Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the proud owner of One Stone at a Time who specializes in gravestone cleaning, straightening, and restoration of historic gravestones in and around New York State. If you have a stone that you would like cleaned, restored, or straightened send me an email and I will give you an estimate. I am fully trained and certified in working with historic gravestones.

I am a local history maniac, who has a hobby (some may call it an obsession) of finding and visiting old cemeteries, especially small, rural plots. If I have a memorial of someone that is in your family or very close to you, I would be more than happy to transfer it to you. Also, if you have any extra information for any memorial I have, please feel free to send me an email. I will update the memorial very quickly. (I secretly love getting added information or corrections to the memorials I upload.)

Evergreen cemetery, in White Store
Hey Kurt, you had a photo request for a Lana P. Adams, i found two duplicates in that cemetery under the name Selanah Patrick Wright Adams. I assume this is the same person as your Lana P. Adams. thought you might want to check it out. -- Wendy

RE: Ruth Ferguson
Gasp! How awful! They may have been well-intentioned but what they did amounts to straight-up vandalism.

Regards,
Pat

RE: Ruth Ferguson
Thanks Kurt! I could give you a long list of the mistakes I've made...

Ruth's husband John is buried there too, so she's probably in the same plot. But since she died seven years after him it's possible she doesn't have a gravestone.

Regards,
Pat

Ruth Ferguson
Dear Kurt,

Will you please remove the photograph from Memorial #107012872? The name on the stone ends in "ing" so it is clearly not Ruth Ferguson's grave.

Regards,
Pat Reed

Re: Daniel Fairchild
Kurt, thank you for the additional information which I have added to his memorial. Please let me know if you would like any transfers - I wasn't sure if he was related to you. Thanks again! Kim

New Shavertown Cemetary
Critical Need!! Kurt Riegal, I am praying that you see this within minutes, or hours. We have several of our ancesters who were interred apparently in Shavertown Cemetary. It appears that there is now a new Shavertown Cemetary and can't seem to find out how to contact them. I have family who are in the area from the west coast very briefly and I'm trying to get the info to them.

Also is it likely, or not, that those moved from the Old Shavertown were relocated to the New Shavertown and is it in PA or NY? Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated

Thanks you so much

Daniel W. Dennis
Hi Kurt,
I am looking for the grave site of my great grand father who drowned in the Black River while working on a bridge.
His body was not found for 3 mod. and I can not find where his remains were buried. He lived near Springfield MA. I doubt if my great grand mother Mary W. Dennis had the money to send his remains back to MA. Can you give me any hints as to where I might find the burial records for this Daniel W. Dennis that you have on findagrave? Thank you so much for your help.

The Daniel I am looking for was born bat. 1848 in New Hampshire and died Jan 7, 1892 in the Black River. Body not found until March 26, 1892. His wife was Mary W. Sutton Dennis.
Daniel was in the Civil War so he would have a veteran tomb stone.
Sincerely,
Sue May

RE: Stafford Cemetery - Chenango County NY
My pleasure Kurt! At first glance I didn't realize that I actually did have one you were looking for; glad I could fulfill one of your requests.

I photographed everything I could find there, reviewed them at home, and uploaded anything that I could match up with the recorded names. The cemetery is in very bad condition as evidenced by my photos. I do have a few more photos that may be some of the names you requested but they are illegible.

Ed
