RE: L Preston
Thank you Kathy! I will take a look :-) There are also likely related Schraders in other nearby cemeteries to be linked up. Appreciate your work getting all the information from the cemetery records!

RE: L Preston
Hi Kathy,

Thanks, totally understand. :-) I have a longer email with more details I've just sent to you.

Or you can find Preston listed in the 1900 census with wife Maud and son Preston. They are listed as Martin Shrader, Maud Shrader, and Preston Shrader.

Citation Information
Year: 1900; Census Place: Wilson, Niagara, New York; Roll: 1130; Page: 8B; Enumeration District: 0092; FHL microfilm: 1241130

Not sure if URL from ancestry will work:

RE: Chestnut edits

Thank you for offering to transfer. I would love to take over the care of their memorials. Even though Frank would be my 4th cousin, I too am of the opinion that family should maintain memorials. And if someone with closer ties comes around, I will gladly pass them along.
Thank you again for all you have done. It is very much appreciated!

Pauline (Find A Grave #153229286) and Frank (Find A Grave #53229285)

William McNitt
RE: Sarah Tabor
I don't have proof, but think that this Kate is the Catherine McNitt who appears in the family of John Wilson McNitt and Catherine Hubbard McNitt in the 1850 census. That would make her Sarah Tabor's younger sister.

An earlier correspondent had given me Catherine's dates as 1830-1858, but had not given me her married name. I am trying to find an E. M. Condon. There was an Edward Condon of the right age range in Shelby, Orleans County in 1860, but I don't know if he is the same person.

RE: Sarah Tabor

I would guess that Catherine is buried in the same cemetery, but apparently there is no stone for her (I haven't visited the cemetery myself). I am from another McNitt line. Sarah McNitt Tabor is my second cousin five times removed, but I am broadly interested in the McNitt family and currently looking at information one her and all of her siblings. As I find them in findagrave, I am adding the links to their father.

If you need any additional information on any members of this family, I will be happy to share.

RE: Leo J Stutz 151175361
Hi Kathy,
Thanks for the note, update and offer! Leo is the Grandchild of a John Jung, (edits pending), which makes him a second cousin of my late father-in-law. Maybe a third cousin to my wife? Not until an Ancestry DNA match, did we find this line of the Family after looking for many years! Turns out many have remained in WNY and we have probably been passing each other in our daily lives for decades!
If you want to transfer him that would be fine.
BTW, Thanks for the volunteer work you do for this site. Much appreciated by all, I'm sure.
Best Regards,

RE: Ruth Dissington
Hi Kathy,

No problem - I'm just getting going with researching my family tree and Ruth's husband, John is my great-uncle. If you can transfer it to me, that would be great as maybe some other relatives might be in touch, but no worries if you can't.

Thanks for taking the photo too-it sounds strange I know, but it's good to be able to see headstones of relatives, especially since I doubt I'll ever be visiting it!

Hi Kathy, thank you for the message. Yes, they are my cousins.

Linda Dukes
Ella Ward-Foster
Fillmore-Halstead Cemetery
You asked me if I believed Ella was buried with her parents. No. I do not.
I believe since Ella married, & had 7 children
with her husband. I would like to move her memorial to Prospect Hill with her husband. I will request stone photos & hope for the best :-)
If you want to try to crop "Ella Ward 1858" & put a note in the caption "Cenotaph on parents Tombstone" or something like that...That would be fine. What do you think?
I have had such a hard time with my Foster Family, maybe some people back then thought tombstones were a luxury they couldn't afford? I don't think they thought of future generations being interested in finding old graves...
It can be very frustrating.

Nancy Mather l# 150177721
Thank you so much for the photo. My mother in law was a Mather, and have done quite a bit of research but have nothing on this David or Nancy Mather. There are Mathers from Scottland that I have no knowledge of. The Mathers I am researching are from England and ancestors of Richard Mather born 1596 in England and came to America in 1635.

My mother in law's line is through Timothy and Elizabeth Atherton Mather.

If I can be of any help let me know. There is also a website that has a tremendous amount of information on this family:

Thanks again for your help.

Kathy, please remove the ADAMS headstones from this memorial, since my aunt is NOT buried near her 1st husband (George Samuel Adams), even though her name was inscribed along with some of their children (Most of who are buried at NRC). She is buried in the North Ridge Cemetery near their children. I have poster her headstone and her obit indicates that's her burial ground.

Thank You, regards, Grace 8/26/2017

Hi Kathy, I'm researching my Stover Adams Austin families AGAIN, and found Ruben's obit. He was the son of Mary Elizabeth Stover and Oliver Adams who are also buried in Dickersonville cemetery.
He was married to the former Sarah Lawton and they had 5 children: Charles L;, Pearl E; Herbert L; George O; and Oliver A.
His dad Oliver Find A Grave #: 89842632
His mom Mary Find A Grave # 89841833

I'm going to add it to Rubens memorial page.

Thanks, Grace

Hi Kathy,

Thanks for your note from the 15th. I've posted in my web space a page from the FHC map books showing William Born's and others' grave locations and years of death. Let me know when you get it so I can delete it.

Photo Request for Helena Newman
Hi Kathy,
Rather than call this a "problem" on your photo request, I wanted to drop you a note.

I walked Mount Pleasant Cemetery looking for Helena Newman's gravesite for your photo request. I found her plot, however, there is no headstone for her. She is buried in a plot that had three other Newmans, presumably family members:

Lilla C. Newman 1885-1910 daughter of JM & SE Newman

Clessie J. Newman 1881-1896 son of JM & SE Newman

Susan A. Newman 1835-1904

I have a photo of the three headstones (and the missing fourth) as a group, if you would like it.
