thanks again. Lily

James R. Creamer and wife
Dear RabbitTrack, I have sent some edits for
James R. Creamer memorial#74771744 and
Margaret B. Creamer memorial#74771746
James married Margaret B. Gilbert on Oct.16,1894 in Lawrence Co., Indiana. My best research shows her to be Margaret B. Pulliam, daughter of William Pulliam and Elinor (Johnson) Pulliam, later Robinson, later Adams. I tried to link her to her mother but the system wouldn't let me. I did send an edit to link him to his mother; Elizabeth "Lizzie" (Lawyer) Creamer. His father was John Henry Creamer but I can't find him. His grandmother was Elizabeth Lawyer born about 1790 in New Jersey. Don't know if you know anyone who wants to know. Thanks a lot for your attention to the edits I sent. Lily

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.
