RE: Mary Newkirk
Hi, Doug!

I was inquiring specifically about the Mary Newkirk you requested a photo of in the East Norwalk Historical Cemetery. I took photos of the other Newkirks there, and, while I didn't see a Mary Newkirk, there was a Mary Kip buried in the same line. I did some digging, and found a Kip in New York whose will mentions Garrit Newkirk. May be no connection, but it has me curious!

Here's the will:

Page 350. (Written in Dutch language.)--In de Name Godes, Amen. I, HENDRICK KIP, of Fishkill, in Duchess County, December 12, 1751. I leave to my wife Jacomintie all estate during her widowhood. If she marries she shall have 100. I leave to the son of my eldest brother Frederick 5 for his birth right. To Mathew Sledt, my oldest sister's son, 100. To Cornelius, the eldest son of Garrit Newkirk, 100. I leave to my cousin Cornelius Newkirk, son of Jan Newkirk, all my real estate after the death of my wife. I make my friend, Jacob Du Bois, and Theodorus Cornelius Van Wyck, executors.

Mary Newkirk
Do you have any information about her, perhaps her maiden name? I ask because the headstone grouped with Garrit, Amelia, and John Newkirk is for a "Mary Kip."

Hi! Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker? Please post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

Forest Home is a huge cemetery with well over 70,000 burials, and the information is needed in order to find someone there. I go here regularly, and since August I have found over 150 graves at Forest Home that had the location information provided. Thank you! Ace

Blain Union Cemetery
I noticed your request for the Blain Union Cemetery in Perry County, PA. I visited on Saturday and tried to fulfill your request but could not. The reason so many stay unfulfilled in that region, I suppose, is because so many in that region have no up keep and a great deal of exposure. As such, they are nearly impossible to read at this point. I'm sorry if I was unable to fulfill your request. I am, however, trying to track down someone who may have a map of interment and would be willing to share without a fee.

RE: Info
Well that's interesting. Fun facts like that are one of the reasons people like geneology!

RE: Sylvester E.
You're welcome! I'm still working on the other Eppley's. Have to talk to the cemetery office about them to figure out where they are.

RE: Big Thanks
You're welcome. No, I don't really know anything about my "tree" as I don't do genealogy, but my family consists of Cochrans, Barbers and Owens. (That I know of.) No Eppley's at all.

RE: Agnes Black Eppley
Hi Doug, I'm going to be doing this next weekend, the 7th or so. If you want to send the entire list by then, I can see what I can do about getting it all filled at once. Thanks!
