Bio and Links
Bio Photo Greetings!

A Find-a-Graver since the site's origins as the hit for notable graves--not genealogy--I do "Famous" bios, and photograph/write about old gravestones, cemeteries, and the people interred within for the general reader. Will cheerfully answer queries, make corrections, add data to the "Family Links" section, and include other relevant info ASAP. Please no requests to insert multiple hyperlinks in the narrative part of the bio or to transfer pre-1900 burials. Find-a-Grave members can always include any grave listed on the website in an ancestral or other type of grouping by using the "Virtual Cemetery" feature. If you wish to quote me or use my photos, please contact me; attribution for written pieces is "by Nikita Barlow, for Findagrave", and for photographs, "Photo by Nikita Barlow". Thanks for your cooperation, and happy graving!

I hope you live in the Auburn, NY area. If not perhaps you know a volunteer nearby who can take a photo of a gravestone in Lakeview Cemetery, Town of Fleming, Auburn, NY.
Gary E. Thomas memorial # 178813131.
LOT#121, SECTION # 1, GRAVE# 1. If you would, please email the photo and I'll insert it into his memorial I created.
The Fleming Town Clerk emailed me this info...the deceased is the son of a very old friend.
I am in North Carolina.
Thanks so much.

First Presbyterian Cmty., Orange, NJ
Nikita, I was talking to new photographer for that cemetery & this is what she said:
I was late in reading about the new owners of the First Presbyterian Church and how they thought they might move the stones for a parking lot (I beleive there was enough outrage that that is not happening now). I do have a lot of photos with the white flag markers, the new owners had a sonar/radar company come in a mark all the areas in which there are actually remains below the stones too.

Had you heard about this? My DAR said they could not find a contact for the Orange Mountain DAR so we could ask about it. Do you know any society that might be able to clarify info on this? It must be on the Register for Historical Places.

Hi Nikita,
I can't imagine the complexity of all the Memorial pages you have created. Here is my problem, and I hope you can help.
Ezra L'Hommedieu had (2) Wives:
#1: Charity Floyd (Memorial #8273004). He married
her (12/24/1765) in Brookhaven, Suffolk
County, New York.
#2: Mary Catherine Havens (Memorial #113055914).
He married her (6/15/1803) in Queens,
Queens County, New York. She is related to
I asked Find A Grave to add Mary Catherine Havens as Ezra's wife, but there was no menu choice to tell them she was his 2nd wife. So, they listed her as his 1st Wife, and spelled her middle name incorrectly. They do not seem to reply to e-mails,
so; I am sorry to bother you about this. I know you would want Ezra's bio to be correct, as I do. I thank you! Janet (Havens) Siegfried, Contributor.

Zebulon Jones
Me Again Nikita,

I found Zebulon chosen at the annual meeting of the Town of Newark, as moderator on 14 April 1794. So we can assume that he died after that date. You might want to put that note on Find A Grave.

Thanks for all you are doing.

Abigail Ball - Jones
Hi again.

If this Abigail #6080342, died 1801 at age 49, she was born 1752 and her mother in 1743. I do not think so.

Do you have a e-mail address so we can by pass Find A Grave as we "talk". I am

Zebulon Jones was my 5th great uncle, therefore my interest in him and his family.

Also find Abigail Ball, born 1669 married to Daniel Harrison. She died 1 Dec 1738.

Abigail's parents are shown on Find A Grave as Joseph and Anna Ball, so she is not the Abigail Harrison who married Zebulon Jones and Thomas Curry.

This has really got me looking. After 40 years of doing genealogy you would think I could find "stuff".

RE: Capt. Zebulon Jones #6768769
Hi again,

The Abigail Jones buried in Bloomfield Cemetery is not the 2nd wife of Zebulon Jones.

I know better than to take other peoples research with out checking it.

So, do not know where Abigail is either.

RE: Capt. Zebulon Jones #6768769
Hi Nikita, I believe you are right even if a number of the history of New Jersey have he death date as 16 April 1782. I find him as an executor of Joannah Cook's estate on 9 January 1786, per the "Archives of the State of New Jersey", first series, Vol. XXXVI.
Looks like the death record for the cemetery is that of his first wife, Lydia Harrison.
So, I assume that he has died, but when and when. He second wife, Abigail Harrison (Curry) is buried in the Bloomfield Cemetery and she died on 14 March 1801 in Essex County.
Thanks, Chuck
