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.

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.

RE: Relationships
Thanks for your note. No, I'm not a relative-- just trying to add info where I can. If these are folks of yours, and I manage any of the memorials, please request a transfer and I'll be happy for transfer.

Henry Casler Cornwell Cemetery

Could you please transfer Henry Casler to me as he is my 4th great grandfather and some of his info is incorrect. My mother is a Casler from this line, my husband and I have repaired his stone along with the stone of my 4th gr grandmother Mary Casler and other family members in this cemetery.

Thank you

RE: Minnie S Cornell Walker

I obtained the obituary for Minnie S Cornell Walker, as I suspected, she did not die in Los Angles as indicated in your memorial, whoever sent you that information was incorrect. Also, I believe her birth is incorrect, in the 1900 US Census, it states that she was born in July 1874, not September 28, 1874.

let me know how you want to proceed from here

Minnie S Cornell Walker
Hi Cheryl,

I found Find A Grave memorial #104994133 for Minnie S Cornell Walker. My question is how sure are you of her death date and place. It seems Los Angles would not be logical for her death, when her husband Warren died in Cayuga County, New York

I would appreciate clarification.

Della Sullivan
Hello Ms. Cheryl,
I don't now if this is the Della Sullivan I have been searching for but can you tell me where you found her year of death as indicated in your memorial. Would like to find whole date of death and try and find an obit or death certificate. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Thank you, Maureen

Hello my mother in law messaged you and yes she is related to Douglas Gunn, who lives in NY. If you have ancestry I have a tree made for her.
