I want to give you an update on Leona's son, Robert. He married a Japanese woman named Miyako Wati. They had two daughters. Miyako passed away on 2/17/17 and was buried today with Robert at the Long Island National Cemetery.

Please see your edit notes. Plz review all Jones in Roanoke Chapel missionary Baptist to see they don't belong in Roanoke Chapel Baptist. (NC, Warren county & Halifax County)
Rules state that memorial in the correct cemetery has precedence.
These two cemeteries have many people confused.

You have wonderful information on your memorials, please get it added to the existing memorial with pictures.

Daniel DeHart memorial #14640762
Additional information for memorial on Daniel DeHart:

Daniel was the illegitimate child of Balthazar DeHart & Margrietje Stuyvesant. Born 1669 [gravestone inscription]. He was baptized 1 Sep 1671 Reformed Dutch Church, NYC. He married Grietje Catlyntje [Catharina] Van Pelt [supposed daughter of Jan Teunissen Van Pelt 1645 Netherlands - 1734 Staten Island & Marytje Pieterse 1649 NY - 1719 Staten Island; remains unsubstantiated].

Daniel's mother, Margaret Stuyvesant was deserted by her husband Jacob Backer in about 1667. Her brother was Peter Stuyvesant, the Dutch governor of the colony for 17 years until the English took over. She was left with her husband's debts in a society that was still partly primitive. Fortunately, she became engaged to Balthazar de Haert but could not legally marry him until Jacob Backer was declared dead. She never married Balthazar as his wife was prematurely cut short in 1672.
Daniel was just three years old when his father Balthazar died. In his will, Balthazar left his son Daniel a house, two copper stilling kettles (used for brewing alcoholic drinks), plus an income of 'sixty guilders of wampum" a year until he reached adulthood.
Daniel's will dated 10 Feb 1750 Elizabethtown, Essex, NJ lists his children: Margaret; Anne; Elizabeth; Catherine; Daniel; Baltus; Mathias and Samuel [memorial #14622107]. All his children were born in Staten Island and baptized Reformed Dutch Church Port Richmond.

He was interred in the oldest section of burying place, probably southwest of church before Rev. Van Pelt's Academy building was constructed in 1890.

Henry I. Eldert memorial transfer

Would it be possible to transfer Henry I. Eldert's memorial to me if this is not your ancestor? (Memorial #23304460) Henry is my 3rd great grandfather. I've been doing a lot of research on him and his siblings, and would like to update his profile with additional information I have, as well as create and link memorials for other family members.

Thank you

Catherine Scoresse
I think you should remove Catherine Scoresse's Social Security Number from her Find A Grave memorial. People in this generation will miss use that plus Her Son & Family may not aprove.

Cemetery - New Sign

I was at Cedar Hill Cemetery, East Millstone, Somerset County, New Jersey, USA today. I took a photo of the new cemetery sign which is much nicer than what they had previously. Can we change the photo that's posted on the cemetery?

RE: Earl R. Lewis
I have deleted the erroneous photo for Earl R. Lewis on his famous memorial and replaced it with the one that you updated at his Wikipedia site.

Thanks for letting me know.

Hi Richard,
Can you tell me how you have the photo of my father's portrait? I thank you for adding it, but I was quite surprised to see it, and then to have it added by someone my age :)

You had created a link #12417863 to a grave site of Steener Nilsen. On the page it states you are a eighth great-grandfather. If so, we are relatives way back in time.

Edward Oldrin Sr. Woodland
I posted the Oldrin family monument photo. Feel free to reuse it if you want.

I also took a photo of the actual inscription for Edward Oldrin Sr. but it is very weathered.
If you want I can send you that even though only a few words are legible.

Added by AAW on Jun 30, 2016 11:17 PM

Edward Oldrin Sr. Woodland
I have 1 photo of Edward Oldrin Sr.'s gravestone inscription, which is quite weathered.
However, I could not post it because the website said there are too many other items posted. Could you remove the cemetery photo, and perhaps also the list of Methodist ministers so I can post the inscription?

Va Nest Family in Neshanic Cemetery
Dear Richard,
I see that you have been quite active in researching/posting information on the Neshanic (Reformed Church) Cemetery. Do you know if any of the original burial records still exist? And if so, where?
I am researching my family members buried there. Most of these relatives have the surname Van Nest/Van Neste and they seem to have been buried close together, possibly all in the same original lot.
'Would greatly appreciate hearing form you. Thanks & best regards, Randy R.

Milner Tree
Good Day Richard
You sent my cousin Chris Chiaponni a link on the Milner family tree on Family Search. Can you tell me how and when John Miler 1700-1763 from Helperthorpe Yorkshire England arrived Nova Scotia and continued the line with Johnathan Milner 1743?
Also I we were told that our Milner's had 2 "L"s but I see that is not the case.

Thank you for your time

Alvilde M. Tanberg
Richard I was wondering if you have any relationship to Alvilde M. Tanberg? You posted her picture on this webpage. She is my Great Grandmother. She gave birth to Ethel Tanberg who married Clifford Milner who are my grand parents. They in turn gave birth to Robert O. Milner who was my father.
Thank you for your time
