William Francis Grealis
I declined your edit for birth of William because his death certificate was very clear to read April 3, 1907 and I didn't find his birth record. I have since found a record that states April 3, 1908 like you suggest so I have changed it. Thank you for you input.

Abbie McMillen
Thomas Barrow
I have been searching high and low to try to find out why John McComb (1763-1853, famous New York Architect) refers to Thomas Barrow as "MY BELOVED UNCLE". They were both involved in Trinity Church but i cannot find the family tie, and It's driving me nuts. Also, the relationship of the same John McComb to William Pers "my greatly esteemed uncle" who died of yellow fever in 1798. Were these men somehow related to his mother, Mary Davis? I can't find out ANYTHING about her. Any leads would be sincerely appreciated.

Transfer of Memorial #41642565, William McClellan
Hi Dan - I would love to have William McClellan transferred to me. He is my 5x great grandfather and my patriot in the DAR. I am descended from his son, Col. John McClellan, and have done a lot of research on the family. Thank you for creating the memorial! Fran Quarles

You are so kind to transfer this memorial to me! Maybe I'll achieve a little sanity this fall by luring my husband away from that time wasting Fantasy Football!!

Capt. Peregrine White, Sr.
You took a photo of a news article for the death of Capt. Peregrine White, Sr. He died in 1704. He lived in Marshfield, Plymouth, Mass. He was born on the Mayflower. Anyway, would it be acceptable to you if I could gain a copy of this article from you??? I would really appreciate having it for my files as I build one branch of my family tree. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks for your time. and my name is Heather

RE: William Irvine tombstone
I appreciate your allowing me to use your photos.

I assume that you think that there is no reason to pursue trying to get a better photo of the inscription.

Thank you so much.

William Irvine tombstone
Dear Dan,

Thank you for posting the photo of William Irvine's stone at Gloria Dei in Philadelphia. Gen. Irvine is my 5x great grandfather. I am putting together a book of Irvine family pictures for my family for Christmas. First, I would like to ask permission to use the photos that you posted in my book.

Secondly, can you tell me if there is any legible inscription on the obelisk or the flat stone in front of it?

I have a copy of what was supposedly the original inscription from his stone at the Presbyterian Church in Phialdelphia, but do not know if the same marker was used when his grave was moved from there to Ronaldson's cemetery and then to Gloira Dei.

Any help that you could give would be most appreciated. I have had no luck in contacting Gloria Dei. They do not respond to emails or letters.

I have been notified that your entry is a duplicate of an entry I made 2 years prior. Also note, that I personally visited & photographed Ephrian Seeley's grave site in Old Presbyterian Church Cemetery, a couple miles north of Old Stone Church Cemetery, indicating your entry is not in the correct cemetery and should be deleted.

Jane Minugh Memorial
Thank you, Dan.

My now deceased mother and I tried to find this grave in person, many years ago, when I lived in Manhattan. How I wish she was still alive, so I could share this page with her.

Many of our ancestors, including Jane's parents, William and Abigail, lived in lower NYC in its earliest days. They were mainly seamen. One ancestor, John Minugh, was a harbor master, during the era of Cornelius Vanderbilt.

Our Minugh history in the USA is documented, all the way back to New Amsterdam. "Valentine's History of Old New York City" lists our family name among the Huguenots, who fled to America with the Dutch in the 1600's.

Samuel Pierson
I am related to Samuel Pierson and can trace the lineage as far back as 1634. Samuel was a messenger for general George Washington during the battle of Monmouth. Samuel Pierson was a fine Horsman and a man of great courage and strength who Washington entrusted with several important and Perilous commissions in caring out one of these during the battle of Monmouth, Pierson was compelled to ride right in front of enemy lines of barrel and in full range of their guns; two horses were shot from under him, one of which in falling, injured the riders leg, but he was mounted on the third and carried out the commanders orders. Washington warmly commended him, and said "I feared when you set out with the orders that I should never see you again."

Giuseppe Verdi
The write up says G Verdi died in 1901 in Italy and is buried there. How can it be listed that he is buried in Forest Lawn in Buffalo? This is a commemorative statue reinstalled from Kleinhan's Music Hall. Info is confusing. Are there more details available? Or shouldn't it be clarified re: burial status?
Thank you.

Hi Mr. Silva,

Thank you so much for the information on Reuben Fowler. I've added it to his memorial.

Colonel John Banister
Hi Dan, the image of the colored painting you have for Col. John Banister is often confused with Col. John, but it is actually a John Banister from Rhode Island and was painted by painter Gilbert Stuart. I just posted the real picture of Col. John Banister of 5th great grandfather.
-Thank you.

RE: Biographical information
Thanks for adding the edits and biographical information. I see that you have a special interest in the graves of veterans of the Revolution. Since there is no existing marker for David Baker I have sent an e-mail to the organization which is the Friends of the Battle of Brandywine requesting that they take a photo of the Brandywine Battlefield historical marker and send it to me so I can post it on David Baker's memorial page. I do not want to copy an existing photo of this marker which appears on the internet as this would violate the rules of For a number of years I did Revolutionary War reenacting and was a member of the Royal Welch Fusiliers reenactment group. I am a bit old for that kind of activity now but I still maintain a strong interest in Revolutionary War history. Many thanks, Eric Baker

Biographical information
Hello: I have sent to your e-mail account some biographical information regarding David Baker who died in Morristown in 1835. I have also sent some other edits.
On another note I have enjoyed reading your biographical information of famous persons such as Richard Somers.

Many thanks,
