Bio Photo FOLKS:
****If my name is below the photo on a memorial page, please click on the photo to enlarge it and access an explanatory caption, which in most cases includes a transcription of every legible word on the lot, whether legible in the photo or not. I also include as complete a burial list as I can for as many lots as I can. If you have an issue with the photo for any reason, contact me before issuing a duplicate photo request, which will most likely send another graver on a wild goose chase for an impossible photo.
****In many cases, just because you have received an automatically generated email telling you a photo has been uploaded--don't assume that's the whole story. I nearly always put in edits to update or add information not already part of the memorial page. It could take weeks for those edits to be approved by the page creator--unless it's me--(they usually, but not always, are). So check back from time to time.
****It's a good idea to identify pages by their memorial numbers rather than by name, as names are duplicative and can change as the result of research. Green-Wood's online burial search--the source of most Green-Wood memorial pages, is generally dependable, but nevertheless loaded with small but misleading errors that are inadvertently copied into Find-a-Grave by the page creators.

Cecilia Patrick "Pattie" Simmons Photo
Ok, I learned something new today. Thanks for the tip.

However, this marker only lists William Patrick and his wife, Augusta. He supposedly is Cecilia'a uncle. Where is Cecilia? She is supposed to be the only daughter, of Benjamin Franklin Simmons and his wife (my ancestor), Eleanora Jane White. They were a prominent family here in Pensacola. It appears that Cecilia never married and spent her life in Brooklyn.

Sorry, I'm not trying to be a problem. I have volunteered myself for Find A Grave. Unfortunately, I live
about a mile from Barrancas National Cemetery. I was getting 30 to 40 (no joke) requests a day for photos. Short of taking up residence at Barrancas, I had to remove my name as a volunteer. I have though taken photos of family graves and put them Find A Grave. Maybe one day, I'll re-volunteer of Find A Grave's site when I have more time.

Dear Bob,

Thank you very much for taking the great photo of the gravestone of my maternal grandfather's first cousin in Brooklyn. Just discovered the Gundersen / Gunderson branch of my family.

RE: Bliss, Dorr, Green, Marhoffer - Green-Wood Cemetery
I did see your transcriptions beneath the enlargements, which also helped. Again, thanks.

Bliss, Dorr, Green, Marhoffer - Green-Wood Cemetery
Thank you for taking the pictures. I was able to glean add'l genealogy info from some of the markers because they had complete dates of birth/death inscribed. One inscription even showed a relationship to an individual whose grave is not located in the Green-Wood. Your pictures are clear, and I especially appreciate being able to click and see enlarged pictures of the grave markers. This greatly eased the ability to better read the inscriptions.

Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph the lot where my 3rd Great Grandmother is buried. And thank you even more for taking the time to add the additional information regarding the plot.
Thanks again,
