Barnabas Horton
Thank you for taking the time to photograph and share the grave marker for Barnabas Horton. Through research I believe that he may be my 10th Great Grandfather. May I use your photograph in my personal family tree file? I use these photographs as an additional source documenting the life & death of my ancestors and their descendants. I will so note that it is being used with permission from Find A Grave Contributor: Fred Saar #46511066.
Thank you again for your time & effort, it is greatly appreciated.

Do you add to the memorials? If so...

I didn't know about this line of my family until a few months ago. Turns out my 5th great grandmother, Margaret Roorback, is less than ten miles away. After a lot of pictures at different angles, I was able to decipher enough of the words on the stone to google. I think it was written by Francis Bunney 1543-1617:

My bark is past- the haven's won-
I fear no stormy sea;
God is my hope, my home is heav'n,
My life is happy ease.

This hope, this home, this life so sweet,
Who'ere would wish to win,
Must banish every vain delight-
Each bitter root of sin.

Sunnyside Farm Cemetery
Hi Fred, Have you ever been to Van Alstyne plot at Sunnyside? I would love to see some pics of the plot. I'm a direct descendant of Marten Abraham Van Alstyne who died c. Jan 1791 and is probably buried on the plot with his wife, Catharina Van Alstyne. There are many others that I think are buried there. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this farm appears to be directly west of Lindenwald.
Thanks,

Krum Stones
Hi Fred: I wonder if you can tell me where you found the five Krum gravestones (Martin, Jacob, Barbary, etc.) in Chatham Center, NY. I'm working on the Krum family history (mostly in the Krum cemetery in Hillsdale) and would like to go to the spot and view these outliers, if possible. You created the entry in 2014. I am wondering if this might be a small family plot on private land? Thanks for your help.

RE: Paul Adams.
I've contacted several of the cemeteries that they have stones in, but NONE of them have any record of them being buried there. I asked Why would they have stones there if they aren't buried there? No one knows! I also asked "Would there be any paperwork if they just had stones placed there as cenotaphs" and every place has answered YES, they should have paperwork, even for just a stone. So I'm totally baffled. One place was going to check and see if there was a stone there. He said it was POURING down rain at the time and he would call me back today. I'll let you know what I find out!

RE: Paul Adams.
LOL! Of the space kind or the border kind?!
One stone (in Brevard) has a different YOD for Betty. It's listed as 1995, but everything else is identical!

RE: Paul Adams.
Did they have two different stones at Florida Memorial Gardens? It was weird that the stones were the exact opposite of each other, one had Paul on the left and the stone in the other cemetery had Paul on the right.

Phebe Miller
Hi, Im a little confused by your Phebe Miller, she was my 4th Great Grandmother, and married Joshua Whitney, she was the daughter of Peleg and Phebe (Sherrill) Miller. You have her as being married to a Barnes, and buried in a different cemetery and county, I believe she is buried in the same cemetery as her husband joshua and parents.

Hi, Fred,
I believe that this Jacob was not a soldier in our Revolution, but that he qualified for DAR Patriot status as he paid the supply tax in support of the effort. He was in his 50's during the time period of the Revolution. danielle@bonpain.com

RE: Marie Parks
Hi Fred,

You are very welcome for the photo. Iím glad that I could help.

I donít remember how I came to add Jamesí name to Fairview. I most likely did it when I looked to see where Marie was buried and noticed that James was buried next to her.

The documents I have for Fairview show that there are six Parks interred there. James H. and Marie W. on one side of the Parks monument (row 13) and Frances S. and G. Smith on the other (row 14.) The last two are Blanche G. (died 10 Mar. 1937) and Hyram Arthur (died 17 Aug 1955) both of which are located in the mausoleum. I have now added memorials for all with photos for the first four. Unfortunately, there is no record of a Merry Parks at Fairview.

Regards, Steve

Jonah Parks
I live within the geographical area for requests for Kenosia Cemetery in Danbury, CT. I have carefully checked Connecticut, Hale Cemetery Inscriptions for Kenosia and cannot find Jonah Parks--or any Parks--listed.

The 1850 Census lists Jonah as living in Ridgefield, CT; 1860 lists him in North Salem; 1880 in Ridgefield. It is very possible that he never moved, because at one time North Salem was part of Ridgefied. (It later became part of NY as part of a trade for more coastline.) Ridgebury is actually part of Danbury, CT.

Kenosia is quite a distance from Ridgefield, so I am not sure they would have taken him that far, especially since there were no other Parks there. I would suggest that you go to the Town of Ridgefied website and request the Death Certificate for Jonah from the town clerk--there is a form on line that you can mail in. Death Certificates are filed in the town where the person died and most include the burial place.

I hope this has been helpful. I would enjoy hearing how it works out.
