Same Cemetery?
Are the Moore Cemetery in Wirt, Allegany, New York and the Carrier Cemetery (same place) the same cemetery. I'm not familiar with the area and don't know. I found Sally Gilbert in the Moore cemetery on Rootsweb in the Allegany County Cemetery indexes.

My gg grandmother was a Lanphear. I've seen the name spelled several different ways. Is Sarah A. Lanphear a relation of yours? She and Issac adopted my grandmother Leuretta Esther Cummings-Farr (Retta). Would you have any information about her adoption? We are not sure at what age she was adopted or exactly where she was adopted. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. I made a request for a photo be taken at the Nile's Cemetery and then read your bio. If you are not able to go, it's ok. I'll get my cousin and make a road trip to Nile Cem.
Sincerely, Cindy Ruditis

Duplicated Cemetery
It has come to my attention the there are two cemeteries called the Cape Traverse Free Church of Scotland Cemetery and you entered all the entries in one of them. The other has 27. And yet there is also another Cemetery called the "Free church of Scotland Cemetery" location Cape Traverse Prince County Prince Edward Island Canada with 4 entries. That a total of three one in the same cemetery. I am asking that you not to add any more listing until we clean up this situation.
By the way thanks for all your hard work.
Best Regards

"Cape Traverse Free Church of Scotland Cemetery" location Cape Traverse, Prince County, Prince Edward Island Canada

Daniel Vaughan - Find A Grave Memorial# 36153576
Daniel's first wife was Mary C. Buell: b 18 Dec 1809 Norwich, Windsor County, Vermont d. 06 Sept 1842 New Hudson, Allegany County, New York. They were married in 1828.

As best I can determine from censuses, Daniel and Mary had 5 children: Diana C. 1829, Roxanna D. 1832, Hannah E. 1833, Mary Jane 1837 ad William 1840.

After Mary Buell Vaughan's death in 1842, he married Caroline Dutton in 1843. He fathered 3 more children with Caroline: Mary Amelia 1845, Squire 1847 and Ellen Florence 1849

I have been unable to find the burial place for his first wife, Mary C. Buell Vaughan. I would assume she is buried somewhere in Allegany County, but there are no Find A Grave records for her that I can locate.

Do you go to the Black Creek Cemetery, Black Creek, Allegany County, NY where Daniel Vaughan is buried, as well as his 2nd wife Caroline? If you do, perhaps you can find where Mary C. Buell Vaughan is buried. If so, PLEASE share that info with me.

MacIssac Family
Your listing for Mary MacIssac MacDonald lists her parents as Angus MacIssac and Eliza McPhee. I'm wondering if this is the Angus MacIssac, son of Roderick MacIssac from Scotland and Micmac woman. I don't have her actual name. My Angus was born in 1810. His siblings were Allan Seal River, Rory, Donald China Point, John Foreman, Flora, Mary and 2 other girls. Flora married John (Black Jack) MacInnis. Flora and John MacInnis are my greatgreatgrandparents. I'd appreciate any additional information on this family!

Maiden name
Hi Deb,
I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction. I am trying to find my great grandmother's maiden name. She is one of your listings you posted. Her name is Frances R. Ewanski. It has been driving me crazy that I have not been able to find it and my mother did not know her being that Frances died at such a young age. I have looked up on but there is nothing with her maiden only could find that her parents were from Germany but no last name. Any help would be great!

william blaisdell
just curious how you found so much information about Mr.Blaisdell....after going through the abstract of title to my house, I found out Mr.Blaisdell lived here from 1936-1941. I just found it fascinating he was a civil war vet and wondering if there's any old photos of him. (out there anywhere) Thanks

Just signed on for the first time in a few months. Had other demands on my time, unfortunately.
According to, yes, Elisha is a son of Alexander and Jane. He has a sister, Nettie, as well. There are pics of them on the site if you have access. He had 3 children, Burton, Nettie, and Raymond. I've updated my email at Find A Grave.

RE: Sylvanis Merriman # 34345210
It is possible I sent the wrong information for
Sylvanis 'Capt' Merriman (1778-1860)
Nile Cemetery: Find A Grave Memorial# 34345210

I've done things like that before, and more frequently as I age.

