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.

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
Hi,
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.

RE: My mistake
None are related to me. Since I've already sent you the edits, I think all you have to do is approve them and the changes will become effective.

Just a couple of items - I found the YOUR Field-Howland Cemetery exactly as located on the map for it and the interments that were posted matched up nicely with the ones I found. However, your cemetery photo looks different from the cemetery photos I submitted tonight. Could your cemetery photo be of another cemetery?
Someone else also listed another cemetery as the HOWLAND Cemetery with a slightly different location. Some of the interments are the same as YOUR Field-Howland Cemetery but it also shows many more interments that I don't believe to be relevant to your cemetery; there are too many interments considering the small size of Field-Howland.
I uploaded my cemetery photos for the other cemetery before I realized there were 2 'conflicting' cemeteries; it appears that I cannot remove those photos. I have since uploaded my cemetery photos to your Field-Howland.
LONG story short, your Field-Howland seems to be the 'real deal' with accurate location & interments which matched up with what I found. Please feel free to approve the edits at your discretion.

Thank you,
Ed

Margaret Fallon was a daughter of Margaret ( who lived to 117 years)and Hugh Fallon. Margaret (the daughter) married Christopher Wheeler of Ireland and Lansing NY-then King Ferry. Their only child John Wheeler was my maternal Grandfather. Margaret Fallon and Christopher Wheeler are buried in an unmarked grave in the Lady Of the Lake Catholic Cemetery . I have a copy of the plot map showing the grave site.
