Dear Dan,
Thanks so much for posting the photo of Mary Ward Doyle's head stone. She was my ggg grandmother. The stone gave me information about her son's death and a grandson I didn't know existed!
Best regards,
Nancy Gannon

Joshua Mundy (# 19133649)
Good Morning, Dan!
It has been a while since I last contacted you...I hope all is well with you! I'm still working on adding photos of all of the headstones to all of the memorials at First Presbyterian Cemetery in Metuchen; I now have about about 61% complete!

I have been working with a Veteran (for about a year), originally from the area, now living in Florida, to connect with some of his family members. He made a surprise visit to NJ several weeks ago. I took him on a tour of First Presbyterian, Old Colonial and Hillside Cemeteries in Metuchen.

While looking at Joshua Mundy's memorial this morning, I saw that he is listed with his wife Phebe Cutter Mundy (his 1st wife according to Phebe's bio), and his daughter Lovicy (Mundy) Mundy. When I clicked on Lovicy's memorial, it said that she was the daughter of Joshua and his 2nd wife Phebe Ayers. I know that Joshua is yours and that the other memorials were made by Alice LaRue, but she has been off line for several years and may have passed away.

I was wondering if you had any info on Joshua Mundy's other wives? Thanks so much!

Enjoy your day!

Veghte Burying Ground
Hi there Dan. You were actually at Dumont Burying Ground ( when you photographed the photos you added to memorials in Veghte Burying Ground ( The location is mislabeled on Google Maps. So, the memorials you created are actually duplicates of memorials that had already been created in Dumont.

JA Harder
Hamilton McCollister (1742-1825)
Hi Dan,
Hamilton McCollister #40007291 was born in 1742. All of the old records, including the DAR record, say 1742. The gravestone says he died "in the 84 year of his age", meaning he was 83, not yet 84. Apparently, this has been misinterpreted and folks have changed his date of birth.

Martin Van Buren
You've got my attention!
The Dutch NYC banking family Ann Amos married into was my family, although from my own research, we weren't bankers - we were physicians.

I'd be very interested in some back research on the Van Burens (van Beuren) that you may have to further my understanding of my ancestors on that branch of the tree.

On my 6th GGF, Richard Amos, I'm led to believe that sry likely was pulled into the Culper Ring by his lifelong best friend, George Higday, a Culper spy, for at least one action: the Great Raid.

The calculus that would go into the assessment would be simple: if you're going to stage a prison break, who do you ask to help? Answer: someone you've known your entire life and know won't rat on you "for King and country."

Daniel Amos
yes Richard and Daniel are the sons of Richard ads Elizabeth( Ritter) Amos. I tried since putting data online with City Of Ny Historical records . To get their home parish to at least hang a plaque in recognition of what Richard Sr and Christopher likely did in the War. It is in an old book on The Village that they were " Revolutionary War heroes". Online says they were trustees of Lord Admiral Warren. And that after the war they got all his estate and whatever he didn't take with him back to England. Put the two together I must conclude they were spies not affiliated with Culper. OR involved in some kind of economic sabotage on the British. Tories wouldn't get such a valuable gift if they worked for the losing side. Love to talk with you about this Revolutionary War puzzle around the grave of two kids. A daughter Anna Amos lived to adulthood and married into an old Dutch NYC banking family. .

Richard Amos in Saint Paul s Churchyard
i researched that stone. Based on what s online and the NY Historical Society on 5 th Avenue it is likely his dad and uncle were spies for the Continental Army right under the nose of a Lord a Admiral. Richard Sr and Christopher Amos got all the Lord Admiral s estate( Wrest Village now) after the war. If they were Tories this wouldn't have happened. I tried to give a plaque to the rector of Saint Luke s onChristopherSt to the 2 Vets. Don't know if it was put in the church. The Amos home parish

Ben Fletcher
Captain Francis Marsden
Hello Dan,

Would like to thank you for adding this gent, he is a distant relation. My Great Grandmother was a Marsden. Is he a relation of yours too? I have added a picture of his monument (I believe the grave has been moved when Wakefield Church turned into a Cathedral).

I understand that he died at Burntwood Lodge (Hall). Not sure if this was his father’s house or some relation as I understood him to have lived in Kettlethrope Hall. I understand he had a sister called Hana Maria who married a John Carr of Hornby (a relation to the Yorkshire builder, John Carr of York).

I read that he was known as “Frank” by other officers and that he was “well pounded” at the Battle of Bunker Hill, but did his duty. Unfortunately he never recovered.
All the best
