According to my records Lorenzo Keyes #58269682, 9 year old son of Solomon Keyes & Sophia Stearns, was born on 23 Mar 1824 & died on 10 May 1833.
The headstone picture is not clear so I was wondering if the 1818 death year on this Lorenzo is correct, then this is a different Lorenzo Keyes. Could you verify this for me.

RE: Pamelia White Quant
I sent you an email a week ago or so about Pamelia White Quant asking how you came out with the name Wight rather than White as my grandmother had spelled it.

You indicted it must have been a slip of the fingers.

Are you sure? I was not challenging you but rather I was seeking another confirmation that Wight was correct. Edinburg(h) New York is a very small town and the census' from the US in 1850 and New York in 1855 conflict. One lists Jacob (#79710714) and Anna (#79710712) as Wight and the other White. The gravestones are spelled Wight so I normally believe that family members know better than the government agents on how to spell family names.

Also, my grandmother lists Pamelia's parents as Jacob and Anna White. According to the census' there is no other Jacob and Anna in Edinburg let alone another Jacob and Anna Wight (I checked) so I'm quite sure they must be her parents and they are precisely the right age. I was just looking for confirmation from you that the spelling was correct as Wight.

Are you also related to the Quants?

Shields in Calvary Cemetery, Cheboygan
There are over 40 Shield names in the Calvary Cemetery, Cheboygan, Michigan, of which, none are updated or linked to their families. Would you consider transferring them to me for immediate processing? #48478376

RE: Charlotte Gaylord
Dear Laura,

You are most welcome. I was very happy when I saw your grandmas
stone. Those guys really did the work and on their own volition. Few
town agencies would go so far to make restorations

John Gaylord 1714-1778
According to the book "Families of Ancient New Haven" by Donald Lines Jacobus, John Gaylord was born in Durham, Ct and died in Bristol, CT.

While looking for Benjamin Gaylord, I found this information and thought you might want it. There are several pages of Gaylords in this book and if you are interested, I can scan the pages and send them to you in an email. The date range is 1641 to the mid 1800's. These books were written in 1923.

RE: Crawley-Futral Cemetery
I originally found the information in a book at Clayton Library in Houston. The title is _Cemeteries of Spalding County, Georgia, vol.1_, published by the Griffin Historical and Preservation Society in 1986.

I searched for it on the web just now and found that the society has digitized all five volumes of the set.

The link for vol. 1 is:

The CF cemetery is listed on p. A-9. The directions from 1986 are not as accurate now, but I was able to locate the cemetery while on a visit in 2011. If you look at the CF cemetery page here at Find A Grave, you will see it on the map - if you zoom in, you will see a little parallelogram - that is the exact location from GPS coordinates.

RE: Phaneufs
Sorry yes those are Minne and Charles' children. Let me see what I can find about your husband's family. Joseph Phaneuf had a brother Maxime Faneuff and Julianne had a sister Hermine Beaugrand. They too married, so their descendants are my double cousins. There are a variety of spellings.

Nazareth Baptish Church Cemetery, Zebulon
I tried to find the Nazareth Baptish Church Cemetery in Zebulon, Ga and could not. I finally figured out it has changed its name to Open Arms Baptist Church. Do you know how we go about changing the name of a church/cemetery? Bill from Williamson, GA

RE: Lydia Gaylord Hess Montague
You're very welcome Laura! It's always a joy to find these items and then share them on the pages with others. What's so great about it is people get to read it in the actual newspaper print.
As far as how you did it, it's fine. I have just been putting a note at the top of the page that says:

Photo at right
Microfilm archive
Carthage Weekly Banner
Week of September 30, 1886

That way when they look to the right at the photo, they know that's what your referencing.
However you want to do it is fine. :)

RE: East Line Cemetery/Inyo Co, CA
I got the list of names from the cemetery office years ago. There is also a West Line Street Cemetery. There could be burials in East Line Street that the office does not know about. I know for a fact that they were digging for a burial and came across a casket that was not on their list as being buried in that location. I have a contact with the Supervisor. I can ask for an email or phone number if you want to contact the office. Let me know. Anne

Oops ... Mary B. (Bonner?) Harper Horton
Do "not" have any proof/documentation. Her date of birth of 1794 would be between William Turner Harper, Jr., b. 1792 and Wyatt Harper, b. 1799.

Mary B. (Bonner?) Harper Horton (1794-?)
Looking at the possibility she was the d/o William Turner Harper (#60714586) and Sarah Jane "Sallie" Bonner (#60714767). Do no have any proof/documentation. I'm descended from Edward Harper's (m. Ann Turner) sister, Frances Ann Harper (m. Thomas Hunt, Jr.). Their parents were William Harper and Frances (Wyatt) Harper, Sr. So we are Harper cousins!

RE: Mason & Cyntha Wilkie
You are so welcome. I was just sick to find it fallen and broken. I will be going back over in a few days and will try to get it closer together in a better position and will take more water to wash it down some more. If I can get a better picture I will post it. The storm clouds that produced the Joplin tornado was moving over us so we cut our search short that afternoon to get back to Vinita before a storm hit.

RE: Sarah & Fannie Wilkins
Hi Laura,
You are quite welcome, I did search for William Wilkins gravesite without success.
The graves of Fannie and Iona are side by side and both have a marked but unidentified gravesite adjacent, one of which could be that of William Wilkins. I left his photo request unclaimed, perhaps another volunteer will have more success.

I have posted all I got of Crawley. I know of some kids I missed, but I got all of the Adults that had headstones. I don't know where the rest that are posted are in cemetery. There are some head markers with foor markers but no names. There are cement slabs in Crawley area and Hamilton area. I will go again another day. The sun too hot and the yellow jackets kept stinging me, so I had to leave. FYI Ed

Crawley Cemetery, nr. Orchard Hill, Lamar Co., GA
Deleted Mahala "Mahaly" (Cottingham) Crawley name as being the m/o Stephen Kern Crawley (1806-1878). LDS rec.ds., are he m. 2nd., May 20, 1875, Pike Co., GA to Jane F. Wagner Rec'ds., are showing James Crawley m. Dec. 20, 1813, Jasper Co., GA. Mahala "Mahaly" Cottingham. So who was James Crawley's "1st wife"?. By the way, the cemetery is located on the Old Griffin Hwy (or Macon Rd.). It's across from the "Lighthouse Steak and Seafood" restaurant. I've been to the cemetery several years ago, at the time I could not figure out who these Crawleys and other families were.

Crawley Cemetery ...
Laura, If you are familiar with these two counties, Spalding (Griffin being the county seat) and Lamar are neighborning counties. Records are showing the Crawley cemetery as being in Spalding (nr. Griffin); however, due to the county changes the Crawley cemetery (nr. Orchard Hill and Milner) ended up in Lamar County. Originally formed from Monroe and Pike Counties. Have a John Wesley Crawley, Sr., (s/o ?), m. Mary S. V. LeSueur, d/o Stephen LeSueur and his 1st., wife, Lucy Ann Rebecca Wilson. Stephen S. and Andrew J. LeSueur (g-g gf) were brothers. Who were John Wesley Crawley's parents? Thanks, Carol

I am interested in the Stephen White family from NY. They had a daughter, Frances B. White who married Hamilton Brant in Wayne County, NY. I am researching the Brant family from that area. I have placed Hamilton on find-a-grave, but have not located the grave for Frances.

Laura -

You are very welcome.

To answer your question about how I get the text on the photos, I use a free photo program called IrfanView ( which allows me to crop and resize photos easily for uploading to Find a Grave, and also has the feature for inserting text into a picture. It's very handy.
