Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired firefighter and amateur photographer. I love exploring the back roads with my wife and am simply amazed at the number of old cemeteries we've found...cemeteries that would be missed in the blink of an eye. History, mystery, and intrigue...

I enjoy doing volunteer photos and do my best to fulfill requests, but it does take some time and effort; a simple 'thank you' goes a long way.

RE: Elm Grove Cemetery
Hi Ed,
I'm happy to take over management of these memorials if you want to transfer them to me.

RE: Elm Grove Cemetery
Hi Ed,
Yes, these are my people. Harvey and Sarah "Sally" (Eastman) Maxcy are my 3rd great-grandparents.

The family name is spelled various ways in historical and genealogical records, including Maxcy, Maxey, Maxie, Maxcey, Maxy, and a few other various. Over time, Maxcy seems to have survived as the most common spelling.

Also, the gravestone of Harvey's father, Benjamin Maxcy, uses this spelling, as do the gravestones of several of Harvey's children, including my 2nd great-grandfather Cyrus Maxcy. The Thomaston Village Cemetery written records also spell the name Maxcy for all three (Harvey, Sarah, and Josiah)

A suggestion: you could use Maxcy for Sarah and Josiah, and in the notes/descriptive section mention that the gravestone spelling is Maxey.

Hope this is helpful. If you have any other questions, please let me know. Also, I've put up a listing and photo for Cyrus Maxcy, so I will link it to Harvey (if I can).

Best regards,
Brian B.

Eagle Harbor Cemetery

I noticed that you took and posted some amazing photos from the Eagle Harbor Cemetery in Gaines, NY. They are very clear and readable for their age.

I am researching ancestors of mine who lived in Gaines from 1811 to 1834, before moving to central Michigan in 1834.

The headstone for Sabrina Allen (consort of Henry Allen), #94866797 -- did you happen to make note of or remember the headstones that were located adjacent to hers? I know it's a long shot, but I figured I'd ask.

Thanks so much for any help you might be able to provide.

Thanks Ed. I will review my information again to see if there is a reason for the date differences.

Thank you!
