Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will gladly make updates/corrections to any of the memorials I have added to Find A Grave and will transfer those that are not in my family tree. Just be patient as it may take me several weeks to respond. You can use the Edit and Transfer tabs or contact me via email.

The work I have done on this site, and hope to continue, is strictly a genealogical labor of love. When I am in a cemetery looking for my own family I am happy to take photos of other gravestones. Many of the entries I have made come from obituaries or news items that I come across in my research, and therefore may not have a photo attached. I strongly believe in adding such biographical data, even though it may not be accurate, because it sometimes provides that elusive clue, or even a place to start. In many cases I've added memorials but have not had time yet to transcribe the obituary. You are welcome to contact me to ask if I have an obit in my files.

cemeteres in Maakating
Hi Vivian

I don't know why this duplicates are coming up now. As you know Mr. G and I did these cemeteries for the Town of Mamakating and made books on them and I really do not want to take off the year that we worked on them and would like them to match the records at the Historical Society. I was not aware that you had recorded this cemetery I knew that the Roe family did a listing but that it was no up to date that is why our committee was formed to relist and clean them Mr. G and I spend over 6 years on them and would not like to have our work just taken away. I find that this site and not what it use to be and it bothers me the way it is being run. Please say hello to you Dad for us. Charlie and Helene Goetschius

Vivian, St. Mary's parish office in Washingtonville has no record of this man in the cemetery records. I was able to fulfill 21 other request, but not this one. There are 5 St Mary Cemeteries in Orange County. Is there a chance maybe he is in one of those?

Hi Vivian, I sent you an edit yesterday, but today, was working on the next picture that I am uploading in to the Bloomingburg Cemetery that was next to Elizabeth and it is a tall monument of Miller's. so she must be connected. Check out Charles Miller and the others (hmm, don't have number copied). Just thought you might want to know. JoE

Howard E Smith
Hi Ifound an obit for Howard E Smith from the Ellenville Press. Would you add that the original obit from Ellenville Press is at the Mamakating Historical Society if any one wants a copy or call 845-866-1607 Thanks Helene

I also found one for Charlie Bellman which I added to the cemeterylist.
Camille gave us all the original obits from the paper that they had at the library they put them all on computer. I also made a copy of the ones you have on there and put them in a book. It is amazing how important they have become to people looking for information.

Hi Vivian...the birth date on this memorial is 1859...if you look at the 3 on the date of death you will see a 3 is rounded on the top where as the birthdate on this stone is straight and flat and if you blow it up to 400 per cent it is clearly a 5...


still can't get captcha to work no matter what browser i works fine on other websites but not with Find A Grave...:(

time to go to bed
OK the date is right on the site. Somehow I misread it. Time to close the laptop and go to bed.

Sorry for confusion...Kathy

Sorry for not using edit, but I refuse to utilize Captcha anymore until they fix it.

The death date is incorrect on this monument according to the attached obit with it. The obit states they died the morning the paper came out. It was not unusual to get info in the papers that fast in those days about deaths.

Hi Vivian.

You have Samuel McCoubray listed as being buried in Sylvan Cemetery in Wurtsboro. He is "NOT" there !!
I am currently studying the family and would like to put them all in their proper places as they are "NOT" recorded anywhere at this time
You can e-mail me @ and I will gladly share the evidence with you .

Thank- you !
Sincerely: Robert Dunn
