Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

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.

RE: John P. Flagler
Thanks, Rob!
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.

Swarthout transfer

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.

Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for taking the photo of Dollie Saylor Sims headstone for me. I really appreciate you taking your time and energy to volunteer for and for taking and posting this photo. I live on the west coast and I don't know if I would ever be able to get to Tennessee.
Thanks again,
Cynthia Gaufin

David DeLong link
Rob, I have requested David's(136050996) Mother to be deleted, as by his birth date I think he was a stepchild. Her first husband hadn't passed yet, and she had another child by him after David's birth. I think I probably requested she be added at one time because they are on the same stone. My mistake, and I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
Thanks, ~~Hank~~

I believe his father's last name was Wallen and his mother's maiden name was Latham.

Thank you for all you do to aid others in their research.
