|My family research started in 1980.|
In August 2007, I founded the Angel Babies Memorial Project. The mission of this project is to discover and record the gravesites of infants and children who died in New York City and other states between 1798 - 1948 and link them genealogically to their families.
Every memorial serves as a tribute to a youngster who died much too soon. They all deserve to be remembered and honored, and given a sense of dignity and love in death that may have been denied to them in life. By doing so, they will not be forgotten.

I added photo based on his date of death. Date of birth is way off. If this is not the right person, let me know and I'll delete the photo. Keep up the great work. - Kevin

|Charlie K.||Elizabeth Jennings Graham|
Hi. Thank you for the profile on Elizabeth Jennings Graham. I wanted to bring to your attention that Wikipedia says her death date was June 8, 1901, rather than June 5, 1901. Any help with this discrepancy would be appreciated.

I don't know where this burial info came from, but I just found the New York City death record which indicates he was buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Brooklyn 21 Jul 1867.
Would you please correct this information, so I can request a photo of the headstone. Thank you!

|Margo Krieger||John Krieger memorial|
I just wanted to let you know I submitted a birth date for your John Krieger memorial #166306609 of Dec 16, 1863. I got it from his passport application he filled out in 1921 to visit Germany [from ancestry U.S. Passport Applications, 1795-1925]. He was John George Krieger, my husband's gg-grandfather. Thank you for your all of your wonderful memorials, keeping memories alive.
