Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Tompkins County, NY. Most of my family and several generations were from Cayuga County, NY. I do enjoy walking the cemeteries and taking photos of the headstones to share. When I walk a cemetery where my relatives are buried and see the other headstones, I can only wonder if they knew my ancestors. Perhaps they held their hand during a difficult time or bought them chicken soup when they were ill - I can only imagine. I know where I will be buried and I knew people who are buried there and I know people who will be buried there and am comforted that I will be among many family and friends who have been a part of my life. Now I wonder, did my ancestors know others buried near them too? In regards to Find a Grave - to soon people are forgotten and what a wonderful way to memorialize them and share their lives.

O'Connell's in Auburn/Union Springs area
Hi Cheryl,
I'm doing research on my O'Connell relatives/ancestors, many of whom are buried in Cayuga County. I noticed that you created the listings for several of them on the Find A Grave sight. Are you somehow related to any of them? Also, there is a woman joeanna who has left messages on several of their pages. I have reached out to her but haven't heard back. Do you know of her? Thanks.

Vanderfife - OakGlen Cemetery Aurora NY
Hi Cheryl,

There are several graves in the Oak Glen Cemetery in Aurora NY with the name listed as Vanderfife. This is a misspelling, the name is actually Vanderipe. The older John Vanderipe is my great, great grandfather.

How do I go about correcting this?

RE: Transfer
You're welcome. I checked and wasn't related to Mary Hall, though I do have several kin in the Kell Cemetery including my great-grandmother.

Hi Cheryl,

Thanks so much for all you do...I am grateful for people like you who put a name to a grave site.

Margaret Marrow is my Great great Grandmother from England George, John, Thomas and Tomie are her children. Catherine Morrow is her sister-law. Margaret married William Marrow(Buried in Ithaca) in Tompkins county in 1856. William's Brother Thomas married Catherine and settled in Lansingville with His brother. All of the Marrow family members had their name change to Morrow by the beginning of the 1900's.

Helena "Lena" Frances McDermott Kline
Helena "Lena" McDermott, born 1920, married Bernard Kline. You will note on the photo of the gravestone that she had not passed when her name was put on the stone with her parents. I will determine from cemetery records where the remains are places...with the McDermott stone or the Kline stone.
