Hi Noelle, thanks so much for the transfer of Alonzo, Gordinier, Mary and Percie Whaley's memorials today. After locating these, I found articles on the internet from Jefferson County which supported information regarding the death of Alonzo - the patriarch of this family who was a dairy farmer prior to his death. Now to order his death certificate as his parents are still a mystery to so many. I do appreciate all the contributions you have made toward total strangers like myself who work diligently on their family histories and finds gems like these! Wow! Inventoring such a large cemetery like Union sounds like quite a project! Stay warm and thanks again for all your assistance. Helen Pickens Murphy, Nashville, Tennessee

Helen, Glad to find family for the Whaley's from Jefferson Co. NY. I have photographed most of Union Cemetery. Slow in posting the photos. If I come across the Whaley family photos I will post them. They are no relation to me. Had been going up the Union Cem. to get photos of family headstones, then because I was in there so much, I started doing most of the cemetery and putting it on Find A Grave. Big cemetery, I don't think I finished doing all of the cemetery…It's abt an hour in half drive from my home, so I don't go there often. Anyways if there are any others that I have posted and you need, I will be glad to transfer to you as long as they are not in my family group. Glad I could help you out. Noelle Fairbanks
