Hi Donna, Not sure if my first message went through, so please excuse if you get this twice. Clarence and his Mom look good. Yes, the maiden name was Rockwell. I've sent you some more updates. Thanks very much. Chris

RE: Photo Request Problem - Emma Lamerson
Hey Donna!

If it's ok with you, I'd love to have the request out there. I have photographed every single headstone, but there were several that were illegible, so quite possibly I have it and just don't know it. Also, I know the pastor of that church, and perhaps they can look at cemetery records.

Thanks,
Dave

RE: Mufson.
Hi Donna,

Mrs. Mufson appears to be a duplicate of your entry Itta Leah Mufson at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Mufson&GSiman=1&GScid=65295&GRid=99835315& who died on 23 Kislev 5688 (17 Dec 1927) and was the widow of Benjamin Mufson. I realize that you have a 1928 year of death for Mrs. Mufson, but perhaps her newspaper death notice/obituary was published in Jan. 1928. Itta Leah Mufson died in New Haven, CT. Perhaps back in those days it took several weeks for news of her death to reach the Kingston paper.

Donna,
Thanks for the photo. I was wondering if she was buried with George! Ella was his first wife.

My family was very close to George's daughter, Ruth. She was married to a cousin. Thanks again!

RE: Jacob Jackson.
Yes, you can switch this to me. I work intermittently on find-a-grave but I have found several (many?) others from this area (Brookville, etc.) that I would also like you to switch. Namely Voorhest, Voorhis, Van Voorhis so as I get to them I'll send a message to you! Thanks so much for your help! ~Ed

Will FAG Remain Free?
I hope you are right. So far, they say it will remain free.

Excerpt:Will Ancestry.com Turn Find A Grave Into a Pay or Subscription Site?

Usually, reading comprehension is a valued and available skill for genealogists. But when emotions take over, as in the case of Ancestry.com purchasing another company or site in the industry, genealogists forget about those reading skills. From Ancestry CEO Tim Sullivan in the press release:

“We will maintain Find A Grave as a free website, will retain its existing policies and mode of operation, and look forward to working with Jim Tipton and the entire Find A Grave team to accelerate the development of tools designed to make it even easier for the Find A Grave community to fulfill its original mission to capture every tombstone on Earth.”

Find A Grave has become both a Memorial site and a genealogy site. Ancestry.com now owns it as of 2013.
I must agree that is a very good idea. I just hope Ancestry.com doesn't start charging, and it remains a free site for everyone.

Hi Donna
Do you have any info about him being a Revolutionary War soldier? The bible mentions it, but I can't find him on any official site of Revolutionary War veterans.
Thanks so much for any info you may have.

RE: Percy Miller -
Sorry about the confusion. Percy was the son of Ella's first husband Aaron Miller. They married in 1908 and had 7 or 8 kids. Aaron must have died because sometime around 1924 Ella remarried to Eli Coddington and had at least two more kids with him. I have not yet been able to find out where first husband Aaron Miller is buried or I would make a memorial for him that you could link Percy to.

RE: Percy Miller -
Hi Donna.

His mother's memorial is number 78604936

I thought I'd copied and pasted that when I originally submitted the edit, but I may still have gotten it wrong (accidentally included a carriage return or something?).

The weird thing is that both my edit list and the automatic FindAGrave email that I was sent both say that the edit was approved. Maybe there's a server problem somewhere? I wouldn't be surprised if something somewhere got overloaded or had a hiccup from all the holiday traffic. I've been having an unusual amount of dropped connections on my internet service the past couple of days and maybe this is something similar.

Also, could you please leave a note on Percy's entry as to possible mistakes on his grave stone? His birth year appears to be a year off since I've found what appears to be his birth announcement in a 1918 newspaper (no need to fix the date - just leaving a note that there's a question about it will be fine) and several other records (census, etc.) also seem to indicate a birthdate of 1918.

Also, the stone is a Jewish marker, but his family was Protestant, and a military casualty roster also lists Percy as Protestant. It's possible that Percy personally converted to Judaism, but it's equally possible that the Army just messed up his information. At least they put the stone in the right cemetery - the receipt for it got that wrong too (it says "Pine Grove" and there don't appear to be any cemeteries by that name in Ulster County).

Anyway, thanks very much for letting me know. I hope you had a good Thanksgiving too!

WOW, that was strange. Yes I was using my iPhone & tablet and they showed correct positions. I have deleted them and re-posted to both memorial in the correct positions. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Enjoy, Glenn

Phebe Wanser
Donna,
You have posted Phebe Wanser in Brookville Cemebtery, she is the daughter of Garret Bennet and his wife Maria. Could you please link her to her parents and brother? She married Walter Wanser. He is buried in The Old Quaker Cemetery in Wantagh NY.
Thank you so much,
Diane Kennedy

RE: for Jacob Anthony.
Oh okay thank you. I forget that sometimes. I see some duplicates that are a mass memorial and some that are the person themselves. I get confused sometimes over that and don't know whether to leave a flower or not on which memorial. I like to make sure everyone has a flower. If am adding someone to my lists, I get confused as to which one to add. :)

Jane Amm Houghtaling
1. Jane's middle name is Amm (not Ann), probably her maiden name (many Amm families in NY came from Germany, England or Scotland).

2. "Inscription: 54, 7, 22" is her age at death.
The stone says:
AE 54 years, 7 months and 22 days

She died Sept. 29, 1860 at age 54, probably born about 1806.

Thank you,
Lee Ann with help from Tank
