|Bio and Links|
I began researching the family history of both myself and my wife Suzanna in July of 2010. Little did I realize how much this new hobby would be come so important to my life. It has been a gratifying challenge as well as a spiritual mission. Genealogy has allowed me to make connections with family members whom I might have otherwise found reason to connect with. For this reason alone, I am thankful for this journey.|
Over the past 5 years, I have moved from doing personal family research to focusing on regional cemetery & newspaper research. My most recent projects have been for cemeteries in Washington County, TN (Oak Hill & Monte Vista in Johnson City), obituaries in The Comet (Johnson City, TN), Old Lawrenceville Historic Cemetery in Lawrenceville, GA, Rensselaerville Cemetery (Rensselaerville, NY) & Onesquethaw Cemetery (New Scotland, NY).
I'm a firm believer in photographing headstones, as opposed to relying on second hand transcriptions. While including these surveys is quite valuable to our knowledge-base, it is important not to consider these sources as primary and infallible. It's best to consider all available sources when researching burials.

Hi Rob I added a picture to both the Matthew Gathen and Sophia Gathen memorials.... can you please delete them? I just realized the pictures are Matthews son and his wife not this Matthew and Sophia. Thanks

No, it's fine. Was just surprised, that's all.

I thought I made a memorial for Peter during the research process. Wonder what happened.

These are my ancestors through their daughter Anna (1799-1880) who married John Andrew Lawson. I've been researching these lines for a long time, and recently proved Lawson is a Lassing from Dutchess Co.
Doherty's SBP gets the Dutchess Co. Ostroms and Flaglers right, but then copies bad info on the children. He has John Z.'s son Benjamin in both groups!
These families are connected to some of the earliest folks in New Netherland, so it's very interesting.
I'm thrilled that I helped solve a mystery for you. I have made the transfer. Please let me know if there is anything else.
