memorial #178813131
I hope you live in the Auburn, NY area. If not perhaps you know a volunteer nearby who can take a photo of a gravestone in Lakeview Cemetery, Town of Fleming, Auburn, NY.
Gary E. Thomas memorial # 178813131.
LOT#121, SECTION # 1, GRAVE# 1. If you would, please email the photo and I'll insert it into his memorial I created.
The Fleming Town Clerk emailed me this info...the deceased is the son of a very old friend.
I am in North Carolina.
Thanks so much.

First Presbyterian Cmty., Orange, NJ
Nikita, I was talking to new photographer for that cemetery & this is what she said:
I was late in reading about the new owners of the First Presbyterian Church and how they thought they might move the stones for a parking lot (I beleive there was enough outrage that that is not happening now). I do have a lot of photos with the white flag markers, the new owners had a sonar/radar company come in a mark all the areas in which there are actually remains below the stones too.

Had you heard about this? My DAR said they could not find a contact for the Orange Mountain DAR so we could ask about it. Do you know any society that might be able to clarify info on this? It must be on the Register for Historical Places.

Memorial #8273013
Hi Nikita,
I can't imagine the complexity of all the Memorial pages you have created. Here is my problem, and I hope you can help.
Ezra L'Hommedieu had (2) Wives:
#1: Charity Floyd (Memorial #8273004). He married
her (12/24/1765) in Brookhaven, Suffolk
County, New York.
#2: Mary Catherine Havens (Memorial #113055914).
He married her (6/15/1803) in Queens,
Queens County, New York. She is related to
I asked Find A Grave to add Mary Catherine Havens as Ezra's wife, but there was no menu choice to tell them she was his 2nd wife. So, they listed her as his 1st Wife, and spelled her middle name incorrectly. They do not seem to reply to e-mails,
so; I am sorry to bother you about this. I know you would want Ezra's bio to be correct, as I do. I thank you! Janet (Havens) Siegfried, Contributor.

Zebulon Jones
Me Again Nikita,

I found Zebulon chosen at the annual meeting of the Town of Newark, as moderator on 14 April 1794. So we can assume that he died after that date. You might want to put that note on Find A Grave.

Thanks for all you are doing.

Abigail Ball - Jones
Hi again.

If this Abigail #6080342, died 1801 at age 49, she was born 1752 and her mother in 1743. I do not think so.

Do you have a e-mail address so we can by pass Find A Grave as we "talk". I am

Zebulon Jones was my 5th great uncle, therefore my interest in him and his family.

Also find Abigail Ball, born 1669 married to Daniel Harrison. She died 1 Dec 1738.


Added by Charles Waid on Mar 05, 2017 9:30 AM

Charles Waid
Abigail's parents are shown on Find A Grave as Joseph and Anna Ball, so she is not the Abigail Harrison who married Zebulon Jones and Thomas Curry.

This has really got me looking. After 40 years of doing genealogy you would think I could find "stuff".

RE: Capt. Zebulon Jones #6768769
Hi again,

The Abigail Jones buried in Bloomfield Cemetery is not the 2nd wife of Zebulon Jones.

I know better than to take other peoples research with out checking it.

So, do not know where Abigail is either.

RE: Capt. Zebulon Jones #6768769
Hi Nikita, I believe you are right even if a number of the history of New Jersey have he death date as 16 April 1782. I find him as an executor of Joannah Cook's estate on 9 January 1786, per the "Archives of the State of New Jersey", first series, Vol. XXXVI.
Looks like the death record for the cemetery is that of his first wife, Lydia Harrison.
So, I assume that he has died, but when and when. He second wife, Abigail Harrison (Curry) is buried in the Bloomfield Cemetery and she died on 14 March 1801 in Essex County.
Thanks, Chuck

Samuel Lindsley Part II
I wanted to see if you could also change the birth and death dates on your memorial. Your Samuel was born abt 1760 (no citation as to exact date). The current birth date you have is for the other Samuel Lindsley (my ancestor). The death date for your Samuel needs to be changed to Jun 18, 1820 based on his probate will and he died in Orange, Essex County, NJ. Again, the death date and place currently listed for my Samuel. Please let me know if you have any questions, I do prefer using email as I can send you documents with proof and also can help you write a bio for this Samuel who incidently is my 1st cousin 7x removed. thanking you in advance, Phil

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

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.

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

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:
