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.)

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.

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.

Stafford Cemetery - Chenango County NY
I searched the entire cemetery and could not find any of your requests. The cemetery is abandoned; most of the markers are toppled over, broken, partially buried and mostly illegible.

RE: Bixby Cemetery
Thank you for the information.

BTW, I just located this:

So glad you found her!!!! I will never be able to find the grave of my Samuel Bixby who was in the Revolutionary war. The headstones were all removed and leaned against a barn because a women who bought the farm didn't like looking at them while she ate breakfast. The Farmers Museum in Cooperstown bought the headstones and now they are in their museum :( The graves are in Bainbridge, New York and were burials of the Vermont Sufferers and important point in New York history

Bixby Cemetery
I live near West Bainbridge and have been a Find A Grave volunteer for less than a year.

I see that in the past you posted photographs from the Bixby Cemetery.

In my internet search I found the following

Located on the East Side of Bainbridge, NY
On Land now known as the Sipple Farm
*This cemetery no longer exists, the stones have been removed, but the bodies remain

Also from Google Earth I see no sign of this cemetery.

Is it true that all of the stones have been removed? Currently there are 2 Find A Grave photo requests for this cemetery.

Very interesting, what you do. I too love history. Mostly I look up my own family but I am also interested in people that may have lived in an old house or left some contribution of some kind that is still tangible today.
Thank you for posting the information on my grandfather.
