RE: Fannie and Samuel Ballantyne
Awesome, I am so very glad someone else was able to find those stones. Really, sometimes I wonder about myself! But yes, I will certainly link the parents as you ask.

I got a lot of help from Tony, the groundskeeper at Oak Cliff Cemetery in Derby. He is master of his own little kingdom there. It is a truly lovely little cemetery, very gracefully laid out and managed.

Glad to help, sorry I missed the other members of your family!

All the best

Hallo Melinda, I stopped by to visit Mrs. Heany and realised you paid her a visit as well. I had it in my calendar to visit her and my friend Harry. They both have a same day celebration.

Also thought about saying hallo to you as well.

Take care,

RE: Edwin...
I'm so glad you like it!!
I get worried sometimes that might upset somebody!I can get a little carried away. I just look at pictures sometime when they come up on the home page. If I see someone that I can't help but look a little closer. :)
Where in New York are you looking? Have you got a tree on ancestry by any chance? Just wondering. I will be happy to help if i can.
Enjoy the picture!!

Hallo Melinda, I wanted to apologise for the late reply to your message. I thought I had answered back, until now.

In general doing fine, thanks for your concern. I do hope all is well with you.

I visited Edwin, and was surprised to see a cleaned up fotograf of the one you posted on his profile.

I do love visiting your family when I can, thank you so much for your positive output.

My pleasure, I'm just sorry that is the case, always a bit of a let down when there is no monument. It's been the case a lot in my family, we've always been little worker bees, not wealthy, going all the way back to colonial times. This, as I said, is a very small yard, it only took an hour to walk the entire thing and take a raft of pics.

RE: Eleanor Pearce
Hi Melinda - I'm not related so no need to transfer. I was just doing the same as you and took photos of additional family members to link. Me too - I'm always hoping family will come forward to claim the profiles/photos I've created and discover their relatives. I live close by in New Baltimore. Thanks for your note and much appreciate all your photography too~

RE: Thank You!!
You are welcome, Melinda :) The cemetery is in the country back on a hill. Thankfully, the caretaker lives at its' entrance and it was in good condition. It's a small place and very peaceful.

Glad I could help! :)

RE: P.S...
Hello Melinda,

The flag was already at Moses Stickney's grave site and it was fun finding and walking around that grave yard. I took photo's of all the graves and will be working on adding the names and photo's here.

Hi Melinda,
You're very welcome, glad to help. I also added the photo to the memorials of their two children, William & Charles.
I took that photo last summer. I'm still not caught up with posting the photos I took last year.
Sincerely, Ron Kinney

Thank you for your message, I thought Edwin would have liked to have his Parents' Memorials sponsored.

I feel priviledged to have done so.

Today is His Angel day.

Time does go fly by us so quick...doesn't it?

Sending a smile your way.

Hi Melinda,

Thanks for the nice token message on my mom's memorial, as well as your kind message.

I have changed my email since we last emailed,
so I will be contacting you soon.

We are doing well here. Thank you for asking.

Are you in the "upper" Michigan or "under the bridge", aka Trolls, LOL. We have had a very mild winder so far here in New England.

Hang in there, Spring will be here before we know it!

Your friend, Darlene

Hi Melinda,

I was going through my friends' list to see who I have not "flowered" in a while,
I'm so sorry I have not been to your memorials lately.

I hope all is well with you and yours.

RE: You Are So Kind

Hi Melinda,

You're most welcome and thank you so much for the message.

Usually when I sit down to visit on this site, I lose all track of time. I get to reading the bios and following the links until I simply run out of them. If I go to a memorial, I just have to leave a token. It's like visiting the cemeteries - I can't stop until either I'm exhausted or they shut the gates. LOL

Have a great evening! Fondly, Suse
