Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in the Ithaca area. Most of my family and several generations were from Cayuga County, New York. I do enjoy walking the cemeteries and taking photos of the headstones. 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 am going to be buried I knew people who are buried there and I know people who will be buried there. I will be among family and friends and we have shared memories and time together. Did my ancestors too? Too soon people are forgotten and what a wonderful way to memorialize them and share their lives.

Change memorial management please
Dear Cheryl,
Could I please take over management of memorial 136129564 for Mary Ostrander. Her parents were my direct ancestry and would please like to add that info to her memorial.

Find A Grave #47002629

I tried to do this in the 'edit' but the option for changing management was not listed.

Thank-you for your time.

RE: Elizabeth Noyes Peake
Hi, Cheryl,

Greetings from Long Island from a long retired teacher. Please do not apologize for the error among all the accurate information. I would never have known where she was buried if you hadn't posted the information that you had. It was easy for that mistake to occur that Elizabeth Noyes Peake was the wife of William Woodhouse Peake instead of his sister. There is no need to transfer the grave to me.

The Peakes in this graveyard were somewhat distant relatives. One of my great grandmothers was Helen Peake (1829 to 1891) of Hudson, New York who married in 1864 at Hudson, New York Joseph Steevens Farrand as his second wife.

Thank you for all the effort and care you put into doing the work that you do.


Mrs. Barbara Ann (Farrand) Doxey

Helen L Gunn
Helen L Gunn is my Grandmother. There seems to be a mistake as the cemetery is correct however, the photo is not. My Grandmother is resting beside her husband, Benjamin Gunn. When you enter the cemetery, take a right and follow the fence line. Their headstone is probably 30 feet past the end of the road. Thank you.

RE: Henry Gunn
I believe it was the 1860 census, if I remember correctly! So glad you are out of the cold and snow!

Henry Gunn
Cheryl, Just wondering if you have any pictures of Henry Gunn or his grave marker. He is listed as Henry J. Gunn and as Henry H. Gunn in different places. Once again winter is here. Hope you are well! Jeanette

Sarah Butts
Hi - I located the grave marker for Sarah Butts
it has weathered to the point the name does not show in the photo ( if you are there and run your fingers over the letters you can feel it out)
maybe someone with more camera skills could bring it out - dates seems to be 8/12/192 - 9/26/1944 (can't be sure of that)
seems to be a connection to the name "Hubbell" associated with the marker.

Elvira Patterson # 105415595
I sent you an edit earlier for Zina (Zenas) and Elizabeth (Betsey) Ball Hinkley (various spellings). I wonder if Elvira Patterson is their daughter Alvira who was born in 1804. I don't see her husband anywhere. I believe Alvira Patterson b. 1836 who is with the Hinkleys in 1850 is Elvira's daughter and perhaps Elvira died after the birth. All speculation but I wondered if you had any ideas.
Thank you for your work on findagrave.
