Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Tompkins County, NY. Most of my family and several generations were from Cayuga County, NY. I do enjoy walking the cemeteries and taking photos of the headstones to share. When I walk a cemetery where my relatives are buried and see the other headstones, I can only wonder if they knew my ancestors. Perhaps they held their hand during a difficult time or bought them chicken soup when they were ill - I can only imagine. I know where I will be buried and I knew people who are buried there and I know people who will be buried there and am comforted that I will be among many family and friends who have been a part of my life. Now I wonder, did my ancestors know others buried near them too? In regards to Find a Grave - to soon people are forgotten and what a wonderful way to memorialize them and share their lives.

I see that you posted a memorial for Harrison who died in 1900. However, I have his DC and it says he is buried in The Evergreens Cemetery in Brooklyn. Do you have further information to confirm that he in Cayuga County? Thanks, Ellen

Hi Cheryl, Just letting you know that all of us doing family history love that you have these memorials online for us to access. I know it is a lot of work and it is greatly appreciated. My family is the Seeley (Seely, etc) clan.

RE: Mary E Dorcett
Thanks for your quick response. I understand what you mean and I know, with Mom's age a lot of people [except her] think her time is probably close to "being UP". Thanks for your time and interest in the Find A Grave project. I know it has been helpful to me when checking records on my family while doing Genealogy. Have a pleasant day and again thanks. Jo Doucett Belodeau.

RE: Relationships
Thanks for your note. No, I'm not a relative-- just trying to add info where I can. If these are folks of yours, and I manage any of the memorials, please request a transfer and I'll be happy for transfer.

RE: Deleting Memorials
That does explain it some..just scared me that you did not confur with the other person, I just saw it and let you know it was a dupe, I didn't ask you to delete.
I think yours may have had more info and detail.
When on Find A Grave and I find a dupe, i just report it, thinking the two will communicate, I never intend as automatic deletation which you led me to believe.
Oh well,

RE: Deleting Memorials
Cheryl you should check before deleting as you are managing the memorial not me. I just ran across it and found it as a dupe.
