Richard, I never saw your message here that you wrote so long ago. I am sorry. If I have anything you need let me know.
Thanks. Sandra

Memorial# 8281890
Greetings, Richard
Thank you for all your additions to this wonderful site. I believe the first letter of your Rev. Samuel Seabury II Biography is missing. "He first Bishop..." should probably read "The first Bishop..." Perhaps YOU can edit such things even though Find-A-Grave now maintains the memorial. Just a mention!

Nancy Hopkins Trier photos
I am a volunteer worker for Civil Air Patrol (CAP) a nonprofit organization. I put together events, activities and educational materials for CAP. These items are given freely to all 56,000 CAP members as well as about 3500 teachers (Aerospace Education Members) or AEMs who use our materials to promote aerospace and STEM subjects to about 200,000 public/private/home schooled K-12 students nationwide. I have written two booklets/workbooks that address twenty-seven “Women in Aviation” from 1900 to today. These two volumes introduce these incredible women, a brief story of their lives and includes photos as well as material. I have identified several photos on Google Search of Nancy Hopkins Trier that I would like permission to use, and properly cite your website and the photos back to you. Please respond to me with your approval, concerns and thoughts. This is not about money, it is about educating youth today about some incredible ladies. Thank you in advance. The images that I have in mind is from your website where she is standing in front of an airplane and one with her sitting in the cockpit. Thank you in advance.

In the Spirit of CAP and Flight,

Dutch Reformed Churchyard information

My name is Carreen Kaufmann. I use this site quite often in my research of my family. Thank you for listing the Port Richmond Dutch churchyard on this site.
My Grandfather is not listed, Capt. Cornelius Corsen , who bought the family plot. I do see a Capt. Jacob Corsen, who is a cousin of ours.

His father is Capt. Jacob A. Senior -1665-1756 he was married to Elizabeth Veile -1675-1756 Married in Brooklyn, Kings, NY 1701
These two are my great-Uncle and great-Aunt. They could be mentioned on Capt. Jacob Corsen tomb page as his parents. Two capt.'s name Jacob Corsen.
This information can be fount at
I'm still looking for Capt. Cornelius Corsen. but have not visited this graveyard or Staten Island yet.

I didn't have any luck with that wiki site. It appears you need to be a member to view "email this user". I have only a smartphone.

No familysearch, ancestry or social media accounts. Email and text only! Though I use familysearch for genealogical purposes, I never created an account. Do you have an email address other than this public one on findagrave?

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

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?

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.
