Thank you so very much for the transfer of Arvilla and for the most kind and heartfelt sentiments on this Godly woman. I hope I can do them, and you, justice. I will try my best. I was really touched by your words, it's impressive that two people who lived and died more than a hundred years ago are still affecting the lives of people who get to know them in this century.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart

RE: Engbert Van Der Kolk.
he's baptized van der Kolk, the 'van der' are just prepositions (from the) and when coming to the US they became more part of the name and you get different spellings like Vanderkolk, VanDer Kolk, etc.
But I'm still curious, did you make this picture on purpose so that the text on the site could be read?

RE: Thomas Lucas
Hi Leigh Ann,
Will you take a look at your page and see the other one with the tombstone photo? Is it possible to call E. Saugatuck Cemetery and see if Thomas Lucas is really buried there? If he is, then you have him without a headstone listed in the wrong cemetery in New Gronigen.
Don't you just hate it when you have a list with errors in it? I think I trust a cemetery photo of a tombstone over a list that can contain many errors. Obviously the man can't be in 2 places at once unless he was supposed to go to the one and got transferred or moved to the other. It's a mystery to me. Thanks for your reply!

Herman Dekraker
According to records I was looking at, Herman Dekraker was in WWII, PFC, serving with Company A, 50th Armored Infantry Battalion, 6th Armored Division in the European Theater of Operations. According to, he is listed with the US Dept. of Veterans Affairs BIRLS Death File as being with the Army from March 42 to October 45.

I will transfer ownership of Bill's memorial to you. Unfortunately I find myself unable to devote as much time to my memorials at this time, so I appreciate your offer. Thank you, Vickie

Vanden Beldt relative
Fred Vanden Beldt was my great grandfather.Margaret Pommerening was his daughter,my grandmother's sister. I visited her often as a child. Thanks for asking. I have recently become interested in family history and find a grave is my way of fueling that interest and to honor their memory. There may be more relatives I request from you in the future.

RE: Dutch names..
Records are only as good as the person's skill who is doing the recording. My great grandmother's name was Grietje, which would be Greta or Gertrude in English. The census taker wrote it correctly on the 1870 census, but the indexer getting the record ready for the web was so unfamiliar with the Dutch names and slaughtered them trying to Americanize them. He/she typed George for her name and changed her gender to male. I showed this to my Dutch immigrant husband and we laughed our way through a page of records with so many errors. My OCD kicked in and I went to work correcting all 59 pages of that record because people who were well known Dutch names like Zondervan and Steketee were filed under L and would never be able to find their families. I have to remember too that when the immigrant people came here they had thick accents and people writing down their records probably couldn't understand what they were saying and wrote things phonetically which leads to misspellings on the records. I figure the tombstone names are going to be the correct spellings because who would pay for a stone that was misspelled? Then again, the information is only as good as the person giving it, and my grandmother's birth year on her tombstone is off by 3 years because she never told the truth about her age. No one really knew and only 2 years ago I found her birth certificate and found out the true date.

Lemuel Jenison
Leigh Ann,
Lemuel is now linked to his parents, great grand parents, etc. all the way back to Robert Jenison who died in 1690. Thank you so much for creating the memorials for the Jenison family and your generosity in transferring Lemuel to me.

Leigh Ann,
I am stunned by your quick response and touched by your generosity. Thank you for the transfers. My husband and I do the same thing. I am working on memorials for early settlers of our county.

RE: Lucas family corrections
Thank you Leigh Ann. The Lucas family are dear friends of mine and I love it when I can find the kids and parents and put them all together as a family. Looks like you have been at this awhile. I just discovered this site last fall and think it is such a valuable way to remember the ones who have gone on before us and left us their legacy. I don't want anyone to be forgotten so I appreciate all the work you do for Find a Grave.

St Anthony's Cemetery
Hello. I believe the photo of the cemetery gates you have posted for St. Anthony's Cemetery in Bessemer PA is of a different burial ground. The caption also mentions St. Mary's Cemetery. Just a heads up. Hope this is helpful.
