|Bio and Links|
My name is Matt Voorhees, I am currently seventeen years old and have been an active member of Find A Grave since I was twelve years old. Ancestry is my passion, since 2008 I have been fascinated with history, mostly my family's history. I also collect old ephemera (Paper, Diaries, etc.), photographs (Dags, Ambros, Tintypes, etc) as well as several family heirlooms that have been passed down to me. I have studied for the past few years the history of photography and fashion so I can accurately date photos within a ten year time frame or more exact at times.
I only rarely do Grave Photo Request because of my school schedule. Feel free to message and or email me.
Corrections and family relationship additions are welcome and will be reviewed before acceptance.
Please refrain from posting flowers with politically motivated statements regarding Trump. I am neither a support of his nor were any of the memorials I manage due to the simple fact that they are departed.

Matt, thank you ever so much for the help on getting the grave marker photo on Francis. You are such a big help.
|Jeff Donaldson||RE: Inaccurate|
Hi! This is Jeff Donaldson. I need the name of the person. (I Peter 5:7)
Would you please tell me your relationship to David Voorhees? Also, if you read my bio, you will find, near the end, an easy way for transfers/additions/corrections, to be done. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

|Ginny DeLong Parker||RE: Quicks in Tompkins|
I never heard of Woodhull - what large city is it near? If it is somewhat near me - I would be glad to go there for you. I did, however, find a few Quicks buried nearby in Garrett-Mandeville Cemetery (Dutch Reformed Cem.) in the Town of Caroline, Tompkins County, NY. Let me know if you need any of those Quicks.
I've uploaded photos to Barnett Eisenberg and his wife, Hannah, in Ahavath Sholom Cemetery. Also for his son Morris and his wife Jean. Memorials are linked.

You are quite welcome, Matthew. I'll be out there on Sunday. I hope you'll like my photos. Where are you located?
|Joni Hockett||RE: Landon|
That is quite the accompliment for someone of your age, well, any age. I am much older and have been researching on and off since the 1980's. I've always loved family history, any history actually.
I heard much the same story. I was told that Hulda had my g-grandpa go out first because she wanted him safe. She wasn't going to leave and knew if he knew that, he would refuse also. He told me it was the farthest jump he ever made, and actually wasn't sure how he did it. I have his bible and he has an article with a picture of the bridge he jumped on, that he drew on in ink and wrote a note about it.
I have a huge trunk of stuff on differant sides of my family that I will pull out this weekend and will find the stuff on the Landon's. I know I have Hulda's birth & death certificate, a burial record. It cost $13.00 to bury her. I think your g-g-grandpa was the one who paid for it.
|Joni Hockett||RE: Landon|
Wow! That is great! Hi Cousin :)
Yes, Charles Landon is my great grandpa, and Echo is my grandma. My father, her son, is still living. I have a lot of historical stuff on Hulda. My Grandpa Landon was so hurt by her death that I only heard him tell the story of the flood once, after his death I kinda made it my mission to find her - all I knew was that her friends called her Jenny. It was a wonderful search ending at her tombstone. I will be in Fletcher later this year and will most likely stop by it.
What stories of the family were passed on to you?
|Joni Hockett||Charles E. Landon|
Charles E. Landon was my great grandfather, and I just wanted to make a correction that he is buried in Forest Hill Union Cemetery in over in Piqua.
