Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was researching my own family, I received a great deal of help from complete strangers who were willing to help me without asking anything in return. This my way of paying that forward. So it tickles me beyond words to discover my headstone photos as part of someone's family tree. How sad would it be if after all the photos are taken and posted and researched and documented that no one looked at them or cared that they were there. So to those of you who have found my photos and made use of them, thanks for caring and you're most welcome.

I feel that its important to say at least a little something about each of their lives. They lived, they loved, and had families. For those that have nothing there, they're not forgotten, I just haven't gotten there yet. And while I don't always cite my sources on each memorial, for Long Island special thanks goes to Carolee Nichols Diamond and David Roberts for their unending patience and wealth of information; the transcriptions and family photos of Elbert N. Carter; George Moraitis, Historian for the Cedar Hill Cemetery, Port Jefferson (R.I.P. my friend); Steve Gill from the Patchogue Cemeteries Restoration Committee; Dan Prunty, Ruland Funeral Home and President of Cedar Grove Cemetery, for his patience and tireless trips into the basement.

If you find something that needs correcting, or if you have information you'd like added, please use the SAC and I'll be happy to make the changes. If you need to contact me, send to aislin at optonline dot net

Samuel Gates
Hi Aislin,

There is a headstone for Samuel Gates. It is to the left of his wife, Zibier Gates. His # is 159239554. I posted a picture of his stone on your memorial page. I was there last May and saw it there. Not sure why the cemetery says it isn't there unless it is recently missing. It's a bit hard to read due to wearing, but it is readable in person.

Minnie Baker
Hi Aislin,
I tried to find her obit after I came across your edits and as of yet haven't found anything. I tried putting in just her last name but the bakers are almost as popular as the abrams and clock family so at first 6,000 articles came up. I'll try again this weekend. If nothing pops up I might just call the cemetery and maybe they'll give me the date. I tried the social security death index and couldn't find her on there.
I completely understand about not fully trusting ancestry trees all of the time. I came across my grandmother on there from an extremely distant cousin and she had inaccurate information on my grandmother as well as her dad and grandfather. I sent her a message explaining that her info was inaccurate and gave her the correct info and she never made the changes.
but anyway did you try the long island surname site? I know that site can sometimes be a pain but its another source. It drives me crazy also when I can't find what I'm looking for also. I know from past experience that if you send me an edit it's bc you've done your research..some people not so much. I've talked your ear off enough so I'll let you go. let me know if you come up with anything.

Nichols Family Cemetery
Dear Aislin,

I happen to live in one of the properties surrounding the Nichols Family Cemetery. I was wondering what records indicate that there are 11 souls buried in the property. There are three main tombstones for Charles A Nichols (103525631), his second wife Hannah Maria Nichols (103525696), and William Henry Smith (103525911). They each also have foot stones. There are two other headstones that are beyond recognition. I was just curious where you found the information for the other internments.

The daughter of a family who sponsored Alfred and Anna Nauen is searching for descendants of the Nauens. Her parents sponsored them when they left Germany during the holocaust.

Leo, Vincent and Austin Sullivan had a sister Alice E. Sullivan, she was born 13 Sept 1888 in Brooklyn, Kings, NY. Unfortunately I have not been able to find her death date or where she is buried. My mother who happens to be Alice's niece, remembers that Alice was in a hospital in Brooklyn sometime in the 1940's suffering from cancer. She was married, but my mother does not remember Alice's married name.
Also Austin Aloysius Sullivan, my maternal grandfather was born 16 Dec. 1889 in Brooklyn, Kings, NY and died 09 July 1945 in Patchogue, NY.
He is buried in Cedar Grove Cemetery Sec R Lot 71
Range 11.

Thank you for creating the memorial for Leo Sullivan.

RE: Margaret Schlenck King
Thanks for your quick reply Aislin. Your answer does help but I have one more pesky question. How do you know the person in the 1860 Census is the same person who married Julius King? I haven't been able to find any documents to prove this. I have to be very careful to document everything because Margaret is my daughter-in-law's second great grand grandmother and I can't get it wrong. Thanks for your help.

Margaret Schlenck King
Hi Aislin ~ A quick question regarding the birthplace of Margaret Schlenck King, Find A Grave Memorial# 175892520. Every Census gives her place of birth as Ohio, as does her marriage license, while this memorial says Indiana. I'm searching for her parents and wonder if you would kindly share the source for this information with me.

Thanks for transferring my grandfathers memorial over to me to manage and all the new info you added! I'm so happy to find this out!
