Ezbon Huyck
I just wanted to let you know that I visited the Weis Library Cemetery today and studied the headstone of Henry Huyck. There isn't any sign of any carvings on the sides where you thought Ezbon's name could be. Sorry.

RE: George and Albertina Potratz
You're very welcome. I wish I could have located actual stones for you, but I'm 99% positive they don't have one. I purchased a map of every plot in that section (my great grandparents are literally right behind the Potratz site) so I had all the names to work with. It was easy to tell if a marker had sunken too - there was enough melted snow and water that left puddles where markers had sunk. Unfortunately, this area, as you can tell by the photo was dry and very level.

RE: Florida Funeral Records
No relation. I was just going through the records. I started in 1891 and I'm well into 1919. At first, I was just adding records for "my" cemetery and others in Orlando. Then I felt guilty for passing up the people who were buried outside of Orlando, so I started looking them up, too. Just added the records if I was sure they matched up. Surprisingly - I'd say 80% of them were on Find A Grave! I hate passing up on the ones that I couldn't match up - but the records usually just had "at destination" as the cemetery and there's always more than one cemetery in a town...

RE: Florida Funeral Records
Hi! Aren't the funeral records fantastic?? I found them online. Just Google "Central Florida Memory" Go to "Collections" and you'll find Carey Hand records from 1891 through the early '50's, I believe. Only Carey Hand made their old records available to this project.

Sometimes, the transcriber can't figure out the name from the handwritten record, and it's misspelled. If you know the death date, you can go by date and find the record that way.

RE: Potratz Graves
I may go back and try another day. Today when I was searching; one of the locals on that side of the cemetery fence apparently was draining their pool and flushing the water into the cemetery; flooding parts of the section I was looking for your request.

But if the breakdown cemetery map I have is correct they should have been in the last row flush with the neighborhood fence line. Honestly it's a mess. Grass is overgrown; broken urns; sunken graves.

The last 5 or 6 rows are all flat graves/markers. So they are covered by high grass; or sunk into the ground.

It has been my experience; that at least 1 spouse, if not both; will have a grave/marker.

Mt Calvary cemetery group is not one of my favorite cemeteries to search. But Mt Calvary cemetery put who's buried at that particular cemetery and breakdown maps online so it makes it helpful to search.

RE: Taylor photo request
Hi Donald,
I'm glad it was able to help you out! Yes, Laneta's grave is beside James's to the right. The section your relatives graves were in is well maintained. I've transferred Sarah's memorial over to you.
Have fun with your research!

Taylor photo request
Hi there,
I posted the photos for your Taylor photo request and added a Memorial for Sarah L. Taylor as well. Let me know if you'd like me to transfer the Memorial to you!
Thanks and wishing you blessings,

Glad to help
It is a fairly large cemetery, however Mr Arnold has done a tremendous job listing and organizing sections in those listings. All the best.

RE: Eldred Family Gravestones
No problem Donald, the dates were a little confusing; was there also a Chauncey Eldred who died in 1969 that you wanted? I looked, but not exhaustively for that one, as I wasn't sure. Send me an email if there is another and I'll go back out there. Interesting footnote, last year I looked for a Peleg Eldred in a cemetery in Cato-Meridian, which is a near by town. (any relation)That was my only Find A Grave failure. The entire cemetery has been "dismantled" by the town, i.e., the tombstones have all been laid down and the turf has overgrown them. It is just a field with a flagpole in the middle. Sad state of affairs, some of the cemeteries in upstate NY.

RE: Dunn Family
I didn't go to the office, and they wouldn't have data on them anyway. Cemeteries just plant people, don't care much who they were. You're welcome, and good luck filling in the blanks.

You're welcome. I did not run across any other Paulsons. If I do in the future I will post them.

Many thanks for an excellent job, Don! I visited this cemetery two years ago and for some reason, missed photographing this particular interment. Unfortunately, gas prices will continue to keep me from traveling to New York for the foreseeable future. Thank heaven for folks like you who are willing to take up the slack!
