Peter was my GG Grandfather. I would like any information you may be able to help with. When and where in German did he come from? Did his parents come with him? I have visited the grave site maybe three times since I started research.
Any information I can share with you I will gladly provide.

William Graves
Hi Paula,

I have linked him to his parents. Let me know if you want any of the family transferred to you. I think there are about 14 that I can transfer if you want. Thanks for the info and have a great day!


P.S.: I love your quilts, very beautiful!

RE: Nathaniel Davis Moore
You're welcome Paula! Isn't it great to find cousins who have been to one of the cemeteries and took photos where we couldn't get one. I just stumbled upon a 5th Cuz Doug A. Moore who was fortunate enough to travel and take some great cemetery and gravestone photos. Connie

Susan I. Grills
Capt. John Babcock
Regarding your posted photo, I don't think it is him. He lived in the 1600s and he is not wearing clothes they wore in the 1600s or even 1700s. He is wearing long pants, which weren't worn until the 1800s. Maybe it is a different Capt. John Babcock. Please check your source.

George Skelly

Hi. I saw the request for a picture of George Skelly's stone. I photographed all the stones that are stored in the Lutheran Church and was unable to find one for him. I did find a stone for his wife. The graveyard was paved over to make room for parking and it seems that the stones were removed before the paving. There is no evidence that the graves were ever relocated. There are many stones missing and no one seems to know what happened to them. What stones do exist are stored in the basement of the church.

I'm sorry that it seems that George's stone may never be found.

RE: Frances Veerkamp/Richard Nance
Hi Paula, I am not sure who the toddler in the picture of Richard Nance is. My first guess would be that it could be my mother, but I'm not 100% sure because the face doesn't seem quite right compared to other young photos I have of her... but then again it is so hard to tell at such a small age. If it isn't her then my next guess would be that it could be one of her cousins? I do know for sure this picture was taken in Pilot Hill, because the tree he is standing in front of is a sycamore, and there are many of these he planted all over our family property there, much bigger now of course.

Frances Veerkamp
Hi Paula! I was finally able to acquire and scan that old photo of Frances Veerkamp that my mother has, which I told you about quite a long time ago now. I posted it on Frances' page if you would like to see. It did not have a date written on it but she was much younger in this photo so I presume this is from when she was still married to her 1st husband/ my great-grandfather Richard Nance. I also posted several more photos of him on his page. I hope you had a nice Christmas and Happy New Year! ~Melanie

Episcopal Church in Rye

Glad to see you've recorded my 8ggfather from this cemetery. It's odd that only he and his wife are buried there. Daniel Strang (Le Strang) and his wife Charlotte.

Do you have pictures? Can you tell me anything about the churchyard? Is there still a church there?

He was a tavern owner in the area and I'm trying to find out as much as possible about him.

Thanks for any help you can give me!

I added her maiden name. Is she a relative of yours? Would you like me to transfer her memorial to you?

What beautiful quilts, I especially like the black one. I can only imagine how much work that was.
