Mayflower genealogy
I am doing the ancestry for a person in which Mary White Gaster is a main-line ancester. You implied in your ancestral synopsis for Mary White that her ancestry could be traced back to the Mayflower. I did a small ancestry on John White member of the Boston Tea Party to the early 1900s. Do you have the genealogy for Mary White back to the Mayflower? I would be interested.
Thank you.

Sorry for the late response. We don't know any more than what appears on the headstone- If we get a chance we check him out at the historical society and see what we can find there.

RE: Raymond Williams
Cute story! By the way, what a good looking couple they made. Her dress is breathtaking. I can imagine what it must have looked like in color.

Warm regards, James Mason

Memorial 43163411, Susan (HOOVER) BRIDENSTINE
Are the Rivergrove Cem and Ridgewood Cem, both in North Liberty, Iowa, really the same place?
Your Jacob BROADSTONE family listing in 2009 gave Rivergrove Cem as place of burial for Susan, findagrave gave Ridgewood Cem.

Hi Sharon,

You are very welcome. I'm glad that I could get the photo for you. I first found Find A Grave when I was able to locate photos of my great grandparents' grave about 1300 miles away.

Sharon - I make it a policy not to make additions to memorials based on second hand information but, let me know if you would like me to transfer the memorial to you and you can add all that good information. I'm not related to them at all, so I'd be delighted to have you maintain the memorial. Good luck, Bill

RE: Abigail Miller Picture
You're welcome for the photo.

By the way, is Flauiel Rossiter Miller part of Abigail's family? She has a page at Find A Grave Memorial# 7393661 and her headstone is adjacent to Abigail's.

Isaac Bonnell at First Presbyterian Church
I saw your request for a photo of Isaac Bonnell's grave. There is only one Isaac Bonnell/Bonnel registered in this graveyard and he died in 1833. He is buried with his son in grave 1734, but the marker is no longer there. Are you certain this Isaac is in First Presbyterian in Elizabeth?

I have made the corrections to the Ayers memorials, would you mind double checking to ensure that they are correct now? Also, if there are any other Ayers that have not been properly placed or if there are links to the family that have not been made, please feel free to contact me and let me know. I like to be as accurate as possible.

Susan Hoover Memorial
Noted discrepancy in information on Memorial for Susan Hoover now owned by a Phillips. Her memorial says second wife of James Bridenstine was a Cornelia from Indiana. Does not match your information. Perhaps you should make contact with that owner and find the problem. Maybe there is a third wife? Just a heads up.

Hi, I am in the process of documenting all of the buriels in the Basking Ridge cemetery and have posted the wife of Henry Alward Jr's wife. I will be making the links and posting photos. This will take some time, but hope to have it finished within the month. I wanted to let you know because you had a listing here and I have posted a pic to it. Any questions or corrections/additions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

RE: Albert Weston Fenner
Hi Sharon - sorry once again for taking so long to respond to your request. I have went ahead and transferred management of this memorial for Almer over to you.

I thought that I had explained the connection of the Fenner family to mine in another email but perphaps not. I actually traveled to Cedar Falls purposely to find the burial locations of the Fenner family and also while there did some research. I have a few newspaper articles on this family and also some pictures, as I'm sure you are aware, they were pretty well known this in area.

I am from Iowa and my connection to this family is through my grandmother. Her brother Donald Reese married a Virginia Lee House and her parents were Oran Earl House and Marion Fenner. She was the daughter of Almer Weston Fenner and Forrest Rose Laura Preston.

I have had a great interest in the Fenner family because of Virginia Lee House-Reese and have taken alot of time taking pictures, research and adding Fenner memorials to Find-A-Grave.

I would really appreciate it very much if you wouldn't mind, keeping me updated of any additional information on this family. I would be very interested in sharing any information that I have with you and hopefully, you would do the same.

Again, sorry for taking so long, I have had some medical issues which have kept me away from my computer.

Hope for a Happy New Year for you and your family.

Linda Lee-Goebel

RE: Don Garrison Photo Request
You are very welcome. There were two adjacent grave markers of the same or similar design, but different last names. I didn't know if there was a relationship, so I photographed them too, just in case. Their names are Gwendolyn R. Earwicker (identically designed marker to Donald Garrison's) and Joseph E. Bates (located between Donald and Gwendolyn). There may be no relationship, I just thought since the two outer markers matched, it may have been a related group. Let me know if there is a relationship, and I can post those photos as well.
