Bio Photo Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiselled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Obituary
I do not have a supply of obituaries. I do look ups for my memorials and anyone interested in them. Infants and babies usually do not have obituaries and unless I have the names of the parents, it becomes difficult to look for one. I did try however.

Oosterhouts
AW, I have spent hundreds of hours doing research on the Oosterhouts in the records at this point. If you're going to "claim" the memorials for people with so many other descendants, you should be willing to put some time and effort into doing research yourself, or pass the memorials on to others who will. I created memorials for Jan Sr. and Annetje Jellis at the Kingston Old Dutch Church. You can read their bios there and see why I did that (not Saugerties), and an example of what I'm talking about.

RE: Ingram's in Provident Cemetery
Yes, I would love some more information about the Ingram so an e-mail would be great. That is the correct address.

And yes, it is Catherine Moralee, the older sister to the young man who is buried in Provident Cemetery. Their oldest sister, Margaret Beavan Moralee, is my direct ancestor.

Thanks again,

Barry

RE: Ingram's in Provident Cemetery
Hi There AW,

I am happy to have you use whatever photos you like, no credit necessary. I was visiting from Seattle on a blazing hot August day so the pictures suffered from excessively bright sunlight. One of my relative is buried in that cemetery, William Henry Moralee, which I had searched for a long time before finding it. He was a kid of 16 who joined the Union Army, was sick most of the time and finally died of disease at the military hospital at Keokuk, Iowa. His family had a farm nearby. The cemetery is not in very good shape: not much maintenance. Gravestones are toppled, broken, missing, eroded beyond recognition, covered over by encroaching grass and weeds. The Moralee grave suffered from many of these ailments. It was great to uncover it and give it some tending.

I looked at the Ingram grave on Findagrave and it rang a bell. I have an Ingram in my family, too. Actually, I think that John J. Ingram in Provident Cemetery is a half-brother (possibly full brother) to the relative in my family, Thomas Ingram, b. 1840, Findagrave Number 57369923.

I have a note that Thomas' mother was Elizabeth Jennings and then there was a new Elizabeth, Elizabeth Eliza Emily Richards Kneebone, taken as a wife and this Elizabeth was the mother to the other children.

This is confusing to me: I wonder if I have this right? My notes say that Elizabeth Jennings lived until 1896 and that the second one lived until 1935.

Can you, by chance, shed any light on this?

Thanks so much in advance,

Barry Foster

RE: Margaret Howden
Thank you for the kind offer, but they are inlaws, not relatives, so no need to transfer them, but thanks again.

Margaret Howden
Hi Andrea, Yes, that is the same Margaret Jaycox Howden wife of John Howden. I know tombstone DOB's sometimes conflict with other info, but I have changed her year of birth to 1883 to conform with the tombstone and linked her to her husband. If you happen to run across my uncle and aunt Ralpg and Elizabeth Howden Bontempo in the same cemetery, that would be great.
