Eliza Hendrickson
Hello David,

First I'd like to thank you for creating most of the profile pages for those buried at Huntington Rural Cemetery; it's one of my favorite locations to photograph grave requests. Your dedication to Findagrave and preserving local history is commendable. There is one Findagrave page that I have a request for that I believe was created in error and want to go over with you. The cemetery has no record for Eliza Hendrickson Findagrave # 60553080. I am curious if you reference Eardeley's handbook for early Huntington Rural burials because that is the only place where I believe a reference could have been taken from. According to page 24 #284 there is a burial listing for Charles - son of Joshua and Ann Eliza - the "Eliza" from Ann Eliza was pushed to the next line so it appears that a child Eliza was buried on Oct. 19, 1857 at the age of 2 years, 5 months, and 14 days when it was really their son Charles. Charles' Findagrave # is 65598952. His burial was Oct. 20, 1857 at 2 years, 5 months, and 14 days. I just want to confirm this with you that Eliza (Findagrave # 60553080) didn't exist as it was really Charles' info so that we can take down her page. Please get back to me about this matter. Thanks so much for your continued effort in preserving Huntington Rural History! It is greatly appreciated!

RE: Langford / Lankford
Thank you very much. I'm trying to get my Calvert County relatives more deeply involved in their own genealogy. That's pretty much why I sent the requests to transfer. I have most of them as members of a closed "Tippett & Hill Families" Facebook group and some seem to be getting more involved.

You'll probably hear from me again on the Tippett line in St Mary's County. They go back to colonial days and most remained in the county when so many others left for KY. I'm really interested in finding a St Mary's County ancestor who fought in the American Revolution. No luck after 10 years of on again off again looking, but I'll keep looking.

Thanks Again,

RE: Florence Hill - Olivet
No problem. I greatly appreciate all that you have done for southern MD genealogy. You and Linda Reno really got me going years ago in St Marys County.

With respect to Lankford or Langford, her parents are buried in Olivet UMC Cemetery under the chosen name Langford. In the 1800s up to the 1900 US Census they used Lankford. I don't know of any relationship this family has to other Lankford or Langford families in Calvert County. Wm I[saac] Langford arrived in Solomons from the Eastern Shore. And his descendant line with the Langford name ended when his son Wm Edward Langford died as a bachelor in 1970.

If I had not noticed that the two memorials were in different cemeteries, I would have deleted mine as it was made second. Dodged a bullet there. I was sure that you would know if there was another stone for her.

Thanks so much for the transfers! I appreciate your kindness.

HI Dave, thanks for taking the time to do this important research, but I have a question in regard to the William A. Roberts, are you related to the Roberts? I only ask because I am related to the Roberts, I don't know what you know of the family history but William Roberts senior was married to Lucinda Gildersleeve who is the great grand daughter of Richard Gildersleeve, Plymouth, Mass. Bay Colony settler and eventually one of the founders of Hempstead and Huntington, New York. Let me know if you don't mind and again< thanks, Steve Gilzinger

RE: Faunce
Thanks for all you've done for the Faunce family in St Mary's County! Haven't been able to check everyone, but all looks good so far. If this family had just been a tad bit more creative in names we probably wouldn't be having this much trouble.
Thanks again, and will definitely contact you if I find anything.

Hello David!
I wanted to provide some verification that the presumed connection between William Ebbitt and Christiana Sinclair can be found in his obituary (link below) which specifically states that he married Christiana S. Sinclair.
Her date of death matches the information on the transcription of her death certificate here:
Thank you for your efforts to be accurate in your work! As a fellow historian and former teacher, I appreciate running into someone else who is like-minded! Keep up the good work,

Selah B. Howell SR
Hi David,

Please disregard my previous message.

Apparently there were two Selah B. Howells. They are father and son. Apparently your memorial #25752696 for a Selah H. Howell in Cedar Hill is the father, Selah B. Howell SR. He is the husband of Olivann (Wicks) #25752742. Could you please connect the two of them and add their son, Selah B. Howell JR. who is buried out in Lake Grave, New Village Cemetery # 6382565.

I am referencing A Genealogy of the family of Richard Howell by Thomas H. Donnelly

Hi David,
Please, if you will, connect Olivann(# 25752742) to her husband Selah B. Howell (# 6382565. He is buried at New Village Congregational and she is in Port Jeff. Thanks for connecting my ancestors.:-)- Susan

RE: Oliver Brown ?
Dear Sir,

If you would not mind transferring him to me, I would appreciate it as I am in the process of building profiles for each of these members of the Brown and Finch Families of North Castle/Greenwich which are my ancestors. Thank you.

Dear David:

Thanks for your note -- you're more than welcome!

Hope to see you at an upcoming genealogical meeting -- if I can ever get there ... seems something's always in the way.

RE: Sarah Tucker Lore
Thank you David, certainly hope someone will come upon her mother's grave at some point, likely somewhere nearby, record and add it to Find a Grave, so we can link it.

Would you know how I can find Plot 69? I have the architect's drawings of the stone corners with chains, etc. but no map of the cemetery plot locations. Thanks for any help you may be able to offer.

RE: Oliver Brown
Hello David,

The 1845 death year was a typo and should have been 1815. I believe we have the same person here. Oliver Brown was the son of Daniel Brown, Patriot, and Sarah Lounsbury of Greenwich,CT/North Castle, NY.

RE: Oliver Brown #40617698
Hi David,

Oliver Brown's death is recorded in the Finch Family bible of Jonathan Finch, Jr. born 10 Nov 1772 in Greenwich, CT/North Castle, NY. Jonathan Finch married Sarah Brown who was Oliver Brown's niece.

His death in the Bible is recorded as " 30 Oct 1845 age 45 years."

Are you able to procure a picture of Oliver's gravestone?

Tradition states that the Finch's and the Brown's were born in Greenwich, however, the Finch family and allies tended to hover around the border as their land was in the Banksville and Round Hill neighborhoods of Greenwich. Therefore they may have been born either in Greenwich or North Castle, yet neither town has their births recorded. They are all buried in the Middle Patent Rural Cemetery in North Castle, NY.

I believe he was born in Greenwich and died in Huntington. Is there a way you could help me procure a copy or certified copy of his marriage record and death record in Huntington? I would like to view any vital statistics information that those records may have.

Thank you!

Andrew Honeywell

RE: Melville W. Spencer
I don't have anymore now but if I find any, I will send an edit. He was my 2nd cousin but I didn't know him or her.

His mother was my first cousin 1X removed. I knew she existed but had no idea where she was, who she married, or if she had children. I just recently discovered information about her. That is how I found Melville.

Thank you!
