RE: Sophie Ruland Pettygrove
You are welcome. It was actual a lucky find. A few years ago I purchased a very large stack of Washington Territorial news papers but the shipper did not package them well and they were reduced to just 1000 of pieces. Only recently I started to sort them to see if there was anything salvageable when I ran across it.

RE: re Edward McCabe, Calvary Cemetery
6 gravers including myself teamed up to walk these hold sections working on the many requests. Not a straight line in most of these sections so an extra set of eyes really helps. That is just a photo of the section with the section sign in it as well.

RE: re Jacob MORGAN 1716-1792
Please send me a "suggestion" message directly from the memorial page in question with changes you would like made. Makes it easier for me to interpret.
Thanks for your help.

I have made the comments you suggest and unlinked David from Jacob. Thanks.
The weather here today was indeed glorious. April is always a very special month in Berks county.
Cheers, Neil

RE: Causes of death
Also - I'll see if I can find any obits - the very early ones are almost impossible to find - but I should be able to find them if they are in the 1920s-present and in Central NY....

RE: Causes of death
Celia - I won't lose your email now!!! No problem - I really like doing this - and helping others - so that hopefully it'll come back to me when I need help!!!

If you have any more Oakwood Cemetery needs - let me know - they have been wonderful with letting us into their register and entering all of this stuff for everyone to have!! We are about halfway through now (they have about 56,000 burials all together!!!). It is slow-going - but hopefully we'll be done within a year or so......

If I forget to send the lot image - remind me - I'm not sure I will be able to do it tonight - so it might not be until tomorrow night....

Causes of death
Celia - sorry about the previous email - I put spaces in between the person's name and the cause of death - but then it got rid of them!!

So - read it as (last, first, cause of death)

RE: re Jacob Ormsbee, Oakwood Cemetery
Celia - how funny - Lillian Wisner is right there in the Ormsbee lot!!! The Oakwood register had her maiden name as Chase with no parents - so I didn't know how she linked into the Ormsbees until you told me. So I updated both her and Gabriel's memorial to put in the birth info that you supplied me, and hooked her to her parents. See her memorial - 92777406. Notice that both Lillian and Gabriel died in January 1929.

Hope this helps fill in your info!!!


P.S. Send me your email address again (I lost it - sorry) - and I can email you the page from the lot book which shows all of the people buried in that given lot...

RE: re Jacob Ormsbee, Oakwood Cemetery
Celia - the obelisk had nothing on any of the sides - I thought that was a little strange.

Whenever there is something on the sides - I take closer-up shots of each side.... this one had nothing on it - that's why there just the one pic of the obelisk.....

RE: re Jacob Ormsbee, Oakwood Cemetery
Hi Celia -

the sources for the Ormsbee information are from the books that are in Oakwood Cemetery's office.

Every burial they had (in most cases) - they wrote down and put what information they were told at that time....

A friend of mine and I are (slowly) trying to get all of this information into find-a-grave.

So that everyone will benefit!!!

Everything they have in the register we are entering, so there is no further information that they would have.....

RE: Simon Terwilliger photo
You're welcome. If you would like an etching, let me know. I can mail it to you. There are some very nice gentlemen working at that cemetery who take good care of the land and were very helpful to me. I wouldn't mind going back to say hello!

There are seveal other name's inscribed on opposite sides of this monument. Some names are weathered and I would need to bring a pencil and paper to trace the marking's.
One name I can read is (Mary Ellen) but last name was not Terwillinger.

If you ever make it to the Collamer Cemetery. This grave s in the back yard of the one and only home that border's the cemetery.