His parents should be listed as;

Samuel 'Capt' MERRIMAN II (1749-1824)
Sand Hill Cemetery; Find A Grave Memorial# 44286964

Thankful HALL (1742-1823)

Bob Wilson
Hillside Cem., Central Square
Hello from Oregon!

I noticed that you have done quite a bit of work on the listings at Hillside Cemetery in Central Square, so I am hoping that you can point me in the right direction.

I am trying to locate my GGG Grandfather, Levinus Dunbar, who died in Central Square in 1872. He was born in Albany in 1799, and I found this brief death notice online:

The Mexico Independent
Mexico, New York
Wed., April 24, 1872
Page 3, Column 4
In Central Square, on the 13th inst., Levi Dunbar, aged 73 years.

Although the name is shortened a little, I am quite sure it is him, in light of the precise age and the unusual name. Levinus actually had a son named Levi, whom I believe died (at Parish?) between 1865 and 1870.

Levinus does not appear in any of the online cemetery listings that I have seen, but the most logical place to look is Hillside. His daughter's inlaws (my other GGG Grandparents), James & Catherine Wilson, are buried at Coit Cemetery, but that seems to be quite a bit smaller in addition to being a few miles away. I don't know specifically where the family lived; just the general area of Hastings. By 1872, most (if not all) of his surviving children were in the Midwest, scattered over Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. His wife Margaret, who died in 1890, is buried in Wisconsin, near one of her sons (

I would greatly appreciate any information that you might have on the subject, or any suggestions for further research. Thank you very much, and have a great New Year!

Linda and William S.
Axtells, in Greenwood Cem.
Hi. Next to Clarence is the AXTELL marker; on the OTHER SIDE of the marker are a husband and wife named Norman and Hattie SCHOENFELDER.These 4 people--Schoenfelder's and Axtell's--are buried in a straight line across the plot. Norman was a Pfc. in the U.S Army, in WW2. Do you know anything about them; if/how they're related? I thought that Hattie might be a dau. of Manley, but she's not listed in Manley's memorial, so I don't know how they connect.

Alvin Axtell
Hi Deb!

Me again! Hey, you will never believe how I found Alvin's headstone. I was in the Oceanview Cemetery in Warrenton, OR looking for part of the Beemer families in my lines? I walked by this Alvin Axtell, and decided when I got home I would try to find out who he belonged to. I had lost the photo that I had taken (computer went down) so someone else went and took this photo for me. It's amazing what we will find, if we just look! Amen? Whenever I am in a cemetery, I am always looking for names that sound familiar.

Have a great weekend!

Phebe (Day) Condit, First Presbyterian churchyard, Morristown
Hi Deb-- I recently took on a photo request for this memorial, and I've got the photo, but now I'm wondering if it's the correct person. It looks like the maiden name is DAY, so that Phebe DAY married someone named Condit (or Condict). The thing that confuses me is the bio entry, which says she was "w/o Silas Day."

The local definitive source (based on church records and two collections of tombstone inscriptions, 1851 and 1931) is: "Who's Who in the Graveyard, The Presbyterian Church of Morristown, Interments of Record Dating From 1731," compiled by Scott Shepherd, updated 2002. Shepherd's book shows:

"Condict, Phebe Wife of Silas Condict, d. 16 Jul 1762, age 18.11.22."

A note in the text also indicates that church records show her to be "...Twin Daughter of Captain Samuel & his 1st Wife Elizabeth (_______) Day, Baptized 5 Feb 1744. See Condict, Silas, Esq."

So... I suspect this to be: Phebe Day, dau. of Samuel Day & Elizabeth (___) Day, the first wife of Silas Condict, Esq. Phebe died just before her 19th birthday, on 16 jul 1762. Does that sound like the person you intended the memorial for? --dave marr

Asa Axtell
Hi Cousin,
Thanks for helping to tidy that up. I hope you'll rebuild your links to the original memorial. It's nice to have the photo there, and the links.
I'm from Deacon Asa > John > John Warren > Emeline Axtell. She was my maternal grandmother. I'm slowly working to build up the findagrave links for this line.
My main puzzle right now is where John Axtell and his wife Bridget (Gerity) Axtell are buried. I'm sort of in touch with some Gerity descendants, so I hope to solve this problem soon.
