RE: Oscar Seaman
Did you purchase the picture of the grave? The picture of Oscar himself was put on by another contributor and I'm contacting him regarding that picture. I just want to make sure I give credit where credit is due!

Thank you!

I'm working on a volume of grave locations for veterans of Co. M, 15th NY Heavy Artillery. Could I have your permission to use the pictures you posted of Oscar Seaman's grave in this compilation? I will cite you as the source.

Thank you.

RE: Red Men Cemetry
Laura, I do not remember if they were side by side - but size, shape, and coloring of stones are similar. My normal methodology for photographing a cemetery is to include a "Family" stone if one is available and then the individual stone - placing both on Find A Grave. I didn't indicate any relationship between Martin Murray or Anna Murray, so nothing was found onsite to indicate there may have been one. I would need to make another trip to the cemetery to find your answer. I am currently out of state for awhile. If you need sooner, I'd suggest a request for photo and include what you are looking for. If you can wait, I will go to cemetery when I return from travel. Good luck with your research - and thanks for being a Find A Grave volunteer.

Celia Hotchkin 35635339
Hi Laura...Any chance you know where the birthdate for Celia came from? I have a SAR application with her listed with the birthdate of 9 May 1844. I have however, found this application to have other errors on it as well as some correct information, so I am trying to discern which is which.

Thanks...Kathy

RE: Hallets
Hi Laura
The birthdate on findagrave for Mortimer was in correct, he was born around 1840 and I have got that corrected. He and his family where pretty easy to follow from New York, through Minnesota to Iowa and ultimately Forest Grove, Or. I am currently trying to find a living relative so I can order a military headstone through the VA.
Also I think Theodore may have been born in 1814 not 1812, records show him being born around 1814-1815.

Alfred Day- Ellenville
Someone had sent me a photo of Alfred. My confusion with the Alfred Days is: This Alfred Day is almost the twin of my gr-grandmother Electra Jane Day. Yet, the ages don't add up. I have my Alfred born around 1815 and children born in the 1850s. None of the children are Harvey BUT according to the land records- there was a Harvey Decker "also known as Day". He inherited land from my Alfred Day along with Electra Jane and siblings.

Can this be the right Alfred but the census have the wrong years? My Alfred married Jane Avery. You seemed to have knowledge of the Days from your posting.

RE: Wawarsing
I had a little problem finding the cemetery but was so happy when I did. Most of the stones are so very old. I would like to go back and just start taking photo's of all the stones. There are large numbers of differnt families buried there. The cemtery itself was beauitful. Seems like it is being well taken care of. There also are many stones that are beyond readable. I tried to full fill everyones photo request for that cemetery but sadly to say I could not.
I did happen across some of my own family members while I was there. I have a lot of relatives from that area. I am so happy that I could make you happy.

virtual cemetery C War 20th regiment

Laura,
Was looking thru the listing for the 2oth regiment(Ulster Guards) My ggGrandfather served in this regiment. The entry for Jesse Kidney is incorrect. You have Jesse Kidney JR listed here. he was born 1872, after the war. Barbara Lockwood has an entry for the Senior Jesse Kidney and a photo on fidagrave as well. I believe that's the one you want to link/list here. My ggrandfather was a Robert J Kidney who also served with the 20th/80th.I have him listed on findagrave, if you want to link him to your listing. Barbara and I are researching if they were cousins. Barbara also has Jesse's brother Willet Kidney on findagrave. He also served with the 20th/80th Regiment. Thankya Debby

Laura, Thank you for the transfer.
I do not have a photo of Joseph Clark. I have nothing to compare the Civil War photo to. I think it's great to have the picture!
Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Thanks again,

Restoration Projects
Our cemetery has actually just set up a restoration group and we invite the public to join us and come out and learn how to properly clean the stones, always the last Friday of the month and the Saturday after, during the weather permitting months.

My daughter is joining 4-H this year and may end up making this one of her projects.

Will talk more later. :-)

I do not have a list right now. But one of my projects is revisiting all of them at the cemetery, making sure they are clean and that they all have a flag holder in place. I will be making a list as I go along. I will keep in touch.
