Sorry to flood you with edits, but when I find a pile of information I try to get as much of it on as possible. You had the majority of the memorials the information belonged to. I'm glad you appreciated it.

Please check your date of Maria Reinhart's death. It's listed as 1774, which is also the year her husband (Georg Valentin Reinhart) died but she was buried at sea as they immigrated to the colonies in 1753 (Find A Grave Memorial# 130895990).

Thanks for the photo of the grave site. I walked the entire Wiltwyck Cemetery. I must have missed it.

|Tom Nelson||No surname for Agneta or Maria|
Good morning, Donna! You were questioning my decision to not post a surname for these two baby girls who didn't thrive. According to my short list of "Edits sent to me that I declined", you and I went through this same matter last February. As I explained at that time, I didn't make this decision lightly and only arrived at it after consultation with my Swedish cousin who, by the way, is also a Find A Grave member. As he explained it, during the 19th century, Swedish children were routinely not given a surname and sometimes had to wait until they were in their late 'teens for this to happen. You then made the perfectly reasonable objection that it is impossible to do a "search" for a person without a surname. Which is correct. But I then countered that I couldn't conceive of a situation where anyone would conduct a search for a child who never lived beyond the age of 2. They would search for a parent and then find the child listed among his or her children.
Now, I suppose if you still feel strongly about this, you could submit this matter to the administrators who could then make their ruling. But then they would have to decide what the surname should be. An adult daughter of "Nils Waldemarsson" would have taken either the surname "Nilsdotter" or "Waldemarsson". But a baby girl? It just didn't happen. As I understand it.
Anyway, have a nice weekend and a great New Year!!
Tom in Kansas City, MO

Do you take pictures and post, or just those related to you? There's a stone pictured who I believe is my cousin's father-in-law. I've sent the info to her as well!

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

|David DeRitter||RE: Photo Request Problem - Emma Lamerson|
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.

|Ada Green||RE: Mufson.|
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.

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!

|Edward Bauer||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

|N.J "Joanna" Patterson||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.”

|N.J "Joanna" Patterson||Genealogy|
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.

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.

|Roxy Triebel||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.

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!
