Charles Duval Beckwith/Charles Dyer Beckwith
He is listed in your obituary as Charles Duval, but in Wikipedia and Political Graveyard as Charles Dyer.

I was wondering where you came up with the middle name of Duval?

Johanna Bruning
Hello! I'm trying to establish whether or not Johanna Bruning was Johanna Keppler, born about 1869 to Michael and Anna Keppler. Their daughter married a Bruning according to Michael's will, however I don't see a husband buried near her. Do you have any further information? (Michael was my G G grandfather). Thanks!

YOU are more than wonderful!
I dropped you a note of thanks via email but had to stop here again to say a triple thank you thank you thank you.

My goodness are some kind of wonderful!

I have added some of his children to findagrave...wonder if you could verify those burials via obits.

I thought I would take the time to add all of his descendants here. Would be fun to have a huge reunion of this gentleman. He certainly was an interesting character!

Hi there...
I actually put Mike Findley instead of Henry in those acknowledgements. Thanks again!

I do have a quick question for you....I would love to have an obituary for Albert C Bogert. I have found write ups in the New York papers about his 100th birthday but would love to verify where he is buried. Thanks EVER ever so much. I am trying to piece together his family with obits. Since New Jersey papers are not online, I have not been able to get any of the family obits.

Thanks once again!

Albert Cornelius Bogert


BIRTH 28 MAR 1781 Spring Valley [Now Paramus],
Bergen, New Jersey, USA

DEATH 27 JUN 1882 Paterson, Passaic, New Jersey

4th great-grandfather

Milnes Family
Hi Mike,

I thought I had all the burial and plot information for the Milnes family, but I guess I missed one or two.

I would appreciate it if you could send me the information. You can send it to

RE: Martha Milnes Death Notice
It is not a problem that you send corrections. They are appreciated. I see your name and accept knowing your sources. I would rather have more information and do not have time to research everyone myself.

Thank you for all your work, too.

Pamela Ward Howard
Ryle family
I was reviewing people like Peter Ryle and William Ryle on Find A Grave and realized you noted they were buried in Macclesfield, Cheshire, England. For documentation purposes can you tell me where you verified that information. Wonder if there are any headstones we could have photographed for us. There is an individual who just posted some Thornicroft pics that were extremely helpful and validating. Thank you for your help. May I also ask who you are related from. My link is William Ryle - 1834-1881.

Claudia Grieder
Hello, I was wondering how to find out if my great grandparents were buried here. I believe they were as they lived in Paterson, and my great-aunt is buried there. Their names are Nicholas and Hendricka van Peer. Nick was born 1863-ca 1939, and Hendricka was 1863-1928 I believe. Hendricka's maiden name was Van Den Bos.
I believe my other set of grandparents should be buried there as well they are John Grieder, Jr., 1873-ca 1954, and Anna Grieder, 1870-ca 1946. Anna's maiden name was Burghardt. I don't see any of their names listed on findagrave, and don't know how else to find them. I would greatly appreciate it if you could locate them there, or give me some advice how to go about locating them.
Thank you,
Claudia Grieder

Masker Plot
Thanks for all the great work you all are doing with Cedar Lawn Cemetery in Paterson.

I have a question about the Masker plot. I am performing research for a Masker descendent. The entry for Eliza Robinson (Unknown- July 1895) states that 14 family members are buried in the Masker plot with only having a headstone (Hester Priestly). Would you happen to have a list of the other persons buried on this plot?

Thank you
