"Kerk Hof"
Hi Beverly,
I appreciate all that you do so much! I just ran across "Kerk Hof" Cemetery, and can't recall if I've brought this to your attention in the past, or not. Have we had this conversation before?
Some of the graves here are also listed under its proper name, "Van Wagenen Ground", and were added after you created this batch of memorials.
"Kerkhof" is a generic term for "cemetery", so this place has been labeled "Cemetery Cemetery". In the deed, the place was called "Evert Van Wagenen's Kerkhof" (=burying ground).
Source: "Genealogy of the Van Wagenen Family from 1650 to 1884:..,
by Gerrit Hubert Van Wagenen.
There's a description of its location here:
http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ny/county/dutchess/data/cems/rhine/rhinevanwagenen.htm
I've thought of the place, and of my ancestors who settled around there, every time I've taken the train over the years. I wish I could have visited it. (I moved to the other end of the continent a few months ago.)
From what I understand, burial grounds in NY state cannot be owned by private owners, so I assume it's landlocked by private property.
It's wonderful to see the place fully transcribed and put into memorials, and I feel it would be a tremendous service to descendants of Kips, Van Wagenens, Roosas, Eltings, Van Ettens, et al, if the more descriptive name were used.
Thanks again for all the wonderful work you do.
~Julie

RE: Van Wagenen, Van Wagner
You're welcome and thanks for the info about the name variation - it's certainly something that creates a challenge for genealogists!

Yes, it is difficult when there are multiple marriages. You can't put it with the maiden name as it will show in italics, and to add it to the middle name puts it before the maiden name. Thanks for your consideration.

RE: Sarah Ann Spies Baker FAG 144575397
Yes, you are correct. However, I think I said Kip Baker, not Kipp. The reason I did that was that I have seen her name that way in some newspaper articles, however, if you want to keep it just Baker that's fine. I understand it's to be the way it is on the stone.

Thanks for the clarification.

RE: Rhinebeck Cemetety stuff
Glad to hear it! It's fun for me to remember so many people and places in Rhinebeck. I could almost smell the Schaad's butcher shop! I'm getting it from the newspaper collection held at http://www.fultonhistory.com.

Rhinebeck Cemeteries
Thanks for the wonderful work you are doing Beverly. I'm coming to visit Rhinebeck next month from South Florida. My 6th great-grandfather was there in the 1790 Census but I haven't been able to figure out why or who his his wife was. Hoping to find some clues...

Kate T Bird 91093947
I was puzzled about Kate Bird's 1884 death and John T Bird's (121787033) obit
which said she survived him and several other paragraphs from the Gazette; November 23, 1895 the couple was contemplating spending the winter in Lansing, MI; July 23, 1910 "Mrs. John T. Bird since the death of her husband, has entertained her daughter-in-law Mrs. Thomas Bird of New York and accompanied her to remain in her home for a few days." Aug. 13, 1910 "Mrs. John T. Bird is disposing of her household goods and will go to Michigan to live with her people."

Finally found John T in the 1910 census for Rhinebeck with wife Esther. Evidently he remarried. I had inserted Kate's name in his obit. Would you change it to Esther?

RE: Emily Brown obit
I was puzzled by the use of her maiden name also. The only explanation I could think of was local pride in the Brown name, or one of the aging siblings wrote it. Emily was twenty when she married Levi and 73 when he died, and there's no mention of another marriage or adopted children.

There's a very interesting article about the Old Brown homestead, "The Orchard" in the Gazette from a DAR talk given by Mrs. Sumner (Genevieve) Spurling - her father was John C. Brown. I can't read the year on the microfilm but the issue was May 17 between 1916-1919 - I'll transcribe the article over the weekend and email it to you. The property was 3 miles south of the village and less than a mile east of the Post Rd. It also has a connection to Starr Miller- I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

RE: Roswell Beach
You're welcome. And to learn he's your 2nd great uncle is neat. It's too bad the photo with the article didn't reproduce - you have great photos with the other Beach's. The names definitely had me puzzled and I gave up trying to figure out who was who, never imagining you'd be related and know the answer.

RE: Obits for Rhonebeck Cemetery
You're welcome! I really enjoyed all the information about the library you had on Mary Miller's memorial. I spent a lot of time at the "old" Starr while growing up and remember the librarian, Miss Moore with great fondness.

If you dont get a reply, you could explain the situation to Find A Grave, and ask them for a transfer or deletion of the ones with the wrong spelling...

RE: Backowski vs. Baczkowski
I would ask for a transfer, then delete them. If not, just go on as you are doing, because yours are mo- betta... I have also notified at his end, so maybe he/she will remove them.

Thanks for getting back with me.

Hi Bev,

I think I figured out who this child is. I believe him to be Abraham C Schultz, son of Isaac 92804571 and Elizabeth Gaskin who are buried near one of the roads in the middle area of the cemetery. Do you have any other dates? any info on his plot/gps or other clues?
