Samuel Lindsley
Nikita, there is considerable confusion on Samuel. There are 2 Samuel Lindsley's for this birth/death and revolutionary war dates. This Samuel Marker is for the one who is from Essex County and died 18 Jun 1820. The other is my 4th ggrandfather who died in 1805 in Lindley, NY and he was from Morris County, NJ. Can you edit the bio of your Find A Grave marker for Samuel to remove the first several sentences including he marriage to Lois Bradley. Your Samuel married Phebe Williams. I do have proof of this if you want to discuss further. My email is: many thanks, Phil Cirullii

RE: Samuel Lindsley #6621716
There is a gravestone with the name "Samuel Lindsley" in the Colonel Lindsley Burying Ground (Lindley, Steuben County, NY. Samuel's Find A Grave Memorial# 50314155 has two photos of that gravestone, one a close-up where you can read the inscription. Painted Hills Genealogical Society's Burying Ground survey can be found here:
For Samuel, they have:
LINDSLEY, Samuel, Major , Spouse of Lois Bradley , Born 6 Sep 1760 , Died 1 May 1805 Revolutionary War Officer, s/o Lt. Col. Eleaser & Mary Miller

My final request was to copy and paste the following on #6621716 ...

Samuel Lindsley is buried in Col. Lindsley Burying Ground; Lindley, Steuben County, NY.

Thank you,
Buddy Leech

Mount Pleasant Cemetery
I am looking for a transcription of graves or someone who can do research at the cemetery. I have tried contacting the office to find if they keep records on burials. I believe most of the members of our family are buried there - Murdoch family. I have found some and they did live in Elizabethtown around 1820 -1840 and later. Thank you for any input you can give me. Janice

Wrong person- I am not doing anything with this family that requires a picture- I wrote you about the Skladar-Northcote families.

I see you contributed a picture of her headstone. Do you have any other information about her? Any children, etc.

RE: Unknown Child #8574737
Hi Nicki

I think I can see what has happened. The cupid image was originally downloaded and used by myself on my family tree, where it was used to denote the death of a child. There, someone else downloaded it into their own pictures file, as is permitted, from where I assume it was uploaded to the memorial page of an African American child. It seems that my email address was still attached to show from where it originated.

At least I assume this is what happened. I had not looked at the Find A Grave website for a long time, until I received your first email, and I have absolutely no idea how to upload my own picture onto the site!

With best wishes

RE: Unknown Child #8574737
Hi Nikita

Thank you for your recent message, which leaves me puzzled. I have not made any contribution to the memorial page of an unknown child, and have no idea how my email came to be connected with this.
How did you get the information that it came from me? I would be grateful if you could advise as I would not like to think my account has been compromised.

With kind regards.

RE: Jamie Riggle
Obviously SHE created a friends list, because your name is on it. That's where I got it from. Thanks anyway.

Nikita, are you in touch with Jamie Riggle at all? She is on your friends list and I am trying to reach her about one of her memorials. It is my GGG Grandfather. The email she has registered at Find A Grave isn't working and I am desperate to contact her.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Don Stout
Penelope Van Princis Stout #6082496
Hello, My name is Don Stout and Penelope was my 8th gr-grandmother. I saw your bio of her on findagrave and was wondering if you would mind sharing your source material for her. Your bio mentions that she was married first to John Kent and that her father was Baron Van Prinzen. There is so much conflicting information out there on her first husband and her maiden name, anything providing good sourcing for both of these would be very helpful to me and the many other Stouts descended from her. Thank you for any help you can provide. If you prefer you can contact me by email at

RE: Louis Benz #16917455
I understand completely why you wish to see a photo. I have submitted a request for a photo of his monument - there are several volunteers who visit the Post Cemetery to fulfill requests.

In the meantime you might be interested in the photos found at this website:

I see what you mean. I will detach Elizabeth from John Francisco.

RE: John Francisco #7054896
Thank you for your reply, however, I don't understand how you can honor a veteran if this John Francisco died prior to the war. I did not add the spouse and child. That is how I connected this John Francisco who would have died prior to the Revolutionary War.

RE: Joseph Tuttle #6082178
Thanks for correcting the Joseph Tuttle page. The Tuttles can be a confusing family as there are so many of them with the same names. There are several other listings where people are linked incorrectly. The other Joseph Tuttle page lists Joanna as his wife but she was really the wife of Joseph Jr. I'm trying work my through to get things straightened out...

My main source of reference is The Founders and Builders of the Oranges, 1666-1896. The main families I am reseaching are Harrison and Williams' families so when you get an edit from me, it is referenced.

RE: Photo requests
Thanks Nikita. I don't know the name of the website, but I would like to see it. Capt. Thomas Williams was our Thomas' uncle. As a matter of fact, my daughter is joining the DAR under his name. We were at this churchyard in 1995 and found our Thomas's wife, but not him so the stone has been missing at least that long. We even found his parents there. I wanted to mention that I do have documentation for several of the edits I sent, but I'd have to get it out again to tell you which book. Thank you so much for your assistance.

Photo Requests
Nikita, I have 5 requests for First Presbyterian, but I suspect there probably are no headstones. There are 4 Williams & 1 Dodd. Do you think you could take a look at them & let me know? Thank you.

Clarence Derwent - Walter Max Marx
Hi Nikita, I'm still pursuing the relationship between Clarence and my late cousin Walter Marx. I last posted here in April 2014.

At any rate, I'm wondering if you'd consider adding to Derwents bio something like the following .... born London as Harold Stanley David Wolff to a family of diamond merchants .... I found his birthday registration indexed, now to get a certificate, if available.

Kind regards,
