Mathew TenEyck
Hi Dan,
I found his headstone and will post a picture of it shortly. However, there is another memorial in the Old Hurley Burial Ground f.a.g. roster for Elizabeth Peek TenEyck in which the person who created the memorial states that she is, according to the Daughters of the American Revolution records, the wife of this TenEyck. (I am accustomed to running across inaccuracies in these old applications for SAR and DAR memberships.) You may wish to suggest to him that I believe this is most likely the husband of Cornelia Wynkoop TenEyck. Their markers are side by side, and are of the same shape and material. They're in my family tree (I spell it Ten Eyck), and I haven't yet found his specific military record. (There are people by this name all over the place in the records.) He was slightly old for the Revolution, although certainly not ineligible, and not around for the War of 1812. If he was indeed a Private, he may have been in the Ulster County, NY Militia.
Best wishes to you!

Staatz graves, Lyona Cemetery
Thank you for all your good work on the Lyona Methodist Cemetery. The big stone house there near the church, was built by my direct ancestor, Charles William Staatz, who died in the typhoid epidemic of 1887. Also the Oesterreich family, relatives of his wife Friederika Oesterreich Staatz. I just wondered what you meant by "transfer ownership" according to Find A Grave rules.
I have two papers on the Staatz family and all whom they intermarried with, including the Biegerts and Jahnkes. If you still have some unanswered questions I would be glad to do some lookups for you.

RE: Biegert photo
You are welcome. Theora Stacey is buried next to him. Perhaps she was his wife and remarried after Donald passed???

I created a record for Minnie M. Minick.
Do you think this might be one and the same as
Maria ? Her grave is right beside that of Cambridge.

Photo Request (Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens)

I have been doing some of the photo request for this cemetery, and I noticed you have requested photo's for Lois (Scates) Holmes and Roy Holmes, but you do not have any info on them. Do you have any type of birth date for Lois or Roy Holmes, or even a date of death or either of them.

The Cemetery office will have a big problem, trying to locate them, with out any info. If you can send me a message it any info, that would help in your request for your photo's of the headstones.

The Chapel Hill Memorial Garden cemetery in Kansas City, Ks. it truely large, the have over 12, 000 buried there, and I am still coming across graves that are not recorded on find-grave. I also take extra of the headstones around the requested one's, and I am always adding to the file.

Thank you,

James H. Griffith #92498794
FYI--I seem to recall we had large discussion back & forth on the above site for the husband of Adelaide Staatz Griffith. Her husband, James H. Griffith, was located by a photographer on Easter in Maplewood Memorial Lawn in Emporia. I don't know how original photgrapher missed this one considering large Griffith tombstone on plot. Nevertheless, he was interred in Maplewood in Griffith Family Plot.

RE: keefers
You are welcome. Sorry I could not help with Laura, there is no marker but I have sent a message to the manager of the memorial to enter Laura's gravesite section and grave number. I see now her husband David has not been located. There is an unmarked grave between Laura and Andrew, perhaps David. I will check cemetery records to see if I can find him.

Helen Low Van DerWerker
Hi Dan,

I received your edits concerning Helen, but am confused by the second one where you said to disregard the first. In the 2nd one you said she married Othelbert Low AFTER Vanderwarker passed away, however, the burial record lists her maiden name as LOW and the married surname as Van DerWerker, implying that your 1st email would be correct. These Van Derwerker/Vanderwerken's are going to drive us all nuts :)

As to the space between Van DerWerker, or the capitalization of the W, I always just enter the name as it appears in the burial record.

I'll hold off making any changes, and we can keep on searching :)

Confusing - Ten Eyck Low
Hi Dan,

I am very confused about Ten Eyck Low(63198432), son of Cornelius Low(61833920) & his wife Hannah Finch(61876841)

I have a Ten Eyck Low in the Cadiz Cemetery, Cadiz(part of Franklinville, Cattaraugus County, NY

This Ten Eyck Low was born in 1806-1863)
(97826123). He was in the War of 1812. His parents are also Cornelius Low & Hannah Finch was his mother.

OK, were there 2 brothers named Ten Eyck?
To get there to that Ten Eyck Low, just type in
Ten Eyck Low & see what you come up with.

Please let me know what you think & how are we going to find out which one is the (Real McCoy, please excuse the pun.

HELP !!!

Sincerely, Laurie

RE: King request
Hi Dan: I'll make your suggested correction before I transfer. Hopefully, their information agrees with yours. Chris

Gwynne King
Hi Dan: I have never had this happen before, but I got two requests for Gwynne within an hour of each other. Yours for a change of parents and another from a second cousin asking me to transfer the memorial. If you are a closer relative and want me to transfer the memorial to you, let me know. A second cousin is way out of the Findagrave guidelines, but since I am of no relation, I will usually honor such a request. Chris
