I just wanted to thank you for all the hard work you did transcribing that book of inscriptions and creating all the memorials! I went and photographed the entire cemetery last week. All that amazing work you've done has made matching the pictures with the right people so easy! You've also filled in a more than a few gaps in my family tree and I just had to express my appreciation and admiration!

RE: Cheery Cheery Hello!
Thanks so much for your help in connecting Emma Jane to her family. I realized I had found her parents too!

RE: Cheery Cheery Hello!
Thanks, Carole. Good to hear that you went on a little trip and did some photo volunteering on the side. It is easy to trip in a cemetery so you should always be careful. I have that habit of wanting a wider shot so I often back up without looking behind me first. Not a good idea. I have learned to inspect the landscape everywhere I go now.

FYI: I visited Maple Grove Park Cemetery in Hackensack and I am posting photos. You probably have some people of interest there so you might want to check it out. I did see one of your bios on a Haring who is buried there. If you want management of memorials, just send me an edit. That is no problem.

Holdrum Family
Hi Carole,

I received your message about sending additional information for my Holdrum family memorials and will happy to add or edit their memorials. I'm directly related to the Holdrum family through Cornelius Holdrum.

Also, thank you for posting the 3 Holdrum memorials at the Westwood Cemetery (James, James C., & Margaret) and the 3 Holdrum memorials at the Tappan Cemetery (Cornelius, Elizabeth & Margaret). I was wondering if you would be so kind as to transfer their memorial to me. If not, no problem. I would totally understand and appreciate the information that you have already entered. I would be deeply grateful if you would honor my request. My membership number is 47318863. Thank you for your time and all your work you have done for Findagrave.

RE: Love these older headstones...
I like the older headstones too. Art and History combined :)

Louise + Cordelia + Alice Townsend
Dear Carole, I want to take a few moments to thank you so much for creating Find A Grave Records for my three Townsend relations at the Rockland Cemetery, Sparkill, NY. Louise Townsend (d. 1936)Find A Grave Record #170660485 that you created on 28 Sep 2016 was the mother of Cordelia d.1948 (Find A Grave #170660486, also created on 28 Sep 2016) and Alice d.1945 (Find A Grave #168345511 .. that you created on 14 Aug 2016). You so very kindly put a lot of detail on the record for Alice (Daughter of Joseph Gardner Townsend) ... my Gt-Gt. Grandmother's brother ... whose Find A Grave record I created last summer (Find A Grave #167184909) ... he's buried in the Palmyra NY Cemetery. For the better part of a decade I have wondered where the ladies may have been buried ... and now thanks to you I know. Sadly, our branch did not know these ladies, as far as I can tell. Sadly, the daughters never married and lost their father when very young. Suffice to say I have them "united" in my Family Tree on ... and now with their resting place known. Again, many thanks. Clive Orford.

Little P
Lewis Sayre Burchard and Anne Stanton Burchard
Carole, I have been searching for Lewis Burchard for over 20 years. He is the last of 10 children of his mother that I have been searching for, and now I see you have recently added him and his 2nd wife, Anne! Do you have any idea how excited I am right now? Do you have any other information about them?

Thank you so much for what you do with Find A Grave.

RE: Would you like me to send Jack your way.
Hi Carole. I wrote up what I know about Jack, which is not a lot, but it's something. Today, I'm calling St. Peter's to get the locations of some plots, so I should have some photos to add soon. Thanks again! -Sheila

Her dad is still alive. Your solution is the correct one. Thank you so much!

Yes, this was a granddaughter as I thought. Thank you very much for this information. Her middle name was Cathleen. No direct link is possible, but perhaps you could note that she is the granddaughter of E.L.M. (170179368).

Added by Jole on Apr 30, 2017 4:03 PM

Greetings Carole! Could you obtain the names of the parents of this person, possibly a granddaughter of 170179368. Thank you so much.

I ran over to Rockland for a better shot of that gravestone. The newer version is now replacing the previous version. Much easier to read.

Oops. Stupid auto-correct. I meant that he was an imp.

Hi Carole. I just noticed your question. You certainly can send me Jack's memorial to manage. Thanks! - Sheila

John W. McDermott - age 10
Hi Carole. He really was adorable. I heard that he was a real impact and a happy, little boy. Jack's dad is #75953320, Joseph McDermott. Hi mom is # 75953318, Emily McDermott.

RE: Hi there Sheila!
Hi Carole. My grandmother told me that she'd been nagging Jack because his socks kept falling down. When she and my grandfather found out about the brain tumor, she swore she'd never nag or criticize her kids, again. She was a very gentle person, and to my knowledge, she kept her word. I added a photo of Jack to the memorial. He was a cutie. Thanks again. - Sheila

Added by Sheila on Apr 27, 2017 6:41 PM

John W. McDermott - age 10
Carole, thank you very much for adding my uncle, who was known as Jack. A brain tumor caused his death, which occurred while he was at Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital. I didn't know that he's buried in Haverstraw, but now, I'll go to visit his grave when I go to visit other family members buried there. Thank you again. - Sheila McDermott

readed your story
Very interesting and it is wonderful that you found something useful to do. All the best, Ruth Becker Cipko

The correct link
I think the correct link for her husband is 159865467, although I see 15 JUL 1811 birthdate in records.

Added by Deborah on Apr 21, 2017 7:01 AM

Improper Link
Hi Carole,
Please check #159865568. I think this is Catharine Blauvelt's son, rather than her husband. His birthdate is after her other children's.

Found this on ancestry: "Bogert-On Tuesday morning, April 9, Sally Ann, wife of Gilbert J. Bogert, aged 61 years. The funeral services will take place at her late residence, 59 Christopher street, on Thursday, April 11, at half-past twelve o'clock."- New York Herald, New York, New York, Wednesday, April 10, 1872, pg.5.
Looks like 11 Apr was interment date.

Added by Deborah on Apr 18, 2017 6:20 PM

Sorry again
Maybe it was the right link. I was looking at another Catherine. I better take a break!
